Darkness Embraced - Giveaway.

I'm doing a giveaway of a signed paperback copy of Darkness Embraced: A Rosso Lussuria Vampire Novel. I stated in my previous post that I'd be doing the giveaway on Facebook, but have recently discovered you're actually not supposed to do giveaways there. Strange, I know, but ah well. It's just as easy to do it here. :)

So, here's how this works: At the end of this post I'll post a question. In order to enter the giveaway, comment with an answer (and your name, if you're posting as anonymous). A winner will be chosen in a random drawing (based on entry, not answer to the question). I'm going to let this giveaway run for a few of days (maybe a week) and will announce the winner in a separate post. Note: If you don't see a post announcing a winner, then the giveaway is still a go and open to entries.

In keeping with the nature of my previous post -- If you could willfully choose to be any kind of were-animal, what would you be and why?

***Notice***

As of May, since I've received so many entries for this giveaway -- I thought I'd offer up a second book and extend this contest. :) Though the first book giveaway has officially closed, all those who previously entered (aside from the previous winner) and any new entries will be entered into the new drawing that I will perform on the weekend of May 14th. I'll announce the winner in the comments section of this post.

  1. Answer: My choice is simple; were cat. As a cat lover, and follower of the Shifters series, that's my choice.

  2. If I could be a were-animal I'd choose to change into a hawk. I would love to glide through the air with my super senses at work. Oh, to feel such power...

  4. I would choose a were-jaguar. To me they are the ultimate predator and they work alone. A beautiful creature as well.

  5. Wow hard choice but I think I'd have to go with werewolf as I feel more closely connected to the wolf than other animals ;0).

  6. Winter, thank you for having a give away! =) I am excited to see what happens next when Bloody Claws comes out in January (Too far away still).

    At first, I was going to say some sort of were-cat. Then I got to thinking, so I am going to choose wolves. They are so loyal to their packs in the wild, that is how I view myself with family and friends. They tend to stick close to home, they are creative, intelligent, and will endure hardship with such a strong sense of will and a timeless beauty, I find it hard to describe.

    (Bet you thought I would pick a bunny!! That would be cool though..watching a deadly cute and fuzzy rabbit with claws and razor sharp fangs....carrots beware!!)

  7. Wow I have so many different choices for different reasons running thru my head. I guess I love cats but I would want to be a wolf. Loyal protective loving and deadly all in one fluffy package. I would be rubbed and caressed all day and get to RUN at night with the wind in my fur...great!!!

  8. Gee, that's a tough one. I guess I would say a squirrel because they always seems so busy and happy (and sometimes a little agitated) and have such wonderful interactions with their extended squirrelly family members. Now everybody knows why I wander around my 10 acre walnut orchard with binoculars in my hands!

  10. I'd have to keep it traditional; a Werewolf. I love how they are powerful and graceful and loyal to their pack and partner for life (well wolves are any way).
    It may be a lame pick, but it is what I am sticking to!

  14. I think I would be a crow. They are ubiquitous, thus it would be easy to blend in, and smart. Here in Japan they are one of the Gods' messengers.

  15. Wereshark. Brings whole new meaning to getting a bite to eat at the beach.

  16. Werebear, maybe a polar. Their strong talented animals that get to have arctic foxes following them around. Plus who in their right minds would mess with the world’s largest land predator.

  19. A Were-Leopard. Why? I could be part of the Pard that Anita Blake Vampire Hunter is Nimir-Ra of. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else if I were a Were-animal. Anita is the best.

  21. I have to go back to the weredolphin comment because it just dawned on me that I'd be up sh*t creek if I was on land when I turned...LMFAO!

    BEST OF LUCK EVERYONE!!!!

  22. And why because im lame and missed that part is because they are soft and purr and have big teeth.

  23. I would be a wolf. They are stealthy, fierce, beautiful and smart. They also mate for life. And Winter, when you posted that test on Facebook I was a wolf first and a wild dog second.
