We're Firing Up the Grill for July!

Take five hot titles, five fresh authors, and five days of contests and prizes. Stir well. Sprinkle with humor. Add a dash of snark. Toast lightly and serve warm.

Care to try a sample? Here's what's on the menu July 21 - 25.

Monday, July 21: Elizabeth Arnold, Promise the Moon - In the heart of a family lies shattering secrets - and a love that lasts forever. Keep those hankies close.

Tuesday, July 22: Jeff Somers, The Digital Plague - Techno-thriller. Cyborgs. Nanobots. Reanimated corpses. Do you really need to know more?

Wednesday, July 23: Xujun Eberlein, Apologies Forthcoming - Stories about China's Cultural Revolution and its aftermath. Humanistic, disturbing, enthralling.

Thursday, July 24: Sandra Cormier, Bad Ice - Hockey. Attempted murder. Romance. A cute kid. And Canada! Ahh, guilty pleasure number one.

Friday, July 25: Nicola Marsh, The Desert Prince's Proposal - Mix one independent Aussie lady with a hot desert prince and what do you get? Mmm. Guilty pleasure number two.

We'll be open for business 9:00 am ET, Monday, July 21. Seating is unlimited. No reservations required. Shoes and shirts optional.

Plus, new 24-hour business hours for the week means as soon as one contest is done, we start cooking with another! No waiting!

Well, I'm going to have to read the "rules," but before I do ('cause I don't have time to do it right now) I'm going to have to rescue Margaret Atwood's books from the fire in which Piika wants to roast them. She's one of my many many favorites.

The deleted comment is exactly the one that I wrote here, only with a typo correction.

Sounds interesting. I'll try to be back, but am a bit busy with daughter number one's wedding.

Monique, tell your daughter we're more fun than her (future) husband, and bring her along too.

Why, I am certainly lookin' forward to speakin' with that nice Miss Arnold on Monday morning, as I want to ask her all about that promising the moon stuff, and if that has anything at all to do with nakidity, or if it is, in fact, about how men promise a girl the moon and then all the women get is, well, you know...not the moon.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to finding out all about the moon, and if Miss Arnold has ever tasted Moon Pies. They are, after all, a moon that can be counted on to fulfill a girl's needs for something tasty.

I'll see you all Monday, then.

Bye Bye for now.
