But if you’re curious and want to test-drive Banks’ writing style, or you’re a fan of the series and want every last bit of it, you can thank your lucky St. Martin (patron saint, if you’re curious, of barbers, hairdressers, African Americans, race relations, and social justice or horses, depending if your Martin is de Porres or of Tours) because there’s a free L.A. Banks PDF short story all for you.
From this page you can access a link to download a PDF version of Atlantis Rising, a never-before-released L.A. Banks short story that’s part of the Vampire Huntress Legend series, plus a wallpaper for your computer. From the subscription form it looks as if your contact info will be associated with Banks’ subgenre, but if you’re a urban fantasy/vampire/kick ass heroine reader, that’s not a bad thing.
Yes, you’ll be giving your email address to St. Martin’s, but you know, for free reading, I’ll hand out my email address to just about anyone. But then, I have umpteen badrillion email addresses.
