Ebook Giveaway – Compensating Controls & And Then She Was Gone

Congrats to Nuchtchas for winning Legends and The Sekhmet Bed! I’m changing up the rules a little so read carefully. If you’ve already won, please feel free to comment, but I really want future e-books to go to folks that haven’t won anything. Also, though I’m giving two books away this week, I’ll do a separate drawing for each. You might still win both, but this way there’s a chance for two people to win.

The books this week are by good friends of mine. This is one week where I know precisely what you’re getting into and I’m endorsing both of them.

The first is Compensating Controls by James Keeling. I reviewed the podcast here.

Nicolas Edgewood, a mild mannered computer guy is catapaulted into a world of danger and intrigue. Facing danger from every quarter, can he find a way to save the girl, stop the bad guys, and hopefully end up above ground?

The second is And Then She Was Gone by Dan Sawyer. I reviewed the ebook a while back and am a big fan of the Lantham books.

Disgraced former cop Clarke Lantham doesn’t mind making his living as a PI. He doesn’t mind the long hours, living in his office, or even dealing with bill collectors, because it keeps him in the city–as close to heaven as he’s ever likely to get.

Fortunately, the world needs private detectives. Unfortunately for Lantham, on this particular Saturday morning, “the world” consists of a fretful mother with a missing daughter, and the place he has to go look for her has a name every bit as ominous as hell: Suburbia.

With only a teenager’s blog and diaries to go on, and time running out, Lantham chases puzzle pieces from the posh shadow of Mount Diablo to the kink clubs of San Francisco to the genetic engineering labs of Stanford. Tailed by mercenaries, framed for murder, and forced into hiding, he somehow must keep his head in the face of a world where the normal rules of reality don’t seem to apply–all for the sake of a nineteen-year-old girl whose face he sees every time he closes his eyes.

So how do you get these? Merely leave a comment below and your name will be dropped into the virtual hat. There will be two drawings, one for each.

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.

  1. I listened to Compensating Controls and really enjoyed it. Keep writing great fiction!!!

  2. I read your review of Compensating Controls and thought it was a fair assessment, but James’s voice acting was excellent. I have read some of JD’s works, but not “And Then She Was Gone”. I will look for your work “The Behemoth” because I really enjoy Steampunk!
    Have a great day and keep up the excellent writing!

    1. I think you’ll enjoy ATSWG, whether you win it or buy it. The series is my favorite work of Dan’s after Down From Ten. Hope you enjoy Behemoth! I wrote it wanting to display steampunk that doesn’t happen in jolly old England.

  3. I won a copy of Between the Land and The Sea. I’m just commenting in case there isn’t enough people, I’d love to win one of these two, they both look fantastic…. What you’re doing here is great! (heard about you from the Dead robots’ society podcast)
