Just like we did in June with Skate the Thief, we’re holding a drawing for a free signed paperback copy of The Cosmic Turkey. Click Read More to see the details for this giveaway.
UPDATE: The raffle has been delayed till October/November due to the current unavailability of the "sweet surprise." Don't worry; it'll be worth the wait! Stay tuned for details here.
The Cosmic Turkey by Laura Ruth Loomis is a sci-fi comedy perfect for fans of Douglas Adams or Catherynne Valente. It’ll have you roaring with laughter . . . and very likely craving chocolate and/or coffee, so have some available while reading. You can’t say we didn’t warn you. ;)
Here's the book's short summary:
After she accidentally smashes a floatcar through City Hall, the bureautopia sentences Janet to captaining the starship S.S. Turkey and its misfit crew. Her mission: to boldly rescue a prisoner from the one corner of the universe colder than her ex-boyfriend’s heart—Pluto. Which, aside from not even being a real planet, is the one place in the universe where chocolate is illegal.
In between studying The Space-Faring Moron’s Guide to Common Science Fiction Plot Devices, falling for a rival captain’s boyfriend, and avoiding unnecessary time travel, Janet has a chance to save two worlds . . . or doom them to permanent chocolatelessness.
You can read a book review here, an author interview here, and a character interview here.
In honor of Turkey's publication, author Laura Loomis—after sanitizing all materials involved!—will be signing and giving away a paperback copy of her book. She’s also got another tasty little surprise to include, which we won’t spoil just yet. The winner will be chosen at random using Rafflecopter. To qualify* to win the drawing:
1) Purchase the e-book of The Cosmic Turkey (or leave a review of it if you don't have purchase proof available), then
2) Take a picture or screen shot of either the purchase receipt or the review, and then
3) Share it on any of your social media and tag Laura and/or Thinklings Books.
Here's the link to enter the giveaway. The winner will be notified when Laura does the drawing on Saturday, September 12th. Specific time and other details are TBA, so keep an eye on our blog and social media, or Laura’s.
We're looking forward to this fun event! We hope you are staying safe.
