"C" Is For Contest, In Support Of My Cool Compadre

Prior to signing up for A to Z, I planned a giveaway in support of my dear writing friend.  Lucky for me, it fell on the "C" day, so it was easy to intertwine both.

J.M. Tohline's debut, The Great Lenore,will be released from Atticus Books on June 15.  It is currently available for pre-order from all major booksellers (Amazon, B&N, and Borders), and from Atticus Books with free shipping.
