winner, ARC of Jim Butcher’s SKIN GAME

Thanks to everyone for participating in the giveaway for the ARC (advance reading copy) of Jim Butcher’s SKIN GAME. It was fun to see what the trailer got people thinking. I’m debating adding up the Michael vs. Bazooka comments to see which one got the most mentions…

And the winner is… Maniah — congratulations!

As an aside, I discovered that our winner once produced a Harry Dresden pony mod — though she tells me she is currently closed to commissions. But she said it was okay to post a picture, so here it is. (click here if you want to see more)

Jim Butcher’s SKIN GAME, the latest novel in the Dresden Files series, releases on May 27th. In anticipation, this authorized trailer debuted last week and now I’m giving away an advance reading copy (ARC).

To enter: Post a comment on this entry telling me what you find most intriguing in this trailer.

Only one entry per person. Domestic (US) and international entries accepted. This is for an ARC, not the hardcover edition. Contest starts now and runs until Friday, May 16th, 5pm Eastern (unless Harry doesn’t save the world this time). Winner will be randomly chosen.

In honor of the elemental we’re currently calling Pax, it seems appropriate to give away a copy of an ARC (advance reading copy) of Anne Bishop’s forthcoming novel, MURDER OF CROWS, the 2nd book in the Others series, along with a signed book plate from the author and a bookmark featuring the cover art. Bonus: If you haven’t read the series, a mass market paperback of book 1: WRITTEN IN RED will be included (and if you have read it, give it to a friend and get them hooked!).
