$50 Amazon gift card & the return of PTL Perrin

There are more mysteries in this world than you can dream of.

How did these things, these creatures get here? Who made them, or how did they evolve? Questions like these have plagued P.T.L. Perrin since childhood, and it’s only recently that she has felt the nod from our Creator to explore them in writing.

You might remember P.T.L. Perrin from awhile back on my blog. She's writing books that she would have loved reading when her family didn’t have television. Coming back to present day, she wrote the TetraSphere series as pure entertainment, and as a way to answer some of the unanswerable questions about our universe.


When Jewel Adams is abducted and taken to a place that most people don’t know exists, her friends are frantic to find her. The one alien race they thought they could count on refuses to help them. The other, the reptilians, are holding her captive. Will they harm her?

Together, the four have abilities that, when combined, can save Earth from self-destruction, but they can’t do it without Jewel.

In this exciting sequel to Terra’s Call, the four teens discover that things are not at all as they seem. There are more mysteries in this world than any of them have dreamed of, and they’re about to meet some of those mysteries head-on.

Pick up Triton’s Call, book #2 in the TetraSphere series, and let P.T.L. know if you enjoy reading it!

“Wake up!” The gravelly voice wrenches me from a sound sleep, and I sit up and rub my eyes. “Out of bed, now!” I recognize the Dracan barking orders and resist the impulse to cover my head with the blanket. What good would it do?

“What do you want, Shaula?” I ask, trying to control my shaking voice. This reptilian terrifies me. I stand up and pray he leaves soon. The trembling in my body isn’t helping me control my full bladder.

“Ah, she’s awake.” His voice sandpapers my nerves. His grin sends shivers down my spine and I shudder at his bared teeth. Does he eat humans?

“Thuban commands you to dress and be ready for transport in an hour. His daughter will be here momentarily to give you clothes. I advise you not to waste time.” He stares, the grin back on his face.

I don’t know where the courage comes from, but I answer him, “The sooner you leave, the quicker I can get ready.”


So who wants to win something?! Like our previous feature, P.T.L. Perrin and I have partnered up to give away a $50 Amazon gift card to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

Amazon gift card & Kimberlee Bastian's Element Odysseys

It's time to accept a new mission...

Back in 1997, Kimberlee Ann Bastian went to a sleepover birthday party and watched a horror movie based on a Stephen King novel. (Anybody see "IT" recently?) The very next day she began to type her first short story and knew it was her "density" (BTTF reference) to be an author.

When she isn't writing or consuming other literary worlds, she enjoys hiking, cycling, and catching up on her favorite pop culture.


Kimberlee has a love affair with American nostalgia, mythology, and endless possibilities. This melting pot of elements is what prompted the creation of her epic Element Odysseys series, starting with her debut novel, The Breedling and the City in the Garden.

A year later, it was then followed up with the second book in the series, The Breedling and the Trickster, which released last month.

For immortal soulcatcher Buck, acclimating to newfound freedom in 1934 Chicago would have been impossible if not for the selfless actions of Charlie Reese. Now separated from his mortal friend, Buck accepts a new mission: to save the Shepherdess, whose unclaimed soul will soon stand trial in his old world, Euxinus.

Buck must find the Shepherdess’ beloved, the infamous Trickster Stingy Jack, and convince him to testify on behalf of her soul. Furthermore, Buck must ensure Stingy Jack is worthy to stand as her witness. It’s no easy feat; Hades, sworn enemy of Stingy Jack, threatens to thwart Buck’s mission at every twist and turn in hopes of seizing the Shepherdess’ soul—and the secret she holds—for himself.

Set on a whirwind path that leads him on an odyssey across the American Midwest, Buck must rely on untested skills while being ever mindful of his dangerous surroundings as he prepares himself for his return to the dark, desolate realm of Euxinus.

Still curious about the author? Here's a quick Q&A about books with Kimberlee...

What inspires you to write?
The human condition and underdogs.

How long does it take you to write a book, on average?
To write the first draft, I would say, maybe a few months.

What are you working on right now?
I just started the redraft of The Breedling and the Shepherdess Book Three in the Element Odyssey Series.

What's the best writing tip you can offer?
Once your favorite spot to write, milk it for all its worth. You need to be creatively comfortable in order to be effective.

What's a book written by another author everyone should read in their lifetime?
This is incredibly hard, but I have to choose Michael Shaara’s The Killer Angels.



So who wants to win something?! Kimberlee Bastian and I have partnered up to give away a couple items - one lucky Giveaway Guy reader will win the paperback series Element Odysseys and another reader will win a $20 Amazon gift card.

Amazon gift card and "Strange Luck" by Amie Irene Winters

A world like nothing you've ever seen...

Amie Irene Winters was born and raised in California but now lives and writes in western Pennsylvania. She is the author of the award-winning Strange Luck series.

When not writing, Amie can be found hiking with her dog, baking desserts, or breaking a sweat in kickboxing class.


Strange Luck is a faced-paced adventure that pulls you into a world of imagination with twists and turns. Think Narnia meets Alice In Wonderland.

All Daisy Darling wanted was to be a writer. What she got was more than she bargained for. As it turns out, the quaint little town of Sea Salt, California houses more than adorable cottages and huge redwood trees. Beneath the coastal charm rests a strange world where wizards, fairies, time-altering portals, and dark magic looms.

A world where memories can be your greatest currency—and weapon.

A world where you can never reclaim what's been taken from you.

After stumbling into the mysterious world, Daisy’s memories begin to rapidly disintegrate, but she doesn't even know she’s losing them. As if things couldn't get any worse, Daisy learns she is the only one who can save herself.

Daisy’s very identity is at stake, but the odds aren’t in her favor. Can she discover the secret to win back her freedom before it's too late?

Still curious about the author? Here's a quick Q&A about books with Amie...

What inspires you to write?
Discovering unexpected magic in everyday life.

How long does it take you to write a book, on average?
About 1 ½ years. I try to write the whole thing in one year and then leave the rest of the time for edits and getting it ready for publication.

What are you working on right now?
After putting out 1 book a year for 3 years straight, I've decided to take a short break from writing to focus on my other hobbies like painting and playing music. I have some ideas for a psychological thriller though.

What's the best writing tip you can offer?
Love what you do. If you're finding writing too stressful, or are just not feeling it, take a break. You'd be amazed at what a little time off can do to boost creativity.

What's a book written by another author everyone should read in their lifetime?
Probably The Neverending Story by Michael Ende. Not many people know that it was a book before it was a movie. The book is so much better!!! It's an imaginative, deep, and beautiful story that is highly underrated. It's also one of the only books that made me cry at the end because it was over.



So who wants to win something?! Amie and I have partnered up to give away a couple items - one lucky Giveaway Guy reader will win the ebook Strange Luck and another reader will win a $20 Amazon gift card.

Amazon gift card and Carrie Butler's "As We Know It"

Discover new ways to share daydreams...

Carrie Butler is an award-winning author and the owner of Forward Authority full-service studio. She's also an inbound-certified marketer with a penchant for superhero socks and Firefly. I didn't know she was a marketer until I started writing this, so I may have to pick her brain as a fellow marketer.

Time away from Carrie's desk is spent playing with her rescue pup (he's cute - look for him on her site), yelling at the TV during hockey season, and indulging in target-based recreation.


A mix of thriller, suspense, and romance, As We Know It is a fictional account of a real threat.
Deep beneath the ocean, stretching hundreds of miles alongside the Pacific Northwest coastline, lies the Cascadia subduction zone—a fault on the verge of unleashing a catastrophic earthquake, thirty times more powerful than the San Andreas. Unfortunately, like most tourists, Elena Cordova is oblivious.

She’s got her own pent-up stress to deal with, a humiliating breakup that’s driven her to end her tenure as a human doormat once and for all. So, when a pickpocket makes off with the last remnant of her relationship, she takes action—only to get trapped with him when disaster strikes.

Now, if either one hopes to survive, they’ll have to get past their initial impressions and work together . . . because in fifteen minutes, half the town will be underwater.


Still curious about the author? Here's a quick Q&A about books with Carrie...

What inspires you to write?
Music, art, strangers, news, movies, books, scenery—unexpected sparks that light up the day-to-day. Whatever story they inspire is something I feel soul deep, and I want to share that with my readers. Maybe it’ll reach them on a different wavelength, maybe their experiences will shape it into something else, but we’ll both feel it on some level. That’s what keeps me writing.

How long does it take you to write a book, on average?
I wrote my debut in three months, but that was nearly seven years ago. Now that life has become a bit more hectic... almost a year (on and off). I’m still knee-deep in books, in the meantime, though! I own a graphic design company that primarily caters to authors, so the industry is never far from mind.

What are you working on right now?
I just started drafting a fantasy series I outlined (and shelved) in 2014. I haven't released many details yet, but I can say it riffs off of both historical events and fairytales...

What's the best writing tip you can offer?
Don’t let anything get in the way of good storytelling. Trends will change, processes will evolve, and those hard-and-fast rules everyone recites will phase out of existence. But readers? They’re always going to want a well-crafted literary escape.

What's a book written by another author everyone should read in their lifetime?
Oh, that’s a tough one! Rather than pin down a single book, I’ll just point everyone in Lisa Regan’s direction. If you like crime/suspense novels, her writing has the perfect ratio of grit and humanity.

Nothing says fall like pumpkin souffle - Oswald and Ari

Time to promote a local business in my area, and this one hails from a town I used to live in. I did a feature with the shop this time last year.

Oswald and Ari is an Etsy shop run by Casey in Peabody, MA. Her specialty is hand-poured unique soy candles made in small batches.

Due to its early history, Peabody is sometimes referred to locally as "Leather City" or "Tanner City," and is a major factor for the North Shore economy of Massachusetts. I lived in Peabody for awhile and it's a pretty good spot - not too far from the ocean and the city of Boston. The area's charming villages and historic seaport towns are popular with tourists, especially nearby Salem which is known for Halloween, witches, and the like.

Casey has spent the past 10 years being obsessing over candles, and finally decided to make her own. She's inspired by scents that she's always loved, and enjoys developing her own based off movies, shows, and music. She's creative to say the least.


Pictured above is the Oswald and Ari pumpkin souffle candle. Nothing says fall more than a delicious pumpkin dessert, right? Pumpkin souffle is reminiscent of the best pumpkin desserts, sweet and pumpkin-y with just the right amount of spice.

A fall favorite, this deliciously scented pumpkin soy candle embodies the essence of fall perfectly, with a savory scent that will fill your room. This candle features phthalate free fragrance oil, and natural soy wax.


My wife loves this scent, and in my opinion it's got a creamy, pleasant pumpkin scent. Not like a pumpkin being smashed in your face.

Candles are hand poured in small batches. Based on the nature of soy wax, and the handmade nature of the product, variations in color may occur, as well as texture, especially after burning. For best results allow the wax pool to fully develop during each burn.

So who wants to win it?! Casey of Oswald and Ari is graciously offering a pumpkin soufflé scented soy candle to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

Veckle pet seat cover [review]

As dog owners we have plenty to worry about. Isn't it nice to have a product that holds up and does the job?

Veckle focuses on automotive accessories, including a couple pet seat covers. At Veckle, they're committed to make your drive safe, simple, and enjoyable.

Henry on his Veckle seat cover

We take Henry hiking just about every day, and he gets wet or dirty all the time. That's why we have a beater truck that we don't care about getting dirty and stuff.

But sometimes we need to take the car, and we definitely care about keeping it looking nice. I'm the proud new owner of a Veckle pet seat cover and couldn't be happier with it.

A couple weeks ago we took Henry to the beach to meet his Vizsla meetup buddies, and naturally I grabbed the seat cover because sand gets everywhere. I'm still getting the sand out of my shoes weeks later.

Photo by Kieron Monahan

Anyhow, here's proof of our meetup. 30 Vizslas! I doubt you'll be able to spot Henry, but can you spot me? It was a lot of fun, and we're heading back in November. Yes, it will probably be cold, but the dogs love running around together.

So we head back to the car and I make sure my Veckle pet seat cover is ready to go. Sure enough, there's instantly sand and hair and stuff all over it, as you can see below.


Even with sand getting everywhere, our car was protected and remained clean! I couldn't ask for more and I definitely recommend this cover to anyone weighing their options.

We have both a compact size and mid size car, and the cover fits the backseat of both just fine. We have a truck too, but Henry likes to sit in front so the cover wouldn't get much use.

  • Side Flaps Pet Car Seat Hammock
    • Veckle car pet seat cover with the side flaps prevents your car back seat from pet scratch, dirty, pet fur and keep your car clean
  • Durable Material Pet Rider
    • Made of wear-resistant 600D Oxford cloth, PP cotton, polyester cloth, PVC waterproof coating, and EVA non-slip net
  • Waterproof and Non Slip Car Seat Cover
    • PVC waterproof coating to avoid the infiltration of pet urine into the car seat cushion
  • Easy to Install and Use
    • Just snap the buckle straps around your car's headrests to install; and tuck the soft seat anchors in the back seat
  • Multi Use for 12-month warranty
    • Excellent size of 54 x 58 inch Dog Car back seat cover fits for most Cars, Trucks and SUVs
    • Easily convert between hammock style and car bench seat cover, it prevents car seats from contamination

$50 Amazon gift card and new book release from Samie Sands!

Need a bit of romance in your next book? If you missed the previous feature of this author on my blog, then read on...

Samie Sands is a freelance graphic designer who followed her lifelong dream and uses her creativity in a new way by writing. With a degree in Media Studies and PR, Samie has already had articles published in a number of e-zines, including one of the most popular pieces at Zombie Guide Magazine.

She lives in a small seaside town in the UK, but loves to travel to gain inspiration from new places and different cultures.


On the 24th this month, author Samie Sands is releasing a new romance book, Lottie Loves.

Samie also has a three-part zombie series called AM13 Outbreak, a story of the AM-13 virus told from three different points of view. All three books in the zombie book series are available now, and you can get them free on Kindle today!

A snippet from Lottie Loves:

“Will you marry me?”

Four words I’ve waited my whole life to hear. Four words I was sure would change my life forever…and they did. Just not in the way I expected.

Finding out my extremely gorgeous rock star boyfriend was about to propose had the complete opposite effect I thought it would. Rather than catapult me into a future I’ve always wanted, it plunged me back to a past I tried to forget.

Now I can’t get him out of my head. I can’t help but wonder what could have been, how our lives would have ended up if he didn’t leave me behind, a shattered mess.

All these memories are dangerous. They’re bringing my past back to ruin my future. And worst of all, they’re taking me right back to him, my childhood sweetheart, my first love…my biggest regret.

Still curious about the author? Here are a couple interview questions with Samie from a previous feature...


What inspires you to write?
For my first book, I wrote the book I wanted to read. I'd read a lot of book based in the zombie apocalypse and I found that the characters were always very capable. It made me wonder what would happen with an ordinary person trying to survive. Leah in Lockdown is normal, girl next door type without any skills to survive. Sometimes she's flawed and she doesn't always make the right choice, but that makes her more realistic.

How long does it take you to write a book, on average?
From the first idea to the finished book, I would say it takes me about a year. I feel like I have to do a few drafts to get it right, and I need to leave a gap in between each draft so I can create some distance to help me spot plot holes. Sometimes I get so involved in the story and the characters that I forget the reader doesn't know as much as me about the worlds I've created!


So who wants to win something?! Like our last features, Samie Sands and I have partnered up to give away a $50 Amazon gift card to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

But the nightmare's not over; it stalks them both now. A mistake from her past that will not let go. But then, neither will Stephan.

Stephan’s saved her once and he's not about to let anyone, especially Lena, stand in the way of what is happening between them. But will he always be there to shield her from the danger she thought she left behind?

Amazon gift card & "When We Swing" by Kyla Ross

Friends have a way of breaking a person out of their comfort zone...

Kyla Ross is a horror, thriller, and dark fiction writer from Detroit, Michigan. She posts suspense and horror flash fiction on her blog, and is the author of a gruesome, suspenseful short story series titled A Trinity of Wicked Tales.


Kyla is also the author of an erotic thriller novel titled When We Swing, released a couple months ago in August.

Mark has always felt like an outsider. Growing up, being bullied and teased, he doubted his life would ever get better. Then he meets his new college roommate, Blain Prazzel.

Blain is the opposite of Mark, popular and oozing a sex appeal women can’t resist. Mark would kill to live in Blain’s world and gets his chance when Blain invites him and their roommate, John Motley, to a party.

After college, they go into business together and quickly become an overnight success. But when they each find their mates; their friendship is put to the test.

Will these women interfere with their bond or will they find a new adventure awaits each of them? Where darkness and light sing their own forbidden melody of taboo? Where words, when spoken, have the power to change their lives forever?

Still curious about the author? Here are a few questions and answers about books and erotica with Kyla...

What inspired you to write erotica?
I write dark fiction. However, there was a thriller brewing in my mind for months that would have only been complete if it were erotica. I also wondered what it would be like to have these ‘types’ of characters in relationships and have them ‘swing.’ It was a fun idea and I had to write about it.

Why do you think sex sells?
It’s natural. It’s something that most people engage in. It stimulates the mind (at least for me) rather I’m watching or reading it. Everything about it is fun.

How do you go about writing a good scene or chapter?
I try to make things as realistic as possible while keeping the character’s personalities and the plot in mind. Everything builds up to the twist which gets us to the jaw dropping ending.

What are your thoughts on the impact of 50 Shades of Grey?
It’s a pretty popular read. But it’s not my kind of read or movie. I can’t get into romance even though I tried. I like dark fiction so that’s what I write. When We Swing is a twisted thriller. Not a romance.

What advice would you give to an aspiring erotica writer?
Keep writing the hot stuff. There are plenty of people that love to read about it. Don’t be afraid to get a little or a lot ‘taboo’ with it. There are readers who like that also. The main goal is to finish the project and keep putting more out there. Share your smut with the world. You’ll regret it if you don’t.



So who wants to win something?! Kyla Ross and I have partnered up to give away a few items - two lucky Giveaway Guy readers will win a paperback copy of When We Swing and another reader will win a $20 Amazon gift card.

Burlap and Lace apple orchard candle [giveaway]

Fall is big here in Massachusetts with the leaves changing and crisp air. Halloween is big too with the history of witches in the area. In fact, there's an old witch house just down the road from me.

Burlap and Lace, based in Michigan, knows a thing or two about fall-themed candles though. The Etsy shop bloomed from Kailey's desire to have an area for artistic release.

Kailey has always loved scented candles, and the more scent the better. Her mission is to create candles that are both safe and healthy to burn, while maintaining a strong, beautiful scent. She fell in love with all-natural soy wax as it's toxin-free, eco-friendly, supports American agriculture, and burns beautifully with minimal to no ash. And it holds a tremendous amount of scent too.


I like the collection of fall candles, and there are about a dozen of them. These soy wax candle will fill your living room and home with the warmth and scent of fall.

Why choose soy? Soy wax is a natural, biodegradable, eco-friendly material. Soy is non-carcinogenic (i.e. does not contain ingredients that when burned could cause cancer) and it burns longer than petroleum-based paraffin waxes. Furthermore, soy supports the U.S. economy as it's grown by farmers and processed here in the U.S.


And then there's the "no place like home" collection like the Michigan candle pictured above. If you're from Michigan like my wife, you'll love that this scented candle will welcome you with the refreshing scent of brisk winds over Lake Michigan shores.

As of this writing there are 32 "no place like home" candles - see if your state is listed, otherwise feel free to contact Kailey. She would love to work with you to create a candle as special and unique as you are.

Now, who wants to win a candle?! Burlap and Lace is graciously offering a 16 oz apple orchard soy wax candle to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader. Kailey is also offering a 10% discount to anyone who spends $10 or more in the shop. Just use coupon code GIVEAWAYGUY at checkout.
