Okay, so every day this week I will be giving away a book that I've read and enjoyed. That's part 1 of the "release month" party that will happen on the blog. Each contest will run for one week, so comment all week to be entered and then I'll announce winners exactly a week later. First up is a signed copy of Linda Gerber's Death by Bikini, which has great action and more than a little romance (and holes in the cover! Woohoo!). When mysterious guests start arriving at the island resort where Aphra lives with her dad, she gets suspicious and wonders if the sketchy visitors have anything to do with her mom, who left their family a few years ago. And when a long-time guest ends up dead on the beach (strangled by bikini strings!), Aphra has some detective work to do--and fast. Doesn't it just scream summer fun? YES. So to win Death by Bikini, just comment below and tell me what your plans are for the (sniff) last month of summer! Oh, and visit Linda's blog, where she's giving away some awesome prizes this week. PS-Next week, I'll start giving away goodies from the Book Party Gift bag, which includes fun fashion and beauty treats--one each day, all month long! PPS-The grand prize will be a full trio of signed Violet books and a full book party gift bag from the Violet in Private party in NYC! How to win that? Official details up next week, but here's a hint: you have to make a tribute to Violet somehow. Ideas: make a flipbook on flip.com, create a poem, write a missing scene from Violet's life, post a virtual Violet collage, film a vlog or video trailer for the books. Just to give you a head start. End date will be 9/1.
