Father's Day Giveaway - St.Martins

********** STICKY POST. SCROLL DOWN FOR NEWER POSTS **********

Photobucket

With Father's Day just around the corner, here are some *macho* book giveaways for our male readers! (you can always sneak away the book later, ladies :)

Are you ready?! Here goes...

St.Martins Minotaur has generously donated 3 stellar books to A Book Blogger's Diary for this giveaway!

Don't Tell a Soul by David Rosenfelt
"Can you keep a secret? A really big one?" On New Years Eve, a stranger confesses to killing a girl and then walks away, saying “it’s your problem now.”

In the Heat by Ian Vasquez
Boxer Miles Young thinks he’s got one more shot in him before it’s time to hang up the gloves for good. He may be the only one who thinks so.

Severance Package by Duane Swierczynski
Some days, you could just kill your boss. Guess what? The feeling is mutual in the new thriller by the acclaimed author of The Wheelman and The Blonde.

There will be 3 winners, one book per winner, luck of the draw as per Random.org
Ends 5 am CST, June 30. US only - sorry, others.
Bloggers and Non-Bloggers (those without a blog) can both enter.
Non-Bloggers can easily comment using the Anonymous feature. But please leave your name and email in the comment. I can't contact you otherwise.

** Edited to Add **

Some common rules for all my giveaways :

Keep in mind the sponsor does the actual mailing of the prizes, not me.
Neither I nor the sponsor is responsible for lost / damaged copies.
Please give 6 to 8 weeks for your prize books to arrive.
And if you have any questions / queries, feel free to email me.

To enter :

- Visit St.Martins Minotaur and browse their vast selection of books. Then come back here and leave a comment mentioning one book you'd like to read - something other than the prize books.

- Comment as many times as you like. But you can only comment again AFTER at least one other person has commented. (So, keep checking back. The more you comment, the more your chances of winning)

- Mention only one book per comment. Please try and not repeat titles already mentioned by others (ctrl+F the title and you'll see if it's in the comments or not). If it still happens, the duplicate mention will not be counted in the final tally.

- DON'T FORGET TO LEAVE YOUR EMAIL ADDY WITH at least one of your comments.

It's not necessary, but I'd highly appreciate it if entrants spread the word about this giveaway either by blogging it or emailing other bookworms about it. I'll send a lot of virtual blessings your way, if you do :)

Good luck!
