Book Giveaway: A Pretty Mouth

Since July 2010, TNBBC has been bringing authors and readers together every month to get behind the book! This unique experience wouldn't be possible without the generous donations of the authors and publishers involved.  

I'm excited to be partnering with Lazy Fascist Press
to bring you next month's Author/Reader Discussion book!

We will be reading and discussing A Pretty Mouth 

In order to stimulate discussion, 
Lazy Fascist Press has agreed to give away 15 eBooks (mobi format)

Here is the Goodreads description:

Re-Animator meets The Secret History in this Tale of Sex and Science
Henry Milliner thinks his days of being the school pariah are over forever when he attracts the attention of Wadham College's coolest Fellow Commoner, St John Clement, the Lord Calipash. St John is everything Henry isn't: Brilliant, graceful, rich, universally respected. And as if that wasn't enough, St John is also the leader of the Blithe Company, the clique of Natural Philosophy majors who rule Wadham with style. But when being St John's protege ends up becoming a weirder experience than Henry anticipated -- and the Blithe Company doesn't quite turn out to be the decadent, debauched crew he dreamed of -- Henry has some big decisons to make. Should he beg the forgiveness of his only friend, naive underclassman John Wilmot, 2nd Earl of Rochester, or should he ride it out with St John and try to come out on top?

Tangling with a Calipash is an invariably risky endeavor. From antiquity to the modern era, few who have encountered members of that family have benefited from the acquaintance. If only Henry knew the that Calipashes are notorious for their history of sinister schemes, lewd larks, and eldritch experiments, he would realize there are way worse things than being unpopular...

This giveaway will run through January 8th.

  16. Hi Lori!
    Huzzah! Glad you found me through my blog, then, since I neglected to leave an email address! Use my personal email: flood -at- gerbilprobe -dot- com if that works for you. Most excellent! If you dig weird lit (which you obviously do) check out my debut novella Party Wolves in My Skull, also! It's a fun trip, and it was released by eraserhead (Lazy Fascist's parent imprint) last year. Much love!
