Week 4, ARC Giveaway: Trent, Al, Kisten, Ivy

***** UPDATE 5/6/21 ***** We have a winner for the fourth of ten ARC giveaways. Amy H. was lucky number 204 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, Amy! 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 letters over. 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 the next  ARC of Million Dollar Demon.  Want to enter? Here’s how this week!

AmericanDemon_FBImages_v2_CopyUsing 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 book beau or girl.) One entry per household please.

I will cut off entries at midnight, PST on Monday, May 3. 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!

If you want to skip the chaos and pre-order a signed, personalized copy, I have a list of my favorite stores. If you like your local store where they are, please consider ordering from them. Not just my book, but any book. If you want a signed-to-you copy, Nicola’s is our only outlet this year. (They also have signed mass markets of American Demon, which just came out!) You can find them at the same link. I will also have beautiful, signed book plates at Mysterious Galaxy, Murder by the Book, and the University Bookstore.

Holly. was lucky number 1281 out of over 1400 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, Holly! And thank you everyone who played along.

In celebration of earth day, I want to know, is your library primarily paper…or plastic? (electronic) And because I like giving things away, if you email Tim your answer, you will be in the flash-giveaway for a bound-manuscript ARC of Million Dollar Demon. (My library is strictly paper simply because I enjoy the tactile touch and need to break from the screen when relaxing.) Want to enter? Here’s how this week!

Bookplates available with purchase at Mysterious Galaxy, Murder by the Book, and University Book Store

Using an email you have access to for the next five days, email Tim at <coldtoastwritingsllc@comcast.net>  Put “Paper or Plastic” in the subject line so we know you’re entering the contest. In the email, tell me if you have more paper books in your possession at this very second, or electronic. (Tell me here as well to help boost shares and get you some bonus points–which get you nothing except the chance to brag about your library.) One entry per household please.

I will cut off entries at midnight, PST on Monday, April 26. 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 away two next week.

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. To clarify, these are bound manuscript ARCS, not the soft-cover, book-like ARCS we are used to. As far as I know, there will only be ten of these in existence. End of story. Boom!

Good luck!

University Bookstore Seattle WA

If I’m standing next to Duane, then you know I’m in Seattle at the University Bookstore. I had a bit of a shock coming in to the store since despite all the times that I’ve been to there, I’d never seen the front, and when the car pulled up, I thought I was in the wrong place. It had been arranged that this was going to be a joint signing with Patricia Briggs, and did we have fun! We did this last year, and it was a delight to do it again! This time, though, Harper live streamed the event, which you can still view by clicking the link below.

Kim Harrison / Pattrica Briggs live streaming event 3-7-2012

Because Harper was having a sales conference at the time, there were a lot of authors sparking about. I got to meet Bram, better known for his artwork but gaining noterity in his literature now. I also got to meet Robin Hobb, and after seeing Seattle on a clear and sunny day with the mountain is beautiful relief, I know why she writes about dragons. They just live there. You can almost see them.

Me and my Seattle Roadies!! Thank you for coming out and seeing us! It was a fantastic event with Patricia Briggs


The next morning, Pattrica and I met at The Signed Page to personalize all those books that you had been ordering. A little more relaxed than last night.


I hope we can do this again.
