4500+ Likes on Facebook Page Celebration (giveaway)



Woooooo Hoooooo! Last month in December we reached 4500 likes on the Facebook page and I said I would do a giveaway come the New Year! Well, it's the New Year and it's time to P-A-R-T-Y!!! Grab some noise makers and let everyone know!

Thank you to everyone who has liked the page! I know a lot of you have been with us since the beginning. The page would not be what it is without you. Thank you for all your suggest, recommendations, and random book chat. It's really nice to be able to connect with people with the same interest.

So, this celebration is for you! Grab some virtual punch from the fountain and some wonderful virtual cake and enjoy!

A BIG thank you to ALL of the authors. Without you this page would definitely not exist. Also, without you we wouldn't have worlds, lives, horrors, romances, or futures to escape to. So here is a standing ovation to you!

Now what kind of celebration would this be without a giveaway? One person will win a book of their choice up to $10 from the Book Depository and another person will win a Hardback copy of Immortal Beloved by Cate Tiernan. Just fill out the Rafflecopter below. Giveaway ends on January 31st!
We reached 4,650 likes now! So I am adding 3 more prizes!

Another book of your choice up to $10 from The Book Depository has been added. Kindly donated from our reviewer Jen.

An ebook of Genesis by Kristie Cook:
A father who reveals his truth.
Twins who take different paths—one light, one dark.
Angels who have plans for them both
And Demons who do as well.
So the Earthly battle for souls ignites…

A tale that is over 2,000 years old, this is the story of the Amadis beginnings.




An ebook of Promise by Kristie Cook:
Alexis Ames has a life full of promise…but not all promises can be kept.

When Alexis Ames is attacked by creatures that can’t be real, she decides it’s time she learns who she really is, with or without the help of her mother, who guards their family’s secrets closely. After meeting the inhumanly attractive, multi-talented Tristan Knight, however, Alexis retreats behind her fa├žade of normalcy…until she discovers he’s not exactly normal either. Then their secrets begin to unravel.

Their union brings hope and promise to her family’s secret society, the Angels’ army, and to the future of mankind. But it also incites a dangerous pursuit by the enemy – Satan’s minions and Tristan’s creators. After all, Alexis and Tristan are a match made in Heaven and in Hell.

Oh! Also, for the New Year I added something new to the blog. You can now subscribe via email! It's over on the left hand side.

HAPPY READING!
