In honor of surpassing 100 followers, and to thank you all for joining us on this Epic Adventure, we’re having a Giveaway.

*cue clapping, confetti, champagne corks, fanfare, trumpets, and flying monkeys*

Sorry, but I just adore flying monkeys, and since they put me in charge of this soiree I get to choose how we celebrate.

I’d love to be able to award a flying monkey to the winner of our giveaway but they’re rather hard to ship. Sure, they could fly themselves, but they aren’t the best at following directions. Limited attention span, you know.

So, in lieu of flying monkeys (and hopefully much better) we are giving away a signed copy of my fantasy novel First of Her Kind as well as (hold onto your hats, and your monkeys) a coupon for Pre-Order/Advance Order of fellow TADA author Rachel O’Laughlin’s book Coldness of Marek due out in August.

*cue more fanfare, trumpets, sparkly dancers*

As with everything, we need to have some rules, so here they are:

The Giveaway will run from Now (yes, right this moment) until next Wednesday, May 29th. Since the purpose of doing this is to thank our followers, you will need to already follow or sign up to follow There and Draft Again.

  • Leave a comment signifying that you’re a follower and are entering.
  • Come back on the 29th to find out if you’ve won. We’ll post it in the comments section. Winner will be chosen at random.
  • How much simpler can this be, right?
  • Winners will 72 hours to claim their prize or a new winner will be chosen.

Here’s what you could win:

A signed paperback copy of First of Her Kind ~ A Darkness & Light Novel, Book One

Everyone, it seems, wants to dictate what Ciara does with her life: Serve the Goddess, destroy the Goddess, do as you promised your aunt. All Ciara wants is to keep the two magics she possesses from ripping her apart.
 And that won’t be easy.
 Not only are they in complete opposition to each other, blood ties pull her in divergent directions as well. And then there’s Bolin, the man sworn to protect her. There’s no denying the growing attraction between them, but is it Ciara he wants? Or her power?
 None of which will matter if Ciara can’t overcome her fear and learn to use her gifts. No one knows the depths of the ancient power she possesses, or what will happen if it manages to escape her control.
 Will she lose herself entirely? Or be forever trapped between darkness & light?

A pre-order for a copy of Coldness of Marek (due out in August)

A rebel and an idealist, Trzl is certain that no one loves the kingdom of Serengard as much as she does. She spends her days and nights organizing the movement to bring down the Orion monarchy, to destroy the hold of the nobles and their strict rules that have bound the people to archaic tradition.
But then a young man loyal to the crown starts falling for her, forcing her to question everything that makes her believe in the inherent evil of the nobility. As the rebellion escalates, she is caught between endangering the trust of her rebel cohorts and destroying the life of a man who might be inching his way into her heart.
Trzl’s plans turn to nightmares when her choice leaves her a single mother at nineteen. Without a friend to her name, she takes refuge near the chilling Cliffs of Marek in the hopes that she will be left alone with her fatherless son. But she has a few too many demons. A man whom she once trusted takes her captive, throwing her back into the political mess she helped create. Now at the mercy of someone she never wanted for an enemy, she must play her own hand of betrayal to save herself and her son.

    Well I definitely follow this blog. Congrats on the follower count. 🙂

  2. I’m not a huge fan of flying monkeys. It feels like they are trying to pass us in the evolutionary chain, and I had weird flying monkey dreams as a child after Oz.
    So, I’d MUCH prefer the books, please! I am a follower.
