Shiloh Walker has fabulous news for fans of her Grimm Circle series. The novella, I Thought It Was You, is going to be available for free download at Samhain Publishing as well as the major retailers (although it is available now at Samhain). Here’s the blurb for I Thought It Was You.
The events of this free short story take place between the events of No Prince Charming and Ren’s story, Crazed Hearts. It turns out both Ren and Elle had some loose ends they needed to tie up…and that’s what this story is about. It’s not Ren’s happy ever after. That’s in Crazed Hearts.
Are you looking for an online Book Club that’s totally laid back (at least that’s the idea)? Then check out Literary Escapism’s Book Club over on GoodReads. Well, it starts off on GoodReads, but we’ll be discussing each months book in the Chat Room where everyone can join in. Read the book? Don’t read the book? It’s all good; everyone is more than welcome to join in the discussion. July’s book is Night’s Cold Kiss by Tracey O’Hara and August’s pick is being determined now.
Lauren Dane will be chatting live this Friday from 11:00-11:20am PST at Books on Board’s facebook fanpage wall.

Loucinda McGary Contest
I had the amazing Loucinda McGary on Literary Escapism last week. To celebrate the release of The Wild Irish Sea, Loucinda is giving away two copies of The Wild Irish Sea to a lucky winner. In order to enter, everyone had to answer the question: Is there a certain animal that triggers your imagination? Do you have a favorite animal (whether it’s a were or not) that you love to read about? Now, without further ado, the winners are:
PAM S who said: This sounds like a good book. I look forward to checking it out. Thank you for the great post as well. I’ve always been a fan of unicorns and dragons.
JENN who said: This book sounds wonderful! I love reading about wolves and big cats. I think they’re fascinating.
Congratulations Pam and Jenn!
You have one week to send me an email at jackie AT literaryescapism DOT com, otherwise I’ll draw a new name when I post the current contest winners next weekend.
