Happy Freebie Friday!

Whoops, running a little (read: lot) late with the winner of HEXBOUND by Chloe Neill. The winner is -- Jamie, I'm a guy, btw. Love the name, LOL. Please email your physical addy to contests(AT)

This week we've been prepping for Speed Date 2, our big talent search contest with Deidre Knight and Pamela Harty that commences on Monday. If you haven't checked it out, just take a peek at the post below this one for all the rules and such. Hope to see many of you competing for a spot!

Now for our super official and serious Report from Cyberspace...

CLIENT NEWS: N.K. Jemisin's THE HUNDRED THOUSAND KINGDOMS was nominated for a Nebula Award in the novel category.

It's National Grammar Day! (Please, do me a favor and don't look for mistakes in this post. I'm sure there are many...) Head on over to the National Grammar Day website for fun facts and quizzes - National Grammar Day 

Librarians (and many readers) are in an uproar over HarperCollins recent move to restrict ebook licenses to a limit of 26 checkouts, after which the library would have to purchase another ebook license. Apparently 26 is the magic number when print books fall apart. Who knew?  - GalleyCat

Random House titles are finally available via Apple's iBookstore. The publisher was the last holdout of the "Big Six" to accept the agency pricing model for ebooks necessary to have their releases sold through Apple - Huffington Post

Former Curtis Brown agent Nathan Bransford posted some excellent tips earlier this week on how authors can make the most of their Facebook account - Nathan Bransford Blog

Leave a comment to win a copy of HEXBOUND by Chloe Neill. The winner will be annouced on Monday.

The 411 on HEXBOUND: Lily Parker is new to St. Sophia’s School for Girls, but she’s already learned that magic can be your best friend…or your worst enemy.

They say absolute power corrupts absolutely. Turns out, even a little magic can turn you to the dark side. That’s why Lily has to learn how to control her newly discovered paranormal abilities, on top of avoiding the snobs who think they run her school, nursing a crush on a cute sophomore with a big, werewolf-y secret, and fighting the good fight with her best friend Scout as they take on Chicago’s nastiest nightlife—including the tainted magic users known as Reapers.

Then Lily’s invited to a private meeting with Sebastian. He’s hot, powerful, and offering to help her harness the magic flowing in her veins in a way no one else can. He’s also a Reaper. Lily can’t hide her suspicions. But she’ll soon find out that the line between good and evil isn’t always clear…
