The Hostage to Pleasure Release Contest

CONTEST NOW CLOSED

To celebrate the upcoming (September 2nd!) release of Hostage to Pleasure the 5th full-length entry in the Psy/Changeling world, I'm running a fun contest all about being hostages to pleasure *grin*


What's up for grabs?


The winner, chosen at random, will receive a US$75 gift certificate from the online bookstore of your choice :)

What do you have to do to enter?

(a) Do a post on your blog, livejournal, myspace, facebook or website etc, where you answer at least one of the questions below. You can do all three questions if you like!
* Which fictional hero (from books, tv, movies...) would you most like to hold hostage?

* Which fictional hero would you most like to be held hostage by?


* Which fictional world would you most like to be held hostage in?
(b) link back to this post & mention the contest
(c) post the cover of Hostage to Pleasure if possible; and

(d) leave a comment here with a link to where you've posted your entry (if, for some reason, you can't comment, email me the details at nalinisinghwrites @ gmail.com (without the spaces))

*NOTE: If you're leaving a Myspace link, please leave a link to your profile - the direct links to the blogs aren't working.
(e) do all this before midnight September 5th, 2008, PST.


And most of all - have fun!!

Hi, Mariana :) I tried to buy a copy at that store (my ARC got lost), but it only accepts credit cards from USA or Canada... But I just discovered that BN.com is already selling the book, so I cancelled my Amazon order, and ordered it in BN, choosing priority international mail :) I cannot wait a minute longer, auch...

Yes, me too, Marian :)

I´m moving to another house, and due to the fact that I have tons of books (I studied Political Science, and love languages), I had to leave quite a few behind. All Nalini´s books are coming with me ;)

BTW, I read some of the blog postings in this contest, great writing, congrats !!

Wow, this is really fun! I found this on Amanda Ashby's page, and she was saying you're from NZ too! Yay, go kiwis! I get really, really excited when I see fellow NZers or even Aussies on the blogs- they're just so rare! I hail from Auckland but I'm at Otago Uni at the moment. (Hehe, I've always wanted to say that whole 'I hail from' thing!) I was looking at your website, and it is so awesome! You are so lucky that you get to travel to so many places around the world, and write awesome stories- it sounds like a dream life. =) I think I'm ranting now, so I'll just say that I blogged about this contest here:
http://teenreaderwatcherlistener.blogspot.com/2008/09/nalini-singhs-hostage-to-pleasure.html

Thanks so much for reading this really long comment- I sort of go off on a tangent sometimes, whoops!
Hope you have an awesome day!
