Lucky Leprechaun Giveaway Hop!

Want to win some great books? Well, grab your four leaf clovers & gather together the luck of the Irish so you can win one of the great books I have up for grabs!

Giveaway #1

The first book is a really awesome self help book called Shift; 13 Exercises to Make You Who You Want to Be by Takumi Yamazaki.

It’s not that you’re lazy, and it’s not that you lack motivation. No—you have plenty of motivation, but it always seems to fade away just when you need it. The problem is not that you don’t have motivation, it’s that that motivation doesn’t stick around long enough. Shift takes knowledge and inspiration from motivation specialists and distills it into something easy to understand. Thirteen exercises and seventeen techniques illustrate points to help you take the steps to keep, bring back, or find the motivation you need to make the shift into who you want to be. A different take to your average business book, Shift is a full of amusing illustrations that bring the narrative to life and practical exercises that readers can use to grab a hold of that motivation to do what they want and become who they want to be.

Giveaway #2

The second offering is an intriguing indie read called Circle of Dishonor by Gwen Mayo.

Obsessed with finding the Knights of the Golden Circle, a secret society responsible for her brother's death, former Pinkerton operative Nessa Donnelly assumed his identity and followed his killers to Lexington. The trail ended there, and fourteen years have gone by. When local prostitute Belle Brezing turns to her for help, Nessa is immersed in a murder case that threatens to expose all of her secrets. She is dealing with more than murder. The KGC is active again in Kentucky and bodies are piling up. If Nessa doesn't find the killer fast, she stands to lose everything-maybe even her life.

Book Giveaway #3 & 4

(Two winners will receive the following ebooks)

Book #4

Book number 3 is an ebook giveaway (so the lucky winner will get their book right away). It's Night & Chaos (The Deva Chronicles) by Naomi Clark! (This book will be a PDF.)

Ryan McCarthy fled Applied Paranormal Theory and Tactics, her father, and her lover six years ago, desperate to build life away from the weird science and supernatural experiments of her childhood. But everything she hoped to escape comes back with a vengeance when she’s kidnapped and tortured by a possessed APTT employee out for revenge on the man responsible for his possession: Ryan’s father.

Now, reunited with the lover she abandoned, Ryan is forced back into a world of danger and darkness she no longer understands, pursued by enemies with powers she can’t fathom. But Ryan’s not entirely powerless herself. She’ll have to use every trick she knows – as well as the mystic gift she hates – to stay ahead of those enemies. And that will be easier said than done.

Book #4

Last but not least is another ebook giveaway by author James Hutchings, who has taken the idea of Twitter to a whole new level by creating a whole book full of stories... all of which fit within 140 characters! (This book will be an epub.)

Thirty mostly humorous stories, including science fiction, fantasy, horror and romance. Each story is less than 140 characters long (the length of a Twitter tweet).
