A Super Excited I-Actually-Did-It Sommer-time Giveaway

In the way back machine (end of 2005) I said to myself, "Self, I want to focus on getting into print." So that was the year I focused on wedging my foot in the door to print. Here is my bookshelf...

This year, just a few weeks ago, I filled that last shelf. The bookshelf was full, which was my goal. It holds all the print anthologies I'm in and copies of all my books that are available in print. So even I was...Wow. I did it. And we bought a new bookshelf for me to start filling. (That one is vintage, baby. It was my grandmother's).

To celebrate actually filling that thing, (I never thought I would) I'm giving away a few of these!

If you can't read them choices are Hard Lessons, Lucky 13, Base Nature, Gritty: Rough Erotic Fiction, Learning to Drown, Big Bad, Long Lost, The Best of Sommer Marsden, The Zombie Exterminators, Angry Sex and Coupling Two. Winners choose the book they'd like to receive.

What do you have to do? Just leave a comment here in the comment section below. Nothing spectacular. Hi, will do. Whatever you like. (There are more ways, keep reading). Make sure you leave your email address as well so I can contact you. I'll send out books after the giveaway time has passed (Leaving it up until August 13, 2013). Three winners will be chosen. One of the books mailed out will have a $20 Barnes and Noble gift card tucked inside. I'll let my kids randomly pick a number between 1 and 3 to choose.

How else to enter? Follow me on Twitter if you don't (let me know in the comments), follow me on Facebook or Pinterest or Goodreads. Or all four! (Each follow counts as an entry. Just make sure to tell me in the comments where you've followed me). And finally, RT this giveaway on any of the sites (Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest) and that counts as an entry too (again, make sure to tell me!).

That's it. This is something I've been looking forward to for a long time. Filling that shelf. Fingers crossed that I get to fill a whole new one now. :)
