It’s October! Time for a Happy Birthday Giveaway!!!
Yep, I’m turning another year older this month, which totally calls for a giveaway (‘tis better to give than receive, am I right?). I’ve teamed up with my buddy Lynn Cahoon, who also happens to be an October baby. We’re putting together a big ol’ fall-themed birthday basket featuring goodies like three books in three different series of mine (Walk Into Silence, the first Jo Larsen Mystery; Say Yes to the Death, the sixth Debutante Dropout Mystery; and Come Helen High Water, the fourth River Road Mystery), as well as the first books in Lynn’s three mystery series (Who Moved My Goat Cheese? A Farm-to-Fork Mystery; Guidebook to Murder, A Tourist Trap Mystery; and A Story to Kill, a Cat Latimer Mystery). Since you’ll need to brew a warm drink while you settle in with your books, we’ve also got some Pumpkin Spice coffee, and a Pumpkin Spice chocolate bar to go with it. In case you’re still hungry after that, there’s some ready-to-make Cheesy Potato Bacon soup, plus a Halloween dishtowel, so you can clean up after your coffee-brewing and soup-making. Sound good? Here’s how to enter:
*Email me at McBrideMysteries@aol.com and say, “Happy Birthday, Susan and Lynn!” If you’d like extra entries, visit my web site at SusanMcBride.com and Lynn’s at LynnCahoon.com, find the links at the bottom of our home pages to BookBub, Facebook, and Twitter. Like us on social media and let me know that you did. You will get extra entries for every follow (that could mean a total of six!).
The Happy Birthday Giveaway ends at the stroke of midnight Central Time on October 31, 2018. A winner will be randomly drawn from all entries and notified the first week of November. Good luck!!!
Another Random Drawing Just in Case One Isn’t Enough! I’m still looking for peeps to review Walk A Crooked Line on Amazon, in particular (because Goodreads has WAY more than my Amazon page). If you’ve read it and, hopefully, liked it, please go post your thoughts. Once you do, shoot me a note at Susan@SusanMcBride.com, and you’ll be entered to win a $25 Amazon gift card. You’ll also win my gratitude! Reviews are the birthday gift every author loves (and you don’t even have to wrap ‘em!). Deadline is December 1, so you’ll have extra $$$ for the holidays!
A shout-out for a Shout Out: If you’re in St. Louis, I’ll be out & about again this weekend, Saturday, October 13, at 2 p.m., to keynote the Authors Shout Out event at the Schlafly Library branch. For info, see my Events page.
That’s about it for now! If you’d like more updates on my books and events, plus random musings on the writing life, please visit my Susan McBride Books page on Facebook and Like it. You can also follow me on Book Bub to receive alerts on any promos relating to my titles, plus alerts for new releases!
Happy October, Happy Halloween, Happy Birthday to me (and Lynn!), and Happy Reading!
