Birthday Not-Celebration Giveaway!

So, today, April 28th, is my birthday, and I'm not really celebrating.

Don't get me wrong--I have nothing against birthdays. Birthdays are cool. Turning 56 is a little yawnnnnnn... but mostly, I'm just not doing anything in particular, because, well, me.

For instance, my friend John is coming over tonight for a BBQ and to help me out in the garden because my twisted knee is still, you know, twisted. We'll hang out, eat yummy food, and watch a movie. But it doesn't have anything to do with my birthday. We would have done it anyway.

And the closest I came to getting myself a present was to spend money redoing my driveway. Yes, it is distinctly possible I suck at this. (pictures of driveway to follow)

Which is why the closest I am going to come to an actual celebration of my birthday is by giving away stuff to y'all. Just because that's the way I roll. I asked on Facebook if I should do a giveaway with a VEILED MAGIC theme, or a WICKEDLY POWERFUL theme, or one focused on the upcoming first Rider book, DANGEROUSLY CHARMING
and it was a tie between Veiled Magic and Dangerously Charming. (Thanks. Jeez.)

So here is the prize pack:

Birthday giveaway!
 The first few pieces of Dangerously Charming swag, including a notebook and a postcard magnet, plus another notebook and a tote bag for Veiled Magic, and a broom pen just because.

In case you were wondering what I wanted for my birthday (I know you were), I'd really love to get a few more reviews for Veiled Magic and Wickedly Powerful. So if you've read them, pretty please? Let everyone else know that you liked them?

And now, happy my birthday to you!

    1. Sadly, I'm not giving away the book itself, just a notebook with the cover on it. But you can buy it for only $4.99 :-)

  2. I have not read Veiled Magic but want to! I am excited to see the Baba Yaga books continue in any which way! My wonderful library has ordered Wickedly Powerful after I requested that they do so and as soon as it comes in, I'll read/review it!!!!!!

    1. The Riders were already in the Baba Yaga books...now they get stories of their own. (Don't worry, the Baba Yagas will show up too.)

  7. I'm happy anytime an author I enjoy reading gets to continue a series or do a great side read of the supporting characters.

    BTW I haven't observed, celebrated or acknowledged a birthday in over 35 years. Family members just quietly happen to just send me money at that time of the year.

  8. Happy Birthday, Deborah! I know the driveway seems a "not so sexy" gift, but it counts. I once gave myself solar screens on my house for Mother's Day. :D I hope it's a great day for you, and I'm in the middle of Wickedly Powerful - will review when I'm finished reading. :)

    1. To be honest, the driveway didn't have anything to do with my birthday either. It just happened to get done the day before. And I hope you enjoy Wickedly Powerful!

  10. Enjoy your birthday! I was not particularly thrilled with birthdays until I lost someone who fought valiantly to reach each one he could. Now I appreciate them and party the entire month! (May) Enjoy the afternoon in the garden. Celebrate with a nice glass, or two, of a really good wine.
