Congratulations!

Thanks so much to everyone for stopping by the tour, entering the giveaways and spreading the word. I’m sorry there could be only five winners. If I don’t hear back from the winners within 48 hours of emailing each of them, I will select new winners and update this post.

I will also be contacting all other giveaway winners for the Authors Are Rockstars Giveaways that have ended. Those winners will be announced in the Rafflecopter forms only.

And don’t forget to stop by and see who the winners are for Jaime and Mindy’s “Kick-off Giveaways.” Links to each of their blogs are at the top of this post.


Authors Are Rockstars Tour: Winners!

Well, it may have taken just a few days, but we – and Rafflecopter – have figured out all 13 winners for the Authors Are Rockstars Tour Mega Giveaway!

Thanks so much to everyone who stopped by and entered, spread the word and who visited some – or all – of the stops on tour. There are still a few giveaways going on so be sure to check them out!

While we’d have loved for everyone who entered to get a prize we only had 13 prize packs available.

And so, without any further ado here are the winners.

Before I Wake Mini-Reading Challenge Wrap-up

The BEFORE I WAKE Mini-Reading Challenge has officially ended, which makes me just a bit sad. Mostly because there are no new Soul Screamers novels left for me to read this year. And without a reading challenge, I have no excuse to re-read the entire series once again to hold me over until WITH ALL MY SOUL releases next year.

Thank you to everyone who participated in this month’s mini-challenge. I am so glad to see just how much you all loved this installment in the series. IF I DIE was a hard act to follow, but this book was so awesome and heartbreaking it was easy to see it as its very own amazing story.

I can’t believe there were so many sign-ups for this challenge. So, thank you all for signing up and participating. New releases are not always easy to get a hold of, read and review in the month of their release, so I’m so thrilled to see just how many of you did manage to do so!

Because I had the chance to read it early and I posted my review on release date, I wasn’t as challenged by the challenge as I had been with the books each month for the Soul Screamers Reading Challenge. But I still had fun checking out your reviews and posts.

And while WITH ALL MY SOUL won’t be released until April of next year, I think I may just have to do another month-long challenge for that book, too. But before I say, “Until then!” I have some prize winners to announce….

Oh, and in case you hadn’t been aware, Rachel Vincent’s blog has moved. You can check it out HERE. And it’s awesome.

The first place winner of the $50 in books of their choice from Amazon or The Book Depository depending upon location is….

Congratulations Helene!

The second place winner of three Rachel Vincent books of their choice (which can include a Soul Screamers Volume 2 pre-order) that I will order and send to the author for signature is…

Congratulations Christina!

The third place winner of two Rachel Vincent books of their choice (which can include a Soul Screamers Volume 2 pre-order) that I will order from Amazon or The Book Depository is…

Congratulations Alaiel!

And the fourth place winner of one Rachel Vincent book of their choice (which can include a Soul Screamers Volume 2 pre-order) that I will order from Amazon or The Book Depository is…

Congratulations A Book Obsession!

Congratulations again to all the winners! I will also be notifying you today by email. And thanks again to everyone who joined this challenge and the Soul Screamers Reading Challenge before that. You are all so awesome for sharing your love of Rachel Vincent’s books and (most of her )characters.

I hope the challenge was fun and I’m sorry not everyone could win a prize. Well, except for having had the chance to read such an awesome book like BEFORE I WAKE, that is.

And for those of you who didn’t get a chance to attend the author’s BEFORE I WAKE spoiler chat, you can watch it HERE or below.

Soul Screamers Reading Challenge Wrap-up

I am actually kind of sad that the Soul Screamers Reading Challenge has ended. It was a lot of work, but it was a lot of fun and gave me a chance to re-read and get to know a series I loved already just a little bit more. And it gave me a chance to get to know a few readers and bloggers that I might not have otherwise known.

And while I’m ecstatic that BEFORE I WAKE will be out in just over a week, I’m sad that I won’t be reading a Rachel Vincent book each and every month. So, to combat that, I have started to read her SHIFTERS series and will re-read the UNBOUND books currently available when I’m done. Hopefully that will pass the time until the next UNBOUND book is available.

Yes, I’m hooked. Rachel Vincent’s writing is highly addictive. Her characters are amazing. Her plots are gripping. And her love stories are twisty-turny in all the best ways. I love the SOUL SCREAMERS series even more than I did the first – and second for some of the books – time around. And of course I am equally excited and terrified to read the final book in the series.

Anyway… I mentioned, I was going to announce the winners for the end of challenge giveaway on Tuesday. But I decided to buckle down this weekend and get everything sorted now so that I could start getting those pre-orders in as soon as possible.

I also announced the Mini Challenge Redux winners and the Month Five winners on the SSRC blog. Be sure to check them out to see if you might have won.

So, after much tabulating, organizing, confirming, checking and re-checking, I determined that there were 119 active participants in this challenge – meaning 119 of those who signed up for the challenge posted at least one review/thoughts post during the challenge. Which means – if I round up – that there are 12 copies of BEFORE I WAKE up for giveaway.

I then added up all the points for entries and extra entries for those who posted at least once, which added up to 685 entries, and I put all 685 entries into Random’s List Generator and it has spoken. Amazingly it didn’t post any duplicates, either!


Congratulations Kiara @ Goodreads, Melissa @ Goodreads, Mag @ Geek Chic, Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal, Jen @ The Midnight Book Thief, April @ Books4Juliet, The Whispering of the Pages, Kat @ KHN, Cait @ The Cait Files, Shaft @ Shaft’s Words, Jacinda @ The Reading Housewives and Debbie @ Goodreads!

You all have won a pre-order copy of BEFORE I WAKE to be ordered from Amazon or The Book Depository. Please contact me by email at fiktshun[at]gmail[dot]com to claim your prize. If you have already won a pre-order copy of BIW and wish to select a different Rachel Vincent book of your choice, including a pre-order of the SOUL SCREAMERS VOLUME TWO, which comes out in mid-November, you can do that instead.

Thank you all SO MUCH for participating in this challenge. I am so amazed by just how many people came back month after month to share their reviews and thoughts about the books! YOU all made this challenge awesome!

There were so many awesome participants who joined in the challenge who posted in one, two, three or four months of the challenge, but there were only 21 participants who posted reviews in every month of the challenge.

[EDIT: In fact there were 22 participants who posted reviews in every month of the challenge and a total of 29 people who received 10 points or more. Due to a similar name of one of the participants when typing this post, I inadvertently left them off. They have been added in, as they are also a star, and they are awesome!]

And to me, they are the STARS of this challenge and I wanted to thank them personally, here in this post.

There are also seven participants who posted frequently enough to have earned ten or more points in this challenge and participated in four of the five months of this challenge, so I wanted to spotlight them here, too.

As, to me, they are also stars!

[stextbox id=”custom” color=”ffffff” bcolor=”ffffff” bgcolor=”450B48″ image=”null”]

As I mentioned on Twitter, for each participant who posted a review for all five of the full-length books in the series during this challenge and had a review posted during each of the five months, I would pre-order them a copy of BEFORE I WAKE if they hadn’t won a prize (aside from an eBook) during this challenge. I’ve expanded that to include all 28 of the challenge stars above.

However, for the Challenge Stars that are either “Champions” or “Amazing,” if they haven’t already won a pre-order copy of BEFORE I WAKE, I will pre-order a copy of BEFORE I WAKE even if they won another prize during the challenge.

I will be announcing those winners on Tuesday. Stay tuned…

END OF UPDATE

 

I also want to thank all those who signed up at the beginning of the challenge or signed up and created a participation post. Your early support of this challenge meant SO MUCH! You have no idea.

So…

THANK YOU!!!!

Spoiler chats and one more challenge….

The IF I DIE spoiler chat is in the works and will hopefully be scheduled prior to the release of BEFORE I WAKE to avoid any spoilers for that book in the chat. Date and time to be announced soon. Stay tuned.

There will also be a BEFORE I WAKE spoiler chat later this summer. Details to come.

AND…

I will be hosting a BEFORE I WAKE reading challenge which will run from June 26th through August 1st. There will be a link-up and a giveaway. So if you just can’t wait to read BEFORE I WAKE and want to share your thoughts on, or shortly after, release date, feel free to stop back on June 26th for details.
