Book Bash TICKET contest!

Hey guys,

I now a lot of you WANTED to attend Book Bash  but when you tried to get tickets they were sold out :(  Attendance for this event ROCKS at right around 1200 readers. What a fabulous time to be had in Orlando June 29th!

SO, here’s the scoop. I have FOUR tickets to give away to the sold out event. There are a few stipulations so be sure and read the below points CAREFULLY.

1. Only one ticket will be awarded to the winning entries.

2. You MUST be absolutely certain that you will attend the event. It wouldn’t be fair to enter and win if you aren’t 100 percent sure you’d go because then someone else would be denied the opportunity!

3. You can read all about Book Bash here.

4. This contest will only be open until Wednesday June 19th! That will ensure time enough to get winner’s info and sent on to the awesome folks at Book Bash so they can get you registered

5. You ONLY have ONE day to email me to claim your ticket. After one day, you forfeit the ticket and it will be awarded to another winner.

So, to enter, just tell me WHY you want to go to Book Bash and which authors you’re looking forward to seeing most and what books you want to get signed at the event! I’ll draw a winner Wednesday night and the winners will have until Thursday night to email me to claim your ticket.

Ready, set, GO! :) And Good luck and I hope to see you there!

    I am attending the Book Bash in Orlando,Fl. I am originally from Fl and my family still resides there. I planned my family vacation around this event.
    I have passed my love of reading and books to both of my children. My daughter is a mini me.
    Shortly after I got my ticket to attend my sixteen year old daughter started reading several of the new adult authors who are attending the signing. It is wonderful because now we share many conversations about books that we have both loved. We pick our book boyfriends together, load the play list from books on our ipod and sing at the top of our lungs on the way to school each morning. When she saw the list of authors attending she wanted to come along with me and my girlfriend. We have been trying desperately to get her a ticket. So I am entering for her to recieve a ticket. And no Maya…she has not read your books yet. I think maybe she needs to get through college first…lol! I will let her read the KGI books. We joke about the “bad” senator from Polk County in Darkest Hour. Polk County is almost in our back yard.

    I almost forgot. I am getting your books signed! Also Kristen Ashley, Karina Halle, Debra Anastasia, S. C. Stephens, Liliana Hart, Shayla Black, Renee Carlino, Jamie McGuire, Laurann Dohner, Laura Kaye, Aleatha Romig, Tara Sivec, Jasinda Wilder, Kristen Proby,Tarryn Fisher, and many more.
    My daughter wants to get Jasinda Wilder, S. C. Stephens, Jamie McGuire, Colleen Hoover, J. Sterling, K. A. Tucker, Renee Carlino, Rebecca Donovan, Abbi Glines, and more…
    I am so looking forward to meeting you. I have been reading your books since the beginning of your career. Before ereaders were available. I had to have my husband help me download Adobe on my laptop to read the books from Samhain publishing.
    I am so looking forward to meeting many of my goddesses!

    I live south of Orlando but have been looking forward to this book bash. Let’s see: Lisa Renee Jones, you, Shayla Black, Sylvia Day, Laurann Dohner, and others. :-)

    Wow the opportunity to have that many authors in one space. How did I not know about this event since it is in my backyard?

    Well just the opportunity to have a day with such amazing talent and other bookaholics would be an absolute delight.

    In regards to favorite authors that is tough but yourself, Sylvia Day and Shiloh Walker would be my top 3 if I was forced to choose.

    Regarding what books I want signed my answer would be “All of them.”

    Well I would love to go to, I am from Orlando and now live in Tennessee. I’ve been a huge fan of your for years would think it would be great to finally meet you. But I am sending this for my best friend she lives in Orlando and is a fan of yours. She had never read your books and I gave her a couple as a gift when she was going through her divorce, she was have a very hard time and was trying to be mom and dad to her then 3 year old daughter, well anyway she was very depressed and had kinda given up on the HEA so First I gave her your Sweet Series because she really needed the laughter that I got of those books and then then I gave her Four Play, which was for inspiration LOL!!! We anyway she has been there for me through so much and we are each other sholder to cry on and really she never gets to do anything for herself, so when I saw this contest I thought what a great way for her to have some fun time and knowing that it has has been really rough for her these last few years

    When I went to purchase three tickets, the tickets were already sold out! I went on the waitlist as well as my niece but I only was able to purchase the ticket and need one for my niece who would really like to attend. This is my first time to attend a signing so I am really looking forward to it! I would like to get your book Fever autographed. I would also like to see Shayla Black, Lisa Renee Jones as well as others. But looking forward to meeting you and Shayla Black!

  7. Wyndi Lopez says:

    I really would like to win a ticket so that I can attend with my aunt who is a big fan of yours! She read a lot of your books. She has even got my mother to read 1 or 2 of your historical books. This is the first time for us so I would really like to win a ticket to see my aunt’s happy face!

    I live in Florida and when I found out about this event I was so excited. So many creative story tellers are going to be there. However, by the time I saw it the event was already sold out. The reason I would like to go is to personally thank all the authors for there books. I have read over 40 in this genre so far this year and the majority are going to be at book bash.

    Some of my authors I would be most excited to meet are you, Sylvia Day, Kristen Proby, S.C. Stephens and Jamie McGuire.

    As for the books to be signed, if I had the opportunity I would say all of them. I just know packing my bookshelf would give me a reason to finally dust it lol.

    I live in Gainesville Fl, and when I saw that two of my favorite authors were going to be in Orlando I tried to jump on the Book Bash event immediately. Well when I got to the page the even was sold out :( I freak out when Maya Banks answers my questions on Facebook so to meet her and Sylvia Day in person would be mind blowing. I’ve just started reading Maya Banks about November of last year. I’ve already read majority of her books. To have my book signed by these amazing authors would be AWESOME! I’ve never been to something like this before. Heck I’ve never been in to reading like this before. If I don’t win, It would……well… would suck lol but I’ll be sure to catch the next one no matter where it’s held. I think you’re amazing for doing this. You always seem to put your fans in front. Thanks for the chance!!!

    1. Terri says:

      oh it’s me again haha the books I want signed are……Shades of Gray P.J’s story hit home for me. I read that book in one day. I couldn’t put down. It was hard for me to read the rape scene but I just couldn’t stop. I loved her story and I may sound twisted, but I loved her revenge just as much. She and Sarah Kelly are proof that you won’t always be the victim.

      The other book I plan on getting signed is Sylvia Day’s Bared to you. Oh man Eva and Gideon have such an intense love that I love to be the fly on the wall to witness it. I fell in love with those two instantly. Again Eva’s history hits close to home and I really love to see the women in these stories really pick themselves up and move forward. The past is still there but they amazing, strong, passionate men to chase away the demons.

    I live in Tampa, and this was so nice to see a book signing so close to home. But like many others, it was sold out. I had to talk hubby into letting me go in the first place.
    I would get books signed by you and Shayla Black, since I must say I have not heard of many of the other authors, however that does not mean that I am not looking for someone new to try out!
    This would be my first big book signing, I have never been to one like this, no clue how they work, so this will be a great experience if I was chosen.
    Thank you for doing this lovely giveaway!

  11. Karen Garson says:

    OH I would love to come to your book signing!!! You are such an awesome talent and I would be honored to have a book signed and actually meeting your would be beyond words!!!!!!!! Hope I am not too late for your contest.. And which book I would loved signed?? I would have to close my eyes and pick one.. I LOVE them ALL!! You have made me laugh, cry and cringe all in one book!! Not to mention the steam that comes from my kindle when I start reading one of your books LOL!! I purchase in both forms and you are one of the few that I do that with since I want to keep them on my bookshelf uncreased and in perfect condition.

  12. Monica says:

    Hi Maya, thanks for making these tickets available to us, your fans. I live in Tampa and would love to go to book bash. The tickets were sold out when I tried to buy them.i really want to meet you and get my Sweet series signed. I also love the new Breathless trilogy and can’t wait to read Burn. My sister and I hope to see you at book bash. Thank you.

  13. Meighan A says:

    I live in Oldsmar, FL and when I heard about the book bash I was instantly intrigued. I have never been and have always wanted to go. Since they are sold out I am still planning in attending in hopes that I can get in! I am wanting to meet Sylvia Day the most because I’m crazy over her books! Her Crossfire series is the best series I have ever read. I am a book reader and there are many series I’ve read but by far she is the greatest!!

    I also would like to meet Jamie McGuire. Another his series!!

    I can’t wait!!!

    I would love to win the tickets because:
    1) I live within an hour of the Book Bash in sunny Winter Haven which is the home of Legoland. Also, Polk county is the meth capital of the US (due to our phosphate mines which cover up the scent of cooking meth), and is also reportedly the lightning capital of the world.

    2) I would love love LOVE to meet the awesome entertaining great story-teller Maya Banks. Above all other names, that is the number one with a bullet I want to meet. I want to get any of her Kelly series books autographed (I own most on Kindle, but want to buy the new book and get it signed of course!).

    It looks like there are so many fresh new authors I’d like to meet and buy their books. Laurann Dohner looks like a sci-fi romance author and Tiffany Snow looks like a suspense author I’d like to read and get their autographs.

    3) I love book festivals! I just got back from the Lori Foster Get Together in Ohio, and had such a wonderful time. Lora Leigh bought breakfast for her fans! I didn’t know about the one in Orlando, or I would have bought tickets the instant they were available. Even if I don’t win tickets this go around, I will be on the lookout for tickets for the 2014 event.

    I would love to meet u & tell u how your books helped me thru the toughest days of my life. When I was 18 I was diagnosed with a pituitary tumor & at 25 I had my first brain surgery. Since then I’ve had 12 more surgeries & countless procedures but the one thing that has never changed is my love of reading. After I was told I would never be able to work a full time job again I was looking for something to help me fill my days . Reading has saved my sanity & gives me something to look forward too. I have ALL your books in print & on my kindle. If I had to chose which books for u to sign first I would pick KGI series, Colter’s then Sweet. I would like to meet Sylvia Day & Shayla Black but I would be thrilled to make the trip just to meet me bc u are by far my favorite. I cannot wait for Forged in Steele & I would love for u to be able to sign it for me. I know most people read for Entertainment but I read for survival so keep writing Maya because I truly believe God has blessed you with a gift.

    I would love to be able to go to this event because i just really need a boost lately. I lost my job over 6 months ago and haven’t been able to find work so i have been trying hard to keep myself out of a total depression. I found out about this event too late to get tickets myself as they were already sold out, but winning a chance to go would be awesome. I would very much like to meet you of course, along with Kristen Ashley,Shayla Black, Sylvia Day, and a few more. And for me i will probably bring Be with Me as it is my favorite of your books and of course i’ll bring an autograph book that can go into my treasure chest :) to be kept safe forever for all the authors to sign. Thanks so much for the chance to win! Cannot wait to see Forged in Steele in my mailbox in just a few days! :D

  17. Michelle says:

    I’m a Mom to 3 boys and I read to “escape”. What better way to “escape” – than to actually ESCAPE? Just think – an escape… at Book Bash! It’s just like putting the cherry on top of the nuts on top of the whipped cream on top of the hot fudge that is on top of the ice cream LOL!! The authors I’d love to meet & have autographs would be (you) Maya Banks; Kristen Ashley; Emily Snow; Laurann Dohner; Shayla Black; Liliana Hart – and those are just my first picks! I would probably bring “Forged In Steele” with me for signing, because with it coming out on the 25th, I wouldn’t have had time to completely ruin it by having read it so much that it looked like it’d been run through my washing machine LOL!!

  18. Patricia French says:

    I would be on cloud 9 to see my favorite girl Maya Banks. I am so addicted to your books and can’t begin to tell you how many times I’ve read them. LOL They seem to just get better every time I read them. I became disabled 2 yrs ago and I am so limited on what I can do now. I can do this mini trip and it would be the best thing to happen to me since I became ill. Reading all of my fav authors and finding new ones is the best. There is nothing that would keep me from coming and seeing you.


    I ALWAYS seem to be a day late and a dollar short on anything that interestes me. I would LOVE to attend the Book Bash here in Orlando!!! Hope to see you there?!?!


      Jasinda Wilder, Liliana Hart, Lisa Renee Jones, Shayla Black, and of course you. You were the first of all of the authors I’ve read starting with Colters’ Woman.

    Hello Maya. I live in Okeechobee,Florida only an hour and a half south of Orlando. When I found out about Book Bash and that it was sold out I was very disappointed,until now! Thanks for having this wonderful opportunity for your fans to get a chance to meet you. You are the author I would most like to meet,but I would also like to meet your good friends Sylvia Day and Shayla Black. Sweet Persuasion is my favorite out of the Sweet Series and all your novels. I have read it countless times!! Wish I could find someone like the handsome,dark,powerful dominant Damon Roche to possess me :)))))If I’m chosen as one of the winners I’ll bring this novel as well as Pillow Talk,another of my favorites, for you to sign. Thanks again for this wonderful opportunity.

  21. Helen says:

    I am such a big fans of yours and would love the opportunity to mingle and meet you and the other amazing authors and tell you how much you helped during a difficult time in my life. Your books provide a much needed slice a escape, serenity, and just peace of mind which can’t be capture in words.

  23. Leydy says:

    I am attending Book Bash. I bought my ticket the moment the event tickets were out. Unfortunately my best friend was too late to buy hers. We are trying to spend as much time as possible since I will be moving out of Florida at the end of the summer. I would love to share one last time the love of a book signing with her.
