1st Street Team Giveaway

The first quarterly Spellbound Street Team Giveaway is happening THIS TUESDAY January 1st.
$25 Gift Card at Amazon or another online bookstore
Thank you to the lovely readers/reviewers/bloggers who have helped spread the word about the Spellbound series. I think of you all as fairy godmothers and I am extremely grateful for the warm welcome Entangled has received across the blogosphere. I'm tickled to see Entangled and Duplicity appear on several Top 10 lists for favorite books of 2012 (links at end of this post) and last week Entangled received a national review at thanks to a reviewer who came across it on NetGalley.

Winner's choice of one paperback by Nikki J. Signed, personalized - whatever you want!
I am overwhelmed with gratitude every time a reader emails/messages to say they loved Entangled and asks what they can do to help make readers aware of the series.

Word of mouth and reviews (especially on Amazon) are the two most powerful things a reader can do to help promote a book/series/author they want to support. Taking a moment to rate and write even a couple short sentences enables authors to continue doing what we love best - entertain readers!

Book swag from Rachael Wade, Jenni Merritt, Keary Taylor, and K.A. Last 
For this first giveaway I am including swag I grabbed at my first book signing on Orcas in October with authors Rachael Wade, Keary Taylor, and Jenni Merritt. And up and coming Aussie author K.A. Last who I won two bookmarks from this month. (I like to share.)

If you are an author who would like to contribute swag for the next drawing (April 1), click on the envelope icon at the top right to contact me. This is a great bunch of street team members to get swag out to!

With that, I'd like to wish everyone a new year filled with good health, happiness, love, laughter, and great books!

(As this is an ongoing - quarterly - giveaway, it will never appear as "over." Points carry on so long as there is a street team. New tasks will be added as additional ways to help promote come up.)

Nikki's Top 10 Favorite Reads of 2012
(So hard to pick! This was an awesome year of reading for me - some of the most unique and thoroughly enjoyable titles I've read in a long time. More! More!)

-Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake

And finally, Enchantment (Spellbound #3) is moving along and quite possibly the most fun I've ever had writing a book. I plan to finish up in the next week or two, let the manuscript settle as I outline the second volume of Aurora Sky (Metamorphosis), start self-edits, pass it onto my beta readers, and then bring in the professionals. Looking at an early spring release.

I'm planning a one day only 99 cent special thank you to fans. If you're a street team member I'll let you know the date. Otherwise, sign up here to receive an email alert.


  1. Eeep! SO excited for Enchantment!!

    And I also loved Anna Dressed in Blood! It was SO creepy yet was awesome!

    1. Excellent timing. I hope everyone enjoys reading Enchantment as much as I have writing it.

      Anna Dressed in Blood sucked me into ghost hunting stories. I'm so happy Karina Halle has her Experiment in Terror series. (Book one, Darkhouse, is even free!) Her style fits me even better because they're new adult and racier. Yes, please. ;)
