For most of you, the summer is just beginning. Technically, it’s summer here too, but the worst of the heat is behind us. Summer is rainy and chilly here — to which I can only say, thank goodness! I was getting tired of the burning sun and water rationing. Anyhow, since I have more than enough cool to share the wealth (I mean this in a meteorological sense, but you’re welcome to think otherwise), I have three very cool books lined up to give away today and two of them, thanks to my amazing editor Anne Sowards, aren’t even available in stores yet.
What do I have for you, my pretties? Well, I’m glad you asked.
First up is MARK OF THE DEMON by Diana Rowland. This is one seriously amazing book. I think my favorite part is the fantastic sense of place. You can really tell that Ms. Rowland is familiar with her setting; she breathes life into the book. What else is good? Well, the setting, the characters, the writing, the story… oh, and I can’t forget the amazing procedural aspects. If you always wanted to cross a police procedural with paranormal elements, you might just have a book-gasm over this one. Who am I kidding? You probably will anyway. To celebrate her debut, I’m giving away three copies.
The next book, which isn’t even out in stores yet, is TRICK OF THE LIGHT by Rob Thurman. This is the first book in a new series, and she’s writing a chick this time. Cool, right? If you like angels, demons and artifacts that could jumpstart the apocalypse, then you want this one. I have two hot and sexy ARCS, waiting for the right readers to give them good homes. Is it you?
But wait, there’s more! Mark del Franco, author of the Connor Grey series, has got a new one coming out. Laura Blackstone specializes in fey glamours, but is her magic only SKIN DEEP? This is your chance to find out just how awesome this new series is. And best of all — you can totally taunt your friends and family with kung-fu-in-your-face-I-got-an-arc action. I have one copy of this book, and I’ll be scrutinizing your comments for just the right reader.
All of these just have gorgeous cover art, don’t they? Don’t you wish you had one in your hands RIGHT NOW? I can make it happen. I have the magic in my bones.
But first, you have to play with me. (You knew there was a catch, didn’t you? You’ve been here before.)
First, you have to say which one you want. (I know! So hard to choose.) If you want any of the three, then you have to comment three separate times (but not in succession!)
To win MARK OF THE DEMON, you have to tell me what you’d ask a demon for, if you summoned one. But be careful with your wording! Demons are tricksy.
To win TRICK OF THE LIGHT, you have to tell me what kind of artifact you think would trigger the apocalypse.
To win SKIN DEEP, you have to tell me what you’d look like if you could disguise yourself with a fairy glamour.
And like I said, you can try to win any of the three, but you have to answer all of the above in three separate, non-consecutive comments.
Clear? Get going then! You have books to win. Sweet, sweet books. You have 4 days, 21 hours, 42 minutes, and 19 seconds. Why? Because I’m like that.
Winners are posted above. You can continue to comment but it won’t win you any books.
