The Taken Trilogy is out in paperback!

How did that happen? It feels like just a year ago that the idea for the Taken series fell into my lap, but that was actually way back in 2009. Time flies.

To celebrate, and to thank all you hard-working book bloggers/reviewers, I’m hosting a giveaway. Here’s what’s up for grabs:

» One (1) winner will receive a signed copy of the complete Taken trilogy (in paperback), plus a copy of Stolen (the companion e-novella)
» Three (3) winners will receive an e-copy of Stolen!

Entering is easy: All you have to do is post a review for one of my books on a retail site—Amazon, B&N, BAM, any online store where you can submit a review on the book detail page. You can review any book/novella I’ve written, from Taken to Vengeance Road. Each posted review gains you one (1) entry, but the review must be one of substance. This does not mean that it has to be long, just that “I like/hate this book” won’t qualify. Shoot for a few sentences and please explain why you liked or didn’t like the book. If you’ve already posted a review on goodreads or another bookish community, feel free to copy/paste it to a retail site. Reviews you posted to a retail site days/weeks/months/years ago can also be submitted!

I won’t be reading these reviews (just checking that they’re posted if your name is drawn as the winner), so please be honest when sharing your thoughts. Reviews—both positive and negative—help readers discover new books and make informed buying decisions. They also help out an author, too. (Trust me, those algorithms take note of all sorts of things when recommending novels to readers, and ‘number of reviews’ is one of them!)

After you’ve posted your review(s), paste a link to each one in the comments below to officially enter the giveaway. Comments will be accepted until 11:59 PM (ET) on April 16th, 2016. I’ll randomly draw winners and announce them the following Monday. This is open internationally.

Hooray for the trilogy being out in paperback!
Hooray for book reviewers!
Hooray, hooray, hooray!
