Fantastic Folk Friday - The Swap (Plus a Giveaway)

I shall try not to squee too much, but I received two fabulous books in the mail this week. The Ultimate perVERSEities by Kurt Newton and Cthulhurotica edited by Carrie Cuinn.

And both were born of swaps... I sent Kurt and Carrie 'Strange Men' and they sent me their books. Swaps rock. This is my second swap with Kurt. I traded my novelette Olive Lemon for his Black Butterflies last year. This could become a habit. (And he wrote the nicest, quirkiest inscription inside).

And Cthulhurotica is double the goodness, not only is it edited by Carrie, but it also includes a KV Taylor story, Transfigured Night. Katey gets into all the best books. The anthology also includes stories and essays by Jennifer Brozek, Cody Goodfellow, Mae Empson, Nathan Crowder, Don Pizarro, Silvia Moreno-Garcia and many others.

Now onto the giveaway. Carrie sent me two copies of Cthulhurotica and I want to give one away to you. So what do you have to do to enter... Leave a comment saying you'd like to be entered in the draw.

And if you don't win you can find more information about Cthulhurotica and Dagan Books next anthology In Situ at their website. Actually, you can find out more info even if you do win. I'm generous like that. Closing date is Friday 18th February 2011, midnight (your time). And if you haven't yet picked up a copy of Strange Men let me know and I'll throw in a copy of that book too.

Book giveaway? Well, you know me. Free is definitely in my price range, so I'll throw my name in the hat.

Ooh, yes, please, enter me Cate!

Um, that sounded a bit wrong, didn't it?

Never mind.

Yes, please (enter me in the draw). And when will Strange Men be available for Gizmo the Talking Kindle? I downloaded Aaron's Loathsome and Alex's Cassastar this week, and I'd sure like to add yours as well...

Katey said...

Yay for free books! I really hope you like the freakiness, Cate. My first erotica story, I'm so proud of the little guy! (Or guys, I guess, depending on how we're looking at it.)

Awesome giveaway :D

It's a gorgeous looking book, Katey (and I love your story title).

Enter me! Although if I throw this beside Rigor Amortis my bedside table is gonna start looking a little bit suspect.
