Launch Date for The Martini of Destiny + This Week’s Free Book Giveaway [NOW CLOSED]

Thanks for entering! This week’s giveaway is now closed. Next Free E-book Giveaway starts Tuesday, May 28, at 5 a.m. PT

A special martini gives courage to a doubting man, a ghost doesn’t pay for his pints, a destiny-slinging bartender questions everything, and the world will never be the same…

The Martini of Destiny, by Anthony St. ClairIt’s been a helluva journey and lots of work (and to think, this is only the first!). But it’s close.

The Martini of Destiny, the first e-book in the Rucksack Universe of travel fiction, will be available worldwide on Thursday, June 20, 2013.

In the meantime, behind the scenes I’ll be getting things ready to launch. Over these next few weeks I’ll also be talking with you about the story itself: the characters, the similar-but-different world of the Rucksack Universe, and some of the process to make the story come alive. The Martini of Destiny isn’t just a novella, after all. It’s an introduction to a new world of urban fantasy and travel fiction.

Come June 20, you’ll be able to get your copy wherever e-books are sold.

But in the meantime you can also take a crack at winning a free copy.

  1. So super excited for this and for you!

  2. Carol says:

    Never had a Martini before and that is all the students at UNM talked about when I returned a few years ago, I had mentioned this to a server at a wonderful Italian restaurant in Palm Springs. He immediately brought our party of 6 Martinis. They were all my favorite but I think I liked the chocolate one for dessert best!

  3. I’m not really a martini drinker. Chances are, if I had one now, it would be in a plastic cup, with an olive made of play doh, skewered with a popsicle stick. Very dry. As in, nothing but air. Life with kids.

    But I do like craft beer.

  4. Taylor says:

    Hmmm… Fairly dry. The olive is the best part. I’m not a huge martini fan, but I have a strange affection for them from years of watching M*A*S*H as a kid.

  5. praj says:

    I’m delighted. And I love a vodka martini with Hard Times. They’re delicious.

  6. VTfiddle says:

    Why, a traditional Dirty is the only way to have it of course! Gin, not vodka. A splash of olive juice. And quality bitters are a must.

  7. fyberella says:

    so wonderful, Anthony you are the best!

  8. don’t really drink that much anymore because martinis left me shaken and often slurred but if I had a recipe, it would be with something bonded.

  9. Carol Campbell says:

    Jim’s favorite was the appletini.
