Book giveaway!

In December I read Cracked by Eliza Crewe. And I was happy because it was awesome. It is about a very snarky girl named Meda who eats people.

"Well, technically, she eats their soul. But she totally promises to only go for people who deserve it. She’s special. It’s not her fault she enjoys it." --blurb

Meda is a very fun heroine who is having a gleeful time eating murderers to survive until she runs into three people like her. Who don't seem to like her very much. Fortunately she is rescued by Crusaders (yes, as in idealistic paladinlike Templars-in-hiding –— on motorcycles) who figure that since she is being attacked by three demons, she must be predestined to become a great power for good. Meda's trying to hide her actual source of sustenance while playing for any opportunity to find out how a girl with a dead human mother ended up needing demon-food (read: YOUR SOUL) to survive.

And now you too read this book, because it's free!

Well, if you win.

When I wrote the author to squee at her, she kindly hooked me up with a publisher publicity person, and they said if I posted the cover for book two, Crushed, which is coming out in August 2014 (art below, created by Dominic Harman), then I could run a book giveaway for others and get myself a chance to read the sequel early. More squee! :D

So how do you get a free book?

Just comment on this entry (or on its crosspost sister in fantasyreaders) and say you want to enter the book giveaway. I will put each username on a sheet of paper and use a random number generator (or possibly a couple of dice, because Crusaders believe deeply in their pair-o'-dice) to pick one username who gets the book - in either ebook or pbook (printed, physical) format, winner's choice.

(I will only list each username once, so you can't increase your chance of winning by commenting in both places, sorry.)

As someone once said, may the odds be ever in your favor.

I can afford the entry fee, so, sure, toss my name into the hat.

I'll give it a go.

Oh, this sounds wonderful. I'm in!

It was one of my favourite books of 2013.

Just checking, you know the giveaway book is Cracked, right? The cover reveal is for Crushed, but the publishers are giving away book 1 to encourage more people to start on the series. It's also quite possible you want your own copy of book 1, having originally read someone else's.

It is! :)

If people outside of the US can participate, then sign me up, for sure (Sweden here, hello ^^). Sounds like a fun book, definitely something I'd like. But if I can't enter, it's okay. I'll just see if there's a library somewhere that can lend it to me. Thanks for the rec, either way :D

Hm, I'll ask the publicity person and get back to you. You can probably get an ebook just fine though. Were you looking for an ebook or a physical copy if you win?

Chiana seems like an appropriate icon for this novel. :)

Thank you, but don't feel like you have to do that. Libraries are a-okay too ^^ But to answer your question, I /was/ thinking about the physical copy, as I only have the laptop to read e-books on and I've only read an e-book once before. I don't even know if I could download the ebook, if that'd work or what. I'm so not good with computer stuff XD So, you know, if I can't enter for the physical copy, I won't at all. Higher chances for someone else to get it then :)

I suppose it is XD Didn't even think of that. Then again, can't really go wrong with a Chiana icon <3 :D
