WERegal Literary has resolved to give away more books than ever in 2012 so they’re giving away a copy of Josh Bazellâ€™s forthcoming WILD THING, his sequel to 2009â€™s BEAT THE REAPER. (As a bonus, theyâ€™re also giving away a few copies of BEAT THE REAPER, in case you missed out on how it all began!) The giveaway is open until February 8th on their site at http://www.regal-literary.com/contests/wildthing/.
Dr. Pietro Brnwa is on the run from the mob he used to kill for. With a new name and a new job thatâ€™s tolerable only because it keeps him alive, heâ€™s looking for a way to hurt the mob so badly that it will leave him alone forever.
Dr. Violet Hurst is a sexy and self-destructive paleontologist in the employ of a reclusive billionaire whose obsession with an urban legend living in the woods of Minnesota canâ€™t possibly be justified. Or can it?
The offer of a job protecting Violet could be just the opportunity Pietroâ€™s been looking for. It could also be a hellish morass of murder, corruption, insanity, and international drug smuggling, not to mention the occasional lake monster. But what are the odds of that?
Things are about to get wild.
â€œItâ€™s so rare that you see a really brilliant writer who is committed, 100%, in every sentence, to giving you a good time. Bazell is, and he does.â€ â€“ Lev Grossman, Time
I’m on their mailing list because I’ve tried to win some of their giveaways and thought I’d pass this one along.
