slipping it in on friday

very large thanks to Morowa Yejidé for her lovely review of my novel Freight at the PANK blog:

"Freight may be one of the few books where there is plenty of room to bring in one’s own baggage, have a seat, and enjoy the ride."

Also, Flying Object in Hadley, Massachusetts is having an awesome book sale. Check out more details HERE.

Lastly, the KUBOA Press edition of my novella Grease Stains, Kismet, and Maternal Wisdom makes friends at the local laundromat.

The G3 Giveaway Contest Thing

Purchase a copy of my new novel Freight. Prove to me that you bought it. Take a screen shot of your receipt or something. Then email it to me at eddiesocko[at]gmail[dot]com.

The contest will end on October 2nd, which is this Sunday. That night or sometime the next day I'll randomly select an entrant's name from a hat. It could be your name.

And then you'll win all 3 editions (Aqueous Books, Brown Paper Publishing, KUBOA Press) of my novella Grease Stains, Kismet, and Maternal Wisdom.

Pretty simple.

Good luck.

Wish Tank

Laura Ellen Scott is pretty awesome.

She has a forthcoming book called Death Wishing.

She also has a collection of wishes in her Wish Tank.

Read my wish HERE.

Then read some other wishes.

Then think about maybe sending her a wish of your own.

Then think about autumn.

Then think about how good her book would look on your table in autumn.

"...Bosworth refuses to present a one-dimensional, doomed version of existence. His understanding is far subtler than that, more elegant."

Have a great day.
