A special thanks to Anne Soward of Ace/Roc and Cindy Hwang from Berkley/Jove for their generous donations.   If you want to check out the books that are upcoming from these publishers check out the threads: Ace/Roc and Berkley/Jove.   The great thing is that we will be doing this again in August or so and we will be giving ARCs like Hunting Ground by Patricia Briggs and To Hell with the Hellhouds by Charlaine Harris, Ilona Andrews, Meljean Brook and Nalini Singh.

    Wow… thank you very much indeed, Dear Author ladies and Berkely – Jove – Ace – Roc.

    This is my year for receiving free books for some reason. In January I got selected on the dawbooks livejournal community and then Elizabeth Wein picked me for a free book because of some pr suggestions I made on her lj. Considering that this is also the year with my worst eye problems I can only hope it’s a sign that things will get easier there.

    Are there any special proceedings to follow for claiming the books?

    Thanks for highlighting all the new (and old!) urban fantasy/romance series, Dear Author. I’ll be sure to check out them out this summer.

    Thanks for doing the giveaway. :)

    P.S. Should I email you, Jane? The email I use to leave comment is not active so you can’t reach me via that particular email address. Thanks.

    @Nadia Yes, please do email me. I got a mail return message yesterday.

    This was a great contest — even those of us who didn’t win books get the prize of knowing about some interesting upcoming releases. It was great to have a big list like that all in one place, plus a reason to look through them and think “which ones do I want?” I know that I will recognize these covers in the store and buy some of them.

    It was a thrill of a contest. Thanks to you, Berkley Jove, and Ace/Tor. Congratulations to all of the other winners.

    Am assuming that I need to email you.

    That should have been Ace/Roc. My fingers were moving faster than my brain, as you can see from the time it took for the latter to catch up.

    I can’t belive I won, either! Thanks Dear Author, Berkely Jove, and Ace/Roc! So exciting!

    Oh wow!! Thank you so much… I never win when I enter contests! Thanks to everyone! I’ve had such a bad week and it feels good to end it this way! :)
