Book Lover's Holiday Giveaway Hop

Disgruntled Bear is part of this ginormous (more than 250 participating) giveaway hop. The next stop is at the blog of Michelle Madow, whose book, Remembrance, looks all kinds of awesome!*
*And I hope she sends me a signed copy for saying so. 
But first...

I'm giving away a prize pack (open internationally) that includes:

An early copy (signed) of the new edition of Minder... 

... a Spencer Hill Press tote bag (ooh, stylish!), and a bunch of SWAG, including bookmarks, guitar picks, stickers--and maybe a candy cane or something, in honor of the holidays.

To enter, become a follower here at Disgruntled Bear and post a comment below. Write anything (clean) you want--"Happy Holidays," "I hope I win," "Kneel before Zod!"--whatever. I'll use to pick the winner and announce it on December 7th.

Easy, right? 

If you're a first-timer here and are wondering about this Minder book, it's the first book of the Ganzfield series, and #5, Operative, will be released next March: 

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…

Best YA Series of the Year 
"Clever and creative...this book sucked me in and would not let me go--not that I would have wanted it to." – Escape Between The Pages

A Reading Teen "What to Read This Summer" Pick
"Absolutely flawless!" – Reading Teen 

A Reader's Choice Awards Top 5 pick for "BEST YA SERIES OF 2010," "BEST YA BOOK" (Minder), "BEST PARANORMAL ROMANCE" (Adversary), "BEST SECONDARY CHARACTER" (Trevor), and "BEST COUPLE" (Maddie and Trevor) – Mindful Musings
