Contest Round 16: Rachel Vincent

It's Monday and it's going to be a very busy, busy day! Just a reminder: I will be hanging out at Bitten By Books all day, answering questions and chatting it up with readers. They are also running an awesome contest, so come over and hang out with me!

But wait! There's more and you know it! It's Monday, so that means it's time for another super entry in my Contest Extravaganza! This week, I'm giving away a signed copy of Rachel Vincent's Stray. This is the first book in her Shifters series. If you haven't started this series yet, winning a this book is a great way to get started! And even if you have read the series, wouldn't you like to own a signed copy of the first book in the series?

Here is a
description of Stray:

"
I look like an all-American grad student. But I am a werecat, a shape-shifter, and I live in two worlds. Despite reservations from my family and my Pride, I escaped the pressure to continue my species and carved out a normal life for myself.

Until the night a Stray attacked.
This brush with danger was all my Pride needed to summon me back... for my own protection.

Yeah, right. But I'm no meek kitty. I'll take on whatever and whoever--I have to in order to find my friends. Watch out, Strays--'cause I got claws, and I'm not afraid to use them..."


I've read this one and it's awesome. You don't want to miss out on this book or series. If you're interested in throwing your name in the hat, here are some quick rules.

Leave a comment in this entry on either my Blogger or LiveJournal account.
Do NOT leave your email address (This is to protect you from SPAMMERS)
The contest is open to domestic and international readers.
The contest closes at midnight Eastern Standard Time on Saturday, October 31.
I will announce the winner on Sunday, November 1.
The winner will have until Sunday, November 8 to contact me or the book will go out for another contest.

Thanks and good luck!

FantasiaBreeze said...

I absolutely loved Stray, unfortunately its the only 1 i could get hold of in the series, Australia always seems so outa the loop in these things :'(

Even if I don't win a book I just wanna say that rachel's character building in the book is excellent, Faythe is so head-strong n gutsy you can't help but love her! (and as a feminist, totally respect her desires for independence!) xoxo

I've been wanting to read this book, thanks for offering it in a contest! KLB

NatarshaOz said...

I need to win this book. It is not available in any of my local bookstores. I have had it on order for close to 6 weeks now.
In desperation, for this whole week, I shall endeavour to subconsciously influence you into randomly selecting my post by continuously thinking "Piick Meeee. Piiiick MeeeEEeee, Jocelynnnnnn".

TBunsie said...

I was reluctant to start this series but it kept calling to me. I'm fairly new to fantasy, so people turning into giant cats and policing other cats just sounded way weird to me. I'm so glad I picked it up, I was totally sucked in and now I feel like I belong to the Pride myself.

Eleni Konstantine said...

Been meaning to start this series...fascinating.

buddyt said...

I haven't read any of the books in this series and this is obviously the place to start !

Please include me in the drawing.
Thanks.

Taylor Marie said...

I've wanted to read this series for so long it's not even funny.

Maybe I'll win this and finally be able to start (:

alterlisa said...

This is a wonderful series. I have throughly enjoyed it. Now that Faythe has matured and isn't so whiny I expect it to really take off. Would love a signed copy of her first book.

Ooh, I'd love to check this out!
My lovely parents have recently decided i buy too many books. (Me? I know. *gasp* )
In conclusion, I am now banned from any bookstore until the first of January… If I win, I would devour this book in a heartbeat, and re-read my favorite scenes until my eyes bleed. No, I am not joking.
Plus, I’m sure it’s a fantastic book and would make a great addition to my collection.
:o)

Thanks for the opportunity!

And yeah, thee book looks awesome as well!
