Mega DECEPTION ARC Giveaway!!

Hello, my fabulous readers!

I can't believe it's been nearly a year since DEFIANCE hit the shelves. So much has happened in that year, but the one thing that never fails to amaze me about it all is YOU.

You, who read my book and loved it. You, who told others to read it, too. Who bought it for friends or libraries. Who wrote reviews. Who eagerly talked to me about it and tried to get me to tell you spoilers for DECEPTION. ;D

I'm a big believer that having a diverse offering of books on the shelves is the best possible thing. Not every book is perfect for every reader. As an author, I'm not hoping that every reader will enjoy my books. I'm just looking for my tribe. The people who love my genre, like my writing, and want to live inside more of my stories.

This past year, many of you joined my tribe, and I thank you. I wish I had a super cool secret handshake to teach you, but that would probably just be awkward. So instead, I'm celebrating my awesome tribe of readers with a Mega DECEPTION ARC Giveaway!




You get an entry just for being the awesome reader that you are. All you have to do is leave a blog comment & take credit for it in the Rafflecopter widget! You get more entries for helping me spread the word about DEFIANCE and DECEPTION.

Please note (this is SUPER important to me) that the "post a review" entries are a) totally optional and b) require an honest review of DEFIANCE. If you loved it, great! Tell other readers why. If it was okay for you, tell them that. If you hated it, I'm not sure why you'd want an early copy of DECEPTION, but your opinion matters, and I only ask that you post honest reviews. :)

Let's get to the prizes, shall we? I am giving away three signed ARCs (Advanced Review Copies) of DECEPTION to three separate winners. I am also sending five personalized DECEPTION post cards out to five runner-up winners.

International entries are welcome.

The contest runs from today until July 22nd, 2013. Best of luck to all of you, and thank you so much for being one of my readers. You deserve magical unicorns and ninja kittens.

  2. YAY!! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR MAKING THIS INTERNATIONAL!!

    (and sorry for all the caps, but can you tell I'm excited!?!?!).

    What am I hoping that will get fixed in Deception? I'm hoping they can discover who is the one really controlling the Cursed Ones... cause I'm afraid (and also looking forward to!) that we'll probably get more questions than answers this time!

  3. Awesome giveaway! I'm trying to remember what happened at the end of Defiance since I read it awhile ago.. but I think what I would like to see solved by the end of Deception depends on whether or not this is going to be a trilogy. If this is it, I need to know what's the deal with the Cursed One!

    ReplyDelete
  4. I can't really think of a conflict off the top of my head, but I just want more Rachel and Logan!!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  5. Definitely the Cursed One!!! I need to know ALL!!!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Can't wait to read it!!! The problem to solve - hmmmmmmm. Maybe how the Cursed One is controlled and how the Commander has so much control over it!

    ReplyDelete
  7. I need to know where the Commander went and how Rachel and Logan are going to find him!

    LOVED Defiance - I have Deception preordered, but I'd love a chance to read it early!!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Yeah, my biggest hope is to figure out who is controlling the cursed ones as well! Who is it!! AHHHH

    Thank you so much for this awesome giveaway!

  9. I want to know where the Commander is! Also I want everything between Logan and Rachel to be perfect and sunny and full of happiness, but obviously that's not going to happen, is it? :)

    ReplyDelete
  10. I think we all want to know what happened to the Commander! And I also want more Logan and Rachel cuteness!

  11. Ohmygosh, this is such an amazing giveaway! I haven't read Defiance yet, but I will really soon! I found a copy of it while volunteering at the library, so I have it ready to read. :D I'd love to read Deception!

  12. Not entering the contest because I have an ARC. But I just want to say that I'm reading Deception now and it's awesome. Can't wait to share it on my blog.

  13. *bounces up and down and squeals* Yaaay! Thanks so much for this amazing giveaway! I adored Defiance and I can't wait to read Deception! *crosses my fingers* I hope I win!

    One thing that I'd love to appear in Deception is more information about the history before the time period, more info about the different townships, who is really controlling the Cursed One and why, and finally.. MORE LOGAN AND RACHEL <3 They are so cute and I'm seriously suffering from withdrawal, even if I've read Defiance multiple times :3

    ReplyDelete
  14. I hope we find out more about the Cursed One! I want to know about the time period between the Cursed Ones destroying civilization and the Commanders creating their own city-states; I think that would be really interesting. More Rachel and Logan would be great too (: Thanks for the awesome giveaway!!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Eek! I can't wait for DECPETION! I am looking forward to find out how the cursed one is controlled :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. To be completely honest, its been so long since I read Defiance that I think I need a re-read to jog my memory. But I do know that I loved it! That's not something I forgot :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. grrr every single time I try to enter, it says aw schucks like some shy, Old West child with manners, but doesn't enter me :(((( *sniff* I may cry. Ok. I'll try again tomorrow before I let out the waterworks.

  19. I'm super excited to read Defiance! eeppp, if I win this thing I am so gonna jump and scream and kick and pretty much do what any book geek does *faints*
    Anyway, I'd love to see where Rachel and Logan's relationship goes and of course there's the big mystery on the Commander.
    Thank you for the giveaway! :)

  20. I want to know what happened to the Commander!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Thank you so much for the giveaway, C.J. What an exciting time for you!! As I have told you, Defiance is my go to read for inspiration, so I cannot wait for Deception!I want to know why certain people seem to have "control" over the Cursed One and why the Commander is one of them!!I am also curious as to the title - Deception...leads you to believe something bad will happen!But most of all I want to see more of Logan and Rachel - they are so strong in their own rights, but make each other more so when together. LOVE THEM!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Can it all be fixed in DECEPTION so book three can just be ALL OF THE KISSING!? I would like that. <3 ;)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I loved loved LOVED Defiance...in fact, a patron recommended that I (a librarian) should read it and I am so glad that I did!

    ReplyDelete

  25. I am embarrassed to admit that I haven't read Defiance yet, though I've really been meaning to. *hangs head in shame*

    ReplyDelete
  26. I hope we see a map in Deception. I'd love a map to frame :-)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I would like to see the issue of The Cursed One semi solved, not completely solved so there can be more awesomeness in book 3. I really want to see more Logan <3

    ReplyDelete
  28. I can't wait to see what becomes of Baalboden now that the city is completely destroyed will the commander or cursed one comeback and who is really controlling the cursed one also will the Mysterious leaders of the other cities make an appearance

    ReplyDelete
  29. Can I just start off by saying I just finished Defiance and I looooooooooooooooOOOOOOOOOOve it!!! C.J. Redwine, you are one of my new favourite authors! And Defiance is one of my favourite books. And I want a Logan McEntire. I can't wait to read Deception. As for problems to be solved, I hope to find out who is controlling the Cursed One, but mostly I'm really curious as to what happened to the Commander. I'm also really looking forward to seeing how Rachel deals with the grief and pain she's been feeling over the traumatic loss of her Dad and Oliver. And how is Logan going to deal with his own pain and grief. In Defiance he did a good job of being strong for Rachel, but I wonder if it might get to him more in the sequel? I also wonder if Rowansmark will be a bigger part of the next book since there seems to be a rising war between the two city-states.

  30. I just want to see what's going to happen next. :)

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  31. One of the MANY problems I hope get solved is Rachel and Logan's relationship! They are sooooo right for each, and now that Logan wants Rachel things are to complicated! I really want them to work with each other and embrace each other! I can't wait! Oh, another things I hope is that they put the Commander 6 FEET UNDER!!!

  32. I want to know more about the cursed one! And this is very far fetched, but I want Rachel's father to be alive and that grave to have been a trick!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I would love to know more of The Cursed One! Thanks for the chance

    ReplyDelete
  34. Rachel's guilt and craving for vengeance! I see that as a huge problem, since she's so impulsive. Also, who is controlling The Cursed One! D:

    Thank you for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Ack, I wish I remembered more from Defiance, but I know I loved it and can't wait for Deception, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  36. No big, glaring problems in my reading of Defiance. But I suppose if I had to pick one area that I would like to see elaborated on further it would be in the world building department. More back story on how Rachel and Logan's world came to be the way it is:)

    ReplyDelete
  37. THE COMMANDER! I really really am hoping he ends up dead. That it all.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I want to know more about the Cursed One.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Most importantly, I want to see Rachel & Logan get some serious revenge on the Commander! =D

    ReplyDelete
  40. Well... the Cursed Ones are really unknown. I want to know more about them!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Ah! I really enjoyed deception, and would love to get back to Rachel & Logan. I rated it on Goodreads...but I didn't write a review for it, it's been too long to leave one without a re-read, but I do remember so enjoying it. :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Haven't gotten started on my copy of Defiance yet unfortunately :/ But seriously hope to! Thanks for the amazing giveaway :D

    ReplyDelete
  43. I want to know more about how the Cursed Ones and about the history of Baalboden and I'm so looking forward to Deception for the chance to learn those things. :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'd like to know how they can get rid of the Cursed One and more of where it came from.

    ReplyDelete
  45. First, Defiance rocked. I don't even want to say what I'm hoping for in Deception, because I just want to bask in what you've come up with (and possibly lock the book in the freezer for a while, depending on the circumstances).

    Second, I'm pretty sure the secret handshake of your tribe would look something like this: Person A walks toward person B with hand out, palm upward. Person B walks toward person A with opposite hand out, palm downward. Both person A and person B walk into the non-automatic door that separates them without ever making contact, and share a beautiful concussion as a memento of the encounter. :-P
