Weekend Giveaway

BlueIn the last couple of weeks, I featured an interview with Lou Aronica and a review of his new book, Blue. I mentioned that I ended up getting a second copy, so now I have one to give away. I use a random number generator to pick winners.

Here are the rules:

  • The giveaway is open from the time you see this post until 11:59 p.m. Pacific on Sunday, January 23.
  • You must be a follower to enter. This is on the honor system; I know that there are a lot of RSS followers, for example.
  • You must leave me three sentences on the idea of "blue." For example, what makes you blue? How do you combat the blues? What's your favorite shade of blue? Your favorite get-over-the-blues book or song?
  • You must leave me your contact e-mail. I highly recommend that you use something like myaddress AT someprovider DOT com to hide your address from spambots. I'll e-mail you later in the week.
  • Unfortunately, winners will need to provide me with a U.S. mailing address to win (AFO-type addresses and P.O. boxes are okay). I get to the post office about every other week, sometimes every three, depending on weather.
Good luck!

  2. Blue moon ice cream always chases away the blues, because it reminds me of being a kid. My favorite color of blue is cerrulean blue. One of my favorite sayings is once in a blue moon.

  3. I'd love for you to review my debut fantasy novel, Initiate, first in the series, The Unfinished Song: Initiate. If you are interested (and if you don't mind an ebook format), you can email me at I can send you a review copy.

  4. Fantastic, this one sounds great! I love to read to combat the blues. Play with my cats or hedgehogs to get rid of the blues. Listen to my favorite album and dance around. Eat lots of ice cream with peanut butter. lol There are plenty of things to combat the blues. My favorite color is blue. Really any shade. I have a blue butterfly tattoo.

  5. Hi Tara Maya,

    I wish I could say yes, but I'm afraid that most of my reviews reflect reading that I did in the last six months, and I don't see a future window when I might be able to commit to a read. Some new responsibilities simply have me booked up for this year. Thank you so much for the offer, though. You might visit the blogs of my followers list; I know there are a lot of fantasy fans there! Best wishes.
