Win a Free Book!

This, my friends, is your chance to get something for nothing. Well, maybe for a few seconds of your time.

I am giving away a copy of Pill Hill Press' Daily Flash 2012. It's an anthology containing two of my stories, "Send Money" and "iSamurai". There are 366 flash fiction stories of 500 words or fewer, one for each day of the year (Leap Year!). Mine are on November 6th and December 10th.

This book is pretty sweet; it's huge and full of little stories you can read while your laundry is drying, your macaroni is boiling or you're peeing (I keep my copy on the back of the toilet for this purpose).

All you have to do to get in on this is to comment on this post. In your comment, leave me an e-mail address or another way to contact you (for if you win!) and tell me the title of your favorite book ever. I'll let the contest run for a week from today; then I will write down the names of all the commenters on a poster board and let my cat lie down on it. Whichever name has the most shed fur on it when she gets up wins.

Just kidding. I'll do something much more scientific involving hats and little slips of paper.

If I draw your name (or your Net handle, or whatever) I will contact you for a shipping address and send it your way.

And no, you don't get the monkey too, it belongs to my boy.


  1. This should be full of comments by now, I'll put it up on my facebook and see if it helps. :)

  2. Erin Vaughn (, you can also txt me). I have a lot of favorite books, but I'll say Half Blood Prince. It may seem silly, but HP helps me relax. Congrats on the book btw. That's really exciting!

  3. Favorite book ever is...."Skinny Legs and All" by Tom Robbins!! Yyyyyeaaahh!

  4. Hard to pick a favorite... For a long time the book A Moment in Peking by Lin Yutang was my favorite, but anymore i just don't know if I could say I have just *one* at the top of my list. I really love Terry Pratchett's Small Gods and I also really enjoyed The Count of Monte Cristo (but so far nothing else by Dumas). But then I also really loved A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking because I am nerdy like that and he is funny. I refuse to choose only one! :P

  5. My favorite book is "Moreta: Dragonlady of Pern" by Ann McCaffrey. It was my first Pern book and has a special place in my heart.

  6. Cool... my favorite book has to be "The Man Who Never Missed" by Steve Perry. It's followed closely by "The Dragon Waiting by John M. Ford". However there are so many books to choose from and so little time.
