In which we’re giving books away–AGAIN!

Alright, darlings, we’re doing this ONE MORE TIME! My darling agent has sent eight of her copies of A SPEAR OF SUMMER GRASS, and I’m tossing in two of my copies so we’ll have TEN winners. Same bits as last time–if you’re chosen, please consider leaving a review of the book and the more platforms the better!

Here’s all you need to know: to enter, leave a comment on this post. The contest will close at noon eastern time or when we hit 200 entries, whichever comes first. The winners will be chosen by random number generator and will receive a confirmation email today. There will also be a blog post announcing the winners as soon as they’re chosen. If you respond to the confirmation email today, your copy will go out TOMORROW!

Also, I am chatting TONIGHT at Writerspace about FAR IN THE WILDS! If you want to talk about this peek into Ryder’s Africa, join me at 9pm eastern. This chat is devoted to all of Writerspace’s new releases; if you can’t make it, I’m doing a dedicated chat for FAR IN THE WILDS next week. Come visit me!

ETA: KNEW there was something I forgot to mention! The comments are moderated, so please enter once only. Duplicates will be deleted. Thanks!

ETA: Contest now closed, my dears! Random winners to be posted in a few minutes…
