My Epically Big (much like the series) Outlander Giveaway!

Friday, December 3

I think you all have heard me mention (more than once) that Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, is one of my all time favorite romance reads (even though the author doesn’t like it referred to as a romance).  In fact, it is one of only a handful of books (probably less than five altogether) that I have read more than once.  If I could take only one book with me to a deserted island from this century….Outlander would be that book.  I LOVE it, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE Jamie and Claire….but especially Jamie *grin*.   He is "hands down" my favorite fictional hero…ever! 

I think this book is best shared, and trust me you will want to share this book with your friends/family and get them hooked on the series as much as you will be (ie…have someone who is enamored and engrossed by it as you are and talk with about it.  A misery loves company type of thing, but in this case euphoria loves company *smile*)    Which is why I am so excited to share my love of Outlander with all of you by giving away over 20 copies throughout the month of December thanks to Diana Gabaldon's publisher, Delacorte Press (Random House), who sent me an entire box of this special edition to share with you and your friends!  That's right, I’d like to giveaway copies to both the winner and the winner’s friends!  Just comment and you’ll be entered to win at least one copy.   Tis the season for giving....fa la la la la la la la la :)

Here's how to enter to win, and the special rules and restrictions for this giveaway.  Please read them carefully as they are not the usual R & R.
  • In your comment tell me if you've read the book, and if not why not?  AND who you would like to share the book with and why, as well as how many copies of the book you'd like to win. (you can select up to four people to share it with for a total of five copies per winner)
  • You MUST be a Google Friend Connect (GFC) follower in order to be eligible to win (unfortunately an email subscriber, or subscription in Google reader, and a follower are not the same thing so make sure you are signed up as a follower if you'd like to win this book)
  • If you have a blog, or even if you don't, you can earn extra entries by telling your friends. 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.
  • Please only request the number of copies you really need…I’d like to share my love of Outlander with as many people as possible, and while I will be more than happy to giveaway 5 copies to each winner, if you don’t really NEED five copies, and requested that many because that is the maximum that you can win, I’d respectfully request that you don’t so that I have more copies to giveaway to other commenters.  
  • You must be specific in who you’d like to share the book with….which means no vague entries like “I can’t wait to share this with my friends.  If I win I’d like a total of 5 copies”.  Tis the season for sharing…but let's not be greedy.  I hate to even say that, but from past experience it’s necessary.  Sad but true. 
  • If you have a blog/website I respectfully ask that you not request copies to giveaway on your own blog.  I’d like to share my love of this book with you…my followers, who read, visit, and comment at Seductive Musings, and in turn have you share the book with people that you know who you think might also enjoy reading it. 
  • I also ask that you don't request extra copies in order to sell them on sites such as Ebay, or in any way for monetary gain.  Outlander fans are fanatics (justifiably so IMHO) and books such as this special "Free" edition of Outlander  are limited, so I am sure there are people out there who would be willing to pay for it.  Please don't do this since it is not in the spirit of the giveaway.
  • If you’ve already read the book, and even if you already own a copy you can still enter the giveaway for you and your friends.  Because if you are anything like me, you like to have an extra copy of the books that you love around “just in case”, and after all this is a special edition book not available for purchase (or shouldn't be).   
  • I’ve given these restrictions careful thought, and I hope that you understand why I felt it necessary to have them, and to keep with the spirit and original intent of the giveaway.  
Other Rules and disclaimers:
  • This contest is open to US addresses only.  My apologies to my Canadian and other International readers.
  • You must be at least 18 years or older, or of legal age in your country
  • The giveaway doesn’t have a specific end date like most of the giveaways at Seductive Musings since it will depend on how many copies each winner requests. I will giveaway my copies until all of them are gone.  So I guess you can enter to win until all of the winners have been announced.
  • Winner(s) will be chosen from among eligible comments using
  • The winner(s) will have THREE days from the date they are posted to provide a mailing address. If you do not contact me within three days a replacement winner will be selected. NO EXCEPTIONS
  • Seductive Musings is not responsible for prizes that are not honored, distributed in a timely manner, lost, stolen, or damaged during transit 
  • All giveaways are subject to change/cancellation without prior written notice
Good Luck!

Ooh! How Exciting! Someone just shared this series with me and I HAVEN'T read it yet, but plan too. I'd love one copy so that I don't have to borrow it! Thanks!

Bethie December 3, 2010 at 10:28 PM  

Thank you for such an awesome giveaway. I follow on GFC.
I have not read Outlander yet. It is one of those books that is on my wishlist but I haven't been lucky enough to get yet. My three friends and I have such a great book swap going that my TBR pile is very high. I honestly feel that I shouldn't spend any more money on books when I have so many to read yet.
That being said, I would love to win one for myself, of course, and my three friends Jo, Donna and Kim. This way we can all read the book at the same time. I would like to put in to win 4 copies. Thanks again!

This is a very epic giveaway! I've never read Outlander because... I've just never gotten around to it. I have such a huge TBR pile/list I haven't gotten around to most of them >.< I haven't bought it either because I haven't stumbled on it at any of the thrift stores I like to shop at. I'd like to win one copy. I'll likely lend it to my bestie, but since I'm not sure this is her kind of book, I don't want to waste any giveaway copies. Thanks :)


Asylumgirl December 3, 2010 at 11:06 PM  

I haven't read Outlander yet though I have been meaning too and it has been recommended to me. I would love to share it with my mom and my aunt who are total bookaholics like me.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Claire and Jamie !! This was the first Big Kid Romance book i ever read and I make it a point to read the whole series every few years! I JUST downloaded it to my kindle app on my blackberry to start reading as of the first of the year but having the book to to hold would be SO much better! I would share one copy with my best friend Nicole because her boyfriend is in Iraq till September and she needs a good book to keep her warm at night ;) and NOBODY does it like Jamie does :P

This is my all time favorite book and was my first time travel romance. I have read this book so many times that I've lost count! For those that haven't read the series yet, be warned...the sequels are not quick reads and can be intimidating when you first look at them. They are at least twice the size of Outlander. The series almost takes up a full shelf in my library! I would love to share this book with Brooke and Allison. My fellow book buddies. Req. 3 copies please.

Although I've heard of this series, I haven't read any of the books yet. I blame my tower of TBR books, my TBR e-books on my laptop, etc.. I would love to win a copy for myself and my best friend so we don't have to share. :)

From the minute I opened the first page of the Outlander I have been hooked. I've read every book and Jamie is also my favorite all time Hero..sigh...Talk about a tortured hero. I actually tear up at the thought of the series ending and that Jamie and Claire are older now. Okay, I have to stop right there. I love history as well and these books are packed with it. I'd love to share this book with my daughter because she's history lover as well and I know she'll be crazy about Jamie and Claire too.

Hi, Wow what an awesome giveaway!! I'm a fairly new reader, just started reading for the first time in my life in Aug 09 at the age of 36. I haven't heard about the book yet. I have a lot of past down books and plus all the ones I've purchased and there's so much to choose from out there!! But I'd love a copy for me, My Mom who is now retired and reads a lot and My Sister in law Linda who is a homemaker and loves to read, her kids are all out of the house now. The only other person I share books with is my best friend Tina, But she doesn't always have time to read the books I loan her, she's a working Mom of a 4yr old and is separated from her husband now. So I'd like 4 but may only need 3. It will be like our own little book club. I hope we can keep it going!!! That would be so much fun!! Thanks for the opportunity!


Shirley,  December 4, 2010 at 3:20 AM  

I've never read this book or series. My 5 SIL's and I are very close, on my husbands side they were a big family of 6 brother's,
a couple of us have lost our husbands, but we mean even more to each other since then and we all love to read. I'm not sure why we haven't read this book, especially when it's said to be so great. Now I have to read it!!! We do read a lot of historical but are up for anything!! I'd need 6 but if 5 is tops I can always buy my copy. So thanks so much for the contest!!

I have so wanted to read this series, but haven't had the time. I have picked up used copies of the books at yard sales, but the only copy of OUTLANDER I have found is a ratty mass market paperback. I'll need a magnifying glass to read it. We have been renovating our house and hopefully by this winter, I'll be able to curl up with these books and something warm to drink. I am really looking forward to it.
I would like two copies. One for myself and one for my former coworker who is an avid reader. She has done many nice things for me and I would like to return the favor with a book I know she will enjoy.

Thank you for spreading the joy of the season and making this book available to so many people.

I would absolutely love to win a copy of this book. It is my type of genre but honestly I have not read it yet because I have an extremely needy toddler and have not had much time to myself lately. I have started reading again in the last 2 months and this is exactly my style. I would like to win 2 copies. One for me and one for my best friend because we always read the same books and then chat about them on the phone for days afterwards. If you only have one left I would love to win that and then my best friend can read it when I am done. Thanks for the chance. I follow.

Hey...Happy Holidays : ) Thank you for a terrific giveaway!!! Before I post the rest of my comment, let me make sure my invisible force field is in place--OK--there we go! I have yet to read "Outlander", but it is definitely on my wish list. I truly love reading, I always have, and I always will. However, for many years I worked 40 hours plus each week while caring for my family, my home and a group of rescue/abuse animals. As my mother became more ill and less able to care for herself, my reading time became nonexistent. Mom is gone, my job is gone, and what's left are a few good friends and my cat-children. I would love to win 2 copies of "Outlander", one for myself, and one for a dear friend. My friend has stuck by me through some very tough times, and she encourages my interest in books and writing. I think that she would be tickled pink that I mentioned her and that she might win a great book : ) Thanks again!

JoAnna December 4, 2010 at 4:39 PM  

Wow what an awesome giveaway! I have not read Outlander. I used to read a lot when I was younger. But I had stopped reading for several years. I started reading again almost 2 years now. And I have been reading paranormal romance and haven't branched out into other genres. I would love to win a copy to share with my girlfriends Krissy and Melissa. We all share this obsession and our books with each other.

thanks for the giveaway.

Tore December 4, 2010 at 7:40 PM  

I am a follower and email subscriber. I have never read the book because I have never heard about it but I would love to read it. I would love to win 3 books one for me, one for my friend, Terry and one for Lucretia. Please enter me in contest.

Jules@OneBookShy December 4, 2010 at 10:41 PM  

This is BY FAR my FAVORITE book (and series) EVER. I am like you in that I have read this book several times! I call the hubby "my Red Jamie" and we used a variation of their blood/wedding vow in ours (minus the blood part of course :) This is my "comfort book" that I like to read when I want to feel better!

I would very much love to win a copy of this book for myself as I loaned my first tattered and torn copy out and haven't received it back yet, if I ever will at this point.

I'd like a copy for my Aunt Lola as she is very curious about this story after hearing me recite line after line from it.

Aunt Jeanne would love a copy of her own as she was the first to borrow my much used book. She fell in love with Jamie as much as I did.

My best friend Becky needs a copy so she can get lost in Claire and Jamie's love story and forget her woes in the real world.

My sister-in-law Cindy could really use a copy as she still hasn't read the book, but just about knows the entire story through me.

We are in the process of starting a book club amongst ourselves and this would be an outstanding first read for us all to delve into together and discuss at length!

Thank you so much for the chance to win a new copy for myself and these lovely ladies who need a Jamie and Claire fix or introduction..

I haven't read it even though I have so many friends who tell me the series is amazing. Most of my friends are HUGE readers--I have two friends in mind, immediately, who would love to read it. I would like 1-2 books (I could loan my book out too).

Modokker December 6, 2010 at 7:15 PM  

Hi i have not read this book. I keep hearing about it here and there though and that it's awesome. I am a GFC follower and there is always a link on my blog to this blog as it's one of my favs. I would like 3 copies if possible one for myself and if it's as great as some people say it will be most likely on my keeper shelf and then one for my friend at work who also reads and we share books and recommendations and one for the library i use so that others can read it as well.

I hope I'm not too late. I have shared Outlander with my sis-in-law (who I would love to win a special edition for). We were at a flea market and found a copy. I said, "You should read this.." and she became a huge fan.

Then she gave her copy to my 2 nieces-they loved it!

My friend was not a big reader--until I gave her a copy. I got her hooked.

My other friend I refound on Facebook after 20 years. She, my friend, my sister in law, my nieces and I started messaging each other WITHIN SECONDS on all things "Outlandish".

It's a universal book. We all can't wait till its a movie!! So, I don't want to be greedy, but I will find good, loving homes for ALL 5 copies 1 for me, 1 for Terry (sis-in-law), 1 for Laurie (20 year friend), 1 for Cynthia (ex-non-reader), 1 for Jenny (my niece)...maybe I will give up my copy for Becky (my other niece)What the heck! I got them addicted, I should sacrifice!

Thank you for the chance!

I haven't read this series yet as I haven't had a chance to purchase it (and we don't have at our library here). I've heard a ton of good things about it though and have wanted to pick it up. I'd love to get 3 copies, 1 for me, 1 for grandma, and 1 to donate to our library so everyone here can get a chance to read it.

I haven't read this book but it sounds very good since you've read it more than once. I do that too but not very often. I would like 2 copies. One would be for me of course LOL and the other for my Mom who is an avid reader.

throuthehaze December 17, 2010 at 9:15 PM  

Awesome giveaway! I would love 2 for me and one for my mom who I think would also enjoy this series :)

I imagine all of your copies are gone by now, but thought it might be worth a shot. I have not read this book yet! I guess I have.t read it yet because I wasn't really aware of it until recently ( you are shocked now aren't you?). I would love 2 copies. 1 for me and 1 for my friend Lisa. If I am selected, I would love to have them mailed to Lisa, and then she could mail me my copy, as she is in the US and I am in Canada. OR actually, we could just share a copy! If you mailed her a copy (in the US), she could mail it to me, after she reads it! That might be the best way to do it, that way you can share with more readers!

I have NOT read this yet, because even though I have heard about the greatness of the book, I always end up with another book in my hands first.
I would love to win an extra copy for my mom, who loves the series and is the first one to tell me about it, but she does not own a copy.
I would like to win 2 total.

Danielle Gorman December 28, 2010 at 12:16 PM  

I have not read this book and I would love the chance to do so. To be honest I actually never heard of this book until I saw the giveaway you were having. After that I started seeing this book everywhere and hearing nothing but amazing things about it. Seems like it is everyones favorite. So I too would like to read it. I have to know why it is so good. If I were to win a copy I would share a copy with my aunt. She is the only other person that I know that reads romance and we both have the same tastes so I know she would probably love it too. If I were to win I would gladly take just one. That way you can offer the other copy to someone who like me has not read it. I can just share my copy with my aunt.

the girls in the office, Melanie, Dee and Joann and myself all love reading romance we would love to have a chance to read this

Liz Velez January 21, 2011 at 10:49 AM  

I couldn't agree more with you. As I already own the first four novels in the series (even though I've only read "Outlander" as yet), as well as "The Exile," the graphic novel, I'm not here for the contest, but just to give my two cents worth. If you haven't read this yet, do yourself a favor and stick it on the top of your TBR pile. You WILL NOT be sorry. You will fall in love with Jamie and Claire (especially Jamie). The only way that this novel could get any better was if it was made into a movie and ONLY if they kept to the storyline. Then again, as with most novels made into movies, it would probably lose a lot in translation from novel to screenplay. But one can hope.

Mary January 31, 2011 at 10:38 AM  

I just found your blog and don't know if this giveaway is still going on but I would love to win two copies. One for me and one for my mom. My mom loves romance even more than I do...ok, maybe not but just as much then. lol

I would share my copy with her but she breaks the spine in her books and I don't. I know, weird, right? But I keep all the books I get and put them on my shelf and try not to break the spine while reading it if I can help it.

I am a new follower and I sure hope this is giveaway is not over. I have heard great things about this series and would love to get 4 copies. One for my best friend who loves romance novels, two for my facebook friends so we can discuss it, and one for me ;)

I look forward to reading it and I will be starting a blog and will be sure to discuss it and promote it as well.

I share all my reads with my family.I only need one copy.It will be read by many.

Amy March 2, 2011 at 12:47 AM  

I haven't read Outlander yet, because I'm a bit worried I won't like it because it's a historical. However, I would love to be proven wrong. I'll share the story with my best friend, Sally.

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 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 and gift cards on this rewards site)
