The Tenth Plague GIVEAWAY!

Last  week, I posted an interview with author Adam Blumer, upon release of his newest book, The Tenth Plague, and over the weekend he contacted me to let me know that I could do a giveaway!  I'm so excited!

3rd Grade Me
I don't know how many of you are into reading novels - but I will tell you - I LOVE reading!  As a kid, I could easily devour a 200 page book in a summer day - or maybe even two!  I sat on my bed in my room for hours on end, reading and imagining.  We did not have a television, so books were friends most dearly treasured.  One summer I read nearly all of the Newberry Award Winner books as part of a deal my dad made with me - I had to read one Newberry book for every non-Newberry Book I read.  I think he was trying to thwart my interest in the Babysitter's Club books, ha ha!  It worked - I found several favorites and saved up my money to buy my own copies! Of course, I did find a loophole - I think I read "Island of the Blue Dolphins" about 8 times that summer as dad had forgotten to specify that they had to be DIFFERENT Newberrys! (the photo to the left is of me just as I was falling in love with reading)

My love of reading never waned - but the time allotted for reading certainly DID! I know that before I got my Kindle and really made a concerted effort to do more reading, it had been since before I had kids that I had sat down to read.  When I did get my Kindle, I immediately tried to find some free books to upload and read.  I found a Christian Suspense novel, and while I hadn't ever read a suspense novel before, I decided to give it a try.  My page swipes became fast and furious as I tried to make my eyes read the words faster - a new genre was open.  And I was hooked.

Adam is giving away an e-copy of his newest book, and it is compatible with either Kindle or Nook, or any device that has an app for those devices. That would include iPads, tablets, iPhones, smartphones, etc. And if you don't have any of those, you can also read the book on your computer!

For one entry, comment on this post to let me know what your favorite fictional genre is.  For additional entries, "Like" Adam's author page on Facebook, tweet or facebook this giveaway, and for 5 additional entries, buy his first book, Fatal Illusions, which I just got done re-reading (it's FANTASTIC).  Then leave a comment letting me know which items you have done!

Anyone, anywhere can enter this giveaway!  Just be sure that you enter by Thursday, February 7th.  I'll announce the winner on Friday!

Do we need to leave separate comments for everything?

My favorite fictional genre is historical fiction (although I love suspense).

I like Adam's author page

I facebooked the giveaway

Does it count if I already own his first book Fatal Illusions?

Tracy, your comment is fine and YES it counts if you already bought Fatal Illusions!

My favorite fictional genre is historical, or Amish, but I've been getting into mysteries or suspense a little:).

I'm not sure if I have a favorite fiction genre . . . suspense is high on the list, but I also like historical fiction a lot, as well as some contemporary! I'm basically just a total bookworm and read a bit of everything. :) I have not yet read Fatal Illusions (but I really want to) and would love to win this book!!

I shared this giveaway on FB, and I also liked Adam's FB page. Thanks for the chance to win! :)

Hi Jenny,
I'm not sure what my favorite fictional genre is, but I have enjoyed reading Jeanette Oke's novels and historical fictional novels.

I "liked" Adam Blumer's blog.

It would be interesting to read - well - just about anything. Reading seems to have gone by the way for me.

Love, Mom Muth

I also love to read! Not sure if I have a favorite genre, but some of my favorite authors currently are Colleen Coble, Tracie Peterson, Karen Kingsbury, and maybe a little Ted Dekker. Free Kindle books are the best! :)

My fave is historical fiction. I have always loved to read and grew up with Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys. Thanks for posting this link and giveaway!

I haven't bought his book Fatal Illusions yet (didn't know about it until I read your blog). I would love to buy it, just have to see if I can budget it in right now. (this is Tricia, not Daniel)

I love a good fiction novel:)

Tim and Richelle said...

i'd love to "win" another book by him. thoroughly enjoyed fatal illusions. ;-)

have liked his fb page as well, and am sharing on my fb page.

as far as my favorite genre? do i have to pick a fave? i LOVE to read - just about any and everything. lately, i've enjoyed some great biographical fiction as well as books in the youth genre. you should give "unwind" a try some time! it is a thought provoker... check out my review of it on our blog.

Tami Perry said...

My favorite is mystery/suspense. I have been looking for something new for my Kindle for a trip in April - these sound perfect.

Curt and Sarah said...

I like mysteries and fantasy (the Tolkein/Lewis kind), some sci-fi, lots of classics. Picking a favorite is tricky. Hmm. I'll go with mystery at the moment but reserve the right to have a different fave tomorrow. :) Thanks for hosting the giveaway!
