Giveaways Galore and Mucho Free Books!

It’s a great time to read science fiction romance! This week there are all sorts of free contests to enter. Read on for details:

* At Beyond Her Book, Barbara Vey is celebrating her second anniversary, and she’s hosting a spectacular celebration all this week. Today’s focus is on SFF/Paranormal/Horror/Urban Fantasy, and just by commenting, you can enter to win prizes.

I’ve donated six books, and check out the authors who are also giving away SFR books & prizes: Rowena Cherry, Karin Shah, Linnea Sinclair, Ann Aguirre, Michelle Pillow, Robin D. Owens, Maria Zannini, Liz Kreger, and Stacey Klemstein.

But...that’s not all! Barbara is also giving away a $150.00 gift certificate for Amazon to one lucky person at the end of the week, courtesy of Publishers Weekly.

The party is in full swing now. Here’s the link: 2nd Anniversary Bash – Day 1

* Act fast! I’m not sure of the deadline for this contest, but Linnea Sinclair is giving away two books over at Romance Bandits. Check the comments for full details. Linnea is giving away a copy of both FINDERS KEEPERS and her latest release HOPE’S FOLLY.

Sinclair stipulated that:

“FINDERS will go to someone who’s NOT READ SFR but is willing to try.”

“FOLLY will go to someone who’s read GABRIEL’S and SHADES but hasn't bought FOLLY yet.”

* Right now, Gail Dayton is hosting a giveaway of her steampunk novel NEW BLOOD at To Be Read—So Many Authors, So Little Time.

* And there’s plenty of steampunk goodness to go around! Nathalie Gray will give away one copy of her e-novella MECHANICAL ROSE!

To enter your name, simply email her at mail “at” nathaliegray.com. Type “Mechanical Rose” in the subject line. The deadline to enter this contest is 8:00 pm, EST, on Sunday, March 15. But there's no need to beware these Ides of March--international entries are welcome!

* Finally, in light of Lexcycle Sponsors Read An E-Book Week, author Rae Lori is making her illustrated science fantasy romance novel THE EYE OF ALLORIA available as a free download. (It’s also available on the Stanza reader.)

Start entering and enjoy!

Joyfully yours,
