Vivian Arend's Black Gold releases September 13th and to introduce the new Wolfies and let you all know they are connected to the Granite Lake books Vivian has set up a World Tour for her Wolfies. They are going from UK to Holland to Hungary via Brazil and the US back to Canada.

There will be guest-posts and excerpts from Vivian Arend following the schedule below and on release day September 13th, we (the hosts) will have either a review or release announcement for BLACK GOLD for you. I'll have a review.

There will also be a giveaway in the tour: All comments at all the blogs will be entered for a $50 gift certificate at the book store of the winners choice. So make sure you come back to the blogs from September 1st through September 13th. And visit Vivian's Website too, as she will be hosting authors at her place

September 1 & 2: Feeling Fictional (Sarah), UK
September 3 & 4: Pearl's World of Romance (Me), Holland
September 5 & 6: Ex Libris (Stella), Hungary
September 7 & 8: Larissa’s Bookish Life (Larissa), Brazil
September 9 & 10: The Book Pushers (Nicole), USA
September 11 & 12: My Disorganized Ramlings (Natasha), Canada
September 13: Release Day BLACK GOLD! Reviews/release announcement on all the Blogs

I have the great honor of hosting Vivian on September 3rd and 4th. And I wanted to start the giveaway-fest early. Starting with BLACK GOLD we are stepping away from the Granite Lake Wolves and moving to the Tahkini Wolves. However I know that my love for Vivian Arend's Wolfies started with the Granite Lake Wolves and therefore want to give other readers the full experience in preparation for the arrival of BLACK GOLD.

Vivian has gracefully offered a full set of the Granite Lake Wolves ebooks (Wolf Signs, Wolf Flight, Wolf Games and Wolf Tracks) and I'm giving this set away to one of the commenters on this Announcement Post.

My reviews of:

And that's not all, a second winner will be drawn for a signed ARC of UNDER THE MIDNIGHT SUN (print edition of Wolf Games and Wolf Tracks, books 3 & 4) with some Vivian Arend Swag!

Giveaway Rules:

- This giveaway is open internationally.
- I will draw and announce the two winners on Wednesday August 31st
- If you have a preference for either just the ebook set or just the print arc, make this clear in your entry
- To enter: What is your favorite shifter/werewolves (romance) novel/series and why?

Hmmm...I read a lot of shifter romance novels. I love the Granite Lake series and the characters but I have to say that I am wild about the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs. The world is detailed and alive and the shifters are amazing. But, the real draw is that the readers have been part of Mercy's long term journey. It has been great. I have read all of the Granite Lake books so normally I would say don't enter me but these are signed paper copies. And, SWAG! Eeeee!! Thanks for the giveaway. Be back on the 3rd!

There are so many. Thanks for the contest, and I'd have to say Granite Lake. lisagk(at)yahoo(dot)com

Hey Pearl, great idea for a contest. I recently read a new shifter series with the first book, Primal Law, by J.D. Tyler. It was fabulous.

TiDubb said...

Well I love the Granite Lake series because Vivian's wolves are so alpha and sexy. However, I am a big fan of Shelly Laurenston because she writes all types of shifters. I am a big bear shifter fan-I like the fact that they are huge but vunerable too.


Karen C said...

I have read Christine Feehan's and Sherrilyn Kenyon's shifter novels, however, I am just learning about Vivian Arend and the Granite Lake series and J.D. Tyler's series. I've been trying to make up for lost time! It will be fun following the tour.

If I qualify for your giveaway, I would love to win the e-books. Thanks.

Great giveaway.I'd love to be entered for the ARC and swag.

There are a lot that are favorites.2 are..Kelley Armstrong's Elena and Clay..Tough,strong couple who can get through anything.Also Faythe and Marc from Rachel Vincent's Shifter series.Marc was patient and waited for Faythe and was always there for her even when she didn't deserve it.She's tough and deals with a lot and comes through in the end.

Julie said...

I started out with Christine Feehan, and now I faithfully follow Nalini Singh and Patricia Briggs--I can't not read anything by these ladies!

I'd love either prize pack, please! :)

Otherworld by Kelley Armstrong. Its the series that really introduced me to shifters and Clay and Elena are still favorites.

First off, I love this series by Vivian. Great stories and characters and I can't wait to read more of her books. Other shifters that I love would include Jennifer Ashley and PNR series that include shifters such as Larissa Ione, and a fun/light series would be Kerrelyn Sparks.

I would love either prize but my first choice would be the ecopies of the whole series, because I don't have much space left for print books. I am trying to switch over to ebooks as much as possible, unless it is a series that I am already collecting in print.

OTHERWORLD comes first to mind. Kelley Armstrong writes such amazing stories.

(Just enter me for the print thank you)

There are many shifter authors I love... Shelly Laurenston, Cynthia Eden, to name a couple. The newest (to-me) shifter series that has won my heart is Nalini Singh's Psy/Changeling series. I especially love their complete sense of loyalty, family and friendship. Those qualities coupled with strength and grace just make me melt.

I've not read Vivian's Granite Lake series but look forward to doing so. I have read (& re-read!) her Tangled Tinsel, and thoroughly enjoyed it... a very sexy shifter story! :)

I would love either prize but prefer the ebook copies of the series.

Thanks for the giveaway!

I love shifter books and some of my favorite are written by Shelly Laurenton, Lora Leigh, Christine Feehan, Sherrilyn Kenyon, MaryJanice Davidson (her books are so funny( and J.L. Langley. I also love Vivian's books they are such a great read.

Wow, Vivian is busy, first the Bandicoot Cove series, and now this one? The first shifter series that comes to mind is Nalini Singh and her psy/changelings. I love her writing style, the humor , the characters, but especially the story itself.
I would love to win the signed book (any signed book would be great) and of course the SWAG. Love SWAG.

Jennifer Mathis said...

Nice to meet you!

My Photo
39, married to my real life romance hero, addicted to TV shows, reading romance novels and Twitter. I'm a chronic (e)book hoarder and my absolute favorite genres within romance fiction are contemporary romance and romantic suspense, but I don't shy away from historical, paranormal or erotic romance either. Even the occasional (urban) fantasy romance, futuristic and sci fi romance may make it to my Mount TBR. This is my corner of the world wide web where I let you know what books I'm hoarding, reading and reviewing.
