The quick commercial message (yeah, I know, they get old, but they help pay for this blog, after all!l): I have a Q-and-A up today over at the Booksniffers Anonymous website and am giving away (internationally) to one commenter a choice of signed print book, ebook (with book plate) or audiobook. They ran a review of Redemption on Sunday, and I’m back today answering questions. And you can find out if I, too, am a closet booksniffer! Stop by and say hello.
Also, imagine you’re a vampire. Why would you want to join a communal living situation in the boondocks of East Alabama? You can find out at A Great Book is the Cheapest Vacation today, where I’m guest-blogging as part of the Redemption Virtual Tour. Stop by and check out the reasons…and enter again for the giveaways.
Now…I have a cool-looking book to feature today…CUTTLEFISH…and it’s brand new. Even better. It’s an alt history, which is a genre I’d like to read more of. It’s written by Dave Freer, an ichthyologist by training, who lives in Tasmania. His background as a commercial diver, fisheries scientist, and a chef at a game lodge reads like fiction in itself, but he’s written his own A Mankind Witch and Dragons Ring as well as coauthoring books with Eric Flint and Mercedes Lackey.
So, ready to read some alt history? You know the drill–leave a comment for an entry. Have you read any alt history? If so, what was your favorite? I always enjoy the retellings of the Jack the Ripper story. I even read a YA book called Ripper not long ago. As always, extra entries for blog follow, Twitter follow @Suzanne_Johnson, and a Tweet or Retween, so four entries possible.
