One Week Left (and Another Book Giveaway)
Only one week until the official launch of Red Hood’s Revenge [B&N | Mysterious Galaxy | Amazon], though the book is already showing up in a fair number of bookstores. I’ve been counting down to the release by giving away a free book each week.
Congratulations to last week’s winner, Katherine O’Kelly.
I’ve seen a few reports pop up from readers who have picked up a copy of Red Hood. Early reactions seem to be pretty positive, and so far I haven’t had the anxiety dream where Darth Vader shows up, waving a copy of the book at me and saying in that raspy voice, “I find your lack of plot disturbing.”
Anyway, for the eighth and final book giveaway–
No, wait. I just had a better idea. I’m far too amused by the idea of Darth Vader as a reviewer or critiquer. So for this giveaway, leave a comment with another Vader-style critique of my book. (You may also use other Star Wars characters if you like … except for Jar-Jar!)
Post your answer, and I’ll pick one winner at random next week. (Please note that I’ll be up north next week, and Internet access will be spotty, so I don’t know exactly when I’ll be able to choose and announce the winner.) The winner receives her/his choice of one of the following:
ETA: Heh … everyone’s being so nice! My ego appreciates this, but it’s certainly not required. “What a piece of junk!” is an equally acceptable critique 🙂

“Are you sure this plot is going to work?”
“Hey, it’s me.”

“The power to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of a Princess with attitude.”

It seems, in your anger, you killed it!

“I find your lack of these books disturbing…”
June 29, 2010 @ 12:15 pm
Jim, I am your reader.

I sense a disturbance in the series…
June 29, 2010 @ 12:41 pm
I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has been published.

I find *my* lack of this book disturbing!
June 29, 2010 @ 2:43 pm
Plots do not concern me, Admiral. I want that book, not excuses!
June 29, 2010 @ 4:28 pm
Yes, your thoughts betray you. Your feelings for them are strong. Especially for… The Stepsister Scheme. Jim Hines was wise to hide it from me. Now his failure is complete.
June 29, 2010 @ 4:33 pm
Strong with this book you are.
June 29, 2010 @ 6:50 pm
Don’t be too proud of this fantasmagorical delight you’ve created. The ability to entertain a planet is insignificant next to the power of the Force.
