All of the books I pre-ordered came in at least a week early!! I'm pretty happy about that, however that means my book buying ban went out the window again this week! We'll see how well I do next week, eh? (I'm not holding my breath...) ;)

Contest Winner

The giveaway for Ondine: The Summer of Shambles is now over. Thank you all for entering the contest! The winner was brendajean. Congratulations!! I have already emailed her, and am waiting to hear back. If I don't get a response in 48 hours I will have to pick another winner.

Contest News

This week has sparked off a lot of contests! First up, I'll be celebrating my birthday later this month, and I thought I'd have a giveaway to share the birthday fun with you guys. :) Four books are up for grabs: Paranormalcy, Losing Faith, Firelight, and Shadow Hills. I've had a phenomenal response already and hope you all enter the giveaway! It is international! :) 

Cynthia Roberts, author of Wind Warrior, has kicked off her month long blog tour and giveaway. I urge you all to check out the giveaway, and help spread the love for her and her book! Some of the prizes up for grabs are amazon giftcards, a pearl and crystal necklace, a chocolate prize pack, and a deluxe picnic basket for two. The official giveaway post on my blog can be found here. You can see all of the blogs that are participating in the tour on Cynthia's website.

Scott Nicholson has kicked off his blog tour as well. His tour started September first and will end November 30th. He will be promoting his horror and thriller books. He will be giving away some of his books, as well as a couple of kindles. He will be hosted here on October 7th, but you will have more chances to win if you follow along from the beginning of the tour. You can find all of the details on his website here

I think that's about it this week... I hope that all of you have a happy and safe (holiday) weekend. 

I almost forgot! ;) What did you get in your mailbox??

Happy reading! :)
