Major Book Giveaway, because….

ylva-logo1Today is a very special day: We’re celebrating World Book Day, one year since we’ve published the first book, and it’s my birthday, all rolled into one.

As an avid reader, I always thought it fitting that my birthday falls on the same day as the World Book Day.

And since I love to give presents, I decided that now that I’ve become a publisher, I’d really love to spread the joy and give away plenty of books.

So, here you go—this is our biggest book giveaway so far. You can choose between:

One e-book version each of:

– Backwards to Oregon by Jae

– Beyond the Trail by Jae

– Connected Hearts / Anthology

– Gingerbread Hearts / Anthology

– Hot Line by Alison Grey

– L.A. Metro by RJ Nolan

– Manhattan Moon by Jae

– Something in the Wine by Jae

– The Wish by RJ Nolan

One autographed paperback each of:

– Backwards to Oregon by Jae (revised and expanded edition)

– Hot Line by Alison Grey

– Something in the Wine by Jae

One paperback of:

-L.A. Metro by RJ Nolan

Every participant can choose one book he or she would like to win.

If you want to participate in the giveaway, leave a comment or send an e-mail to and let us know which book you would like to have. There’s only one copy of each book we’re giving away. The deadline for this giveaway is tomorrow (Wednesday) 11.59 p.m. Please note that recourse to the courts is excluded.

We’ll announce the winners on this blog on Thursday.

The best of luck

    Happy birthday! I’m not picky so whichever Book you want to share with me (if you want of course) would be nice!
    Here in Peru (my country and currently my place to live) is the Spanish language day, so either English or Spanish, it’s a great day to read.

    Have a great day.
