Is one of these yours?

So . . . while you wait for AMERICAN DEMON (the next installment of Rachel in the Hollows) I’ve got something really special. A nice little tidbit of magic and what is real, and what we want to be real. PREfunctory afFECTION (or PERFECTION for short) is already up for preorder, and today an excerpt has been added to the pre-order page. Look! Look! I signed one just for you!

Every one of these is hard cover, signed and numbered. A true collector copy. The extra-special, leather bound bunnies are already gone, but the regular, signed hardcovers are still available, but when they are gone, they are gone!

While there, check out your other favorite authors at Subterranean Press. You’ll be surprised at what your favorite authors have been doing. Subterranean Press books are usually small run and not readily available in the usual outlets, so this is pretty much the best way to get them. Perfection excerpt

Hollows Pumpkin Carving Contest-Winners!

Phew! Thanks for giving me the night to mull the nearly 100 entries for the Hollows Pumpkin Carving Contest. I have picked out my favorite 5+1, and randomly selected another 10 because I like giving away books, and I wish that I could give everyone who entered one.

So here they are, in no particular order. If you see your pumpkin, check your email for my “Congrats!” letter! You have until November the 8th to get back to me with a U.S. address to send your book to.

Thank you again for celebrating Halloween with me. It is one of my favorite holidays. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. You guys are the best!

Now available for pre-order at Subterranean Press, my next release. This is a VERY small print run for me, and PERFECTION will not be readily available in the usual stores. There’s only 1500 of them, hard cover, signed, and numbered. (I think the ultra-special leather-bound copies are already gone.) If you haven’t already found Subterranean Press, they are a high-end publisher with a beautiful product from your favorite authors. Do a search and check them out if you pop over to read the synopsis of PERFECTION.

I’m exhausted! Post Halloween blues

Oh, what a wonderful night, giving away at least 700 pieces of candy for two hours straight. The streets of my little town were full, and the weather cooperated. I swear, there were as many adults wandering around in costume as there were kids. I do love my street. Add in chili, homemade bread, and family to share it with, and I’m a happy girl.

Even better, the pumpkin patch just keeps growing! The contest for the ten random and five chosen winners is now closed. I need a day to look at them and find the most sincere. (wink) You guys amaze me with your talents. Tomorrow morning, I’ll inform the winners at the addresses they used to send me their photo, so check your in-box. 🙂 I’ll also post them here in a new blog, but wait for me to contact you if you see your pumpkin. 🙂

Thank you for playing along with me! You guys made my Halloween. You really did.

Happy Halloween!

It’s the last day to enter the Kim Harrison, pumpkin carving contest! I’ve gotten a lot the last few days, and just as a reminder, ten will be chosen at random as winners, and five will be chosen by me depending on my mood and how much candy I’ve eaten. Tomorrow I’ll share the winners with you after I get in and post the last entries from tonight.

Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays, and we have almost as many decorating tubs in the basement as we do for Christmas. That you guys are sharing the fun with me has really put the boo in my step. Thank you. 🙂

I also want to thank you for all the support and shares I got from you all the last few days concerning not just the contest, but for getting the word out about PERfunctory afFECTION (or just Perfection) which just came up on Subterranean for pre-order. One of the best ways to help your favorite authors is to share their presale/on-sale announcements even if you can’t buy the book, so THANK YOU! If you are curious, there’s a blurb on their site, but I’ll feature it myself after Halloween.

I got a few more entries last night, so check them out! If you’re just now joining the fun, I’m accepting pictures of your pumpkins (taken with your favorite or most accessible Hollows book) at my e-mail address here: Kim_harrison@comcast.net. Full rules are at the original post All Treat, No Trick.  Cut off for entries is Halloween night, midnight. Good luck, everyone! And thank you for playing along with me!

Pumpkin Contest (and upcoming PERFECTION release)

A big, sloppy-author thank you from me today to those of you who jumped on the presale of Perfection yesterday. I took a look at Subterranean’s ordering page last night, and my jaw hit my chest. The extra-special leather-bound copies are gone. Thank you for that. It made it hard to sleep. 😉 But in a good way. This book is me stretching without losing that Kim Harrison feel, and I hope those of you who get a chance to read it, enjoy it. If you are just now hearing about PERfunctory afFECTION, I talk more about it at yesterday’s post.

But we’re here for pumpkins and free Hollows books! Wow, did I get a lot of entries for the contest last night! Check them out. Some of you have taken this to a real art form. The talent! And thank you for your kind words on which Hollows book is your favorite and why. I’ve fallen back in love with the Hollows, and you’ll be glad to know I’m almost done with the rewrite for the next Rachel/Trent book (AMERICAN DEMON) and ready to send it to my agent to find a new home. I can’t wait for you to meet Hodin–a yummy slice of dark demon goodness.

If you’re just now joining the fun, I’m accepting pictures of your pumpkins (taken with your favorite or most accessible Hollows book) at my e-mail address here: Kim_harrison@comcast.net. Full rules are at the original post All Treat, No Trick.  I’m still taking entries until tomorrow night, Halloween. Good luck, everyone! And thank you for playing along with me!

New Contest Entries (and where to get my next book release!)

Sing it from the top of my roof, and pass it on. My new book has gotten its marching orders, and if you haven’t heard, PERfunctory afFECTION is now available for pre-order from Subterranean Press! (insert wild Snoopy dance here) Yes, it’s pricy, but the print run is like 2,000 copies instead of 200,000, and they are all signed. It’s a collector book, pure and simple, and will not be readily available in the stores. There are a few reasons for this, one of which is the length, (an odd size, but I cringed at padding it to get it novel length.) It’s also not your usual Kim Harrison fare, though it’s clearly from my pen. (Tim finished it and came into my office shouting, “No way!”) Perhaps I had a few issues to work out, having just left a situation that did its best to crush my will to write, but in any case, I wanted to give you the link today to give you a shot at them in case they go fast. Link to Subterranean. As I said, it’s a VERY small print run for me, and I can’t tell you how glad I am that Subterranean picked PERFECTION up. They are a high-end publisher, and if you haven’t heard of them, you are missing out on a lot of fabulous, unique publications by authors you know and love. Take a moment to do a search while there, and check them out.

But today, I want to focus on pumpkins and free Hollows books! There was a lot of carving going on this weekend, and here are the latest entries in the Hollows carving contest! I’m accepting pictures of your pumpkins (taken with your favorite or most accessible Hollows book) at my e-mail address here: Kim_harrison@comcast.net. Full rules are at the original post All Treat, No Trick. If I don’t get many more pumpkins, odds are really good you’re going to get one of the fifteen give-away books. (wink)

Are you carving this weekend? Hollows contest!

Tim’s and Kim’s pumpkins

If you saw my post Thursday, then you know I’m having another Halloween-themed contest this year, and it’s both just starting, and almost ending! But there’s still time.

This year, in return for your pictures of your carved pumpkins, (with your favorite Hollows book,) you are entered in my give away of fifteen signed books: 5 HOLLOWS INSIDERS, and 10 hard cover THE WITCH WITH NO NAME. Rules, how to enter, and where to send your picture is here: All Treat, No Trick

The photos are already coming in, and I’ll be posting them here for everyone! Thanks, guys, for making my Halloween a more fun than a basket of burning bunnies! You’re the best!

Happy carving!

Kim
