Book Giveaway: The Hum and the Shiver by Alex Bledsoe

Courtesy of the kind folks at TOR Books and PR by the Book, I have an extra copy of Alex Bledsoe‘s recent release The Hum and the Shiver to give away to one lucky reader.

Unfortunately, because of my limited shipping budget, I can only offer this to United States residents… But all you have to do is leave a comment below and I’ll contact the winner via e-mail on October 14, 2011!

Check out the interview with Bledsoe and my review of the book to see if it might tickle your fancy. I think it’s one of the more creative, lyrical urban fantasies I’ve read in a while!

Book Giveaway: The Free Market Capitalist’s Survival Guide by Jerry Bowyer

Time for another giveaway from our friends at Harper Collins!

The Free Market Capitalist’s Survival Guide: How To Invest and Thrive in an Era of Rampant Socialism by Jerry Bower offers some alternative advice on how to make the best of today’s uncertain financial times. Though I don’t agree that Obama and “the Left” are to blame for our financial woes, I suspect that there is some sound investing advice throughout the book if you look past the political rhetoric.

Unfortunately, because of my limited shipping budget, I can only offer this to United States residents… But all you have to do is leave a comment below and I’ll contact the winner via e-mail on February 18, 2011.

Good luck!

Here are some details from the press release:

Bowyer’s Rules for prospering in an anti-wealth environment include:

  1. Leftism won’t work: don’t invest in it
  2. Don’t invest in specific industries that politicians are focused on
  3. Invest in solutions to leftism
  4. Invest in alternatives to the institutions destroyed by the left
  5. When the government hates things that are big, be small
  6. When the government trashes contracts, invest in people who don’t need them
  7. Find cities of refuge

Likened to Rich Dad, Poor Dad – but for political conservatives — The Free Market Capitalist’s Survival Guide gives advice for anyone concerned about creating and preserving wealth in the most anti-wealth and anti-business period in America in over 30 years.

Jerry Bowyer is the founder of Bowyer Media which prodcues radio and television programs, and has been quoted by and/or written for The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, Washington Post and the International Herald Tribune. He has written columns for National Review Online, Human Events, Townhall.com, TechCentralStation, Townhall Magazine, and Forbes.com.
