See’s Candies is FOOLISHLY giving away, not only daily gift certificates, but a “life time supply of See’s Candies” as the grand prize. Uhm. Do they have any idea just how much chocolate I consume???? The giveaway is on the front page in blue.

I know, I know. It’s not precisely the time to start gardening…unless you’re me and live in Texas and can start things indoors. On my cozy forum we got to talking tomatoes and I wanted to post (again) a great place to exchange and receive seeds. It will cost you the huge price of about 3 stamps. You send a SASE (self-addressed stamped envelope with 2 STAMPS) and a list of a few varieties you’d like to try. They send seeds. Simple. I’ve done it before and it’s a great way to try some interesting varieties. The website where you can peruse the seeds they have this year is wintersown. Some seed varieties require a donation. (They advise sending a check, but slipping a buck or two in the envelope might work too…)

Sadly this year they don’t have Italia Viva or Amish Paste, two of my favorite canning and sauce tomatoes. Well, I’ll just have to grow something new…

Full Cast Audio does just what the name says–brings a book to life by giving it a full cast and recording the story. They are doing a week-long sale on many of their books that include some middle school, young adult, true stories (This one looked particularly interesting.) Christmas stories, fantasy, and adventures. These are library editions, so they are high quality in durable packaging.

Check them out for an extra special present for Christmas!

ratThis one also caught my eye: Space Station Rat

There’s not much true science fiction available for the intermediate grades, so we were delighted to find this terrific outer space adventure. Though it is humorous and exciting, it takes its science quite seriously, as amy good SF novel should.This is a solo read, provided by our own Dan Bostick, who was named one of the five best voices in Children’s Audio last year by AudioFile Magazine.

As y’all know I’m very interested in art, both because it’s beautiful and also because I’ve started doing book covers. Boy, is there a lot to learn! At any rate, apparently, unbeknownst to me, there’s been a argument going on for years about whether Vermeer was really a genius in creating photo-realistic art…or whether he cheated! Cheated, you say? How could he do that? Well, one man took it upon himself to see if cheating was possible in this fascinating article at Vanity Fair.

soul_front_flatname_25 You can now purchase copies of Soul of the Desert in the BearMountainBooks.com store! The bundle contains both an ePUB AND a mobi file. Mail the file to your Kindle or sideload to your Kindle or ePUB reader!

As with my previous releases, I am pricing the book at $2.99 for the first few days. After the sale, it will be priced at $4.99.

You can also pre-order Soul of the Desert from Kobobooks for the sale price of $2.99. The official release date is December 3 at all other outlets!!

Soul of the Desert was short listed in the Debut Dagger competition in 2003. It is a story about an adopted child on the run determined to survive against impossible odds.

Book Description

In 1976, the best a black kid in Harlem can hope for is to work for the mob or pick up extra bucks as an informer. Rand’s choices are a quick bullet or a long, tortured punishment with death hanging off the end. The only oblivion is the drugs; Rand can either sell them, take them or both. It may be too late for Rand, but that won’t stop him from trying to save his baby brother, Bo. So when strangers appear on the streets of Harlem, Rand hatches a crazy plan to use them to save Bo from a similar fate. Rand must send Bo to a place that is so desolate and removed from Harlem that no one will dare follow him. Once there, all Bo has to do is find a way to stay alive.

Some Amazon deals for Monday can be found here. I noticed this year that if you are giving an all-popular gift card to Amazon, you can have it delivered is a very nice box–so it goes under the tree and doesn’t even need to be wrapped! Cute.

colddaysEdited to add: Eagle-eyed shopper Dee wrote in with this great bargain: The latest Harry Dresden, Cold Days, for $2.49!!! THAT’S a steal!


Let us know what you’re finding and where. So far, for me, chocolate is still the hands-down winner!
