Contest #1: Author Goodies *Closed*

Happy Two Years To Me!

If you didn't catch my earlier post about this event, this month I'm celebrating two years with my blog. To celebrate I'll be having several contests this month. This being the first one.

Back February I started contacting Authors to see if they'd be interested in donating any type of goodies/swag for a goodie box. Well I got a very positive reply back. 36 Authors donated signed books, bookmarks, cover flats an the like. So the original one box of goodies got turned into six.

How to enter: To enter just leave a comment on this post. The contest will run from all week. I will post the winners at midnight on June 6th. This contest is open to all. It's important if you don't have a blogger account to leave an email address where you can be reached.

Prize #1:
Tote of goodies from Lyn Armstrong. This prize also includes
a signed copy of The Last Celtic Witch.


Prize #2:
Signed Copies of...
Devil in a Kilt by Sue-Ellen Welfonder
Nicholas by Elizabeth Amber
Dragonborn by Jade Lee


Prize #3:
Signed Copies of...
Darkness Revealed by Alexander Ivy
Happy Hour at Casa Dracula by Marta Acosta
Kiss of Darkness by Jennifer St. Giles


Prize #4
Signed Copies of...
A Rush of Wings by Adrian Phoenix
In the Blood by Adrian Phoenix
Club Hell T-shirt


Prize #5:
Signed Copies of...
Grimspace by Ann Aguirre
Would-Be Witch by Kimberly Frost
His Wicked Sins by Eve Silver


Prize #6:
Signed Copies of
Kiss of Darkness by Jennifer St. Giles
Seducing a Scottish Bride by Sue-Ellen Welfonder
