Who’s a badass? Hutch is a badass. In my inbox today, a note from podnovelist extraordinaire J.C. Hutchins, who, aside from allowing us to post links to the free-for-listening audio of his novel,7Th Son, The Descent, is also a guest blogger on Tor.com:
I recently coordinated and created a free “holiday sampler” PDF featuring excerpts from 12 authors, designed to expose their books to new readers. SFF is proudly represented throughout....
A quick look at the page for In the Nick of Time, the aforementioned holiday sampler, and it’s clear what a fantastic idea this is:
Books make terrific holiday gifts, but finding perfect books for friends and family can be a time-consuming challenge. If only if the bookstore could come to us. That’s the idea behind this In the Nick of Time! holiday sampler PDF. Inside are excerpts from a dozen new novels and nonfiction books by these New York Times-bestselling authors, successful entrepreneurs, and wickedly talented storytellers:
Laurell K. Hamilton — Divine Misdemeanors
Seth Godin — Tribes and an exclusive excerpt of Linchpin, out next year
Joseph Finder — Vanished
Cory Doctorow — Makers
Chris Brogan & Julien Smith — Trust Agents
Robert J. Sawyer — Wake
Mitch Joel – Six Pixels of Separation
Cherie Priest — Boneshaker
Tara Hunt — The Whuffie Factor
Scott Sigler — The Rookie
Seth Harwood — Jack Wakes Up
J.C. Hutchins — 7th Son: Descent
Now that’s a formidable list of both SF/F and non-genre works. Go check it out, and happy downloadings!
