Lots of links, and a One Lovely Blog Award

I've posted the first chapter of Jack of All Trades as a pdf file, which you can read here. Let me know if it doesn't work or you can't read it or something. The book is now also available for order through Amazon and B&N! That's pretty cool, although I do get a higher royalty from orders directly from my publisher, and of course you can order the book (and read most of the first chapter online, with illustrations) here.

Starting tomorrow I'll be running a contest throughout the week. Winner will receive a signed copy of Jack of All Trades and some other loot, although I don't know what loot yet since I haven't yet bought any. That's what Sunday afternoons are for.

Jameson T. Caine has awarded me the One Lovely Blog Award, which is sweet of him. It must be all the pink on his website. :) Despite the pink--or maybe because of it--Jameson writes creepy and fascinating horror stories, many of which you can read online, just check the links on the sidebar of his blog.

Now it's time to pass the award along to some worthy blogger. I choose Samantha Sterner, another horror writer whose blog is always interesting, entertaining, and often just plain funny.

The rules for the award:

1. Accept the award, and don't forget to post a link back to the awarding person.

2. Pass the award on.

3. Notify the award winner(s).

Congratulations, KC...and it was great of you to keep the award locked in the bloody embrace of the horror people!

Cate--I'm going to make bookmarks, but they may not turn out very well.

Alan--I am fascinated with and a little bit scared of you horror folks. :)

Ooooooh! A contest!

Huzzah for the Lovely Award! Keep it steaming on down the line.

Contests are fun!

K.C. Shaw said...

Jameson--My first contest!

Aaron--I suspect this contest will be sort of run-of-the-mill. But the prize will be good.

Congrats on getting the teacup, and looking forward to receiving my copy of Jack of all Trades. It must be on the same slow boat as my copy of Cate's book.

K.C. Shaw said...

I hope you get it soon, and Cate's excellent chapbook too.

Jeremy Kelly said...
