Pre-release contests for BLOOD MOON!

In celebration of Blood Moon's upcoming release, and it being the final book in the Silver Moon saga, I'm hosting two giveaways. Not just any giveaways, though. Keep reading to find out what prizes you can win.
 

First off, there will be three winners: one grand prize, one second place, and one third place.
 
Secondly, the main contest is open to residents of the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom only.

For those who are bummed I didn't open this contest internationally, don't worry! I've included a second drawing for international residents, who can receive e-books of Blood Moon from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or Smashwords. I'll randomly pick five winners for this contest.
 
Lastly, both contests end on Thursday, January 31, 2013 at 12:00 a.m. (EST).   
 
You have to fill out the Rafflecopter forms to enter. They're located at the bottom of this long post. I apologize in advance for how lengthy this post is, too. lol
 
All right. Now on to the good stuff.
 
What's up for grabs?
 
The grand prize package includes the following: 
  • 2 custom shirts (May's Ice Cream Shop + Livia's Corner Closet)
  • 1 silver heart locket with a clock inside (Candra's power, anyone?)
  • 1 set of werewolf earrings
  • 1 werewolf-scented soy candle
  • 1 werewolf-scented homemade soap
  • 1 werewolf-scented homemade lip balm
  • 1 e-book copy of Blood Moon
  • 1 swag pack filled with werewolf-themed goodies
 
The second place prize package includes the following: 
  • 1 custom shirt (either May's Ice Cream Shop or Livia's Corner Closet)
  • 1 silver heart locket with a clock inside
  • 1 werewolf-scented soy candle
  • 1 werewolf-scented homemade soap
  • 1 werewolf-scented homemade lip balm
  • 1 e-book copy of Blood Moon
  • 1 swag pack filled with werewolf-themed goodies 
 
The third place prize package includes the following: 
  • 1 custom shirt (either May's Ice Cream Shop or Livia's Corner Closet)
  • 1 silver heart locket with a clock inside
  • 1 werewolf-scented homemade soap
  • 1 werewolf-scented homemade lip balm
  • 1 e-book copy of Blood Moon
  • 1 swag pack filled with werewolf-themed goodies  
 
Here's the size chart for the shirts:
 

 
 
The first shirt up for grabs is "May's Ice Cream Shop." It reads: "May's Ice Cream Shop. The best ice cream in town!" The shirt is available in Army green, baby blue, black, brown, red, navy blue, and pink.
 
 
 
 
The second shirt up for grabs is "Livia's Corner Closet." It reads: "Livia's Corner Closet. Where fashion meets affordability." The shirt is available in baby blue, lime, pink, white, and yellow.
 
 
 
 
Please allow time for me to order the shirts, receive them, then package and send them on to you (whoever the winners may be). I'll ask you which color you prefer for what shirt, and what size, in the congratulatory email. :)
 
Other items up for grabs include a silver heart locket, werewolf earrings, werewolf soap (all-natural/homemade--not by me, though, lol), werewolf lip balm (all-natural/homemade), and werewolf candles (all-natural/homemade soy). I've smelled the soaps and candles, and they're amazing! It's like you lost yourself in the middle of a forest, completely enveloped by the spicy, herbaceous woodlands.
 
Here are pictures of the prizes (in no specific order):
 


 


 
 
All of these items were purchased through Etsy. 
 
Last, but not least, here's an extra surprise for Silver Moon fans:
 
Every time you guys get me to a certain level of reviews, I'll include a bonus scene written from Ben's point of view. I've written down how many ratings/reviews I have as of right now, so I'll be keeping up with any new reviews. You will be able to leave one review per day, per book; however, this is not mandatory. Your options include websites such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, Apple, Sony, Kobo, or Goodreads. I'd recommend leaving reviews on the website you purchased the books from and Goodreads, but this is totally up to you. If you've previously left a review on Alpha Moon, Silver Moon, or Black Moon, then feel free to use that to obtain 25 bonus points. 
 
I'm sure some of you are curious as to what scenes I'll include, so here's the list based on how many new reviews I receive overall:

10 new reviews: Prior to Ben seeing Candra for the first time, he gets to hear about her from his family. They knew the second she was in town. What are they so worried about?
 
15 new reviews: The classroom scene in which Candra is forced to sit next to Ben. Why wouldn't he look at her?
 
20 new reviews: Where was Ben at before he stopped Cameron and Ethan from taunting Candra after school, and what were his thoughts as he did stop them?

25 new reviews: After the fight with Cameron, Candra thinks she's losing her mind...until Ben arrives to tell her she's not as crazy as she thinks.
 
30 new reviews: Movie theater. $20. Guess what? You're marked, Candra. What led Ben to give her the money?
 
40 new reviews: What happened just before Candra/Daciana was kidnapped/rescued by Ben/Ulric and his family?
 
50 new reviews: What was going through Ben's head during the bathtub scene? (You guys haven't read this scene yet, but it's coming up in Blood Moon.)
 
If you guys get me over 50 new reviews, I'll probably pass out, to be honest. lol But if you do, I'll write extra scenes from Ben's perspective--they'll just have to remain a secret. You won't know until you finish the book. ;)
 
It's been a wild and crazy ride with this first series of mine, and we've had our ups and downs, but I'm very grateful for everyone who has taken time out of their busy lives to read any of these books. In a way, they're like children to me. Now we must part ways, but I'm glad for the time we had together. :')
 
Good luck to everyone who enters!

    3. I'd recommend any of the books written by Devon Ashley, Constance Sharper, or J.A. Redmerski. They're my partners-in-crime over at Dark Horse Indie Books, and they all write paranormal/fantasy/contemporary fiction. ;)
