Follower contest with series giveaway!!!

Okay, I admit it. I am a series junkie 100%. When I find a good book, I really, really hate for it to end. So I try to find books in a series so the reading experience doesn't have to end right away. My faithful followers...You have stuck through my many reviews of various series, many of which I have loved. So I think it's time to give something back. :)

Currently, I am at 36 followers. Should I reach 50, I will giveaway one book in a series. If I reach 75, I will add an additional book...and should I reach 100, I will add another for a total of 3 potential books.

Without further ado, let me introduce the potential series' up for grabs:

I will give 1 book away from Rachel Caine's Morganville Vampire series, 1 book from Caine's Weather Warden series, and 1 book from Charlaine Harris' Southern Vampire Mysteries series, should I reach 100 followers. Now here's the fun part: You choose the series, and you choose which book in the series. Initially, I was going to giveaway the first book in each series, but then I thought I would leave that decision up to the winner. Perhaps you already own or have read the first in the series and want the third book instead...whatever the case may be, the choice is yours. *For the Caine's Morganville Vampire series, if you choose the first book, I will automatically send you the book pictured above, which includes book 1 and 2 of the series, unless you otherwise specify.

Okay, so here are the details:
  • This contest is open internationally. As long as The Book Depository ships to your country, that is. :)
  • The contest is open until January 31st.
  • Leave your name, link to your blog (if you have one), email address, and which book from which series you would like to win. No book, no entry.
  • You MUST be a follower, either new or old.
  • +3 Entries for old followers

  8. A great idea for a contest! I've advertised it everywhere. :P

  9. This is great, Lily. I promoted it on Twitter--hope you get overwhelmed with followers. :)

  10. I've used my limited interwebs influence to spread the word what I could... btw, tough choice! I'm a big vampirebook person, and have been meaning to bite into Harris for a while (to go with my H-author collection - Harrison, Hamilton...), but then your review of Caine's Weather Wardens series made it sound really cool, and a bit outside my usual scope... I was literally torn. Good luck building your following!!

  11. Great contest :o) I love the Weather Warden series & have the first few Sookie books but haven't read them yet. I've been wanting to buy the Morganville series for ages though so would be fab to win!

  12. Ooh great contest! I love Rachel Caine and Charlaine Harris.

  13. @Tj and Erika

    Thanks for entering! The WW series is amazing. I am allllmost done reading it. The Morganville series is amazing. I just love Caine's writing. The SS series is another love of mine. Hence the choice for the contest! :P Good luck!

  14. Cool contest! Thanks for telling me :) And congrats on over 50 followers now!

  15. I forgot to put my twitter address on the form when I filled it out! I'm "pastorbear" there, and I told about the contest. This looks fun~

    I've read several books of Charlaine's and love her harper connelly and lily bard series so much, but she has stopped writing both of them :( Gonna try the other one... I hope!
