Midsummer's Eve Giveaway Hop June 21 - 24


Welcome to my corner of the Midsummer's Eve Giveaway Hop. This hop will run from June 21st at starting at Midnight through Friday June 24 at Midnight. There are over 200 blogs participating and you have yourself to win some fabulous prizes! Thank you to our hosts I Am A Reader Not A Writer. Take a moment to browse around and see all we have to offer, then you can move on to the next participating blog using the linky below. ENJOY!

Here at Immortality and Beyond, you will be entered to win a $10 Amazon Gift Card and I will also be giving away a copy of Dares And Dreams. That means we will have 2 lucky winners.

Lannie Spenser just lost her father unexpectedly. When the mother she has never met arrives the day of the funeral, Lannie is introduced to a world she never knew existed. Overwhelmed with the fact that she was born a witch that will come into her full powers on her twenty first birthday, Lannie also learns that her Mom, Selene, is a Vamp-Witch. Now that she knows what she is to become, Selene encourages her to accept immortality and become half vampire to save herself from a Vampire King. The King hunts her, hoping to be the one to make her immortal, as only Lannie can give him the power that will help control, and rule all of the creatures of the night.

As Lannie tries to embrace it all, she finds Ash. When both of them dream of the same little blonde boy, Ash is led to Northeast Harbor, Maine to help protect her from the Vampire King. Ash vows to protect Lannie, never expecting to fall in love with her. When an unexpected visitor shows up to the bar that Lannie works at, Ash fears she will find out that he has a secret of his own.

How To Enter:

To Enter simply follow this blog, and leave me a comment with your email letting me know what you love about the Paranormal Genre. If you're an old follower, in a separate comment so it gets it's own number let me know you're an old follower for an extra entry.

All winners will be chosen using Random.org and the winners will be announced June 25.  Good luck and Happy Hopping! Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful Daddy's out there! Hope you all had a great day!

I like to read paranormal if it is well written because it allows the author to use all their imagination to come up with interesting ideas and actions not possible or believable in standard fiction.

Thanks for the giveaway.

I was following before this hop, however I wouldn't really call myself an old follower since I haven't been following anyone over a month. GFC following as Jenn Donnelly

I love the paranormal genre because there's a certain amount of I guess you'd say world editing involved to bring these unknown elements into our world. You never know what to expect, each writer perceives legends differently or edits them to fit their own story and that element of the unexpected I think is what makes the genre great.

Spaz said...

Thanks for the giveaway and chance to win! I guess my favorite thing about the paranormal is the inherent mystery. The creatures (vampires, witches, etc.) or abilities (telepathy, telekenesis, etc.) make for a character that in at least some ways are not human and thus unrelatable. But at the same time, they are usually very human, too. I think it's interesting to see how different authors reconcile these to aspects in what they write.
