Book Giveaway!

Today we're celebrating some of the talent in our very own blogging community by giving away three publications by our authors and regular commenters!

First, Michelle Davidson Argyle's Cinders, an emotional and adventurous tale of Cinderella after the happily ever after.


Second, our Genre Wars Anthology Volume I, containing a mix of great short stories from several different genres. Writers include Frances O'Brien, Anne Gallagher, Loren Eaton, Simon Larter, C. N. Nevets, and others.

Third, Opium Magazine's Opium 9, The Mania Issue, which contains our ambitious collaborative story written by 18 different writers including yours truly, Scott G. F. Bailey, Michelle Davidson Argyle, Natalie Whipple, Kathy Fish, Mary Miller, and Kuzhali Manickavel, among others.

If you'd like to be entered into a random drawing for each of the books, just leave a comment below to let us know. I'm taking this opportunity to tell all of you how wonderful it is for me to be surrounded by so many talented writers with such a passion for writing.

Thank you all for reading our posts and for having this daily conversation with us here at The Literary Lab.

Otherwise, please know how grateful I am to have been able to interact with all of you over the last year and several months. And, of course you can buy any of these books on your own. E-book versions of Cinders and Genre Wars Volume I are also available.

Also, remember about our Notes From Underground contest! Less than two weeks left to take a shot at having your work included in our next anthology.

    I mean, apart from book-burning sociopaths.

  7. One ticket please.

    And I'm not too worried about book-burning sociopaths. It's the e-reader-melting wackos you have to watch out for these days.
