Amber Kallyn's Birthday Bash blog-hop contest

From author Amber Kallyn:

I love the holidays, but not necessarily having my birthday fall smack dab in the middle of them. But this year, I’d like to do something special for my readers. Over 25 authors and bloggers have come together to celebrate my 24th birthday (I won’t mention how many years I’ve turned 24 again).

We have some wonderful prizes, and all you have to do is leave a comment at the participating blogs to win. Easy.

Also, my novel Bloodstorm (Heart of a Vampire, Book 1) is free right now for an early present:

Grand prize 

One commenter will win their choice of a NOOK Simple Touch™ with GlowLight or a Kindle Paperwhite (up to $140 value).

Other prizes

Ebooks from the following authors:

  • Paloma Beck (Coming Home, contemporary romance)
  • Jami Grey (Shadow’s Edge and Shadow’s Soul, urban fantasy)
  • Zrinka Jelic (paranormal romance)
  • Christine Fairchild (An Eye For Danger, romantic suspense)
  • Marian Lanouette (If I Fail, mystery)
  • Sylvia Hubbard (five ebooks)
  • Kenra Daniels (Safe Heart and Kassern, paranormal romance)
A $40 Gift card to either Amazon or Barnes & Noble

Some of the other blogs taking part will have additional give-aways.

How to win

The contest is open from Wednesday, December 19, to Saturday, December 22. Hop to all the blogs. The winner will be chosen from among those who comment on participating blogs. Leave a comment at each blog for additional entries to win. The winner will be drawn on Sunday, December 23.
