And the winner is…

During Dec. 1-24, I ran a huge giveaway on my Facebook author page. 24 days with a new ‘gift’ each day. All gifts would go to one US winner. But just what was up for grabs?

  • A moody and broody swag bag
  • A signed copy of Short Shorts
  • A rom-com swag bag
  • A signed copy of The ABCs of Dee
  • A character’s name of the winner’s choosing in an upcoming book of mine
  • A signed copy of Pulled
  • A signed copy of Pulled Back
  • A signed copy of Pulled Back Again
  • A bookmark swag collection
  • A signed copy of The Lurkers Within
  • A signed copy of What Moons Do
  • A signed copy of Doppelganger
  • A signed copy of Must Love Coffee
  • A signed copy of Taking Stock
  • A 30 min Zoom call with me to talk about whatever
  • A sexy swag bag
  • A signed copy of The First 100 Kisses
  • A signed copy of The Second 100 Kisses
  • A signed copy of Where You Left Me, Vol. 1
  • A signed copy of Where You Left Me, Vol. 2
  • A signed copy of Where You Left Me, Vol. 3
  • A signed copy of Girl on Fire
  • A signed limited print run hardcover of the 10th Anniversary Edition of Pulled
  • A signed copy of Waiting in the Wings

And a partridge in a pear tree! Ha! Almost ALL of my books (except for the fantasy trilogy.) The rules were pretty simple. Each day, I’d post the daily gift and people could enter using a Google Form. The more days they entered, the more names their name was put in the ‘virtual’ hat. Then, I used Random.org to pick a winner from the list of entries.

And that winner was…

The winner has been notified and their package will be on the way this week. Fair warning, it’s gonna be a big and heavy box!

In 2023, I plan more giveaways on a variety of platforms, so be sure you’re following me in the places below to get in on all of them because sometimes I make the giveaways exclusive to the platform. I’m sneaky like that.

It’s ARC time… Again.

Seriously, though, didn’t you JUST have Advanced Review Copy sign-ups? It sure feels like it! It was back in April when I sent my last one out, but when you do a rapid-release, you need to do everything rapidly.

Now, I realize, of course, that my last post was called Why Bother? A Constant Writer Battle (about the struggles of this very series) However, that doesn’t change the fact that the book still needs eyeballs on it in advance of release day: Aug. 9, 2022.

What exactly does an ARC reader do? Excellent question, glad you asked. ARC readers are given a digital copy of my soon-to-be-released book to read in advance of anyone else, in exchange for their honest feedback/review of said book. It’s a gamble for the reader and a gamble for the writer. However, in this current market, reviews are a good way to get algorithms to take notice of a new title. Hence, why authors rely so heavily on them. They are a necessary evil.

My ARC copies have been to the editor, but, as we all know, typos happen. So, I do lean on my ARC readers to give me a heads up if they notice something is off or the formatting is janky. They are the last set of eyes on the manuscript before it goes out into the wild.

If you have happened to already read Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 and are itching to either get your hands on an early copy or are willing to help an indie author out, then you can sign up to be on the team here.

Read these? Need more? Then sign up to read Vol. 3 before anyone else can buy it!

Also, this is the last week to sign up to win the two paperbacks above in this giveaway!

That’s all for now! I have a paperback to format. Who knew a writer’s life was so glamourous?

Want me? Well, not ME…

Every few months, I like to do a giveaway either here on my blog or do an exclusive giveaway to my Newsletter subscribers. They got the last giveaway option, so this time, I thought I’d let my blog readers in on the fun!

Up for grabs are not one, but two signed paperbacks! Where You Met Me, Vol. 1 AND Vol.2!


WARNING: These books contain sexy scenes with lots of details, so if you’re not down for that, maybe skip this one!

If, however, steamy/spicy contemporary romance is your thing, fill out this super-duper short form and that’s it! At the end of the month, I’ll pick the lucky receivers!

Vol. 3 is already up for pre-order and will be going to the editor very soon! Vol. 4 is over halfway written and Vol. 5 will be shortly behind it. Winning these would be a great way to get started on this steamy romance.

PS. (If you do like that sort of book, you can also snatch up some freebies on this LAST day of this one: https://books.bookfunnel.com/cassie14344/4gf46d2n0n)

Until next time, my friends! May the odds be ever in your favor!

1 Week left: GC opportunity inside!

After what was the longest January in the history of Januarys we are now into Feb. Which means Where You Left Me, Vol 1 drops in exactly one week!

Eeep and Ahhh!

I’ve also partnered with BookFunnel for a few promos this month to get the word out about my release, and one of the promos included a chance to win a 250 dollar GC to the Zon! How cool is that! While you’re there you can see a list of new releases for February! Check it out here.

Another cool thing is that if you’re a subscriber to my newsletter you were just sent the first chapter of the book (and subscribers will get some more bonus content this month too, so if you’re not on the list, now is a great time to subscribe!)

For those of you who haven’t subscribed, I’ll offer you just the first few opening paragraphs. (Dani Bannister (c) 2022.)

So, this is it. This is the place where you left me. Not very original, I have to say. I would have thought you’d come up with something less cliché than leaving me at the altar, but now that I’ve had a minute to think about it, everything about you was predictable. Ordinary. Nothing earth-shattering. Not even the sex. Yeah, that was all fake by the way.

Believe it or not, you leaving me standing here all alone is not the worst part about this messed-up day. It’s what you’re making me do now that’s pissing me off. Because of your spineless ass, I need to go out to that waiting crowd and face my parents. Hell, I have to face your parents and all your dipshit friends you made me invite. This should not be my job. You’re the one who couldn’t keep your hands to yourself. Because, of course, you were banging one of my bridesmaids. You couldn’t be more of a tool if you tried.

Then again, what does that make me in this story? No. I will not be the loser in this scenario. Screw that. Screw you. You saved me a lifetime of regret and bad dick. So, you know what? Thank you. Thank you for taking years of misery off my shoulders.

If this premise excites you, you can pre-order now, or snag a copy next Tuesday 2-8-22.
