Want a free copy of The Bookseller?

One of the best reviews yet from the site Buried Under Books.  I love the final paragraph the most:

To me, three things are most evident when an author is really good. First is strong characters, second is a plot that grabs me and won’t let go, and third is a mastery of the English language.  Mark Pryor has it all in his first novel and I can’t wait for his next Hugo Marston mystery.

Not surprising I'd like that bit, eh?  (And no, I didn't bribe anyone. . ., though I'm not saying I'm above that. . .)

Anyway, you can enter the drawing for a free copy of the book, just visit the site here and drop a comment about a great new book or author you've discovered recently.  Yep, it's that easy. 

And, come to think of it, I'm always up for hearing about new writers or books, so get to it!

  6. Congrats Julz! I really hope you enjoy the book, I have no idea if it's even available in Oz. If not, well, you'll have the only copy on the continent! Let me know if you like it, okay? (And if not, lie to me!)

  9. Richard, thanks very much! If by "former" you mean "retired," I hope it's treating you well. :)

  10. Actually, I am working harder than ever! When my three sons decided to go to law school, and began graduating, I had to make a career choice and chose family over working for the government! In other words, I left prosecution and entered private practice in order to go into business with my sons! So, please be understanding when I point out that the former career prosecutor is now a divorce lawyer and ... a criminal defense lawyer! Again, I believe you have a great blog!

  11. All is forgiven Richard, family is the most important thing after all. And thanks again!
