Interview With Kyria Abrahams, Author Of “I’m Perfect, You’re Doomed.”

I'm Perfect book coverI recently finished reading Kyria Abrahams book, I’m Perfect, You’re Doomed: Tales from a Jehovah’s Witness Upbringing. Since I’ve used its cover image several times on my web site, actually reading it seemed fair. Here’s the thing I should have guessed from the cover: I’m Perfect, You’re Doomed isn’t a hate fueled rant or a whoa-is-me sob story. It’s a memoir that’s actually funny!

Merry Christmas 2011 And A Few Freebies, Too

Even now, as an ex-Jehovah’s Witness, I really don’t celebrate Christmas. I probably would if my wife did, but she remains a Jehovah’s Witness herself. Also, I’m evil. Still, I can offer my fellow book geeks a couple of goodies.

Mur Lafferty's profile photoFirst, we have 12 Days of Christmas Stories! from Mur Lafferty at Escapepod. If you like audiobooks (I listen to them while exercising, walking, washing the dishes, etc.) you might want to give these a try.

Magic GiftsI’m also a fan of Ilona Andrews, especially her Kate Daniels novels. Turns out she is offering her latest novella about Kate FOR FREE. But only for a short while. You can download Magic Gifts for a limited time from her website. It comes in Kindle, epub, and PDF formats.

That’s all I got for now.

Merry Christmas!
