This week sees the release of The Legend of Eli Monpress, which is an omnibus edition containing Rachel Aaron’s three first novels: The Spirit Thief, The Spirit Rebellion and The Spirit Eater. I’ll have a review coming up here very soon, but meanwhile I already have a treat: thanks to the author, I have one big fat juicy paperback copy (over 1,000 pages!) to give away to a lucky reader in the US.
To enter the giveaway, simply send an email with subject line “ELI” to fbrgiveaway AT gmail DOT com with your full name and mailing address. Easy right? Right. The author will be sending out your prize, so if you’d like the book signed or personalized, let me know in the email.
Now, it gets even better: if you’d like to improve your chances of winning, you can gain additional entries in the raffle by following me on Twitter, following the blog via email, and/or liking the site on Facebook (links on top right of this page). You gain one additional entry for each of those, so together with the first entry you can have a total of four chances of winning the raffle. If you do the Twitter, Facebook or email thing, mention your Facebook or Twitter name in the email so I can verify everything. (People who already follow/like the blog can also get those additional chances by mentioning their Facebook or Twitter names in the email.)
The giveaway will end on Monday, March 5th at 11:59 PM, and I’ll contact the winner the following day. Please note again that this giveaway is only open to residents of the US. Void where prohibited by law, rules are subject to change, may impair your ability to operate machinery, and of course, batteries not included. Bunch of cheapskates.

He Stefan! Thanks for the great giveaway. This series has been on my list for a while now. 🙂 And sounds like so much fun.
Boo-hoo… why not include Canada in the giveaway as well? I would have loved to get this omnibus… already read all three books, and now anxiously awaiting for The Spirit War to come out in June.
It’s really up to the publisher and/or author who provides the giveaway prize, as they are (usually) the ones shipping the book. In this case, it’s unfortunately US only, but future giveaways may include Canada or be worldwide. I have a great giveaway coming up next week that’ll be worldwide, so stay tuned.

Woohoo! I’ve been looking at these novels since they came out last year, somehow never got to them, and I could never seem to find just the first one at the bookstore.
Then this is definitely the edition to get! It’s affordable compared to the separate books, and the artwork is much better than the first books. And – it’s a fun read!
