Join me for the ‘Little Things Blog Hop’

Welcome to Mr Valentine‘s pad, the home of science fiction with humor and romance.

Thanks for joining the Little Things Blog Hop. Visit each stop to enter the posted giveaway — and enter a drawing for some great prizes, including a $50 Amazon gift card. More on those prizes in a minute. First, though, let me tell you what you can win right here and now.

  • Raise your foot if you’ve seen the classic movie The African Queen? Great, that’s almost all of you.
  • Now raise your elbow if you loved the movie’s adventure and the romance between Humphrey Bogart and Katherine Hepburn. Excellent!

Lucky you — because by visiting this blog, you can recapture African Queen’s excitement and romance.  If you loved the movie, you’ll love my upcoming science fiction romance, Escapee — The African Queen in Outer Space. Even if  you don’t read science fiction, you’ll love this book.

escapee smaller

Catt Sayer, an abused peasant and a fugitive from justice on her home planet, makes a meager living flying a decrepit airship that delivers supplies to scattered military bases on an isolated, inhospitable moon.

When enemies invade the moon and destroy the bases, Catt rescues the lone survivor—Captain Hank Dukelsky, an upper-class army captain.

But Hank wants her to risk her life on an impossible quest to attack the enemy headquarters … and Catt is falling in love with both the man and his magnificently quixotic ambition.

Note that Escapee doesn’t escape the publisher’s clutches until April 19, 2016. Can’t wait? Read chapter one.

Want it. Love it. Gotta have it. But how?

Simplicity itself. Just leave a comment.

That’s it. Everyone who leaves a comment agreeing to join my infrequent mailing list (sent out twice last year) will get a copy of Escapee when it’s released. Yep, everyone. Not some of you. Everyone.

I’ll be in touch with you soon after the Little Things Blog Hop ends on April 1.

Okay, I’ve left a comment. What next?

From here, continue on to the next Little Thing, hosted by Linda O’Connor.

Join the Little Things Blog Hop Event for more fun and yet another giveaway.

What about the prizes? You mentioned prizes, Mr Valentine!

See what else is being given away and sign up to win a $50 Amazon gift card (among other great prizes)!

Winner (s) will be chosen by Mr. Random and announced on this page and on the Little Things Event Page by April 6th. Note that Facebook is not in any way responsible or affiliated with this giveaway or the Little Things Blog Hop.
