Another Book Giveaway

Again a big thank you goes out to Hachette for hosting this contest. There will be 5 lucky winners. You have probably heard the name Dan Simmons and if not that is ok too.

He is the author of The Terror and the most recent novel Drood.




The men on board HMS Terror have every expectation of finding the Northwest Passage. When the expedition's leader, Sir John Franklin, meets a terrible death, Captain Francis Crozier takes command and leads his surviving crewmen on a last, desperate attempt to flee south across the ice.

But as another winter approaches, as scurvy and starvation grow more terrible, and as the Terror on the ice stalks them southward, Crozier and his men begin to fear there is no escape.

A haunting, gripping story based on actual historical events, The Terror is a novel that will chill you to your core.


You know the drill. Open to US and Canada only and no PO Boxes. Must leave a email addy. Thanks

Leave a comment for 1 entry

Share with me another book with the words Terror or another author with the name Dan or Simmons. Every comment you leave will earn you 1 extra entry.

This contest ends Feb 27th

This sounds interesting. I like Dan Brown who not only wrote Da Vinci Code but also Ditigal Fortress, Deception Point and several other thrillers.
Also, Matthew Simmons wrote:
Twilight in the Desert: The Coming Saudi Oil Shock and the World Economy.
Another interesting book is Way of the Peaceful Warrior: A Book That Changes Lives by Dan Millman.
