Giveaways and Preorder Info

So far, it's been a good year at My Ever Expanding Library for giveaways. Well, the fun continues today with 2 more books that are coming out in paperback next week. I'm happy to offer a copy of each of Bite Me by Christoper Moore and Horns by Joe Hill. To enter, you must have a US or Canadian mailing address and you must be a follower of my blog. Just leave a comment below with your contact info and telling me which of these awesome books you'd like to win (only one winner per book):

I reviewed Bite Me last year, when it releases in hardcover, you can read my review here. I'm a huge Christopher Moore fan but find it interesting how well he put voice to a teenage girl...just saying ;-) I'm wishing I had a cat like Chet. He seems like alotta fun too.
The city of San Francisco is being stalked by a huge shaved vampyre cat named Chet, and only I, Abby Normal, emergency backup mistress of the Greater Bay Area night, and my manga-haired love monkey, Foo Dog, stand between the ravenous monster and a bloody massacre of the general public.

Whoa. And this is a love story? Yup. 'Cept there's no whining. See, while some lovers were born to run, Jody and Tommy were born to bite. Well, reborn, that is, now that they're vampires. Good thing theirs is an undying love, since their Goth Girl Friday, Abby Normal, imprisoned them in a bronze statue.

Abby wants to be a bloodsucking fiend, too, but right now she's really busy with other stuff, like breaking in a pair of red vinyl thigh-high Skankenstein® platform boots and wrangling her Ph.D.-candidate boyfriend, Steve (the love monkey). And then there's that vampire cat Chet, who's getting bigger and smarter—and thirstier—by the minute. Abby thought she and Steve could handle the kitty cat on their own, mais non . . .

Before you can say "OMG! WTF?" Tommy and Jody are sprung from captivity, and join forces with Abby, Steve, the frozen-turkey-bowling Safeway crew, the Emperor of San Francisco and his trusty dogs Lazarus and Bummer, Abby's gay Goth friend Jared, and SF's finest Cavuto and Rivera to hunt big cat and save the city. And that's when the fun really begins.

I haven't read Horns yet, but will hopefully have a review to offer shortly:

Ignatius Perrish spent the night drunk and doing terrible things. He woke up the next morning with a pair of horns growing from his temples.

At first, Ig thought the horns were a hallucination, the product of a mind damaged by rage and grief. He had spent the last year in a lonely, private purgatory, following the death of his beloved, Merrin Williams, who had been raped and murdered under inexplicable circumstances. A mental breakdown would have been the most natural thing in the world. But there was nothing natural about the horns, which were all too real.

Once, the righteous Ig had enjoyed the life of the blessed. But Merrin's death damned all that. The only suspect in the crime, Ig was never charged or tried. And he was never cleared. Nothing Ig can do or say matters. Everyone it seems, including God, has abandoned him. Everyone that is, but the devil inside. . . .

Now Ig is possessed of a terrible new power—a macabre talent he intends to use to find the monster who killed Merrin and destroyed his life. It's time for a little revenge . . . it's time the devil had his due . . .

If you just can't wait to find out if you've won, Harper Collins has a special order for pre-orders. Here's what they have to say:

The first 1000 people to preorder Joe’s latest novel and then email with proof of purchase will receive a specialized bookplate from Joe – he’s been signing and doodling all sorts of creations on bookplates for days now! For more information on this giveaway and the rest of Joe’s books, visit and follow Joe on Twitter @joe_hill.

That makes it win-win all around, right?! I will draw winners using on March 16, 2011. Good luck and happy reading :-)
