Book View Cafe Wild Rumpus... er, New Bookstore Launch

For lo, these many months, the elves at Book View Café, beloved spouse among them, have been laboring to transform the ebookstore into something elegant and user-friendly, in which browsing means discovered very cool new books as well as old out-of-print favorites. Now it's done and up and we want all our friends/n/relations to celebrate with us.

To that end, we're giving our readers a chance to win the book of their choice free. There's a lot of hoopla about whether such events are helpful, but I hope this one will be fun. The point is to invite you to check things out. Who knows, you might find something you want. (And such a deal - 95% of the price goes to the author.) So here's the skinny:

BVC's spiffy new bookstore.

Take a look around the store anytime up until midnight, June 8, and choose the book you’d like—all the books that are eligible for the giveaway are marked with a gold star. (Omnibus editions and a few other books aren't eligible.) Then come back here and leave a comment with the name and author of the book and why you want it, with the understanding that by entering, you give us permission to use your comment for publicity purposes - so be brilliant. When the promotion ends, I'll select a winner by a mysterious and entirely random process - which means I've written down a date and time, and whoever posts closest to it wins. If you’re the winner, I’ll send you a coupon for the book of your choice.

If you are posting as Anonymous, that's fine. Just identify yourself as a person rather than a spambot. Comments here and on my LiveJournal will be combined, so don't leave yours in more than one place.

In addition, to express my appreciation for your hanging around my place here, I'll select 3 other people (by a method identical to above) to receive either a 50% coupon for either of my ebooks (Jaydium or Northlight) or a mass market paperback edition of Zandru's Forge, A Flame in Hali, The Alton Gift, or Hastur Lord.

Want to enter more than once? Can't do it here - I'll get grouchy. Check out these other BVC author sites where you can enter for additional chances to win:
