Four books, four authors, four weeks of contests! Indie publisher 1889 Labs is hosting blog tour for the month of May, and for their tour they’ll be giving away loads of awesome stuff – eBooks, paperbacks, Amazon gift vouchers, VIP tickets for their upcoming releases and, best of all, a Kindle!
1889 Labs is the publisher of the zombie love anthology Hungry for You by A.M. Harte. If you haven’t heard of it, you should check it out. You can read my review here, as well as my interview with the author. Hungry for You is one of the books up for grabs in tour, as well as:
Typhoon by MCM
Bears, Recycling and Confusing Time Paradoxes by Greg X. Graves
Intern with the Vampire by Kit Iwasaki
Every week there will be mini giveaways for one of these books, as well a wider giveaway of a $10 Amazon gift voucher and an 1889 Labs paperback of your choice. Keep a close eye on the 1889 Labs blog for details on how and where to enter.
On 9 May Violin in a Void will host a giveaway of Bears, Recycling and Confusing Time Paradoxes, with a guest post by the author Greg X. Graves. By leaving a comment on that post, you will be entered into the giveaway for a copy of Greg’s eBook, and you’ll stand a chance to win that week’s $10 Amazon voucher and 1889 Labs paperback.
As mentioned, there are plenty more prizes, and loads of ways to enter, starting with something as simple and easy as a comment on one of 1889 Labs blog posts in May. More details from their site:
