Who Doesn’t Love Free Stuff?



***Update. 10/8/12: Linda McDonald, you're the winner! Congratulations! And thank you, everyone, for playing along. Linda, email me at booksbyheather@gmail.com with your address and I'll get your goodies out to you!***

I’m currently at Bouchercon, one of the largest mystery conventions/conferences around, and having lots of fun catching up with old friends and meeting new ones. One of the perks of the conference is that you get a great big tote bag stuffed with all kinds of goodies, including lots and lots of books.

Who doesn't love free stuff? Free good stuff at least. :)

And because it doesn't seem fair that all of us conference-goers are reveling in all this goodness, I thought I’d share the wealth.

So, just leave a comment telling me what you’re currently reading, and I’ll pick a random winner (using random.org) to send a book from the conference, and also this fabulous puzzle designed by the artist who does the covers for my Wishcraft series.

Cute, isn't it?



I’ll pick a winner Monday morning, so make sure you check back to see if you won, because I’ll need a mailing address to ship your prizes!

Good luck!

Heather said...

It's been a few weeks since I read a mystery, as I am working through Anne Karenina by Leo Tolstoy for a group read. It's good and I am enjoying it, but it's really long. Finally passed the halfway point and trying to plow on to the end.

Love the puzzle! Especially perfect for the season!

Just yesterday I finished A WITCH BEFORE DYING. I swear. I'm not just saying that. It was fantastic, of course. I would so love a visit to the Enchanted Village (and the opportunity to make a few wishes while I'm there!). Next in line is BEEF STOLEN-OFF by Liz Lipperman. I'll probably start it this weekend.

Thanks for the chance to win!

I just started reading "Sit, Stay, Slay" by Linda O. Johnston this morning. I finished "Dead Guy's Stuff" by Sharon Fiffer last night.
