This week the Publishing Fairy has temporarily transferred his powers to me. Why? Let's just say he owed me. And as tempted as I am to transform some jackasses into the four-legged variety, my powers can only be used for good. Like granting three wishes.
No, I'm not going to stop writing, go to hell, or drop dead. Quit wishing that, will you?
Wish #1: There is a book out there that you want to read. One that you haven't gotten around to ordering, or that's not in the budget this month, or that you've put off because you had to choose between it and something else and something else won. You just don't have it yet, and you'd like to.
Here's your chance to get it for free. In comments to this post*, list the title and author of that book you wish for (it can be any book at all, just assure that it's in print and the cover price is less than $50.00 U.S.) by midnight EST on Friday, June 9, 2006. I'll draw one name from everyone who participates, buy the book, and ship it to you, no charge. I'll also throw in a signed copy of my novel Dark Need, so don't wish for that. Wish open to everyone on the planet, even if you've had wishes fulfilled here at PBW before.
Also, stayed tuned for opportunities to make Wish #2 and #3, which will be for other cool things.
[*Note: Blogger has gone bonkers so often this week I'm going to post this a little early. Also, I haven't been able to get in to respond to comments a few times this week, so this could cause a problem, too. If you try to post a comment and find you can't, e-mail your bookwish to me at LynnViehl@aol.com; same time cut-off as above.]
