GIVEAWAY | The Barrow AND Blood and Iron

Ah, my lovelies, I know what you are thinking: “Sarah, you just HAD a giveaway. What the hell is this all about? Are you hungry for attention or something?”

(Okay, maybe that’s not what you are thinking…)

Well, here’s the deal. I have a record number of giveaways coming through the website in the next few weeks, which I am truly enjoying. These are all giveaways for books I read and loved, and I think you should read them and love them, too. I enjoy sharing the book wealth. Hell, that’s what this website is all about: the love of reading, and getting YOU to love reading, too.

So, yeah. I’m doing another giveaway. The lovely people at Pyr just contacted me this morning and asked if I’d like to do a giveaway of these two books, and I jumped on it, and asked if I could open it right away. Why? Because I just reviewed Blood and Iron yesterday, so I think today is a good date to jump on that bandwagon. Plus, what’s better than winning one book? Winning two!

Here are the details:Β 

I am giving away a copy of Blood and Iron by Jon Sprunk AND The Barrow by Mark Smylie to one lucky winner.

This one lucky winner can live anywhere in the world. ANYWHERE. There areΒ No geographical restrictions.

To enter this epic giveaway, leave a comment under this post. You have one week to enter. I will get someone at my work to choose one lucky winner for me (which is just as good as having a random number pulled, because no one at my work has a clue what goes on on my website).

This means that the last day you can enter is Thursday, March 27th at 11:59 pm Mountain Time.Β 

I will let the winner know who they are and get their address on Friday, March 28th.

Good luck!!Β
