The great and wonderful John Cleaver contest!

Thursday, July 3rd, 2014

The time has come, and tomorrow is the official launch day for Next of Kin, the new John Cleaver novella. This novella is a great way to get a head start on the new John Cleaver series, which starts next year with The Devil’s Only Friend, but you know what’s an even better way to get a head start? How about just reading the whole novel a year early? This sounds like a job for: a contest!

Here’s the deal: Next of Kin is on sale pretty much everywhere books are sold, and you can even get it Print on Demand if you really love paper. Buy a copy, take a screenshot of the receipt, and email it to, and you’ll be entered in a drawing; the winner, to be determined on July 11, will be chosen at random from among those emails, and I will send that winner an electronic copy of the manuscript for The Devil’s Only Friend.

Kindle: 2.99

Smashwords: 2.99

Nook: 2.99

Print on Demand: $6.99

If you happen to be in our near Salt Lake City, come to the live launch party at WesterCon, Friday morning at 11:30, in the con suite (room 1508). We’ll have free pizza, a reading, and several hard copies for sale which I will lovingly sign just for you. And if you really know your John Cleaver trilogy, you just might win another copy of The Devil’s Only Friend….

Spread the word! Tell all your friends! Buy fifty-seven copies and get your Christmas shopping done early! This new series is awesome, and I can’t wait for you to read it.
