I'm so sorry I couldn't name all of you winners, and I really wish I could afford to send you each a copy for all the nice things you said, but I hope you'll consider picking up a copy of Bashed anyway.
Excerpt and ordering details are right here.
Thanks so much to everyone!
A lovers' kiss. One moment of wanton evil. And Donald Griffith's blissful world is changed forever.
Rick R. Reed has long been celebrated for taking his readers to the places where the dark things dwell, but this exemplary piece of fiction goes well beyond the conventions of genre. To be sure, there is plenty of seat-of-the-pants suspense, the kind that has you biting your nails and won't let you stop turning pages; but the author has far more in mind here than mere chills and goosebumps: he offers the reader nothing less than a stunning treatise on love, and loss and, ultimately, redemption.
This is a book you will savor long after you've read the last page.
