In which I win all the things

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:

IronskinI assure you the ink is much more glittery than it appears in this picture.

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.
