Happy weekend instant contest!

So, I have some shiny new ARC author copies of DOUBLE CROSS and a few MIND GAMES, too!  Yee-ha! It's contest time! I'll be giving away FIVE books over the next 24 hours.  

If you win a Double Cross ARC, I'd love it if you posted a review somewhere over the next 2 or 3 weeks. Examples: Goodreads, an online bookseller like Amazon, B&N or Powells or any other, or your blog. Just a request; you don't have to. 

Directions: 
Leave a comment to be entered, saying: 
  1. Which book you want to win: Double Cross or Mind Games (if you haven't read Mind Games, you should definitely start with that one! This is a series you want to read in order.) 
  2. Leave your email address if it's not easily found from your profile or whatever. If you prefer not to, that's fine - I'll announce winners here on Saturday and you can contact me. You'll have until Monday midnight CST.
Contest closes 10 am CST tomorrow (Saturday 9/18) and I'll send out copies as soon as I get addresses. Some could go out Saturday. Open internationally. Final judge will be Random.org.

PS: There are also chances to win by signing up for my newsletter. And, *coughcough* that is also the only place you can get a sneak peek of chapter one on Monday. Because I'm a total copycat of Lara Adrian!

DOUBLE CROSS!!!! Umm, is it obvious enough which book I'd like to win? You could count on me to post a review on my blog, Amazon and Goodreads :-)

LOL! I'm entering on behalf of my beloved boyfriend, who has at least three times asked me whether I got an ARC of Double Cross.

We'll have him review it on Katidom, if we win.

Mysteriousrose said...

Thank you so much for the chance to win and for making it open for international readers.

I would love to win Double Cross but Mind Games would be great too.

INCiDeNT (Kayleigh) said...

Since I don't have Mind Games in my hot little hands as of yet, I'll go with that one. But if I get an ARC of Double Cross, I'll invest in the first too. Win-win situation from where I'm sitting. ;D

TY for making it international! :)

Tamara Morgan said...

Double Cross, please. LOVED the first one. (And posted a Goodreads review, so you know I'm good for another one.)

I'd love to read Double Cross and review it on Goodreads, Amazon and Twitter (my blog doesn't get enough hits :) ) email is yvevil at gmail.

Zombie Joe said...

I could use some Double Cross, almost through Mind Games (bumped you up the stack of TBR when you were talking stopping 'round here). I have been slacking on the reviews, but if I get an ARC I will review both to my blog and cross-post to Goodreads, Barnes & Noble and Amazon. (Benefits of being a web monkey is that this is natural for me.)

Magdalen said...

Of course I *want* an ARC of Double Cross, but I actually want to buy it with real dollars so you get the 63 cents in royalties.

And I'm not saying that to suck up.

So please don't enter me in the contest. I can wait. Barely. (Still not sucking up though.)

Fit_Cat said...

I love Mind Games and I am counting the days to Sept. 28 for Double Cross release.
I would love to win Double Cross.
I live in Istanbul, Turkey but I'll be in Florida in 2 weeks visiting my family.
I don't have a blog but I could write a review on Amazon :)
Thanks!!!

I would love either one of your books! Even if I was hog-tyed, slap me with a wet noodle, tickled my tootsies and forced me to choose I say "Quit it so more," only kidding, I still say " Give me either one, you silly fool"...They both are great books! Just look who wrote them...Carolyn Crane! Enough Said! LOL!

Tez Miller said...

I realise that by requesting DOUBLE CROSS, that means Little CJ's doppelganger will hunt me down in Australia, and team up with the first Little CJ to both eyeball me to death.

But I figure - third time time lucky. So I'll be fine this second time!

I dare you, Little CJ and your doppelgangers! ;-)

I'd totally do reviews on Amazon and Goodread - Library Thing, B&N, Borders, Shelfari....not to mention my own blogs. :)

I'm looking forward to reading your next book (even if I have to buy it!) and of course, I'll review it (even if I have to buy it, lol)
