Something For My Five Readers Out There -- And A Giveaway

Blind Eye Books is having a sale.

End of the Year Sale – Backlist Titles $7.00!!

Happy Holidays!

The Bellingham Blind Eye Books warehouse is getting pretty crowded. In order to make room for our 2014 releases we are having an end-of-the-year sale! Select print titles are only $7.00 (plus shipping). That’s right, you can now own print copies of Blind Eye Books backlist titles for less than the cost of an ebook. Stock is limited to what is available in our Bellingham warehouse so get them while they’re hot! Sale ends on December 31, 2013, or when we run out of stock, whichever comes first.

And just to save you the trouble, here’s a list of what’s on sale:

Tangle, Nicole Kimberling, editor
Tangle Girls, Nicole Kimberling, editor
Wicked Gentlemen by Ginn Hale
Strange Fortune by Josh Lanyon
Lord of the White Hell Book One by Ginn Hale
Lord of the White Hell Book Two by Ginn Hale
Turnskin by Nicole Kimberling
Irregulars by Nicole Kimberling, Josh Lanyon, Astrid Amara and Ginn Hale

Why do I care? Because one of my favorite stories, "Under Suspicion", is in the anthology Tangle Girls. Editor Nichole Kimberling was at the 2004 Clarion, and when she made a call for a lesbian themed anthology, I told her I was threatening to send her a military SF story -- and she replied that if I included my armored marines, to bring it on. Challenge accepted on both sides. I'd been considering a story idea for years about how one might ask first a first date on a starship. But it needed conflict. Problem solved.
Under Suspicion: Ensign Lily Branoch can’t keep her mind off of Marine Daniella Cruz-Ortega. But are the other woman’s flirtations real or a ploy to hide her involvement in the disappearance of a dangerous arms shipment?
So, you can order a copy of Tangle Girls or any of the SALE books for just $7+shipping at the Tangle Girls webpage. There's a convenient shipping calculator and a link direct to PayPal.

But Wait -- Didn't You Say Giveaway?


Since a lot of you wouldn't ordinarily cruise for LBGT fiction, despite some of the cool material out there, I decided to help Nikki and two of my five readers. (grin)

Winter Is Coming, especially as it's still officially Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere. As is Christmas. Just sayin'.

UPDATED: 12-17-2013 -- (1) Ah, the virtues of cut-and-paste and auto correct... I've fixed the anthology title. It's Tangle, not Tangled. (2) The winners are announced here (DW). Dr. Phil
