Mods, I searched for a thread on this blog and didn't see anything -- feel free to move it if it's in the wrong place.

AWers like Pat Wood and John E. Robison have participated in Book Roast (http://bookroast.blogspot.com/), a blog where authors are featured on the last week of each month for trivia, prizes and fun.

Tomorrow is my turn to promote Bad Ice. (http://www.champagnebooks.com/books/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=13&products_id=191)

Here's an excerpt from the blog sidebar:

We slice and serve one author a day for fun and prizes and a good, old fashioned roasting. First, we whet your appetite with a short excerpt from the author's book, followed by three questions loosely related to the passage. Some questions are silly, others are straightforward and the rest are plain crunchy. For dessert, the author picks the winner who answers the most questions correctly or the most creatively. We like spice, but some authors prefer things sweet, which makes Book Roast deliciously unpredictable.

The prize: a free copy of the author's book (and an occasional surprise!)

Best of all, authors will pop into the blog throughout the day to answer questions, share a laugh and toss out some insider tidbits.

Sounds like fun. I'll stop by (if I can get away from the kids, that is.)
