Original Contest delayed.... we'll run a new one in its place!

This one hits two genres. We've got one for the romantics and one for the kiddos. And the holidays are coming up people...books have always been my favorite gift!

It's book giveaway time!

For the kiddos we've got:
Alison Hart's TAKING THE REINS is one of the first book in American Girl's new choose-your-own-adventure type series. So if you have a daughter, granddaughter, niece or friend who loves AG, enter now!

Remember when I told you guys about Nancy Viau? Well if you'd like to read her first novel, now's the time to get a copy!

Bonus: If over fifteen people enter for the kiddo package, we will add in two surprise bonus books (also middle grade).

And for the romantics, we've got a Rosemary Rogers package:

Both books are set in the same historical "universe" as there are recurring characters (the first two books in this are A DARING PASSION and SCANDALOUS DECEPTION).

But the cool part? You don't have to read them in order--sweet, right?

Bonus: If over fifteen people enter for the romance package, we'll throw in the first two books in the series, too!


After we have fifteen entrants for each contest, we will up the prize EVEN MORE. For every five more entrants (in each contest), we add another surprise title to each package. That could be lots and lots of books. LOTS.

So, how to enter. Well, it's easy:

1. You must be a follower of the blog.
2. Leave a comment here and state which package you're entering for.
3. Blog/tweet/facebook about the contest and leave the link in your comment.
4. Enter by Sunday, October 17th, at midnight.
5. You must have a US address for the winning package to be mailed to. (Sorry, sorry--postage has gone up too much!)

Shoot. I feel guilty entering my own agent's contest, but I'd really, really love those Rosemary Rogers books.

Lynne Kelly Hoenig said...

Hmm, I think I'd love any of the books, but I'll pick the romance package.

Totally copied Monica's tweet.

Monica said...

I think Lynne should get disqualified for plagerism. And then I should win because I got emotionally scarred from it.

I'll throw in a signed bookplate, some bookmarks, and a couple of very cool rocks for the winner of the Kiddo pkg.

Jessica said...

Daughter adores American Girl. Nancy's book sounds right up her alley too (she's fascinated with geology). I'd like to be entered for the kiddo package!

With 24 nieces and nephews, I typically don't buy them presents because I'm not a flipping billionaire. The kiddo package would go a long way to make me less lame.

Thank you, ladies!

Hannah said...

Wow - the cover art on the Rosemary Rogers books is gorgeous! I'm sold. Put me down for the romance, please!


Francesca said...

Ooh MG books please! I've long since stopped pretending I read anything else. (Well, perhaps some YA, Terry Pratchett or Neil Gaiman.) I just *might* let the children read these, but only after I'm finished.

Francesca said...

Ooops! Tweeted here:

Sorry about double-commenting. Time for more coffee.

Laura Pauling said...
