Spotlight Post: The Starving Years by Jordan C Price

Psst! Today’s Spotlight features one of my most favorite Urban Fantasy Authors doing what she does best: giving you awesome books…for free! That’s right FOR FREE. But let me break it down for you:

Who: macabre Queen of Urban Fantasy, Jordan C Price!

What: The Starving Years, her MMM Dystopian Romance:

starving yearsImagine a world without hunger.

In 1960, a superfood was invented that made starvation a thing of the past. Manna, the cheaply manufactured staple food, is now as ubiquitous as salt in the world’s cupboards, pantries and larders.

Nelson Oliver knows plenty about manna. He’s a food scientist—according to his diploma, that is. Lately, he’s been running the register at the local video rental dive to scrape together the cash for his outrageously priced migraine medication.

In a job fair gone bad, Nelson hooks up with copywriter Javier and his computer-geek pal Tim, who whisks them away from the worst of the fiasco in his repurposed moving truck. At least, Nelson thinks those two are acquainted, but they’re acting so evasive about it, he’s not sure how they know each other, exactly. Javier is impervious to Nelson’s flirting, and Tim’s name could appear in the dictionary under the entry for “awkward.” And with a riot raging through Manhattan and yet another headache coming on, it doesn’t seem like Nelson will get an answer anytime soon.

One thing’s for sure, the tension between the three of them is thick enough to cut with a knife…even one of those dull plastic dealies that come in the package with Mannariffic EZ-Mealz.

When: now through April 8th

Where: Amazon

How: Do you read in Mobi? Or are you a Kindle Unlimited user? Yes? No? Get on it…now! For a limited time, JCP’s groundbreaking book, The Starving Years, will be free for Kindle and Kindle Unlimited. Get it, devour it, and then go on to read all of her amazing urban fantasy reads and then demand why you never did it before!

Contest time: Signed ARC of Origin by Jessica Khoury

Get ready to pinch yourselves because in my hot little hands is a signed Advanced Readers Copy of Origin by Jessica Khoury! Yes, one of the most anticipated releases of the Fall! I can’t wait to hunker down and begin reading it, especially after all the hype about–Wait, you didn’t think it was for you, did you? Because I mean, we got this after waiting in a hellaciously long line at Book Expo 2012 during which we endured death stares, dehydration, and moody expo goers until it was finally our turn to speak with the author so I mean, we couldn’t possibly part with it. Not even if you begged and pleaded…

BTW, I’m kidding! This book is totally for you! One lucky winner is in for a treat when he/she walks away with a signed ARC of Origin by Jessica Khoury.

Mainly because I will have just arrived home from Paris and will want to sleep in. Believe me.)

Good luck!
