American Demon Freebies: how to get in on this

Get your envelopes ready, the AMERICAN DEMON tour freebies are in, and because I’m not counting on the tour to happen in the usual way, I made sure these things are MAILABLE!! I’m going to miss you guys if I can’t get out, but being able to send you something you’d only get at an in-person signing makes it easier to swallow.

This year, I recreated the store bag from Patricia’s Spell Shop, right downtown Cincinnati. Remember the spell shop that Minias and Al trashed? That’s the one. The store features in the new book as well, and though the bag won’t have the charms in it that Rachel gets from Patricia’s shop, you can still get the bag. All you have to do is send me a SASE. (Self -Addressed, Stamped Envelope)

If you’ve never sent me a SASE before, I’ve got an example of what you make up and mail me below.

My address goes in the upper left, yours in the middle so I can send it back to you with the freebie in it, and don’t forget the stamp. Fold it up, and mail it to me at the address below. In a few weeks, you should get your envelope back with a freebie in it. It’s that simple! (and for you stay-at-home/homeschooling parents, a possible lesson?)

SASE

This is what you mail me to get your freebie

Please don’t use metallic ink. The post office can’t handle it, and we’ve lost some. Also, those little return address stickers don’t work well either.

If you are outside the U.S., don’t put return postage on your SASE. We’ll take care of it because the US postal people make International Reply Coupons way too confusing. We got this.

Also, I’ve done some research, and from what I’ve been able to find out, Covid-19 lasts on printer paper for only a few hours. (FYI, paper money is different. It lasts for days.) So don’t worry about sending/receiving them. All the same, Tim will be wearing gloves and a mask while processing them, and he would appreciate it if you use a self-stick envelop if you have them. If not, don’t make a special trip to find them. It’s all okay.

I hope to see some of these in my mailbox soon. I can’t wait to start sharing them with you!

Enter the AMERICAN DEMON ARC give-away

** UPDATE** Jo has won and claimed the second ARC. Come back every Tuesday April and May for a chance to win another.

Hi all.

It’s the second give-away for an ARC of AMERICAN DEMON. I’ll be doing this every Tuesday from now until June. Here’s how you enter today!

Using an email you have access to for the next five days, email Tim at <coldtoastwritingsllc@comcast.net>  Put “Favorite Homemade cookie” in the subject line so we know you’re entering the contest. In the email, tell me your favorite homemade cookie! (You can also share it here. Bonus points for a picture!–which actually get you nothing except the chance to brag about your baking skills.) One entry per household please.

I will cut off entries at midnight, PST on Wednesday, April 8. I will announce the winner on Thursday morning, AND email them back for the address where they want me to mail the ARC to as well as find out if and how they want me to sign it.  Winners will have until that 3/10 Friday midnight to get back to me to claim the ARC and tell me their mailing address. If I don’t hear from you by Friday, 3/10, midnight, the ARC goes back in the pool and I will give away two next week. Amber won last week out of an amazing 2000+ entries. Congrats, Amber!

Out of the U.S? You can still enter. ARCs have no cash value, though they may get held up in customs forever. Books will go out USPS media mail, which takes some time. Chance of winning depends upon how many enter. Winners will be chosen by a random number generator, and I can’t be responsible for mail that goes astray.

That’s it. Apart from coming  back next Tuesday to enter again with a new question! I’ve got a bunch of these to give away.

And good luck!

If you want to skip the chaos and pre-order, I have a list of my favorite stores that I’ve signed at. If you like your local store where they are, please consider ordering online from them. Not just my book, but any book.

Nicola’s Books, Ann Arbor, MI **Personalized copies available**

e-book price drop, on one of my Hollows favorites!

We are getting closer to AMERICAN DEMON’s release, and things are really starting to pop! I’ve seen the actual, real cover, and man, ACE is doing it up amazingly. The cover just feels substantial, and the spine is pretty thick.

If you are planning on re-reading the series before AMERICAN DEMON, there is still time. The read-a-long over at — Goodreads — has moved up to PALE DEMON, but all the folders are there and running if you want to dive in now and start at DEAD WITCH WALKING.

But for the next few days, Harper has okayed a short-lived price reduction for the e-book. Take advantage of it! It won’t last long, and it’s a nice way to round out your e-library and give your paperbacks a rest. 😉  Links below.

Amazon Kindle    Barnes and Noble Nook

Because this is a publisher-sponsored price reduction, it is unfortunately for U.S. only.

A-a-a-and, as in previous years, Nicola’s has opened up their pre-orders for AMERICAN DEMON!  If you’re looking for a signed/personalized book, here’s where you can get it. International orders are A-ok. Just email them first from the order page. Let me know who you want it personalized to in the comment’s section at Nicola’s order page.

Read-a-long price drop and signed American Demons!

The read-a-long over at — Goodreads — has moved up to WHITE WITCH BLACK CURSE, and to mark it, Harper has okayed a short-lived price reduction for the e-book. Take advantage of it! It won’t last long, and it’s a nice way to round out your e-library and give your paperbacks a rest. 😉 At the moment, both The Outlaw Demon Wails and White Witch, Black Curse are on sale for 1.99 Links below.

Amazon Kindle    Barnes and Noble Nook

Because this is a publisher-sponsored price reduction, it is unfortunately for U.S. only.

If you’re just now hearing about the read-a-long, the folders for the earlier titles will remain active, so come on over! We’re getting closer to AMERICAN DEMONS release, but there’s still time to binge-read the series!

For The Outlaw Demon Wails, Read-a-long/price drop

The read-a-long over at — Goodreads — has moved up to THE OUTLAW DEMON WAILS, and to mark it, Harper has okayed a short-lived price reduction for the e-book. Take advantage of it! It won’t last long, and it’s a nice way to round out your e-library and give your paperbacks a rest. 😉

Because this is a publisher-sponsored price reduction, it is unfortunately for U.S. only.

If you’re just now hearing about the read-a-long, the folders for the earlier titles will remain active, so come on over! The conversation has been lagging because of the holidays, but don’t let that stop you. Outlaw Demo Wails is one of my favorites.

THE OUTLAW DEMON WAILS : KINDLE

THE OUTLAW DEMON WAILS : NOOK

Also, if you haven’t seen it, we have a cover for the upcoming AMERICAN DEMON, which is the next installment of the Rachel/Trent drama. I absolute love it, and I hope you do, too.

‘Twas the week before Christmas, and up in the Hollows . . .

‘Twas the week before Christmas, and up in the Hollows,
Solstice bonfires were burning, to toast the marshmallows.

The pixies were snug in their stump, even Jenks,
Who claimed he was tired, and needed some winks.

So I in my parka, and Ivy in her boots,
Were toasting the season, with thirty-year hooch.

When out in the street, there came such a crash,
I thought that it had to be ‘coons in our trash.

Away to the gate, I trudged through the snow,
While Ivy just said, “If it’s Kist, say hello.”

I lifted the latch, and peered to the street,
My face went quite cold.  We were in it thigh deep.

‘Twas a demon, who stood in the headlamps quite bright,
With his coat of green velvet, and his uncommon height.

His eyes, how they glittered, his teeth how they gnashed,
His voice, how he bellowed, his tongue, how it lashed.

The street wasn’t holy, so on Big Al came,
As he bellowed, and shouted, and called me by name.

“Morgan, you witch.  You’re a pain in my side.
“Get out of your church.  There’s no place to hide!”

Like hell’s fury unleashed, he strode to my door,
Where he hammered and cursed, like a cheap jilted whore.

But Ivy and I, we circled round back,
To stand in the street and prepare for attack.

“You loser,” I shouted.  “I’m waiting for you.”
And the demon, he spun, taking on a red hue.

Ivy stood ready, and I whispered, “Okay . . .
“If he wants to get rough, I’m ready to play.”

With nary a word, us two girls got to work,
Putting foot into gut, of the soul-sucking jerk.

I circled him quick, with a few words of Latin,
While Ivy distracted him with lots of good wackin’

“Get back!” I yelled out when my trap was complete,
And Ivy somersaulted right over the creep.

My circle sprang up, entrapping him surely,
Al fussed and he fumed, like a demonic fury.

The neighbors all cheered, and came out of their houses,
Where they’d watched the whole thing, like little house mouses.

So Ivy and I, we both bowed real low,
Then banished Big Al, in an overdone show.

But I heard Al exclaim, ‘ere he poofed from our sight
“You won this time witch, but I’ll get you one night!”
