Blog Party Giveaway!

It's finally time!  November is here, which means NaNo, Thanksgiving, an enormous amount of birthdays, and the birthday party for The Soldier's Cross and The Shadow Things.  We told you it was going to be big, and hopefully we won't disappoint.  We've got posts lined up for the whole month: everything from question-and-answer sessions to marketing tips to discussions on Historical Fiction, Christianity, and the whole shebang.

To kick off the month, Jenny and I are hosting a giveaway of two copies (each) of our novels.  (Because who doesn't love a free book?)  There will be two winners at the end of the month, which gives everyone a better chance at winning a copy, and each winner will receive one copy of The Soldier's Cross and one copy of The Shadow Things.  With Christmas just around the bend, you can get started on gathering presents early.  Or you could, you know, keep it for yourself.  That always works, too.

At any rate, here's the scoop on how to enter.  It's quite simple, really.

Give the party a shout-out on your blog, Facebook, or Twitter - the more participants the merrier!  Then let us know by leaving a comment on this post, and you'll be entered to win.

If you have already read either The Soldier's Cross or The Shadow Things, post your thoughts in an Amazon or Goodreads review.  Then leave a second comment with a link to the review, and you will earn a second entry.  Reviews not written in November cannot be entered.

And that's it!  Hurry and get your entries in; you will win brownie points, at the very least, and hopefully shiny copies of both novels as well.  The giveaway closes November 30, so in the midst of the mad scribbling some of you will be doing, don't forget to take advantage of this as well!


  1. Yay! I've posted a shout-out on my blog, Abigail, for the blog-party. Here it is:

    God bless!

  2. Hurrah for 'The Soldier's Cross' and 'The Shadow Things'! :) I posted a shout-out on my blog a little while back. Would that count for an entry or must it be written in November? Here is the link:

    Happy writing! :)

  3. I posted about the giveaway here: Thanks for the chance to win! :)

  4. That sounds cool! :) I see your up in nano words, ahead! You go girl!


  5. Here's my entry. Does it count if your review is on your blog?

  6. Posted on my FB page!
    Looking forward to the next book. . .

  7. Also Pinned on Pinterest - whether it counts or not. Happy Scribbling!

  8. Emily - I'll have to ask Jenny. It's probably fine, but we didn't discuss a policy on that!

    Writer - It's best if you can post your review on Amazon and/or Goodreads. Perhaps your parents would be willing to let you use their Amazon account, if they have one? It's free, too, which is nice.

  9. Abigail, are the prizes going to be in hard copy or ebook? I'd love a chance to read your books, but I think I've about hit my limit on how many physical books I can fit into my room without tripping people up! :)

  10. I tweeted about the giveaway here: The fact that I already own a copy of each book is entirely irrelevant. I'm storing up for Christmas presents. :)

  11. Elisabeth Grace - Alas, we only have physical books to give away at this time! We're hoping at a later date to be able to offer e-books, but for the moment it's just hard copies. Stay tuned, though: one of these days...!

  12. Hello! I'm a new follower. I've been following your sister's blog for a month or so but just came upon yours. I was delighted to find it. I tweeted about your giveaway

    And I plan to blog about it tomorrow.

  13. I blogged about it too.

  14. Tweeted about it!

  15. I tweeted about the giveaway here:

  16. Umm this is awkward... what is a party shout out on Facebook? Is it just posting a comment or do you actually find a way to put out an "event?"

  17. ^Sorry, my name's Ellana.

  18. Not awkward at all! You just need to post on Facebook with a link to either my blog or Jennifer Freitag's (The Penslayer) and a notice that the two of us are hosting a month-long blog party. Nothing technical involved!

  19. Thanks! I will go do that right away then... :)

    Have a wondeful Thanksgiving!


  20. Okay done! ~Ellana

  21. Ooops, I completely forgot to leave a comment! I gave the party a shout-out in this post:

  22. I posted on Facebook about your giveaway! :) I haven't read either book, so I can't review them. :(

  23. Having remembered to leave a comment on both blogs... :)

    It's been fun getting to learn more about you and your writing through the blog party! :D
