It’s snowing right now as I type. Snowing as in, ‘we predict 18-24 inches in a 36-hour period.’ Some people are calling it the snowpocalypse, which I kind of like, because it sounds vaguely end-of-the-worldy, but mostly just silly and funny. And I’ve been kicking around the idea of a new giveaway.
BEHOLD, the giveaway has arrived. Last November I went to a Cherie Priest book-signing in Seattle (I took my Dad with me. He’s a trooper). I got two copies of Boneshaker signed – one for myself, and one for my blog. That book has been faithfully sitting on the shelf ever since, and it needs a new owner.
In the early days of the Civil War, rumors of gold in the frozen Klondike brought hordes of newcomers to the Pacific Northwest. Anxious to compete, Russian prospectors commissioned inventor Leviticus Blue to create a great machine that could mine through Alaska’s ice. Thus Dr. Blue’s Incredible Bone-Shaking Drill Engine was born.
But on its first test run the Boneshaker went terribly awry, destroying several blocks of downtown Seattle and unearthing a subterranean vein of blight gas that turned anyone who breathed it into the living dead.
Now it is sixteen years later, and a wall has been built to enclose the devastated and toxic city. Just beyond it lives Blue’s widow, Briar Wilkes. Life is hard with a ruined reputation and a teenaged boy to support, but she and Ezekiel are managing. That is, until Ezekiel undertakes a secret crusade to rewrite history.
His quest will take him under the wall and into a city teeming with ravenous undead, air pirates, criminal overlords, and heavily armed refugees. And only Briar can bring him out alive.
If you’d like to win your own copy of Boneshaker, this is your chance! I’ll give away one (1) SIGNED book to a lucky entrant.
