Halfway to the Grave with Bonus Materials - and a Digital Reader

Book CoverAccording to Jeaniene Frost, our review of Halfway to the Grave was the first review for her 2007 debut novel. I still remember Hubby picking the book up off the dining room table and asking me what it was – the cover is still very striking, and I believe the same model has been used for the series.

This week, starting today, actually, Halfway to the Grave is on sale for $1.99 as an ebook, along with bonus materials like deleted scenes and excerpts of the new book. There’s never-before-published scenes, the first four chapters of One Foot in the Grave, and two additional excerpts as well. Seriously. Bonus Materials, this ebook has them.

The sale price is valid today until 25 October, so you’ve got plenty of opportunity to buy, gift, and nag folks if you really liked this book (I did). You can get the sale price at Amazon Kindle, Kobo, and BN.com.

So, to celebrate the sale, Jeaniene wants to give away a digital reader here, where her first review was posted. So we’re going back to 2007!

Just kidding. Up for winning is one digital book reading device, either a Kindle, a nook or a Sony – winner’s choice. This contest is open to anyone worldwide where permitted, but it is the winner’s responsibility to make sure the device selected will work in their location.

You could win:

Book Cover
A Kindle 3G with Special Offers

Again – winner’s choice. Woo hoo!

    Chapstick. My sister knows that if I’m in a coma or halfway to the grave, she is to show up every day and make sure my lips are covered. I don’t want to be crazed because of chapped lips even if I’m halfway dead.

    My eReader! Unlike Cat, once I’m halfway to the grave I will not be living an action-packed existence. I’ll finally have time to read all those books I downloaded! :o)

    Kristine says:

    A never-ending supply of good books. Or, just a pillow, radio and warm blanket.

    Hmmm.  I’m a bit weary of another paranormal series right now, but that price and the 2007 review tempt me mightily.

    As to grave accessories, need you even ask?  A well-stocked e-reader, preferably backlit, with a VERY long charging cord. 

    (I actually prefer my print books, but I’d need a whole cemetery to stash sufficient reading material)

    My bonus material would have to be chocolate and lots of it. I’m currently trying to give it up but if I’m halfway to the grave already what’s the point? I may as well eat to my heart’s content!

    Brandie says:

    Tequila, an iPad, and an endless supply of Mentos. I’m all set!

    Katie says:

    Hmmm… Bonus materials. Hard choice, but I would have to go with the iPhone. The things has hbo AND all my music on it! (not to mention access to the digital library of ebooks and audiobooks). What else would a girl need? Well, maybe some chapstick and a nice mascara.

  16. 16
    Ashley says:

    A change of underwear, a pair of socks, a swiss army knife and my chapstick!

    Kim says:

    A headband to keep my hair out of my eyes, and my dog so that when I exclaim ‘holy crap!’ in the middle of a book, I can pretend I’m talking to her and not just to myself. Also, she’s a mighty good cuddler.

    Wine. Definitely wine. :)

    I would take steel toed boots for kicking butt, a sharp knife strapped to my thigh, a 9mm,  a good flashlight, a leather duster, and a loaded e-reader.

    Bonus materials:

    Socks for my cold feet
    LOTS of books (hello, Kindle!)
    My laptop with a magically-never-goes-dead battery
    And pepsi.  Half way to the grave or not, I’m not giving up my one-can-per-day pepsi.

    I’d think the only sensible thing to do is to take my personal Watcher with me, so when it hits the fan, I’ll at least know how to handle it! ;)

    Beatrice says:

    My bonus materials would be a good book(Like Halfway to the Grave!), and my knitting needles!

    Whew…okay, I had to run through the house looking for my shirt and shoes. Now I’m ready to enter.

    What to take? Hmmm.
    1. First on the list? My shit-kicker boots (like Ca’ts) because just because you’re dead, doesn’t mean you won’t need to kick some ass.
    2. A variety of snacks—who knows what I’m going to be raised as, so I’ll pack up some blood, body parts. Ya’ know, the usual. 
    3. Bones—dude, can’t leave him behind!

    Thanks for the opportunity. Peeps, if you haven’t read these books you are seriously missing out. Get on it!

    My bonus material would be my smartphone, an unlimited memory card full of my favorite audio books and my dogs to cuddle in to me and protect me from any evil trying to keep me from relaxing!
