A Carnie in the Hand is Worth Two in the HEY LOOK, A CARNIEPUNK ARC GIVEAWAY!

Posted by: Regan Summers

Hey, you.

Yeah, you.

Do you like fantasy?

Do you like urban fantasy?

What about clowns?

No, wait – don’t run away! There aren’t any clowns, I promise.*

There, that’s better. I have for you, oh fearless lover of urban fantasy, a unique opportunity. Have you ever wanted to read the authors listed below? What about getting your hands on a collection of kick-ass short stories by them – before it hits the sales shelves? Yeah, that’s what I thought. Since I am also, secretly, the seventh author in that list, I was lucky enough to get my hands on an ARC (advance reading copy – not quite the final version, but still a beauty of a book) of the CARNIEPUNK anthology before it goes on sale. This trade paperback is loaded to the furry gills with stories of magic, love, corndogs, trickery, mayhem and - most importantly - carnies. And I want to give it to you.**

·                Rachel Caine
·                Jennifer Estep
·                Seanan McGuire
·                Rob Thurman
·                Delilah Dawson
·                Kelly Gay
·                Hillary Jacques
·                Kevin Hearne
·                Mark Henry
·                Jackie Kessler
·                Kelly Meding
·                Allison Pang
·                Nicole Peeler

This is your opportunity. Enter at your peril! Enter with dreams of sunshine and rainbows, whee! The giveaway Rafflecopter will be open for ten days, after which I’ll post the winner in the comments section and tweet the announcement. If I don’t hear from the winner within three days, I’ll select another. Please read the terms and conditions. Good luck!***

** Yes, YOU! I want you to win so badly that I've given you loads of chances to enter.

  1. Clowns are sooo creepy. Yikes! And I read the Jennifer Estep story - really awesome! I can't wait to read the rest of the anthology.

  2. Replies
    1. Some of the stories are straight-up crazy, Simon!

  3. Lobster and crab. They look like aliens and I don't understand how anyone would want to eat something they have to use a pair of pliers on. :D

    1. But aliens are so delicious! Except I can't eat crab after reading a Haruki Murakami short story about "snow crab". *dies inside a little more*

  4. Spiders creep the hell out of me. Especially the small ones that you seem to always find around your bed just as you are about to turn off the light. @CathyInCanada

    1. So...uhm...if I don't see them, does that mean they're already in my bed? O.0

  5. Roaches. I have always had this deadly fear of them since I was a kid and watched a movie where they swarmed a woman. Ugh, even typing it creeps me out.

  6. Anything with pincers. Because I know every time it moves, it's getting closer to eating me.

  7. I was a carny and carnies are for the most part nice, well-adjusted people but there were some creeps...

    I look forward to reading this collection...

    Michael C.

    1. There are creeps everywhere. The summer I spent working at carnivals, I met some excellent people.

  8. We have a winner! Lisa Arnseth, please email me at with your mailing address.

    Thanks to everyone who entered and shared the contest.

  9. Yay! Thank you so much. I'm very excited to read this! :-)
