Happy Belated Birthday to My Blog… Let’s Celebrate With a Megan Hart Book Giveaway!

in Megan Hart, News

WINNER ANNOUNCEMENT!!! –> Congratulations Kandyce Harris! You win a signed copy of Megan Hart’s Virtue and Vice book!!

I did it again. I missed my blog’s first birthday (a couple of years ago), and then I just missed it’s third! It’s official. I AM a bad blog mommy!!

My blog’s birthday was February 28th. But guess what! Middle of February, I did have a blog celebration when I met up with some of my best book buds, AND AND!! They presented me with the most gorgeous blog scrapbook (personally crafted by Sherry) that I will be featuring in a post. You’ll get to “virtually” look through it with me. It’s just awesome!!

AND!!! AND!! Megan Hart sent me an awesome box of goodies to giveaway. Bookmarks, temporary tattoos… all sorts of trinkets. And best of all? FIVE signed books (the latest book in her Order of Solace Series – “Virtue and Vice”). She said:

 ”It’s the fourth in the series, but none of them are in order so can easily be read before the others.”

I will be giving them away in some near-future posts, but right now, right off the bat, I will be giving away ONE of the signed books (and some miscellaneous random Megan Hart memorabilia) in this very post!

How to enter for a chance to win a copy? Just leave a comment below, and this Friday night (Friday March 16th 2012) by 9pm EST, I will randomly select one winner.

The winner will be contacted and will have 48hrs to respond with a mailing address (must respond by Sunday March 18th 2012 – 9pm EST at the latest), so if you are picked, do not delay or you will lose your chance.

Here’s a suggestion. If you want to enter to win the book, leave your comment, and you may also pre-send me your mailing address, by email, in case you do win (please don’t post it in your comment). In a couple of my past giveaways, there were some issues with getting the mailing address on time, so to avoid this, if I pick your name, and I already have your address, then all is good. Sorry for my international readers, this is a open to U.S. residents only (but you’re welcome to comment and join in any time!!).

And while you’re here, if you haven’t already joined me (actually “us”, ’cause we’re a big group now) on Facebook and Twitter, whatcha waiting’ for?!

Happy Birthday to my new daily obsession – needing to know what Maryse thinks of a book! I found a whole group of people who are as addicted to reading as I am – no one else in my family seems to understand (and they don’t get the whole romance books either!).

DebLI March 14, 2012 at 10:30 AM

Happy Birthday Blog! This is also my first comment on this site. I just recently found it trying to find some good reads and that is exactly what I found on this site, and now I’M HOOKED! I check your blog almost everyday. A lot of my friends don’t really get me because i don’t read “the norm” type of books. I just lovee paranormal, the intense romances, and of course those juicy parts. So Happy Birthday to your blog and thanks for confirming that I am not the only one who gets a little crazy, obsessed, and sometimes a little flustered over books.

**Chris** March 14, 2012 at 12:41 PM

patricia March 14, 2012 at 3:11 PM

“I thought I understood it, that I could grasp it, but I didn’t, not really. Only the smudgeness of it; the pink-slippered, all-containered, semi-precious eagerness of it. I didn’t realize it would sometimes be more than whole, that the wholeness was a rather luxurious idea. Because it’s the halves that halve you in half. I didn’t know, don’t know, about the in-between bits; the gory bits of you, and the gory bits of me.”
;) (look I learned…it teehee)

Anya March 14, 2012 at 3:34 PM

I’d like to enter the giveaway! Happy belated blog b-day:) Your blog is an awesome part of my day everday;)

Yay!!! Happy Birthday! Thanks to you…I’ve come across some fabulous new authors!!!!

Kathryn Hughett March 14, 2012 at 5:36 PM

Congratulations on 3 years of the best PNR blogsite ever. I’ve looked at other book blogs and in my opinion yours is the best. I love your search feature. Your site isn’t all garbaged up with side panels that are totally distracting. I love the color scheme. Its all so easy on the eyes and easy to read. I am curious about how you support this site. I’m wondering where’s the kick back because having a website isn’t free and the time you spend on it as well as trying to read all those books is a lot. Thank you so much for all of your effort.

arwen March 14, 2012 at 6:11 PM

Happy Birthdayyyyyyy!!!!!!

Thank you Maryse for your efforts with this site. Your blog is one of my favourite things of the day. I hope you keep doing it for many more years…

Jessie D March 14, 2012 at 9:12 PM

Happy birthday!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you for continuing this site. I would never have been able to find all these amazing books without you. I can’t imagine my life without knowing Fifty. :-)

Lucia March 14, 2012 at 9:40 PM

HBD to my favorite place to get the skinny on the latest and greatest books out there!

Happy Birthday! I’m so grateful that my Google search for “What to read after Sookie Stackhouse” brought me to you. You’ve really changed my world this past year! You have helped me discover a new genre of books that I LOVE and in the process, I’ve rediscovered my love for reading. You’re the reason I’ve always got a Kindle or iPad close at hand, and my Amazon spending has exploded in the last year. Much love for all you do!

Tammie March 15, 2012 at 5:19 PM

Happy Birthday to the Best Book Blog ever.
