RoseBlood & The Architect of Song GIVEAWAY BASH

Sorry I've been quiet online for a few weeks -- one of the downsides to having 2 books coming out within months of each other. Juggling duel sets of edits and pass pages at the same time leads to long days and nights in the writing cave. 

But, there's also a huge upside that I get to share with all of you! Two books coming out means twice the giveaways, and today I decided to double up and have a RoseBlood reveal and two Architect of Song announcements, along with prizes tied to each book. 

First, the reveal -- RoseBlood's official trailer:




Here's hoping that left you even hungrier for the haunting story behind the mask. ;) I'm so looking forward to January when this baby hits the shelves!

And The Architect of Song announcements:

The official tour, sponsored by RockStar Book Tours, is on the horizon:




Mark your calendars because there will be early reviews, insider peeks, and prizes galore. 

Also, the kindle version is now up for preorder! Here are two beautiful pictures taken by some talented bloggers as proof:

Several readers have asked if there will be a printed version of this book, and yes, there is (I'm giving one away today). However, the preorder option is only available for the e-version. The paperback will be available to buy on the release date: August 15th, 2016. 

Now, to the giveaway (yes, it's INTL)! 

Up for grabs today:


One signed RoseBlood ARC



One signed The Architect of Song paperback



One signed RoseBlood panoramic poster



One signed The Architect of Song poster



One musical sheet necklace (18 inch chain)




One set of signed RoseBlood swag




One set of signed The Architect of Song swag





Enter the rafflecopter below for your chance to win one of these seven fabulous prizes (INTL)! Good luck to all, and I hope to see you later this month for The Architect of Song's blog tour. Have a happy and safe 4th of July, everyone!

  1. The cover for ROSEBLOOD is gorgeous, and the music for the trailer is beautiful. Somber, quiet, and chilling. The images are really nice, too; it gives a very dark, creepy tone. I really like it. :D I've always loved Phantom of the Opera. Can't wait to see what you do with it, A.G.!

  2. Wow! I loved the music you used--and the images were amazing. My favourite was of the girl, whose back was a violin! And the final one, too. Looks so eerie and exciting!
    Question, is this a standalone?

  104. Hello - I think I screwed up with entering the raffle. I first logged onto it with my Facebook account, then I did it over with my email account. So, am I entered in twice? Also, once you enter, how does it know if you did any of the options given (such as sharing this giveaway on Facebook)? Any help here would be appreciated. Also... Will the Roseblood posters always be exclusive? Or will they end up as art I could buy online?
