Celebrating!

What exactly are we celebrating?  Three things.  One - I've over 500 Followers!  Considering my off again on again relationship with this blog, that's pretty impressive.  Two - I just received my copies of TOUCH OF POWER.  (author perk!)


To celebrate, I'm giving away 5 copies of TOUCH OF POWER.  Just leave a comment to this post, and I'll pick winners at random.  The give away is open until midnight my time (EST) on Black Friday (that's Friday, November 25th for my international readers :)  This is open to everyone with a mailing address.  Please also leave an email address so I can contact you with the news.


And three - it's Friday - that's always a good reason for a celebration :)

  47. Congrats on receiving the books!!!

    I can't wait until I get my copy of Touch of Power. It's been on preorder for about a month now. It's supposed to get to my house the day before my family and I leave to go visit one of your friends (My aunt and cousins). I hope to be able to read Touch of Power on the way to Elizabethtown and talk to my cousin Chris about the book.

    About Touch of Power:
    I've read the excerpt of Touch of Power that you put up and I cannot WAIT until I get my copy in a month. It really will be exciting to read about something like that, especially with me trying to get into the medical field. I'm really excited for this book!

    Keep up the good work, Ms. Snyder! I can't wait to read the next installment of one of my favorite authors.

  178. WOW! I suspected there might be some enthusiasm for TOUCH OF POWER, but 174 comments in...half a day?? WOW!

    Thanks for all the congrats and comments. And I read through them all and have a few in return.

    Katie - I did not make fun at you in Greensburg - I was kidding around, trying to make a joke! Badly it seems. Sorry.

    Eilatan - The Australian edition is coming out the same time as the UK and US editions - so you don't need to order an international copy :) I should have AU cover art to share with everyone.

    Stephanie - I don't think I'll write a series about Zitora Cowan, but I do think she needs a short story so everyone knows what happened to her.

  183. Hi Maria,

    Time is flying by. I'm so excited for a new book and what a great way to celebrate! I figure entering a contest doesn't break the Christmas rule Desirae and I have. No matter the outcome congratulations and can't wait to read Touch of Power!

    ReplyDelete
  184. Of course you deserve this many followers! Your stuff is amazing, and that includes this blog. It's fun to get little snippets of your life when you've got the time!

    I'd be lying if I said I didn't really want to win this contest. ;) I've been waiting (or trying to wait) very patiently for ToP to come out. And of course, I'm watching your tour schedule to get a chance to see you again. Whatever the outcome, thanks for doing this contest. You're always awesome!

I just finished reading outside in and im so very ready for more Snydery goodness :) The study trilogy was the bomb (I made my dad read poison study not long ago and he enjoyed it lol) and the glass trilogy.. wow!!!!! Loved the twist of the romance aspect, was kind of shocking but in a good way :)
