Enter to win an advanced reader’s galley of QUEEN OF THE DARK THINGS

It’s officially spring time, so let’s shake off our winter blues with an amazing giveaway. Five lucky winners will get an advanced reader’s copy of QUEEN OF THE DARK THINGS by C. Robert Cargill, the sequel to the acclaimed DREAMS AND SHADOWS! The book comes out on May 13.

Six months have passed since the events in DREAMS AND SHADOWS, when the wizard Colby lost his best friend to an army of fairies from the Limestone Kingdom, a realm of mystery and darkness beyond our own. But in vanquishing these creatures and banning them from Austin, Colby sacrificed the anonymity that protected him. Now, word of his deeds has spread, and powerful enemies from the past—including one Colby considered a friend—have resurfaced to exact their revenge. As darkness gathers around the city, Colby sifts through his memories desperate to find answers that might save him. With time running out, and few of his old allies and enemies willing to help, he is forced to turn for aid to forces even darker than those he once battled.

    “The Man from Mars” Has Landed

    Sci-Fi fans, hold onto your jet packs: Pulitzer-nominated author and composer David Menefee has teamed up with master musician Masanori to create “The Man from Mars,” the world’s first Mars One tribute song. The gut-wrenching three-minute mini-drama with Techno music embraces a cosmic set-up that rivals Star Wars.

    “It’s 2024. The Mars One mission. Count down. Blast off,” describes Menefee. “In seconds, I am alone in outer space, a pioneer from the human race on a one-way trip to the red planet. Suddenly, I can think of nothing but my greatest love, the girl I left behind . . . forever.”

    Menefee’s and Masanori’s “The Man from Mars” song explores love in outer space and what may happen when an astronaut blasts off on the upcoming one-way Mars One mission in 2024. “Love is the greatest thing in the world,” Menefee explains, “but when destiny calls, an astronaut has to be willing to leave behind the greatest love of his or her life. We’ve captured that mood and sentiment in a mesmerizing blend of music, lyrics, and sound effects that sets some people’s hair standing up. Who knows? The song may prove to be prophetic.”

    The second of their musical collaborations, “The Man from Mars” weaves wailing lead and harmony vocals with an ominous twenty-male background chorus entwined into a futuristic fugue that would make Steven Spielberg envious.

  2. This would be one of the best prizes I have ever received. ‘Dreams and ‘Shadows’ was a wonderfully haunting read. I have followed Cargill’s work for years, and I would love to get an early glimpse at what is sure to be a great follow up.

  3. Awesome! Dude’s come a long way from broadcasting podcasts from behind a liquor store off the I-35 interstate.

  4. Hey Cargill, massive fan of your film criticism from Spill.com and your screenwriting from “Sinister.” I definitely think as a screenwriter and storyteller myself it’d be very valuable for me to win this book and get a further insight into how you tell stories and develop characters. Feel free to send a free copy my way!

  5. I’m so excited to read this book. Dreams and Shadows had me hooked by page fifty. Can hardly wait to read the next book.
