Corvidae ARC Giveaway

coming-soon-from-wwpIt’s almost time for Corvidae to hit the shelves (July 7th!) and you know what that means, right? It means I get to giveaway an ARC to one lucky person. You could be one of the very first people to get your hot little hands on a copy!

Associated with life and death, disease and luck, corvids have long captured mankind’s attention, showing up in mythology as the companions or manifestations of deities, and starring in stories from Aesop to Poe and beyond.

In Corvidae birds are born of blood and pain, trickster ravens live up to their names, magpies take human form, blue jays battle evil forces, and choughs become prisoners of war. These stories will take you to the Great War, research facilities, frozen mountaintops, steam-powered worlds, remote forest homes, and deep into fairy tales. One thing is for certain, after reading this anthology, you’ll never look the same way at the corvid outside your window.

Featuring works by Jane Yolen, Mike Allen, C.S.E. Cooney, M.L.D. Curelas, Tim Deal, Megan Engelhardt, Megan Fennell, Adria Laycraft, Kat Otis, Michael S. Pack, Sara Puls, Michael M. Rader, Mark Rapacz, Angela Slatter, Laura VanArendonk Baugh, and Leslie Van Zwol.

It’s super easy to enter to win, too. The Rafflecopter widget below gives you lots of options (some of which you can do every day to maximize your chances to win:

But wait! There’s more!

As you may know, Corvidae is book #2 in the series we’re calling “Rhonda Parrish’s Magical Menageries“. That series began with Fae and will continue with Corvidae’s companion anthology, Scarecrow (due out in August).

I’ll be straight with you, Fae could really use some more reviews on Amazon. It’s received great reviews, don’t get me wrong, but they mostly seem to be centered on Goodreads* and whether you love it or hate it, Amazon is the 500lb gorilla in this industry and reviews there have more, well, weight, than reviews on Goodreads.

So, if Fae reaches ten (10) reviews on Amazon** by the time this giveaway ends on June 2nd I will have the Rafflecopter choose a second winner and that winner will receive an ARC of Scarecrow.

If we surpass 10 reviews before June 2nd I will edit this blog post to add some ‘stretch goals’, each of which will look an awful lot like an ARC 😉

*I don’t want to seem ungrateful for the reviews on Goodreads, because I really, truly AM grateful for them. It’s just that now I need to focus on getting some on Amazon as well.
**I only want honest reviews, so if you haven’t read Fae yet, well, now is as good a time as any LOL Or you can just cross your fingers and hope the people who have read it will review it on Amazon 🙂

One thought on “Corvidae ARC Giveaway

  1. Good afternoon, Ms Parrish,

    I felt bad I had missed the last #SFFLunch (in May) as I was wicked happy finding another incredibly open hearted convo for Fantasy lovers! I regularly duck inside #CreatureChat (Weds @ 9p) and had to let go of my other favourite: #FantasyChat (Suns @ 8p) for awhile. I wrote about how I discovered World Weaver Press and why I elected to pick FAE as my first request by the publisher on my blog post “10 Bookish / Not Bookish No1”.

    What I hadn’t realised is that the anthology I discovered is going to be a serial anthology collection wherein there are more installments forthcoming! It’s a new ground for me to take up residence, as I’m new to both reading anthologies (wells, technically I’ve read a small few which turnt my eye onto them!) and for finding ‘serials’ take on different meanings in SFF! I still remember the first time I met a ‘duology’ rather than a ‘trilogy’ or a ‘quad’!

    I hear you about the need for more reader imputs and impressions, however, I took a different tactic on how I approach it all. I personally opt for alternatives to A as I strive to help Indies by using Indie alternatives to the one who tends to monopolise the whole.

    However, I simply wanted to say I’m reading FAE and my review will post in June! 🙂 I cannot wait to share what I found inside the collection and how my first immersion into World Weaver Press gave me an uplift of joy for the genre which is truly bringing out new talent and new methodologies of telling stories within the craft of where the genre can yield plausible!

    Rock on! 🙂
