Plague of Memory, StarDoc book seven, made #10 on the Locus SF bestseller list. To my knowledge, my publisher didn't do anything to promote the book (and other than a couple of copies I gave away, neither did I.) All this means is that my readers get 100% of the credit for putting it there. Thank you. Patricia Briggs's second Mercy Thompson novel, Blood Bound (which I did promote) came in at #4, and I know a lot of you helped spread the word, so thank you again.
I'm still waiting to hear from my SF editor on the revised proposals for StarDoc books eight and nine, Drednoc and Crystal Healer. I'll pass along whatever news I receive as soon as it comes in.
Links from around the publishing blogosphere:
Romance author Ann Christopher is giving away three ARCs she found while cleaning her office (see, I'm not the only one who does that); details can be found over at her April contest page.
Our tireless blog pal Alison Kent is always finding giveaways and contests as well as holding her own for both readers and writers.
Vampire Genre's April News page has a long list of reader giveaways and contests (scroll down), including chances to win a signed set of seven of Michelle Rowen's novels and a $100 gift card from Jenna Black.
I'm going to copycat Ann Christopher's idea and give away two ARCs I found when I was cleaning out some gratis copy boxes yesterday: Into the Fire by Jessica Hall and Dark Need by Lynn Viehl. In comments to this post, list which one you'd prefer to win (or, if you have no preference, just throw your name in the hat and you'll be entered into both drawings) by midnight EST on Thursday, April 5, 2007. I'll draw two names at random and send the winners the ARCs, signed, along with a surprise. Giveaway open to everyone on the planet, even if you've won something here at PBW in the past.
