Maybe it's simply a bout of "End of Book Madness", but I've got a massive prize pack that I'm looking to give away to a lucky reader. I'm currently working on the last few chapters of Book 5 -- WAIT FOR DUSK. I'm getting to those last fight scenes where the world comes crashing down around the characters, surprises are unleashed, and Mira just knocks the crap out of people. It's always insanely fun to write these chapters, but it's also very exhausting. At this point, as a writer you're throwing everything you've got into these chapters so you can totally wow your readers. After I finish this book, I'm thinking about crawling under the bed and hiding for a couple days. I need a break.
But "there's no time for love, Dr. Jones!" as Shorty would tell Indiana, and there's no time for me to hide because we're busy celebrating the release of Dawnbreaker in just a few short days. Whoo-hoo! Just I'm exhausted and maybe a little delirious. That might explain why I'm not giving away just 1 book. Oh no! I'm giving away 4!
To properly kick off the series, I am giving away a signed copy of the Unbound anthology, which has a Dark Days novella in it called "The Dead, the Damned, and the Forgotten". This novella is set ahead of the main action in the series and introduces you to some characters that will be appearing throughout the series. In addition, this fabulous anthology contains stories from Kim Harrison, Vicki Pettersson, Melissa Marr, and Jeaniene Frost.
Once you've read "The Dead, the Damned, and the Forgotten," you'll find yourself longing for more stories in the Dark Days world, so I am also giving away signed copies of Nightwalker, Dayhunter, and Dawnbreaker. Yes, win an entire signed set of books!
If you haven't read the series yet, this is a great way to jump in to the fun. If you've already got the series, then keep the signed books and give your gently worn copies to a friend, getting them hooked on the series. Or save them and give them away as a holiday gift! Yes, summer is over and it's time to think about holiday shopping. Start it now by winning a great set of books.
Am I insane?
