Contest Monday: Win a Copy of Once Dead

I hope everyone had a fantastic Mother's Day. My mom sure got pampered. I slaved away all day in the kitchen. :-) But now that it's Monday, that means it's time to give away a free book! This week's prize is an ARC of Once Dead, Twice Shy by Kim Harrison, due out on May 26th. So you can get it early!

About the Book (From the author's website): "Madison's prom was killer—literally. For some reason she's been targeted by a dark reaper—yeah, that kind of reaper—intent on getting rid of her, body and soul. But before the reaper could finish the job, Madison was able to snag his strange, glowing amulet and get away.

Now she's stuck on Earth—dead but not gone. Somehow the amulet gives her the illusion of a body, allowing her to toe the line between life and death. She still doesn't know why the dark reaper is after her, but she's not about to just sit around and let fate take its course.

With a little ingenuity, some light-bending, and the help of a light reaper (one of the good guys! Maybe . . . ), her cute crush, and oh yeah, her guardian angel, Madison's ready to take control of her own destiny once and for all, before it takes control of her.

Well, if she believed in that stuff."

How to Enter: To enter the contest, simply leave a comment on this post. Or, if you can't leave a comment, send an email to shadyglade (AT) mail (DOT) com with the subject line "Once Dead Contest" and include your name, your email address, and the correct subject line.

How to earn Extra Entries:
  1. Post about the contest on your blog or website. Post a link in the comments, or email the link to me.
  2. Become a follower of this Blog (post a comment to let me know).
  3. Come up with and post your own Contest Monday (post a comment with the link).

Rules: The contest is open until Monday, May 18th, 2009. Everyone in the US and Canada is eligible, even if you've won a contest in the past. The winner will be chosen by a random number generator. One free entry per person allowed. See above for instructions to earn extra contest entries. Questions? Post a comment or email and ask.

And don't forget the all the other things we got going on in the world of contests! The contest for Wings is open until Thursay (since I posted it late), and the winner will be announced this Friday. And this week is your last chance to enter theDesign a Contest Monday banner contest. And last, but certainly not least, there's a new poll over in the sidebar to vote on.

Good luck to everyone! I'll announce the contest winner of this book on Tuesday, May 19th. Look for an announcement on Friday for past week's winner.

Once Dead, Twice Shy will be released on May 26th, but you can pre-order your copy from Amazon.com right now:
