Giveaway: 100 Followers Mega Giveaway!

November 18, 2009 Giveaways 53

I just hit 100 followers!  So to thank all of you, I’m having another Mega Giveaway.  I love giveaways and enter as many as I personally can as often as I can.  I even win occasionally.  What I’m not so good at is remembering to cancel book orders/remove from swap wish lists the books I win.  The result:  I have quite a few duplicate books floating around my already packed-to-within-an-inch-of-their-lives bookcases.  This way, you win books and I gain some much needed bookcase real estate space. 

When I hit 50 followers, I gave away 3 books.  Now that I’m at 100 followers, I’m giving away 6 books! Half of theses books are brand new (two are even signed) the other three have been gently read. There will be three winners who get to pick two books each.  Up for grabs this time is:



  • Dead Over Heels by MaryJanice Davidson
  • Dead and Loving It by MaryJanice Davidson
  • Blue Diablo by Ann Aguirre
  • Once Bitten by Kalayna Price
  • Ink Exchange by Melissa Marr
  • Strange Brew Edited by P. N. Elrod

Dead Over Heels by MaryJanice Davidson

Three all-new paranormal stories of lust, laughter, and love from the New York Times bestselling author, including an original novella featuring Undead queen Betsy Taylor. With her trademark "sassy dialogue, lusty lovemaking irreverent humor"* New York Times bestselling author MaryJanice Davidson delighted fans with her wickedly sexy and wildly funny anthology, Dead and Loving It-stories in which the worlds of the Wyndham Werewolves and Undead Queens collided. Now she returns to that sensual and irresistible after-dark realm of werewolves, vampires, and mermaids in three more original novellas–including an all-new Betsy Taylor novella.

Dead and Loving It by MaryJanice Davidson

USA Today bestselling author MaryJanice Davidson has enchanted readers everywhere with her delicious blend of wicked humor, sizzling sex, and totally unique vision of vampires and werewolves. In this collection of four novellas she brings her beloved Wyndham werewolves (featured in her acclaimed novel Derek’s Bane) together with the vampires ruled by Betsy Taylor (from her bestselling Undead series).  Filled with equal parts of spicy heat and laugh-out-loud moments, this collection will drive Davidson’s legion of fans wild with blood-pounding delight.

Blue Diablo by Ann Aguirre

Corine Solomon is a handler – when she touches an object she instantly knows its history and its future. Using her ability, she can find the missing – which is why people never stop trying to find her. Like her ex-boyfriend Chance, who needs Corine’s gift to find someone dear to them both. But the search proves dangerous as it leads them into a strange world of demons and sorcerers, ghosts and witchcraft, zombies – and black magic…

Once Bitten by Kalayna Price

Kita Nekai, on the run and the smallest of her shifter clan-a calico cat among lions and tigers-is being hunted. She was expected to accept her role as her father’s successor whether or not her cat was up to the task of leading the clan. She disagreed. Now she’s less than a step ahead of the hunters, bone-tired, cold, and living hand-to-mouth in the city of Haven. And that’s the high point of her day. She’s also drugged, "accidently" turned into a vampire, and sentenced to death for recklessly creating a rogue shifter who tortures its human prey. She’s got seventy-two hours to find the rogue, evade a city full of hunters, prove she’s not responsible for the rogue, and keep the vampire council from killing her. All while sorting out an apprentice mage, a married ex-boyfriend shifter-hunter, and the vampire who made her.

Ink Exchange by Melissa Marr

Unbeknownst to mortals, a power struggle is unfolding in a world of shadows and danger. After centuries of stability, the balance among the Faery Courts has altered, and Irial, ruler of the Dark Court, is battling to hold his rebellious and newly vulnerable fey together. If he fails, bloodshed and brutality will follow. Seventeen-year-old Leslie knows nothing of faeries or their intrigues. When she is attracted to an eerily beautiful tattoo of eyes and wings, all she knows is that she has to have it, convinced it is a tangible symbol of changes she desperately craves for her own life. The tattoo does bring changes – not the kind Leslie has dreamed of, but sinister, compelling changes that are more than symbolic. Those changes will bind Leslie and Irial together, drawing Leslie deeper and deeper into the faery world, unable to resist its allures, and helpless to withstand its perils. . . .

Strange Brew by P N Elrod

Today’s hottest urban fantasy authors come together in this delicious brew that crackles and boils over with tales of powerful witches and dark magic! In Charlaine Harris’ ‘Bacon,’ a beautiful vampire joins forces with a witch from an ancient line to find out who killed her beloved husband. In ‘Seeing Eye’ by Patricia Briggs, a blind witch helps sexy werewolf Tom Franklin find his missing brother – and helps him in more ways than either of them ever suspected. And in Jim Butcher’s ‘Last Call,’ wizard Harry Dresden takes on the darkest of dark powers – the ones who dare to mess with this favorite beer.
For anyone who’s ever wondered what lies beyond the limits of reality, who’s imagined the secret spaces where witches wield fearsome magic, come and drink deep. Let yourself fall under the spell of this bewitching collection!

    Cool…first commenter (I Think I spelled that wrong)

    Well I love the book blogs for a couple of reasons…I enjoy the reviews for one…I kinda decide not to buy a book and just get it from the library if it gets crap for reviews.
    I love the contests to. As much as I would want to buy EVEry book that catches my eye I can't. So it's a great opportunity to win some 🙂
    I would like to get if I should be lucky and win:
    Dead over heels
    Once bitten

  10. Book Crazy Jenn

    Awesome congratulations! 🙂

    I am a follower and my email is Jenn@ (with out the space LOL)

    My fav thing about book blogs is not the reviews, or the interviews or even the give aways (though I love all that stuff) I LOVE LOVE connecting with people who LOVE to read as much as I do – I think it joins us in a way that nothing can – some people have football, some have TV, some have movies, we have books and though it maybe really a geek thing to do (LOL I am a geek LOL) that's ok, and its not "frowned upon" in this community – which I LOVE…LOTS of people just "dont" get it – not at all!

    I would love to read
    Once Bitten
    Ink Exchange as well as maybe Dead and loving it? LOL 🙂 They all look good! 🙂

  11. Daelith

    Congratulations on the growing fan base.

    Thanks and congrats on hitting 100 followers!!

    I love book blogs because it helps me weed out of my list of to be boughts/reads by getting the reviews that most of the book blogs have. Plus, I love books, so I love reading about books. 🙂

    I'd like to win Once Bitten, Ink Exchange and Blue Diablo.

    Ok, try 2…crazy wordpress.

    [email protected]

    The reason I love blogs is that it exposes me to authors I might not come across on my own. Thanks to blogs, I have a 'to read' list that will take me years to finish, which I don't mind. You can never have too many good books.

    As for new authors, I had not heard of Kalayna Price, but her book is now going on my to win list.

    1 – Once Bitten by Kalayna Price
    2 – either MaryJanice Davidson book
    3 – Strange Brew

    So, i think that's technically 4, but I'm flexible. I am following.

  25. CrystalGB

    Congrats on reaching 100 followers.

  26. Cherie J

    Congrats on 100 Followers! I am now a follower.

    I love reading book blogs to learn about new books. I read the reviews to get an idea of whether to bother or not with a particular book. The giveaways are also a great way to help stock my reading pile.

    Two books I would be interested im would be Strange Brews and Once Bitten with Ink Exchange as an alternate.

  27. Mishel

    I'd be lieing if I said I didn't enjoy giveaways the most but what I really love is finding out about new releases and books I wouldn't normally have heard of just by reading blogs. It's awesome!!

    Congrats on your followers btw =)

    My choices would be:

    Blue Diablo & Strange Brew
    w/ Once Bitten as my alternative

    I'd love to have Ink Exchange and Strange Brew with Once Bitten as an alternate.


  33. Star Shadow

    My favorite thing about book blogs is that they give me authors or book information that I havnt yet read or heard about.. So it keeps me up to date on some good reads.

    2nd Choice
    Strange Brew

    Once Bitten

  36. Kimberly B.

    What a terrific contest! I just subscribed via email.
    I really enjoy giveaways, but what I especially appreciate in a book blog is the honest reviews. If a reviewer is honest and specific (without giving too many spoilers) about what s/he likes or dislikes in a book, it's a really great way for me to find a good read!
    I'd choose
    Strange Brew
    Once Bitten
    Dead Over Heels as my alternate.
