Paranormal Book Giveaway from NYT Bestseller

Thea and Ana over at The Book Smuggler are having multiple contests this month where you can win free books.  Most of the contests involve simply leaving a comment on their blog in order to be entered.  For some weird reason, blog contest don’t usually get a lot of entrants, so if you want to win free stuff, this is the way to go.

Contest 1:  The Book Smugglers are currently in cahoots with bestselling author, Nalini Singh, to give away two of her paranormal romance books, The Magical Christmas Cat and An Enchanted Season.  Leave a comment on this post before Saturday, December 13th, at 11pm PST for your chance to win.

Contest 2: The Book Smugglers have also teamed up with Michael Stone to offer you a chance at your free copy of his book of four novellas of dark fantasy, Fourtold, as well as Graham Joyce’s Three Ways to Snog an Alien (funny excerpt from the description:  “The 3 ways to snog an alien are: Don’t; Don’t; and, Don’t”).  You’ll have to work a little harder for this one and leave a comment with a suggested title for the Irish-crime-with-a-fantasy-element anthology that Michael Stone is currently working on. 

For your chance at a free copy of Fourtold and Three Ways to Snog an Alien, leave your comment on this post.  And don’t worry — it appears that all commenters will be entered into the drawing, whether their suggested title is dripping with awesomeness or notsomuch.  I’m not sure what the deadline is on this one, but it looks like the drawing will take place in the new year.

Keep checking The Book Smuggler for more contests throughout the month of December.

With Intent to Commit Horror

With Intent to Commit Horror is a website authored by librarian, Greg Fisher (also known as The Undead Rat), with the purpose of helping people find their next good horror novel.  It’s very well organized with author lists, series lists, theme lists, etc.  (Would you expect anything else from a librarian?) 

This site is a goldmine for horror fans like myself.  I don’t even know how he keeps up with all this information even if he is a librarian.  The posts, like all good blogs, are also written in a warm and personal style, and you learn a little bit about the blog author, as well as about the book authors.  For example, after his wife’s computer crashed and she took over his, he writes:

“Her late computer was a workhorse while mine, as we discovered crash after crash, was little more than a prancing pony.”

This blog is well worth a visit, so definitely check it out.
