FREEDOM MAZE ARC giveaway

It's 34 days to pub day for my new teen historical novel, The Freedom Maze.  Which sounds like a long time until I start thinking about all the things I have to do between now and then.  Like tell you about my ARC giveaway contest.

Big Mouth House (a very big big deal but a very small establishment) only printed a very few ARCs.  How few?  Only enough for major print reviewers, that's how few.  I, however, am the Author.  I got four.  I gave one to Jane Yolen, who has been hearing about this book and being encouraging and supportive since 1988.   One I'm keeping because I've already marked it up for reading in 10, 15, and 30 minute chunks.

Which leaves me two Advance Reading Copies to give away.

Here's how the contest works.

Post this link to the Small Beer Press page for The Freedom Maze on the social media of your choice--your blog, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, whatever. 

Then put the link to wherever you posted in the comments below by midnight (your time) October 18.

On October 19, I will randomly select two winners from the comments below and send them the ARCs, along with a Small Token of my Appreciation.

Posting a link will not only put you in the running for an advance peek at The Freedom Maze, but is a great way to help the cause of independent publishing. Which, in this increasingly conservative publishing climate, is very important for the future of all writers of odd, provocative, non-dominant-culture books.  Let's show the Big Boys how many of us there are out there.

edited to fix dates.  Sheesh.  And we BOTH proofread it, too.

What did you intend to write instead of October 10 and October 11? (Considering it's October 12 when you publish this.)

Oops. I fixed it above. Thanks so much for catching that.

Oh, yes please! The cover reminds me of the older Nancy Drew covers, and is super, super cute. I posted your link on G+ and Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/kashmiristec; https://plus.google.com/115977593694363578666/posts).

The title is also oddly fitting: Eve and I are finishing an academic paper on conceptual stuff and mazes, lanyrinths and the like.

I posted :) But I don't want to be entered into the ARC giveaway; I won't have spoons to read anything before WFC anyway, so they shouldn't be wasted on me.

Bless you, sweetie. Wish I could send you more spoons for your drawer, to be used for your own work.

Of course. One neglects one's beeping dinner at one's peril.

Thank you.

Wow. I just read the blurb and I'm loving it already. Of course, I do have that thing for indie releases :D
