E: Extra Karou day! Dreams of Gods and Monsters GIVEAWAY #AtoZChallenge

Congratulations to the winner, SoSheri!
EE stands for ANOTHER DAY OF KAROU AND LAINI TAYLOR! What does that mean?? Presents! *giggles like a two-year old* I’m giving away a FREE ereader copy of Dreams of Gods and Monsters!!dreams_of_gods_and_monsters

By way of a staggering deception, Karou has taken control of the chimaera rebellion and is intent on steering its course away from dead-end vengeance. The future rests on her, if there can even be a future for the chimaera in war-ravaged Eretz.

Common enemy, common cause.

When Jael’s brutal seraph army trespasses into the human world, the unthinkable becomes essential, and Karou and Akiva must ally their enemy armies against the threat. It is a twisted version of their long-ago dream, and they begin to hope that it might forge a way forward for their people.

And, perhaps, for themselves. Toward a new way of living, and maybe even love.

But there are bigger threats than Jael in the offing. A vicious queen is hunting Akiva, and, in the skies of Eretz … something is happening. Massive stains are spreading like bruises from horizon to horizon; the great winged stormhunters are gathering as if summoned, ceaselessly circling, and a deep sense of wrong pervades the world.

What power can bruise the sky?

From the streets of Rome to the caves of the Kirin and beyond, humans, chimaera and seraphim will fight, strive, love, and die in an epic theater that transcends good and evil, right and wrong, friend and enemy.

At the very barriers of space and time, what do gods and monsters dream of? And does anything else matter?

Here’s how you can win your free ereader copy:

The third book, Dreams of Gods and Monsters, releases next week. And stay tuned for tomorrow…My spidey senses tell me a giveaway is around the corner…Days_of_Blood_and_starlightArt student and monster’s apprentice Karou finally has the answers she has always sought. She knows who she is—and what she is. But with this knowledge comes another truth she would give anything to undo: She loved the enemy and he betrayed her, and a world suffered for it.

In this stunning sequel to the highly acclaimed Daughter of Smoke & Bone, Karou must decide how far she’ll go to avenge her people. Filled with heartbreak and beauty, secrets and impossible choices, Days of Blood & Starlight finds Karou and Akiva on opposing sides as an age-old war stirs back to life.

While Karou and her allies build a monstrous army in a land of dust and starlight, Akiva wages a different sort of battle: a battle for redemption. For hope.

But can any hope be salvaged from the ashes of their broken dream?

B: Best Chocolate Pudding Recipe. Ever. #AtoZChallenge

BI believe chocolate is one of the major food groups (see that food pyramid, or whatever new shape the FDA says is healthy for us to squeeze ourselves into? Yeah–that shape is chocolate. All other food groups fit inside it).

Without chocolate, life (and therefore writing and art and all things lovely and good) would not be possible. That said, I’m going to give you the best chocolate pudding recipe I’ve found.

Yes, this counts as a B because…look at this picture:
