A free download of Dead to the Max to EVERYONE!

The winner of a download of Burning Bridges from my wonderful friend Anne Krist is Phyllis. You’ve got a real prize here, Phyllis, you’re going to love Burning Bridges. So please email me at skully [at] skullybuzz [dot] com to claim your download. Since I don’t have your email address, please let me know within 24 hours.

This week, as promised, I’m doing something a little different. I’m giving away a pdf download of Dead to the Max by JB Skully. In case you didn’t know, that’s me! Yet another multiple. This is the first Max Starr book, and there’s five total in the series which you can get through LiquidSilverBooks. Look under "Titles by Author". You’ll find an excerpt over there, too. Now here’s the thing. I’m going to give a download to ANYONE who posts on the blog this week. All you must do is put your email address in the comment. I’ll add you to my newsletter if you’re not already a member, but also, this is the only way I can send Dead to the Max to you, by email, so if you don’t leave your address, I won’t be sending that free copy. If you’re worried about those web crawlie thingies that get your address, just type it in like I did my address in the first paragraph.

I love the Max Starr series, and I would love to introduce a new generation of e-book readers to Max and Witt and Cameron. As I was writing the series, I fell deeply in love with Witt. Max gets involved in a series of killings and Witt’s the detective who investigates her, tries to protect her, and falls for her. Okay, I fell in love with Witt’s mom, too. You know how I always talk about my mom, well, she’s a lot like Witt’s mom. Of course, there’s Cameron, too, Max’s husband. Cameron is the man of Max’s dreams, but there’s one small problem, he was murdered a couple of years ago. Max still talks to him. And he talks back. He’s the ghost that just can’t go to his final rest. And really, how can Max choose between the love of her life and the man of her dreams?

So, leave a comment and your email and give Max a try!

I also promised some news about Show and Tell! My local radio station is going to read Show and Tell aloud on the air! Yes, the whole thing!!!! Okay, they’re going to have to do some bleeping, but every day at 6:35 am, they’re going to read a minute of it. Every day for about 3 months! Wow.

And for those of you who are writers, the Silicon Valley chapter of RWA is having the GotchaContest. Finalists go to editors! Dead to the Max won the Gotcha way back when!

Rita said...

You have SO many awesome things going on right now!! Unlaced and Fair Game coming out soon, Show & Tell on the radio...OMG, Jennifer! That's a lot of crazy schnit...

Please send me Dead to the Max. I love all your wild personalities.

Jennifer Skully/Jasmine Haynes said...

Thanks to all of you for stopping by. I love ya, man, for all the support. And I hope you love Max. Okay, off to send some more!


Jennifer McKenzie said...

WOW!!! They're going to read that out loud?
I wonder how they're going to read that scene where they leave the bar and........there's going to be some HAPPY commuters at 7am.

Caitlin Hoy said...

Oooohhhhh! Yay! I would love to read this series. I haven't read anything under this name but I love your other work under your other names. Thank you for the free book.

Dena said...

Hi Jas, It's very thoughtful of you to give us a free book. I can't wait to read it! Have a great week and thanks!

Unknown said...

Hi, Jasmine. I've only read your Jasmine Haynes titles, so this will be a nice treat. Thanks!


Jennifer Skully/Jasmine Haynes said...

Jennifer, I can't imagine how they're going to read that scene after Trinity and Scott are in the bar. Um, what sound effect could they possibly use for...that? LOL. The only one I know is that they'll use the sound of spanking for the spanking scene, which really isn't BDSM, just a bit of hot fun. Listening to them read will be an experience!

And thanks everyone! I'm off to send out the next batch of Dead to the Max!

I must have missed this series while I was busy with your's and Jennifer's books. Dead to the Max sounds wonderful!


Dale said...


Thank you for inviting me to post. I met you at RAW and thought you were a wonderful person to go along with being a great author. My sister and I were the ones who ran into the signing room yelling for you! I haven't read anything by you under this name but I love your other books and look forward to this one.
