Friday, April 19, 2013

…I thought it was about time I have another giveaway, seeing as there aren't any going on right now except for my weekly one. So, here we are. It's also partially a celebration of the fact that I have a domain now.

Of course, I had to decide what I actually wanted to give away. This is always the hardest part of giveaways. It's such a chore to figure out if I should give away TBD cash or a certain book or what. It's actually pretty stressful.

So, I wanted to make this giveaway special. So, the one grand prize winner will receive a package of preorders including the following three books. Please note that The Book Depository must ship to you. If it does not, I am willing to use an alternate website. However, in this case you must be willing to pay shipping.

These are three of my most anticipated releases for this year! They're all second books in a series. I'm thrilled to be offering them up to you all.

Then there will be two runner-ups who can each choose an already-released ebook from me since dealing with preorders for ebooks is really annoying and I refuse to do it. Anyway.

Please read my giveaway policy before entering. It is usually obvious when you don't, and yes, I will disqualify anyone who does not follow my guidelines.

So, to enter, just use the pretty rafflecopter below.
