Tor is Giving Away 5 Copies of The Coldest War

April 30, 2012 at 10:07 am

This just in: over at Goodreads, the good people at Tor are giving away 5 copies of my forthcoming novel, The Coldest War. The offer runs from today, April 30, through June 8.

So that's two Milkweed-related giveaways currently underway at Goodreads—I'm also giving away 3 copies of the new-as-of-last-week mass market paperback of Bitter Seeds (details here).  That giveaway runs until May 13.

And I think that's quite enough self promotion for one day.  Don't you?  This is the part of writing that I enjoy the very least.

On an entirely different note, here's one of the very few jokes I can actually remember.

Q:  What's a test tube baby's worst nightmare?

A:  A dingo with a straw.

I just saw that the Bitter Seeds MMP is on the Barnes & Noble Bookseller’s Picks for May over at!

As a great man once said: great googly-moogly! Golly. I would not have known about that if you hadn't told me, Steve. Thank you very much! And gosh, what a nice surprise first thing in the morning. How cool. My editor forwarded a very nice Kirkus review of The Coldest War yesterday. I'm quite happy about that.

I can't take part in the COLDEST WAR giveaway because I live in Germany and not in the States. That makes me neither sad nor angry because I will buy a copy anyway. I was happy when I received my mmbp copy of BIITER SEEDS before my holiday from 29th April to 13th May 2012. I read BITTER SEEDS during these days and I was really impressed. That has been one of the best books I read so far in 2012. Now I work on the review which I will post within the next days on my blog Edi's Book Lighthouse and on GOODREADS. I do not buy hardcover due to limited space at hom. Therefore I ordered a digital copy of the COLDEST WAR in advance. Fingers crossed that the publishing of COLDEST WAR and NECESSARY EVIL will happen as you expect.

I'm sorry the giveaway didn't extend outside the U.S. Thanks for being so understanding! I'm glad the mmpb of Bitter Seeds got to you in time for your vacation -- and that you enjoyed it. Thank you very much for the kind and encouraging words -- I really appreciate the feedback. Here's hoping you enjoy the sequel, too!
