SERIAL: Free Downloadable eBook and AFRAID Giveaway!

Thanks to Brianne from Hachette Book Group I'm able to highlight a free, downloadable eBook from Jack Kilborn and Blake Crouch. It’s called SERIAL, a terrifying tale of hitchhiking gone terribly wrong. SERIAL is a horror novella and is like a deeply twisted version of an “After School Special.” It is the single most persuasive public service announcement on the hazards of free car rides.

The SERIAL eBook also contains a Q&A with Kilborn and Crouch, author bibliographies, and excerpts from their most recent and forthcoming works: Kilborn’s Afraid and Crouch’s Abandon.

I haven't read it yet, but it sounds great. I'll be reading it as soon as I can. Stay tuned for my review. To download your free copy of this eBook, click here. SERIAL is located under "Book Extras" in the bottom right-hand corner. You can download it either as a PDF file or there's also an ePub version of the book (the Sony eBook Reader format).

And that's not all. Brianne has also graciously offered up 5 copies of Afraid by Jack Kilborn for me to giveaway. How cool is that? It's a great book. Click here for my review.

For one entry, leave a comment below. For an extra entry, follow my blog. Leave a separate comment letting me know that you are a new follower or that you already follow me. Separate comments for each entry will be easier on me when I pick the winners.

Please leave an email address if there isn't one connected to your blog profile. You can't win, if I can't contact you.

- The giveaway is open to Canadian and US residents only. No P.O. boxes, please.
- You have until midnight (CDT), May 26, 2009 to enter.
- Five winners will be picked in a random draw by May 28, 2009. I'll email the winners at that time. Winners will have three days to respond with their mailing addresses.

Happy Reading and Good Luck in the giveaway!

Thanks so much for your comment. I really appreciate it. Unfortunately, I've been getting lots of spam comments, so I'm turning on word verification to help keep spammers away. I know it's a pain; I don't like it either. Hopefully, in time I'll be able to turn it off again. Thank you!
