"Outstanding!" That's how the response to the contest was described. Yes, the great Goodreads contest for Dead on the Wind is over and the winners of free books are being notified by Amazon.com. The free books are now being sent out by Independent Publishers Group, Chicago, the Marlor Press distributor for the book. Now we're a little over 150 days away for the running of the Vendee Globe, the race that inspired Dead on the Wind.
