Real quick one this week.
First off, we have giveaways happening. FOUR to be precise. Here are the details:
The first one is on the STORMDANCER Goodreads page. Just click to enter, bam, done. This closes in 3 days, and there’s hardbacks up for grabs.
The second one is on the STORMDANCER FB page. You need to like my page to enter (which is a process I find as ugly as a hatful of scrotums, but FB makes you do this). Click on my author page and hit the STORMDANCER tab. Bam, done. You have about 8 days to enter this one, and you could win an ARC.
Third is the contest listed in the post below. You can win a signed set of the first three IRON DRUID CHRONICLES books, plus a signed ARC of STORMDANCER. All you need to do is pimp my new website either on Twitter or Facebook. All the details are below. This one closes in four days.
Lastly, there another signed ARC of STORMDANCER up for grabs, along with a bunch of other goodness. All you need to do is host a STORMDANCER widget on your site/blog/whatever. Details are here. Entries close at the end of the month.
Publisher Weekly, which is kinda THE industry mag as far as publishing goes, just listed STORMDANCER in their top 10 SF/F/Horror picks for Fall. Which is pretty awesome.
Also, the first three chapters of STORMDANCER will be online at from this Friday, 29 June.
Sample my warez. First hit’s free! 🙂

    That’s awesome, congrats on the top 10 mention! 😀

  2. I have two things to say here:
    Firstly – to all the other fans who are so anxious to get their hands on this book: Neener, neener, neener! I got an ARC at ALA and so I am reading it NOW!!!
    Secondly – to Jay: I had entered the Goodreads and FB contests already so IF I win the hardback or a fabulous SIGNED ARC – I will happily send my unsigned and slightly soggy because I was reading it by the pool and it is so exciting I dropped it in a puddle of Hawaiian Tropic tanning oil which did make it smell nice but kinda ruffled its pages a little ARC to a runner-up of your choosing.
    And um, I’m totally telling everybody I found you first!

    Brilliant to hear Jay. This is success the way it is meant to be…happening to those I may even have a chance to borrow money off:).
    No. Not that. Worthy. Those I may even think worthy.
    I have pre-ordered the shit out of several copies already so winning them is unnecessary now and I will leave it to others to chase you around the social media circus that has taken the once aloof you and cast you anew in this painted media whore you have become.
    No. Not that. Media Savvy icon you have become. That.

  4. Top 10? Sweet.
    As for the chances to win … done those. Fingers crossed.
    Free chapters? I’m on them like stink on – well you know. 😉

    Damn, that’s pretty ugly…
    Congrats on the top ten. 🙂

    Congrats for the top-ten rating 🙂 I’ll be sure to check out the first three chapters while you’re on your way to set the world on fire 😀

  7. MTG Reviews says:

    So, you make the top ten (CONGRATS!!) but doesn’t that mean that we get to read the first TEN chapters? You know, just to follow the same theme… No? Drat. You can’t blame me for trying! 😉 Can’t wait to read the three chapters! (And again, CONGRATS!)

    So…when do we find out who won?

    • I generally don’t announce winners due to privacy concerns. Had a bad experience with that many moons ago, and learned a valuable lesson. If you win, I contact you via email/twitter/smoke message.
      If I haven’t contacted you yet, you didn’t win 🙁 I’m very sorry 🙁
      If it makes you feel better, that lady who won seemed lovely and was very excited
