As always, I'm making you give me something first. Don't worry, it won't be as hard as the podcaster payback contest. This is going to be more like the very first contest I ever ran, almost exactly one year ago, only with even cooler prizes, so here it goes. By now I'm hoping most of you have managed to find, beg, borrow, or steal Changeless.
This contest has ended. Details redacted.

Your Writerly Tinctures:
There is so much good stuff in the recent SFWA bulletin
. An excellent article on ebook rights (which may explain why some authors are wary of Orbit's new venture
), another on WorldCon and its future, the fact the Realms of Fantasy is doing a women in fantasy theme
, and that Cory Doctorow wants your keyboard
(and here I always thought he was after my brain meats). These also something on BookScan data (the great and mysterious) and a little article on Young Adult Fantasy and its hotness. If there was ever any reason to join SFWA a magazine like this one is it. Brilliant!
Her Majesty is unexpectedly charmed
, "I really didn't expect to like this book because it was a new genre to me. I couldn't figure out what the big deal was about Steampunk. I loved this book. Reading this book made me feel like the day that I read my first paranormal romance."
SPOILER ALERT! Changeless
blurb gives away ending of Soulless
. Ooh-books is turning fan girl
, and asks me to explain "why octopus?": "It was completely and absolutely worth my time. I plan on buying and reading every novel Gail Carriger writes."
Out September 1, 2010! Even bigger SPOILER ALERT! Really, DON'T READ THE BLURB ON AMAZON
if you haven't read the other books first.
