First up, from JD Drew: decrepit Victorian homes built of Legos. Prepare to be impressed because CREEPY and AWESOME are here in equal doses.
Next: how awesome is this? Puffin, a division of Penguin, as donated use of Roald Dahl’s digital books , James and the Giant Peach, Fantastic Mr. Fox, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to the Worldreader program. Worldreader makes digital books available to readers in developing worlds, and Amazon, Random House, and now Penguin are part of the program. High fives, y’all. That is amazing.
(Oddly, I couldn’t find digital editions of those books available in the US, but hey, developing nations first? I am ok with that. I trust there will be Dahl ebooks here eventually.)
Speaking of ebooks: Pocket After Dark has a BIG selection of paranormal romances – including the first books in some very popular series – on sale for $3.99. This discount is valid from October 11 – November 1 2011. I do not know about any possible geographic restrictions (I’m sorry – I can’t test that, unfortunately!).
Titles include Kresley Cole’s A Hunger Like No Other [Amazon | Kobo | BN | WORD Brooklyn], Awaken Me Darkly by Gena Showalter [Amazon | Kobo | BN | WORD Brooklyn], and Cherry Adair’s Hush. [Amazon | Kobo | BN | WORD Brooklyn]
And, heads up – there is another opportunity to win EIKAL over at BookTrib.com, which, if you’re a member, has weekly opportunities to win books, including romances. Last week there was a Bertrice Small novel up for grabs, and this week, alongside EIKAL, you could enter to win a copy of Linda Lael Miller’s A Lawman’s Christmas.
Good gravy, cowboys and Christmas? That’s a powerful combo right there.
Total nonsequitur: when folks see Linda Lael Miller’s name, many people think “cowboys” but I think “pet food.” I have a rubber cap for the cans of cat food that I got at a conference YEARS ago that sends me and my pet best wishes from Linda Lael Miller. Cowboys are awesome, and so are happy cats. (I love promo items like that).
So: do you have a favorite Dahl book? And which of that paranormal romance are you thinking of buying? Is $3.99 a good price for you, or do you prefer it lower? (And who is moving into the creepy lego house with me!?)
