Contest Extravaganza

I am happy to report that I have completed the edits for Book 4 and it has been shipped to my lovely editor. So, as I promised I have a contest for you. But this isn't just any contest, this is a CONTEST EXTRAVAGANZA. I'm not giving away just my books, I plan on giving away amazing autographed books from the likes of:

Rachel Vincent
Vicki Pettersson
Jeaniene Frost
Jenna Black
Tracey O'Hara
and
Kim Harrison

And there is still the potential for more writers to join in the fun. I currently have the next seven weeks planned out for contests and there will be more to come after. My plan is to announce the contests on Monday and close down the contest on Saturday. I'll announce the winner on Sunday. The winner will have one week to contact me. If I don't hear from the winner in a week, then the book goes back out for another contest.

Okay, enough rambling from me. You want to know who is up for the first contest.

Let's kick this contest off with a bang!

The first book up for grabs is a signed hardback copy of Kim Harrison's Dead Witch Walking. This is the first book in the Rachel Morgan series. If you're a lover of Kim Harrison's series, this is an excellent collector's item. If you haven't read the series yet, this is a great way to get started.

Book Description:

"All the creatures of the night gather in 'the Hollows' of Cincinnati, to hide, to prowl, to party ... and to feed.

Vampire rule the darkness in a predator-eat-predator world rife with dangers beyond imagining -- and it's Rachel Morgan's job to keep the world civilized.

A bounty hunter and witch with serious sex appeal and an attitude, she'll bring 'em back alive, dead ... or undead."

Are you interested? I thought so.

Here are the rules:

Leave a comment in my blog.
Do not leave your email address.
This contest is open to both domestic and international contestants. I will ship anywhere on the planet.
You have until midnight Eastern Standard Time on Saturday, July 18 to enter the contest.
The winner will be announced on Sunday, July 19.
If the winner does not contact me by Sunday, July 26, then the book goes back out for another contest.

Good luck and have fun!
