August's BintoM Monthly Giveaway (#7)

Time for the BintoM Monthly Giveaway meme began, and hosted, by me! =)  I began this because I know I have a habit of comparing books to movies, and vice versa, when a movie is based on a book. 

*I am thinking about having a BintoM blog hop one month.  If you are interested in participating, please email me at:

Here are the particulars for this month's giveaway:
  • Towards the end of the month, I will post the next month's giveaway. 
  • I will leave it open for 2 to 3 weeks.  At that time, a winner (or winners, if I'm feeling generous) will be chosen and notified. 
  • I will expect the winner to acknowledge the winning email within 48 hours or another winner will be chosen in their place. 
  • This is now open internationally
  • You do not need to be a GFC follower to win.  Yes, I would like it if you followed me, but I am not making that a stipulation to participate or to win.

August's BintoM Giveaway (ending August 7th) prize pack will consist of:
The Quick and the Dead book/movie combo

Here's a little bit about both:

I have a brand new paperback copy of The Quick and the Dead written by Louis L'Amour that I bought from Books-A-Million.

Summary:  When Duncan McKaskel decided to move his family west, he knew he would face dangers, and he was prepared for them.  He knew about the exhausting terrain, and he was expecting the punishing elements.  What he worried about was having to use violence against other men - men who would follow him and try to steal the riches that he didn't even possess.

Yet bandits were only part of McKaskel's worries.  For a mysterious stranger, Con Vallian, had appeared one night and saved his life.  But was Vallian's true interest Duncan's wife, Susanna?  And, more important, how did she feel about him?

As they push into the wilderness, Duncan must discover who is the greater threat - the thieves outside his camp or the enigmatic stranger within ...

To go along with the book, I have a brand new copy of The Quick and the Dead, the movie:

Blurb:  In 1876 Wyoming, the gun is the only law.  And for Duncan and Susanna McKaskel, newly arrived settlers beset by outlaws, rugged frontiersman Con Vallian is the only hope.

  2. OMG! OMG! I gotta have this. Sam Elliott is the man, the total package, I love his movies.
