Flash Contest #2: Unbound

Time is winding down! Don't miss out on the chance to win a signed copy of Rachel Vincent's latest Shifter novel, Prey! The contest ends on Saturday! Scroll down to leave a comment in Monday's blog post.


I'll admit that I was saving this Flash Contest for Thursday, but I'm just not feeling very well today. So I thought: what would pick me up? A contest. Yes, another contest will perk up my spirit and my body.

So, today I've got the ultimate prize pack for my loyal readers. Yes, I have 1 -- count them -- 1 copy of Unbound, which does not come out until Tuesday, August 25. This amazing little anthology contains stories from the fabulous Kim Harrison, the stunning Vicki Pettersson, the amazing Jeaniene Frost, and the magnificent Melissa Marr, as well as from yours truly.

Here's a quick book description:

"Kim Harrison reveals a hidden adventure, as Jenks and Bis investigate a strange haunting ... and find far more than they ever expected. Melissa Marr delivers her first adult story, featuring a young woman struggling to escape the supernatural fate of her family. Jeaniene Frost goes to New Orleans, where Bones must face down a ruthless pair of serial killers, while Vicki Pettersson returns to Sin City and the war between Light and Shadow, and one man's fight for his soul. Jocelynn Drake's tale is set in Savannah, where a strange murder calls the balance between human and nightwalker into question."

If you enjoy the Dark Days series, then my novella provides a quick look into Mira's world before Danaus's earth-changing arrival. Get a bit closer to Mira and her indispensible assistant Knox. Wait! Want more now? Check out the first chapter of my novella, "The Dead, The Damned, and The Forgotten" by click on this link to my website.

So, you're probably thinking that a chance to win Unbound early is a pretty good deal. But wait! There's more. (Yeah, you're gonna have to put up with me today. I'm not thinking too clear)

Just in case Unbound gets you interested in the Dark Days series, I'm also throwing in signed copies of Nightwalker and Dayhunter -- books 1 and 2 in the Dark Days series. But that's still not all! Just because everyone needs a little swag, I'm also giving away a Dayhunter mug, magnets for Nightwalker, Dayhunter, and Dawnbreaker, AND a cover flat to Dawnbreaker (which comes out September 29). And even if you have Nightwalker and Dayhunter, wouldn't you like to have signed copies?


Now are you interested?

I thought so. Here are the rules:

Leave a comment with your name on either the contest entry on my Blogger or LiveJournal account.
Do NOT leave your email address (This is to protect you from Spammers).
The contest is open for domestic and international readers.
The contest closes at midnight Eastern Standard Time on Friday, August 21, 2009.
The winner will be announced on Saturday, August 22, 2009.
The winner has until Saturday, August 29, 2009 to contact me. If the winner misses the deadline, the books will be put out for another contest.

Good luck!

P.S. Here is a quick picture of the cats "helping" take a picture of the prize pack. I don't know what I would do without their help. :)
