A Quick Few Mentions

I just wanted to pass along a few things you might want to take advantage of this week.

Prologue Books, an imprint of F+W Media is offering DON'T CRY FOR ME by William Campbell Gault, the 1952 Edgar Award winner for Best First novel, free on Kindle and Nook.

Booklist online is celebrating May is Mystery Month. If you're following @ALA_Booklist or @Booklist_Keir on Twitter, you can see all the updates.

I've been doing a better job of keeping the xuni Facebook page updated with what the xuni authors are doing, so if you aren't already following, you may want to do so. Regardless of your reading preferences, xuni probably has authors you'd be interested in.

Criminal Element has a contest going on right now to win a copy of Long Island Noir. They also have Reed Farrel Coleman's short story "Mastermind" from the anthology that you can read. The contest ends May 7th, so you need to get your entry in pretty quickly.

New teasers are coming out for Longmire. This one is a little graphic, so if that concerns you, be forewarned:

Also excited for the new book, AS THE CROW FLIES, out on the 15th. Look for a review soon. Also have to mention that Tuesday was the release of Robert B. Parker's Lullaby (written by Ace Atkins). I really enjoyed it and will be sharing that review with you soon as well.

 Last, I love what Naomi did over at The Drowning Machine with "Creative Casting." What do you think? Did the voters nail the casting?

I'm working on a new feature for the blog, so stay tuned for info on that. Hope you're having a great week filled with great books! Happy Reading.

Thanks for the tip!

I hope those Longmire trailers aren't representative of the series. They aren't even close to the tone of the books. Thanks for posting.

I'm loving the Longmire trailers. I hadn't seen this one before.

Thanks for the kind words!
