Contest Round 15: Mark Del Franco

Sorry about the delay in posting this week's entry in the Contest Extravaganza. I'm working a double all week at my dayjob and to add to the fun, my Internet connection is acting a bit squirrely. But, it's time for the free book fun! In this week's edition of the Contest Extravaganza I am giving way a copy of Mark Del Franco's Unshapely Things, which is the first book in the Conner Grey series.

Here is a quick description of Unshapely Things:

"In the alleys of the decrepit Boston neighborhood known as the Weird, fairy prostitutes are turning up dead. The crime scenes show signs of residual magic, but the Guild, which polices the fey, has more "important" crimes to investigate and dumps the case on human law enforcement.

Boston police call in Connor Grey, a druid and former hotshot Guild investigator-whose magical abilities were crippled after a run-in with a radical environmentalist elf. As Connor battles red tape and his own shortcomings, he realizes that the murders are not random, but part of an ancient magical ritual. And if Connor can't figure out the killer's M.O., the culmination of the spell might just bring about a worldwide cataclysm."

I know you're interested now!

Here are some quick rules for entering today's contest.

Please leave a comment with your name in this entry in my blogger or LiveJournal account.

The contest is open to domestic and international readers

The contest will close at midnight Eastern time on Saturday, October 24, 2009.

The contest will be announced on Sunday, October 25, 2009.

The winner will have until Sunday, November 1, 2009 or the book will be placed out for another contest.
