    Giveaway! Dogs and Their People (US Only)

    Hello there! It’s fall y’all! The light has changed, the days are shorter, and the days feel crispy and warm at the same time. You know what else happened this month? The Puppy turned 3! I can’t believe he’s been part of our family for 3 years now, and none of us remembers a time when he was not there making us play go-and-fetch 24/7. To celebrate The Puppy’s birthday I am giving away ONE physical copy of Dogs and Their People by Barkpost and published by Penguin Random House in the US on 18th October.

    Giveaway: Unbecoming by Rebecca Scherm (US and Canda ONLY)

    The lovely and generous Annie Harries from Penguin USA has given me ONE copy of Rebecca Scherm’s Unbecoming to give away. As you probably remember, I loved this book – read my review here – but so did some other writers we admire: “From the first page, you know Rebecca Scherm is the real thing. UNBECOMING is an assured exploration of the intricate, intense, risky processes that go into creating identity—and into dismantling it.” —Tana French “Rebecca Scherm’s extraordinarily confident voice and style, this novel’s depth of detail—great characters and a terrifically engaging plot—are a sheer delight to read. There is something very fresh and captivating about this book and…

    Want to solve a crime?

    I was approached yesterday by Hattie from ThinkJam to promote a new crime fiction novel called Cop Town by Karin Slaughter. I was immediately interested when I reached two words of the press release: Atlanta and 1970’s. So, I very gladly said I would love a review copy. If you are interested in getting another copy or just feel like playing cop, DeadGood is running a competition from today to Friday where they will tweet a case and readers have to tell if it’s fact or fiction. There will be two sets of signed copies of Karin’s full backlist, as well as 30 signed proof copies of Cop Town to…
