Week 6 ARC giveaway. Double date: Bowling with Trent and Rachel? Or Carew tower dinner with Ivy and Kisten?

***** UPDATE 5/18/21 ***** We have a winner for the sixth of ten ARC giveaways. Chris B. was lucky number 538 out of nearly 1000 entries, and she has already e-mailed me back to claim her ARC and freebie! Come back Friday for a new question to answer to enter the next giveaway! Congratulations, Chris! And thank you everyone who played along.

We are about a month out from the drop date of Million Dollar Demon, and this week, I want to know who you’d double date with. Would you and your significant other rather go bowling with Trent and Rachel, or dine at the five-start restaurant atop Carew Tower with Ivy and Kisten?

And because I like giving things away, if you email Tim your answer, you will be in the flash-giveaway for the next  ARC of Million Dollar Demon.  Want to enter? Here’s how this week!

Using an email you have access to for the next five days, email Tim at <coldtoastwritingsllc@comcast.net>  Put “Hollows Double Date” in the subject line so we know you’re entering the contest. In the email, tell me if you’d rather go bowling with Trent and Rachel, or dinner and desert in Carew Tower with Ivy and Kisten. Mmmm, decisions, decisions. Tell me here as well to help boost shares and get you some bonus points–which get you nothing except the chance to tell me about your perfect date night. One entry per household please.

I will cut off entries at midnight, PST on Monday, May 17. I will announce the winner on Tuesday morning, AND email them for the address they want me to mail the ARC to as well as find out if and how they want me to sign it.  Winners will have until the coming Thursday midnight to get back to me to claim the ARC and tell me their mailing address. If I don’t hear from you by Thursday midnight, the ARC goes back in the pool and I will give away two next week.

Out of the U.S? You can still enter. ARCs have no cash value, though they may get held up in customs forever. Books will go out UPS or USPS, whatever is faster. Chance of winning depends upon how many enter. Winners will be chosen by a random number generator, and I can’t be responsible for mail that goes astray.

That’s it. But do come back next Friday to enter again with a new question.

Our winners so far have been in both the US and Canada: Michelle, Daphne, Holly, Amy, and just last week, Jason. I’ve got a few more to give away until release day on June 15th. This is an extremely limited ARC print run due to covid, and I’m so thankful to have them to give out to you.

Good luck!

P.S. My local store, Nicolas, is the only outlet for personalized books this tour. I’ll be going in soon to begin to personalize these so they can be shipped out to land right around the drop date. If you want to snag one of these bad boys, don’t wait to the last minute or it will delay your ship date. Nicolas will ship overseas, but email them first for a shipping quote. (Follow the link below.)

Nicolas also has signed mass markets of AMERICAN DEMON along with most of the other back titles. Mysterious Galaxy, Murder by the Book, and University bookstore will have beautiful, signed book plates as well as a limited number of freebies. (Which you can still mail me a SASE for.)

    Bowling with Trent and Rachel. So fun!!

  2. Although I would love to hang out with Rachel and Trent, I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to have dinner and dessert with Ivy and Kisten in Carew Tower!

  3. Double date with Trent and Rachel! Those two always end up in some kind of funky situation and see them interact while trying one-up each other for the scores would be amazing! While they compete between themselves me and my date can win the game and have a snack at the time that Rachel and Trent banter on who made them come second in this friendly competition.

  4. Stacey Harkins

    I would jump at the chance to kick rachel and trents butts in a game of bowling!!! No contest, hands down bowling for sure!!!

  5. Dinner with Ivy and Kisten would be nice, but bowling with Rachel and Trent would be more entertaining, I think.

  6. Wren

    Rachel and Trent! Can you imagine keeping your excitement down for Ivy and Kisten so you aren’t their “bowling nachos”? Nope!

  7. Ann Estey

    Bowling with Rachel and Trent – SO much potential for mayhem, and I think Ivy and Kisten alone might be enough to get me blood sugared 😉

  8. Doug WIlson

    dinner and desert in Carew Tower with Ivy and Kisten – I suck at bowling but LOVE to eat

  9. Brianna M

    Trent and Rachel 😁 Sorry Kisten however, you made it super hard.

  10. Brianna M

    Trent and Rachel 😁 Sorry Kisten however, you made it super hard.

  11. Jane Atherton

    I like both ideas, but going with dinner af Curew Toeer with Ivy and Kisten. Just to see Kisten again, of course.

  12. MK

    Although I would enjoy both, I”d prefer to go bowling with Trent and Rachel.

  13. Barb Smith

    Bowling with Trent and Rachel

  14. Dawn Potter

    Hi Kim!,
    This double date scenario was a tough one but I gotta say, I’d rather go to dinner and desert in Carew Tower with Ivy and Kisten. I miss Kisten in the books but am not upset that his time came to an end when it did. Sometimes chari’s aren’t meant to see a series through! I think it helped Rachel, Ivy, Jenks and even Trent grow.

    Thank you for this chance to win an arc. I love your books!

    Have a wonderful day,

    Dawn Potter (D.L. Potter)

  15. Betty McClard

    Bowling with Trent and Rachel and my date would be Hodin.

  19. Tanya

    Trent and Rachel!!

  20. Chouchouna H

    I’ve always been curious about the restaurant in Carew Tower. I would love to see the view and I loved Kisten. However, I’ll take the bowling with Rachel and Trent. I’d do anything to be in Trent’s vicinity. How pathetic is that?!?

  21. Kelly Monty

    Definitely bowling with Trent and Rachel all the way! The competition and people watching would be hilarious with them.

    I love your work and thank you for all you do!

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  22. Anna

    My perfect double date would be to have dinner and dessert with ivy and kisten!

  23. Marissa

    A night of bowling sounds great, but dinner with kisten and ivy just sounds like more fun! Plus it gives me a chance to wear a fancy dress and drink raspberry water

  24. Nicky

    Bowling with Trent and Rachel would be awesome and you get to be yourself hanging out and having fun.

  25. Sara

    Is a double date with Rachel and Ivy an option? 😁

  26. Michelle Sorensen

    Bowling! Bowling places tend to have some pretty good game foods. Plus more of a chance for a spontaneous adventure to happen with those two around!

  27. Jenevra A

    Definitely the bowling double date with Trent and Rachel. Easy question this time!

  28. Sascha

    Best wishes!

  30. Katrina coe

    Bowling, more my idea of fun

    Katrina Coe

  31. Joseph

    I would much prefer bowling with Rachel & Trent, I semi-grew up in a local bowling alley in Las Vegas, so bowling has a special place in my heart. Not too mention, who can pass up a redhead in leather!!

  32. Shalon McNeese

    Bowling with Trent and Rachel!

  33. Ann Garcia

    Bowling with Trent & Rachel of course 😉

  34. Trish

    Oh Kist, how I loved thee, but bowling sounds like a great time!

  35. Vanessa

    Going Bowling with Trent and Rachel would be so much fun.

  36. Megan B

    Can I do both?

  37. Cynthia

    Definitely ivy and kistin! Who wouldn’t want to dive with a couple of living vampires?!

  38. Sara Kline

    I would definitely prefer bowling with Rachel and Trent! I’m not one who enjoys dressing up for a fancy dinner that much. I’d prefer a casual fun date out!

  39. SuzAnne Carr

    Definitely Ivy and Kisten, being that it would be the only chance to “see him” again!

  40. Diane Gauvin

    This week’s question is a tough choice! Fun or thrill… 🤷🏻‍♀️
    I’d choose bowling with Rachel and Trent – simply because you just never know what would happen being around Rachel anyway!

  41. Alitza Leventhal

    Although dinner at Carew Tower with Ivy and Kristen sounds lovely, I’m ready for some action and think bowling with Rachel and Trent is just what I’m looking for!!

  42. Debby McMullen

    Trent and Rachel at the bowling alley! Besides loving them as a couple, I hate fancy dressing!

  43. Julie Kirkpatrick

    Omg how awesome. As I sit here in “the Hollows” looking out over the Cincy Riverfront, I would totally go bowling with Trent and Rachel at Redondo in Newport!!!

  44. Laura Tunison-Hugunin

    I would choose the bowling with Trent and Racheal. You never know what kind of adventure awaits with those two and I would love a front row seat, having cast a super protective bubble around both my husband and myself first of course. With Kisten and Ivy, I would be worried that while trying to look nice for my husband I inadvertently showed to much neck, wore the wrong necklace , and would be to afraid to order anything crunchy on the menu. To much stress to worry about with living vampires….I dont want to end up as an after dinner cocktail!

  45. James

    Bowling 😁
    Think you’d be more likely to see them both relax and have fun

  46. Gwen

    Lol I so agree with you, how dare she killed Kisten twice! 😉

  47. Jeremy Goodridge

    Definitely a double date dinner with Trent and Rachel… waiting to see magical “sparks”…

  48. Michelle

    The Kisten option obviously. I still haven’t quite forgiven you for that one lol. I bet you have that mug that says “Tears of my Readers”. 😂
