Week 9: Last Hollows ARC giveaway

***** UPDATE 6/9/21 ***** We have winners for the ninth and tenth ARC giveaways. Heather and Jeff both won, and have already e-mailed me back to claim their ARC! Congratulations, Heather and Jeff. And thank you everyone who played along.

In the interests of getting these last two ARCS out before release date, I’m going to give away two ARCS this week! It’s not too late to order a signed-to-you copy from Nicola’s, but I’ve also got three outlets for bookplate-signed books as well if you want to patronage your local store: Jo-Beth in the Cincinnati area, Murder by the Book, Mysterious Galaxy, and University Bookstore. Don’t forget about the three live events scheduled for the 15, 16, and 17 where you can ask me a question. If you want to attend, get your invite now! (direct links at the website)

So, to enter to win the ARC, I want to know how many people you have in your Hollows circle that you can talk about the books with!.

Using an email you have access to for the next five days, email Tim at <coldtoastwritingsllc@comcast.net>  Put “Hollows chat” in the subject line so we know you’re entering the contest. In the email, tell me how many book buddies you can talk Hollows with. Tell me here and FB as well to help boost shares. One entry per household please.

I will cut off entries at midnight, PST on Monday, June 7th. I will announce the first, second, and third place winner on Tuesday morning, AND email them for the address they want me to mail their prize. Winners will have until the coming Thursday midnight to get back to me to claim their ARC and tell me their mailing address.

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 best. 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.

We are so close now to release I can almost taste it!

P.S. Sorry about being so late in posting this. I was not feeling _at all_ well this morning. I am fine, and I’ve had my COVID shot, so no worries! “See” you at the live events!

Week 8 Hollows ARC / T-shirt giveaway

***** UPDATE 6/1/21 ***** We have a winner for the eighth of ten ARC giveaways. Kate has won the ARC, Rivky the shirt, and Molly the signed cover! Come back Friday for a new question to answer to enter the next giveaway! Congratulations, Kate, Ricky, and Molly! And thank you everyone who played along.

Two weeks! Two weeks, and you can have in your hot little hands, Million Dollar Demon and know just what trouble Rachel has gotten herself into now. Things are starting to really happen, and the excitement of a release is becoming real. No onsite signings this year, but I’m going in next week to sign the ones you’ve ordered from Nicolas, and I’ve got three live events scheduled for the 15, 16, and 17 where you can ask me a question. If you want to attend, get your invite now! (direct links at the website)

I’m going to miss seeing you guys, so much so that Tim dug deep into the back of our manuscript closet and found three 5X tour shirts left over from the Witch With no Name tour. (If you wear a small, they make good sleepwear.) We’re going to give one away this week to the second-place winner, and a signed cover to the third. First place winner still gets an ARC.

So, to enter to win the ARC, or the shirt, or the signed cover tell me if you have ever been to one of my signings.

Using an email you have access to for the next five days, email Tim at <coldtoastwritingsllc@comcast.net>  Put “Hollows roadie” in the subject line so we know you’re entering the contest. In the email, tell me if you’ve been to one of my signings, and if not, where you want me to come next year when I can get out again. Tell me here and FB as well to help boost shares. One entry per household please.

I will cut off entries at midnight, PST on Monday, May 31st. I will announce the first, second, and third place winner on Tuesday morning, AND email them for the address they want me to mail their prize. Winners will have until the coming Thursday midnight to get back to me to claim their prize and tell me their mailing address. If I don’t hear from you by Thursday midnight, the prize 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 best. 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.

Week 7 ARC giveaway. Who is Rachel greater threat? Nick, or Piscary?

***** UPDATE 5/25/21 ***** We have a winner for the seventh of ten ARC giveaways. Hazel G. was lucky number 564 out of nearly eight hundred 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, Hazel! And thank you everyone who played along.

We are three weeks out from Million Dollar Demon’s release: are you ready? I’m almost there, and I can’t wait to see you at my three live events scheduled for the 15, 16, and 17. If you want to attend, get your invite now! (direct links at the website) Space is limited. And…if you have been waiting to preorder, the window for at/near drop date at Nicolas is closing. I’ll be personalizing MMDs until after release date, but if you want a chance of getting this bad boy on or near the drop date, you have to order NOW! We’re looking at a lot of books, and though their shipping is top-notch, that’s a lot of books to process in a day or two to reach you at or near the drop date. First come, first served.

The winning ARCS are going out immediately, though. I’ve got three left, one for each week to the release date. This week, I want to know who you think is/was the more dangerous threat to Rachel. Is it the lethal master vampire Piscary who wants to see her dead at Ivy’s hand? Or is it poor, helpless, human Nick?

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 “Rachel’s True Threat” in the subject line so we know you’re entering the contest. In the email, tell me who you think Rachel’s greater threat is/was. Tell me why you think so here and FB to help boost shares. One entry per household please.

I will cut off entries at midnight, PST on Monday, May 24. 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 best. 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.

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.)

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!

Week 5 ARC giveaway: If I lived in the Hollows…

***** UPDATE 5/11/21 ***** We have a winner for the fifth of ten ARC giveaways. Jason L. was lucky number 228 out of nearly 1000 entries, and he has already e-mailed me back to claim his ARC and freebie! Come back Friday for a new question to answer to enter the next giveaway! Congratulations, Jason! And thank you everyone who played along.

I will admit it. I have sat in an airport, watching people go by, saying, “Were. Elf. Demon,” categorizing the passing people into their Inderland houses, so to speak. Which makes me wonder, if you lived in the Hollows, who would you be? Charismatic, secretive elf? All powerful but emotionally damaged demon? Perhaps a rock-steady, magic-wise witch? Or a pack-loving Were? Bridge troll, anyone? Or perhaps a jack-of-all-trades human?

Only Available At Nicolas.

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 House” in the subject line so we know you’re entering the contest. In the email, tell me who you would be if you lived in the Hollows. (Tell me why here as well to help boost shares and get you some bonus points–which get you nothing except the chance to brag about your Inderlander skills.) One entry per household please.

I will cut off entries at midnight, PST on Monday, May 10. 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. I’ve got a bunch of these to give away until release day on June 15th. Even better, I finally got the ARCS from the publishers, and they are real, bound galleys that we’re used to. This is an extremely limited 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 MILLION DOLLAR DEMON this year. They will ship overseas, but email them first for a shipping quote. (follow the link below.)

The Turn ARC contest

It’s a little early to be thinking about giving away copies of THE TURN, but my pumpkins are turning orange. Yep, you read that right. Pumpkins and the Hollows, there is a connection. I’m thinking that the ARC will be ready to share just about the time the frost rims the pumpkins, and wouldn’t it be fun to give the ARCs away with a contest revolving around how many pumpkins I get out of my pumpkin patch.

I don’t know how many ARCs I’m going to get to give away, so we’ll pool up the correct responses and do a drawing when I harvest my pumpkins. (We’ll email you for your mailing address at that point, so please respond with an email you will still have in December.) Tim and I are trying to swing some consolation prizes as well, either hard covers of THE DRAFTER, or mass markets of THE HOLLOWS INSIDER. No promises, but it looks good.

Today, all you have to do is take a long look at my pumpkin patch and guess how many pumpkins I’m going to get. They are pie pumpkins, so there could be a lot hidden away, or only a few since it’s been really hot and they don’t like to set fruit when it’s hot.

You’re encouraged to submit another entry if you already did so from Friday’s newsletter.

Want to sign up? Here it is: Kim’s Newsletter Newsletter readers will continue to get extra chances from now to when we give these bad boys away, not to mention early looks at the cover.

AugustPumpkins1

To enter:

  1. You have until Tuesday, Noon, EST to send Tim an email at coldtoastwritingsllc@comcast.net with the word PUMPKIN in the subject line along with your guess.
  2. He’s not going to be opening them, so be sure your guess is in the subject line along with the “magic” word, PUMPKIN. 😉 Your email subject line will look like this: Pumpkin 42
  3. We’ll have a different word next time, so we can keep these things straight, and we will have another chance to enter in about a week.
  4. You don’t have to be in the U.S. to win.

Good luck!

Kim
