Book Giveaway!!!

I thought about doing a book giveaway for the New Year and, when that didn't happen, I considered it for Valentine's Day. Somewhere in the crazy mix that is my life and editing my WIP, however, I've failed to do either. To be honest, the last couple months have been a bit of a blur. Seriously, how is it March already?!?!

I'm making amends, however, and to prove it, I'll be giving away not one but two books!

I'm knee deep editing my WIP based on some very helpful comments. This process has forced me to look back at what's worked and also all the text that has been cut and edited and morphed until it's barely, if at all, recognizable. Yesterday was also March 4th (or as my husband likes to say, "the day that encourages us to march forth").

So my contest will be an ode to both looking back at the past, and to looking forward. For that reason, one lucky winner will have their pick of ANY book I've ever featured on the blog. That could be a book review, a cover love or title love post, from the list of my favorite books of the year, or a book I recommended for a Christmas present, or one featured on a book trailer, etc. The only requirement is that it was featured.

The other winner will have their choice of any soft cover book they want. And because I'm feeling particularly giving, this contest is international too.

The rule?

1. You must be a follower on the blog.

2. You must email me an entry. Email should be sent to Subject line, "Book Giveaway."

3. Extra entries if you Facebook post, blog, add a comment to my blog, or tweet about the contest. (Note, tweets should include my @SCookRay address so I can find them and also mention and link to the contest.)

4. Contest ends midnight EST on March 20. Winner will be announced on the blog on March 21.

Good luck!


  1. Oh my gosh, such a great contest! Yes, yes, yes, please enter me :-)

  2. Definitely entering. The hard part if I win is which book to pick from all the ones you've featured! *fingers crossed*

  3. Amazing giveaway! I always love discovering new blogs and books that I had not heard of so thank you for this giveaway!


  4. Fabulous idea - I heard about this on Chick Lit Central's FB page. Count me in! :)
