Drum roll, please….
The winners of last Friday’s Vigilante Dead contest have been notified. They are Sherry F., Jeanette H., and Donna. Thanks for playing 🙂 And BIG thanks to all of you who helped make the book launch such a resounding success by sharing, liking, Tweeting, downloading, telling your friends and family, and everything else!
You guys rock.
I’m now going to hunker down in my writing lair and work on the next Leine Basso thriller. I hope everyone has a fantastic Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, Solstice, Festivus, New Years, and/or whatever you believe.
There’s room for all of us, you know.
I’m going to leave you with a scene of one of my favorite places: The Ponte Vecchio in Florence, Italy.

Hey there! I mentioned I’d be back with some giveaways today, so here’s 3 🙂 (Contests end Monday, December 12)
Win a signed paperback copy of Vigilante Dead from Goodreads. (For some reason the widget isn’t resolving correctly on the blog, so you’re going to have to click on the link to go to the book’s page on Goodreads. You can enter the contest there. Goodreads will notify the winner.)
I’m also giving away the T-shirt pictured (size large) with the book cover on the back (see pics below). Just leave a comment with your email address and I’ll choose a random reader to win! (Must be in US or Canada to receive the book and T-shirt.)

Vigilante Dead’s fabulous book cover on the back
So I get to include everybody with an internet connection, regardless of whether you live in the US or elsewhere, I’m also giving away winner’s choice of one of my back list titles in eBook or audio book format. (All of my books are available in audio except Vigilante Dead and A Killing Truth. Cargo is currently in production and should be available in audio by the end of the month, so you can choose that, if you’d like.) I’ll announce the winners (with the exception of the Goodreads giveaway) on Tuesday, December 13.
Good luck, everybody!
Holy schmoley! Excitemente! and all that! This morning I woke up to not 1, not 2, but 3 awesomely fabulous reviews for Cargo 🙂 Now, if that isn’t a GREAT way to start a new year I don’t know what is. If you’re interested, the links are below. (Feel like leaving a comment? You’ll be entered to win a $10 GC from either the ‘zon or B&N. See? I share 😀 )
Hope. Dreams. Life… Love

I was going to post a photograph of some fireworks or something new-year-ish but this little guy (re: slender mongoose) was featured on the front page of WikiMedia and he pretty much nails how I’m feeling right now…
**Note: I just updated this post to mention Cargo instead of The Body Market. Apparently I didn’t have enough coffee this morning 😛
(Okay, okay, I know it’s not here quite yet, but still….)
