Three counts of pimping with intent

I love the buy books for the holidays movement. Especially the genre stuff we read. I mean, your money goes SO far! And here are some contests for cool new releases...usually I don't do the contest pimping thing if I don't have evidence the books will actually be good, or ideally, if I've read them. These, I have evidence.

Exhibit 1:
What a Scoundrel Wants by Carrie Lofty

Evidence the book is any good:
Oh, reader, look past the over-the-top man chest cover. Scoundrel, which features Will Scarlet from Robin Hood, has gotten a lot of positive early reads, including an excellent rating from Book Smugglers "Verdict: BOTH action-driven and character-driven story makes What a Scoundrel Wants a fantastic read. Prepare to fall in love with the hero." Read review here.

Anne Aguirre is running this contest; read about it here.

Exhibit 2: Midnight Sins by Cynthia Eden.

Evidence the book is any good:
Positive buzz on this one, where a shifter detective works with a partner is human who doesn't believe in paranormals...but then the human partner unwittingly falls for the suspect in their latest case, a succubus.

Rachel over at What I am Reading, who is a kind of conneisseur of the thrill/paranormal romance genre, loves this book: "Cynthia Eden has easily climbed to the top of the list as one of my favorite authors and I eagerly look forward to her next book. Overall, Midnight Sins is full of romance, erotica, mystery and paranormal elements that kept me intrigued and in suspense until the final explosive conclusion." Read review here.

Exhibit 3:
The Book Binge Demon Bound Contest! There is still time to enter this contest; just order or buy the book by November 30th and send Book Binge proof you did. (details here.) From a gambling perspective, your odds here are high because you have to actually buy the book to enter.

Evidence the book is any good:
Firsthand. I've actually started reading this one, and it's fantastic. And pretty much everybody else seems to think so, too. These Guardians tales are fun, exciting, smart and sexy.

CJ - I finally finished Kushiel! It ends with quite a bang!

So now I can actually pay attention to your shameless, and quite possibly felonious pimping!

I love to pimp also!

Carolyn Jean said...

Kati: Yay! I can't wait to see your thoughts. This was such a cool challenge!

KB: What's that? Are you suggesting I now pimp out the feather duster? As a way of beating this bad economy? Or is that what YOU had planned for him? I think it is. I think it is good that I have him, so I can PROTECT him from you!
