Friday to Friday contest

I mentioned in my post two weeks ago that soon I'd be running contests on my blog. Bet you thought I'd forgotten about those, didn't you? ;-). Well, never fear, free things are finally here! Today marks the start of the first of five contests I'll be running from now until June 13th. Why until June 13th? Because that's my birthday, so consider these contests an early birthday celebration from me to you!
So, without further ado, here's Contest Number One...  

I've mentioned before that I'm a big fan of Vicki Pettersson's, and she happens to be an awesome person in addition to being a kick ass author. Well, Vicki's fourth book in the Sign of the Zodiac series, CITY OF SOULS, comes out June 30th, but one lucky reader won't have to wait that long. Vicki has kindly offered to ship a signed, Advanced Reading Copy of CITY OF SOULS to whoever wins my contest. Yes, Vicki will ship internationally.
Before we get to details, want a little info on CITY OF SOULS? Here's the summary from the back cover:
In Sin City, a little girl suffers from a strange and terrible malady. If she dies, the Light will die along with her.
Warrior, avenger, Joanna Archer has survived countless otherworldly terrors—and has found her rightful place among the agents battling the all-pervasive evil of Shadow . . . even as she struggles against the darkness within herself.
A war is raging for Las Vegas—a city without a heart—one that catapults Joanna into a new world hidden from mortal sight. In this lethally seductive alternate dimension the lines blur between good and evil, love and hate, and here lies the last hope for the Light. But Joanna's price of admission is a piece of her own soul—and the odds of her escaping are slim . . . to none.
And here are some comments from these little-known authors (wink, wink) about the Sign of the Zodiac series:
"Passion and intrigue, heartbreak and victory--THE TOUCH OF TWILIGHT offers an intricate plot populated with complex characters. Nothing is predictable in Vicki Pettersson's newest novel . . . except the need to read more." --Melissa Marr

"Pettersson's paranormal world is as original as it is compelling. The action comes fast and furious. Like Las Vegas itself, this is an adventure that'll keep you up all night." --Kelley Armstrong

"From the one-damn-thing-after-another school of unputdownable books, The Scent of Shadows rockets into the air and explodes like fireworks, with nonstop bursts of action and imagination." --Diana Gabaldon

"The Scent of Shadows came out of nowhere and slapped me silly. . You're going to love this." --Kim Harrison

"...Read at your own risk -it'll keep you up past your bedtime." --Charlaine Harris
And now, the rules. They're easy. Email me at frostlight1 AT yahoo DOT com with the subject line of Contest 1, and I will enter you into the contest. Winner will be chosen by randomizer. If you want to increase your chances for winning, mention this contest on your blog and in your email to me, make sure you include the link where you blogged about it. Everyone who blogs and emails me the link will get their entry counted twice. 
Contest starts now and will close Friday, May 22nd, at 11:59 pm, EDT. Good luck!
