I'd like to thank everyone for entering and for helping me to spread the word. The comments were really fun to read, and I had trouble refraining from responding to many of them. You really made my day.

Even if you didn't win, please keep an eye on this web site. I'll be giving away a few more free bonus chapters over the next couple of weeks.

Book Giveaway, Round 2

I hope everyone (or at least those of you in the US) managed to eat some nice food, and survived Black Friday with a minimal amount of bruising.

also, let me apologize for any confusion about the book's release date. Every time I checked in with Amazon, the release date had changed. The good news is, the book is now definitely available everywhere:

Cyber Monday also seems like an appropriate time to launch the second round of ebook give-aways. Let's keep this simple. The rules are the same as last time.

Leave a comment below. You don't need to log in with your email address, but please leave me some way to contact you (twitter, g+, email, whatever). If I cannot contact you, you cannot win. Also, please only enter once. I will go through and delete duplicate entries.

Finally, contact me if you have trouble leaving a contact for any reason.

This round will last until Monday, December 9th at noon EST. Again, I will be giving away five copies of the ebook. We've got a bit more time for this round, so please help me spread the word.

Thanks, and good luck!
