CONTEST CONTEST CONTEST!

And what a contest! If you hear something slouching towards Bethlehem, fear not! It’s just that there’s a near-seismic launching of FOUR LEAGUE BOOKS TOMORROW!

And because this is such a big event, and because I’m running ANOTHER BIG EVENT over at the League of Reluctant Adults, YA Week!, I thought I’d run a contest THIS week, here.

First of all, let me show you what’s up for grabs . . .

The lucky winner of this contest receives NOT ONE . . .NOT TWO . . . NOT THREE! . . . BUT FOUR BOOKS!

Yes, FOUR BOOKS!

In no particular order, here is the prize…

First off, we have Mark Henry’s new release, Battle of the Network Zombies!

Next, we have my AMAZING critique partner, Diana Rowland’s, Blood of the Demon! I’ve read this one, it’s HAWT!

Third up is Stacia Kane’s Demon Possessed!

And, finally, last but not least, Anton Strout’s Dead Matter!

All of these novels launch tomorrow, February 23rd. And I’ll send all four books directly to the winner of this contest.

To enter yourself into the running, just answer the following question in comments: “Which would you rather be, a hot, fashionable, zombie socialite; a demon summoner who gets hawt sex with her side of Demon Lord; the actual head of a demon family, who gets to fraternize with other heads of demon families (Greyson! Greyson!); or a super secret, super agent for the Department of Extraordinary Affairs?”

In other words, I think I’m asking would you rather BE the supernatural? Or the human who gets to fraternize with supernaturals?

Answer that question in comments in as much depth as you would like, and that’ll put you in the running to win these four books. I’ll choose a winner FRIDAY February 26th at noon, randomly, and announce the winner here.

In the meantime, you can see me get up to all sorts of shenanigans over at the League. Because it’s YA week! And I have some REALLY GOOD ideas on how I, Nicole Peeler, can enter into the YA world with a bang. Literally.

You know you want to see this in action . . .

  1. All of the above! Seriously, that really is the question isn't it? I'd rather be the human that gets to fraternize with the superhumans. If I were superhuman, perhaps fraternizing with humans wouldn't be all that exciting. Not that I would know. Not hardly.

    Great contest! Hope I win! Hazaah!

  2. While this was truly a difficult decision to make, I'd have to say I truly enjoy being human, BUT, being supernatural would definitely make things more interesting. And, since we all know how much I love the spotlight, fashion, and all things zombie – My final answer will be that I would definitely choose to be a hot, fashionable zombie socialite.

    As such, I would (of course) find a way to rub elbows (amongst other things) with the Demon Lords/heads of households in order to secure my rightful place as ruler of the world – or at least Shreveport – and hope that there would be only a slight, yet not very thorough investigation by the super secret super agents of the Department Extraordinary Affairs (though my affairs *would* be extraordinary).

    😉

  3. Don't let the name throw you off. I would not choose to be the zombie socialite. The fashion alone would kill me – again.

    I love a good mystery and there is a definite spark to bashing skulls with a retractable bat. Also (as most of my friends could attest to) I am as familiar with the receiving end of blunt force trauma as Simon Canderous. So I would have to go with agent in the Department of Extraordinary Affairs. Go Team Fogie!

  4. If I choose "demon summoner who gets hawt sex with her side of Demon Lord", do I also get to kick ass? 🙂

    If so, that is my choice. It is Monday and I need to wield some powers. So picture a long haired blonde, 5 foot 6 inch, curvy demon summoner. Add a sword and, hmmmm, a whip! Insert dramatic entrance, billowing fog, the shimmer of dew on her sword as she… er… splashes through the rain soaked floor of the castle foyer (do castles have foyers?). She turns, no scratch that. She pivots (oh yah) and draws her sword on the shadowed figure emerging through the mist/fog/smoke. He is there. She lowers her blade and smiles.

    Whew, is it hot in here. By the way. The prize package… could only be compared to a literacy orgasm!

  5. Talk about hard questions (I know, I know… That's what she said) Which one would I rather be?

    While I love Amanda in all her zombiefied glory, I do not think I can pull it off because I am not a fashionista; though maybe my cynicism could help, right? But newp. That excuse for the Demon summoner does not sound bad at all, I must admit [hot demons are truly a force of nature and hard to resist]. And while being a Demon Lord/head of the family might sound incredibly tempting, I rather be his hirl, if yah get what I mean [Greyson's at that *wink wink*]. This leads to being the human that get to fraternize and deal with the supernatural [and enjoy the supernatural as well =P]. And c'mon, what would be cooler than go around beating zombies with a stick/bat? Nothing, right? So, GO D.E.A.!!!! =P

    So yeah… I would be the human fraternizing with supernaturals ^-^

    Btw… Can I also be a Necromancer??? =)

  6. I'd rather be the supernatural – I have a fascination with the invincible and the immortality of characters so would love to know how it felt to have those qualities.

  7. Well that's a hard question, I guess I'd prefer being the supernatural, but I'm not sure I wanna be Undead =P SO I guess I will go with the demon, but I really doubt I have any demon potential in me lol It would sure be interesting!

    BTW I am reading Tempest Rising atm and I'm loving it =D

  8. I would want to be the demon summoner who gets hawt sex with the Demon Lord. It sounds interesting, you already promised the hawt sex and who messes with a demon summoner? Actually who'd mess with a zombie socialite either, but I have a thing against not having a heartbeat (its why I'd never make it as a vampire, spend too much time agonizing over no heartbeat), can I vote on being her friend?

    Secondary to Demon Summoner I'd be the Head of a Demon Family, but that sounds like a lot of work XD

    Lexie

  9. OH this is a hard choice! sex or power? ha ha BUT if you are making me choose one..i would say: a demon summoner who gets hawt sex with her side of Demon Lord. That sounds like a good time! ha ha

    Stacy

  10. Though I would love to be a hot zombie socialite I really don't have the wardrobe to pull it off..or the desire to eat humans..but if I do get a new wardrobe out of the deal I might consider it.

    I think being a demon summoner who gets hawt sex with her side of Demon Lord sounds good to me. I read the first book..that demon lord was super hot and can give you super hot real sex and dream sex..sounds like a win-win to me 🙂

  11. Tough call. I think I would have to go with being a super secret, super agent for the Department of Extraordinary Affairs. Just sounds like it would be so much fun and interesting and challenging. Of course they would all have their challenging moments too. I am so excited for all 4 of these releases! Yay for release week at the League.

  12. Answer: the actual head of a demon family, who gets to fraternize with other heads of demon families (Greyson! Greyson!)

    Because, hello, GREYSON!! Hot, hot, hot demon that he is. Oohh…

  13. Demon summoner. All the way.

    Hm. You know. My first instinct is to say, "Ooh, ooh! Let me be the supernatural!" But then, given the choice, I usually go with the human fraternizing with the supernatural instead.

    I think this probably says something important about me, but since it's Monday and I'm going caffeine-free, I'm not sure what that something is.

    Happy book-birthday to all four authors! Awesome job!

  14. I would like to be Supernatural. Yes. Super's always better. Supersize, Super bowl, Super Mario, Super lotto… Besides, I've done human already. Next!

    Good luck to all new release authors! The books all sound…SUPER!!

    (Oh stop it, you knew it was coming.)

    🙂

  15. Who wouldn't want to be supernatural? But at the same time, it's awfully tempting to be a super secret, super agent for the Department of Extraordinary Affarirs? And there's also the promise of hawt demon sex to take into consideration? Are you sure I can't choose "all of the above"? Hmmmmm…think I'll have to go with secret agent, mainly because James Bond makes it look so cool. 🙂

  16. Hmm I think I would want to be the human who hangs with the paranormals!

    There is something about being a secret super spy that just jumps out and bites you. But then again I am always day dreaming about the what if's and how our country would work if the zombies, werewolves, vampires and sea creatures took over LOL!!!

    Don't look at me like that, don't tell me you haven't thought about the same. Plus if I was a super spy I could get all the nitty gritty facts, like do vampires really drink blood or is that just an intimidation factor, maybe find out about the whole zombie brain sucking thing. *whispers* Between the two of us, I just think its a rumor started by them darned mutated sea creatures.

    So yeah the jet setting life a secret spy would soo fit me to a tee!

    Thanks!

    Amanda

  17. No brainer, I would do both. Come on people, be creative. Start out human. Have mind blowing, multi orgasmic, hot, and nasty demon sex. Then get turned into a zombie or whatever supernatural creature you want to hunt down and force yourself upon. Is forced turning a type of rape? I mean if I found a vamp or a zombie and forced him to turn me, would that be like rape for them? Ouch, head is hurting from thinking…

    Oh, maybe I could make a deal with the hottie demon I’m banging, get him to turn me into a demon too, and then take over the world. Hahahahaha. Bring on the pain! Not that I would do anything like that. 😛

  18. Although being supernatural is tempting, I think I'd go with the super secret, super agent for the Department of Extraordinary Affairs.

    Congrats to all four of these fantastic authors on their new releases.

  19. “Which would you rather be, a hot, fashionable, zombie socialite; a demon summoner who gets hawt sex with her side of Demon Lord; the actual head of a demon family, who gets to fraternize with other heads of demon families (Greyson! Greyson!); or a super secret, super agent for the Department of Extraordinary Affarirs?”

    Ummm, all of the above? Hey, I can multitask! I am woman! Now give me the books and no one gets hurt.

  20. I want to head the demon family — I want the POWER *he*he*he*, I, of course, want to be a very powerful deamon family head!!

  21. Good question! Hmmm… Although I wouldn't mind being either, I'd rather stay human. I mean, think about it, there's always rivalries among supernatural groups. But not humans, we can branch out. Hawt sex with the Deamon Lord, the zombie AND the super agent!

    on the other hand, Jenn W. does have a point. Demon Lord turning me into demon…

    So… the books… 😉

    entrelibros_blog(at)hotmail(dot)com

    Count me in on the giveaway only if it's international, please. Otherwise, you just got an awesome, free of charge comment 🙂

  22. Hmmm–I think I'd like to be the human that consorts with 'others' LOL I mean it would be really interesting to learn about the things that go bump in the night. Not to mention the perks that may come from having a supernatural boyfriend. And with some creatures, you could have the option of becoming one. Yeah, I'd definitly like my options open so I'll go with the human 🙂

  23. Definately the super agent for the Department of Extraordinary Affarirs. And I'd like to be able to summon my a@@-kicking demon super agent pattern for hawt sex. :-p

  24. I think I'd want to be a demon summoner who gets hawt sex with her side of Demon Lord. Yep, that sounds about right to me! 🙂

  25. A super secret, super agent for the Department of Extraordinary Affarirs. Ok say that five times fast… A super secret, super agent for the Department of Extraordinary Affarirs. A super secret, super agent for the Department of Extraordinary Affarirs. A super secret, super agent for the Department of Extraordinary Affarirs. A super secret, super agent for the Department of Extraordinary Affarirs. A super secret, super agent for the Department of Extraordinary Affarirs. Ok so maybe it isn't that hard but it surely is fun to say. Right? Maybe it's just me… But I think this is what I would choose. Although, a demon summoner who gets hawt sex with her side of Demon Lord is also very tempting…

  26. I would like to be the supernatural fratenizes with both supernatural and humans. I would also like to be the super secret, super agent for the Department of Extraordinary Affairs. So I would be the Supernatural Super Secret Super Sgent. 🙂 *giggles*

  27. Being a super secret, super agent sounds super (thanks for asking!).

    The real issue is that all that infernal frolicking doesn't come for free – now or later, you're gonna pay for it. I prefer to be the one dealing out consequences, not the other way around.

  28. I want to be the hot zombie socialite for the wardrobe. No really I would definately want to be a Supernatural creature they don't ever seem to have a problem finding a fabulous job.

  29. Geesh, I have a fricking cold, how can I decide important matters like this? I think I would like to be the head of a demon family. Geesh, I have two teens and a ten year old daughter. I feel like I have experience heading up demons. BAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  30. i think id rather be a demon summoner who gets the sex. simply because it had sex in her choice. lols. or a super secret, super agent for the Department of Extraordinary Affairs. cos ive always wanted to be a spy. hahaha.

  31. I would have to go with being the human super secret agent. I would love to know about all the supernaturals but not sure I would want to be one. But would love to win these books if the giveaway is open to Canadians.

  32. I'm still A woman, a wife and a mom so i'm gonna choose the human who gets to fraternize with supernaturals. Coz I love to be around with Humans that love me as a Human being 🙂 { sounds great huh ? ^_^)

  33. It's hard to choose but I'd want to be a demon summoner who gets hawt sex with her side of Demon Lord, oh yeah! 😀

    But I think I'd rather BE the supernatural 'cause I wanna live forever!

  34. I want to be a supernatural. In fact I'm still waiting for my superpowers to come in. Hawt supernatural sex sounds enjoyable also. I don't know about the demon thing though, you know they have such a bad rep, being demonic and all that. Even though those hawt demon COOP chicks are pretty smokin' and they look like they are having a good time (I was a closet/not so closet Lords of Acid fan in college, love that CD cover). A pointy tail would be kinda cool also. But, I think I might enjoy a bit of telekinisis – it would probably just make me more lazy than I already am, though.

    GREAT CONTEST. Ms. Peeler you rock as usual.

  35. I'm not one for being dependant so I'll have to go with the supernatural. Too many of the humans get used and abused (not in a good way) and end up dead. Demon summoning suits me best I think as fashion is so not my thing. Being the head of the family sounds very much like work…… Yep! I think a demon summoner who gets hawt sex with her side of Demon Lord sounds the most appealing.

  36. Hey, I definitel want to be one of the supernatural beings, and head of a demon family sounds cool. Think of all the mischief and mayhem that could be plotted and instgated through my family minions. Great contest!

  37. While this is a difficult decision to make, I guess I would have to go with 'a demon summoner who gets hawt sex with her side of Demon Lord'. I don't know the story behind that yet, that's reading for later this week!

  38. What? I'm already a half Klingon/Half Vulcan, an Elizabethan plague survivor who thinks she's dead, An actually dead from Consumption Victorian whore, a 16th Century Jewish Caravan Princess and a beautiful, mYysterious Russian Sp- I mean, Ballerina.

    There's also a Celtic pixie & A Gold Rush Heiress/pathological liar/ Dog Wrangler and a Samurai Warrior Chick.

    Wanna write a book about any of us, we're available for interview!

  39. I love, love, love all these responses. But I am sensing a trend in that many people are gravitating to whichever group they most want to shag.

    Y'all a bunch of horny mamajammas.

    I like it.

    Sharli, meanwhile, have no fear. The Dr. isn't just national . . . she's international. 😉 (supernational?)

    And yes, Ale, you can be a necromancer.

    Keep 'em coming, folks! You are warming the cockles of my heart.

  40. As fun as being a hot, fashionable, zombie socialite sounds (and Mark Henry makes it sound like all kinds of fun) I have to be honest and admit that I would never be Amanda. I'd end up more like Wendy, unable to resist the urge for sushi or samosas or that hot chocolate you get at the French restaurant with the cup of thick cream to spoon in. Pretty much anything that's not the flesh of some poor bastard from Auburn. This means I'd have to go around wearing adult diapers and squatting over a bucket as my zombified body rejects everything that isn't alcohol or human flesh.

    Not fun.

    Demon sex doesn't really appeal to me either, no matter how hot Stacia Kane and Diana Rowland make it sound. Let's face it, Stacia and Diana could both probably make sex with a diseased goat sound hot, that doesn't mean it would actually be fun to try in real life. Whenever the Inquisition described actual demon sex, it always sounded rather painful and nasty. Then again, there could have just been a bunch of kinky and horny old men running the Inquisition who just made all that stuff up. If they were around today, they would probably be dangling in sex chairs while they sodomized each other with Hitachi magic wands.

    So super secret super agent it is. In the grand scheme of things, I'd rather be a Human With Powerz (like Anton Strout's psychometronic Simon Canderous) or at most a part-time supernatural like a werewolf, so I could still get weekends off.

    Or better yet, a Selkie, because that's what all the cool kids like these days.

  41. I think the biggest reason I would want to 'work with' instead of 'belong to' a supernatural group is my deep standing opposition to being an outsider. To be stuck in a situation where you weren't human and had to hide from humans or were against all humans doesn't sound like my idea of a good time.

    If you are human, but get to hang out with the cool kids, you get the best of both worlds. Plus, depending on who you talk to, there's always the chance of getting changed if you decided you wanted to belong to that world.

  42. I think I would have to go with either the Demon summoner or head of the demon family. What can I say, I want the extra cool abilities, and not being able to sit on the sidelines. As much as I want to have Amanda's fashion sense, I don't think I'd cut it as a zombie. One, I really like food, and 2 i cam be clumsy…just think of all the non-heeling damage I would do. Maybe I could get some fashion tips or just go drinking with the zombies. 🙂

    Fabulous contest!!! I look forward to your interviews later this week. Your interviews always have such flare. 🙂

  43. I would rather be the demon summoner in Louisiana! I just finished Rowland's first book and she gets to pick between mysterious FBI agent and HOT Demon God! I agree with the above on Amanda's fashion sense, but I definitely couldn't stomach human flesh!

  44. Oh, I definitely want to be the secret agent! I like being human, and as long as I get cool gadgets (or spells), I'm sure I'd really enjoy that job. 😀

    (Thanks for hosting such an awesome contest!)

  45. I think I'd rather be hot, fashionable, zombie socialite, because in real life, I tend to be a zombie most days (hey, I'm a SAHM who gets little sleep) but I can't claim to be hot or fashionable.

  46. I'd have to go with the agent. I don't want to actually be supernatural, but I want to know what's going on with them. Seems only prudent to be informed.

  47. I'd definetly wanna be the demon summoner with the hot sex because…well do I even have to say? haha

    Great contest! I hope its open internationally:)

    Thanks!

  48. I think I woulod love to be the demon summoner who gets to have hawt sex with demon. Maybe the agent that investigates the supernatural. Either way I want to have hawt sex with the supernatural. 🙂

    ~Roxanne Rhoads

  49. I choose “super secret, super agent for the Department of Extraordinary Affairs” because I'd rather be the human who gets to fraternize with supernaturals and then probably get some hawt sex along the way! lol

  50. well, I think I'd rather BE the supernatural who fraternizes with humans AND supernaturals AND has cool super secret gadgets AND a closet of fashionable clothes! That's not asking too much, is it? 😉

  51. Personally I'd rather be the demon summorer. I seriously love this book. It was totally different than most books I've read and it really struck a cord with me and It rawked. I am looking forward to starting some of these other series soon.

  52. If I can't be a human with special powers (a step above regular ol' humans), I'd rather be a Supernatural. Humans, even those who associate with Supernaturals, get picked on too much. : )

  53. I'd like to remain human but would LOVE to be able to fraternize with supernaturals. Being an agent among them would be very cool. 🙂

  54. I am thinking maybe I would like to be a hot, fashionable, zombie socialite, oh no…probably a demon summoner who gets hawt sex with her side of Demon Lord…for the obvious reasons, or maybe the head of a demon family as the fraternization sounds really great, although a super secret super agent for the Department of Extraordinary Affairs sound like an awesome addition to the old resume. Ok, I clearly cannot decide, but I am definitely looking really forward to reading all of these!!

  55. I would want to be a demon summoner who gets hawt sex with her side of Demon Lord…All four of the books look amazing…I read Mark of the Demon and am thrilled to find out that the second one has come out in a relatively short time since I read the first. Thanks for such a great giveaway.

  56. Um, don't care what I do, summoner or secret agent, but yes…keep me human. I'd rather be human and have the amazingly hawt sexperience with the Supernatural. I mean let's face it…sex between supernaturals would be like sex between humans. And supposedly, the Super's are well…Super…. So, I'll be on the receiving end of all that extra superness and sexperience thank you and let it blow my little mind. And the clothes? Well, fashionable is nice and all…but um, I don't really care when it's ripped, torn, and piled on the floor. lol. However, I should probably read all four books to be fair and rethink this question after, huh?

  57. Great Contest!

    I would like to be the super secret agent that fraternizes with the supernaturals. I would like to play with the supernaturals during the day. and lay up with my supernatural at night. Yup thats my plan lol 🙂

  58. Very cool contest.

    I would want to be a super secret, super agent for the Department of Extraordinary Affairs.

    Supernaturals are all nice and well, but I like being mortal and besides being a supernatural would only give me trouble with those super secret, super agents for the Department of Extraordinary Affairs.

  59. Hello!!!

    I have all those books and I have to say to top I would be a demon summoner who gets to have hawt sex with her demon lord cause lets face it who else gets to have the hawt sex with a demon lord and when else would you get that chance!

  60. I think I would rather be a super secret, secret agent because I like the idea of being human but getting to interact with supernatural beings like zombies, demons, and demon summoners.

    Hope I win the books! 🙂

  61. I want to be a supernatural. I like the idea of having extra power, of course, I want to be able to live amongst humans hiding my secret powers but interacting with society. Hawt sex is never bad, is it?

  62. I would like to remain the human, but fraternize with the supernatural peeps, especially the hawt male ones! Cuz, I don't need to be in the hawt female ones and make them feel bad about themselves…..

    VWinship at aol dot com

  63. I think I would live to be the supernatural, such as the demon summoner that gets some demon Lord on the side! Now that sound very HAWT!

  64. I definitely would want to be the actual head of a demon family because I like to be in charge. And then getting to fraternize with other heads of demon families would just be a bonus.

  65. Definitely would rather be the super secret, super agent for the Department of Extraordinary Affairs…with fancy gadgets, secret agent wardrobe…and LOTS of fraternizing
