Lisa Shafer's Blog: Keeping Just The Original Blog

November 25, 2015

Hi folks.
After 733 people signed up to win The (Dis)Appearance of Nerissa MacKay in my last Goodreads giveaway, I decided to have a few giveaways on my blog.
The first one has just started. You can win a library tote bag printed with vintage 50s Christmas graphic art and filled with bookish stuff: a paperback of (Dis)Appearance, a paperback of Popular by M. Van Wagenen, a mug (for sampling Auntie Jane's ginger-milk tea), a handmade bookmark with Colorado wildflowers, a Late Bloomer sticker (from Wings, by Pike), and two buttons -- one featuring the Half-Vampire blood splat from All in the Half-Vampire Family and the other featuring the gorgeous tree of life from the cover of Becoming Brigid.
There are a ton of ways to enter on my rafflecopter form, so head over to my real blog and enter! now!
Here's where you go to find this:

I'm giving away a signed copy of my new YA novella, The (Dis)Appearance of Nerissa MacKay. This is a tale of witchiness, invisibility, and humor. It's perfect for a light Halloween read; it's even set at a Haunted Zoo. :D

That's right, folks. All of my e-books are on sale for 99¢ each right now! For two of them, that's the lowest price ever!
This means that for less than the price of a fancy coffee, you can own THREE books!! And the books will last a lot longer than that cup of coffee will!

Do you prefer Samhuinn over Halloween? Do you like Celtic mythology? How about time travel? How about mysterious men who might be dangerous?
Then you need to spend 99¢ and buy a copy of Becoming Brigid:

Or maybe you like vampires? C'mon, who doesn't like vampires? They're fabulous!
How about a funny teenage half-vampire? How does that sound?
You need Confessions of an Average Half-Vampire:

And how about Scotland? Scotland is way up there on the list of exotic settings for books. So, what about a half-vampire in Scotland?
Then you need book two in the Half-Vampire series:
All in the Half-Vampire Family:

I spent a good hour this morning refining an essay post on my blog about how Flavia DeLuce of Alan Bradley's The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie series is an excellent role model for girls.

Amazon has decided (actually, without my consent or knowledge) to lower the price of the paperbacks of Confessions of an Average Half-Vampire

and All in the Half-Vampire Family.

I don't know how long the sale will last, but if you've been waiting to buy a copy, now would be a good time to stop waiting and start buying! :)
