November Giveaway Hop!

First let me thank I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and Tristi Pinkston for hosting this hop!
OMG! I actually am gonna do this!!! Okay, I gotta calm down. So I have decided to hold  my first giveaway. Here are the rules:
Become a GFC Follower of this blog and leave a comment with your GFC name and email address and which book you would prefer if you win. That is all. No extra entries. Just that.   I've found that when I've entered other contests on other hops I always appreciated  when the entries where simple.  That and since this is my first time, I need to make it as simple for me as possible too. So simply click the button to follow this blog and leave the comment with your info before November 11th at midnight and you'll be entered to win!
Then you can click on the list at the bottom of this post to go to the next blog on the list and get on with entering other contests.
Now for the good part what you can win!  I have two prizes up for grabs, that means TWO winner's!!

The amazing author Maureen O. Betita has been kind enough to offer an e-copy of her book The Kraken's Mirror for giveaway! It is the first book in The Kraken's Caribbean Series.

Summary from Amazon:
Captain Alan Silvestri is a man haunted by a strange curse. Good luck is his to command, but it comes at the cost of any place to call home or people to reckon as family. Resigned to die and shunned by all, he is forced to sail every three days, until he begins to dream of a special woman.

Treated by our youth-oriented society as invisible and sexless, Emily Pawes is ready to move on with life. She attends a pirate festival, hoping to recapture the make-believe magic she knew as a young woman. Lucky to win an interesting bit of booty at a brick-a-brac stand, she finds herself transported by the Kraken’s mirror through a magical portal to a land of Hollywood piratitude, where swashbuckling heroes own iPods. With little choice, Emily embraces the madness. Playing pirate has to be safer than falling into the arms of handsome Captain Silvestri, right?

When they meet, sparks fly, passion flares. He needs her to be free, but more than that, he needs her to be whole. Setting sail and uncertain of who actually controls the wheel, they seek ways to defeat his curse of good luck and discover the Kraken’s mirror has plans for them. Will Emily stay in this pirate haven to fight alongside him or will he lose her because of his curse?

Book two, The Chameleon Goggles, just came out. So enter for  a chance to win The Kraken's Mirror and dive into this awesome new series!

Want to find out more about The Kraken's Mirror? Check out an excerpt from the book or my review here at Vvb32Reads.  Also feel free to get to know her better, check out her interview.


You could also win  What Not to Fear from the Artifice series by another amazing author Robert C. Roman.

Summery from Amazon:
Michaela Miles is Philly’s best detective. Sometimes her methods are medieval, but that's not surprising. Michaela has been fighting evil for nearly four hundred years.

George Matthew Franklin, Matt to his friends, is on the cutting edge of forensic science. He has been paired up with the city's best detective to prove what the new techniques can do. There's only one problem: he won't find much evidence if he can't take his eyes off his new partner.

Michaela and Matt make enemies, because Bad Guys don’t like detectives or investigators. Demons and Fae, Vampires and Thugs, none of them can get away with misbehaving when these two are on the case. When they all join forces to take vengeance, everyone involved will learn that there are always worse things to fear.

Want to find out more about What Not to Fear?  Check out the review here at Hampton Reviews or go read the excerpt here!
Get to know Robert at his interview here! Also don't forget to check out Robert's blog, he is holding a contest for some sweet swag from his appearance at  Authors After Dark! There's still prizes left so hurry!

Thanks for stopping by! Winner will be announced after the 11th. (hopefully the 12th.) I will be using Random.org to pick the winner!

Also don't forget to check back throughout the month as I will be Spotlighting both these authors!

Now just hop to the next blog!
