Big Stack O' Books Giveaway


In celebration of my upcoming release and in massive, enormous, fall-down-to-my-knees-in-thanks to my followers and readers, I offer a


As you can tell by the pic below, I've been saving books. Here's what's up for grabs: an ARC of the first Charlie Madigan book (signed), 3 Stacia Kane books (Megan Chase series), 3 Molly Harper books (Jane Jameson series), first 2 Linda Robertson Books (Persephone Alcmedi series), 1 by Dee Davis (Dangerous Desires), 1 by Karin Harlow (Enemy Lover), 1 by Maggie Shayne (Killing Me Softly), 2 Kris Kennedy books (signed), and the last Morgan Kingsley book by Jenna Black (signed).

All the books are brand new, and I'm throwing in a very cool mousepad from Pocket After Dark (Go sign up! It's a cool place!), and some swag (bookmarks, postcard, coverflat) as well as a 5 signed copies of THE DARKEST EDGE OF DAWN, the second Charlie Madigan book (not shown).

I will draw five winners. Each winner will choose 3 books in the pic in order in which I have drawn them. Everyone gets a signed copy of DEOD, bringing your total to four. So five winners get four books:

-- First winner drawn will get 1st choice of three of the books pictured + the swag.

-- Other four winners will get their choice of three. Choices will be made in order in which I draw.


Comment and you're entered, open internationally, contest runs for one week, ending Aug 25th at noon EST, winner announced shortly therefter. Please leave a way for me to contact you!!

Your comment gets you one entry (no matter how many times you comment). To get more, here's how:

+1 if you mention this elsewhere (like twitter, a blog, FB...) (multiple mentions are awesome, but will still only get you a +1. This just makes it easier for me to count in the end, but please feel free to spread the word if you want!!) :-)
+1 if you already follow my Blog or become a new follower.
+1 if you already follow me here on Twitter or become a new follower.
+1 if you already follow me here on Facebook or become a new follower.

Some of you have been following me for a while, but please make sure to list your +1's, so I have everything within the comments section and can tally the entries up easily. Good luck! :-)
