Birthday Giveaways

I am another year older and wiser! Well, okay, so I’m not sure about the “wiser” part, but I am definitely older.

Had a fun and relaxing time last Saturday, starting with a day at the spa and ending with a fun potluck party at home with friends.

Thanks to the busy weekend, I wasn’t able to prepare my scheduled post for today, so I’ve decided to just remind you about my awesome giveaways instead.

 

I’m giving away a KINDLE copy of Lydia Kang’s CONTROL.

CassaStar and CassaFire Giveaway Winners

Last month’s Spotlight Week featured one of my favorite bloggy buddies Alex Cavanaugh and his amazing books CassaStar and CassaFire.

I had such fun reviewing his books and featuring an author interview with Alex. I even managed to coerce convince him to send me an author photo.

To end that Spotlight Week with a bang, I announced a Giveaway.

Today, I get to reveal the winners of Alex Cavanaugh’s CassaStar and CassaFire.

I asked the participants of the giveaway to answer why they’d like to win a copy of the books in a creative way to increase their chances of winning.

Here are the most creative answers I’ve come across:

Powdered Toast Man says:

July 13, 2012 at 6:38 am

I need those books because a witch put a spell on me and I am slowly going blind and I want those books to be the last ones I read.

Powdered Toast Man says:

July 13, 2012 at 6:41 am

I mentioned the giveaway on Twitter and Facebook as well made prank phone calls and told some strangers.

Sabrina A. Fish says:

July 13, 2012 at 7:04 am

I haven’t read his books, yet, and I figure that since we share a love for munching while we write…Alex on hot tamales while I “chain smoke” my carrots like a rabbit on speed…I definitely need a chance to win these books!

L.C. Frost says:

July 13, 2012 at 7:42 am

My Flat Stanley cut-out has gotten sadly misplaced, and I figure a book written by a ninja captain would be a fine companion on my various adventures. Also, such an object would need the capability to fly. I have little doubt CassaStar has that capability built-in.

Christine Rains says:

July 13, 2012 at 11:36 am

I have no air-conditioning. We’re in the middle of a heat wave. No relief in sight. Please put a bright spot in my day by sending a couple of good books my way.

Shelly says:

July 13, 2012 at 1:00 pm

Shelly really, really wants to win b/c she’s piss-pot-poor right now. And Alex’s book trailers made me salivate. And b/c I really, really like to read even though I’m slow sometimes. Please, please pick me. Please.

My grandson Caden is an advanced reader. He loves sci-fi. He never asks me to get him anything. He enjoys drawing with me. I don’t spend money on him because I can’t. He says my time is a valuable gift! I’d love to give him, not only the books, because I know we will read them and share our stories about them, but also because I see that Caden can write to Alex and Alex will write back, and that is the most valuable aspect of the exchange! Caden also batted .497 in Pony League, and his all-star team is playing Arizona next week too!!!

Justine Dell says:

Well, my reason is simple…besides the fact that I would trek over mountains filled with eye-eating gorillas and through the jungle that sucks out your soul to get a good copy of a great book….my daughter and I can’t share. Everytime we buy a book, we must have a copy on the Kindle and hard copy. We are so selfish.

michelle says:

July 17, 2012 at 3:48 am

I’d REALLY REALLY like to win because I’m sci-fi challenged, I’ve never read a sci-fi novel in my life… but I reckon that the Cassa series will be the turning point… the moment of conversion…

Kathleen says:

July 25, 2012 at 10:29 am

I would love to win these books because I have NOT read them yet, even though they are both on my wish list. The main reason I want to win them though is because I am almost finished with my rocket ship and need something for the journey to prove that Stargates do exist, but they were all taken over by the Cylons. It’s going to be a long ride and what better way to live the sci-fi dream than with some awesome sci-fi books?

I had such a hard time picking from all these wonderful answers that I had to ask help from my magic box (my magic bowl was out of commission).

My magic box

The magic box spewed out two lucky names.


Congratulations, Powdered Toast Man, you win a copy of CassaStar!

And Congratulations L.C. Frost, you win a copy of CassaFire!

BUT WAIT!

Because I’m feeling generous, and because we wish to encourage the younger generation to keep on reading and loving books, I’m also giving Terry Toes a copy of CassaStar to give to her nephew Caden!

Congratulations Terry!

I’ll be emailing you all shortly with words of congratulations and some instructions for claiming your prizes.

This month, I’ll be training the Spotlight on another favorite author and her wonderful book.

Tune in next week to find out more about YA Author Sara Wilson Etienne and get a chance to win a copy of HARBINGER!
