The Official Spirit's End Raffle!

Well, it's finally here! 2 years after the first books hit the shelves, Eli's story is finally coming to an end. Specifically, SPIRIT'S END!


Yes, the End of Eli is finally here, and what an ending! Just look at all that lightning! Well, there's a lot of lightning to be had in this final installment, and even though most book stores (and Amazon) are already selling/shipping the book (you can read Fantasy Book Critic's rave review here), I'm giving away seven signed copies, one for each day until the official release on November 20! (I mean, what else am I going to do with this awesome box of books Orbit sent me?!) 

 
(THEY DEMAND TO BE GIVEN AWAY!)

BUT WAIT! THERE'S  MORE! In addition to the 7 signed copies of Spirit's End, I'm also giving away a grand prize of all three of my books, signed to the lucky winner, plus a $50 Amazon.com gift card!

THE GRAND PRIZE!
(Not pictured: Amazon.com gift card, my overflowing gratitude that you people read my books!)

So if you're ready to win free books, get ready to spread the word about Eli! Official rules are below. For those of you who've done my contest before, it's the same as always. And since this is Eli's final hurrah, this contest is open WORLD WIDE

Good luck!

Official Spirit's End Raffle Rules!

The Prizes!
You've waited patiently for so long, and now your patience shall be rewarded! I'm giving away 7 personalized signed copies of SPIRIT'S END, one for each day from today to Monday, November 19th! And then, on Tuesday, November 20th, I will be drawing one grand prize winner who will receive signed copies of ALL THREE Eli Monpress editions (that's the first three books in the THE LEGEND OF ELI MONPRESS omnibus, THE SPIRIT WAR, and SPIRIT'S END, all signed to YOU!) plus a $50 Amazon.com gift card to spend on the books of your choice!

How to Enter
To enter to win these amazing prizes, all you have to do is spread the word that SPIRIT'S END is coming out on November 20th! Post about Eli on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, your blog, or any other social platform of your choice and then drop me a note in the comments below letting me know what you did and I'll enter you into the pot.

This is a raffle, that means you can enter multiple times. Every time you spread the word somewhere on the internet (or even in real life! I'll totally count putting up a flyer if you roll old school!) put it in the comments below with a link. Pin the cover, post on Twitter, and mention the book on your blog? That's 3 entries! Tell me so and I'll enter your name 3 times.

I'll be drawing from the comments on this post every day, including today, so the sooner you enter, the more chances you have to win! You can also keep promoting the book every day to increase your chances ever further. Winners will be announced the morning of the day after they win, so today's winner will be announced tomorrow morning, etc.

The grand prize drawing will be on TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 20th at 5:00 PM, east coast US time (EST). After that entries will be closed and I'll be mailing out a lot of books!

Boring Rules Stuff
Since this is the last Eli book, I'm pulling out all the stops! This raffle is open WORLD WIDE! Only one entry per social network per day (so no posting it a million times on Twitter for a million entries :P). Readers who win one of the earlier signed copies are still eligible for the grand prize at the end, but since they already have a book coming to them, I'll pick a new winner to get the extra copy.

If you have any questions about the contest, the rules, or the books, please contact me! If you want to read a sample of SPIRIT'S END, you can do that here.

Good Luck!
And please spread the word of the contest around. If I get a ton of people, I'll just give away more books to keep the chances even. Thanks for playing!
