Mini-announcements (+ giveaway)

This week, I’m resuming the weekly giveaway, now that I’m settled into my new blog home and summer is over. But first, I have a few little bits of news!

First, don’t forget, if you’re going to be in the San Antonio area, that Sophie Jordan and I are signing together at the B&N at La Cantera on Sept. 15. Details can be found here.

Second, it looks like they’ll be revealing the cover for With All My Soul the second week in September, so watch the Harlequin Teen FB page for that, around the 13th. I know several of you have already seen the cover, either in a catalogue or through another promotional effort by my publisher, and I think it’s awesome that you got an early peek (Yay, someone else has seen my beautiful cover!). But I think it’s even more awesome that you’ve resisted the urge to pre-empt our reveal by posting the cover first. Thanks so much to everyone who’s seen the cover, but kept it private. I really appreciate the courtesy.

Third, I’ve posted a new Blogger FAQ page, where I’ve answered the questions I get most often from bloggers. If you’re reading this on my actual blog, you should see the link at the top of your screen. If you’re reading this in a crosspost (FB, LJ, Amazon, GR, etc…) you can click here to read the Blogger FAQ.

And…now for the giveaway!

To enter this week’s giveaway, leave a comment in this post telling me how you first found my books. Library? Blog? Browsing a brick-and-morter store? Recommendation from a friend?

Up for grabs: Winner’s choice of any one print book from my list of prize books.

The details:

  • One winner will be chosen and announced here on Monday, Sept 3, 2012.
  • One entry per person. If you have another question or comment for me, please leave it in the same comment as your entry. That makes it easier for me to count
  • You must be at least 18 years old or have a parent/legal guardian’s permission to enter, and to provide a shipping address if you win.
  • Please allow 2+ weeks for shipping within the continental US and 4+ weeks for shipping outside of the continental US.
  • Void where prohibited.
  • DO NOT type your email address or shipping information into the body of your comment. I don’t need either of those until/unless you win.
  • YOU MUST come back to this blog on Monday, September 3 to see if you win. The winner will not be contacted; s/he must follow the instructions on Monday’s blog post to claim the prize.

Now I’m off to get some work done. Wish me luck!

    A friend from Goodreads recommended me the Shifters series a few years ago and I was hooked so I had to read Soul screamers too. I cant wait for the cover, I bet it will be the best one in the series :)

    I first heard about your books through last year’s Crush Tourney then so many of my friends talked about how great they were so I picked them up from the library and read the first 5 Soul Screamers in about 2 weeks

    I found My Soul To Take while browsing a Barnes and Noble book store right after it releases. I bought it, loved it and searched the web and that’s where I came across The Shifters series and all your awesomeness!

  7. Ashley Holdren

    August 28, 2012

    I first found your books after my husband bought me an e-reader for Christmas a few years ago. I was browsing through all the books and I found My Soul To Take. I thought it sounded interesting, so I bought it. I was hooked from the very beginning!

  8. Emmalee Giantomasso

    August 28, 2012

    I think I was browsing the bookstore and the cover of stray caught my eye, and next thing I knew I had devouredthe first three and was not so patiently waiting the release if your fourth. And while I was waiting I picked up Kaylee’s series and feel in love there too. I am not shamed to admit I have read every single one of your books since then and I’ve laughed and cried, and have enjoyed every second of it. You are one of the first authors I recommend to friends. So thank you, not only foot the giveaway, but for giving all girls a role model to look up to in Faythe, someone who us strong and not afraid to bend the rules a little to pave her path in life. Thank you for letting me go on that journey. :)

    August 28, 2012

    I met you at RT in 2010 and was intrigued by both your Shifters and Soul Screamers series so I picked up the first book in each series. I’m so glad I did. You have grown to be one of my favorite authors and I recommend you every chance I get. Thanks for the opportunity!

  10. Heather Mitchell

    My friend was reading My soul to take, and I saw the cover and was immediately interested! I asked her if I could read the synopsis, and later that night I went to my local library and finished the book the next day!

  14. Laura R

    August 28, 2012

    I was creating a list of “Urban Fantasy” books for my job in a public library. I had read several of the books on the list already, but wanted some I wasn’t familiar with. The Shifters books caught my eye & I’ve never looked back from any of your series!

  15. Charissa

    August 28, 2012

    I was just checking out some of my favourite book blog where they were talking about your next book (at that time it was SS #4). I wasn’t much of an internet fan up until then, so I usually didn’t read blogs (shame on me, now I’m addicted and I became a reviewer!).

    So I decided to check the first book and read it. I liked it, even if I wasn’t really ‘I-absolutely-love-this-book’. Then I went on and on and couldn’t help falling in love with the way you write, how you described the characters growing and changing and soon SS became one of my fav series. i took part in the SSRC over at Fiktshun and had the chance to read again the series and see how my opinion has changed.

    Also, I got almost all your books in all the series now!

  19. Amber

    August 28, 2012

    I read about Faythe in the 2011 Alpha showdown at Vampire Book Club & picked up the entire shifters series and read it in one week.

  20. Tiffany Riach

    August 28, 2012

    I first found the Shifters series browsing through amazon. Still one of my favorite series to read :)

  21. Rachelle

    August 28, 2012

    I was browsing Barnes and Noble after Christmas, ready to spend my giftcard money, when I saw the first two Soul Screamers books.

  22. Carissa

    August 28, 2012

    I first saw your books browsing through Goodreads, and thought they looked intriguing. After that I kept noticing them on Amazon and Goodreads, so I eventually decided to check them out for myself :D

  23. Lizzy Skaggs

    August 28, 2012

    I was looking for a new series to read at Walmart (it’s the only place to buy books near me other than from the internet), and ended up just picking up Soul Screamers Volume 1 and read the back cover as we walked around, it seemed really cool.
    The next day I started reading it and couldn’t put it down. I ended up buying all the other soul screamers books, and borrowed my friend’s ebook to get the mini-stories :)

  24. Danielle Faber

    August 28, 2012

    I first found Prey! I was bored on a road trip with my family and bought a book at a gas station! You had the most interesting cover! From then on, I was hooked! Now I scour the city for them in release days :)

  25. laura

    August 28, 2012

    The first ever book I bought by the fabulous Rachel Vincent was Pride from the Shifters series, at my local (very small) book store, I didn’t realise at the time that it was part of a series, so when I got home and noticed (After reading the first chapter) I rushed out to buy the first two books so I could read the story from the onset. only problem with that at the time was my book store didn’t have any of the other books so i travel 9miles to get them. Now I am a Rachel Vincent bookaholic and couldn’t be happier :)

  26. Rose. P

    August 28, 2012

    I found your books through a friend of mine.

    Thanks for an awesome giveaway & good luck everyone!!!

  27. Ester Almeida

    August 28, 2012

    I found your books at a blog and at bookdepository.com

  28. William Edwards

    August 28, 2012

    I first saw an ad for your books in the November 2009 People magazine. The Twilight New Moon collectors magazine. The ad said, “Twilight fans will love it.” So i bought MSTT and have been addicted to your writing ever since. I still have the magazine wish i could post a picture of it here so you could see you were in People magazine.

  29. Kristie Matheson

    August 28, 2012

    I found your books by starting My Soul To Take from the library, where I instantly fell in love. I bought Soul Screamers Volume 1 shortly after that. I also took out Stray from the library. Got about a quarter of the way through and decided “Screw it!” and slowly buying that series too (when I have $ lol). I got the first 2 books of the Unbound series on a whim. Let’s just say I love your books!

  30. Jodie Pether

    August 28, 2012

    I was recommended to your books by my friend who loves your books. She knows me so well and knew I’d also love them. First books I read were the Shifters series and I soon progressed through your other books.

  31. Heather

    August 28, 2012

    My mother-in-law is a huge fan and recommended your books to me originally. What made me actually read them was you. I met you at a signing in Seattle last year & found you to be quite funny and super nice. I love the Soul Screamers series but Unbound is great too! I’m glad I found your books!

  32. Rachel R.

    August 28, 2012

    I first found your books at the library :) I picked up My Soul To Take in the YA section. That’s how I got hooked on the Soul Screamers series! I loved it so much that I bought them all :)

  33. Kathy Fusto

    August 28, 2012

    I was turned onto the STRAY series by my super fabulous book buddy Stevie (LOVED!!) and she feeds me the Soul Screamer books as she gets them!! I have recommended both series to my other book whore friends as is my duty to report awesome new reads! I spend alot of time using public transit and is awesome to lose myself to the worlds you create!!

  34. Jamie C

    August 28, 2012

    I first heard about your Soul Screamers series a few years ago through a book blog I love. They quickly became my favorite YA series (and I’ve read A LOT), and since then i’ve read everything else you’ve written!!! :)

  35. Veronika

    August 28, 2012

    I won my very first copy in a giveaway on one of my favorite blogs! I must lived under the rock, because I’ve never heard about the books before. After recieving my copy (My Soul To Take) I started reading immediately! I devoured the book in one sitting! Right after I finished I ordered all the other books from the series :) After SS I moved to the Shifters books than Unbound series, and to be honest I bought them without even reading the synopsis! I knew they’ll be equally amazing and I was right!!!

  36. Jessica P

    August 28, 2012

    I was flitting through Barnes and Noble when I came across a book about werecats(Stray) been hooked on your writing ever since.

  37. ashelynn hetland

    August 28, 2012

    I’m not entirely sure when I first heard about your books (maybe on Goodreads, or so?) but Rachel Clarke (Fiktshun) totally got me more excited to read the soul screamers series, and I never would have if she didn’t host the challenge.

  38. Jessica Tapia

    August 28, 2012

    If I am correct, the very first time I saw your books was by just browsing the Young Adult section of the library. They had My Soul to Save and I looked inside and realized it was the second book in the series. I tried looking for the first but they didn’t have it, so I ordered it off their online library system. After I got My Soul to Take, the rest as we would say is history. Thank you!

  39. Adriana C

    August 28, 2012

    I first saw the Soul Screamers series on Fiktshun´s blog.
    thanks for the giveaway.

  40. Hila

    August 28, 2012

    A good friend recommended me your books, and I thought- why not? so I gave it a try and LOVE it! :)

  41. smiling_ina

    August 28, 2012

    Oh, I cannot wait to see the cover for WAMS!!! I bet it’s just as stunningly beautiful as all the previous ones. So excited!!! :D

    I first heard of your books through Rachel from fiktshun and the YA Crush Tourney last year. Rachel did such an amazing job advocating for Tod, I just had to check out your books. Needless to say, I fell in love with them – and Tod!!! :D – right away. :)

  42. Sarah

    August 28, 2012

    I’m one of those losers that actually goes through the recommendations Amazon gives you. Your books kept popping up so I bought them. I’ve been addicted since.

  43. Monica P.

    August 28, 2012

    I found your book Stray while browsing a bookstore in upstate NY while on vacation. I loved it and have read everything else I could find by you. Best decision ever ;)

  44. Sarah M.

    August 28, 2012

    When I saw the Shifters series in the bookstore, they immediately caught my eye. After reading the cover blurb for Stray, I bought books 1-4 on the spot.

  45. Rachel Verna Shep

    August 28, 2012

    I discovered Stray in my local supermarket. I was rather shocked since it such a small town they usually never had anything supernatural. Read it, love it. Being a broke 15 year old, after some begging, I managed to get the other 2 books at the time in states, shipped out to me. Glad I did, but the series doesn’t look quite as good with the books being different sizes.

  46. starryeyedjen

    August 28, 2012

    I won a copy of My Soul to Steal when it was released, so of course I had to read the rest of the series up to that point. I’ve been addicted ever since. Even read the Shifters series after I got all caught up with Soul Screamers. :D

  47. Stephanie

    August 28, 2012

    I first found your books on amazon. When I started becoming a book worm, I used to use the kindle app for the iPod and your first Soul Screamers Novella — My Soul To Lose — was free. I think I read My Soul To Lose and My Soul To Take that first night. This solidified you and one of my favorite authors and I have now read every book and e-book you’ve published.

  48. Adeeb

    August 28, 2012

    I admit, I haven’t read any of your books yet, but they seem EXTREMELY unique, I know I HAVE TO read them :)
    Thanks for the opportunity

  49. Linda P

    August 28, 2012

    I want to say I found you on Deadline Dames after reading Keri Arthur and wanted to read something new. Pride was out, read it, but some did not make sense so I went back to the beginning. SO glad I did. I love your stories.

  50. Jessica S.

    August 28, 2012

    I remember browsing in Borders, and I think I saw Stray on an endcap. It was in romance and I was hesitant to read it because I do not like romances. Yet when reading the cover back I thought it sounded pretty good. Then I saw all the quotes on it from authors I already enjoyed reading and thought, okay maybe it won’t be so bad. I was just worried because I had picked up other paranormal books in the romance section that had wayyyyy too much sex in it for my liking.

    Best decision ever!

  51. Caitlin Robinson

    August 28, 2012

    Hello. I first saw your books in my amazon.uk recommendations I then went ahead and ordered the whole Shifters series and the Soul Screamers books, it was love at first sight! I’ve now started the Blood Bound series.

  52. jemma

    August 28, 2012

    I love all your books they are all amazing :D

  53. Jemzz

  54. Britta

  55. Chris Miller

    August 28, 2012

    I found Blood Bound while browsing the Urban Fantasy genre on Audible.com. I’m very impressed with the complexity of the plot and I’m looking forward to other gems in your “canon.”

  56. Caitlin Bursma

    August 28, 2012

    I was on my nook when I was just browsing threw the endless pages of books. I didn’t know what to do or read, then I came across Soul Screamers series. I read the title and wondered, hm, what could that be about. I opened up to view it, and I was instantly hooked. That is how I got addicted to your soul screamers series. I still am hooked.

    Please continue to write. I love you!

  57. Kat

    August 28, 2012

    I first read the first three of the SS (that how i started with you book four wasnt in the process of coming out yet) but I can’t remember how I came across buying them (When,Where,Why?) but as for your shifter series, I research for book with cats shifting concepts (loves cats) and I came across yours then check the back of SS books to see what else you have written then research again. I put the shiftere series on my Christmas list in 09 and birthday (wink wink December baby) then read like crazy! And needed to order the rest of the shifter books I didn’t received for the holiday.

  58. Nancy L.R

    August 28, 2012

    I found books during the first “YA Crush Tournament” last year. Tod was up against someone and it got me to look up the series. After I read the synopsis I ordered the first 4 books to the “Soul Screamers” series. I’ve been reading your books ever since. I actually recommend your books to people at the library or the people I know who read Lol, they just look at me like I’m crazy, but hey! they check out the books. :)

  59. bobby newman

    August 28, 2012

    My wife introduced me to them. I personally ran out of books to read so I started reading hers. I found they are really amazing as long as my hunting buddies do not find out lol.

  60. Lori B

    August 28, 2012

    After finishing other YA series, I was looking for a new series and found the novella, “My Soul to Lose” for free on Amazon for my kindle. I downloaded it and when I finished it, I was so mad that it was just a novella that I had to go get the rest of the series that was out at the time (I think through book 3). Since then, I have been anxiously awaited the next installment of the Soul Screamer series and started your Unbound series in the meantime because I keep going through Rachel Vincent withdrawal. The whole Shifter series is on my wishlist and you constantly take all the money out of my book budget!

  61. Gabby

    August 28, 2012

    I actually found Soul Screamers at the library&I accidently checked out My Soul to Save first…
    Then I got the right one&have been hooked since x)

  62. Jui Walimbe

    August 28, 2012

    I came across the Soul Screamers series on Goodreads and was hooked. Cant wait for With All My Soul!

  63. Jimena Inda

    I was looking through Amazon and new releases when I stumbled upon Stray

  64. Viki S.

    August 28, 2012

    I first found you with PREY on someones blog. I’m sorry I don’t remember what blog it was :(.

  65. Sue Lukenbaugh (@suepafly)

    August 28, 2012

    I first heard about your books during a Kim Harrison book signing. She was asked to recommend some authors and you were the first one, and the one she gushed the most about. I picked up Stray that day and have been hooked ever since, though I admit sometimes I’ve had a love/loathe relationship with your characters :) But I have reviewed most of your books on Goodreads and museled.com because they are pretty phenomenal!

  66. Leah White

    August 28, 2012

    Your series, the Shifters, was recommended to me by my aunt. I borrowed the first 3 from her and finished them by the end of the week. I immediately went to Amazon.com to purchase the rest of the series. When it ended I was distraught, but it was exactly perfect for the story line.
    From there I researched you and found out about the up coming Blood Bound release and the Soul Screamers series. I downloaded them all and have been biting my nails and waiting for the next ones to come ever since.
    You are an awesomely-amazing author. You rock my brain cells!
    Thanks, Leah

  67. Missy

    August 28, 2012

    I found your book at walden books in a section that said local authors, right before I moved to Arkansas with my favorite mistake. I liked that Rogue took place in places I was familiar with. I was hooked after reading Rogue but a bit distraught when realized it was the second novel. I own all shifters series except alpha. I am extremely interested in soul screamers series. I have a 13 month old daughter that doesn’t allow me a lot of reading time. I have many books on my kindle that want me to read them! You, Sharan Sala, and James Patterson are my favorite authors!

  68. Vicky

  69. Sabrena

    August 28, 2012

    I can’t recall exactly how I found out about your books, it was probably through a bookstore crawl – I’ve found many authors that way…

  70. Maggie

    August 28, 2012

    I actually heard about your books through YA Sisterhood’s Crush Tournament last year. I loved your books and voted for Tod ever since(:

  71. Ashling Ciara

    August 28, 2012

    I found your Shifters series through Amazon. They were recommended after I bought some of Keri Arthurs books and now I hooked!

    Can’t wait to read the last Unbound book in the series.

  72. Shanna Roberson

    August 28, 2012

    I found you through Audible. I want a new series read by Amanda Ronconi and BAM! I fell madly in love with your writing. <3 I will be so sad when this series comes to an end but I can't wait to see what else you come up with! :) Love your books!

    Shanna R.

  73. Anubha

    August 28, 2012

    i found about your books on Fiktshun while randomly surfing the book blogs… :)

  74. Rachel

    August 28, 2012

    Short story made longer… It was actually Amazon recommends. And it was before I started blogging. I was looking for something non-vampire related in YA. I was just getting into stories about angels, though I was skeptical, and then thought the idea of banshees sounded a bit different.

    I had no real knowledge of the YA community, I had only read one or two author blogs as I didn’t like hanging out online at all, and so all my decisions were based upon what I found searching on Amazon.

    And I was also quite skeptical about banshees until I met Nash and his swirly eyes. So I immediately bought the next two books (only 3 were available at the time) and read them back-to-back. And suffered the wait until MStSteal (though it wasn’t as long as I started blogging and grabbed it on NetGalley).

  75. Lothfleur

    August 28, 2012

    It was either from a blog or amazon, browsing for Harlequin Teen books, I can’t remember it was quite some time ago now !

  76. Serena

    August 29, 2012

    I actually found your blog first, via The Deadline Dames, which is one of my favourtie blogs. Then I saw the first Soul Screamers omnibus at Chapters and bought it :D

  77. Kai Charles

    August 29, 2012

    I found you through Kim Harrison’s blog. She had a link to a chapter sampler for Stray. I bought stray and every book you’ve published since!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  78. Angie

    August 29, 2012

    I discovered your books when I was looking through the kindle store and saw that the novella, Reaper, was free. I bought Reaper and read it the next day. Ever since, I’ve been in love with Tod and Soul Screamers.

  79. Sandra Schlosser

    August 29, 2012

    My daughter recommended your books. I was captured from the first word!

  80. AHC

    August 29, 2012

    One free novella and I was hooked for life!! I happened upon My Soul to Lose while browsing Kindle books on Amazon. I cannot tell you how happy I was to find it because it led me to the rest of your writing! I became addicted immediately and have since gobbled up anything and everything with your name attached to it. I know you put a lot of work into your stories and I promise it is appreciated!!!!!

  81. KayDee

    August 29, 2012

    I couldn’t find any books to read when I found Stray, a month before Alpha came out, on Amazon. I’ve read all of your books I could find in the meantime. I can’t wait to found what happens next :)

  82. Catherine H

    August 29, 2012

    I first found your first shifters book in 2010 in a book shop i used to work in. I’m a massive Kelley Armstrong fan so as soon as I saw a quote from her on the front cover it was sold!! Can’t wait for your new books!! : )

  83. Lis Carcamo

    August 29, 2012

    The first time I knew about your books was because I was searching beautiful covers, and I saw the one for My soul to take, of course I loved it, but I didn´t know anything about the book till a dear friend of mine started to talk about how great Tod was.
    Days before, I fell for him, as well!

  84. Kayla

    August 29, 2012

    I was at Walmart and saw the Soul Screamers Vol. 1. I read the back of it and was hooked! i LOVE this series it’s absolutely amazing!!! Your amazing Rachel :)

  85. Irayda Quezada

    August 29, 2012

    I found your books on Jean book nerd’s blook. She had done an interview and giveaway on her blog..

  86. Stella (Ex Libris)

    August 29, 2012

    I first heard about your books on blogs and after the reviews, praises and discussions I witnessed I went and ordered all 6 books of your Shifter series without even having read 2 sentences written by you, that’s how much faith I had in fellow book lovers’ recommendation and they were right! I LOVE your writinga nd devoured your Shifter series! (going through the Soul Screamers series right now and can’t wait to start the Unbound trilogy :-D)

    I didn’t like to read much when I was younger. Then all the twilight hype started and I needed more when I was finished with all those books. So I did a Google search and came up with you. I started with the soul screamers and didn’t stop til I read all of your books which took me almost 2 weeks. To me, you have been one of the best authors I’ve had the pleasure of enjoying ever, and I look forward to anything else you have to throw at up:) ps, would luv to see another shifters book:)

    I stumbled across the Shifter books on amazon back in 2007 or so, but for some reason I didn’t buy them (I had to refrain from buying tons of books that I wanted because I had very little money to spend on them. I’m reading Stray right now though). Then I discovered the Soul Screamers last summer when Tod was up for the YA Sisterhood Crush Tournament and really liked the snippets you posted. I knew I had to check this out. So when Fiktshun announced Soul Screamers Reading Challenge, I had just bought the first omnibus – it was the perfect opportunity to catch up with the whole series, and I had a blast :)

    I also have another, kinda embarrassing question. During the BIW chat a month ago I won a yet-to-be-designed mug, but I forgot to write the email to claim the prize (first because I was nervous about contacting No 1 and then because life happened and I forgot). Have I forfeited that prize or could I still claim it? ^^” I’m really sorry!

    Usually when I’m bored I wander into the Chapters (Canada’s B&N?) and look around, pick up random (pretty) books, read the back… I noticed My Soul to Take and it sounded awesome so I bought it, read it in a day and went back the next day to buy the other two that were out!! I kept my self busy in between with Shifters and Unbound hehe :D

    I was actually referred by a book seller at Barnes and Noble. I had a book from Kim Harrisons’ hallow series and recommended Prey to me and after reading the back cover figured I’d give it a shot and I’ve been hooked ever since!

    August 29, 2012

    When I had first started branching out into urban fantasy, I had put all the urban fantasy novels I owned into Amazon, so it could recommend other similar novels to me, and Stray was one of them! I absolutely fell in love with Faythe and all the other characters in the Shifters world, and have been reading your novels ever since! Your imagination is incredible, and I am so looking forward to see what you bring us in the future! :)

    August 29, 2012

    I was sitting at my computer, bored out of my mind, and searching the Harlequin website for some interesting reads. While searching the adult section of the website I happened upon Rogue and, after reading the preview, I purchased it and the rest of the available books in the series. Then I found the Soul Screamers series and Iv’e been hooked from that day forward.

    My daughter actually recommended them to me! They are all so enjoyable!

    August 29, 2012

    Hey i started reading your books when one of my close friend suggested them to me, so i bought SOUL SCREAMERS VOLUME .1 and tore though it in a day. then i bought the rest until IF I DIE, then i had to wait until BEFORE I WAKE came out. this was during finals week so i had to force myself to stop reading and study. I would love to read more of your books but sadly i’m broke a lot of the time :P but i love the the soul screamer =D <3

  95. Liza @ Reading with ABC

    I first found your Soul Screamer series through book blogs (now I have one as well) and fell in love with them :)

  96. Amy @ Book Loving Mom

    August 29, 2012

    I wish I lived in Texas!! I found your Soul Screamers series browsing through my nook library. After I bought and read the first few, I immediately searched for more of your books and found the Shifters series and promptly bought them all. I read the whole series in just over 3 days I think.

  97. Jen Smith (@jendsmit)

    August 29, 2012

    I first found Soul Screamers through a Buddy Read with a bunch of friends on Goodreads!

    We read through book 4 as a group – it was so much fun!! And that’s where I first found your books and haven’t stopped reading them since <3

    I was searching on google for authors similar to Kelley Armstrong and her Women of the Otherworld series, when Faythe and the Shifter series came up.

  99. Wendy

    August 29, 2012

    I actually found your novels via Goodreads. Quite a few people were praising your Soul Screamers series and I knew I had to give it a try. Instantly fell in love and couldn’t help reading your other novels =D

    August 29, 2012

    Hmmm, it was so long ago I dont even remember! LOL
    I think I may have found your Soul Screamer series through Goodreads. I read those and loved them, then I went on to reading the Shifters series and also loved them! It’s funny because I dont usually read adult books; I’ve read some and they’re just not for me. And yet, I read your adult stuff and I love it! I’m just weird like that ;)

  101. Valerie Long

    August 29, 2012

    I found you by way of searching for paranormal romance and supernatural romance books. I’ve been wanting to read all of your books for a while but haven’t gotten any yet but plan to do so soon! =) If I were to win I would choose Blood Bound UK from the prize book list. =)

  102. Heather

    August 29, 2012

    I found your books because Rachel (Fiktshun) and Jamie (Two Chicks) wouldn’t stop talking about them on twitter. I finally had to tweetbutt and ask what books they were talking about.

  103. Robin Keck

    August 29, 2012

    I was browsing the library with my daughter helping her find a book when I saw the spine for My Soul to Take. I grabbed it to read the back cover, found it so interesting that I grabbed the next two in line (because they only had those three at the time) and checked them out. I had all three read in two days! I’ve been hooked on your books ever since.

  104. Fizza Mir

    August 29, 2012

    I was looking for good books in a public library last year, and read My Soul to Take’s summary. It sounded amazing! So right then, I borrowed the first 3 books. I finished them in 2 days! So I went back to the library, and borrowed every single Soul Screamer series there was left! And I waited literally FOREVER for Before I Wake this summer, and marked my calendar for the release date!! The book was already ordered, and there were like 10 people on hold for it, but when I got it, I finished it in 5 hour’s–non stop! I can’t say how much I love the Soul Screamer series, and looking forward to reading the final book, With All My Soul! Your an amazing author Rachel!!! Love yahhh<333 :)
    P.S. My brother got addicted to Soul Screamers because of me, and he usually doesn't like fiction(;

    I was very late to the party. ;) I found the Soul Screamers series around the end of this past June. I was browsing on Amazon looking for something new to read and found the SS omnibus for like $6. The synopsis sounded intriguing so I bought it. I couldn’t stop reading until I had all the books and novellas in the series. I have also bought and listened to all the audiobooks available, this series is just that awesome! I love your writing and can’t wait to read WAMS!! :D

  108. Rich

    August 29, 2012

    Audible ran a sale on “Stray” shortly after “Rogue” came out so I picked it up and was hooked. When they offered “My Soul to Lose” for free I thought I would try it even though I’m not a fan of a lot of teen fiction. I still sometimes cringe at the teen elements (I never want to go back to high school) but I eagerly await every book and highly recommend them to both my teen and adult friends.

    As a side note I hope someday you’re struck with inspiration for another story in the Shifters universe. Faythe’s story may be done but you introduced so many other characters whose stories were just beginning!

  109. Sam

    August 29, 2012

    I first discovered the Shifters series thanks to a college roommate who had one of the books laying around and I picked it up thinking that it looked interesting. For the Soul Screamers series I saw them in the grocery store and then borrowed them from the library. I loved them so much that I had to buy them. Now I recommend them to all of my friends looking for something to read.

  110. Susan S.

    August 29, 2012

    I found the second book in the shifters series browsing the store, and it caught my interest because of it being about a werecat which I hadn’t read before. I read that fairly quickly and had to get the rest in the series.

  111. Maggie

    August 29, 2012

    I randomly found it in a Bookshop at a airport in Washington. I was looking for some books I could read on the plane. And I stumbled onto Soul Screamers. So I bought it. It was only three weeks ago! The next week after that I went to a bookshop and bought the two next book. And I read both of them in a matter of days. Unfortunately the last two books cant be found in my country, so I have to buy them online. Which is a pity, I really love your books!

    I’m such an avid reader since childhood that for me, you can never have enough books! I’m a regular customer at Chapters/Indigo, the Canadian version of Barbes & Noble, and was first introduced to your Shifters series by one of the staff at the bookstore. I bought the whole series in a heartbeat and boy was I glad I did! I absolutely LOVE that series! Thank you for the opportunity and wishing you continued success!

  114. Lacey T

    August 29, 2012

    I go to the library all the time and I was just browsing when I saw your Soul Screamers books! That was when the first 4 books of the series was already out :)

    August 29, 2012

    Well it all started when I bought kiss me deadly and I fell in love with some of the stories and was ok with some of them. Your story fearless was one of the ones I fell in love with. After I finished the book I looked up all the authors of the stories I loved and that’s when I dicovered soulscreamers, I bought the first volume and love it and now I can’t wait for the second volume

  116. Jennifer @ Some Like It Paranormal

    August 29, 2012

    I first heard about the series on goodreads. There was a lot of talk about sexy reaper named Tod that I would like! I picked up the first book at the library and fell in love with Tod and have been a fan every since!

  117. Louise

    August 29, 2012

    I found the Shifters series while browsing on Amazon shortly after I got my Kindle. Devoured the whole series. Read the free read for the bean sidhe, have the omnibus of the first books but haven’t gotten around to reading them yet. :-) Keep drooling over the pretty covers though.

    I found the Shifters series on Amazon about a year after getting my kindle. Was my favorite series, the main character was the person I wanted to be. I bought the whole series at one time and do not regret it :)

  121. Melissa

    August 29, 2012

    Amazon recommendations. I’m a big fan of the Mercy Thompson series and amazon suggested Shifters. I bought the first one and it took me almost a year and several re-reads to look past my hatred of Marc and appreciate the rest of the story. While I never fell in love with Shifters I enjoyed them enough to get Soul Screamers and Unbound and wham: LOVE AT FIRST CHAPTER :)

  122. Joy

    August 29, 2012

    I was actually just browsing through my library when I first saw My Soul to Take and I thought the synopsis was really interesting…. and once I started the first book, I was HOOKED. :)

    A friend was reading your Shifters series and posting updates on Facebook. She was enjoying them so I had to give them a try too. The rest is history hehe.

    Hi, my friend and I found you years ago, when Borders was still in business ,we would always go to see which books came out and Theresa found you and said “what do you think of this one?”
    And I read the back, likes it and we bought it, that was the first book of the sifters (we share books),
    Since then we read all your books!

  126. Melody Colyer

    August 29, 2012

    My best friend Jessica told me
    About the
    Soul
    Screamer series and said they were awesome, so I started
    Reading them. I love them, especially Tod. :) For a surprise for Jessica I
    Got her stray and we both just love that series also!!!
    Thanks for writing such awesome books, that are very relate able, but
    Take u away from reality!!!
    You r awesome!!!!

  127. Angie H

    August 29, 2012

    I first found your Soul Screamer series via amazon. The prequel to the series, My Soul to Lose, was being offered as a freebie at the time. I read it and just recently came back to the series and just devoured them. I am anxiously awaiting WAMS! Thanks so much.

  128. Anna Wood-Gaines

    August 29, 2012

    Thank goodness Goodreads created a recommendation page! :) That’s how I first heard of your Soul Screamers series, and then next time I was in a book store, I grabbed your first book! Then I of course HAD to buy the rest of the series because it’s so amazing!!!

  129. Heather Alexander

    August 29, 2012

    I discovered your books when I was a bookseller at Borders books. Since the store has closed I have discovered a lot of wonderful indie authors through blogs. I think it is a fantastic and obviously free venue for them to promote. I don’t have any bookstores nearby at all anymore so I have been buying indie books recommended by blogs and also my favorite authors, who I already followed. I think it just depends on the blogs and what you are looking for. Love all your books.

  130. Brandi

    August 29, 2012

    Two years ago I got a brand new Kobo for my 30th birthday, as I was browsing the Kobo site for something to read, I came across the Shifters series (well, books 1, 2 and 4… for some reason 3 and 5 weren’t on Kobo at that time, but I found them at BooksOnBoard.com – yay!) I devoured the series and was ranting and raving to my BFF that she HAD to read them. At the same time she was telling me all about the Soul Screamers series that I just HAD to read… needless to say you have two huge fans in the two of us and we tell others all the time that you are on the “must read” list =)

  131. Delphina

    I found you on quote day on Paranormal Reads Face Book Page. Someone posted quotes from your Soul series.

  132. Jen K

    I found them in Shoppers Drug Mart, everything about My Soul To Take captured my attention and I’ve been in love with all your work ever since!

  133. Kimberley S

    August 29, 2012

    I’d noticed the Soul Screamers books in Kmart and Big W but didn’t know much about the series, or you at that point. It wasn’t until I spotted the Italian cover of ‘Stray’ on Goodreads while researching good UF books, that I noticed it had the same model as the Australian cover of Jessica Shirvington’s ‘Embrace’. I did a little tweeting to a friend and YOU replied and I thought “This author takes the time to reply to random books fans who don’t even know her. I NEED to read her books.” So I did. I went out and bought all Shifters and Soul Screamers books purely because you tweeted me. I’m SO glad I did <3

  134. Sue Lemasters

    August 29, 2012

    The first book by Rachel Vincent was the Shifter series. Could not wait for the next book and read cover to
    cover in very little time. I have the Alpha book and read only a chapter at a time so I won’t finish too soon.
    I have enjoyed this series very much. Would there be chance of an update in the future? I have a very
    vivid imagination, but would llike to see your take on Faythe and Mark’s future. I found your books at a local
    chain that has since gone out of business. Please keep writing and I will keep reading. I have read 2 of
    the Soul Screamers and plan to read the rest. Thanks for writing such good quality books.

  135. Kristin S

    I was first introduced to your amazing books by the Awesome Fiktshun, and have now read every single book you have written:-) Can’t wait for the next one!!!

  136. Katy

    August 29, 2012

    I began to read the Soul Screamers series because a friend lend it to me and I’m happy she did because it’s one of my favorite series now (=^_^=)

  137. Ang from OZ

    August 29, 2012

    I heard about your books on Gena’s Showalter blog. She was announcing the release the “Stray”
    I read stray in one sitting! I have recently gone back and re-read the whole series again!

    Thanks for the contest Rachel!

  138. Mallory Thorpe

    August 29, 2012

    I discovered you when I was on GoodReads blog searching for a new series after reading the Fever series by Karin Marie Moning. She had rave reviews about your soul screamer series and the shifter series. Now, I’ve read ALL your books multiple times, own them all and even some extra copies on my Kindle! Lol But I’ve found finding books and authors through blogs is easier and funner than sending me in a bookstore (it takes HOURS to get me out, even if know what I want)

  139. Esther

    August 29, 2012

    I actually didn’t see this until you posted on Facebook about the lack of mention of blogs in these comments, but here’s my entry: I found you through a blog! I don’t remember which, but possibly the Story Siren? Someone had a contest of some sort, which included liking you on Facebook, so not knowing anything about you, I did, and since you post so often, I got to know your style and then went out and got a couple of your books. That’s my story – total online blogging and social media. Hope that makes you fell better!

  140. Kerri W

    August 29, 2012

    I discovered Stray by browsing Books A Million in Tallahassee, FL. The first two sentences made me smile reeeaaaallly wide and go “Oh THIS is going to be AWESOME!” and it totally was. Everyone that sees the book on my shelf and picks it up agrees that those are two of the best opening lines EVER.

  141. Sheila

    August 29, 2012

    My sister called me and told me about an awesome shifter book she just read about cats. So she sent me the book. She mailed it to me, and I finished it that night. The next morning I was hitting up B&N, and Borders to buy the rest.

  142. Tyawna

    August 29, 2012

    August 29, 2012

    I think I found you in the “recommended” section after I bought a book online through Barnes and Noble. It had “Stray” as recommended for me and I read the book teaser and I looked really good…So…I bought it! And here we are. :)

  144. Karen Cassey Manalo

    My son, who was two at the time, grabbed a bunch of books of the shelve at our library and as I was putting them back I noticed Stray in the pile. I read the back and have been in love with your work ever since. Thank you for making such great books.

  146. Elaine G

    August 29, 2012

    I found your books through an anthology.I loved the story.So i went and googled you then saw the Shifters series and bought the ones that were already out.

  147. Sarah Bednash

    August 29, 2012

    I found the Soul Screamers series on goodreads. I was looking through my friends book recommendations and I saw this beautiful cover (covers are what usually catch my eye), and the title intrigued me also. “My Soul To Take.” Then I clicked on it, and read the synopsis. Thinking this series would be really great, I went to chapters and got a copy. I was in love from the first page of that book. I wasn’t even finished the first book before I went back to chapters and got all the other available copies. ‘Before I Wake’ wasn’t out yet, so I had to wait 2 months before I found out what happened in the next book. Those 2 months were agony. I was so excited when ‘Before I Wake’ finally came out! I was jumping for joy. But when I finished I still had to wait. 2013 can not come fast enough. Im so very excited for ‘With all my Soul’.
    This series is brilliant. I have never read anything like it before. I am a writer myself. And one day I hope to write something as beautiful and unique as the Soul Screamers series.

    Thank you for sharing this series with us, Ms. Vincent. And for giving me the opportunity to enter your world.

    Always,
    Sarah Bednash.

  148. Patty Quintas

  149. Lindsey

    August 29, 2012

    It’s been a little while since I found the Soul Screamers series, but I’m pretty sure I found it through Shelfari. When I first found paranormal YA books, I spent a lot of time on Shelfari browsing through groups and lists of similar books. I still think reading Soul Screamers was one of the best decisions I ever made! :)

  150. Tracey Goodridge

    August 29, 2012

    Hi Rachel I found your books at my local dymocks I wanted something to read and one of the staff recommended your soul screamers I’ve read them all even got the ebooks and since then I’ve read unbound series so far and the shifters series I’ve read neally all your books and can’t wait to read more I’ve loved them all

  151. Nic

    August 29, 2012

    I found “If I Die” in a bookshop and the back synopsis sucked me in straight away…
    Then I realised it was the latest in a series (Never To Sleep hadn’t been written then – well it wasn’t published!) so of course I had to jump on Book Depository to order all the books previously then I practically DEVOURED The Shifter Series.

    So to date, I own every one of your series and YAY – you’re awesome!

  152. Brianna R

    August 29, 2012

    I first found your books through a link on Keri Arthur’s site, I’d finished all her books that were out at the time and was looking for something else (i’m really picky with books) Stray caught my I so I went and hunted it down. It took 1.5 days to read then I went and got the next two that were out.

    Since I have read every book you hav and I’m even one of these people who pre-order so I know I’ve got my copy. Love your work and the fact that when I read them it feels like I’m there with the characters

  153. Tasha

    August 29, 2012

    My best friend from freshman year was reading your books. She REALLY wanted someone to talk about them with, so I said I’d give them a try. I’ve been addicted to your books ever since. :D You’re amazing!

  154. Liz

    I found your soul screamers series at the library and love how you sucked me in from book #1 to waiting for your new one. After becoming friends on fb I find you more interesting. I want to read your blogs and here your truly funny stories of your accident prone life. I think your hilarious and should seriously think about writing a comic style book. Your very talented and no matter how I stumbled on you, I’m so so glad I did. Please never give up your day job, cause your so good at.

      Oh thank you! Since you mentioned that you like funny books, have you tried Rosemary Clement-Moore? She’s one of the funniest people/writers I know.

    August 29, 2012

    My dad bought Stray for me one day while he was out shopping. He knows the kind of books that I like and thought that it would interest me. He was absolutely right. I fell in love the Shifter series, and once it ended, I found and fell in love with the Soul Screamers series as well.

  161. Marvil

    August 29, 2012

    I have this friend who’s crazy about your books, I always admired those beautiful covers but I don’t know why I never told my friend to let me borrow your books. I always said to myself “maybe tomorrow”. Some day after reading one of her posts on her blog about Soul Screamers series, I decided I had to start reading your books. I did it and now I want to keep reading them!! Thank you for writing!! I love your books so much :)

  162. Georgeana

    August 29, 2012

    I first found the Soul Screamers series from reading the first book at the library. As soon as I read it I knew I wanted to get the rest of the series as my own and when this happens, you know I love the book because most of the time I prefer just waiting for my library to purchase the books and then borrowing them.

  163. Spav

    August 29, 2012

    To be honest, I don’t remember. In my defence, it’s been 5 years since Stray came out, which is when I read it first.

  164. Shaliesha

    August 29, 2012

    I actually found stray while wondering around a BJs with my cousin. We forgot the BJs card and I had to have a woman before me swipe her card so I could get the book. It was the only thing we bought and it was completely worth it!

    I first came across your book when I was reading the anthology, Kiss Me Deadly. I read that book because I wanted to read the short story by Becca Fitzpatrick in there and when I read your story, I fell in love with Sabine and decided to read your Soul Screamers series.

    My Best Friend found your Soul Screamers Volume 1 book, bought it, but never read it. I found it her bedroom when I was looking for a GREAT book to read. Low and behold the best book/series was staring me in my face for the last few months!!! I was immediately amazed and delighted by how the book intrigued me and I COULD NOT put it down!!! I finished it in a day and went and bought the rest!!! And now here I am salivating over the release of the next book!! I CAN NOT WAIT! SO EXCITED!!

    I have never been a big reader, I read the Harry Potter series because of my impatience to wait for the rest of the movies but other than that I was never a reader. Then I got a smart phone and my dad insisted that I get the kindle app on my phone. I was looking through free books and found the first novella from the soul screamer series. I was completely hooked and continued to buy the first book in the series and then the second. I fell in love with your characters and plot and couldn’t get enough. I soon found the shifter series and you became by one and only favorite author. I am extremely loyal and will love every book you come out with. I own every single one and I even have a signed copy of if I die(my favorite) when I met you in Seattle last year. My favorite moment in life besides my wedding day. Haha. I will mourn the ending of thsoul screamer series when it ends along with unbound. I also made my best friend read your books and she’s an addict as well although she is very angry with you about nash, she can’t even say his name because she cries when she thinks about it. So not only are you my favorite author of all time but you opened my mind to all the amazing other authors out there. I am a book fanatic now and I owe that to you. I now have over 350 books on my kindle and I have countdowns for all your upcoming releases. So thank you for your wonderful writing and imagination that allowed me to fall in love with books.

    How did I discover your books….. I own a nook (love it) and the nook has a Discover button that lets me see the next in a series, other books by the author and other authors in the same genre. I don’t remember what I was originally reading, but the important part is my DISCOVER BUTTON, which led me straight to you.
    Thank you Thank you Thank you

    I first found Pride in my favourite local bookstore. I thought the blurb was interesting and the cover was awesome the Cover Model who posed as Faythe looked kickass. I snapped it up as i wanted a good new read. It wasn’t till i got home i realised it wasn’t the first in the series. No one had the first book but i grabbed the second one and i got a surprise when my hubby bought Stray for me for my birthday which was only a few weeks later. He knew i was looking for it so he picked it up after work. And i fell in love with the Shifter world and then read Blood Bound and the first few Soul Screamers. now I am addicted to all books by you and i reccomend them to my friends and family, I’ve even suggested your books to other customers when I’ve been perusing my local bookstore. You’re an awesome writer and you can be sure il be reading and most likely preordering whatever you write next!

    I was on vacation and was browsing through the book section in Kmart when I first saw your Soul Screamers series- that was 2 years ago, I think. Then of course, I had to read your Shifters series, then I’m planning on reading the Unbound series when the 3rd book is almost out. :)

    hi i found your books initially through a search on amazon reviews and then my sister also highly recomended your books to me so thats when i picked the shifters series and fell in love with them, first series of books to ever make me cry i really felt her pain, and have been reading all your other series since.

    In 2008, a friend who was book blogging at the time, shoved Stray in my face and told me I would inhale it. She was right, and the Shifter series remains a favorite to this day. Thank you for your emotional, creative writing! It is always a good day when a Rachel Vincent book is on the to-do list. :)

    I found your books while grocery shopping with my mom at BJs. Whenever we go there, I go straight to the book section and stay there until my mom is finished shopping. My Soul to Save happened to catch my eye. I read it when I got home then ordered My Soul to Take since it was the first book.

    Blog. But what really made me interested was the word of mouth on Facebook (at first, and then Twitter) everyone seemed to loved your books so that made curious. After that, what really sold me was the first YA Crush Tourney.
    I still haven’t read any of your books because of where I live, but as soon as I get the chance I’ll read every single one of them, that’s for sure. With a different audience (YA and adult) and all I hear are great things about them, so of course I want to read them :)

    I was super lucky and found stray at a Walmart in Mississippi. There wasn’t very many awesome things about living in Mississippi but finding the shifter series was one of them.

    i found the soul screamer series when our teacher made us read one of the 3: my soul to take, iron king and inside out, luckily i was given MSTT. loved it and started to buy the rest of the series. can’t wait for the WAMS cover to be revealed!!

    Me, my sister and one of her best friends have an improvised book circle that sort of grew up around your books (the Shifters) to start with, but that now embraces all kinds of genres. I’m really grateful for your books, because this is a great way to get to read plenty MORE books than just my own – we all have access to eachothers books! I can strongly recommend it..! ;-D

    I came across the shifters books while looking through all the nook books on Barnes and Noble’s website and pretty much was in love from then on : )

    August 30, 2012

    I found that everywhere I searched for “the best paranormal romance” books, on google and on library sites, your book Stray kept popping up. then it stated to pop up under my if you liked …. then you will like…. queries. I had it on my extensive to read list for a while, but the sheer number of times it kept crossing my path made me pause and reconsider – perhaps this will be my next read? Once I read the first one, I settled in and kept reading. I love coming into a series after it has been out for a while or after the last book is published. You were wonderful at world building and I loved to be enveloped in that world from start to finish. Thank you for all the hard work you do. I look forward to reading more of your works in the future.
    Peace

    I found your books through the recommendations on my E Reader! It recommended If I Die, it sounded incredible so I googled the rest of the series and read them all! Then I read the shifter series and Blood Bound! and am addicted to pretty much everything you write!

    August 30, 2012

    I found one of your Shifter books in the library, I can’t remember which one it was now as this was a while ago, but I think it was Prey. I didn’t know anything about them at the time, and I read it not realising it was part of a series. I loved it so much I immediately looked up the series and read them all :) It’s one of my fave UF series :)

  197. Rahisa

    Um… This is hard, I can’t remember where exactly I found out about your books… But it was definitely browsing.

    I was new to the whole books-blogs-authors-publishers-bloggers-twitter-facebook-how to get books in my country- thing.
    And I was trying to find more books to read other than
    -Twilight saga.
    -Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
    -Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater &
    -The Body Finder by Kim Derting…

    I think I was either browsing goodreads or a facebook page, the only one I knew about at the moment, that reviewed books and stuff… I saw the cover… the tittle… And I was sold.
    I HAD to get your books somehow…

    I didn’t know the YA was new to you, didn’t know you had previously published another series, let alone know it was for a complete different audience.

    You had only 3 of SS novels published at that time… So… the hard part became making them come here.
    Forget amazon… I didn’t even know it existed! T___T #fail
    So I begged the bookstore…
    VIOLA!

    Your #1Fan-Reader from El Salvador… <333333333 I can easily say… I'm your #1 in all latin america :D
    ~smug smile~ hehe Just kidding…

    But yeap, it was definitely browsing the web.

    I picked up Stray, because Audible.com had recommended to me. I fell in love with the sample, and downloaded it right away. Intensity, passion, and a storyline I couldn’t put down, kept me reading the series. If you guys haven’t checked out Rachel’s books on audiobook format, you’re really missing out!

    Hey! I found Soul Screamers at the Library near my house. The titles & covers just drew my attention :]] I loved the fact that it was something different. Plus I’ve never read any other series that were about Banshee. You’re an amazing writer. I get so caught up in all of your stories, short & long. Thanks for introducing me to so many awesome characters, especially Todd!

  205. Taylor

    August 31, 2012

    I actually found out about your series through my Kindle. Amazon was giving away free eBook copies of My Soul to Lose for a little while, so I downloaded it and absolutely loved it. Then I went to my library to get My Soul to Take and almost imploded when I found out that they didn’t carry the rest of the series. So I bought them for myself and got all of my friends addicted too.

  206. Marie

    August 31, 2012

    I found a book and your Shifter books were recommended with them and then, while waiting for another Shifter book to come out, I decided to check out your profile and see if you had done any YA books.

    September 2, 2012

    I saw the Shifters series at the store BUT it was the Soul Screamers series that actually got me to buy and read. I saw the compendium of the first 2 books with the short story at Target at the end of 2011 (awesome price to start a series!). On top of that, Fiktshun was having the Soul Screamers Read-a-Long so I would have incentive to read them all. And you were so gracious with support, chats and giveaway prizes I was so impressed. Oh, and you are a very talented writer – I love your character’s voices the best!

    Thanks for the great giveaway opportunity :)
