Please visit all these generous authors! Now admire their pretty covers.

All books in the lottery are signed. Here’s how this works. There will be “hot” times to comment, but you must comment often because you never know when you might get lucky. This contest runs until I have announced ALL the winners, at least one a day. No spamming, no random links. Your comment must contain content and pertain to the books or something a prior commenter has already said. Once I announce a winner, I will “reset” the contest, and we’ll begin again for the books left in the lottery.

Everyone understand how we play? I’ll start us off with a question, but feel free to let the conversation evolve. However, if you’re coming in later, and you can’t think of anything to say on your first comment, you can always answer this for your comment. (Do not answer it repeatedly; that will not win you anything.)

Which five (5) of these books are you most excited to read and why? Basically you make a wish-list for me, and I’ll regularly announce winners. So that’s it. There are some lovely, lovely books up for grabs, and a HUGE number of winners to be found.

By release day, April 6th, I will have given away ALL of these books. That just leaves one final giveaway: a $50 gift certificate to the bookstore of your choice. Anyone who has commented to date will be entered in that; the reset function doesn’t count for the grand prize, and each comment counts as one entry. The no spamming rule still applies, though. And go for it!

First winner: Robin K & Wicked Enchantment!
2nd winner: Michelle (of See Michelle Read) & Proof by Seduction
3rd winner: MamaKitty & Take Me
4th winner: Ayla_F & Laid Bare

All winners email me their name & mailing info. You have one week to claim your prize, and then I re-draw.

(Load time was again getting long. So it’s locked now, and we’re continuing here.)

ETA: So that’s all the book winners. You can keep commenting but it won’t win you any books.

Hell Fire Arc contest

Hell Fire So I have 10 arcs of this fine book.

Two of them are reserved for a Twitter contest. When I reach 2000 followers, I’m giving away two of these arcs. So that’s one way you can enter. Then post a comment saying you’ve done so. You must be following me at the time these two ARCs are awarded.

That leaves eight others ARCs up for grabs for other people. But I’m combining these contests for simplicity. To enter, simply post this widget in your blog sidebar.

If you don’t have a blog, you can Twitter about the contest. You can also post the widget on Facebook and MySpace. Then come back here to comment and tell me it’s done. If you have no social media whatsoever, then tell your friends about the giveaway in whatever manner you see fit. Comment to tell me how you’re spreading the word about the second Corine Solomon book.

This contest will run for two weeks. By entering, you agree you’ll post a review somewhere by April 6.

ETA: One week left. To sweeten the pot and make sure I hit 2K by next Friday, I’m adding a $50 Amazon gift certificate. One lucky, random winner will get a $50 Amazon gift certificate in addition to the Hell Fire ARC. How sweet is that? You must be following me on Twitter to enter and win. If you don’t have Twitter and you want that book money, well, it’s pretty simple to open an account. You can decide if it’s worth it.

Happy holidays

xmas treeYes, that’s my Christmas tree this year (and the actual view into the front garden / garage). The kids did a great job, don’t you think? I mostly supervised.

This is the last post I’ll be making for 2009. Sometimes I do a “best of” post, including my top ten favorite books. I’m not going to do that, mainly because 2009 has been the year of work for me. I’m pleased and proud of what I’ve accomplished but I am not in a ranking mood.

Today I am in a giving mood.

Hell Fire Or if you’re in the UK… *points to the right* Hell Fire UK Gollancz is doing back-to-back releases for Blue Diablo and Hell Fire in the UK. I hope y’all like reading about Texas. In book four (if there is a book four), Corine will be traveling to England, Stoke to be exact, to meet (and help) the oh-so-mysterious Ian Booke. Which means I’ll be planning a trip soon.

So without further ado, I offer you, my dear readers, a chance to win a copy of my Hell Fire proofs. They have been marked in a few places by me. Not many, I will grant you, and not much. This was a fairly clean set of proofs. I will bind these with a ribbon inside a cover flat, so it will be pretty close to a proper book, only personalized, signed, and written on, by me. If that seems like a cool thing to get for the holidays, then you should enter the contest. What do you have to do?

It’s simple. Tell me what you liked most about Blue Diablo. Since this giveaway is for the second book in the series, I assume you’ve read it. If not, and you just want the bragging rights, then I guess you’d better get reading regardless. Cos I will not accept answers like, It has a great cover, or I like the heroine’s hair, or it’s awesomely book-like. Alternately, I will also accept the answer to why you want to read Hell Fire.

And go!

(Winner announced next Monday. You will probably receive it after the holidays, due to slow mail.)

ETA: And the winner is… Meghan! Email me your full name and mailing address, so I can hook you up. Happy holidays, everyone!
