Kiss of Snow ARC Contest

Contest now closed.

Oooh, pretty!!!!
If you'd like to go in the random draw to win one of five Advanced Reading/Review Copies of Kiss of Snow, send an e-mail to naliniDOTassistantATgmailDOTcom with "Kiss of Snow ARC Contest" in the subject line by by 7pm Thursday March 10th, 2011, New Zealand time.

Edited to add: Please follow the correct format for entry re the subject line, so your e-mail goes into the right in-box. Thanks!

(Your e-mail will only be used to contact you should you win.)

Since these are Advanced Reading/Review Copies, if you win, I'd ask that you please post a review somewhere, on or before the release date (May 31st, 2011) - on a blog, on Amazon, B&N, Goodreads...it's up to you, but it would be much appreciated if you'd post your thoughts somewhere. The contents of the review are, of course, totally up to you, but I would request that you not share any major spoilers until after the book is out.

A note about the ARC - it's substantially the same as the final book, but since
ARCs are printed prior to the final round of edits, there are some errors in the text that aren't in the final book. 

I'll give each winner 48 hours to respond to the email indicating they've won. If I don't hear back within that time, I'll redraw. By entering, you give me permission to post your name on the blog should you win.

The fine print: Contest is open internationally. One entry per household. No purchase necessary to enter. Winner will be chosen randomly using random.org and his or her name(s) posted on this blog on Saturday, March 12th, 2011. Void where prohibited.

Hi.
Just a quick question about the contest :) As I've never entered one before, just wondering what I put in the content of it? Do I just put my details or do I write how much I want the book? Sorry if it seems a silly question, just not sure of the ettiquette of these things.

If someone could help me out please, it'd be very much appreciated.

Thanks

Tyraa said...

Omg this is soo exciting!! I hope I win :))

Anonymous said...

I have a question as well:

Will winners be contacted on March 10th or March 12th (New Zealand time)? (In other words, are they contacted before their names are posted?)

Thanks!

Jikie said...

Ack! ARCs already?! We're getting closer to the release date!

Angela E said...

Ohhh, love the cover of this one. Tee hee. Very nice. :)

Nalini Singh said...

I just wish the eBook form came out about the same time.

It will. The pre-order links just don't tend to appear till closer to the release date.

As I've never entered one before, just wondering what I put in the content of it?

You can leave it blank or include a message. Up to you. :)

Will winners be contacted on March 10th or March 12th (New Zealand time)? (In other words, are they contacted before their names are posted?)

Yes, the winners will be emailed before their names are posted.

azteclady said...

I've already pre-ordered the book, but oh, how sweet it would be to read it in advance! *sigh*

Another question, though. How far in advance to release date should the winners post their review? Personally, I prefer waiting until release day, or at least the same week, a couple of days either way.

Nalini Singh said...

@Azteclady - It's up to the winners, but yes, I'd prefer it close to the release date.

As a reader, that's what I like, because I know I can get the book soon!

Danie said...

All day yesterday I had this persistant feeling that I was waiting for something or that something was going to happen.

So glad that this was the surprise!

lindseye said...

I would love to be included and get an ARC to review.

Anonymous said...

I don't want to make mistakes at my one chance at this cotest. So I ask what does AT mean in the direction to send e-mail?

Nalini Singh said...

Anon - AT means the @ symbol. Good luck with your entry!

Denise said...

;-((( it´s not possible to send my mail, I always get a failure notice (four times now)! what´s wrong???
I write to : nalini.assistent@gmail.com
and in the subject line:
Kiss of Snow ARC Contest

Can anybody help me?

kylie said...

Denise - could it be the misspelling with "assitant." On your post you used "assistent." So the email addy should read: nalini.assistant@gmail.com

Good luck!

Denise said...

Thanks Kylie, but no, there had been no mispelling! I even tried two different mail programs! I always get the stupid failure notice!
Normally I'm not too stupid to send an email :-))

kylie said...

I'm sorry to hear that - there could be a number of reasons for the failure. Are you using a Yahoo or Gmail acct? Have you tested the acct by sending yourself a message?

kandj7299 said...

I can't wait to read Hawk's story! I hope I win!!

Denise said...

Thanks again, Kylie!!
After I tried it over my gmail and gmx accounts I now tried it over the contact site on the homepage and it seems I was successful (hopefully ;-)

joeyjhg2 said...

Anonymous said...

I have REALLY enjoyed your books!! LOVE them....I have to admitt I am not excited about Hawk and Sinnena. So much so that I am thinking of skiping this one. I know shame on me but I love hawk's roll but she does nothing for me :(
