Awaken the Darkness Countdown & Giveaway


Only two weeks to go until the release of Awaken the Darkness! I'm so excited! Thank you, everyone, who has been sharing in that excitement. I love hearing that you're looking forward to reading Stanislav and Susan's story:

Return to the "utterly addictive" (RT Book Reviews), "fast-paced and humorous" (Publishers Weekly) world of New York Times bestselling author Dianne Duvall's Immortal Guardians.  

He awakens encapsulated in dirt with no knowledge of how he came to be there. Riddled with injuries, he can remember neither his past nor who he is. Nor can he remember what he is. But surely no mortal man could survive being buried deep beneath the earth. All he knows with certainty is that the soothing voice and presence of the woman moving around above enables him to endure the agony of his wounds. And he will do whatever it takes to be with her.


When Susan first sees the old two-story house for sale, such warmth and longing fill her that—against all reason—she makes an offer. It will take years of hard work and money she frankly doesn’t have to fix up the place. So she can’t explain why she bought it. She also can’t explain what compels her to spend hours one night, digging in the basement until she unearths a man. A man who still lives and breathes despite having been buried alive. A man whose intense brown eyes glow amber with pain, declaring him far more than ordinary. Susan knows she should keep her distance. He has no memory and possesses gifts that would make most fear him. But as the two work together to unravel the mystery of his past, she finds herself drawn in by his teasing nature and tender touch. So much so that she loses her heart to him even as they find themselves hunted by unknown enemies who are ruthless in their quest to capture them.

Thank you, too, everyone who has pre-ordered the ebook or paperback. (I'm hoping to have the Audible pre-order link for you soon.) Pre-orders are so important to authors. So I wanted to show my appreciation by launching an Awaken the Darkness Pre-Order Giveaway that is separate from my Blog Tour Giveaway (see below).



Because some fans of the series who have won gift cards in my previous giveaways confessed that they really wanted the Immortal Guardians/The Gifted Ones prize pack, I decided to offer 1 Gift Card this time along with 2 Prize Packs instead of the reverse. And the Prize Packs are really cool. Here's a larger picture:



Each Prize Pack winner will receive an Awaken the Darkness pillow (my personal favorite), a signed Blade of Darkness paperback, an Awaken the Darkness coffee mug, an Immortal Guardians pen, 4 postcards, 12 bookmarks, and 12 trading cards. I do, unfortunately, have to restrict this giveaway to residents of the United States and Canada not because I don't appreciate international readers, but because I've run into difficulties in the past issuing gift cards and shipping prize packs to overseas winners. Sorry about that.

So if you've pre-ordered Stanislav and Susan's story, please give me a chance to thank you with awesome goodies:

The Immortal Guardians Read Along continues in my Dianne Duvall Books Group on Facebook. This is the first time I've done one, and I'm really enjoying it. :-) I have to say, one of the best things an author can hear is that someone enjoyed the series enough to reread it multiple times. I've been hearing that a lot lately from readers, including those in my Books Group, and just want to hug every one of you. That is so awesome!! I love making people happy and bringing a smile to their faces. Thank you for doing the same to me through your comments and messages and emails. 💙

It's not too late to join the Read Along. Just hop over to the group and start playing.

I was going to post another sneak peek, but think I'll let the except mentioned above tempt you instead. ;-)

Have a wonderful week!

Dianne
