[quote=""Carla""]Trifolium Books will be holding a 24-hour giveaway for the e-book edition of Moon In Leo by Kathleen Herbert on 29 June. This is the anniversary of the day when Kathleen, debilitated from a stroke and unable to complete the final edit of Moon In Leo, gave the draft of the book to Connie Jensen in two carrier bags. Connie and Mike Jensen at Trifolium Books edited the draft into final form, and then published it in print and e-book.

Giveaway open to anyone on the planet - Connie will post a coupon code on the Trifolium Books blog, and you will then have 24 hours to download the e-book in the format of your choice (for Kindle, iPad, various others) free of charge.

Edited to add: and while you're there, you might like to have a look at Connie's charming little short story for children, Farmer Ted's Easy Day, available free of charge all the time.[/quote]

Giveaway of Moon In Leo now open, for today (29 June) only. Instructions and code on the Trifolium website here.

Only for US readers though. :( As is You, by Joanna Briscoe, which also looks good.
