Suzanne wrote:

I absolutely love the Sookie Stackhouse books, and I credit Charlaine Harris with part of my love of all things vampire [especially Eric *g*] and to celebrate her being No. 1 on the New York Times ~ squeeeeee! ~ I'm starting my next weekly giveaway early.

So to win a copy of Dead and Gone :: Book 9 in The Southern Vampire series along with a signed copy of The Sweet Scent of Blood please leave your congratulations for Charlaine in the comments before end of day [anywhere] Thursday, 28th May. See it's that easy. And don't forget to check back to see if you've won, and to enter next week's giveaway.

ETA: I haven't read Dead and Gone yet, [it doesn't come out in the UK until the middle of June, so not fair *pout* ] so please, no spoilers in the comments, not even little hints . . . *claps hands over ears* :-)

Okay, this is on a completely different note. Apparently, going around the internet are sites that are basically stealing the fantastic work all the great authors we know and love are publishing. It amounts to someone else taking the credit for the hard work you do. You know what I mean? You go to work and work hard all day for your money, then someone you don't even know stops by your desk, nabs what you've spent all day doing and gives it to your boss and reaps the rewards, then your boss stops by your desk and explains how you won't be getting paid because of the lack of work (not productive, no $$$$$). Is this fair? NO. Does it make you so mad that you can't see straight? YES. I mean a book costs between $3.00 to $7.00 for a paperback, less if you can find it used, or free if you go to your local library and borrow it. We love that these wonderful authors and publishers who give us free books for contests, as well as hours of enjoyment from their wonderful words. But if they can't make any money, they can't give us anymore books, free or not :( Let's support our favorite authors. Just my thoughts about a situation that should not be happening.

Great post Dottie!

Thanks for the contest heads up. :)

I know, this book piracy issue is unspeakably horrible.

Hi Lea!

Your welcome!

I hate the idea that someone would steal a book when it's so easy to go the library and borrow it. It just doesn't make sense.

I hope you're enjoying your weekend too! (Company all day today.)
