Monday Special--When Comes What Darkly Thieves

I'm skipping my Monday Miscellany this week to focus on a special book--one that really captured my eye and my imagination. Just look at BEN RUBIN'S art work.  To me it's highly evocative and totally irresistible. His story is as well, and it may be in picture book format, but it appeals to all age groups with its tale of gypsies, and fears and those dreams that catch at us in the night. Here's how that tale begins.

     Imagine this, you have always been afraid of gypsies, and for
     good reason too. After all, you’ve been told all your life that
     gypsies carry children away in sacks, that they take them
     away from their families, away from everything they’ve ever
     loved and everything they’ve ever known.

So two of you wonderful followers of the Write Game can get a free pdf copy by leaving a comment and spreading the word about WHEN COMES WHAT DARKLY THIEVES.

I want to support this writer/illustrator for several reasons: I love his work. He's taken a risk by writing and drawing something that is new and different. 10% of any of his sales, he donates to charitable causes. Very lovely combination of reason, wouldn't you say?

So if you'd like this gorgeous, unique book delivered to your computer, tell me so. Give Ben some promotion on Twitter and fb and wherever you hang out, then let me know the links so I can tell him. Offer expires Friday, Sept. 23.

It would be very nice if you'd also visit his WEBSITE and buy a hardcopy of his book. When you do you also get a sharable pdf. Think Christmas and think "very collectible book." I've already got mine!
