Update: the raffle has ended and the winners have been notified. Thanks for participating!

On Friday, December 18th at 10am EST (The raffle has ended) I’ll be raffling off five copies of the King of Shards Audible.com audiobook and two copies of the book’s Advance Reading Copies (ARCs). King of Shards is an epic fantasy novel about a Lamed Vavnik, one of the thirty-six anonymous saints who uphold the world, who must team up with Ashmedai, the king of demon-kind, in order to prevent a cadre of demons from killing the other Lamed Vav and destroying the world. Raffle rules are below.

NPR Books called King of Shards, “Majestic, resonant, reality-twisting madness.” Author N.K. Jemisin calls King of Shards, “A surreal and exotic adventure in a unique mythological setting. Scary, exhilarating fun!”
