Penguicon Smashwords Celebration and Another CONVERGENCE Giveaway!

Penguicon kicks off this weekend, running May 2-4, 2014 at the Westin in Southfield, MI. For those not keyed in, Penguicon is a big celebration of geekiness and nerd interests, ranging from science fiction to Open Source coding and DIY projects. You can read more about it over at their site. Unfortunately, as a life-long Michigander with a strong geek side, I have never attended Penguicon. And, alas, I will not be in attendance for this year's convention, either, since it falls on the weekend of my fourth wedding anniversary. But, I'm making up for it!

Since my novel, CONVERGENCE, fits comfortably in the wheelhouse of Penguicon I thought it appropriate to offer up a minor celebration to show my appreciation. I'm doing this in two ways.

First up, is a Smashwords coupon for 50% off. Buy through that outlet, and you can get the .epub edition of my book for $1.99 for a limited time. Feel free to share this code and help spread the word!

Prior to completing your check-out at Smashwords, enter the code AV28S. This code is good until Wed., May 7, 2014, so act fast.

Please note that this coupon is only good through the Smashwords website. If you prefer a different vendor (or .mobi for Kindle), you can still buy eBook editions for Kindle, Nook, and Kobo, or through the iBookstore, for the always-low regular price of $3.99. Print copies are also available through Amazon for less than $13 if you prefer the physical copy.

Secondly, I'm also offering up 10 copies of CONVERGENCE for free through a LibraryThing giveaway contest over here until May 23.

If you decide to take advantage of the Smashwords coupon code, or win a copy through LibraryThing, please consider leaving a review at these sites, or at Goodreads and/or your etailer of choice.
