HBT - Win the "Wicked" series, signed!


It's time for another spectacular spooky contest in honor of my Haunted Blog Tour! Author, Nancy Holder, has generously offered a set of her Wicked series, which she wrote with Debbie Viguie, for one lucky winner! Oh and also - all three of the books are signed. :]

Description of the Wicked series:
Holly Cathers's world shatters when her parents are killed in a terrible accident. Wrenched from her home in San Francisco, she is sent to Seattle to live with her relatives, Aunt Marie-Claire and her twin cousins, Amanda and Nicole. In her new home, Holly's sorrow and grief soon give way to bewilderment at the strange incidents going on around her. Such as how any wish she whispers to her cat seems to come true. Or the way a friend is injured after a freak attack from a vicious falcon. And there's the undeniable, magnetic attraction to a boy Holly barely knows. Holly, Amanda, and Nicole are about to be launced into a dark legacy of witches, secrets, and alliances, where ancient magics yield dangerous results. The girls will assume their roles in an intergenerational feud beyond their wildest imaginations...and in doing so, will attempt to fulfill their shared destiny.

Does this series sound great or what?! I just got my own set, too, so be on the lookout for their reviews.

  25. I really am loosing it lately, I just realized that I haven't commented on any blog in quite some time! Yikes, sorry!

    Uh, I'm going to be a mom? A candy-passer-outer? Sadly I tend to get sick very easily, and ALWAYS on a holiday so there haven't been many costumes in my past (we also weren't allowed to go after 12, or was it once we hit twelve?). My mom dressed me up as a rag doll when I was a baby!

    Sounds like an interesting read, I love your contests!


  26. Oh, ugh, and after the fourth time I tried to comment I forgot to add:
