Happy Dayhunter Release Day!

"The time has come, the Walrus said,
To talk of many things
of ships and shoes
and ceiling wax
and of cabbages and kings...."

Well, let's consider that a paraphrase because my memory, she's not so good anymore.

The point is that it is time to talk of book releases, such as the wonderful amazing release of Dayhunter, the second book in the Dark Days series. Whoo-hoo! I'm am both completely excited, thrilled, overwhelmed, and more than a little terrified. I love Dayhunter. I loved writing this book. I love all the amazing things that happen within this book, so I naturally want my readers to love the book just as much. Are my expectations way too high? :)

So, let's say that you read Nightwalker and you're just not sure whether you're going to pick up Dayhunter. Here are some of my favorite reasons to pick up this book.

1. Danaus tells you of his heritage. Yeah, I finally give you a little background into his dark past and the reason for some of his powers. Let's just say that it knocks Mira on her butt, literally.

2. You get some juicy background information regarding both Mira and Rowe, and how they are linked together. This one surprised me when I was writing it. Seriously.

3. Mira makes a life-altering decision that will send ripples through the rest of the series.

Are you hooked yet? Enticed? Salivating?

Okay, how about a giveaway to celebrate? I thought that might catch your attention. Post a comment on this blog entry and you will be in the running for a signed copy of Dayhunter along with a Dayhunter mug. I haven't decided yet how many I will be giving away since I haven't officially received my copies of the book yet, but I'm hoping for at least two.

The rules and guidelines:

1. You can't be related to me
2. Only one entry per participant
3. I am willing to ship anywhere on the globe.
4. Sign your post, but do not leave an email address

The contest will run through midnight, Saturday, May 2.

And don't worry. This won't be the only contest. I know of at least one other that will be going up on another blog and I will probably be running more.

Good luck and go buy Dayhunter!

My boyfriend got me hooked on the book! I've been counting down to the release of Dayhunter. I would LOVE a signed copy! :D

viciouslittlething said...

Nightwalker was fantastic, a really good read. Daywalker is on order from amazon, but they seem to have a delay from their suppliers, being in the UK doesn't help :) I'd love to win a special copy!

Midnite607 said...

I absolutely loved the first book! I have told everyone I know who is interested in the vampire stories that all they need to do is read the first chapter of the book and they will know whether they like it or not. It was awesome the action started in the first chapter and didn't stop! I have been waiting for the second book to come out since I finished it! I would love to have a signed copy!

Maija P. said...

I would love to win a copy!!! :)

I just love your charactes, and your story is one of the most amazing I have read in a long time. I'm so glad that there is a second book to your dark days series and I can't wait for the third, fourth, fifth, and sixth, books. I really love your work.

Hi Jocelynn, Love your book right now I'm into the first one and I must admit it took me a while to get into the book, now I'm totally hooked and a little curious about some stuff, I must say I'm adoring Nightwalker and can't wait to get my hands of Dayhunter! So you know your book got to Panama (Central America)and so glad it did!

Congrats on the release! :P
