Congrats to Starla for winning last week’s book!
Today’s book is Ellens Tale – First of the Sefuty Chronicles by Alberta Ross.
In a world devastated by climate change,Ellen, sheltered child of the City falls in love against all odds with Bix, a geneticaly manipulated soldier. Unable to face a life apart they have to find a way together in an uncertain world. Two researchers, using archival material, explore the events leading to this love affair and its consequences.
This also bills itself as “a historical romance set in the future”. While that in and of itself doesn’t interest me, I do love that there’s some genre mashing going on here. What sort of genre mash-ups have you read that just don’t work?
I plan on giving away a book a week this year, but none of them will be my own. Why? Well, I believe in helping introduce people to new authors and nothing does that like FREE! The contests will be as simple as leaving a comment on the blog, or showing me that you’ve left a review on Amazon or Smashwords of books you’ve picked up in the past. I’ll try and change things up to keep them interesting, but by and large you won’t have to work hard.
If you’re an author and you’d like to pitch your hat into the ring, let me know. I’m not asking you to give me anything for free. I plan on buying your e-book from Amazon/Smashwords as a gift for the winner. So in addition to you getting your name out there, you’ll also get a sale for the contest. The most I can budget per week is $2.99, so if you have a book in the $.99-$2.99 price range let me know. I reserve the right to turn you down, but I will try and do so gently. I’d like to have a variety of genres represented.
If you have a free book and would like me to just get the word out I can do that, but you won’t be part of my contest. If your book is more expensive and you would like to donate a copy, that works too.
Shoot me an e-mail, a DM, or leave me a comment to enter your book.
