Winner of BALLAD and a chance to win a Kindle

The winner of Maggie Stiefvater's Ballad is...Sylvia! Congrats!

There are still six open Blogtoberfest contests, so check them out:

Stephanie Kuehnert and Ballads of Suburbia
Carrie Jones and an ARC of Captivate
Jennifer Echols and The Ex-Games
PC Cast and Tempted
Jeri Smith-Ready and an ARC of Shade
Rachel Vincent and My Soul to Take or My Soul to Save (winner's choice)

Speaking of giveaways, the Fangs Fur and Fey urban fantasy community (of which I am a member) just celebrated its three-year Blog-iversary. To share the joy, we're giving away $700 worth of prizes, including twenty-two $20 gift cards to Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Borders, Books-A-Million, or Powell's (winner's choice).

The grand prize is a Kindle reader (retail value $259)!

So go visit Fangs Fur & Fey to find out how to win. It's almost criminally easy to do. Deadline is November 13.

And speaking of FFF, I'm doing my usual Monday Topic of the Week today, and this week's topic is the Grim Reaper. Only not-so-Grim, not-so-Reapy sometimes.

Off to start the rewrite for Bring on the Night. I'm sad to leave the YA books behind for a few months, but dying to get me some Ciara and Shane action again!

Now playing: Snow Patrol - How to Be Dead

Congrats Sylvia!

Thanks for Blogtoberfest Jeri! My bank account hates you but Amazon & B&N LOVE you!

Can't wait to read all the new stuff you're writing.


PS I love Snow Patrol - for some reason you're not supposed to admit to that - they are apparently "uncool" but I love them!

Blogtoberfest was so great - such wonderful introductions. Thank you Jeri.

And I'm heading over to Fangs Fur and Fey. Like you way, would be criminal not to.

Karen: I know, Snow Patrol is officially uncool, but I love them, anyway. So do Aura and Logan from SHADE, but they won't admit it to their punk friends because they'll get made fun of. ;-)
