So look what came in the mail yesterday? Yay! It really exists! So I guess I should give one of these babies away, right? Leave a comment to enter. It didn’t hit me until last night *duh* that release day for BELLE CHASSE is the same day as the U.S. presidential election. And if you find that whole scenario as depressing as I do, why not have a book arriving that day into which you can escape? Just sayin’…preorders and all that.
Anyway, congrats to the Cubbies and the Indians on a well-played World Series. I am not a big fan of baseball (remind me to tell you my story about the Houston Astros and the nuns sometime), but have a soft spot for the Cubbies because I lived in the Chicago area for a while and their fans are so loyal. It reminds me of living in New Orleans when the Saints won so seldom that all the diehard fans called them the “Ain’ts” and wore brown paper bags over their heads.
So, there are a couple of weeks left in the BLACK DIAMOND blog tour. Today there is supposed to be an interview at THE BOOK JUNKIE’S READS, but it hasn’t shown up…this seems to be a recurring problem in recent tours. If it shows up later in the day, however, you’ll be able to enter for the tour prizes at that site.
Next week, the BELLE CHASSE tour begins as the BLACK DIAMOND tour wraps up. The prizes for the Belle Chasse tour are the same $100 total in gift cards to Amazon or Book Depository credits–but these are separate tours so that’s two sets of prizes. As always, I’ll have the day’s links here on the blog.
BLOG SUBSCRIPTION NEWS. I have the brilliant assistant Kim trying to figure out why some of you are subscribed to the blog but not getting email updates…and also why the social media share buttons have disappeared. The Great October Blog Crash messed up a lot of stuff. Thanks for bearing with me.
Finally….oh, right. To win a signed copy of BELLE CHASSE, just make a guess. In Belle Chasse, Jean Lafitte gives DJ a Christmas gift: what do you think it is? (And if you’ve read an ARC of the book, you can enter the giveaway by answering “I know but enter me anyway.”)
