Summer Reads Giveaway Hop

Hey, minions! Fresh off the Freedom to Read Giveaway Hop, I'm participating in another hop; the Summer Reads Giveaway Hop hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and co-hosted by one of my favorite book blogs...Rex Robot Reviews. Woot! Go Julia! Seriously, minions...RR is one the bomb! If you haven't had a chance to check out or follow her blog, please do!

That said, there are over 200 blogs participating so it should be intense with literally hundreds of free book sh** up for grabs. The giveaway runs from July 6th to July 11th (end of day) so you'll have plenty of time to enter. (I'm #69!)  Anyway, this past week, my FREE Sh** Fairy worked tirelessly to find a killer giveaway for you guys. And boy did she pull through!

Award-winning national newspaper reporter and young adult novelist, Wynne Channing recently launched her debut novel, What Kills Me. Check out the synopsis below:

An ancient prophecy warns of a girl destined to cause the extinction of the vampire race. So when 17-year-old Axelia falls into a sacred well filled with blood and emerges a vampire, the immortal empire believes she is this legendary destroyer. Hunted by soldiers and mercenaries, Axelia and her reluctant ally, the vampire bladesmith Lucas, must battle to survive. How will she convince the empire that she is just an innocent teenager-turned bloodsucker and not a creature of destruction? And if she cannot, can a vampire who is afraid of bugs summon the courage to fight a nation of immortals?
What's so cool about this book is it is the complete package. The cover rocks and so does the novel. For an excerpt read the first FOUR chapters via Channing's website here. Stay tuned as I review What Kills Me in the coming days.

And to keep things interesting Wynne has graciously offered five copies of her ebook for this giveaway!  That's five winners, minions!  I know. I know. Charge up your e-readers, book addicts.  I think you'll need it for this one. Okay, let's review the giveaway, shall we? Five (5) lucky winners can win an e-copy of Wynne Channing's debut YA urban fantasy novel, What Kills Me. Want to know how to enter? See below and tell your friends!

Extinction of the vampire race? I didn't think it was (fictionally) possible. What an interesting premise. Thanks for telling me about this book.

Happy birthday, Fred.
