Second Contest - Comment for a free Novel

This contest is open to everyone, writing skill or not, but like the other one the winner can only be a US resident. I'm sorry!

It is very simple: if you would like to win a free copy of Noah Boyd's "The Bricklayer," simply comment on this post. I will leave comments open until next Sunday night (the same time I will cut off the fan fiction voting). If there are 50 comments, or 500 comments, whatever, I will use a random number generator to pick the winner out of those comments.

You MUST INCLUDE YOUR FIRST NAME at least! You cannot be Anonymous 5pm, or anyone can claim to be that via email and I can't tell the difference.

You can comment as many times as you want between now and Sunday.

You can read about the fan fiction contest in the original post here, vote on the pieces (information here), and read my take on the book "The Bricklayer," by Noah Boyd, here.

Looking forward to reading this book, even if I don't win. :)

Amanda said...

You should read Face of a Killer and the Bone Collector, both about a female FBI Forensic Artist. Will post later with the author. I would love another book :)

Amanda said...

Oh, and I'm Amanda K, since there are a lot of Amanda's out in the world.

I'm Huei S. Yup, that's pronounced like "way". :)

em-jay said...

Amanda--those books sounds really interesting! Are they fiction? Did you check the author? Sorry if I missed it elsewhere.

Amanda said...

@em-jay I meant Bone Chamber instead of Bone Collector. They are works of fiction, but the author (Robin Burcell), is an actual FBI-trained forensic artist. She also wrote the "award-winning SFPD Homicide Inspector Kate Gillespie novels." (from her bio on the book jacket) I haven't read the Gillespie novels, but I am intrigued now!

Louise said...

Louise from Tennessee. (: Woo hoo!

I think that your second contest is very clever. I appreciated your review of The Bricklayer by Noah Boyd. EileenB eehummel@yahoo.com

I did not see anything in the rules that would keep me from entering both contests.
