Lucky Leprechaun Giveaway Hop

Welcome to Disgruntled Bear! I'm Kate, the author of the Ganzfield books and one of the editors at Spencer Hill Press. I usually post about writing and publishing YA books... or I show funny YouTube videos. It's a mixed bag.

For the giveaway, I'm offering you a choice of a signed copy of my book Minder (shipped to a US mailing address) or a PDF file of the enhanced version (emailed anywhere on the planet) as part of this giveaway.

To enter, just leave a comment below by midnight EDT Sunday, March 20th. The comment can be anything (clean) that you want; feel free to just post, "I want to read MINDER!"

That's all you need to do.  Easy, huh?

Want extra chances? I'll give you +1 chance if you're a follower and +1 for every link to this website that you post on Facebook, Twitter, your blog, etc. (please include the links with your comment). I'll also give you +1 chance if you "like" Ganzfield on Facebook:

The next stop on the blog hop is: Snarky Mamma
The complete list can be found here:

Thanks for stopping by!

So what's this Minder all about? Well...

Sixteen-year-old Maddie Dunn is special, but she needs to figure out how to use her new abilities before somebody else gets hurt. Ganzfield is a secret training facility full of people like her, but it's not exactly a nurturing place.
Every social interaction carries the threat of mind-control.
A stray thought can burn a building to the ground.
And people's nightmares don't always stay in their own heads.
But it's still better than New Jersey, especially once she meets the man of her dreams…
