Anyone who buys the book and posts a review anywhere and includes the link to the review as a comment to any of those posts will be entered five times. All entries will be numbered and the winning numbers will be chosen by random number generator. Only one prize per entrant. First winner gets first choice of prize.


  • Free copy of EEL’S REVERENCE or FORCE OF HABIT, my upcoming sf/farce. (2 separate prizes-1 of each)
  • Free softback copy of SWORD AND SORCERESS XXIII, with my story “Undivided” in it.
  • Free softback copy of DYING IN A WINTER WONDERLAND, with my story “Team Player” in it.
  • Your name in the story I’m going to write to promote FORCE OF HABIT.

So that’s my contest. See you tomorrow!

Oh–by the way–it cosses $2.99.

WRITING PROMPT: What prize would induce your main character to enter a contest? What kind of contest?



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
