Congratulations to Bill and Dawn...April sweepstakes winners of signed ARCs of my new book SHADOW OF BETRAYAL.

I'll start up the May sweepstakes in a week or so. But note that if you've already entered for April, you're automatically entered for May and June!

Thanks everybody, and congratulations again to Bill and Dawn.

Sweepstakes and Reviews

I just received the ARCs (Advanced Reader Copies) of my new book, SHADOW OF BETRAYAL (release date July 18th). So you know what that means! Sweepstakes time!!!

But before I get to that, if you are a blogger who reviews Thrillers email me your name and address, and include a link to your blog. I won't be able to send to everyone, so if I can't get you a copy, I apologize. Send to contest at brettbattles dot com. And please put "Review Copy Request" in the subject line.

Okay on to the contest. Like last year, there will be one drawing per month. If you don't win, your name will be carried on to the next sweepstakes. The only change this year is that I will be pulling TWO winners each month through June. In July, I will have a sweepstakes for a first edition hardcover. (Please note, if you do enter the contest, I will be adding you to my mailing list. Now, don't worry. I don't give this list to ANYONE else, and I only send out a few newsletters a year, so you won't be bombarded. Still, if you'd rather I didn't include you, just say so in the body of your message.)

Okay, here's all you have to do. Email me at contest at brettbattles dot com, and write in the subject line Shadow Sweepstakes, or, if you prefer SOB Sweepstakes...I won't take offense. In the message, just give me your name. If you win, I'll ask you to send me your address. That's it!

So, let's see...we'll make the end of the April sweepstakes April 28th at 6:00 p.m. Pacific Time (that's Los Angeles time for those not familiar).

Let's get those entries in!
