Giveaway at the New Bookstore in Town 5

Balloons and books at Book View CafeWe’ve officially launched our new bookstore over at Book View Café, and we’re giving away books to celebrate.

It’s been quite a process getting to this milestone, as vividly described a couple of weeks ago by Linda Nagata, whose WordPress-fu was indispensable to the effort. We’ve been running the bookstore in “stealth” mode since then, and aside from a few mysterious rumblings and hissings from the basement (which could as easily be a dragon or Dr. Ovamilla’s steam-powered nostriscope acting up again), nothing has blown up. So it’s entirely safe for you, dear reader, to drop in and browse. No hard hats required.

To make you welcome, we’re giving you a chance–no, multiple chances–to win the book of your choice. Just drop in any time between June 1 and June 7 and choose the book you want. Eligible books are marked with a gold star–that’s just about everything except omnibus editions and the Breaking Waves anthology.

Then come back here and leave a comment with the name and author of the book and why you want it (we may use that comment for publicity purposes). When the promotion ends, the comment posted closest to a date and time I’ve already chosen is the winner, and if you’re the winner, I’ll send you a coupon for the book of your choice. You can also enter to win at the bookstore itself, and on the other member sites listed in the Grand Opening Celebration post.


I paid for this argument!

    Okay, I’ll Bite.

    I would want the second Exordium collaboration you did with Sherwood Smith, Ruler of Naught. Why? I already own the first, for one thing. For another, I trust I am going to like the first based on our mutual friend and acquaintance Fred Kiesche’s recommendation…

    I’d love to win a copy of the second Exordium book you did with Sherwood Smith, Ruler of Naught. I have them all as paperbacks but would love to read the new editions as ebooks. Thanks for doing this.

    OK! The date and time I had chosen was Wednesday, June 6 at 9:00 AM, so Francene wins a copy of Ruler of Naught. I’ll send off a coupon momentarily. Thanks to all for participating!
