Just After Midnight Giveaway!

Catherine Ryan Hyde

So this is the time I have fun with my blog, and hopefully the moment you're glad you subscribe.

I received a lovely carton of ARCs (Advance Readers' Copies) of my December release, JUST AFTER MIDNIGHT. And I'm going to give three away.

I always beg people to read the paragraphs below. A percentage of you don't. Then  I can't enter you because I can't contact you if you win. So, please, for your own sake... this takes less than a minute:

***PLEASE READ BELOW!*** 

Leave a comment below to be entered. Please DO leave your email address in the comment form (even though it will say it's optional). I promise I won't use it for any other purpose but to notify you if you win. Please DON'T leave your email address in the body of your comment unless you want everybody to see it. (It will seem there is no place for your name and email. But when you hit "Post Comment," you'll see those fields come up.)

And if you're reading this on Goodreads, please click through and leave your comment on my original blog. Otherwise I worry I'll forget you when the time comes to draw names.

I'll leave this open for nine or ten days and then draw three winners at random. Good luck!

 

The Only Audiobook Ever Narrated by Me

Catherine Ryan Hyde

Recently I set out on what I thought might be an interesting project.

The only books of mine that are not available on audio (other than the YA books I published with Knopf) are the two story collections and my essay collection, THE LONG, STEEP PATH.

I thought the latter might be a great one to narrate myself, since it's nonfiction and about my life. In other words, I'm narrating my own experience in my own voice. So I gave that a go.

I do want to offer one disclaimer: It's a new announcement, but it's not a new book. It was published in 2013 and some of the essays are a little older than that. I write a lot about hiking, but only in the interest of sorting out life challenges. If it was a new book I'd be writing a lot about riding dressage in the interest of sorting out life challenges.

In any case, for those who are interested in hearing me narrate some true stories from my own life, the audiobook is available HERE.

Happy... um... listening!

Giveaway!

DSCN8695.jpg

This is my favorite kind of giveaway. I love it when I can offer my readers a shot at a book that can't even be purchased yet. So imagine my delight when the UPS guy brought me a small carton of these yesterday--Advance Reader's Copies of my next novel, HEAVEN ADJACENT, hot off the presses!

Those of you who know me know I'm about to give three of them away.

Now. I say this every time. I'll say it again. I can't make you read the paragraphs below. But if you don't, you may make a mistake that will keep me from being able to enter you. So if you want one of these, please... take thirty seconds.

THE WAKE UP is here (and what's next)!

Catherine Ryan Hyde

I might  be preaching to the choir here, and it might have been perfectly obvious through my giveaway posts, etc. But in case anybody missed the news, today is THE WAKE UP's book birthday!

It is on sale today in every format you've come to expect: Kindle ebook, paperback, MP3 audio, and Audible download.

As always, I love to hear from readers and will look forward to hearing what you think.

And I've just updated my news page with a sneak peek at what's next--my May 2018 release, HEAVEN ADJACENT.

Happy reading!

December is for deal alerts!

Catherine Ryan Hyde

AandBsmall.jpg

I always try to let my readers know when they can pick up one of the books at a discount price. But this month is going to be unlike anything I've ever reported on before.

Here goes, and we'll see if I forget anything.

I have nine--count 'em, nine--ebooks included in the "Literature & Fiction Kindle book deals in the US marketplace." They are: Say Goodbye for Now, Ask Him Why, The Language of Hoofbeats, Take Me with You, When I Found You, Leaving Blythe River, Walk Me Home, Worthy, and Allie and Bea. Whew! Most of these titles are priced at 99 cents for the month of December. A couple are $1.99.

SGFN.jpg

And if you're looking for print books, either for yourself or as gifts, those same nine books will be on sale in physical format as part of the "December Popular Fiction Deal in the US marketplace." They will be priced at either $6.49 or $6.99 (depending on which titles you choose).

And the deals are not only for my US readers! In Australia, I have four ebooks that will be part of the "December 40 for $2 in the AU marketplace."  They are: Ask Him Why, Worthy, Leaving Blythe River, and The Language of Hoofbeats.

In the UK the same four ebooks, Ask Him Why, Worthy, Leaving Blythe River, and The Language of Hoofbeats, will be included in the "December 60 for £1 in the UK marketplace." 

And every single one of these deals lasts until the 31st of December!

WIFY_FrontCover.jpg

I hope you'll forgive me for not linking each one of these titles individually. That would have been a very big job! I trust you know how to find them on Amazon. You can search for them directly, or find them by following the links to the deal pages. 

Happy reading, happy gift-giving! 

Happy holidays!

Large Print Giveaway of ALLIE AND BEA

Catherine Ryan Hyde

DSCN7960.jpg

So, as you know, when my publisher sends me presents in the mail, I announce giveaways. The alternative would be to put these books away in the garage. I have lots of books in my garage (seriously--you have no idea) and I honestly believe that's not where books belong. They should be in the hands of readers. 

And, hey... that's you!

I just received these lovely large print hardcovers of ALLIE AND BEA the day before Thanksgiving. I'm putting three up for grabs right now.

Okay, I say this every time: ***PLEASE READ BELOW!*** About 10% of people don't, and I can't enter them. You want to win free books, right? Right! I thought so!

Leave a comment below to be entered. Please DO leave your email address in the comment form (even though it will say it's optional). I promise I won't use it for any other purpose but to notify you if you win. Please DON'T leave your email address in the body of your comment unless you want everybody to see it.

An audiobook giveaway!

Catherine Ryan Hyde

For those of you who are new subscribers, here's where we have fun.

The UPS guy just brought me a small carton of these. This is the MP3 audiobook of THE WAKE UP, my December 5th release. It can't be bought in stores--yet. I don't even have finished paperbacks. The audiobook beat them to my door.

Those of you who know me know what comes next. I'm giving three away.

For my German readers...

Catherine Ryan Hyde

51OeKIW0hfL._AA300_.jpg

I'm not sure how many of my US readers know this, but my books are enjoying a great deal of popularity in Germany. Which means I owe a real debt of gratitude to my German readers, as well as readers around the world who are reading the German language translations of these titles.

And now I have a way to show that gratitude!

Two of my titles have recently been released as German language audiobooks. They are "Wohin wir gehören" (Where we Belong) and "Was wir suchen" (What We're Searching For, English title Leaving Blythe River).

Amazon Crossing was kind enough to send me eight free download codes for each title. That's 16 free audiobooks!

51gsLT99aUL._AA300_.jpg

Here's where I give them away.

If you read in German, or know someone who does, leave a comment below to let me know you're interested. When you hit "post" a field should come up for your email. Please enter your email so I can contact you with a free code if you win one. I promise I won't use your address for any other purpose.

If fewer than 16 people leave comments, you'll each get a free audiobook. If this giveaway is more popular, I'll choose 16 winners at random.

Viel Glück!

New book plates!

Catherine Ryan Hyde

DSCN7862.jpg

It occurs to me, as I receive my new and updated book plates, that many of my newer readers and subscribers might not know I even offer them.

Spoiler alert: I do!

All you have to do is CLICK ON THIS LINK and follow directions. Basically you just send me a SASE and I send you bookplates. Hand-signed. Personalized if you like. And they cost you nothing but the two stamps. 

You stick one in your book... voila! Signed copy.

I've offered these for a couple of years, but while reordering, I had them updated. The one with the book spines now has all the books, right through THE WAKE UP in December. The one with the two photos was updated from me in the Grand Canyon in '06 to me in my first horse show this past July. And look who got added to the footprint one.

I'll expect a few SASEs in the post office box soon.

Thanks for being my readers! 

UK, German, and Australian readers: September is your month!

Catherine Ryan Hyde

AandBsmall.jpg

I know it must be frustrating to my readers outside the US. I post these price promotions on the books, but not for your marketplace. I've been saying for months that my publisher is spreading out to more territories with these deals. September is a great example of what I mean.

In the UK my newest novel, ALLIE AND BEA, and my second-newest, SAY GOODBYE FOR NOW, will be included in the "September 60 for £1," starting 9/1 and running through 9/30. As the title of the promotion suggests, the ebooks will be 1GBP each all month. 

For those of you in Australia, ALLIE AND BEA will be part of the "September 20 for $2" in the AU marketplace, starting 9/1 and running through 9/30. The ebook will be only 2AUD for the month.

And last but not least, my German novel HEIMWEH (translation of WALK ME HOME) will be a "Top-Rated Deal" in the DE marketplace, starting 9/6 and running through 9/19. The Kindle ebook will be offered at 2.99EUR during that promotion period. 

Whew!

Happy reading!

A big handful of authors and I got together to offer a book giveaway that starts August 28th and goes until midnight EDT Tuesday, September 5th. Heather Burch will announce the winner on the 6th. You'll win multiple books by different authors if you win, so it should be a great chance to check out some new reading.

Along with these nine signed books, the winner will receive a $100 Amazon gift card. You know, for... more books!

Here's the link to enter.
