Blogtoberfest 2010 and a BIG October Romance Giveaway

Check out the BIG October Paranormal Romance Giveaway
and join in the fun of Blogtoberfest 2010!

For those who aren't familiar with it, Blogtoberfest 2010 is a fun blog challenge in which
bloggers commit to writing at least one post per day for the month of October.  The first Blogtoberfest 2010 was started by  tinniegirl and CurlyPops in 2008 in order to get bloggers to blog regularly and discover new-to-them blogs.  Giveaways are a fun way to encourage everyone to visit each other during the month. 

I participated last year with my other blog, MoonCat Farms.  It was a lot of fun and I was thrilled to actually complete it!  I also discovered several new blogs and won a prize or two ~ have I ever mentioned how much I love to enter giveaways?
It's not too late if you want to join in on the fun, just click on the Blogtoberfest button and start blogging!

Now on to the fantabulous giveaway.  This is a lovely Halloweenish treat of 4 paranormal romance books from Forever Romance/Hachette Books.  My lovely sponsors are offering this prize package to not 1, but 3 winners!  Yes, THREE lucky winners will each win one of these awesome prize packages.

The books included in this gargantuan giveaway include:

Pleasure Unbound (Demonica, Book 1) by Larissa Ione
Sins of the Flesh by Caridad Pineiro
My Wicked Enemy by Carolyn Jewel
Marked by Passion (The Guardians of Destiny) by Kate Perry

The contest will remain open until midnight on Halloween, October 31st.  The three winners will be notified and have 48 hours to respond with their mailing addresses, NO PO BOXES.

Sorry, but this contest is only open to One Book Shy FOLLOWERS who are US and Canadian residents as the books will be shipped from the publisher.  One prize package per household.  (Don't fret my International friends, I will be having another giveaway or two during Blogtoberfest that will include you as well!)

    My favourite halloween costume was a cute pink fairy outfit I had one year. It had gorgeous sparkly wings and small flowers sewn throughout the outfit.

    This year I've been eying those long Renaissance style dresses, but I might have to wait until next year for that one.

    Thanks for the giveaways!
