I'm taking a page from Lori and would like to give out free .pdf files of my upcoming release, Renfred's Masquerade, to anyone who'd like to help me with pre-release or new release buzz. The book will be coming out on Nov. 23 for the e-book and Nov. 27 for the print book.

I'd appreciate honest reviews of the novel when you're done reading it. :)

Here's the book blurb and sample scene over at the publisher's site. I'd like to limit the giveaways to three people, and if more than three respond to this post, I'll do a lottery. :)

Thanks in advance!

P.S. I ended up giving away five copies for reasons noted on my response to Sammy's comment. Thanks, everyone, for your help!

Kitty (kittyorell) You're just giving away ebook copies of the book? Are they for people to review or....?

It's for people to read and review here at Goodreads.

Thanks, John!

Hey there! As it happens, my usual review sites are no longer taking on submissions (at least indefinitely), so I'll have to depend on Goodreads for word-of-mouth buzz. I don't mind extending this to five giveaways total, and yours makes number four. :)

Drop me a message: haydenthorne @ gmail.com and I'll send you the file.

I do, yeah. I also signed on to Patricia's guest blog thing. :) I'll be sending her my post soon and time it with the release of the book (or around that time, anyway).

Byron (byft) | 1060 comments hahaha that was the one I initially thought of.. then I remembered that there were a few mentioned in the 'other' group.. *LOL*

Hee! I've got one more guest blog to do, but that won't happen till January, so I've got time to figure out what to say. :D

Yeah, it's a bummer that a couple of my usual go-to review places placed a moratorium on submissions, but at least I've got this place plus a few other review sites that agreed to take on my book. I'll be fine with what I have.

Yay, I'm glad you enjoyed the series! :) I've got one more .pdf file to send out, so if you could email me at haydenthorne@gmail.com, I'll forward you the file.
