These are the ones I’m giving away!!! Maybe you’ll win ‘em?

BREAKING NEWS UPDATE – Dec 18th 2015!!!! My dear friend Natasha from http://natashaisabookjunkie.com has THE THIRD book from this original publisher and is donating it to this giveaway!!!

*SQUEEEEE*!! Thank you SO MUCH Natasha. :D Now the giveaway has officially been upgraded to the complete trilogy!!

She says:

Natasha’s copy that she is adding to this giveaway! Now the giveaway is for the original complete trilogy!! :D Thank you Natasha!

“If you’re missing the third book, I’m happy to gift you my extra copy, Maryse. It’s the one that I first read and a few of my friends too so it’s not “new”, but it’s still impossibly hard to find these days.”

Oh… this? This is just a fun little giveaway. ;)

I know… many of us already HAVE the print copies of our beloved Fifty Shades of Grey. I know it.

But… did you guys know that before it got picked up by Random House and went MASSIVE, it was actually printed by a smaller publishing company? They had a few small print runs of the trilogy, in various quantities, and from what I can tell (through research online), I have found us the first edition, but I believe a second print run, before it went the way of BIG-TIME “traditionally published”.

Now don’t “quote” me on this 100%, as I’d love for someone to point me to a proper collector’s guide of what is what, print-wise, with these, but I think I’ve got it right. :D

And you know… a die-hard fan that collects paperback (or hard covers) of their favorites will definitely appreciate an “early” print run, from a small publisher, of a larger-than-life best seller, right? I know I’m STOKED that I found these. Just look at the size difference!!!

Now MY next step will be to get my copies signed… Eeeeep!

But! I have one set (one of each) of Fifty Shades of Grey and Fifty Shades Darker that are the The Writer’s Coffee Shop Publishing House edition – the original publisher of this trilogy and I’m giving it away to one lucky reader here!!!

Click it to watch the silly video. LOL!!!! :P

Now for the giveaway!!

These are the ones I’m giving away!!! Maybe you’ll win ‘em?

How to enter for a chance to win? Just leave a comment below and let me know your favorite, most coveted book prize (already in your collection, or that you want badly), and by 10pm EST, Sunday December 20th 2015, I will randomly select one winner for this giveaway.

The winner will be contacted and will have 48hrs to respond with a mailing address, so if you are picked, do not delay or you will lose your chance.

Open to U.S. only however ALL are welcome to comment. :D !!!

My favorite book prize is a signed copy of Outlander by Diana Gabaldon and Ronald D. Moore. Also got a cool t-shirt that reads Outlander on the front and Real Men Wear Kilts on the back! :)

Imani December 17, 2015 at 5:48 PM

I would really want the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy or the Addicted Series books with all of the couples books- including Coballoway and Raisy.

Theresa December 17, 2015 at 5:52 PM

Believe it or not, I have NO coveted prizes. To further this dilemma, I have copies of Fifty but it was years after they came out that I bought and read.
I do try to buy a few signed copies of books. Thanks, love your blog

Jill December 17, 2015 at 5:56 PM

I have never won a book prize:(
This is one I would love to win!!!!!
Like so many have previously said, it’s what started my reading frenzy again AND led me to your blog- which I am forever grateful

Katie Lowden December 17, 2015 at 6:02 PM

I would so love these! I don’t have these in print. My prized book would be a signed The Sea of Tranquility! Still wanting the indie cover!! Lol

Gabby Gerhart December 17, 2015 at 6:18 PM

My favorite has to be my signed copy of Bared to you by Sylvia Day. I stood for an hour in line to get a signed copy in nyc last year! I also have way too many favorite books to pick from its too hard to choose one!

vox December 17, 2015 at 6:39 PM

I recently won something from an author that I haven’t received yet, and I have a feeling it will be quite coveted. But this giveaway. This giveaway is pretty fabulous.

Megan Gallt December 17, 2015 at 6:44 PM

Definitely How to Kill a Rockstar!!

Amy P. December 17, 2015 at 6:46 PM

Pick me.. Pick me… Pretty please

Tarin December 17, 2015 at 7:10 PM

Unfortunately, I don’t have any coveted book prizes. However, Fifty Shades Trilogy was what made me a bookahalic! I have read endless amounts of books ever since I’ve read these. My husband MADE me buy a kindle because I was spending crazy amounts of money on paperback books! Whoops! Lol!! I did borrow out the first book to a friend and never got it back. :( so I currently don’t have the complete series anymore. I would love love to win these books because they will FOREVER be in my brain!!!!

Trisha December 17, 2015 at 7:11 PM

I’ve never won a book prize! I would love the fifty shades books! I had them when they first came out and they burnt up in a house fire I had. Thes would be awesome so have!

Karen December 17, 2015 at 7:12 PM

My favorite book prize was a signed copy of Slammed by Colleen Hoover!

Susan December 17, 2015 at 7:13 PM

Bridget December 17, 2015 at 7:24 PM

I have a personalized copy of Fallen Too Far by Abbi Glines that I won a few years ago on a giveaway. Only thing I’ve ever won and it was awesome! I would LOVE to have these copies of Fifty Shades!! I actually read the first one when it was still a very small time book but never bought a print copy. Boo.

Leilani December 17, 2015 at 7:25 PM

I never win so this would be my most coveted! Love me some Christian!

Kelly Sullivan December 17, 2015 at 7:32 PM

Hanna December 17, 2015 at 7:33 PM

Sorry. Hope you don’t mind but my first comment didn’t come over

Heather davenport December 17, 2015 at 7:44 PM

My favorite signed Eaglw Elite books that were given to me by the beautiful and amazing Rachel Van Dyken.

Lauren Runow December 17, 2015 at 7:46 PM

Honestly, this would be the first giveaway I’ve ever entered! As an author I don’t feel right entering normally but how could I pass up at least trying for these! My goodness I would die if I got these! Thanks for the chance!

Silvia December 17, 2015 at 7:49 PM

Thx for the chance! FSoG is one of my fave series of all time!
My fave “prize” was a paperback by CD Reiss who autographed Beg and she drew a little picture of the LA skyline with a few palm trees thrown in! I was very surprised to receive it in the mail. She’s very gracious.

Kat P December 17, 2015 at 7:51 PM

Paula December 17, 2015 at 7:56 PM

This is my first book giveaway. But, Fifty Shades of Grey is the set of books that started my love for romance.

Kathy P December 17, 2015 at 8:03 PM

I too have never won a book prize. But my most prized autograph is from when Hugh Grant was big and my college rookie got it for me. I am a sucker for a British accent!

Kendra December 17, 2015 at 8:04 PM

I love you, but I can’t pick a favorite!

Jenny Rapp December 17, 2015 at 8:05 PM

The FSOG trilogy would be my most coveted collection. I have read the ebooks at least 15x (each one). Thanks for the chance.

Dena December 17, 2015 at 8:07 PM

My favorite book that I received signed was Jason by Laurel K Hamilton. However that might change when I get a signed copy of feverborn “fingers crossed” by Karen Marie Monning

Jennifer December 17, 2015 at 8:09 PM

I would have to say On the Island is one of my favorites but who can choose just one? :) I also love Sweet Gum Tree and She’s Come Undone.

Sherry D :) December 17, 2015 at 8:10 PM

Not in the giveaway, but my favorite is my signed books from Tina Reber AND JR Ward!!

Good luck everyone :)

Tamra December 17, 2015 at 8:11 PM

What I have that is my most prized possession is an original cover,signed Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay. What I want more than anything is a book from the Harry Potter series signed by J.K.(I know wishful thinking. Maybe one day I’ll get a Christmas miracle)

kim December 17, 2015 at 8:16 PM

Never won a prize believe it or not and I have never been to a book signing even though I’m quite sure I’m Amazons best customer, I read several books a week. So I would love to be a winner!
Plus, my 50th birthday is Dec.25!

Melissa Henry December 17, 2015 at 8:22 PM

I have a couple of hardcover books signed by JR Ward that I absolutely adore. Love me some brothers!

AngieG December 17, 2015 at 8:26 PM

My signed copy of Grey! I received it from my monthly bookworm box. So awesome!

Maryse December 17, 2015 at 8:35 PM

Happy upcoming birthday Kim!!! :D

Crystal Brill December 17, 2015 at 8:37 PM

So hard to choose my most prized book, but I’d say my signed copy of Karina Halle’s Sins & Needles. Absolutely love her & her books.

Marisa Brown December 17, 2015 at 8:39 PM

Hi Marsye!!! I don’t know if I can pick ONE book that is a coveted favorite…so I’m going to say that I covet my collection of Anita Blake Vampire Hunter by Laurell K. Hamilton!! :D My sweet spot favorite is Twilight by Meg Cabot. For a young adult novel, it gets me every time that I read it.

Sharon December 17, 2015 at 8:47 PM

My coveted book prize was an emailed copy of the original ending to Thoughtless, sent to me by SC Stephens before she and Kellan went HUGE. Sadly, it was on a device that was reformatted and is now lost forever. Oh, and a Velvet Glove book by Sean Michaels. That one is a treasure.

Shera December 17, 2015 at 9:06 PM

My prized books are signed The Hearts Series by LH Cosway. Thanks!Love your blog!

Kim L December 17, 2015 at 9:18 PM

OMG This would be my coveted book prize!!!!! It would be so awesome.
But I’ve I was excited when I won Karina Halle’s Racing the Sun

Annie December 17, 2015 at 9:19 PM

I would love to get my hands on a signed copy of Running Barefoot by Amy Harmon. It is one of her original books and is a hidden gem.

JennC December 17, 2015 at 9:22 PM

I would LOVE to win these books! I originally ordered them in the electronic form from this publisher! I love all of my books, they are all special in their own way!!

Rhonda Beyer December 17, 2015 at 9:23 PM

My holy grail would probably be a signed copy Sea of Tranquility by Katja Milay, but I would love the FSoG series. Thanks for the chance.

A Ruan December 17, 2015 at 9:24 PM

I do not have any prized printed books. Not that I did not want them but they are expensive and I cannot afford them with three sons in colleges. If I win 50 Shades books will be my most coveted books. The 50-Shades are my favorite books to begin with since I lost my book virginity to them. Such memorable books!

Nancy Parken December 17, 2015 at 9:37 PM

I have signed copies, but could never pick a favorite. I cherish them all equally. They are all pristine, because I read the ebook and not the signed book, so they stay beautiful. I don’t have any 50 Shades though.

Lisa bolton December 17, 2015 at 9:41 PM

Holy cow!! Thanks for the awesome giveaway. My favorite signed book is Creed by Kristen Ashley.

Deinera December 17, 2015 at 9:45 PM

My favorite piece right now is Good Omens signed by Terry Pratchett. I’m patiently waiting for a chance to get Neil Gaiman to sign to make it complete.

Kiki Chatfield December 17, 2015 at 9:51 PM

My favorite book prize, well all my M. Leighton Books are pretty special. I love these books and cherish them so much.

Janet December 17, 2015 at 10:00 PM

I once won a box of clementines and a frozen chicken as prizes at my school fair – but I guess these get consumed by the mouth not the eyes… Grey is one of my favorite re-reads and would be great to score! I would love to get a signed copy of ‘Outlander’. I’m on Book 6 and it’s gripping!

Eulisa December 17, 2015 at 10:08 PM

I’ve never win a book prize before. But I would love to have Nalini Singh’s Guild Hunter novel. Too bad it’s US only. :’(

bn100 December 17, 2015 at 10:20 PM

maybe a signed JK Rowling

Ellen Totten December 17, 2015 at 10:42 PM

I’ve never won anything so grand before. I’m a huge Fifty Shades of Grey fan. I’ve bought all her books and audio version as well as the FSOG video, but would love to win this amazing prize.

Dawn Bush December 17, 2015 at 10:59 PM

I would have to say…I would LOVE to have a signed set of The Bronze Horseman Trilogy or Harry Potter series!!

Patricia December 17, 2015 at 11:40 PM

I would love to have a signed copy of Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning. My prized possession is a signed copy of Beautiful Disaster;)

Karen December 17, 2015 at 11:50 PM

My absolute most cherished book I’d my indie copy of Hopeless that Colleen herself bought for me

Holley December 18, 2015 at 12:30 AM

All of my signed books are my favorite. I don’t have any of the fifty books in print but would love them.

Stephanie Moles Krayeski December 18, 2015 at 12:45 AM

What an Amazing Giveaway, Maryse! FSOG brought me back to my love of reading as an adult! While I read the Trilogy on my Kindle, I’d absolutely love to own a paperback copy from the original publisher! That’s a RARE Treasure! Ultimately, I hope to one day own a signed novel from one of my sentimental, all-time favorite series (from when I became an avid reader as an adult): FSOG Trilogy, Twilight Series, The Fever Series, or the Black Dagger Brotherhood Series. Happy Holidays to Everyone! ♥

Yvonne December 18, 2015 at 12:46 AM

My prized possession and one of my most loved books (the entire series really) is a signed copy of Karen Moning’s Burned.

Jenn December 18, 2015 at 12:52 AM

Zan December 18, 2015 at 1:04 AM

I treasure my autographed copies of the Crusher trilogy written by Erika’s husband Niall Leonard. The Crusher trilogy is an action-packed whodunit.

Kelly December 18, 2015 at 1:17 AM

I don’t have any signed books but what I would just LOVE would be either a signed copy of my fav book of all time Outlander or anything signed by Kristen Ashley one of my fav authors.

Emma Edwards December 18, 2015 at 1:18 AM


I haven’t won a book prize yet however I would locve to win a signed Eric of the next Karen Marie Moning fever book – due out in January but I would love to read it over the holidays lol. And and maybe a ticket to her release party weekend in New Orleans. I’d settle for the fifty shades books though at a push ha ha. I only have them in digital format so print copies would be great.

Molly December 18, 2015 at 1:19 AM

My most coveted book is an indie copy of Slammed by Colleen Hoover. It’s not signed but hopefully one day.

Diana December 18, 2015 at 2:23 AM

T. Brown December 18, 2015 at 6:04 AM

Too many too pick just one…. but …. right now I’m really enjoying the premonition series by Amy bartol! Total opposite of 50, right? ;) ~

Divya Ann December 18, 2015 at 6:51 AM

I don’t have any prize book but the book i have and adore the most would be the Harry Potter series as my mom gave them as a gift on my birthday. I don’t know why you want to give away the 50 shades trilogy but if are, then I would really like them cause i don’t have the books.( i read it online) Anyway, thank you for the chance and have a merry Christmas and a happy new year.

Michele H December 18, 2015 at 7:07 AM

I was forced to downsize when I moved to care for my ill mother. I gave away most of my books. Thank goodness for ebooks! My wish is to get the whole Virgin River collection signed by Robyn Carr.

jenn December 18, 2015 at 8:28 AM

I do not own Fifty Shades. I would love to have them.!!!!! Thanks for the giveaway

Danielle December 18, 2015 at 9:20 AM

My favorite of all time is Beautiful Disaster

Sally Prete aka SallyReadsTooMuchSoWhat December 18, 2015 at 11:05 AM

Okay I started collecting little by little through the years signed copies of my 5 star reads. I RECENTLY purchased MYSELF ( because men suck lol) for Christmas The Bronze Horseman Trilogy which we all know is next to impossible to get. When I saw she was selling signed books FINALLY I nearly had a heart attack!! Also my very awesome friend Kirsten surprised me with a signed copy of The Nightingale gahhhhhhhh I cried! I love each and every one of my books. I literally walk by the very small bookcase I have and smile at them CONSTANTLY!! I would LOVE to add EL James!! ARE YOU KIDDING!!! Hahahahahaha Merry Christmas Maryse! Luv ya!

Kim Ross December 18, 2015 at 11:18 AM

Sarah December 18, 2015 at 1:30 PM

My copy of A Wrinkle in Time signed by Madeleine L’Engle. She signed it “Tesser Well”. I am a huge E. L. James fan and I first read her books online before they were picked up by Vintage.

Lindsey December 18, 2015 at 2:37 PM

I don’t really have a favorite…but my dream is to have Nalini Singh sign anything…and I do mean anything. Napkin? Okay! My arm? Hell yeah!

Jean December 18, 2015 at 3:14 PM

The only book prize I’ve ever won was the book Untamed through Goodreads! Loved getting it before the release date and holding the actual book in my hand!

Cindy Myers December 18, 2015 at 3:18 PM

My favorite book prize was when I won a huge collection of Vi Keelands paperbacks. Thank you for the chance. <3

Susan Eclaire December 18, 2015 at 3:25 PM

My favourite prize would be winning an original indie version of Hopeless by Colleen Hoover. I managed to get it signed too :)

It’s a close one, but probably my set of aleatha romig’s consequences series.

Christina Ciabattoni December 18, 2015 at 3:36 PM

I am searching for a physical copy of On Every Street by Karina Halle

Kristy Petree December 18, 2015 at 3:37 PM

I don’t have many coveted prizes that I’ve *already* won. I won a copy of Tarryn Fisher’s “Mud Vein” that I actually had to use my creative juices (they runneth a little dry) to enter and win, so I’ll go with that. Thanks!

ERICA HOWELL December 18, 2015 at 3:41 PM

My favorite is a find at my local library. They were selling books for $.25 and I stumbled upon the first 3 books in the Outlander Series in Hardback. The best part is they were never read! The library purchased extra copies and the set I got was never put on the shelves!!!

Thank you in advance for the chance and Merry Christmas!!!

Abbie Young December 18, 2015 at 3:43 PM

My Harry Potter collection of course :P

Jessica December 18, 2015 at 3:48 PM

My most prized signed books are the 2 that started my obsession. The Mighty Storm aND Wethering the Storm. I won them in a giveaway 2 years ago. They are 100% responsible for my signed book obsession now.
Would absolutely love these babies. EL and Grey are the reason for my reading obsession now.

Corinne December 18, 2015 at 5:26 PM

A British first edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.

Laurie Osborne December 18, 2015 at 5:36 PM

My favorite is a signed copy of Bright Side, followed closely by signed copies of Nine Minutes and Out of Time

Dana December 18, 2015 at 5:43 PM

I’ve never won a book prize, but I love the fifty series… I was not a fan of reading at all and this series started my love for books! I’ve been hooked since.

Carol Sonnet December 18, 2015 at 5:57 PM

My prized possession that I have is a signed copies of M. Mabie’s wake series. She’s the first author that I met ( until going to Conventions) that interacted with fans. Her books are beyond brilliant and I love her something fierce. Thank you so much for this amazing giveaway.

Jovana December 18, 2015 at 6:14 PM

I’d love this and the indie-published version of The Sea of Tranquility. I kick myself for not buying the indie-pubbed versions of so many books I read years ago before they were picked up by trade publishers.

Savanna Phillips December 18, 2015 at 6:30 PM

My most coveted book is my signed indie copy of Hopeless by Colleen Hoover!

Thanks so much for the awesome giveaway!

Jennifer Vanlew December 18, 2015 at 6:49 PM

Karen Lawson December 18, 2015 at 9:35 PM

I have so many that have been gifted to me by authors I’ve worked with on that certain book, and I treasure all of those. I think the one book I most treasure of an author I didn’t help is the special signed 25th Anniversary leather-bound hardback of Outlander my husband gave me for Christmas a few years ago. I was lucky enough to see Diana Gabaldon in Iowa last December and she personalized it to me! Claire and Jamie hold a special place in my heart! (As do Christian and Anastasia so I’d really love this set too!)

Juli Valenti December 18, 2015 at 9:47 PM



My most coveted and prized item is a first edition of Louisa May Alcott’s Little Woman. I was remarkably lucky and found 2 almost dirt cheap at Goodwill. I thought I was being pranked but they’re legit!!

Ryn Hughes December 18, 2015 at 9:57 PM

I’d LOVE to have my first edition copy of Memoirs of a Geisha signed by Arthur Golden.

Ryn Hughes December 18, 2015 at 9:58 PM

I’d LOVE to get my first edition copy of Memoirs of a Geisha signed by Arthur Golden. I have seven copies in total but the first edition is my most prized possession!

Lynne December 18, 2015 at 9:59 PM

Oh Wow Maryse. All 3 of my 50 Shades books were purchased a long time ago by The Writer’s Coffee Shop. I didn’t even realize it until I read this! Don’t enter me in your contest, but good luck everybody! I’m pretty sure this series started many of us on our reading journey & what a great time it’s been!!!!

Betty Hooper December 18, 2015 at 10:00 PM

I have a signed copy of Sweet Ruin by Kresley Cole,the Fifty shades movie cover & Grey. Thank you for this cool giveaway!

Jen C December 18, 2015 at 10:03 PM

Cece December 18, 2015 at 10:03 PM

What a fantastic Christmas gift this would be!! My fave is Beautiful Disaster signed by Jamie from the first Book Bash!

Rachel Dopheide December 18, 2015 at 10:15 PM

I am obsessed with reading and have plenty of books and E books that I love including a new version of fifty shades but honestly whenever I buy a book I get the cheapest version because I would rather spend my money on my children than me so I don’t have any amazing book prize possessions. I would love to be able to have these though to have something special for me. The is a great giveaway. Thanks for the opportunity to win them.

summer December 18, 2015 at 10:16 PM

My most Favorite book that was given to my by an author is Take a Chance by Abbi Glines. She had this time period where you could send her your books via mail and she would sign them and send them back. I only had a few of her books cause I had just recently found her in the book world. I was loving her books so much, they are really great! Anyways I wrote her a little letter saying thank you for writing the stories and being so kind and signing my books. She sent me Take a Chance along with my books she sent back. It was before the book was available. I was unbelievably excited, not only did I have my first ever books signed by an author but I had an advanced uncorrected proofs book signed by an author. That is why it is my favorite book. Sorry this is so long you probably didn’t want the whole story :)

I haven’t ever won a paperback. But because my Friends love me they have sent me two KA books
They know I love her books. I think I don’t win paperbacks because I live in SA it’s probably expensive to mail here. But we also don’t get any Authors that I love here. Thanks for the chance.

Rose December 19, 2015 at 1:31 AM

Good question….I’ve been to a few signings and have some treasures. My most “coveted” would be signed copies of Pulse and Collide by Gail Hugh. Loved these two books and it was a treat to meet her. Thank you for the giveaway.

My father’s favorite author was Louis Lamour. He owned every book that Lamour wrote. Years ago I stood in line for two hours for Mr. Lamour to autograph one of his books so I could give it to my Dad for Christmas. He was thrilled. He passed away four years ago and I became the keeper of his Louis Lamour library. I came across that special book and cried, but they were good tears. Loved my Dad so much.

Kristina Hammock December 19, 2015 at 3:04 AM

My most prized book item is my autographed Sarah Dessen books from when I met her a few years ago at a book signing…they are the only signed books I own so they are pretty special to me. :) I would love to win this set as I don’t own them yet. I just checked them out from the local library on my Kindle so I’d love to have copies to keep. Thank you for the chance to win!

Stephanie Christine December 19, 2015 at 3:28 AM

Marlene Flanagan December 19, 2015 at 7:39 AM

My ultimate most cosseted book prize would be a signed set of The Original Sinners series by Tiffany Reisz, I think I would probably just curl up and think, yep my life has just been officially made from here!!

Signed Colleen Hoover books I have both the Slammed series and Hopeless series.

Holly December 19, 2015 at 9:33 AM

I have a signed Blackstone Affair series by Raine Miller! It’s my absolute prized signed books… It was just hard explaining to the kids why I have almost “nudey” people on my books and “why does your book say NAKED mommy?”

Lee Ann Cameron December 19, 2015 at 10:13 AM

Kristen Ashley is one of my top three FAVORITE authors and I only have her books in kindle format. I would love to have all of her books physically on my shelf!!!

sue raymond December 20, 2015 at 5:52 PM

My favorite most coveted book the first romance novel I ever bought. Do you remember Shanna by Kathleen E. Woodwiss? That’s it. It’s lead to a lifetime of love, angst, a little kink, and hours of entertainment!

Misty December 20, 2015 at 9:12 PM

I have nevr had a book win … unless you count a NKOTB book I won several years ago somehow lol

Annie Walsh December 21, 2015 at 12:11 AM
