Giveaway: Shady Lady - Ann Aguirre

Wow! Time Flies! It's week # 11 of my 16 weeks of giveaways to celebrate the the upcoming US release of book 2  The Cold Kiss of Death (out 26th April), and the UK release of book 3 The Bitter Seed of Magic (Out Now and available from The Book Depository with Free WorldWide Del) *insert shameless self-promo plug* *g* Giveaway now closed!

BIG THANKS again to everyone who's bought it! You all Rock!.  And Hello and Welcome to all you new blog visitors and followers, and thanks to everyone for joining in with the celebrations.

So this week's giveaway is for
Shady Lady: Corine Solomon # 3 (US) (UK)
by the fabulous (SuperWriter*!) Ann Aguirre.

Here's the blurb from Amazon

I'd spent my whole life settling, trying not to attract attention, and generally doing whatever it took to keep other people happy. I didn't want to do that again. Not when I was finally comfortable in my own skin. Sure, there were certain challenges, like a drug lord who wanted me dead, and the fact that I owed a demon a debt that he could call due at any moment. But everybody's got problems, right?

Whenever Corine Solomon touches an object, she immediately knows its history. But her own future concerns her more and more. Now back in Mexico, she's running her pawnshop and trying to get a handle on her strange new powers, for she might need them. And soon.

Then former ally Kel Ferguson walks through her door. Heavily muscled and tattooed, Kel looks like a convict but calls himself a holy warrior. This time, he carries a warning for Corine: the Montoya cartel is coming for her--but they don't just pack automatic weapons. The Montoyas use warlocks, shamans, voodoo priests--anything to terminate trouble. And Corine has become enemy number one...

Ooh! I can't wait! And there's not long to go now, as Shady Lady releases in the US on the 5th April, and the UKon the 12th May!

Now there's three things I think of when it comes to the Corine books, and they are Butch, the Blond Chihuahua, Mexico, and cocktails! And the last two together made me think of holidays! Yay!

Now Mexico is one place I'd love to visit for a holiday! And if you want a chance to win a copy of Shady Lady, then please leave me a comment telling me your favourite place for a holiday, either one you've been to, or one you'd like to go to.

And don't forget to check out the Giveaway Schedule here. And so you don't miss out on a chance of winning any of the wonderful books in the coming weeks, why not follow me? (following is not a condition of entry).


*SuperWriter Ann writes urban fantasy (the 'awesome and often spine-chilling' Corine Solomon series), romantic science fiction (the 'OMG wonderful, and wait till you read Aftermath: Ann is a brilliant, evil, character torturing, author' Jax series), apocalyptic paranormal romance (the 'so looking forward to these' Ellen Connor books with Carrie Lofty), paranormal romantic suspense 'with swoonworthy heros'(as Ava Gray), and post-apocalyptic dystopian young adult fiction: Enclave. 'You will need to read about Deuce and Fade, they will blow you away'!Yep, I'm a big fan of Ms. Aguirre's writing . . . in case you hadn't noticed *g*.

Please note: My usual blog policy is that I try to reply to all comments on the blog, but for ease of admin I won't be replying to any comments made on any of the giveaway posts during the 16 weeks. Sorry, but it makes it much harder to sort out the winner. However I do read and enjoy all the comments, and will, of course, continue to reply to comments on any other post, so if you have a question for me, leave it on one of those, thank you :-)

All book links lead to Amazon (UK/US) or the Book Depository, and contain affiliate links. I've decided to go affiliate as I love giving books away (and not just as a way of shameless self-promo), but boy does it get expensive.

x/posted to LJ. Comment here or there. One entry per person.

Don't forget to check the blog's sidebar for more chances to win my books, and the opportunity to help those in Japan through the British Red Cross at Genre for Japan, where you can bid for the chance to have your name as a character in my next book, or a critique of your writing by me, starting Monday 28th March. Plus there's over a hundred other wonderful donations, so why not go and check them out!

For a holiday away from home, I love love love Jamaica! There's a couples-only resort in Negril... sparkling blue water, cool drinks, sandy beaches. Pardon me while I go there in my mind right this moment. :) ksimon47[at]

Looking at the snow and ice outside my front door, I'm thinking some place warm and tropical. If I could take a vacation right now, without children, I'd choose Jamaica. Warm sandy beaches, rich, luscious mountains, Bob Marley, coffee, rum. Mmmm. I wonder if they have hot cabana boys there...

First up, Ann rocks! Second, OMG SHADY LADY!

My favorite place to vacation thus far has been Russia. Not the place you'd expect for a little R&R, but I've been twice - and loved it. This fall I'm going to Paris with my mother for a cycling tour. Well, she's doing the tour, I'll be curling up in a cafe somewhere soaking in the atmosphere and pastries.

Gah!! I can't WAIT for Shady Lady!! I LOVE Ann! I'm her personal knitter, LoL

I've been a lot of places, and the Caribbean is one of my favs. My family is from Puerto Rico and I've taken a cruise through the Southern islands. I'll be moving to Okinawa soon, so I'm sure that will be AMAZING!


Suzan Isik said...

Let's see, I'd have to say somewhere in the Mediterranean. My family is from Turkey, so I know a lot of good spots there, especially in Antalya. Lots of history, lots of sunshine, beautiful area.

My favorite holiday place is the Tennessee mountains with my best friend.

LSUReader said...

I am obtusely answering this like an American. My favorite holiday place is South Louisiana, for my favorite HOLIDAY, Mardi Gras. Such fun. Great food, people and music. It’s all there.

Thanks for the giveaway. (Email in profile.)

Mariee said...

My favourite place for a long weekend break is Cambridge UK, wandering around the universities and museus. I would love to take a holiday to Iceland.

Aik said...

I love visiting the Cameron Highlands! It's a great place to relax!

I loved Aruba, but our closest (and most affordable) vacation is a cabin in Vermont. I also love going on cruises - unpack once, visit multiple places, lots of drinking...what's not to like? :)

Does it have to be a place I've been? If so, depending on my mood/time/funds, my favorites are either a long weekend on Catalina Island or camping in southern Utah (specifically, Zion National Park or Bryce Canyon).

If it can be a dream holiday, Australia. I've a friend who lives on the Gold Coast, and for years I've been dreaming of spending some time there! ...someday.

I'm rissatoo on Twitter (and on gmail, actually!) :)

Thanks, Suzanne, for the chance to win Shady Lady. I have Blue Diablo and Hellfire waiting for me on my TBR...


Vins said...

I would like to visit many places on this fair Earth :) and I can't really single out any one of them...but for a perfect holiday I'd choose someplace to be a bit closer to the nature...relax, enjoy hikes, things like that...actually I've always wanted to visit big national parks like Yellowstone for instance :)

thanks for another great giveaway :)


RachyBee said...

My fave holiday spot is actually Surfers Paridise on Queenslands coast here in Australia. I love the atmosphere and the shopping--it's brilliant!

When I was a child my father and his wife used to take my sister and I to Lake Shasta in Northern California. I remember camping (real camping with toilets dug in the dirt, cooking by campfire, etc) on isolated beaches at the lake, and camping on a houseboat, diving off the top of the houseboat (even though I was desperately afraid of heights, I would still jump off the houseboat top, laughing hysterically and ending up going so deep into the water that by the time I came up for air, I was almost ready to just breathe under water), waterskiing for hours, and swimming. Those were some of the funnest times I had with my father and stepmom's family. Fun for all.

Tricksy. Favourite Holiday place for me is Oban, you've got great whisky, wonderful seafood and perhaps best of all a lot of great days out within easy travelling distance.

For a writer its inspiring and when you can rent a croft with a real fire, perhaps one of the most magical places to get into the flavour of days gone by.

tetewa said...

The Bahamas is my favorite holiday place, love the weather and scenery!

Tina said...

Oh, that's a tough one. If I wanted to get away from it all and just relax, hike, be with nature, I'd say Alaska. It is an amazing place.

If I was looking for food or culture, it would be London or Rome.

And close to home, it would be Montreal.

Thanks for another awesome contest.

Our favorite vacation spot is Maui. Kids had a blast and the trip gave us some wonderful memory days. For a dream vacation, would love to go to Italy, and stay in b&b's in the countryside.
