In a blog post elsewhere in the blog-o-sphere, Teddy Pig lamented that epublishers don’t publish a top ten bestseller list for the year. I accepted his “challenge” and at the beginning of 2009, Samhain will be publishing their 2008 bestseller list. But I wanted to make it a fun event, and do some other reader-driven lists, so I put together a quick (only five questions) survey for Samhain customers to choose their favorite books and covers. Please take a moment to fill it out and help us compile some “best of” lists to publish with our bestseller list of 2008.
So head on over and participate (even if it's to vote for someone who's not me! And no, I'm not saying who I voted for either.)
Second, it seems we have a winner for the Name That Book contest:
Steel Beauty was chosen as the new name of the book! Please email or post your choice of prize! The choices were:
1. A gift certificate to Books On Board (which can be given as soon as the contest ends - no delayed gratification!);
2. An ARC of Very Much Alive, Book 1 of True Destiny, before it releases in February (the ARC would be given in February, and will be available only in e-book format);
3. A free copy of Cat of a Different Color or Sweet Dreams or The Wallflower (available only in e-book format; again, no delayed gratification!)
4. A copy, signed by me, of Hunting Love (available only in print; would require a physical mailing address and would not be given until March, so definite delayed gratification!)
Crystal will also be in my dedication of Steel Beauty!
And just so you know, I totally stole some of those titles for other novels, so keep an eye out for them in the future. ;D
