    Thanks for setting all of this up. It’s really impressive the amount of work you’ve put into it.

    I’m a bit of an internet goober. One of my books–Scary Mary is permanently free to everyone, everywhere. I wasn’t sure how this worked so entered it in your promotion. If anyone really wants to read it, check out I have links to where to get it on Amazon, B&N, and Smashwords.

    I’ll be giving away free copies of the sequel Stalking Shadows which is listed above. Sorry for this little bit of self-promotion, Elle. I really didn’t know how this would work, and when I saw someone wanted Scary Mary, I figured I better speak up.


    • Elle says:

      That’s fine! What we can do is when the winners are announced for the Scary Mary title, you can contact the winners and offer them Book 2 if you want. :)

    • Theresa Z says:

      The new Scary Mary cover is awesome, I have owned this book for a while but haven’t read it yet, now I am moving it to the top, looks good!! I have to say I do judge a book by it’s cover sometimes! Wish I wasn’t that way!


      • Elle says:

        I’m a total sucker for a good cover. Or a good cereal box.

        • Karen says:

          I agree, a book cover can definitely hook you before even knowing what the book is about. I know this can be very deceptive, but it’s true. If I see a cover I like or find interesting, I am alot more likely to look and see what the book is about to consider reading it.

          • Elle says:

            Speaking of covers, I just got 3 books of mine in the mail today and I am blown away by how great they look, especially Reckless and Clash of the Otherworlds 3. Wow. I am so proud of myself!! lol xoxo Elle

      • S.A. Hunter says:

        Thanks, Elle! That’s sounds perfect.

        @Teresa Z, I plan to get a new awesome cover for the sequel Stalking Shadows, but haven’t mustered the resources yet. Hope you like Scary Mary!

  8. Elle,
    This is a wonderful contest. I thank you very much for the chance to win even one of these amazing books. I wish there was just an all button to hoard them all lol. This has been shared on my page and I will keep sharing it. I have no idea where you found the time to organize this around your crazy writing schedule. It is an amazing opportunity for everyone involved. Thank you!

  9. Jerica Enriquez says:

    Wow this is such a great idea!!! I’ve been looking for new books to read and this a great way to see if they spark my interest!! ( Although all books catch my eye, being the bookworm I am!) So excited and wish good luck to everyone who enters!!

  10. April says:

    OMG, not only did I signed up to try to win some free books, but I filled up my Amazon wish list, too. There were some incredible sounding books here. Can’t wait to read them. Thanks for this, Elle. You may have helped me find some new favorite authors.

  11. Theresa Z says:

    I entered, I love to support Indie authors!! I have actually met quite a few now and love that there is a way to get more authors published out there!! I have a slight back up on books right now but love your idea of promoting them Elle!! It’s how I found your books!

    I entered but didn’t realize the choice of book type…. (sorry, long day of travel) but I can do Kindle, pdf, and Smashwords.

    Thanks for all the work you put into that spreadsheet!!


    • Elle says:

      I love hearing this stuff! Indies need the power of the people (readers) behind them to succeed. Thanks for being one of those people!! :)

  13. Shel Delisle says:

    Thanks for everything you’ve done on this, Elle. Happy Anniversary! :)

  14. Rhea says:

    Amazing idea..just reading the premise to some of the books has already gotten me interested in some new authors. Just an FYI..some of the books are free through Amazon right now. Just wanted you to know. Hope you are having an amazing New Year!

    • Elle says:

      Yes, and any authors who are offering up a a book that’s already free might also give winners the next in series. It’s up to them. Glad you’re finding books that look good!

  15. Ashley W says:

    Thanks Elle! There were a lot of amazing books on there. I’m excited to see what I get!

  18. Misty Dies says:

    I agree with a previous commenter. Even if I don’t win one, I’ve found a few that I’m definitely going to check out. I saved them on a wish list. Last contest, there was one book that I really wanted but the thrifty part of me decided to wait until the contest was over to see if I won it. I didn’t and then couldn’t find the list and couldn’t remember the title. I wasn’t taking any chances this time.

  19. Sibel Hodge says:

    Massive thanks and hugs for setting this contest up, Elle! :) xx

  20. This is such an incredible giveaway! I shared it on my blog:

    Thank you soo much! There are a lot of books I would love to read :)

  24. Hey, Ellie. I love your event – so many books to choose from! I would like to be considered for the next event, if possible. I write YA paranormal romance/urban fiction and YA scifi. My debut novel, Forged by Greed (book one in The Forged Greed) is out, and this year I have three more books scheduled for publishing. So give me a shout, if you are interested in adding me to your indie author list –
    Thank you :-)

    • Elle says:

      Great! Just stay in touch with my Facebook and website. I’ll make announcements there. I don’t have a mailing list for authors (although I probably should!) xoxo Elle

  25. erinf1 says:

  26. Theresa Z says:

    Wow!! Thank you so much for the giveaway!! I came home to a full mailbox today, can’t wait to get reading all these wonderful new authors!! Thank you Elle for sponsoring this giveaway!


  27. Amira says:

    Thank you so much for the giveaway! So far I have won one book ;3 But I was wondering, has all the emails for the winner been sent out already? or is it till tonight at midnight?
    Thanks a bunch


    • Elle says:

      Every author is in charge of sending out their own emails, so they should be trickling out over the next few days. I’ll send out a reminder email to all the authors involved in a few days just to be sure. So happy you won at least one!! :)
