Contest closed. Thanks so much for participating!
(Pssssst! If you didn’t win and would still like an ARC of THREE GRAVES FULL, Gallery Books is hosting a giveaway of 40 copies on Goodreads thru January 31st. Click here to redirect to Goodreads!)
Win a book, then assign any book for me to read
There are still a few Advance Review Copies of THREE GRAVES FULL left, and so the fun begins.
As you can imagine, I’m quite excited and preoccupied with the goings on here recently. That’s the nicest way to put it. What I am, actually, is a hepped-up hamster on a squeaky wheel of hyper-vigilance. It’s this |—| close to making me hate myself. And I hate hating myself. So in order to get my head out of my own… er… well, book, I’ve decided to stage a contest for readers, and a week’s worth of mental vacation for myself via some intensive reading – to the tune of five books, one each day, Monday thru Friday, January 21st to January 25th.
And I need your help.
Here’s how the contest will work:
– leave a comment – a nice or at least neutral one please, thankyouverymuch – here & make sure I’ll be able to find you again!
– I’ll put all the names into a randomizer and let it select five responders, each to win an ARC of THREE GRAVES FULL (these are books with shovel cover, in paperback)
– if you’re selected, I’ll sign a copy and send my book right off to you and, in turn, you get to pick one book – any genre, fiction or non – for me to read in my Five-Books-In-Five-Days Readathon (Please no 1,000 page epics, or impossible to find volumes – I’d like to be able to actually do this assignment.)
(Best if you have two or three in mind, just in case it’s something I’ve read before – AND DON’T TELL ME BEFORE THE SELECTION PROCESS IS OVER. I want the surprise.)
The contest is open from now (December 31st) until 11:59pm on Friday, January 11th, Eastern Standard Time. This should be good fun, and thanks for entering!

This is a book I’ve been looking forward to reading for a long time. :) Way to go, you!
This is a really great idea. I like it!
This sounds so fun – please count me in – and I promise, no 1,000 word suggestions. Pinky Swear!
No impossible to find volumes? *scratches The Necronomicon off the potential reading list.*
Super excited to read this :). I’m in!
Yaay! I’ve been looking forward to reading this. Count me in!
This is a great idea–count me in!
I’d love to read this intriguing novel by such a cool, hip, sweet, brilliant, fun … alright, let’s not get too carried away. I’m willing to pay for the pleasure, so maybe I’m not your boy. But then again, reading a signed, free copy might be a helluva lot better. Win or lose, best to you Perks. Bebop
Hi Jamie, I’ve still got your business card from when you came to that Atlanta conference so many years ago – I’m hoping it becomes really valuable! :D
And dare I ask a question about the book for you to read (I’m making a list, I have several in mind already), since you didn’t say – does it have to be published? It’s not “impossible to find” if I can get it to you! :-)
What a great idea! Count me in. :)
Nice twist on a contest, Jamie. Very nicely done! Please do count me in. :)
What a wonderful (and brave) idea! I just finished the sample and I am hooked! Can’t wait for the release! I love the concept and already I am asking, and trying to answer, questions in my head about who – what – why. You are very talented and I am sure this book will be a great success if the rest is what I suspect it to be!
What a great idea! am excited about reading your new book. It sounds like a book I will be totally intrigued by. I’m really looking forward to it.
Can’t wait to read your debut, Ms. Perkypoo :)
Ooh! Count me in! I’m already making my list of books. ;)
I am thrilled to read your book! And I don’t expect ANY preferential treatment AT ALL. None WHATSOEVER. Really. Treat me just like any other entry in the contest. Yes. :P
Hey Jamie! If the randomizer doesn’t choose me, I hope I can still have you sign my copy of your book when I get it. So excited for you!
Go, Jamie, go! I’m so thrilled for you and CAN NOT WAIT to read your book!!! xoxo
Hey, I’ve got to enter. I’m so proud of you, and loud about it I’ve become annoying to a number of folks. They’ll get over it once they read the book. :)
I want one! I’ll get one sooner or later, but sooner will be better! Can’t wait to read this. And love the Five books in five days idea!
This is such a cool contest idea! I am so happy for you and cannot wait to read Three Graves Full!
This is kind of the book equivalent of skydiving, isn’t it, just agreeing to read what the internet offers you? It’s brilliant, and I can’t wait to see what happens. :)
