Spring Celebration Interviews & Giveaways - Week 2

Spring Celebration 2011 - It's Here!

The page has turned in the calendar. The snow has begun to melt, and the flowers are beginning to bud. Spring, the season of transformation and rebirth, is finally upon us!

To help celebrate the season, please join me for interviews, guest posts, and some super giveaways all month long.

A huge thanks to everybody who stopped by last week - our winners for Week 1 have been drawn and will be contacted later today. If you weren't one of them, don't worry . . . there are plenty more chances to win this week!

Here is a taste of what's in store for this week:

  • An encore review of Timothy McGivney's Zombielicious (which one lucky reader will win a copy of this week).
  • An interview with exciting and enticing Chris Burrows, an author with a passion for sharing the true stories of the tantalizing transvestites and lovely ladyboys he has befriended during his travels across Asia. His latest, Porn's Stars, completes his first quintet of stories from Transgenderland.
  • review of Justine Saracen's Sarah, Son of God (which one lucky reader will have the opportunity to claim a copy of this week).
  • Some reading recommendations from Amnesia Sparkles from, one of my all-time favourite morning reads.
  • An interview with Red Haircrow, a two-spirit author of Native American descent who shares my love for science fiction and fantasy. His latest, Night Shift, is available JMS Books . . . which means one lucky reader will have the opportunity to claim a copy this week.
  • An interview with the amazing Justine Saracen, an author who puts an LGBTQ twist on the likes of Indiana Jones and Dan Brown. Her latest, Sarah, Son of God, is available from Bold Strokes Books, which which means (you guessed it) one lucky reader will have the opportunity to claim a copy this week.

Oh, and did I mention giveaways? Yes, I believe I did . . . and I'm very excited about it! Once again this week we have not 1, not 2, not even 3, but 4 (count 'em, four) giveaways to share, all courtesy of our wonderfully generous sponsors:

  • Reader's choice of any title (print or electronic) from Bold Strokes Books
  • Reader's choice of any electronic title from JMS Books
  • Reader's choice of any print title from JMS Books
  • Reader's choice of either a print or electronic copy of Timothy McGivney's Zombielicious.

We'll be drawing 4 random winners this week. The first winner drawn will get his/her choice of the 4 prizes available, the second will get to choose from the 3 remaining, and so on. What do you have to do to enter? Well, it's really quite simple:

  • Simply leave a comment on any of this week's April Celebration interviews, reviews & recommendations mentioned above, and be sure to include your email address in the comment so I can contact the winners. It's really that easy.
  • You don't have to be a follower, but being a follower will earn you a bonus entry for the week (just let me know in your comment if you're a new follower or an old favourite).

I encourage you to stop by all week (all month, for that matter) and leave a comment on all of our guests, either to enter the week's giveaway, or just to express your appreciation for their efforts. Comments are open until Sunday (April 17th) at midnight, and I'll be drawing the winners on Monday (April 18th) . . . just in time to announce what's happening for Week 3 of our Spring Celebration.

Thanks to our guests for participating, to our sponsors for helping out, and to you - the readers - for stopping by and taking part!
