Happy Freebie Friday!

UPDATE: The winner of MOUTAIN MIDWIDE is Linda Henderson. Congrats! Please email your physical addy to contests(AT)

Thank goodness the weekend is finally here! It was really tough getting back into the grove after Snowpocalypse. One would think a break from driving into work would leave you refreshed. However, I can attest it makes you hit your snooze button 10 more times than usual and forces you to play incredibly loud music to keep yourself awake on the road. So, onto the news and the giveaway. Happy Friday! I hope everyone has great plans!

Report from Cyberspace:
CLIENT NEWS: Cassie Miles's MOUNTAIN MIDWIFE hit the USA Today list at the #67 spot. WTG Cassie! (Don't forget to check out the freebie below, we're giving away a copy!)
The Mystery Writers of America revealed nominees for the Edgar Awards. I'm definitely coveting several of these titles, including the much talked about CROOKED LETTER, CROOKED LETTER by Tom Franklin. I see a bookstore trip inserting its way into my weekend plans... - Mystery Writers of America

Is the emaciated book review arena actually packing on a few pounds? Galley Cat reports that the Washington Post will expand its book review coverage - Galley Cat

Who cares about that stinkin' iPad with all is fancy bells and whistles? Not Amazon. A Barclays analyst reports the online retail giant will sell 12 million Kindles this year - eBookNewser

Would you like one space or two with that paragraph? I have often bemoaned the email with two spaces between each sentence. Why? Why!!!?? Apparently Slate writer Farhad Manjoo agrees. Good man - Slate via Nathan Bransford
This week, we're giving away a copy of MOUNTAIN MIDWIFE by Cassie Miles. Leave a comment to enter. The winner will be announced on Monday morning.

The 411 on MOUNTAIN MIDWIFE: Kidnapped, blindfolded and driven to a desolate Rocky Mountain lodge ~ for midwife Rachel Devon it's the most terrifying birth she has ever attended to. But now that the baby's mother is dead, it's up to Rachel to get the child to safety. Much to Rachel's surprise, one of the kidnappers helps her escape. Cole McClure claims to be an undercover FBI agent, though Rachel doesn't trust him for a minute. He's got that sexy bad-boy edge, the type Rachel's been burned by way too often. But Cole comes through and with a blizzard bearing down on them, with killers and cops hot on their trail, they team up to find this innocent baby a home. And try to resist temptation when they're "forced" to share a bed through the cold winter nights….

We didn't have any snow in Portland. Well, we had one 2 hour late start. Yeah, I speak in school hours. That comes with being a dad.

Hit the list at #67? Way to go Cassie. I couldn't open the link to the awards, but good luck.

When I first started writing, the "one space or two" thing really confused me.

Great blog. Thank you.
