Free Copy Of From The Ruins!

Everyone has their contests for free books and I've decided I don't want to be left out of the loop or seen as a stingy writer.

With that in mind, I'm starting a contest, which is really more along the lines of a raffle. Why? Because I'm pretty much drawing a name out of a hat. I'm going to put the names of those who leave a comment on my blog each week in June in a hat and draw a name.

This will reset each week and the winners will be announced on Sunday or Monday. UNLESS I get very few entries. Then I will be bunching all of the weeks together and announcing two winners for the month of June.

Your comments do not have to be anything specific or singing my praises (although, if you really wanna...) all you need to do is make sure I have your name and your email address to be included in the drawing.

One entry does not carry you through the entire month, just that week. (Again, unless the entries are few) I will try to think of awesome topics so when you come here, you have something to actually comment on! lol

As I am busy writing 4 novellas and editing my full length novel, my blog can feel a little empty. I'm sure it feels quite abandoned.

Hopefully this contest will inspire me to appear more.

All my best and good luck,
Allure Van Sanz

Hi G!

WOW! You sure are busy! When do you find time to breathe (or eat or sleep or have sex?) Ah -- the life of a writer -- have to strike while the iron is hot!

So, should I ask if you have other works on the horizon? Or will that get me shot?

Much luck with all your projects!

Hiya George,

I have tons of projects. A couple of submissions, hunting for an agent for the big projects, and finishing smaller ones to increase my presence.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hiya Nicole and Steph! Thanks for filling the bare space!

::grins:: You gals are the best.

I like your poll and was kinda surprised that there were more names for male gentilia that I hated than female...go figure! I do dislike reading flowery descriptions for either gender like "he positioned his love staff at the entrance to her womanly canal" lmao...and there is more of that out there than one might think! I have never known any real life people who have said, "I want your manly part in me" or "Oh, baby, I love the way your hot channel feels" it what it is people, we might not say cock or pussy in public, but we do in private and when I'm reading a novel I want it gritty, down and dirty, make me wet sex scenes. Oh yeah, you can throw in "I love you" now and again if you want, but for me, not a requirement.

And your blog is awesome, Allure!
Rie McGaha...fantasy that keeps you up

You busy bee you! Your book sounds wonderful and that poll surprised me to say the least. I guess it is truly hard to find a word all agree on when it comes to the human body.

Thanks for taking your time to run this contest!

Grats on the release of From The Ruins! It sounds really interesting! Definitely count me in for the contest! I am always looking for new authors!

Pat said...

How do you have time to do any things else in the day. lots of luck with your writing

Carol Jo Kachmar said...

Sorry I'm so late with this comment. Loads of luck with The Ruins. That excerpt really kicks up the tension.

The winner for this week is Jen! My five-year-old wanted to keep picking names out of the basket. Try explaining that you just need one to an enthusiastic daughter! Congrats Jen!

Instead of making everyone reenter every week, I'm just going to keep these names and if you all want to enter more than once, when you stop by each week I'll enter your name again increasing your chances.
