G For June Contest

Hello hello!

Today is Friday and we got some book winners from the June contest.

First a little bit o' background. On my former mailing list, I offered subscribers some books off my shelf that I had read and wanted to pass on to other readers. Some were order mishaps from online bookstores and others were ones that weren't quite my cup o' tea but I figured they might be someone else's so I offered them up for grabs to my subscribers.

Well, I've moved my news and updates here to my blog and to my Facebook and Twitter page since the news has been sparse and I didn't want to cloud folk's inboxes up. You can sign up for more recent updates here which has more goodies than the mailing list. My sidebar has a subscription via email or any reader you may be using for blogs.

So, without further ado, here are the G For June Contest winners!

Last month we had two contests to illustrate the title: one for a mass market edition of Diana Gabaldon's Drums of Autumn and another for a mass market edition Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere.

The random number generator has spoken! Congrats to Jo Ann White who won Neverwhere and Carol Luciano who won Drums!! Woo hoo! I think you guys included your addys in the emails so I'll pop those in the mail as soon as I can! If anyone from the previous contest hasn't received their books yet, hang tight because they should be on their way! I haven't forgotten about ya. :-)

My giveaway stash has sorta depleted so I'm going to hold off this month's contest until I get a little more in to share with you guys. I do have a special book giveaway for the month of September to commence Diana Gabaldon's current release in the Outlander series. I bought this book especially to give away to my readers because I love it so much and wanted to share an awesome book with you guys. I would give away my own shelf copy but that version is what I call a 'cold dead hands' book. Like some folks have desert island keepers. With me the only way I'll part with my fave copies if they're pried from my cold, dead hands. ;-) So check back in September for that goodie book.

In the meantime, I have some of my own goodies to offer for the month of August so there won't be any book giveaways then but everyone will have a chance at a freebie from yours truly!

Stay tuned!

It's August!

Hey folks!

Can you guys believe it's August already?

Lots of stuff going on in the world of Rae at the moment both personally and professionally. The newsletter will be going out soon and I'm diligently trying to get out a new release ASAHP that was held back a bit due to me not being happy with the end results. Stay tuned because I feel the end is nigh!

I took a breather from book reviewing and reading to deal with my current rental situation, but I miss it! I love the feeling of coming across that epic book you want to shout from the rooftops and losing myself in epic worlds. Sooooo....I'm diving back in. :-D I'm going through the list of books I had waiting in the wings and will try to play catch up. As I'm only one person with a busy schedule, I may not be able to get all the books reviewed right away and some I may sadly have to put aside if they don't grab me enough. Argh! I want to read and review everything but I can see now why so many bloggers have t…

Book Review ~ Who R U Really? ~ A Highly Recommended Read

Who R U Really? by Margo Kelly

Thea's overprotective parents are driving her insane. They invade her privacy, ask too many questions, and restrict her online time so severely that Thea feels she has no life at all. When she discovers a new role-playing game online, Thea breaks the rules by staying up late to play. She's living a double life: on one hand, the obedient daughter; on the other, a girl slipping deeper into darkness. In the world of the game, Thea falls under the spell of Kit, an older boy whose smarts and savvy can't defeat his loneliness and near-suicidal despair. As Kit draws soft-hearted Thea into his drama, she creates a full plate of cover stories for her parents and then even her friends.

Soon, Thea is all alone in the dark world with Kit, who worries her more and more, but also seems to be the only person who really "gets" her. Is he frightening, the way he seems sometimes, or only terribly sad? Should Thea fear Kit, or pity him? And now, Kit wan…
