 What can you win here?  And what is The Summoner's Tale?  On this blog you can win 3 things:  

First Prize:
$20 Amazon Card and a copy of Lost in a Looking Glass:
Irving Podolsky is a nice Jewish boy looking for a nice Jewish girl and a job out of college which would, Irv hopes, make the world a better place. But when our hero's food supply dwindles down to a slab of Velveeta and a jar of pickles, our lad takes his only job offer: directing pornographic movies. This leads to a night shift gig in a mental hospital, only to have that be replaced by the lowest rung in food service, which drives Irv so bonkers his mind ejects out of his body to the Other Side. Irv's Odyssey is a humorous quest for love, truth and the meaning of life while lost in alternate life styles, a psychedelic drug culture and the free-love of the seventies. "Lost in a Looking Glass" starts the journey.Irving Podolsky resides in the mind of this writer and within the trilogy, "Irv's Odyssey." As your storyteller, I'd like to share the adventure with your younger YOU, that which seeks fun, romance and a wild ride into the Unknown.

"My plan was to take Lost in a Looking Glass with me so I could read it on our cruise. But I finished it before we even left. What a page turner "

Gregor Wossilus - film critic, content producer and story analyst for the Bavarian Broadcasting Network.


Second and Third:  E-copy of Falling Away by Devon Ashley
"I remember," he said softly. "I remember everything. You. Me. Us."

Jenna’s first two years of community college are almost over and it’s time to decide where to finish her degree. Should she attend Yale to be with Robert, or off to Rutgers, where she really wants to go? As Sophie and Jhett’s engagement is announced, she begins to question if she'll live happily ever after too. Right on cue with her doubts, a familiar boy pops up in her dreams again. But Evan's entrance is as abrupt as his exit, and Jenna’s left worrying about his safety. Concern and curiosity get the best of her and checking up on him puts her within arm’s reach of a man who still adores her, and one unexpected act of indiscretion will turn her world upside down and inside out.

New Adult Paranormal Romance (think old-school paranormal. Twilight Zone-ish, not sparkly supernatural creatures.)

Recommended for Ages 17+ for Language and Sexual Situations.

I don't think I'll be wearing anything sexy on V-Day this year. Although, if I were with my fiance' for V-Day, I would think it sexy to be wearing absolutely nothing.

I'm not sure if I have a favorite paranormal creature. I need to read more of that genre. But, I like vampires.

Thanks for the giveaway! I've never experienced my heart being on fire by a person but I have read good books that have done it! A good romantic novel is "Outlander" by Diane Gabaldon. Jamie is heroic and handsome and Claire is intelligent and beautiful. Their romance is EPIC and is composed of a true emotional connection between characters!
Happy V-Day!!

Toni Porter said...

Nothing sexy, as there is no one to wear it for. And if there was, I think "nothing" would be pretty sufficient. ;)

Toni Porter said...

My favorite paranormal entity? It's a tie between vampires (of the non-sparkly variety), and faeries (also not of the sparkly, "I fart rainbows" variety).

Susan W. said...

Since I usually spend Valentine's Day at work I just wear everyday casual clothes.

Shifters and Vampires are my favorite paranormal entities. Can't choose one over the other!
Thanks for the giveaways!
