Fall giveaway event!

You've heard of spring cleaning, right? Well, Lucinda and I took a look around our respective offices and overflowing home bookshelves and decided a fall cleaning was definitely in order. The good news for you? We've got dozens of ARCs, both old and new, that we have to give up (unless we want to be buried beneath our TBRs, which are beginning to resemble the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Or, at least mine is!). Anyway, here are the prepub books that we can't wait to pass over to your hot little hands! We think there's a little something for everyone.
