Alyson Noel’s The Immortals Audiobooks Giveaway


*The winners of the audiobooks have been drawn! Thanks to all those who entered. The winners are: HOLLY and PRIYA! Enjoy your listening ladies!*

Lucky ducks! I have two Alyson Noel audiobooks: Evermore and Blue Moon and I am giving them away. If you are a fan of this New York Times bestselling series then I know you will love listening to the books. Katie Schorr gives a great reading. I will draw 2 winners, one for Evermore and one for Blue Moon. The giveaway is open to residents of Canada and the U.S. only. (Sorry – not enough pennies saved for international shipping costs!) I will announce the 2 winners on August 4th.


1. To enter the draw, leave a comment below. (All you have to write is “Please enter me!” Nothing fancy). Make sure if you leave it anonymously that I have a way to contact you via email.

2. For an extra entry, blog or tweet about the giveaway and leave a link in the comments.

3. For a third entry, subscribe to my blog.

Don’t know the books? Here’s the trailer for Evermore:

Think Twilight, minus the sparkly vampire action.

Both audiobooks are published by Macmillian Audio.

Zen Monday: Picture + Poem

Been out of the habit of this the past few weeks. So here we go!


Recipe for a Fairy Glen

Before you begin,
you’ll need quiet and fading light,
(almost dusk is best)
and a whimsical frame of mind.

Sweep away
all traces of melancholy
trapped under small stones.
Scatter trees,
tall, slender-trunked and leafy.
Brush egg-blue sky between
the tallest branches.
Cover the earth with wildflowers.
Weave a path through the grass
for midnight visitors.
Dot with nooks,
hidden spots and strange treasures
in stranger places:
one flame red feather,
a snip of velvet ribbon,
something that glitters.

A whisper of wing beats
will tell you it’s ready,
rustling bluebells
say it’s time to leave the rest
to magic.

Thanks to Tricia for inspiring me with her Recipe Poetry Stretch.
