Is this thing on?
Hey, I just figured out that most of the country is likely still on vacation, today. I know, I’m terribly swift. Yes. So I’m going to take the opportunity to slack off a bit, myself, but first I thought I’d leave you with a contest.
Our generous pals at Hachette are stepping up once again, this time in celebration of Anne Zouroudi’s brand-spanking-new novel, The Messenger of Athens. Set in Greece, one review characterized the book this way: “This powerfully atmospheric mystery embraces Mediterranean passion, mythic meddling and patriarchal persecution.” I don’t know what that says to you, but to me that pretty much says “Perfect summer read.”
Five lucky Want Not readers are going to receive a copy of The Messenger of Athens just for being pretty. And for entering this contest. Want to play? First go review the contest rules and regulations, then come on back here and leave a comment on this post by 8:00 a.m. Eastern (that’s 5:00 a.m. Pacific) on Thursday, July 8th, 2010 to be entered. Winners to be determined by random number generation and general mystique.
