American Demon First Chapter Sneak Peek and ARC contest

We are four weeks out, which means I can give you a little teaser! It’s just the first page here, but follow the link to my website for the entire first chapter of AMERICAN DEMON. It’s a huge relief to be able to share this with you. This industry moves so slowly, and even with being the Queen of Delayed Gratification, the wait from first idea to shelf is long. So please, take a look and tell me if I lost Rachel’s voice or if she’s still the girl you knew next door. I missed her. Having her back makes my world feel a little more normal.

AND…

I’m giving away an ARC this week! If you have already entered one of the previous contests, that’s A-OK. You can enter every week. This time, I’m looking for your favorite breakfast cereal when you were a kid. (and if you still eat it!)

Using an email you have access to for the next five days, email Tim at <coldtoastwritingsllc@comcast.net>  Put “My favorite cereal” in the subject line so we know you’re entering the contest. In the email, tell me what cereal you couldn’t wait to dig that spoon into when you were growing up–and if you still find yourself putting it in the shopping cart today. Mine was, ah…Lucky Charms. I kid you not.

You can also share your favorite cereal here, too. One entry per household please.

I will cut off entries at midnight, PST on Wednesday, May 20th. Winner will be announced Thursday morning, after I email he or she 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 Friday, May 22nd, 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, May 22nd. midnight, the ARC goes back in the pool and I will give away two next week. Last week, Debra won out of 1,000+ entries. Congrats, Debra!

Out of the U.S? We were having some issues, but we’ve since found a way to ship books to Mexico or Canada, so you are again welcome to enter. Envelopes and letters are still okay even overseas, (so you can still send me a SASE for a freebie)

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 this one and one more left to give away.

And good luck!

–Kim

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.

Buck, buck, buck? Price drop: Every Which Way but Dead

Hi All,

In celebration of the upcoming release of AMERICAN DEMON, (Yay, Rachel and Trent!) I am hosting a read-a-long over at Goodreads. We’re just now starting Every Which Way but Dead, and if you want to join in, come on over!  — Goodreads — My biggest surprise when I wrote it was Ceri. Two weeks of plotting on paper down the crapper right from page one. (happy sigh)

Even better, there’s a rolling price reduction going on, even if you are not a member of Goodreads. So if you can’t find your books or simply want to round out your e-library, this is a relatively painless way to do it. Or even better, get a book for that stubborn reader in your life who just won’t give the Hollows a try. 😉

Today we officially begin Every Which Way but Dead, so you can find it for a limited time for .99. Yep, less than a dollar! So cheap, you can buy it for a friend. 😉

If you’re just now hearing about the read-a-long, the folders for Dead Witch Walking, and The Good, The Bad, and The Undead will remain active, and I’ll continue to be checking them as we go along.

The Hollows Read-A-Long/price drop

Hi All,

In celebration of the upcoming release of AMERICAN DEMON, (Yay, Rachel and Trent!) I am hosting a read-a-long over at Goodreads. We’re almost up to 1000 members, and the chatting is good! I love hearing about your favorite quotes and what you are getting out of the books a second time with the gift of foresight. If you want to join in, come on over!  — Goodreads — I’ve been following and answering questions as we went through Dead Witch Walking, and it’s been a lot of fun!

But even if you are not a member of Goodreads, you can take advantage of the rolling price reductions that Harper has graciously agreed to. Right now, Dead Witch Walking and The Good, the Bad, and The Undead are on sale, so if you can’t find your books or simply want to round out your e-library, this is a relatively painless way to do it. Or even better, get a book for that stubborn reader in your life who just won’t give the Hollows a try. 😉

Today we begin The Good, The Bad, and the Undead, but the folders of conversation are still active for Dead Witch Walking, and I’ll be checking them as we go along.

Hollows read-a-long Yep, we’re doing it!

Hi all. Kim here.

Got a favorite Hollows quote? Have a burning question? Guess what? I’m hosting a Hollows read-a-long!

To celebrate (and get ready for) the release of AMERICAN DEMON in June, I’m hosting a read-a-long where you can gush, and laugh, and cry, and commiserate with like minded readers of the Hollows. I’ll also have information on flash sales as they come up, (fingers crossed) and who knows, I might just have a give-away or two.

We’re starting Dead Witch Walking TODAY! And though we’re taking some time for this first one to help get organized and find a large group, I plan on burning through the series pretty quickly. (If you want a slower read-a-long, there’s another going at The Cincy Underground over on FB.)

I’m structuring this to have one or two sharp breaking points per book where you can talk without the spoiler tags, but I’m counting on you all to start discussions and topics as we go. I have no idea what you want to talk about, so jump in and take part. I’ve always been proud of the way my readers can discuss without arguing, and I’m looking forward to talking with you and hearing your thoughts. 🙂

Not a member of Goodreads yet? You’re in for a treat! Sign-up is easy, and it’s an amazing place to find new reads and friends who appreciate reading what you do. Why Goodreads? They have a great setup to structure read-a-longs on, so check it out. Everyone there loves books. Everyone.

Also, I’m still looking for some moderators. I’m hoping to have 13 with the intent being that each book have a designated head moderator who will chaperon the read-a-long with me for the duration of their book, giving the other 12 moderators a bit of a break. (Though obviously, if you’re a moderator, you’re able to moderate through the entire read-a-long.)  So far, we have Joseph for A FISTFUL OF CHARMS, Liz H. for WHITE WITCH, BALCK CURSE, and Karen for PALE DEMON. (Thank you so much, Joseph, Liz, and Karen!)

If you are interested, please let me know at Goodreads at the introduction thread. I’ll be looking for you there!

2019 Read-along to AMERICAN DEMON

Quick heads up! I’m sponsoring a Hollows read-along over on Goodreads starting next month and running to the release of AMERICAN DEMON on June 16, 2020. And because I know not everyone is on Goodreads, I’ll be answering questions here as well but in a much more haphazard format and not as cozy.

Come back on Monday for Goodreads links and the schedule of what we’re reading when, but because there are so many to get through, it’s going to be a book every two to three weeks with a few weeks off in December.

If you want to get a head start, we’re starting at the beginning with Dead Witch Walking.

Happy reading!

–Kim
