Birthday Cake Giveaway

Today's the official release day for The Cold Kiss of Death, and my last celebratory giveaway. So after the fab recipes for cocktails in last week's giveaways, I hope you'll all join me in raising a glass of your favourite drink, and toast my second book's release along with a large piece of cyber cake *g*.



But it's not just my book that is released this month - over at Fangs, Fur & Fey [if you haven't already found it, it's a great site to find new authors and info about . . . Fangs, Fur & Fey in fiction *g*]. These books have their release this month too! So a big congratulations to all of the authors! Whoo Hoo!







So onto this, the last week's giveaway*. To win your choice out of the 8 books above, please leave a comment telling me your favourite cake! Right now my fav cake [and this changes on a daily basis, after all this is *cake* we're talking about ~ LOL!] is New York Cheesecake! nomnomnom!

One winner to be drawn by Random.org. Contest open to all, and ends end of day [anywhere] Thursday 23rd July 2009.

I comment = 1 entry

Please help me spread the word about The Cold Kiss of Death and the giveaways with a mention of the giveaway on your blog/live journal/myspace/facebook/twitter/etc [post the link to the mention into the comments again] and win yourself more entries into this week's giveaway :-) 1 link = 1 entry

Which means you could end up with more entries into the metaphorical hat, so what are you waiting for? Get posting and linking!! Good Luck!!

x/posted to my LJ: leave a comment here or there.

* I'm retreating to the writing cave now as the deadline for The Bitter Seed of Magic - Spellcrackers.com book 3 - is fast approaching, so I won't be around quite as often, but keep an eye out for a couple more chances to win a copy of The Cold Kiss of Death in the next few week's on some other blogs ~ details will be posted here as and when :-).

ETA: Last night I was lucky enough to have a celebratory dinner with my good friend and fellow author Alex Bell for the release of her book - Jasmyn - and Yay! Alex and her mum had made these fantastic cup cakes!

If I'm very honest, I don't really like cake. I know, I know, I'm weird, but I don't. The only cakes I will eat are Sugar Ring Doughnuts. That's it. Nothing else for me thanks.

Can you imagine, all those birthday cakes, and I never had any for myself! Haha!

My favorite cake is the Dulce de Leche Cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory.

Christine said...

Dulce de leche cheesecake. Or any caramel cake, really. :)

Wendy said...

Congrats on your new release!!

My favorite cake is one of the two that I got for my 21st birthday - my parents got me this chocolate with buttercream frosting that was just SO delicious! Loved it.

And to make it even better, I wanted a pirate on top of it and they did it! No matter that it looked like a cake for a 12-year old boy, heh.

Wendy said...

Oh man. Now I really want some cake!

Wendy said...

By the way, I posted a link to your giveaway on my blog's sidebar. :)

My fav cake would have to be a cake I had when I was 11 and my mom put in quarters and I accidently swallowed one.
:)
Yep, that was a memorable chocolate cake.

Vic said...

I've never really thought of cheesecake as cake, but I do love me a good slice of (or whole!) baked cheesecake.
If you're talking about cake cake, it's gotta be carrot cake with that gorgeous cream cheese icing on top (or maybe just the icing and scrap the cake?) or Brasilian prestigio cake.

Yum! So many fantastic cakes, the cravings are hitting hard with reading all your comments, thank you to everyone. And thanks so much for your links to the post, and to pics of cakes you like and have made - Wow! some great ones there [although it does make the cake cravings worse, but hey *g*]

But, speaking of cake cravings, last night I was lucky enough to have a celebratory dinner with my good friend and fellow author Alex Bell for the release of her book - Jasmyn - and Yay! Alex and her mum had made these fantastic cup cakes!

Enjoy,
