I recently shared that I extremely spontaneously decided to move to Denmark. And, as expected of a quick relocation, my last two days in Berlin were extremely hectic. Finishing packing and shipping stuff, selling and giving away furniture, repainting the flat, running around the city on different errands. But on top of all else, there was one more thing to take care of: I found out I still had four Kingdom of Ashes and one Men and Monsters paperbacks.
I had initially ordered all of them planning to run more Goodreads giveaways as I’ve done in the past. But then Goodreads changed the giveaway rules, and this was no longer possible. And so I stuffed them in a cupboard to wait for the time I find a way to run a giveaway or find interested bloggers, and I almost forgot about their existence until it was time to move.
But what was I going to do with the books? I couldn’t possibly take them with me; I didn’t have an extra molecule of space in my luggage. And there was no time to mail them around. And so, I came up with an idea: I would sign them and donate them to open phone booth libraries around the city. And so I spent half of a crazy day running around the city, dropping off books, but I hope it was worth it!
Read on to see how to get them in case you have trips to Berlin planned soon!
If you’ve missed the Nightfall series so far, now is the time to get all published books for free!
The New Year sale on Smashwords runs until Jan 1st. Happy reading!
Do you want to win a pretty Men and Monsters paperback? Signed copy plus bonus bookish gifts?
If yes, keep reading…
Now that Men and Monsters has been out for over a month, it’s time to start giving updates about Book 3!
The title changed multiple times during the writing process as the story itself evolved and previous titles no longer fit. But now that I’ve written a large part of the first draft and the plot is mostly finalized, I’ve finally come up with a title that works.
And the title is… Continue reading
I recently had the opportunity to send my very first Men and Monsters paperback ARCs to three lucky winners:
As promised, winners received signed Men and Monsters paperback ARCs, as well as signed copies of Kingdom of Ashes, character cards and other surprise goodies:
I’m in the mood for gift giving!
A couple of things have been happening:
1) Today, April 30th, Kingdom of Ashes celebrates its half-year anniversary. Time flies!
2) My birthday is coming up next Friday, May 5th. And, since I’m a huge Tolkien fan, I want to honor the Hobbit tradition of giving gifts to your guests on your own birthday.
What does this mean for you?
I’ve set up a giveaway for a signed Kingdom of Ashes paperback. The winner will also get exclusive character cards, fun bookish gifts, and, of course, chocolate.
Unlike Goodreads giveaways, where thousands of people enter, my giveaways are small and cozy and you have high chances of winning 🙂
Also, for those of you who haven’t read Kingdom of Ashes yet, but would like to, I’m giving away free ebooks between May 1 and May 30. Just message me your email and preferred format.
Happy reading! ❤
Congratulations to Ciro, who won a signed Kingdom of Ashes paperback, sighed character cards, and more!
To be honest, I wasn’t planning another Goodreads giveaways until the book’s one year anniversary. Then I thought that maaaaaybe in the super unlikely case that 4,000 or more people enter the giveaway, I should really do another one.
How many do you think entered?
I’m humbled and blown away. And I’m sooo doing another Goodreads giveaway right now! It opens next week!
Okay, I realize the chances to win a Goodreads giveaways may be pretty slim. But you know what Giveaway is super easy to win? My much smaller and cozier Cover Reveal Giveaway! It’s open until Feb. 15th! And if you win, you’ll get not just a book, but also fun prizes, such as this bookish bag:
Guys, have I mentioned I send chocolate with my books?
In case I haven’t, let me say it:
I SEND CHOCOLATE WITH ALL MY BOOKS!
None of the chocolates you see on the pictures are for me. They are all for YOU!
If you’re expecting goodies for me and can’t eat chocolate for whatever reason, please let me know and I’ll replace it by whatever you prefer!
Happy reading and good luck in the giveaways! ❤
Thanks so much to the super sweet RaeAnne for hosting me ❤
Kingdom of Ashes and One Thing Every Writer Should Know
Lovely bookish people! Today is my big day! Kingdom of Ashes is out and waiting for you to grab it!!!
Those of you who pre-ordered or won a giveaway will soon have fun gifts flying their way 🙂
One thing I learned about giftwrapping: Getting four different small chocolates per person instead of a single big one wasn’t my best idea 😀
Takes forever to assemble. Note to self: Just get big chocolates next time. Easy to wrap and people will be happier 😀
Thanks for sharing this journey with me ❤ Happy reading!
With less than 2 weeks left to publication, things are getting exciting for Kingdom of Ashes! A bunch of blog reviews are coming in the next couple of weeks, and the first one is already up. Head out to Magic of Books to read Magda’s insightful thoughts!
Also, I was recently a guest at Cover2Cover, where I talked about the joys of being an indie creator.
And since no book release would be complete without gifts, below is a list of my active giveaways:
