I have finally received all the author copies of my books that I ordered (and paid for), and I also have a stack of other people's books that I've managed to score here and there. It's time for a--


This time around it's my new mystery, NICE WORK. I'm giving away three free copies! (Assuming I get three or more comments, that is. *tap tap* Is this thing on?) I'll be doing this once a week for a while, for different novels.

If you'd like to win a free copy of NICE WORK, leave a comment with your contact information (this can be your e-mail in a cryptic format, such as ladiva AT gmail). Comment by next Tuesday, September 18th. You can say anything you like in the comment, as long as it's nice. Let's play nice (unlike the rest of the net, politics-infested as it is. My own MOTHER, aged 83, is in there screaming at the television and insists on staying on the news channels. I keep telling her she's only upsetting herself, but some people enjoy that.)

The winners will be chosen randomly from the commenters by my Pomeranian, Teddy. I'll label his dog treats "1," "2," "3," and so forth, and throw them on the floor. He always gets them and drags them over to his hiding place. Which order will he get them? That will determine the winners! If I only get three comments, then you'll all WIN! You're already winners, you know--in all sorts of other ways. Thanks for reading.

I'm really interested in hearing from readers. Let me know your thoughts on the new Bounty o' Books that is out there, much of it for free on e-readers. Are we better off than we were a couple of years ago, or not? LOL


  1. Are we better off? Not a clue. It is neat to have a lot of books with you in a small container. Free is good, maybe. I have seen free books that I had already read and thought excellent and I have downloaded a few from authors I know about. I've taken some chances on other books and read two that turned out pretty good. I have bought a few at bargain prices, first of a series that I would have had trouble finding elsewhere.

  2. I've always only wanted print books and I have to say I still prefer them. However, I was lucky enough to win an e-reader and have ordered a few of the free books being offered. I think it's a good way to find new authors without spending lots of money. It's also a space saver! lol

  3. I think anything that allows authors and readers more options is a good idea. In practice there are still a few kinks to work out.

  4. I was given a Kobo Reader as a gift, and I have quite a few books on it, but haven't read any of them yet. ;-( Of course, I also have dozens of packing boxes in my garage marked "Unread Books", along with bookshelves (plural) in every room, that are overflowing. And yet I still buy books, all kinds of books. I want to hold them, read them, smell them, let them take me to another reality. So as long as authors keep writing, I'm all good.
