My First Contest!

Dark Time I won an autographed copy of Dakota Bank's Dark Time from Patricia at Patricia's Vampire Notes, so decided to hold my very first contest for the copy I impatiently bought myself because I was convinced I wouldn't win.

Three hundred years ago, she sold her soul to a demon. Now she wants it back. For centuries, the woman calling herself Maliha Crayne has lived a second life—as an assassin for the malevolent creature who owns her soul. A haunted killer with the blood of countless victims on her hands, she has finally discovered a way to nullify the demonic pact that chains her: If she saves a life for every one she has taken, she will be free. But if she fails, her punishments will be unspeakable, unendurable . . . and neverending.
All it takes to enter is to leave a comment on this post. Any comment will do. Say hello, discuss the weather, tell me about a great book you just read, I'm not picky....All I ask is that you please include your name and email address.

Winners must have a U.S. mailing address. Sorry, but I can't afford international postage.

For extra entries: tweet, blog, or otherwise promote this giveaway and leave me a link (include my handle @Alexia561 somewhere in your tweet or leave the link)

The contest ends at 11:59 pm EST on Wednesday, September 30, 2009.
Please make sure to include links for any tweets or blog posts!

Thanks, and good luck!
