Sisters Red Giveaway

I promised a Sisters Red giveaway, many eons ago, to mark the end of NaNoWriMo. Let's ignore the fact that it's almost January and get this contest started.

The Prize: A hardback copy of Sisters Red, signed by the very funny and very gracious Jackson Pearce. In addition, because I was late with this contest, I will throw in a mystery prize to sweeten the pot. I promise the 'mystery prize' will not be my dog Hope (aka Li'l Sofaeater).

Book Summary:

Scarlett March lives to hunt the Fenris—the werewolves that took her eye when she was defending her sister Rosie from a brutal attack. Armed with a razor-sharp hatchet and blood-red cloak, Scarlett is an expert at luring and slaying the wolves. She’s determined to protect other young girls from a grisly death, and her raging heart will not rest until every single wolf is dead.

Rosie March once felt her bond with her sister was unbreakable. Owing Scarlett her life, Rosie hunts fiercely alongside her. Now Rosie dreams of a life beyond the wolves and finds herself drawn to Silas, a young woodsman who is deadly with an ax—but loving him means betraying her sister and has the potential to destroy all they’ve worked for.

How to Enter:

1. I'm going to change it up and do a random drawing this time. All you need to do is respond to this post and you'll automatically be entered into the contest. The winner will be chosen by my beagle, Lucy. How, I'm not quite sure, but I'm already working on some sort of Rube Goldberg type contraption.

2. For extra credit (and one extra contest entry), please answer the following question: You are skipping towards Grandma's house, carrying a basket full of gifts and supplies. Out of nowhere, you are attacked by a Big Bad Wolf. Using just your cloak and/or the items in your basket, how do you fight back?

3. If you're my little brother, you can't enter.

4. You must follow my blog. You could also follow me on Twitter (@LiteraryMouse), but you don't have to if you don't want to.

5. The deadline is Monday, January 10, at 9pm EST.

If you have any questions about contest rules, please leave them in the comments!

Update: The contest is closed! I'll announce the winner either tomorrow or Friday. Thanks to everyone who entered.


  1. Please enter me!

    I follow you on twitter, too:

  2. If I were attacked by a werewolf I would ninja kick him in the stomach (area) and then choke him with my cape or stuff some bread over is mouth and nose from my basket so he couldn't breathe HI-YA *karate chop*
    I totally follow your blog and twitter accounts! Thx for the giveaway ;) cubicleblindness at gmail.com

  3. I'm following on blog(BLHmistress) and twitter @BookLovershaway

    As to fighting with the big bad wolf- I would throw the cloak over the wolf and reach in to the basket and hit him with whatever I have in it including the basket.

  4. If that big bad wolf attacked, I'd throw him a goody, which would be much tastier than me. While he was devouring the sugar, I'd sprint away, but not worry about him for long. After all, he's part of the canine family, and the goodies would weaken his immune system so that he'd catch worms or some other doggy disease.

    Thanks for the contest.


  5. Please enter me!

    As for the second question, well, if *I* had packed my basket, there'd be a pistol in it. Nuff said. ;)


  6. I am a follower and would love to be entered.

    Due to my cloak being made from the elves it would render me invisible and allow for my escape.

  7. Thanks for the giveaway :) If I was attacked by a wolf I would probably run like hell. I'm lame like that. But if I must fight back, I suppose I would throw things in my basket/basket itself at him. If I happen to be carrying pastries, I shall chuck some at him. And then, run like hell.


  8. Please enter me! I've heard great things about Sisters Red.

    I pull the flame thrower hidden beneath my cloak and scorch the thing. That'll teach him to mess with me or my grandma...

    +1 I'm a blog follower and Twitter follower.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  9. Sitting at work, almost spit my drink out, you guys are hilarious!

    BTW-I'm not entering, but in response to my own question:

    You see, Grandma is a Ninja Master, so if I got attacked by a wolf, I'd whip out the nunchucks I was bringing to Granny and beat the wolf silly, then I'd pin it to a tree with some Shuriken. Cos that's how me and Granny roll.

  10. Oh, I've been wanting to read Sisters Red *forever*. I'm a blog follower and a follower on Twitter!

    If we're talking the wolf from Little Red Riding Hood, who was so anthropomorphized he could talk and wear human clothes and probably had opposable thumbs, I'd try to talk through why he wanted to attack me. Probably he has some personal issues and he's using violence as an outlet for stress. With luck, by the end of our session, the wolf would be reformed, or at least willing to leave me un-nibbled. I might even be carrying some brochures or self-help books in my basket, which I'd leave with him. On the other hand, if we're talking a non-fairytale wolf, I'd punch it in the nose, throw my cloak over its head, and run away as fast as I could!


  11. I'd love to read this book.

    Not very creative, but I'd throw the cloak over the wolves head and hit him with the basket, then run as fast as I could.
