GIVEAWAY!! Vote for Karou, win a book!

It's time, it's time! It's finally time! Remember how I told you I was going to be advocating Karou in the Tournament of Heroines? Well she's fighting Mara from The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer right now!

PLEASE CLICK HERE and go vote. I'd like it if you voted for Karou (I know I certainly think she deserves to win) but if you think Mara is the better heroine, vote for her!

IF YOU DO VOTE FOR KAROU you have a chance to win a copy of The Daughter of Smoke and Bone!

Here's how! I'm giving away TWO copies if Karou wins! It's OPEN INTERNATIONAL (to anywhere TBD ships)! You can enter to win both different ways:

Book #1 will be given away to someone who votes for Karou and leaves a comment. Leave a comment at the voting post that says "No one defeats the daughter of smoke and bone!" Your comment must contain that EXACT PHRASE to be entered into the contest. Be sure to add a little something extra too, but above all remember to BE NICE!

Book #2 will be given away to someone who tweets any and all (tweet as much as you'd like!) of the following tweets:
  • I voted for Karou in the #HeroineTourney! Vote #TeamKarou and win a copy of DAUGHTER OF SMOKE & BONE by @LainiTaylor!
  • No one defeats the daughter of smoke and bone! Vote #TeamKarou & enter to win a copy of The book! #HeroineTourney
  • In fact, you can tweet anything that has the hashtags #TeamKarou and #HeroineTourney so long as you link to either this post or the voting post(and are nice. Mara-bashing tweeters will be disqualified! Be logical, not mean.)! You can @Enna_Isilee or @LainiTaylor if you'd like, but that's not required
  • I'll DOUBLE your entries if you change your twitter icon to this image
But wait! There's more! I'll add an extra prize of a mystery prize pack of books (good ones!) to anyone who blogs about voting for Team Karou! Leave a link in the comments!

Remember, I'll give away all 3 prizes if Karou wins, so spread the word! I'll give away 1 of them no matter what, but I won't tell you which, so participate in all! I'll give away the prize pack only if at least 4 blogs post, otherwise I'll save it for next round ('cause we'll win!). I'll be contacting the twitter winner via twitter, but since I'm not requesting that you put your e-mail in your comment (in fact, please don't!) what I'm going to do is list three names on my blog on Saturday morning, the first person to e-mail me gets it! Understand? I'll be doing this EVERY TIME Karou competes, so let's keep her winning!

You only have 24 hours starting now! When this timer runs out, the contest and voting ENDS!

To whom it may concern: this is in case anyone is offended by what I wrote in the "Why you should vote for Karou instead of Mara" section. Isn't the whole point of that book wondering whether or not Mara is sane? I was not trying to be rude or offensive at all. But the section is "Why should you vote for Karou instead of Mara" and I feel like I can't be honest to either character unless I say what I've said. It's just my opinion, you don't have to agree. But please know that I mean no offense.


  1. Just voted!
    I haven't had the pleasure of reading either book yet, but still rooting for the daughter of smoke & bone ;D

    Sweet giveaway, I'd twitter too if I had an acct~

  2. Hey Enna. I commented on the voting page before I saw this post, so I hope you'll forgive me and still enter me for the 1st one (because I didn't include the exact phrase).

    But I did Tweet, which is . . .!/cc9309/status/147556837598834688

    You really turned it around for me, your arguement was FLAWLESS and now I'm just itching to 'meet' her.

  3. Cass, it'd be one thing if you were some random stranger, but you're CASS! My Karou Konvert! (Yes, with a K. I went there.) I'll count you for the first one!

  4. I voted for Karou. (as buddyt)

    Thanks for the giveaway and for opening it to worldwide entries.

  16. I voted for Karou before I saw your post. :)



  17. You would make an awesome lawyer/cheerleader if ever the world would need one! Great job with Karou. I haven't read DoSaB or UoMD and had no other interests than the arguments posted by you and Casey on the tourney. You said all the right things AND inspired me to stop *thinking* about reading DoSaB and just get it. Today will be spent hunting for Karou thanks to you :-) Congrats on the win and can't wait for round two. *hopefully by then I'll have read the book and will be able to promote the heroine with passion!


Thank you so much for commenting! I read each and every one.
