OTHERSPHERE Launch Giveaway!

I can't believe OTHERSPHERE will be out in just over a week on December 31!

To celebrate, I'm having a big ol' giveaway. Two people can win, and each of them will get:

A signed ARC of OTHERSPHERE. (I also promise to hand-write in the final five words of the book, which are missing from the ARC.)



Earrings with one of my favorite quotes on them, from Mary Shelley's FRANKENSTEIN. One earring says "Beware for I am fearless," and the other says "And therefore powerful."

The quote makes me think of my main character Dez, when she's in her tiger-form. And maybe a little of that fearlessness and power will transfer to you when you wear them (or, if you don't wear earrings, to the person you give them to!) The background behind the quote in the earring is literary text. The earrings are nickel-free, for pierced ears, made of brass and clear magnifying glass, and are 21mm wide and 45mm long from the top of the earwire. (I had three sets made, kept one for myself because I love them so much, and am giving away the other two.)



A set of tiger notebooks (also pictured above in a patch of sunlight on my rug), one small and one medium. These are thin, soft-back notebooks made from 100% recycled materials featuring a tiger on the front and back from Eberhardtpress.org. The small one is 3.5" x 4.75" with 40 unlined pages. The medium one is 5" x 7"with 44 unlined pages. (I have two sets of these and kept a set for myself too!)

The contest starts tonight at midnight and ends at midnight on Monday, December 30. Sorry, but it has to be US only because I'm tapped out on shipping this holiday season.

You can enter by commenting on this blog, liking my Facebook page, or tweeting about the contest, via the Rafflecopter widget below. You'll get the most points for commenting, less for tweeting, and even less for Facebook. I figured that way it's a bit fairer for those who are not on Twitter or Facebook.

Voila!

Thanks so much for a wonderful 2013, everyone! Ending it with a book launch ain't half-bad for me. And in a way it's the launch of my new year as well. Here's to a fabulous 2014 for us all!

I didn't get as much reading done as I had planned this year, but oh well, 2013 was still a great year. I read some fantastic books. Now, I just have to get all the reviews up before the end of the year. Hmmm....we shall see. Love, just love the earring quotes!!! Thanks so much for the giveaway!!!

This year was practically an emotional roller coaster, it left a great after-feeling when the ride was over. I went through rough times in the beginning. Now reaching the ending of 2013, I feel absolutely great and thankful. I wonder if I'll be going on another ride for 2014?

My 2013 was terrific! I went to Ecuador, went to college, and had a billion and one laughs.

As much as I would love to be positive here, I just can't be. 2013 actually starting Halloween of 2012 thru 2013 was a bad year for our family. We were homeless twice. My husband's business failed because his partner died. He was let go from another job which is why he was starting a business. My health has taken a turn for the worse. My daughters are awsome through it all, even though they don't get alot for Christmas or birthdays they are still grateful for what they do get. Dad is back to work and we found a house to rent (granted the house should be condemned)but we are all together!

What a fun giveaway! Best of luck with your launch. :) 2013 was a pretty great year. I started writing full-time (eeeek!) and finished one WiP and most of a second WiP. Pretty exciting! Happy holidays!

My 2013 was a rollercoaster of good and bad. I don't think you really want the depressing details on Christmas Eve, so I'll skip them.

Kayla Michelle said...

2013 was a fairly good year; I read a lot of amazing books and met tons of awesome people!

Justine said...

It was fine. Neither good nor bad.

Katie H said...

2013 certainly had it's ups and downs. Here's to a brighter new year!

Rebecca said...

My 2013 wasn't so good, but I'm ecstatic for 2014 because I know and hope it will be so much better! I am excited for the opportunity to start over and wish everyone a great new year!
