Item Name & Description: an advance reading copy of Day Shift by Charlaine Harris (forthcoming, May 5, 2015). Donated by Ace and Roc Books.
This is the sequel to Midnight Crossroad.
There is no such thing as bad publicity, except in Midnight, Texas, where the residents like to keep to themselves. Even in a town full of secretive people, Olivia Charity is an enigma. She lives with the vampire Lemuel, but no one knows what she does; they only know that she’s beautiful and dangerous.
Psychic Manfred Bernardo finds out just how dangerous when he goes on a working weekend to Dallas and sees Olivia there with a couple who are both found dead the next day. To make matters worse, one of Manfred’s regular—and very wealthy—clients dies during a reading.
Manfred returns from Dallas embroiled in scandal and hounded by the press. He turns to Olivia for help; somehow he knows that the mysterious Olivia can get things back to normal. As normal as things get in Midnight…
Starting Bid: $10.
Notes: Donated by Ace and Roc Books, but being shipped by the poster, and therefore for shipping outside North America, I may ask for an additional donation; please let me know if you’d like me to estimate that for you.
In addition, I feel obligated to tell you that that the auction ends until May 3, and thus when you factor in shipping time, you won’t get this before the hardcover is released on May 5 (unless you happen to live near Albany, NY and can come get it in person on the 4th).
Bidding opens Monday, April 20, 2015 at 12:01 a.m. Eastern (time zone conversions). It closes Sunday, May 3, 2015 at 4:00 p.m. (time zone conversions, countdown) unless bids are received in the last ten minutes (learn more).
