Free Books Friday
I have another IBARW post planned, but haven’t had a chance to write it all out yet. So instead, I figured I’d just give away some books.
Specifically, I’m giving away four autographed copies of The Stepsister Scheme [Amazon | Mysterious Galaxy]. All I ask in return is that you post a review of the book between now and October 6.
Yes, it’s a blatant attempt to get a few more reviews out there before the next book hits the shelves. But it’s also free books for you, so I figure it’s a win-win.
If you’re interested, post a comment telling me why you should be one of the chosen. Serious reasons are welcome, as are the not-so-serious. (Ex: I have my own blimp, and will use this to advertise my review over the Super Bowl. I invented Google, and will make sure the Google logo incorporates the cover art for Mermaid on 10/6/09. I’m Chuck Norris! And so on…)
Two of the books will go to my favorite comments, and the other two winners will be drawn completely at random. I’ll pick the winners after 1:00 p.m. EST tomorrow , 8/1/09, so you’ve got 24 hours.
As always, thanks to everyone who’s shopped at Amazon through my affiliate links. You’re the ones making it possible for me to keep giving away free books.

Something witty here.
Nevermind, I guess I’ll just be in for the raffle. 🙂

I cannot review more than I have already revieweth. So, I should get an extra entry in the drawing?
Also, I lack Wit. See husband for details.

Hm … maybe if you win, I’ll just make you post links back to your original review 🙂

Hmm I’ve already reviewed it too

Being cash strapped I haven’t had the $$ to get your books, no matter how much I wanted one after reading Seanan McGuire’s review on her LJ, so please please let me win one, I’d happily post on twitter and my LJ a review.

I have a number of reasons why you should pick me. All true, and alas, none terribly funny:
1 – I adore fractured fairy tales and fairy tale re-tellings and really want to read this.
2 – Books that I like, by authors whose readership I want to help expand, get purchased for all gifting occasions.
3 – I’m buying fewer things for myself right now because I’m saving money for my 6 year old dog’s upcoming amputation.

I’ve been waiting to read this book since I came over to England, but after 12 months, I have yet to find it in one bookstore or library catalogue. I REALLY want to read it.
Also, if I ever work at Bakka-Phoenix again when I move back home, I can use the opportunity to shamelessly plug the book. And I’d add my review to the store shelves if someone hasn’t done so already.

I’m a closeted, secret mesmerist and founder of the Illuminati. As you know, we rule the world.

If you give me a book, then when I take over the world, I will give you your own country. Jig and Smudge can be on the flag and your national anthem can be about goblins and everything. Who doesn’t want brownie points with the future Queen of the World?
