Quick Giveaway!

Jul 21, 2010 Uncategorized 32 comments

I was fortunate to win a copy of Nightshade by Andrea Cremer. All kinds of buzz has been swirling around this book which is released by Philomel in Oct. 2010.

From Ms. Cremer’s web page, here is the description:

While other teenage girls daydream about boys, Calla Tor imagines ripping out her enemies’ throats. And she wouldn’t have it any other way. Calla was born a warrior and on her eighteenth-birthday she’ll become the alpha female of the next generation of Guardian wolves. But Calla’s predestined path veers off course the moment she saves the life of a wayward hiker, a boy her own age. This human boy’s secret will turn the young pack’s world upside down and forever alter the outcome of the centuries-old Witches’ War that surrounds them all.

Instead of being greedy and keeping it for myself, I am going to give away my copy (paperback, read once by me). All you have to do is be a follower and leave a comment with your e-mail address on this post. And I’m sorry, but because of costs, I can only ship to a U.S. or Canadian address (if you’re international, but have someone in the US or Canada I can send it to, I’m totally fine with that).

The last day to enter is Sunday, July 25 at midnight EDT. I’ll post a winner Monday.

So, recap:

  1. I’m giving away a gently used ARC of Nightshade.
  2. To enter, be a follower, leave a comment with e-mail on this post.
  3. Ends Sunday, July 25th at midnight.
  4. U.S. & Canada only.
  5. Good luck!

  19. Hi Janet .. first thanks for coming by and following my blog – I appreciate it.

    Second .. I have a friend in the States who positively 'eats' books .. and give wonderful reviews .. and I'm certain she would love to read it .. and perhaps recommend it to her book club. I'm over the pond .. but she's local .. feeling a little miserable and a cheer-up book out of the blue would be wonderful .. and make our day.

    Sounds really intriguing .. thanks for including me in the draw ..

    Enjoy the rest of the week and weekend with the little ones .. have fun .. Hilary

  20. What a great giveaway this book sounds so good thank you for the chance!
