Belle Chasse is in da House, Baseball, Tour News, and #Giveaway

fullsizerenderSo 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.”)

  1. I grew up in Houston and went to many Astros games. I remember the TV news breaking into regular coverage to announce that the team had changed it’s name from the Colt 45’s to the Astros. They were soooo bad when I was watching them.
    Go Cubs!

  2. I know… or rather I did, but now I can’t remember for the life of me because I’ve since read 3 other books. *facepalm* Now I’m going to have to go back and re-read. Because I am pretty sure I remember, but…. Anyhow, I’d love to have a signed copy for my bookshelf… Thank you! 🙂

  3. I could see him giving her something either thoughtful that she would like, or something ridiculous that she would shake her head at… so I’m going to go with choice #1 and say a good updated holster for carrying her elven staff?

  4. I’m going to guess he gives her something he considers appropriate clothing. I’m also guessing it doesn’t go over well!
