The prize is a 30$ Amazon GC that has this bookworm salivating at the thought of all those luscious, wonderful books (that I missed reading during the past year and the countless years before) can be bought with this dough! Keep reading and get a chance of your own to win.
(Actually there are 2 contests, and I would have loved to enter both but alas time constraints (and to a certain extent pregnancy brain!) prevents me from doing so. But all of you out there, jump in for both!)
Here, verbatim, is the contest that wonderful author Kate Rothwell is sponsoring :

Have I got a Deal for You
So now I'm sort of stymied about how to Flog my Books.
How about you help me?
I'll send you any one of my books. Even the out-of-print one by Kate (Somebody Wonderful)--You then write a review and put it in your blog or somewhere online. You hate the book, well, I'll survive. And you'll be put in a pool to win a gift certificate ($30) at Barnes and Noble or Amazon (updated to add Amazon because I'm thinking I might put this in my blog there. Heh) or Samhain, your choice.
The only book not included in this offer is Taming Him.
If you put this offer on someone's site or your own, show me and I'll put you in a drawing for everyone's favorite, a THIRTY DOLLARS! gift certificate for Barnes and Noble, Amazon, OR Samhain, your choice.
That's not so complex, right?
Here's the deal (repetition is good)
1. Get a free book by Kate and or Summer and write and post something about it ("I loved/hated this book by Kate and/or Summer. You should/shouldn't buy it and read it because_____. Don't ask me to send my copy because this one happens to be an ebook and we don't share our ebooks.") be put in a drawing pool for a THIRTY DOLLAR GIFT CERTICATE.
2. Post this offer on your site or maybe on another site (as long as it's not spammish because I don't want to get in trouble. This is not a chain letter.) Send me a link to your post and be put into yet another drawing pool for another THIRTY DOLLAR GIFT CERTIFICATE.
Do both and be put in both pools.
There. That's sixty dollars I was going to spend elsewhere.
UPDATED: Forgot the end date. Contest ends be JUNE 19. That's the day Revealing Skills comes out in print. Updates will be added as I realize mistakes were made.
Here're the books you can review
by Kate Rothwell (both are print books)
Somebody to Love
by Summer Devon-- only ebooks, although I do have one meh paper copy of Learning Charity. Revealing Skills will be out in print--but the day the book is released is the day the contest ends so...um, no, only ebooks unless you pick up a copy of Taming Him or, maybe, if you beg me prettily, I'll send you Taming Him. But you must be eloquent.
at Ellora's Cave:
...now why did I think I had more Summer books out? This is interesting. Am I missing something? Grey cells. Just yesterday I swore to someone I had seven Summer books. A dragon one just got accepted at Samhain.
I did forget a Kate book. It's a peculiar ebook. That's here.
