Two of my writer friends have some great news to help us all get through the long slog of winter in front of us. First, Theodora Goss's novel/objet d'art The Thorn and the Blossom is coming out next week on Jan. 17th, and she is conducting three book giveaways before then.

Book giveaway #1 has already happened, but book giveaway #2 is going on right now at her blog. If you want to enter, head over to her blog and do the following,
If you would like to enter, write a paragraph or so in response to the following question, and post it as a comment to Book Giveaway #2 below!

Here is the question: If you could travel anywhere, where would it be, and what would you do when you got there? It can be a real place, or a place that you or someone else has imagined. Again, be creative!
Even if you don't enter, it's fun to read the other entries. But, then again, why wouldn't you want to enter? Free, awesome book!

On to good news missive number two: My friend, horror writer Nathan Ballingrud, has just found a home for his short story collection, tentatively titled Monsters of Heaven: stories, with Small Beer Press. Small Beer is the publisher of the most excellently quirky Lady Churchill's Rosebud Wristlet and a growing number of beautifully inventive literary novels and story collections that defy neatly-drawn genre lines. I'm so happy for Nathan. This collection is long in coming and well deserved. You can read more about the collection and its release on Nathan's blog.
