Two Books, Two Winners! Contest Alert!!!






It's been quite a while since I had a contest, hasn't it? Well, that's why I am here and posting on a Tuesday - to give y'all an opportunity to win books!!! How about two books? How about two winners? Sound good? I thought so!

So Random House Children's Books (a big huge publisher, if you didn't know) just recently announced two new paperback imprints - Bluefire and Ember. Bluefire is going to feature beloved fantasy novels, while Ember is going to present us with award winners and bestsellers. Click on the names of the imprints to go directly to their websites to learn more!

Imprints can help you to know whether or not you're gonna be interested in the title. For examply, some of the authors that will be featured under Bluefire are: Tamora Pierce, Isobelle Carmody, Esther Friesner, Eoin McNamee, Henry Neff, N.D. Wilson, and Janni Lee Simner.

While under Ember you're gonna see options like: The Alchemyst; Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret; The Chocolate War; Fallen; Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist; and The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.

Awesome right?! Right. So where does the winning books come in? Well, you get the opportunity to sample a little bit of both imprints! I will be giving away two prizes, each with two books, one from Ember and one from Bluefire, courtesy of Random House.

Prize One:

Torment - by Lauren Kate (Ember)
Thief Eyes - by Janni Lee Simner (Bluefire)

Prize Two:

The Necromancer: The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel - by Michael Scott (Ember)
The Ring of Five - by Eoin McNamee (Bluefire)

All you have to do to enter is comment on this post between today and midnight PST on Tuesday, July 5th with your email (to contact you if you win, so don't forget!) and the answer to this question: Which imprint (either Bluefire or Ember) do you think you'll be reading more often, and why?

I'd love for you to help spread the world as well! The more people who enter, the better!!!

I'll be selecting and notifying winners probably around July 14th.

Thanks for participating and happy reading!!!

Hmmm... Ember or Bluefire.
Which would I read most? Likely it would be Bluefire, as I do love my Fantasy.

I'll probably read more from Random Houses Bluefire imprint (I'm a huge fantasy book lover), but also read a lot from the Ember imprint as well.

Thanks for the really awesome giveaway (and the heads up on their new imprints). :)

Hello there! What a wonderful giveaway :) Um, I think I will be reading more from the Bluefire imprint because I really love fantasy books and Tamora Pierce as well as Janni Lee Simner are two of my favs right now. Thanks for the contest!

Bluefire, because I love Fantasy!

Shooting Stars Mag said...

I think I'd read Ember actually because even though they are bestsellers, they have more variety. I don't read a TON of fantasy anyway.

BrittanyGale said...

Is this US only? (I'm Canadian) I think I'd read Ember more because fantasy is not my most favourite genre. I mean, I still enjoy it and all though.

Hi Everybody!!! Thanks so much for entering! Make sure and let all your friends know, and keep the entries coming!

Now to BrittanyGale and all other potential Canadian entrants: I am asking Random House if they will ship to Canada or not. Unfortunately they're all at ALA right now, so I probably won't have an answer till Monday or Tuesday - but I will let you know! Until then, I consider you to be entered!

Thanks again everybody! :)

Thanks for this giveaway! I would love to win Prize 1! From their descriptions, I think I'll be reading books from Both Bluefire and Ember but maybe more from Ember because I usually read the bestsellers.

Hi everybody! Got word back from Random House regarding shipping to Canada - unfortunately, they are unable to do so. I'm sorry! But if you have a friend and family member in the US, we could ship it to them and they could, in turn, ship it to you.

And - Happy Birthday hotcha12! Hope it was a great one! :)

Hi Everybody! Happy Monday!

Okay, so this morning I randomly picked 2 winners and sent them out an email - so take a look at your email inboxes...

The 2 winners are.... (drumbeat please)...

Emily a.k.a. WillowRaven & Suz!!!

Let's all celebrate for these two! Now, I need to hear back from both of them in a week's time, or another winner will be selected - which hopefully won't happen!

I want to thank all of you so much for entering this contest and spreading the word! You are all awesome, and I hope all of you continue to follow the Bibliophile Support Group (or BSG) to read reviews and post your thoughts in the comments section - we bibliophiles need to stick together!

Thanks again - and lets all say a big YAY for Emily and Suz!!!
