Celebrating & Giving Away Free eBooks (Contest Closed)

BREATHE recently received three wonderful reviews. I try not to get too focused on reviews for fear both the good and bad will mess with my head, but I have to say, I was thrilled to see such lovely comments. (oh, and don’t get me wrong. I love to SEE reviews for my work. Just not sure authors like me should read his/her own if they are going to interrupt the writing. Reviews are for the readers.)

A Best Book by Tuberose at Whipped Cream Reviews
“This is one of the best books I’ve read since I started reading m/m books. Sloan Parker does it again with her sophomore release. Her characters, Lincoln and Jay, are so well written that you fall in love with them and are cheering them on towards their happily ever after despite the odds against them.”

A Recommended Read from Doug at Dark Divas Reviews
“…to place two characters who have such a major event tying them together and holding them apart at the same time…it was captivating. And without giving anything away, I’ll simply state that this talented author has delivered. She has managed to create both as sympathetic, sexual, and lovable. Their relationship becomes something you not only want but need to see succeed.”

A Top Pick from DH Starr at The Romance Reviews
“The characters, their issues, and the action was organic, flowing beautifully from one scene to the next. The fact Ms. Parker has managed this with a large cast of characters and fast-paced movement is nothing short of masterful writing.”

The Sloan-is-celebrating GIVEAWAY

In celebration of this good news, I’d like to give a little something back to the universe…so I’m giving away free ebooks today. Here’s how it works…

  • Comment on my blog post to enter the giveaway stating which of my ebooks (MORE or BREATHE) you’d like to win.
  • FIVE of the commenters will be randomly selected to win their choice.
  • The ebooks are available in winner’s choice of these formats: PDF, EPUB, PRC, LIT, or HTML.
  • Giveaway ends at 11:59 PM EST on Saturday, January 22, 2011.
  • Please don’t put any links in your comment. Sometimes those get caught in the spam filter.
  • Do include your email address in the Email form field.

I’ll contact (via email) the winning five on Sunday.

Good luck!

Update – To all who’ve entered the giveaway:

First off, thank you to those of you who already purchased one or both of my ebooks. As I have more releases, I hope you have a chance to win a future contest.

Looks like there are 18 entries in the giveaway. Since this was a quick weekend contest and you were all good enough to stop by and share which book you are interested in (and since I’m still in such a great mood), I’m going to say “forget the five” and am sending everyone who entered one free book. Look for an email from me verifying which book you want and asking you for a preferred format. Congratulations to all. If you don’t get an email from me by Monday morning, feel free to contact me in case I missed you or the email got lost.

I hope you enjoy the story!

  1. Breathe certainly deserves great reviews! I’ve just read it thought it was wonderful. I haven’t got More yet but I would love to read it as it sounds excellent as well.

  2. Oh I want to win, can you be bribed?? LOL ;)

    If I win I choose More. I want Breathe for my Kindle it takes me a bit longer to get to books on the computer.

    Those are fantastic reviews Sloan, no wonder you feel so good! Congratulations :)

  3. Sloan, wanted to stop by and say a Big Congrats!
    All the kudos coming your way are well deserved and both of the books are fantastic reads!

  4. Sloan, with reviews like those (did I mention that I hate you ) I MUST have Breath.

    Sounds like the kind of book I want to write.

    Best of luck

    Ike Rosen

  5. I would love to read More. :)

    I like your attitude about reviews. It’s best and healthy. Nice to see you enjoying these.


  6. I’m almost finished reading More and I LOVE IT! I would love dearly to get a copy of Breathe. *crosses fingers* Keep up the good work, Sloan!

  7. I just read Breathe. OMG what a wonderful story! I am a complete angst addict and sure delivered some very good angst. I need to sit down and write down my thoughts ’cause that’s what I do.

    Since I already read Breathe, I would love to read More.

  8. I just finished reading “More” a couple of days ago. I’d love to win a copy of “Breathe”

    Jan: Very cool that you’d like to read More. Thanks! And thank you about my take on reviews. I’ve done some blind judging for contests and that was hard enough. I couldn’t imagine attempting to review a book in a public way. Hats off to those who can and do.

    Ethan: Thanks. Always nice to hear there’s good buzz going. Good luck in the contest.

    KC: So glad to hear More worked out for you and that you want to give another one of my stories a go. I’ve been working on my next two for a while now, and they’re starting to really come together.

    PD: Fabulous to hear you think both books sound good. I hope you enjoy them if you do get a chance to read either.

    Sherri: Thanks so much for stopping by and expressing an interest in trying out my work.

  11. Is it still OK to try? I saw “Breathe” in my GR friend’s “to-read” list and it looked good, so I went and read an excerpt it was even better so I ended up on your blog trying to win the book ^_^

  12. Hi Suhi! So glad you liked the excerpt. Since I was being lazy and went to bed last night without marking the contest close or disabling comments, you’re in.
