So how about we do this again on Oct 8th? I had a lot of fun with it and I'm hoping others feel the same.
I'm going to just keep on doing these so if you know anyone that would be interested, feel free to send them this way!
This has been so much fun! You guys rock! I'll put these in order of when I received them. For some authors this is the second book in the series that they started on Joe Konrath's blog and were winners on his site. I'm listing their 1st book under their newest one in the series. If there are any mistakes, please let me know.
Design by the Sea(sweet gay romance), by Hollis Shiloh Rudy is excited to be working for his old friend, the shy, bewildered, terminally handsome Wes, who's inherited a bunch of antiques and a mandate to turn a mansion overlooking the sea into a museum housing them. As an interior designer, Rudy is confident he can help. But he doesn't expect the trouble that comes from a possibly-cursed crown, a jealous Roman antiquities expert... or the possibility of falling in love. A 14,700 word contemporary gay romance. Heat level is sweet.
Robert had just been let go from his supervisor role at a tech firm. After an interview at Geek Tech, Inc., he agrees to a one-time test run to see if he'll like the job, since the entire situation seems a bit shady and his predecessor was killed on the job. He needs the money with a new wife and a baby on the way. Come along for the journey as he fixes computers and technology in a world of goblins, dwarves, elves, trolls, orcs, and talking horses. Robert's journey is good for a few laughs and will get you thinking, whether you're a full-fledged geek or just a geek-in-training.
Half-faeries Reveille and Jamison have a tall order to fill and precious little time. The agency has sent them to a swinger convention to procure venom from a merewif. With the ability to gauge demonic ancestry through having sex with prospective targets, both partners are on the prowl.
But the information about recognizing this elusive merewif is scant, and the convention is swarming with potential demons. Are they going to make their deadline or is this going to be the first case they can’t bring to a successful climax?
He's handsome, stacked, rich, and sexy . . . but is he a demon?
When the agency sends out its two best procurers to retrieve a moscalo demon, Reveille and Jamison have no idea that Lachlan Baughan is going to be anything but a routine gig. Both half-faeries, they can only determine ancestry by having sex with their targets.
But things don't go quite as planned. Is Reveille playing Lachlan for the spell she needs, or is Lachlan playing her?

Will Hunter and the team detect clues that can be used to capture and convict any foul play actors? You will learn how this is done.
I have started this 8 hour ebook challenge like he did on his site. Everybody is welcome! I hope with Joe's inspiration we can get fellow authors to join in and give it a try. I will be doing this every month, maybe more often if anyone is interested.
The first round of this challenge will be due by Sept. 9th, 2013 and I will post them on Sept. 10th, 2013. If you'd like to see how Joe Konrath did it, go to his link http://jakonrath.blogspot.com/search?updated-max=2013-08-30T14:20:00-05:00&max-results=10
The same rules will apply as on Joe's site: 1. Email me the header 8 HOUR WINNER in all capital letters. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org 2. In the email include the Amazon link, a five sentence book description, and the price 3. Attach a jpg of the cover art. 4. Do this by midnight, Sept. 9th On Sept. 10th I will post a blog featuring everyone who followed the above instructions. You might consider making your ebook free on that date in KDP Select, because the more freebies there are, the more traffic the post will get, and the more downloads you'll get. We can keep track of sales by you letting me know how your book is doing if you'd like. Thank you Joe Konrath for your blessings on this project! I hope I get interested authors out there!
