When last we heard from our ever-verbose host of Off the Fang, she was ranting and raving about kick-ass series that died too young. This week, she’s decided to step it up a notch and do something about the situation.
Clearly, she is insane, for not only is she NOT rich, but she’s referring to herself in the third person. May the orderlies at the insane asylum be well-muscled and surly…
Okay, kids. Listen up. It’s time to take advantage of my insanity before the aforementioned yummy men in white take me away. Hey, I’ve seen Sucker Punch. I know what goes on in there! ::gulp:: I’m done with sitting back and watching fabulous authors get treated this way. When Mark Henry first announced the end of the Amanda Feral series, I stood up and helped. Why am I not doing something now that there’s not just one, but THREE authors in a similar situation?
Let’s review: In “Only the Good Die Young,” I mentioned Lynn Viehl, Mark Henry, and Sharon Ashwood. Lynn Viehl is safe. She’s an established author with no worries of publishing a new book/series/genre. The woman is untouchable. Mark’s situation is, unfortunately, a thing of the past. But Sharon — her plight is rather new, as is that of both Sonya Bateman and Carolyn Crane.
That’s right, people. Not only is Sharon’s series ending, but so are Sonya’s and Carolyn’s (Carolyn’s might continue in the e-world, but I’m not going to speak for her). That’s three of the most amazing, inventive, and captivating series I’ve read in a very long time. To quote a small, cartoon child: WHAT THE DEUCE??
Enough is enough. This is what we’re going to do: I’m giving away sets of each of these series, excluding the book you purchased unless you just really want two copies. Due to state laws, I can not force you to buy anything, so I’m adding a way for you to enter the contest free of charge, you cheap bastards. (Half kidding…)
