I’m taking a break from blogging for a while, but I’m still active at Book View Cafe. This group of authors includes such folks as Ursula K. Le Guin, Laura Anne Gilman, Patricia Rice, Judith Tarr, Sherwood Smith, and a whole bunch more.
The great thing about BVC is they’ve recently revamped their bookstore. Which means their having a big hoopty do grand opening celebration with lots of…stuff. They’re discounting their anthologies and running a contest for some lucky person to win a free e-copy of his or her choice of BVC book.
The promotion runs until June 7 at the BVC website. You can get more information here: http://bookviewcafe.com/bookstore/grand-opening-celebration/
Basically, you enter the bookstore (http://www.bookviewcafe.com), browse around, find something that interests you. (Eligible titles are marked with a gold star.) Once you decide which BVC book you’d love to have more than anything else in the whole wide world, leave a comment telling BVC which book you want and why (you have to do both).
A bunch of members are also holding giveaways at their own sites. Here’s a list: Maya Kaathryn Bonhoff, Chaz Brenchley, Patricia Burroughs, Jeffrey Carver, Amy Sterling Casil, Laura Anne Gilman, Lois Gresh, Kit Kerr, Katharine Eliska Kimbriel, Kelly McClymer, Vonda N. McIntyre, Nancy Jane Moore, Linda Nagata, Pati Nagle, Steven Harper, Phyllis Irene Radford, Patricia Rice, Madeleine Robins, Deborah J. Ross, Sherwood Smith, Jennifer Stevenson, Judith Tarr, Dave Trowbridge. If you see any of your faves there, head over to their blogs to try and win something there as well.
I haven’t had time to put a contest together for this, but if anybody wants a free ecopy of any of my BVC titles: (We, Robots; Tritcheon Hash; Uncategorized; The Textile Planet) let me know and I’ll put something together. You can find info on my titles here: http://bookviewcafe.com/bookstore/bvc-author/sue-lange/.
Let the games begin!
