Once Upon A Time Blog Hop w Giveaway


This blog hop is all about the fairy tales! They are usually the first books one start out reading when younger (Beauty and the BeastCinderella, Snow White, etc.) and even when we grow older they are still a huge part of our reading life.
Fairy tale re-telling’s are in most all genres and they are especially big right now (Anyone watched that Snow White and the Huntsmen movie? Or Beauty and the Beast TV show?). You can find YA, Historical, Paranormal Romance, even Erotica, all of their sub-genres and more that are a version of a past fairy tale. This hop is in honor of them—because we all love a good fairly tale every once and a while!

Does this sound WONDERFUL!!! 🙂 YES!!! 🙂 We have some fantastic giveaways! So lemme show ya that too 🙂

 **Grand Prize!**

 Thanks to Natalie-Nicole there is a grand prize giveaway of a $100 Amazon Gift-Card!

Here’s the other stops you should check out as well. 🙂

<br><a href=”http://www.fmbpromotions.com/2012/10/sign-up-once-upon-blog-hop-giveaway-hop.html” target=”_blank” border=”0″><img src=”http://i757.photobucket.com/albums/xx219/mcanderson11/OTB.png” width=”170″ height=”220″ /></a>


So now that you can see some other stops with awesome giveaways, lemme tell you about mine 🙂

I had a hard time chosing just one, because basically all fantasy and paranormal books have some element of some kind of fairy tale. BUT, I have landed on two. hehehe one, is really considered a modern day fairy tale, and the other is my own opinion. 🙂 So lemme tell you what I’ve picked…

Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West (The Wicked Years, #1)Pale Demon (The Hollows, #9)


















I chose Wicked and Pale Demon… Wicked because, come on, who didn’t love the Wizard of Oz. It’s a whole different side of what I loved as a kid. And Pale Demon, or THE WHOLE HOLLOWS SERIES because to me, Rachel is like the princess, who happens to be a witch, Tink is her totally awesome, foul-mouthed pixie side kick, Al is like the big bad guy, who at some times isn’t even a bad guy, and Trent is the elf, that face it, he’s hot and cool! 🙂 This has been one of my favorite series EVER! and to me, this is my adult fairy tale 🙂

So here’s the deal. For my giveaway, I’ll offer TWO different things… 

  • FOR US… I will offer a copy of Wicked and A SIGNED COPY of Pale Demon. Yep, I got Ms. Kim’s John Hancock 🙂
  • FOR INTERNATIONAL: I will offer a $10 (or around that amount) book of choice. Sorry, international shipping is SO expensive these days. 
  • I haven’t decided if I will only choose one winner or both, so GO FORTH AND COMMENT

To enter: all you have to do is tell me your favorite fairy tale-either an original, or a modern day- and if you are international or US in a nice comment.   Then I totally recommend you go and see everyone else’s stops!!! The blog tour is for the whole week, so you have some time 🙂

I really hope you guys enjoyed today! I was so excited to be a part of this hop!! 🙂 I wish you all extra good luck and happy reading! Later Gators!!
