Special Giveaway: SIGNED copy of Ghost Story by Jim Butcher

A couple of weeks ago Jim Butcher came to Cambridge to do an author event at the Harvard Coop. It was a terrific. He was bright and funny as he answered questions that ranged from what he enjoyed most about writing Ghost Story to what else might lie in store for Chicago’s most…dead…private investigator wizard-for-hire.

The reading room was packed. I had expected a full house when I heard that Butcher was going to be in town. The picture below is of the reading room–about half an hour before Butcher arrived. By the time the event started, the room was wall to wall, standing room only.

While there, I purchased a copy Ghost Story by Jim Butcher to give away on Underwords.  Plus, I got it signed by the man himself. If you would like to win this special copy of Ghost Story, being signed by Butcher, please see below for the contest details.

Here’s an excerpt from my “creative” review of Ghost Story:

“Six months after his death, a source only known as “Bob” has placed Harry Dresden’s ghost as being in the company of the local ectomancer, Mortimer Lindquist, and several other shady characters of questionable natures. Another source claiming to be close to the late wizard verified that his spirit had unfinished business, which required him to track down his killer in order to save the people closest to him before moving on to his next phase of existence. However, Dresden’s investigation is rumored to be complicated by the appearance of a powerful and dangerous force in the spiritual realm that threatens to either wipe him from existence or force him into becoming a mindless wraith destined to haunt the highways and byways of Chicago’s afterlife.”

    Great giveaway, I love the Dresden Files!!!

  9. Jed says:

    I’ve actually picked up the first two Dresden Files books on your advice. I’m only three chapters into the first one, and I’m already hooked! Thanks for the great recommendation.

  10. Oh how I would love to win this book! Already have copies of the entire series but none are signed. Had to repurchase half of them because a flood destroyed the lower half of one of my bookcases. I posted the link on my twitter but since I only have 11 followers and I think most of them are bots so that really shouldn’t qualify me for a double entry.
