DO YOU HAVE YOUR ECLIPSE GLASSES?






No? Would you like a couple pair of them? Comment here to win them! But wait, there’s more!

If you win the glasses, you will also win a copy of DAY OF THE DARK: Stories of Eclipse, from Wildside Press. This is a stellar (well, solar and lunar anyway) volume of 24 short stories, ranging from light to dark and falling across several genres as the shadow of the moon falls across the country. Something for everyone, just like the eclipse will hit everyone on the continental United States.

Some of you will experience the total solar eclipse, some of you only 90%, but that’s worth a trip outside, too, if it’s not raining where you live.

The date I’ll pick a winner is August 5th, midnight Eastern Time. I want to be able to mail the loot out to get there in time for the event! The date of the eclipse is August 21st. I HOPE we have clear skies for it, and hope you do, too!

Pick me! Pick me! I love anthologies. I love winning things. And I love you, Kaye George. (Too much?) Okay, pick me randomly becauseI followed instructions and want to see the Eclipse and read the book.

Karen Busen said...

I want this book and need these glasses. I have several of Kaye's good books and want more. I would love to win this.

Congratulations, Kaye, on your clever idea to have a book of short stories featuring the eclipse. I look forward to reading it--and seeing the eclipse. I was just wondering where I could get a pair of glasses to view the eclipse.

cj Sez: Yay, Kaye! Sooo looking forward to seeing a piece of the eclipse (I don't live in the path), and would love to have the Day of the Dark anthology to read when the sun returns. Besides, August 5 is my sister's birthday! I'd be happy to accept the prize in her honor.

I have the book already, but maybe I could give a copy to Erin! It was a good read, mysteriously dark!! Thank you for your wonderful work, Kaye!
I definitely need the glasses!

Earl said...

This would be great! I'm supposed to get 88.8% where I am but am considering a short road trip for a better view, my friends who live in the path don't yet know they may have a visitor!

Would love to win for my husband. he loves eclipses.

Prentiss Garner said...

Hope to win!

Reine said...

I would love to win the glasses, so I can watch the eclipse!

And anthologies! I love to read them, but I have my own reading glasses for that. All I need is the book!

Eugenia Parrish said...

Hi Kaye! What great timing! Unfortunately I'm probably too far north to see much, but I'd love to read the book anyway.

Ann Maria Mattila said...

I'm just a 2 hour drive from totality. Even if I stay home, it will be between 80 & 90 percent, depending on who I ask.

Larry W. Chavis said...

We'll ave about 89% here. Looking forward to it, and the book.

Patricia Dusenbury said...

Enjoy the full eclipse - we'll only get a partial here in San Francisco, but we'll still need glasses, and I have two grandsons ... the book would be for me. It's a neat idea, and I wish I'd had a story to submit.

LD Masterson said...

I'm not in the path for a total but I'll sure be watching that partial.

Nicole Sours Larson said...

I'd love to have the glasses -- though we'll only get a partial eclipse in San Diego -- and I'd love to read your book, too!

What a great idea for a promo!

Carolyn Mulford said...

My library is giving out the glasses so I don't need those. People here have been talking about the eclipse for a year and a half. If we have rain, we'll have mass depression. I'd love to see the stories.

Cynthia Sample said...

I'm going to be in Seattle visiting my daughter so I'll have a 90% viewing. I would love to win the glasses and the book of course. Thanks for the opportunity.

Kaye George said...

WE HAVE A WINNER! Random.org picked Patricia Dusenbury. Patricia, please message me with the address where you want the book and glasses to be sent and I'll get them out on Monday.

THANKS, EVERYONE WHO COMMENTED HERE! I hope you all enjoy the eclipse.
