Boneshaker Book Giveaway

UPDATE, 1:36pm: All the copies are claimed. But you should still get a copy for yourself in the old-fashioned “go out and buy one” manner, because it’s excellent.

Hey, kids! My pal and Subterranean Press publisher Bill Schafer is having a giveaway of Boneshaker, the absolutely spectacular new novel by Cherie Priest, which officially hits stores tomorrow. Bill’s got 25 copies, and one of them could be yours. Here’s what he has to say about that:

Folks who want a copy (US residents only, sorry) should drop me an email (subpress@gmail.com) with the subject line “BONESHAKER.” In order to be eligible for a copy, they must be willing to read the book in the next two weeks and post a review to Amazon.

Note: when we run promotions like these, we receive far more emails than we can respond to, so please don’t query to see if you’ve won a copy. You’ll just have to wait and see if a happy extra package shows up in your mailbox in the next few weeks.

Don’t delay people! Do it now! NOW!

And also, for those of you who want to know more about the book, check out Cherie’s steampunklicious site The Clockwork Century. We also have Cherie scheduled for a Boneshaker Big Idea in a couple of weeks, so you have that to look forward to as well. Life is good.

The Next Couple of Weeks, Schedulewise

Because I like to get ahead of these things, I should note that this week and next it’s likely to be slow around here, on account that this week, I have a couple of projects I absolutely need to finish up (which will likely involve me yanking out the DSL line for several hours a day until they’re done) and next week I’m at Viable Paradise, brutally dismantling genially encouraging novice science fiction/fantasy writers. I’m busy with work both weeks, basically.

Yes, I know, I always say I’m going to be scarce and end up blogging silly amounts. However a) if I do, it’ll be after I have actual work done, b) it’ll be a bonus. Just managing expectations, is all. That said, over the next couple of weeks I have a lovely line-up of Big Idea entries scheduled, so there’s always that to look forward to. See, even when I’m busy I’m thinking about you. I’m just that way.
