RITA Nominees Giveaway

Wednesday, July 7

I have something a little bit extra special for you today :)

Some of you may or may not know that the Romance Writer's Association (RWA) annual conference is at the end of this month.  At this conference they will be awarding the RITA award to authors that represent the best in romance fiction published in 2009 (it's kind of like the Oscars of the Romance world).  To celebrate Forever Romance is having a very special giveaway to honor all of their authors that they have published that have been nominated with a "RITA NOMINEES GIVEAWAY"....and Seductive Musings was chosen as one of the select few blogs to share in their celebrations!  Isn't that exciting!

Want to know what you could win?  Three lucky Seductive Musings readers will win ALL six of the Forever Romance RITA nominees:
That's an amazing prize!  I have had the pleasure of reading almost all of these books and I have to agree that they are all worthy of receiving the award that they have been nominated for. But who do you think will win  a  RITA?  Take a guess and you might just win the giveaway.

This giveaway is going to be slightly different from ones I've had in the past.  To enter to win this collection of books you will need to complete the RITA Nominees giveaway form and select which book you think will win in each category.  Once the RWA awards ceremonies are over (July 31) I will go through and tabulate to find out which entries had the most correct selections.  The three entries that have the highest number of correct RITA winners will win the Forever Romance RITA Nominees Giveaway.  In the event there is a tie the winners will be selected by whoever has the most extra entries and/or they will be chosen randomly from among the highest scoring entries.  If you'd like to learn more about the books nominated before making your selections you can find them here.  Have fun!

p.s. and if you have favorites that you hope will win feel free to comment...or are there books that you feel should have been nominated and weren't?   It won't gain you any extra entries, but I would love to hear your thoughts.  I can think of a few.

If they successfully enter to win and mention that you sent them you can each earn extra entries.  You can blog about it with a link to this post,  post it on Facebook, Twitter, email...or even word of mouth (good for 5 entries for the referrer and the commenter for each friend) .  Please note that to earn the points they must mention your GFC name so that I can match you.

I was happy to see Elizabeth Hoyt, Liz Carlyle, and Tessa Dare as nominees. It was hard to make choices on some of the categories like Inspirational romance since I haven't read any of them.

Thanks for the chance to win some great books. I filled out the form.

I hope Victoria Dahl wins, 'Talk Me Down' was a fun read. Can't go wrong with Rachel Gibson either, everything I've read by her has been very good. Sweet, sexy, sensitive and her men speak like real men - which I like. 'True Love & Other Disasters' was no different.

I am surprised Eloisa James', 'A Duke Of Her Own' wasn't nominated. Villiers is such a popular character and ADOHO was the best of her Dutchess series.

Hard to pick in the last category, as most of those books I had read and I loved them all. Victoria Dahl I think was the only one I had not read... But she is on my list of authors to read..

Voted and wish all the nominees the best of luck. Deidre Knight's Butterfly Tattoo was an exceptional read, one of my best reads to date.
Thanks for the chance.

I've only read one of these authors (Julia Harper - I thought the cover for 'Pete' was very cute and fit the story) so this would be a great way to get to know some more authors who look like they've been chosen for distinction by their peers.

Going to go become a follower, now!

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy one...so in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both Amazon.com and Amazon.ca gift cards on this rewards site)
