I posted pictures of tarantulas on Facebook that were in and outside our garage the other day. Along the side I'm posting one tarantula picture as well as three shots, increasingly closer, of what I think is a tarantula nest. Afterward is a picture of our largest cactus showing how many tuna (fruit) it has this year.
I have several bits of news to share.
|Can you spot the spider nest?|
First, the Hadley Rille Books' Indiegogo
ends in about 11 hours! If you've been meaning to support this great small press (which publishes great fantasy, science fiction, and historical fiction), now's your last chance to get the great Indiegogo perks. (You can contribute to HRB at any time, but only now will you get signed books or a teeshirt for doing so.) To donate, go to https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/support-the-growth-of-hadley-rille-books-a-quality-small-press-publisher?sa=0&sp=0
Also, I am offering additional perks; find out at my last blog post at http://www.shaunaroberts.com/2014/07/extra-perks-for-hrb-indiegogo.html
what I'm offering to people who donate.
Second, the Goodreads giveaway
for my new self-published novel, Claimed by the Enemy
, ends in about 11 hours as well. Claimed by the Enemy
is a historical novel with strong romantic elements set in ancient Mesopotamia. To enter for a chance to win a signed trade paperback, click on the button in the Goodreads ad at top right or go to https://www.goodreads.com/giveaway/show/99751-claimed-by-the-enemy
|Do you agree it's a tarantula nest?|
If you don't trust your luck, you can buy the novel outright at Amazon.com as a trade paperback
and as a Kindle ebook
; it's also available at Barnes and Noble online as a trade paperback
Third, most of the data from my previous newsletter
list was lost. I am collecting names again for a newsletter that would probably come out three or four times a year. Each would include news and a giveaway and possibly some photos as well. To sign up, type in your email address in the very pale form in the right column or go to http://eepurl.com/Fr3Hf
Fourth, if you like to listen to audiobooks
, my 2009 historical novel Like Mayflies in a Stream
and my 2012 sf novelette "The Hunt" are both now available as audiobooks. Find them at Audible.com and at Amazon.com.
Fifth, I have a new dark historical fantasy novelette
coming out tomorrow or Saturday. It's entitled The Measure of a Man
, and I will be self-publishing it as a Kindle book. The hook: zombies in paradise
. I'll post the link when it is up. UPDATE
: The ebook is up at .
