12 Days of Review Requests - Day Eleven

It's Thursday again! Just today and tomorrow left, then we'll find out who won that Kindle, and we'll have the final list of review books from me. Welcome back to the 12 Days of Review Requests event! If you missed the opening post, be SURE and check it out here. It has the Rafflecopter entry form for the Kindle HD6. Each day, I'll post links to all the books pitched the previous days and a short recap of what I'm looking for you to put in the comments. Then, I'll have the Rafflecopter winner from the previous day, and the entry form for the current one along with the prizes. Let's get going!

Books marked with an astrisks and in BOLD are winners.

PITCH your book in the comments. Put the LINK to your book in the Rafflecopter form. Tell me why you think I'll like it, why I should check it out, and a little about the story. DO NOT give me a synopsis. I can get that from Amazon. Make it personal or make it funny. I care not. I'll be grabbing a sample of every book pitched and go from there.

AUTHOR ONLY entries will be removed from Rafflecopter before a winner is chosen. If you want a shot at winning the prizes, put BOTH in the box asking how you're entering.

I strongly encourage you to check out the works of your fellow Indie authors. Chat in the comments, talk each other up, make friends!

Book reviewers! You're welcome to play along, too! Meet and greet authors. Get new books to read and review. It only works if we all work together.
If you haven't joined my 2015 Review Team, do that here

**Kindly remember, there's no guarantee your book will be reviewed by me. You will get a purchase if your sample interests me, and I'll try my best to read it. But if I find I can't give it more than 2 stars, I won't write the review. I've had a few I couldn't finish and it led to me not giving a review.**

Now it's time to announce the winners from yesterday's giveaway!

Hope you're all enjoying the book buffet! Happy pitching and reading!

Well, that's all for today, folks! Until next time, WRITE ON!



  1. My replies will be delayed. I'm knee-deep in samples! Gotta give every one of them a fair shot. Please be patient, and feel free to browse the list above after you pitch.

  2. Pitching my book, The Last Guardian Rises. You reviewed my first book, The Last Keeper's Daughter. It was the best review I've gotten. Not only did it describe and detail my book for potential readers, but it gave me key points to work on as an author. Oh...back to the pitching about The Last Guardian Rises - it's part mystery, part romance - in a realistic way--, and part paranormal. And Happy Holidays!!!

    1. *face/palm* Rebecca! EEP! I loved the first book. Gah! What a conundrum you've left me with now. LOL Thank you for your kind words about my first review. That makes me smile :) I look forward to the sample of The Last Guardian Rises. Welcome back!

  3. Ugh! I can't believe I'm this late to the party!! Well, I definitely have my work cut out for me. I plan on going through all the posts and hopefully expanding my to-read list. Finding Sir Edric's Temple by Thaddeus White through your 12 Days posts last year was a huge win, and I certainly hope to find a new author to stalk this coming year. I look forward to the reviews!

    1. I love that you and Thaddeus became such awesome friends through the event last year, L. K.! Authors meeting authors and expanding their friends list makes me smile :) It's soooo good to see you! When do I get a shot at the next Keepers novel? Hmmmmmm? Hmmmmm? I know it's written. LOL! Have fun with the samples. I am!

    2. I hope this comment doesn't post twice... Had some technical errors ;)

      Yes, I'm so happy I met Thaddeus as well. We are actually doing an anthology together. So excited!

      Keeper of Arden V2 is actually available for pre-order right now on Amazon, but the set release date is the 22nd. Hopefully next year you'll do this again and I can pitch it to you and actually participate from the beginning.

      I've already added a book from the pitches to my to-read list. Lots to choose from!

    3. EEK!!! That's awesome news :) I'm gonna grab it NOW. Loved the first one, I know the second one is just as amazing!

  4. So many books, so little time, Jo! Lol. Hope you get them all read! I'm still checking them out myself.

  5. Comments for today are now closed. There will be no more pitching of books, but if you'd like to share what you bought or plan to buy, feel free to pop over to day 12 here:

    REVIEW BLOGGERS: Be sure and leave us the name of your blog so we can find the reviews!
