Good Friday, Winners & Giveaways

To begin this post I’d like to wish everyone a “Good Friday” and remind you that for many, many years farmers have planted their crops on this day to ensure a good harvest. 

May what you sow today be a blessing for those who receive it. And, may the Easter holiday be everything you want it to be.

Now for this post. This will be a round-up of sorts. I have a number of winners to congratulate from previous book giveaways and several new book giveaways to announce.

The winners of “To Sin With A Scoundrel” by Cara Elliott are: G.S. M. of Houston, TX; Crystal B. of Beloit, WI; Joyce S. of Conroe, TX; Ann C. of Sioux Falls, SD; and Eve D. of Centreville, VA. Congratulations to the winners and thanks to everyone who entered the contest.

The winners of “Just Let Me Lie Down” by Kristin Van Ogtrop are: Eleanor H. of Greenville, PA; Sharon B. of Albuquerque, NM; and Karen K. of Monessen, PA. Congratulations to these winners and thanks to everyone who entered.

Now for a number of new giveaways. These giveaways are a diverse genre.

First, thanks to Valerie and the Hachette Book Group I have three copies of
“Presumed Innocent” by Scott Turow to giveaway. This giveaway is being offered in anticipation of the highly-awaited sequel “Innocent” which releases May 4.

The giveaway is open to U.S. and Canadian residents only and no post office boxes can be accepted. To enter, send me an e-mail (mcbookshelf@gmail.com) with “Win Presumed” in the subject line and be sure to include your name and address in the body of the e-mail. The giveaway will end on Saturday, April 17.

“Presumed Innocent” brings to life our worst nightmare: that of an ordinary citizen facing conviction for the most terrible of crimes. Prosecutor Rusty Sabich is transformed from accuser to accused when he is handed an explosive case--that of the brutal murder of a woman who happens to be his former lover.

Next, thanks to Anna and the Hachette Audio Group I have three copies of these two audio books to giveaway. The giveaway is open to U.S. and Canadian residents only and no post office boxes can be accepted. To enter, send me an e-mail with “Win” and the book’s title in the subject line and be sure to include your name and address in the body of the e-mail. Both giveaways will end on Saturday, April 17.

The first audio is “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” (unabridged) by Seth Grahame-Smith.

While Abraham Lincoln is widely lauded for saving a Union and freeing millions of slaves, his valiant fight against the forces of the undead has remained in the shadows for hundreds of years. That is, until Seth Grahame-Smith stumbled upon The Secret Journal of Abraham Lincoln, and became the first living person to lay eyes on it in more than 140 years.

The second audio is “The Art of Choosing” (unabridged) by Sheena Iyengar and

read by Orlagh Cassidy.

The nationally recognized, leading authority on choice exposes the surprising
truths behind the decisions we make everyday.

The last giveaway is for “Iron Man 2” by Alexander Irvine. "I am Iron Man." With those words, billionaire industrialist Tony Stark revealed his secret identity. Now a famous high-tech superhero, he uses his powers to protect mankind. Yet things are not going well for Tony Stark. The U.S. military demands control of the most powerful weapon on earth--the Iron Man suit. His beautiful new assistant has a strange, mysterious agenda while his best friend, Rhodey, has betrayed him. And Tony is hunted by a vengeful
Russian criminal armed with a lethal technology that may be stronger than Tony's suit. But even as he fights his demons, the hero faces his greatest threat--one that no armor can defend against . . .

Thanks to Anna and the Hachette Book Group I have five copies of this book to giveaway. The giveaway is open to U.S. and Canadian residents only and no post office boxes can be accepted. To enter, send me an e-mail with “Win Iron Man” in the subject line and be sure to include your name and address in the body of the e-mail. The giveaway will end on Saturday, April 17.

That’s the giveaways for now. Hope everyone has a good Friday. Be sure to check back this weekend as I hope to have the sidebars updated with the upcoming authors guest blogging in April, as well as a review to post. In addition, I plan to have the contest page updated with these new giveaways.

  5. Happy Good Friday and Easter to you as well, Mason. Interesting about the farmers planting crops. Makes sense though, since Easter coincides with Spring Equinox.
