Magic And Mythology

Happy Friday Everyone,

****GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATED. A very special thank you to Josephine Angelini for supplying the prize!****

Yay! It's another giveaway day! This is a special treat, not just for you, but for me, too. This novel I have read twice and would read again and again, no problem. Today's giveaway novel is Josephine Angelini's Starcrossed:

Can Helen and Lucas break the pattern of bloodshed the Fates and the Furies have repeated throughout the centuries? Or will they suffer the same fate as the original Helen and Paris and other scions before them?

This is a story based off the Helen Of Troy/Trojan War mythology. I own this book and believe me, you don't want to miss out.

Here's how you can win this awesome novel (please read the following rules carefully):

One entry per person. I will close giveaway at 10:30 p.m. Central time.  **Edit 12/09/2011 10:23 a.m. Central Time:  Confirmed with Josephine, the contest is open Internationally, so USA and all countries welcome may enter, just follow the rules and get your entries in BEFORE 10:30 p.m. Central Time :-)

You may choose one of two ways to enter:

1.  If you want to enter by leaving a comment on this post:  please include a first name and email address. If you do not include an email address you will be disqualified (need a way to contact the winner).

2.  If you don't want to leave an email address in the comment section, you may send me an email to bethany.averie@yahoo.com (Those of you have other email addresses of mine, please only send giveaway entries to bethany.averie@yahoo.com ).

Have fun!

Have A Fabulous Friday!

I missed the last contest; didn't want to miss this one.
This HAS been a good Friday so far. My favorite show had it's new episode on this morning, and I caught the mouse that's been living in my bathroom for weeks. His new home is in the garage. My husband would have a fit if he knew, but I don't kill anything.
You have a great Friday too, Bethany. roni42@roadrunner.com

Hi Bethany! I don't live in the U.S.A. Can I enter the giveaway if I live abroad?

Bethany said...


Oh my gosh, you did miss it! I thought you had entered and I just checked the entries for Wednesday and sure enough, your name wasn't there. Well, definitely have you entered for this one.

Glad you caught the mouse--I'm sure your husband will just LOVE his new garage companion LOL

You're entered! Thank you for dropping by :-)

Hello! I love having new readers/guests come by. I will check with Josephine and see if it's open to everyone or just USA, that's something I forgot to check up on. Thank you for reminding me.

Send me an email at bethany.averie@yahoo.com so that I can enter if Josephine says it's open to everyone.

Thank you for dropping by :-)

Looks like a great read and one of those books I'd read a million times. Plus it has Helen of Troy so I would certainly read it.
