The winner of the July Book Giveaway is…

July Japanagram book giveaway winner

If you recognize this email, congratulations!

 You just won a copy of Shinjū, by Laura Joh Rowland.

If this is you, shoot a message to and tell me where to send it, and I’ll have one sent from Amazon pronto! (Much to my chagrin, I discovered there’s no ebook edition, so I regret that I can’t offer you that option this month.)

How I pick the winner: I print out a list of all Japanagram subscribers, cut them apart, and literally pull one out of a hat. Naturally, I add the new names, dump them all out and scramble them around each month, so different ones are on top!

If I didn’t pull your name from the hat this time, you might still get lucky next month! In the July Japanagram, I’ll be giving away the first in a great mystery series set in samurai-era Japan. If you haven’t yet read these, I envy you! See why, in this month’s Book Review & Giveaway.

You’re automatically entered in the July giveaway!

This month, I’m giving away books to TWO lucky winners! You could win a copy of Susan Spann’s Claws of the Cat (the first of her Hiro Hattori and Father Mateo mysteries) or CLIMB, her brand new memoir about her adventures summiting a hundred Japanese peaks in a year

How I pick the winners: On the last day of each month, I load all the email addresses of Japanagram subscribers into a random name picker on the Web and ask it to choose subscribers to match however many books I’m giving away that month. Then I publish the emails in the next day’s Japanagram (all emails obscured in a way so only the subscriber will be able to recognize it as their own, of course!)
