A while back, I held a giveaway on the blog, and I learned a few things. The main thing I learned? Nobody enters giveaways. That makes entering authors’ giveaways a *really* effective way to get a lot of free books!
Which leads me to this wonderful copy of Ironskin by (my personal hero) Tina Connolly:
The inscription reads, “For Shane, who is willing to win all the things”. You see, Tina Connolly is who I want to be when I grow up, so naturally whenever she offers a giveaway, I enter. Given the paragraph at the top of this post, I *ahem* have done pretty well.
I haven’t actually read Ironskin yet (would you believe it arrived mere hours after I finally laid my hands on a copy of The Windup Girl, which is sort of my equivalent of Wily Coyote catching The Roadrunner), but I don’t hesitate to recommend it, because Tina is the best (and it was nominated for a Nebula, if you’re into that kind of thing).
So, universe, take note! I am, indeed, willing to win all the things.
