The Blurb Thing: With Nine You Get Vanyr

A big thank you to all the folks who make the publishing business possible: readers. Thank you for coming to the Samhain Café and Live Journal for this event. And most of all, thank you for reading our books.

For our portion of Samhain Publishing’s Reader Appreciation Week (SF/Fantasy Division) Teri and I will be posting a blurb and two excerpts from our upcoming Samhain release, With Nine You Get Vanyr. We’ll also be running a contest based on the excerpts, giving away two downloads of the book (redeemable upon release or as soon as stern editor person permits) and some Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab imps.  But first, the blurb:

 

        Imagine a world without change, frozen in a time of magic and superstition, where the immortal sons of a goddess fight a never-ending war--mostly with themselves.

        Imagine that goddess, complacent in her self-created stasis. Her boys will be boys, after all. They’ll settle down once they meet the right girls.

        Imagine you’re one of the nine Earth women picked for the job. There are just a couple problems. You’re not from around here. You happen to like your computer, cell phones, double-ply toilet paper. You don’t believe in fate.

        Welcome to Domain.

Contest and First Excerpt: With Nine You Get Vanyr

Thanks again to all the folks who read us and our colleagues at Samhain Publishing <www.samhainpublishing.com>. Teri Smith and I hope you’re enjoying the science fiction and fantasy portion of Samhain’s Reader Appreciation Week.


Now it’s our turn to add to the excerpt fun. Teri and I write fantasy with a double shot of comedy and romance. Think Lord of the Rings meets Bridget Jones’s Diary.


Here is the first unedited excerpt from With Nine You Get Vanyr.  Yes, there will be a test--er, contest afterwards. But you have to read all the way to the end of the excerpt to find out how to enter.  Teri and I are evil that way.

We can’t say it too often--thanks again to all the folks who read us and our colleagues at Samhain Publishing. Teri Smith and I hope you’re enjoying the science fiction and fantasy portion of Samhain’s Reader Appreciation Week.

 

Here is the second unedited excerpt from With Nine You Get Vanyr. Just like before you have to read all the way to the end of the excerpt to find out how to enter the contest. I told you we were evil.
