Double Jeopardy Giveaway!

*cue the ooohhhs and aaahhhs*

Yes, my friends it's double or nothing for this giveaway. Here's the deal:

I published my novel, Iwishacana/Acanawishi and my short story and poetry anthology: Everblossom on smashwords, lulu, bn, and kindle.


*throws confetti and dances a little jig* I know you guys are giving me the evil glare wondering why I didn't mention it earlier, but I was still fixing quite a few things on all four of those sites. It was pretty crazy. 

Oh, sorry, getting way off topic here. I'll post about my experiences publishing on those four sites later. Back to the giveaway. 

It's pretty simple: You want my eBook? Just put your name, email address, and which book you want and I'll give you the coupon for Smashwords. Easy, simple, done. In exchange for the free book, I would like for you to post a review of it on your blog or on smashwords. That's all I ask.

Now the first hundred followers, yes you have to be a follower, to request my book get the free coupon for the completely free book of mine. 

So let's go over the rules again for clarity:

1. You must be a follower.

2. I would like a review of my book on your blog, if you have one, but if you can't then a review on smashwords would be lovely. 

3. You are only getting ONE of the books above. You cannot request for both Everblossom and Iwishacana/Acanawishi.

So now that's out of the way, here are the blurbs for my books. 

An anthology that will quench your thirst for more than the ordinary.

Everblossom is a journey through poems and short stories that may seem ordinary on the surface but dig a little deeper and the world not only shifts. It changes.

From the author who brought you Iwishacana/Acanawishi, she now brings you a dash of everything from dark fantasy to the paranormal to even romance. So prepare yourself to delve into the three stages of the flower from bud to blossom then back to seed, you'll go through them all with a whole new perspective on what it all truly means.


Where rules are meant to be broken
     Anissa is constantly on the run from the police and can't seem to stay out of trouble.

Secrets are meant to be kept
Until Anissa hides Florence in her bedroom and her mother finds out. There's only one thing left to do: Send her to Juvenile Cop Camp to erase all of her crimes on her record.

And everything is not what it seems
There's only one problem: Anissa is innocent.
Welcome to Iwishacana.
