ARC Contest!

I have an ARC of my Sept 1st Samhain release, ALL FIRED UP, to give away, so I've decided to run a little contest and do just that.

First of all, the link to the Coming Soon page on Samhain's site:

http://samhainpublishing.com/coming/all-fired-up

And the book's blurb:

Alrik Gunn knows from bitter experience that change isn’t always for the better. From the woman who annihilated his Viking clan to the goddess who tricked him into centuries of slavery, betrayal has dogged his existence. The Goddess of Love is going to let him avenge his family, but for a price. As a Phoenix—a merchant of change—he must grant a human woman three chances to change her life.

When former Irish dancer Calleigh McCarthy tosses a carved-bird statue that belonged to her ex into a roaring bonfire, she unwittingly summons an honest-to-god Phoenix. A sexy, irresistible Viking who offers her an unbelievable bonus—three get-out-of-her-crappy-life-free cards. She’ll take it, even if it means guarding her cautious heart against the dark pain behind Alrik’s eyes.

Alrik has vowed never to let love sway him again, but Calleigh’s innocence and kindness throw him off balance. Yet even as his need for revenge fades and his love for her grows, he is bound to let her make her choices without interfering.

One wrongly chosen word, and any chance for happiness—for either of them—will go up in flames.

Now, the deets:

To enter the contest and a chance to win the ARC of ALL FIRED UP, here's what to do:

1. Post a comment in the comments section of this blog post.
2. Tweet something about the book on Twitter including @Kristen_Painter and the hashtag #afuarc.
3. Post something on your own blog about the book, then comment with the link on this blog so I know about it.
4. Link to this contest on your blog.
5. Join my yahoo group: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/kristenpainter/join

Each one of these gets you a entry. Do all five and you get five shots to win. You've got a week - the winner will be announced on Wednesday, August 12th.

Comments? Questions? Are you ALL FIRED UP yet?

  2. Oooh, I want to be entered! I don't have twitter but I might link to it.
    So you have your own yahoo group? What a cool idea.
    I tried to look around romance divas a few times, but I'm SO confused. Am I supposed to just make up a username and password to be part of a forum? Or is there some sort of sign in somewhere? Sorry, I just am not sure how it works but I wanted to let you know that I've looked at it a few times. My brain is technically challenged.
