Mailbox Monday and Giveaway Winner



Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday! MM was created by Marcia at A girl and her books (fka The Printed Page), who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring meme (details here).

Life in the Thumb is hosting in August.  Please visit Staci's fun and cheerful blog for some great reading inspiration.

I got some great books last week. But first I have a GIVEAWAY WINNER to announce:

Despite a valiant effort by Teddy Rose at So Many Precious Books, So Little Time, random.org generated #1 as the random choice, making Debbie at ExUrbanis (also featured on Kittling Books' terrific Scene of the Blog last week) the winner of From This Wicked Patch of Dust by Sergio Troncoso.  



MY BOOKS

Carry Yourself Back to Me by Deborah Reed.  I've been waiting for this one!



The Declaration of Independents: How Libertarian Politics Can Fix What's Wrong With America by Nick Gillespie and Matt Welch, the guys who run Reason Magazine and Reason TV.  I ordered this after meeting the authors when they were in Portland for a reading at Powell's. I had to miss the reading, but enjoyed chatting with them at a dinner put together by my Cascade Policy Institute buddies. Let's see what they have to say.




A Small Fortune by Audrey Braun. Audry Braun is the pen name of Deborah Reed, above.  



I read and reviewed A Small Fortune when Deborah self-published the book last year.  It has since been picked up, along with her literary novel Carry Yourself Back to Me, by AmazonEncore.  The new edition has a Rose City Reader blurb on the back (I'm famous!), so Deborah was nice enough to send me a copy.  See my author interview, here.

Like I said, "the book is absolutely unputdownable."

I read A Small ortune through Amazon Vine and enjoyed the chase scenes through the jungle. A nice summer/beach read.

Debbie: Happy reading!

Harvee: Yes, the chase scenes stick with me too. I am looking forward to the literary novel. I know she worked on it for a long time. Small Fortune was fun, but I think this one will be a better book.
