Skyla Day!

****Giveaway Closed****
I have declared today to be Skyla Day, all day, here on the blog.

Why you ask?  Well, Skyla is cool like that, and we are celebrating the release for:

Skyla's 3rd book in Demons of Oblivion series.
What’s a woman to do when her dad’s the antichrist, her grandma’s the devil, the end of the world is at her doorstep, and she’s out to avenge the murders of her husband and kids? 

Kill everything in her way. 

Quarter-demon Peri Takata exists with but one goal in mind: annihilate everyone responsible for the death of her family. Then—her need for vengeance quelled—she plans to take her own life. 

Her mission brings her to the vampire Zara Lain, the only known survivor of the event that destroyed Peri’s family five years ago. Hunting down a secret society of those who don’t want to be found has its challenges, however, especially when forces are working to keep the antichrist’s daughter very much alive. The apocalypse is closing in and Peri may be playing a role in it whether she wants to or not. 

But when a heart long-thought dead begins to beat again with love for another, she’s not so sure about anything anymore.

So, I have 3 posts scheduled through the day today.
(I will add the links to the posts here at their titles as the become available today.  All will be up by noon, because I can't wait to post them.)
  1. Lineage Review - non-spoiler
  2. Teasers!  Yes, I got a few 2 line teasers from Skyla that are non-spoiler as well.
  3. BIG NEW NEWS!!  Yes, this will be up a noon.  I have some wonderful new news to share.  I just got the word last night. Yeah!!
So, big day right!

And now I'm feeling in the mood as I write this for a... dare I say it?  a Giveaway!  What do you think?  You pick the book of Skyla's you need.  If you haven't started the series, I'll order you the first one, Bloodlines.  If you read that one and need the second, then just say you need Hunter.  And if you are all caught up and want the third book, then I'll order you Lineage.

Sound good?  One winner, one book by Skyla.

Book Depository has Bloodlines & Hunter are up, Lineage isn't through their system yet, so if you pick Lineage as soon as it becomes available I'll order it up for the winner.

And since I said Book Depository, Yes, I'll open this up to International entries. :)

  10. To make up for not being able to comment yesterday on the actual 'Skyla Day' (& what's up with that, iPhone? Don't you love me?), I have commented EVERYWHERE! muahahahaha!
    I also tweeted & retweeted stuff when I could.
    So Mel, do I need to add it up, or can I be lazy? Lemme know... ;)

    I am looking forward to some more fun reads, I can tell you that!

  11. Oh. And even though it's a day later, I prefer to think of it as me just prolonging the joy of 'Skyla Day'. So Skyla, congrats!! Hope you are hangover-free today! ;)
    (...and in the unlikely event I win, I need Hunter next.)
