First contest!

Okay guys, I am having a contest! My first one ever, so I'm really excited.

The prize is:

A signed copy of The Man in the Moon by Tom Tancin
You can find a summary here!


A signed copy of Watched by Tom Tancin
You can find a summary and my review here!

1) How to enter?

Leave a comment with:
*Your name/alias
*An email to contact you
*And your vote on which book you'd like to be next in the Detective Lindsey Scott Thrillstery Series. (I'll give your votes to Mr. Tancin and he'll put your answers into his poll on his MySpace blog.)

(All of this will give you (3) entries to start out with!)

Lindsey Scott is the 'solver of the unsolvable'. She is dedicated to bringing justice to those who murder. Even her family is second to the serial killers. But she wasn't always that way. In 2001 Lindsey came face to face with a killer who took the world from her. A killer who defined her. Her niece's murder changed her life and career forever. The loss of her niece would break her family but it would help create one of the best detectives the country has ever seen. Tom Tancin brings you his coldest thrillstery yet and gives you the chance to see how Lindsey Scott became the woman we all love, or love to hate. Be careful who you sleep with or you might end up in a "Frozen Slumber".


The Vice President and the Speaker of the House are opposites on the political spectrum. In fact, their rivalry outshines the President. The problem is, their teenagers are secretively dating. At least it's a secret until Chase Civet (son of the VP) and Taylor Andrews (daughter of the Speaker of the House) are kidnapped on the 4th of July. The political rivals find themselves negotiating with a criminal organization. Add in a high class murder, an elite political group, and the 'solver of the unsolvable' and it's a "Cat's Meow".

(Note: Mr. Tancin says that these summaries and book covers are not official and are subject to change!)

2.) How to gain extra entries?

*Gain (1) entry by leaving a comment on my review of Watched. (You can leave as many comments as you like, but only counts as (1) entry.)
*Gain (1) entry by leaving a comment on Mr. Tancin's book trailer of Watched on Youtube! (Note: Be sure to leave your name/alias on the comment and leave a comment on this post telling me you did so.)
*Gain (1) entry by posting about this contest on your blog/website. (Don't forget to leave the link to it on the comment.)
*Gain (1) entry for telling me who you learned about the contest from, giving them (2) entries.

That's a total of (10) possible entries!

3.) How will I pick the winner?

However many entries you have, will determine how many slips of paper will have your name on it. I'll put the slips of paper with your name on it in a hat and get someone to blindly grab a slip from the hat. The slip of paper that is grabbed will be the winner of the contest. I'll email the winner AND post who the winner is on my blog. I'll give the name and info of the winner to Mr. Tancin so he can send out the books.

4.) When will the contest end?

The contest will end on February 20th, 2009 at midnight on Eastern time.
I'll announce the winner either later that day or during the weekend!

Have fun and good luck to everyone!

The cover of Frozen Slumber is better, but I pick Cat's Meow because it sounds more interesting.
