BURN giveaway!

Hey gang!

Soooo, right before I left for Book Bash in Orlando, I received ARCs of BURN in the mail. We’re just a month away from release day! Anyway, I thought I’d give you guys a chance to win an advanced copy of BURN :)

To enter, simply post below and tell me who you’re favorite “guy” in the Breathless trilogy is. Granted you haven’t gotten to read Ash’s story yet, but you’ve gotten glimpses of him in the previous two books *g*

That’s it! I’ll leave the contest open until Thursday of this week and post winners by Friday morning. At that time you’ll have until Monday morning to claim your book by emailing me and providing a mailing address. Any unclaimed books will be given away on twitter next week.

I’m giving away FIVE copies. Ready? Set? GO!!!

Book Bash winners!

Ok gang, I’m a bit late posting winners but I didn’t get in until LATE last night from the event in NYC. So I”m posting winners below. You’ll have until Friday to email me your info and claim your ticket! If I don’t hear from you, I’ll award the ticket to another entrant.

Here are the winners!

Brenda Hans
Patricia French
Michelle the romance witch
Ginger Groover

Ok ladies! I need you to email me at maya@mayabanks.com with BOOK BASH TICKET WINNER in the subject header. And remember! You MUST claim your ticket by Friday!



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!

RUSH Giveaway (take 2)

Ok so the gremlins ate the first RUSH giveaway post. Some people can see it. Most can’t (me included) VERY ANNOYING and I apologize for the inconvenience. I’m reposting the original post below so that MAYBE everyone can see it and participate.  Again, sorry!

Hey gang! As promised, I’m going to give away advance copies of RUSH :) And what better way to start off the new year than to give out some pressies!

If you’d like to be entered to win, just comment below and tell me what your favorite read of 2012 was. If you absolutely CAN’T narrow it down to just ONE, feel free to list two or three. But let me know what you read and LOVED this year!

I’ll leave the contest open through Monday, Jan 7th. I’ll be out of town until Sunday. Winners will have a couple of days to respond and send me their mailing address but please be aware! We’re down to ONE MONTH until RUSH releases so you’ll need to check back on MONDAY to see if you’re a winner. If the ARC isn’t claimed in a short time, I’ll award the book to someone else. I want to get these books out to y’all before the book actually releases :)

As always, ALL of my giveaways are open to international readers. No restrictions, so enter and comment away :)

And have a wonderful new year!! Here’s to an even MORE awesome 2013!



ARC winners!

ok gang, as suspected, I didn’t get back home until late last night from Girlie’s softball tournament. They did awesome and came in third!

Without further ado, here are the winners!

Congratulations ladies! If you’ll email me ASAP with your mailing address, I’ll get those ARCs in the mail to you this week. I’m off to the World Series next week so I’ll be out of pocket for a while.

ARC giveaway!

I have two leftover uncorrected bound galleys for Never Seduce a Scot up for grabs. I’m actually finishing up the galley proofs TODAY and what that means is that you’ll be getting an “uncorrected” early copy of the book. Which means you’ll find minor errors or typos that are corrected before the final “finished” copy is released in September. I have several pages of corrections so far so there are definitely mistakes in the uncorrected galley. If this sort of thing ruins the story for you, then I’d advise you not to enter the drawing for those two uncorrected copies.

So anyway now that the explanation is out of the way, let’s get to the good part. I’ll leave this contest open until Sunday nightish. Now, bear in mind, Girlie has a softball tournament out of town this weekend and I likely won’t get home until Sunday afternoon, so it’s entirely possible that I’ll completely forget to post winners Sunday night. It might not happen until Monday :) But the ARCs will be mailed out as SOON as we get addresses from the winners.

And as a side note, you’ll have a day or two max to claim your prize. I won’t hunt you down and find you. It’s your responsibility to check back by Monday to see if you’ve won. If you email me Thursday, I’ll have to regretfully tell you that the book was awarded to another winner.

All my contests are always ALWAYS open to international entries. I always get asked, but I’ve always had them open to international entries and I have no plans to change that :)

So to enter, tell me ONE book you’ve read and LOVED recently. The last book I got to read for pure enjoyment was an ARC of Nalini Singh’s Archangel’s Storm. *sigh* It was SO awesome. She makes me swoon with her writing.

Sweet Addiction ARC winners!

Diana, comment #284

Congrats to everyone! Now I need y’all to email me your mailing addresses so I can send out the books early this week! You can send to maya@mayabanks.com

YAY! contest part two!

Ok for this one, I have a few ARCs of Whispers in the Dark to give away and here’s your chance to win it :) Whispers releases January 3rd so not too long! But here’s your chance to get an early peek. I’ll leave the contest open until Sunday at which point I’ll post winners and you’ll have until Monday morning to get back to me with your mailing address. Books will go out Monday or Tuesday so I won’t chase you down to tell you that you’ve won. So be SURE to check back and if you win, email me your mailing address because you won’t have days and days to claim your prize. Sound good? Here’s a little about Whispers :)

She came to him when he needed her the most

She came to him at his lowest point. The voice of an angel, a whisper in the dark. She’s the only thing that gets Nathan Kelly through his captivity, the endless days of torture and the fear that he’ll never return to his family. With her help, he’s able to escape. But he isn’t truly free, because now she’s disappeared and he’s left with an all-consuming emptiness as he struggles to pick up the pieces of his life. Did he imagine his angel? Or is she out there, needing his help as he’d once needed hers?
Now he rushes to save her before it’s too late

Shea has been on the run from people who will stop at nothing to exploit her unique abilities. She never wanted to drag Nathan, who’d already suffered so much, into danger, but she doesn’t have a choice so she reaches out to him for help. Finally face-to-face after having already formed a soul-deep bond in hell, their emotional connection is even more powerful than their telepathic one. Nathan refuses to consider ever letting her go again, but she worries they can never have a life free of the dangers that dog her every step. He’ll protect her with his every breath, but can he convince her that they are meant to face these threats together?

You can read an excerpt here!

Sound good? Then let’s get started :) To enter, just tell me you want the ARC!
