Grats you two, and just e-mail me your contact info so I can send off the books. First one to tell me which version they prefer gets first pick, so let me know if you want The Shifter or The Pain Merchants. (same book, just US vs UK editions). I only have one Shifter left.

Thanks to all the entries. Every title was good, so it was a tough choice, but these two just stood out for me. I would have definitely reached for them if I saw them in the bookstore. But I'm going to do something really wild here since I got a box of The Pain Merchants ARCs. (and we got a small amount of entries on this contest).

Runners up all get books too. I had originally planned on three contests, so same amount of books given away and this way, everyone wins.

So, Wanda, Glen, and Ruth, send me your info too!

We're officially less than a month away from release now (eek!) so I probably won't do another contest . If I do, it'll be a very random, "post and be drawn from a hat" type contest so folks don't have to think so hard. (I did notice the sharp drop off of entries on this one vs the chicken joke, which got over 60 entries) I'd like to be able to give away the actual hardcover book for that contest, but that'll only happen if I get some copies early enough. I'll keep you posted on that.

Grats everyone!


  1. Part of the drop off might have been from AW being down all weekend.

    Also, yay!

    Lots of love,

  2. Awww, thank you! I'm all happy now, that totally made my night. :)

    Also - not sure if you're aware, but there are a couple of blogs (that I just found a couple of days ago) that regularly promote book giveaways - so if you do decide to run another contest, maybe email or leave a comment with them, and they'll help promote your contest. :) The two blogs I found are and - I'm sure there are others, too, but I wasn't aware of these blogs so if you're getting low participation I thought they might help.

    Anyway. Thank you so much for your generosity! :) I'll email you my postal details later tonight.

  3. oooh yeah! Oooh yeah! Thanks! I'm sending my info NOW! Can't believe I just saw this!!

  4. Thanks for the links, Ruth!
