30 Days, 30 Book Giveaways--Huge Carrie Vaughn Prize Pack

Ho, Ho, Ho!

I'm drowning in books over here--and I want to give some of them away! So, welcome to Holiday Heaven. For each weekday between now and Christmas Eve, I'll be pulling the name of a random commenter to win...well, you just have to check back and see. All will be paranormal--might be sci-fi, might be urban fantasy, might be fantasy, might be a YA paranormal. Some will be bestsellers, and some will be little-known favorites of mine. Some will be hot off the press; some will be classics. Most will be single titles, but you never know when I'll pull out a series. Check back each day and find out!

I'm starting off with a bang since tomorrow's Thanksgiving, so this will count as two days' giveaway...Today you can win the first SEVEN of Carrie Vaughn's great werewolf-named-Kitty series. This is the entire series to date except for the most recent, Kitty Goes to War.

You'll get:
--Kitty and the Midnight Hour
--Kitty Goes to Washington
--Kitty Takes a Holiday
--Kitty and the Silver Bullet
--Kitty and the Dead Man's Hand
--Kitty Raises Hell
--Kitty's House of Horrors
A couple are gently read; most are new.

All you have to do to be entered is leave a comment between now and tomorrow morning. Extra point if you're a blog follower. Extra point if you're a Twitter follower @Suzanne_Johnson, extra point if you RT the contest. Use my Twitter name so I'll know about it. Tell me in your comment how many entries you get.

For today's comment, tell me if you have a kitty of your very own....or a puppy. I have an Irish Terrier named Shane O'Mac and a Rottweiler/Chow Chow/Retriever mix named Tanker. Happy reading!

  3. Great giveaway! I have followed the blog and twitter.

    I do have a kitty called Boris and he has some serious attitude. As much as I love him - I think he plots to kill me.

  5. I've read one, but it wasn't the first one. It would be nice to read them from the beginning. Thanks for offering this giveaway.

  6. Unfortunately, we live in a very small apartment without even a yard to speak of, so I don't think it would be fair to bring an animal in. When I get a house, though, it will be a different story!

    Thanks for the chance to win such a great prize pack!

  9. Oops, didn't get the first paragraph in: I don't have cats or dogs, but I feed the local wildlife, which includes the occasional feral cat. I've been adopted by the neighbor's black cat. I want to get a black or chocolate lab in the future.

  11. Thats awesome Carrie. Your books are terrific. I have my daughters and daughter in law hooked too :)

    We have 2 cats Cinnamon and Thomas. Thomas doesn't know he is a cat, he thinks he is my puppy and follows me from room to room, lays at me feet and thinks at night he should make a "nest" in my hair to sleep.

    I also have a little dog named Lollipup She is a rescue dog, we got her from a home where she was being abused by larger dogs. She was so tiny when we got her but with love and food she doubled in size.

    If I do win any of the books during your contest, I just want you to know they will be going into Care Packages for the Military as I am a military mom and we like to spoil all our boys and girls deployed when we can

  12. No kitties, as several family members are rather allergic to them. But, we do have an almost 1-year old goldendoodle named Domino.

  14. Now that she is getting up there in age - she is 12, the cat will condescend enough on occasion to allow us to actually pet her, otherwise we are just her servants.
    Fortunately we have Labradors! They make us feel so loved and wanted (3 of them). Life without Labs? I don't think so.

  15. Sweetness!

    I have 5 cats at the moment, because two of my kitties had kittens. The two mommas are Veralidaine(Vear-aly-dane), we call her Daine for short, and Twilight whom is a gorgeous black cat. The kittens are Chibi, Daine's little one, and Yin and Yang, whom are Twilight's two. Yin is a white Siamese mix with blackish-gray paws and tail, while Yang is like Twilight and pure black.

    I don't have any dogs, because we are currently taking care of my older brother's pit bull. She's a sweetie, but given the choice I'd go for a German Shepherd, Rottweiler/German Shepherd mix, a Welsh Corgie which I would name Ein (Cowboy Bebop reference XD), Basset Hound, or a Beagle.

  16. I live with two wonderful kitties! Banshee is a torti, and lives up to her name! General Tso, or Sophie is a calico. They have serious character!

  19. Sounds great!

    We have a cat named Maru, short, of course, for Khobioshi Maru, because like many cats she can be a no-win scenerio.

  29. My son recently got into the kitty series - I would love to win this as a surprise for him.

    We have five cats running around our house right now. Two of the cats are ours, three are foster kitties. I'll detail one of the fosters - a little kitten named Lewis. We've developed a game called "Will Lewis eat it?" We've offered him every safe edible thing we've cooked, and he eats it all....banana bread, plain rice, egg salad, cheese, bbq sauce...the list goes on and on.

  30. I'm a follower so that gives me an extra point- sweet!

    This looks like a great series.

  31. No kitties at the moment, but when I do have them they are often named after food.

    Shake 'n' Bake, Biscuit, and Punkin Head were my favorites.

    ReplyDelete
  32. No kitties, too many family allergies, unfortunately. But two pups make up for them, Stella and Lucy.
    gonna retweet you as soon as I get network coverage...WTF, did the Verizon satellite get bombed or something? Sheesh.

  34. I am a blog follower.

    We spent twelve years raising and showing pedigreed cats, mostly Abyssinians. Right now we have only two "leftover" cat, Precious (who is beautiful, but not precious. Named Precious after her sister was named Vicious) and "The Ugly Kitten" (though she is no kitten now). Most of the rest had SF names, including Valentine Michael Smith, Valentina, Julian May, etc.
