Happy Labor Day, and have some books!

By MOTHart
Ah, yes, it's Labor Day, and I am only too happy to have the rest of the day free. I did have to work a few hours early this morning and yesterday morning, but mostly it's been a four-day weekend. I'm feeling good, so I thought I'd share. Today I'm giving away books! A lot of books!!

Choice number 1: Cassi is a good friend, and one of my RWA chaptermates. She writes sexy urban fantasy. Her next book, Shadow Rising, is out this month, Sep 25, and is available for pre-order. But you can get her first one from me for free :)

Choice number 2: Thea has created a delicious paranormal world, starting with the first book of The Elder Races series, Dragon Bound, one of my favs (along with Oracle's Moon)! This is a novella in the series. Her latest book, Hunter's Season, comes out this month, Sep 18.

Choice number 3: For those fans of historicals, here's one of the top authors in the genre, Tessa Dare. Her newest in the series, A Lady by Nidnight, just came out Aug 28. I met the lovely author at RWA National Conference and fan-girled, of course :)

Choice number 4: Anne is a new-to-me author, though this book is not her first rodeo. It is the first book of her new Dark Souls series. I also met her at the RWA Conference, and she's very friendly, personable, and encouraging!

Choice number 5: This is a postapocalyptic romance written by Nico. I met Nico at a book signing in SoCal along with his amazing partner in crime, Zoe Archer (also one of my fav authors). We talked for nearly two hours! He's such a great guy as well as a great author. He's also writing a series with Zoe for Avon Impulse. Look for the Ether Chronicles.

And choice number 6: Welcome to a strange world of supernatural creatures! Roland's creative descriptions, dialogue, setting, and historical eye keep you turning pages. You'll love Victor, his dry wit, and the fantastic cast of characters. I haven't met Roland face to face, but I've followed his blog, Writing in the Crosshairs, for a long time, and he's thoroughly kept me entertained. Roland, I love when the ghosts take over your blog!

Alright, to win, you don't have to follow me. I know--crazy, huh? I want you to follow if you like my posts, not to win stuff. But you do need to either leave me a comment or Tweet me @AngMcCallister to let me know you want to win. Let me know which book you'd like, and on Friday, I'll randomize and then contact the winners. Don't forget to tell your friends. Again, Happy Labor Day!


  1. I'm halfway through Roland's book and it's great!

  2. Roland definitely has a way with characters! And he can create a mood, lol. I can't wait for the next one to come out. I got some coworkers reading his work :)

  3. Thanks, Angela. Victor sends a wink your way. Now, Alice is jealous. In the Navy you are taught hand-to-hand combat, right? :-)

    Since you like when ghosts visit my blog, the ghost of William Faulkner shows up today at 3 PM Central time just for you and another friend, Melinda!

    I'm glad you're enjoying Victor's first adventure, Alex. Alice winked your way. I think it was a way to get Victor jealous! :-)

  4. I am indeed taught some hand-to-hand! And I'm an expert rifleman on the M16 and M14. I also know my way around a Beretta 9mm. Even so, I'm shaking in my boots. Alice is one tough chica :) I'll wink back at Victor when Alice isn't looking, lol!

  5. I'm into freebies of any kind, and I'll even give plug space on my blog as an added incentive as well. :D

    Seriously though, I am always looking into expanding my horizons as it applies to the written word (just started reading YA for contractual review purposes and some of what I've read is quite good), so romance of any kind would be good to check out.

  6. That would be fantastic :) And I included a little variety just in case. I've read a lot of YA, too. Hunger Games, of course, which I loved. Beth Revis. Elana Johnson. One of my favs who's a departure from typical YA books is Simone Elkeles. Love her!

    Thanks for being such a long-time follower!

  7. You're more than welcome.

    I'll give this a quick mention on my blog tomorrow and on Facebook tonight.

  8. Hi,
    I think I met Tessa Dare at New York. Maybe I didn't? I am horrible at names. I stood in line next to Denise Hawkins. I think I gushed horribly about her books. (I'm a fan. I love everthing you write, etc.) You know that stuff writers hate to hear.

    The Legend of Victor Standish should fit in well with all the Grimm episodes I've been watching. :) Thanks.

  9. Excellent choice! I love Victor. And when Alice is introduced, I thought Roland might have lost his mind making her character, but he nailed it :) She's one of my favs.

    Thank you so much for coming by, Morgan.

  10. Hi Angela! These all sounds so, so good, but I would go with #2 if *forced*. LOL Thank you! :)

  11. Consider your arm twisted :) Thanks for coming by and commenting!

  12. There's still a few more hours to get a comment in to win a fee ebook :) Just let me know a preference.

  13. That's quite a list of books! New follower.
