Hi all! I have exciting news. The nice folks over at the Hatchett Book Group sent me a copy of the new Mystery Writers of America's THE PROSECUTION RESTS. This is a collection of short stories. Previously they had THE BLUE RELIGION (see my review here) and also DEATH DO US PART. Well, THE PROSECUTION RESTS is the new collection and it comes out this month from Little Brown & Co. I've started reading it, and so far I'm loving this collection.
Linda Fairstein edited the collection and she contributed a story. In addition there are shorts from James Grippando, Edward D. Hoch, Paul Levine, Michele Martinez, Barbara Parker, S. J. Rozan, Angela Zeman, one of my Twitter buddies, Joseph Wallace, and 14 other authors.
S. J. Rozan serves up a plot twist like nothing I've seen before. Awesome. And Joseph Wallace juggles a pretty dark plot intriguingly well. But, I'll review the collection as a whole when I'm finished. What I do have to share with you is the fact that those nice folks over at Hatchett want to give one of my readers a copy of this fine collection, too! That's very cool.
So, here's all you have to do to be entered into the drawing. First, send me an e-mail with your name and snail mail - so we know where to send the book if you win. If that link doesn't work simply use forbyone (at) yahoo (dot) com. In the subject line write "Hatchett MWA." That will get you an entry. You can earn two additional entries if you post a Tweet (be sure to include @jenforbus in your tweet so I can give you credit) on Twitter telling folks about the contest. Don't Twitter? Don't worry. You can earn your two extra entries if you send an e-mail to at least five friends telling them about the contest. Make sure you cc: me on the e-mail, so I can give you credit.
I'll take entries through the end of the month. Don't delay! Get your entries in this great contest!
Happy Reading and Good Luck!
