My First Giveaway

I received a copy of Blue Diablo from the lovely Ann Aguirre in April for becoming her 300th follower on Twitter and enjoyed every minute of it. So when I saw an autographed copy on sale at the Borders down the street, I decided to pick it up and host my first giveaway.

Corine Solomon is a handler—when she touches an object she instantly knows its history and its future. Using her ability, she can find the missing—which is why people never stop trying to find her. Like her ex-boyfriend Chance, who needs Corine’s gift to find someone dear to them both. But the search proves dangerous as it leads them into a strange world of demons and sorcerers, ghosts and witchcraft, zombies—and black magic...

  3. Hi Sara! Congrats on your first giveaway (I just finished my first yesterday). My psychic power would have to be empath. I wouldn't want to read minds, but reading emotions would be very helpful.

  8. I'm such a dork and thought if I found a list of psychic powers it would make it easier. Nope. So many I didn't even realize fell under that heading! I'd have to say something to do with divining things from cooking (flour, salt, etc. not like fortune cookies) or weather/nature (clouds, wind during storms, etc.) though opening a random book and reading a passage to get your prediction is pretty cool, too.

    Oh, and I'm a follower.

    That sounds like a great book, I'm glad you liked it!

  9. AHHH. I forgot to talk about my psychic power. I want to read minds

    Sorry for the double post, Sara.


  10. I'd love to have a copy of Blue Diablo, so I can compare it to her Grimspace series.
    If I could have a psychic power I would like it to be discerning the future with visions, so I could win the lottery by knowing the numbers in advance! I really want to open a bookstore and movie theater in my town, because they don't have those things. :)

  11. Hmm, if I could have a psychic power, I'd love to be able to look into the future . . . not long term, but short term future.

    I'm following now thanks to a link from another blog that helped me find you!!

  12. I'd love to read this. I guess if I had a psychic power I'd like to be able to track down missing and stolen children by touching something they own.


  13. I think I would like to be able to read minds
