Ripple Winner and New Giveaway...

Congratulations to Sallie Mazzur (you should have received an email from me) for winning the hardcover copy of Ripple by Mandy Hubbard!  I hope you like this book as much as I did!

Before I move on to the newest giveaway, I need to acknowledge that while I will still be hosting giveaways, I'll be taking a mini break from the blog.  With the invalid (aka the Hubs) still incapacitated, it's just too hard to keep up.  Between critiquing and finishing my own edits, it has proven to be too much.  So for the time being the blog is going to be mostly fluff.  Hope you still continue to follow and bear with me!

Also if you want a really good series, A-Z Blogging on the ins and outs of writing, (seriously I don't miss a single post) check out Daisy's blog at Fresh As A Daisy.  Believe me you won't regret following her…EVER!

And please don't forget to check out Carrie's giveaway of  A Temptation of Angels by Michelle Zink at Where I Get Wordy.

Ok, now onto my newest giveaway (which will run for 2 weeks this cycle) we have Bloodlines by Richelle Mead.

The first book in Richelle Mead's brand-new teen fiction series - set in the same world as Vampire Academy.

When alchemist Sydney is ordered into hiding to protect the life of Moroi princess Jill Dragomir, the last place she expects to be sent is a human private school in Palm Springs, California. But at their new school, the drama is only just beginning.

Populated with new faces as well as familiar ones, Bloodlines explores all the friendship, romance, battles and betrayals that made the #1 New York Times bestselling Vampire Academy series so addictive - this time in a part-vampire, part-human setting where the stakes are even higher and everyone's out for blood.
