Trouble With The Cursed ARC giveaway

***** UPDATE 5/27/22 ***** Chris and Lynn have won the two ARC giveaways. Come back Friday for a new question to answer to enter the next giveaway! Congratulations, Chris and Lynn! And thank you everyone who played along.

Carrie and Kell won the first two ARCs. But you have another chance to win it before it’s available!

Here’s how you enter:

Using an email you have access to for the next five days, email Tim at <coldtoastwritingsllc@comcast.net>  Put “Favorite UF flick” in the subject line so we know you’re entering the contest. In the email, tell me your favorite Urban fantasy TV series or movie. (Tell me here as well for bonus points–which get you nothing except the chance to brag about your fav.) One entry per household please. (Unfortunately, I can no longer support making these available out of the U.S. due to sky rocking postal fees. Seriously, it is totally out of control. I’m a little ticked off about it, and it sucks.)

I will cut off entries at midnight, PST on Monday, May 23. I will announce the winner on Tuesday morning, AND email them for the address they want me to mail the bound manuscript 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 it away with the other two next week.

ARCs have no cash value, and 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 14th!

Don’t want to try your luck? Nicola’s is offering signed-to-you books. (order here) Purchased books will be shipped before the live event at Nicola’s on the 17th.

Yes, in addition to two virtual events, I have snagged ONE IN STORE SIGNING this year!!! Come out and see me June 17th. Due to long Covid policies, it won’t be a typical event with Q&A and pictures, but you can ask me questions at the signing desk. Nicolas is asking that everyone register with evenbright (link here) so they can call small batches up at a time to prevent a crowd and give you more time to shop. It will be outside in good weather, inside if not.

I can’t wait to see you!

Who’s your daddy? Signed Hollows ARC Sweeps

***** UPDATE 5/20/22 ***** We have winners for the first ARC giveaways. Carrie and Kell both won, and have already e-mailed me back to claim their ARC! Congratulations, Carrie and Kell! And thank you everyone who played along.

Relationships in the Hollows hold no guarantee. Waxing and waining, they often end abruptly leaving a great gaping holes that I get emails about. Today, I want to know who your first Hollows crush is/was. Steadfast Ivy? Frenemey turned lover Trent? All powerful Big Al? Or a loving memory of Kisten, cut down as he became who he wanted to be? (or someone completely different?)

Sigh.

And because I like giving things away, if you email Tim your answer, you will be in the flash-giveaway for one of two ARCs of the next Hollows book, Trouble With The Cursed.  It’s the first of four giveaways, so if you don’t get an email from me on Tuesday that you won, you can enter again next Friday with a new submission.

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 crush” in the subject line so we know you’re entering the contest. In the email, tell me who your Hollows crush is/was. (Tell me why here as well to help boost shares and get you some bonus points–which get you nothing except the chance to wax about your Hollows crush.) One entry per household please.

I will cut off entries at midnight, PST on Monday, May 16. 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 it away next week.

Unfortunately, I can no longer support making these available out of the US due to sky rocking postal fees. Seriously, it is totally out of control. I’m a little ticked off about it, and it sucks.

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 14th. This is a limited print run of ARCS due to “long covid” issues, and I’m so thankful to have them to give out to you.

Good luck!

If you want to skip the chaos and pre-order a signed-to-you, personalized copy, Nicolas is currently the only outlet this year, and I don’t see that changing. (Nicola’s also has signed mass markets of Million Dollar Demon, which just came out!) You can find them at the end of the link. Kim’s home store, Nicolas

An-n-n-nd… if you are looking for a sneak peek of Trouble with the Cursed, I can do that! First chapter goodness is at the website. Sneak Peek

Harper is having a giveaway!

Harper is moving offices later this month, and they are doing the same thing Guy and I did last week–digging to the back of our closets. And boy did they find something!

So to help celebrate the upcoming, post Labor Day publication of THE WITCH WITH NO NAME and the 10th anniversary of book one, DEAD WITCH WALKING, they are giving away signed Hollows books on the Voyager facebook page. One of them is the Hollows Insider, and if you’ve not seen this yet, take a look. It is truly one of the most heartfelt pieces of work that I’ve ever written, full color and containing photos submitted by readers. Oh, and it glows in the dark.

HarperGiveaway

I went over and checked the giveaway out, and though it is open only to US and Canada because of it being a US/North America edition, you’re not giving info to FB even though that’s where you enter. You’re basically signing up for the Harper Newsletter (if you opt for it) Click here to enter!

Already caught up? You can preorder The Witch With No Name. (Early chapter release is here: Chapter One, The Witch With No Name

e-book give away-Five by Friday!

I’ve got five electronic copies of INTO THE WOODS to give away to US residents from today to tomorrow! To enter, just tell me here at the drama box by noon, EST Friday, which of the Hollows titles is your favorite, and why.

HollowsMontage

Guy and I will randomly choose five on Friday as the winners and send you an email with the code to redeem for your electronic copy of INTO THE WOODS, so post your answer here using the email you want to be notified on. If I don’t hear back from you in a week, it goes back into my bag of goodies and will not be awarded.

If you’ve never posted before, there will be a lag of one to four hours before your post will show up ’cause I’m the one approving new users, and contrary to some of your thinking, I DO spend time off-line actually writing this stuff. -grin-

So again, to enter, tell me here which of the Hollows titles is your favorite, and why. Entries at FB are nice, but will not be in the running. And you can only have one favorite, so please enter only once. On  your honor.

I’m sorry, the codes I have are only good within the US.
