Book Giveaway: Grey Cats

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 3 AM Press
to bring you next month's Author/Reader Discussion book!

We will be reading and discussing Grey Cats 

In order to stimulate discussion, 
3 AM Press has agreed to give away 10 eBooks (mobi and epub formats available)

Here is the Goodreads description:

As an ash cloud impends over Paris, our English narrator wakes up alone and heads out in search of his French girlfriend, a habitual night-time wanderer. Passing through the unfamiliar landscape he recollects how they met and how their lives intertwined. But as his leads dry up and the ash falls heavier, he realises that even his most basic assumptions – about Paris, his girlfriend, and himself – are overturned once darkness falls. 

GREY CATS is a picaresque descent into the belly of the Parisian night – a mischievously comic novel that explores the psychology and mythology of place, questions the fluid boundaries of consciousness, and ideas of identity, love, and lost direction. 

Against a backdrop including the illusive Commissaire; a gang of roller-skating urban guerrillas; an army of demonic marionettes; an underground swingers’ club and the blood-soaked Theatre-du-Grand-Guignol, unseen in Paris for half a century, we quickly come to understand the truth behind the old French expression: “At night, all cats are grey.”

This giveaway will run through February 8th. 
Winners will be announced here and via email on February 9th.

Here's how to enter:

1 - Leave a comment stating that you'd like to receive a copy of the book. 

2 - State that you agree to participate in the group read book discussion that will run from March 15th through the end of the month . Adam Biles has agreed to participate in the discussion and will be available to answer any questions you may have for him. 

 *If you are chosen as a winner, by accepting the copy you are agreeing to read the book and join the group discussion at TNBBC on Goodreads (the thread for the discussion will be emailed to you before the discussion begins). 

 3 - Your comment must have a way to contact you (email is preferred).
