An Alaska-inspired author cooperative, Running Fox is dedicated to high-quality books that inspire, engage, and transform. For readers young and old, we promote books with strong commercial literary appeal, written by spirited, independent authors who care about language and the shared pleasure of a good book.

Price reductions? We've got 'em. Cold Spell. A Distant Enemy. No Returns. Check out the new e-book prices on these titles. (And speaking of Cold Spell, the audiobook is now available, narrated by the lovely and talented Angel Clark.)

Author events? We've got those too. Plus we had so much fun with our last giveaway that we're going to do it again, in honor of Alaska Book Week: a free autographed print edition of Cold Spell (or an ebook, if you prefer) delivered to the doorstep of one lucky winner. To enter, all you need to do is like our Running Fox Facebook page and also like the post where you see this paragraph about the drawing. It's that easy! From the "likes," we'll pick one lucky winner, to be contacted via Facebook message regarding where the book should be sent. Head right over and enter with your "like," because we'll be drawing a winner at the end of our Alaska Book Week events, on Tuesday, Oct. 14.

Finally, a big congrats to Gail Giles, whose young adult novel Girls Like Us is one of ten books that made the long list for the National Book Award in Young People's Literature."

David Marusek
That's David Marusek, storing the latest version of his manuscript in the Fortress of Solitude. Oh, and he's swearing off social media, which means if you want to stay current on the Fortress, the novel, and other Great Happenings, you'll need to check out his Novel Update email list, a private list for sharing stuff with his readers. He sends list members brief emails with publishing news, but he doesn't spam them with junk.

Meanwhile, he's letting his Facebook, Blogger, G+, and other social media accounts languish. That means the members of his Novel Update list will get the scoop on breaking news before any other outlet.
