Here’s how you can enter:

  • Leaving a comment on this post will get you one entry. 
  • To get three more entries, post about this on your blog with a link back to this post.
  • If you don’t have a blog, email five friends telling them about this giveaway and cc me on the email so I know you’ve sent it. This will get you three more entries. If you have a blog and still want to email five friends, be my guest.
  • To get another entry, tell me you’ve purchased and/or read The Wednesday Sisters by Meg Waite Clayton. This is an honor system, so please don’t lie.
  • To get another entry, tell me you’ve purchased and/or read A Year of Fog by Michelle Richmond. Again, this is an honor system, blah blah blah.
  • If you do four of the five options, I’ll give you an extra four entries. Get it? For doing four things, I’ll give you four extra entries. Aren’t I clever?

Here’s the best part: For every 50 entries, one person will be drawn. Up to five winners. SO, if I have 100 entries, then I’ll draw two names. If I have 150 entries, I’ll draw three names. So it behooves you (don’t you love that word, behoove?) to not only get as many entries in yourself, but to encourage other people to enter.

Sorry, rest-of-the-world…this contest is only open to residents of the US and Canada.

Oh, and this contest will close on Saturday, July 12th July 19th. I’ll draw a winner on Sunday, July 13th July 20th.

    This is just amazing — how did you swing this?

    This post counts for one, right? Plus, I blogged about it here: (that’s 3 more.)

    I have read (and loved) THE WEDNESDAY SISTERS. Here’s the link to my review: (that’s 1 more)

    I don’t think this counts, but just in case: THE YEAR OF FOG is sitting in my TBR pile.

    I also e-mailed five of my friends and cc’d you on it – that’s 3 more.

    Plus, I did 4 out of 5 for another 4 entries.

    I think that gives me 12 entries (I think). I sure hope I win!

    What a great contest! I can’t say I’ve read the two books needed for extra entries, but I am a fan of Douglas Preston and would definitely devour The Monster of Florence. I will also be posting on my blog, so put me down for four votes!

  139. thekoolaidmom

    FREE Books? did someone say FREE BOOKS?? and 14 FREE BOOKS at that?!! Count me in!

    Tresspassers Will Be Baptized looks fun; just the kind of shock’em-n-mock’em title I go for.

    BTW, I blogged your contest here:

    Oh! JOY!

    Care sent me. I love to read. I am disabled so reading for me is a no-brainer but then so is blogging. But I certainly wouldn’t mind free books and I always pass on my books to other people. I’ll put a link on my blog.

  147. Michele

    Wow! This is an awesome giveaway!!!
    – I posted on my blog here.
    – I have read Year of Fog.
    – Wednesday Sisters is waiting for me at the library but not read it yet.
    – I emailed 15 folks (my book club and my family) about the giveaway.
    – I think that’s four options, so hopefully I’ll get a bonus.

    Thanks so much to you and Hatchette!!!!

    What a great contest, and such wonderful books. Would love to read them all. Please enter me, and thanks.

  342. Linda Pinto

    I am so glad to find your site. This is a wonderful giveaway. I love to read.

    I have not read or purchased The Wednesday Sisters by Meg Waite Clayton but it sounds like a book that I will now check out at the book store. The Amazon comments make this book sound like something I would like to read.

    I haven’t read A Year Of The Fog either but I love mysteries and can imagine the torment of the main Character, Abby Mason in trying to find the child. The Amazon blurb gives me good reason to seek out this book.

    Please enter me in the giveaway.

  343. Susan

    Great giveaway, these look like great books.

  344. Patricia Simpkin

    This is a FABULOUS contest!!! I’d love to win this one; I am an avid reader.

  396. Karen Haney

    I can’t imagine winning but being a member of a book club of teachers (who can SO NOT afford to buy books) this would be such a treat! I have just started to request ARCs this summer and writing reviews and have been surprisingly successful with both including now having personal contact with 3 authors I reviewed who email me advice about my own writing, etc. I have forwarded this contest to all my book club members but it would be great to go next week to club and say I had one. Thanks for listening! Karen Haney
