I’m not going to start this blog post by apologizing for my recent absence because it seems like I do that all the time now. But if you follow me on FB or Twitter, you know that I’m absent less there because it’s much easier to post a quick update or a mini-quote in those forums.
That said, guess what today is! Today is the official release day of the Soul Screamers omnibus, Volume One, which includes the prequel novella and the first two novels in the series! I know, I almost forgot too. In a way, this doesn’t feel like a “real” release for me, because the stories in this volume were all originally released two years ago.
But on the other hand, this is the first and only way to get “My Soul To Lose,” the prequel novella, in print, so that’s actually almost as exciting for me as a new release.
So, let’s give stuff away! On my discussion group, I’ll be giving away two copies of the Soul Screamers omnibus. You must be a member to enter, and entering is as easy as answering the entry question. (Look for that giveaway later this afternoon.)
But here, I want to do something different.
Up for grabs here on my blog: two sets of Soul Screamers books 3-5, signed. (That’s My Soul To Keep, My Soul To Steal, and If I Die.)
How to enter: Send me (contestsATrachelvincentDOTcom) a picture of your copy of the Soul Screamers omnibus, taken somewhere other than the store. On a park bench. With your cat. In your little brother’s crib. Whatever. I’m just looking for proof that you actually have one, because this giveaway is intended to complete your set of Soul Screamers novels. Let me know in your email whether or not you’re okay with me posting your picture, because I may decide to post them. Electronic copies are fine. Just show the cover of the book on your kindle, nook, or whatever.
On December 5, I’ll draw two winners at random from the entries and those winners will receive signed copies of the 3rd, 4th, & 5th volumes in the Soul Screamers series. International entries are fine, but please note that Volume One is only out in the US/Canada at this time, so it may be difficult to find overseas. But The Book Depository does have copies and they will ship worldwide (to most countries) for free.
On another note, my Thanksgiving holiday is shaping up to be just as busy as I expected. I’ll be turning in the Shadow Bound page proofs this afternoon (one day earlier than they’re due, but two days later than I’d hoped). I’m also expecting a brief second round of notes on Before I Wake so ARCs can be printed. And, I’m beta reading a friend’s upcoming release and baking! I am baking! So far I’ve done mini-cheesecakes, caramel-apple muffins, and bacon-cheese biscuits, all from scratch, and there’s lots more to come. I love baking season.
