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!

DC - High five for winning books!

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