Tana lives in a world where walled cities called Coldtowns exist. In them, quarantined monsters and humans mingle in a decadently bloody mix of predator and prey. The only problem is, once you pass through Coldtown’s gates, you can never leave.

One morning, after a perfectly ordinary party, Tana wakes up surrounded by corpses. The only other survivors of this massacre are her exasperatingly endearing ex-boyfriend, infected and on the edge, and a mysterious boy burdened with a terrible secret. Shaken and determined, Tana enters a race against the clock to save the three of them the only way she knows how: by going straight to the wicked, opulent heart of Coldtown itself.

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown is a wholly original story of rage and revenge, of guilt and horror, and of love and loathing from bestselling and acclaimed author Holly Black.

This is a great take on vampires that takes out all the glitter and romance and replace it with creepy and violence. Enter to win a copy of this fantastic recent release. Open to those with US mailing addresses only.

Clear Your Shelf Giveaway Hop - Take My Stuff!

I got a lot of stuff and I want people to take it away, so I have more room in my office and on my shelf. Thankfully Kathy at I Am a Reader, Not a Writer and Mary at Bookhounds are hosting the August edition of the Clear Your Shelf giveaway hop! Huzzah!

This contest will run from the time this post goes up through midnight on August 27th. Two winners will be chosen! Winners must have a US mailing address and respond to my email within 48 hours to claim their prize. And what is the prize?

Below are several pictures of the box that originally held my giveaway items, the pile of books that have piled on top of the books and another for the books on my giveaway shelf in my library. I am going to take two of the medium sized USPS flat rate boxes and fill them with as many books, posters, book marks, buttons, bracelets and assorted swag that I can possible fit in them and send them to the lucky winners. Each box will have at least 3 books (mix of ARCs and finished copies), though I think I can fit four or five in each box. You can choose whether you only want YA or adult titles and I'll do my best to accommodate. 

So here are the pictures (I apologize for the quality in advance) and the entry form is below. You can find the rest of the participants in the hop over at Kathy's giveaway post.

Purchase The Grimm Diaries volume 7-10 for just 99 cents!

Grimm Diaries Prequels by Cameron Jace

What if all you knew about fairy tales was wrong? 

Warning: these Grimm Prequels are like snap shots of a magical land you're about to visit soon. I like to think of them as poisoned apples. Once you taste them, you will never see fairy tales in the same light again.

 This Grimm Diaries Prequels are a number of short books in the form of epistolary diary entries. The diaries are more of teasers for the upcoming series: The Grimm Diaries, allowing you to get a glimpse of what to expect of the series. The 6 diaries are told by The Evil Queen, Peter Pan, Little Red Riding Hood, the Devil, Prince Charming, and Alice Grimm

The first book in the Series will be out in February 2013, called SNOW WHITE SORROW. 

Series Description: 
The Grimm Diaries are pages written in a Book of Sand, where each fairy tale character confessed the true stories once altered by the Brothers Grimm two centuries ago. To keep the truth about fairy tales hidden, the Brothers Grimm buried the characters in their dreams to never wake up again. But the curse is broken now, and the characters are allowed to wake up every one hundred years. They intend to tell the truth about really happened, and about an untold cosmic conflict between fairy tale characters.

Snow White Sorrow by Cameron Jace
Releasing in February 2013

Read more about it on GoodReads

Sixteen year old Loki Blackstar is no Prince Charming. His mother is a ghost. His only friend is a red Cadillac that talks to him through the radio. He looks like an Angel but acts like jerk. No wonder he has been banned from Heaven, which is the least of his troubles. Loki needs a job to pay for school and support himself.

Still, Loki has a rare gift: He is a Dreamhunter. One of the few in the world who can hunt and kill immortal demons in their dreams so they never wake up again.

When Loki is sent to kill a sixteen-year-old vampire girl the locals call Snow White Sorrow, he is pulled into a magical but dangerous world. The locals believe the monster to be Snow White.

The real Snow White… living in the ruins of an ancient castle in a small town. She is described as horribly beautiful, terrifyingly enchanting, and wickedly lovely.

What he finds instead is a beautiful monster girl filled with rage and hurt, who has an epic untold story to tell of things such like why the Brothers Grimm altered the fairy tale, who the Evil Queen really is, where the mirror came from, and who possessed it.

Snow White has killed every person who has dared come near the castle where she once lived with the queen. Mysteriously, she lets Loki live, and whispers two words in his ears; two words that will change his life forever.

 

Author Bio:

Cameron Jace: Wonderlander, Neverlander, Unicorn-chaser, enchanter, musician, survived a coma, & totally awesome. Sometimes I tell stories. Always luv the little monsters

I write young adult paranormal romance, urban fantasy, and science fiction mostly. The Grimm Diaries series is a seven book saga that deals with retellings of fairy tales from a young adult POV – it connects most of the fairy tales together and claims to be the truth about fairy tales.

I live in San Fransisco and seriously think circles are way cooler than triangles.

My favorite part about Halloween is seeing all the little kids in their costumes. I'm partial to the tiny little superheroes, but all of them are crazy cute. This is the first year since I was a kid that I'm actually dressing up. Fernando decided he wanted to go to this costume party shindig as the current Doctor, which means I'll be going as the lovely Miss Amy Pond. Are you dressing up this Halloween?

But you're not here to discuss costumes. You're here for prizes! Well, I'm feeling generous so there will be THREE WINNERS. Yes, that's right - THREE! Each will get to pick a book from my magic box of contest giveaway books (okay, so it's not really magic, but it just sounds better when I say it is).

Anyway our rules remain our usual rules: the contest officially begins as soon as I post this and runs through 12:01am central time on November 1. The giveaway is open to anyone with a US mailing address and will be chosen via Rafflecopter about a week after the contest closes. The winner will have 48 hours to respond via email or another winner will be chosen. Please respond if you are my winner because it makes me sad when I have to choose someone else. All following options are in the sidebar on the left, right under the WFTM banner.

Here's the pool of books up for grabs (additional ones may be added later):
