WHOO HOO!

War for the Oaks by Emma Bull
I won I won I won!!

Freaking A! Shara got 43 entries and used a randomizer website to pick two winners and joy of joys - one was mine! While I admit I've already read this book, I thought it would be oodles of fun to read again - especially now that it's got an updated cover. You know what this book kind of reminds me of? A little bit of fairy-tale goodness and Labyrinth all rolled up into a sheet of rockin' 80s music. Haha. That and I adored the phouka. He gave me a bit of inspiration for my current WIP,in fact. *yay!*

Man. I seem to be winning mail roulette a lot lately. All I need now is to win "steady job" roulette and I'll be good as gold. Until then, it's back to freelancing!

Congrats on your win. War For the Oaks is a great book, even if you have already read it. :-)

I just stumbled onto your blog, but I do understand the elation of free books. I have two coming in the mail (One on history and one on 2012). Hope you keep winning!

If you aren't particularly picky about which books you win, librarything.com offered free drawing to win books from other users, authors, and publishers. Maybe a good way to promote your own work?
