Countdown to ANGELS' BLOOD

Contest now closed: Give me a few days to collate all the entries as they came in via email as well. I'll announce the winner here and in a new post either Thurs 12th or Fri 13th.

WINNERS

Here are the winners of the "spreading the word" part of the Angels' Blood Countdown Contest, thanks to the random number generator.


Winner of the $100 gift certificate is Lexie!

Winner of the ARC of Branded By Fire (to be posted out when ready), is Allison('s) Reads.

Congratulations!!

This post will stay up top for a while. Scroll down for newer posts.




ANGELS' BLOOD releases March 3rd! Plus on February 24th, you can get an advance taste of this world in ANGELS' PAWN, a special electronic release!

I am very, very,
very excited about the release of this new series, and to kick it off, I've organized an extravangaza. This extravaganza shall be called the ANGELS' BLOOD Countdown, and it will involve prizes, prizes and more prizes. Are you interested yet?

There are going to be two ways to win.


Prize #1

A $100 gift certificate to any online bookstore of your choice (so long as I can make the order fairly painlessly). Think about how many books you could buy with that! Ooooh....

This prize is all about spreading the word. So to enter to win, all you have to do is talk about the release of ANGELS' BLOOD on your blog, journal, myspace, facebook, website etc.

You can do a post of your own, or you can use one of the widgets in this post, it's all up to you. If you feel inspired and make up a widget/graphic etc of your own, I'll put you into an extra draw - for an ARC (advanced reading/review copy) of BRANDED BY FIRE (to be posted out when I get it).

You can even Twitter about the book, tell a friend or three, or mention it on a forum (but please follow the rules of any forum re posting).

Then just leave a note on this blog post by midnight March 8th 2009 E.S.T. with the link to where you posted (if applicable), or a note saying what you did to spread the word. If you have a problem commenting, email me the link at nalinisinghwrites AT gmail DOT com.

Prizes # 2 - ?

There are many, many, many prizes in this pool. Thanks to my fabulous editor Cindy Hwang and the wonderful Anne Sowards at Ace/Roc, as well as a number of authors, I have ARCs(!!) many wuuuuuunderful ARCs for upcoming books from paranormal to contemporary to historical.

And thanks to several authors, I have heaps of signed books to give away!

To enter the draw for these prizes, all you have to do is turn up to the blog and join in the countdown (by leaving a comment with your answer to that day's fun entry question)! There's going to be a new prize, maybe two every day until March 3rd, which is the release day for ANGELS' BLOOD! Each contest will run for 24 hours (or if I lose track, until I close the comments). The winner will be announced in an edited note at the top of each post.

And since we're celebrating two release dates, February 24th might feature a surprise or three. You'll have to come back to see. :-)

I have added the widget to my facebook account (I'm a "friend" of yours there - same name as here) and on my myspace account (again...I'm a friend there, same name). I have also been keeping our book club abreast of your contests and such on the Twilight Lexicon, the Flight to Phoenix forum, the thread with your name on it! You are also one of my favorite authors listed on my shelfari.

Jackie M (Literary Escapism) said...

Is there a certain time frame where we have to pimp the book?

Since I was one of the lucky few, I wrote a review for Angels' Blood and have that on Literary Escapism. I also pimped it out a few days before the 1st since I was asked to post the review in February. And I'm pimping it again today. Loved the book - it was fabulous!

Treethyme said...

I'm a huge fan so I'm more than happy to post the widget on both my MySpace blog and my Facebook page. I'm Becke Martin in both of those places.
