A giveaway for Valentine’s Day (my sibling’s book, One Murder More)

February 14, 2017

A giveaway for Valentine’s Day (my sibling’s book, One Murder More)

Regular readers have been following the story (so to speak) of my sibling Kris Calvin’s first novel:

One Murder More (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*)

They’ve seen it from its first release to winning three prestigious Silver Falchion awards. At time of writing, it’s rated 4.6 out of 5 stars with 102 customer reviews on Amazon, and it was featured in Amazon’s first physical bookstore (I’ll be interested to see if it’s in the rumored new Amazon bookstore in Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek, California, which is in my area…no word on when it might open).

Kris wanted to share enthusiasm for a podcast with you, and to do a tie-in giveaway through ILMK:

Kris said:

WriterTypes is a great new podcast for #writers & #readers in which established and debut authors share  their deepest thoughts & funniest secrets! I’d like to see it get the exposure it deserves, and if you listen once you might be hooked on the series (like me)! As a small incentive (& a Valentine’s Day gift!) use link below to Episode #2, and message me** when you discover the topic of my cameo (Patience, although everything that comes before is worth it!), include your  email (for ebook) or snail mail and I’ll send you a copy of One Murder More (signed if hardcover), my Sacramento based mystery-thriller that won the Silver Falchion Best First Novel 2016. If you already have it (thank you!) you can gift the copy, let me know who to send it to on your behalf. 1st ten “right answers” for topic of my cameo receive free signed book! Happy Listening!

** Rather than messaging Kris, if you would like one, comment on this post. I will keep any contact information you give private. The first ten with the “secret word” (I feel like George Fenneman, but that’s a really old reference…and 25 trivia points to you if you know without looking it up) will get one.

Enjoy, and good luck!

Oh, note that to get the e-book, you may need to be in a place that can get a gift from Amazon.com in the USA.

* I am linking to the same thing at the regular Amazon site, and at AmazonSmile. When you shop at AmazonSmile, half a percent of your purchase price on eligible items goes to a non-profit you choose. It will feel just like shopping at Amazon: you’ll be using your same account. The one thing for you that is different is that you pick a non-profit the first time you go (which you can change whenever you want)…and the good feeling you’ll get. :) Shop ’til you help! :)
