This contest has ended. Details redacted.
So, Gentle Reader, hot on the heels of the Etiquette & Espionage ARC give away I have yet another one for you! At the end of this month, Nov. 20 (we hope), Soulless: The Manga, Vol. 2 (the graphic novel version of Changeless) comes out in print.
In honor of this exciting event, I have a first prise goodie box of manga related items to give away, as well as five signed copies of Soulless Vol. 1 to get you ready for Vol. 2. The six lucky winners will be selected by random number generation.
The first prize goodie box includes but it not limited to: exotic tea, octopodes, some of the last of the original Soulless release swag, Japanese toys, a signed copy of the first manga, a Ruby Blackbird Limited edition origami pineapple reticule, and, excitingly enough, signed copies of Soulless, Changeless, and Blameless translated into Japanese!

Quote of the Day:
“Name the characteristic traits of the ancient Scotch Highlanders.
Fidelity, hospitality, and great family pride.
What were their dress and character?
They wore a plaid made of woollen stuff, or tartan, which either hung down from their shoulders, or was fastened with a belt; from this belt hung their sword, dagger, knives, and pistol; a large leathern purse hanging before, adorned with silver, was always a part of the chieftain’s dress: their patience was unwearied, their courage undaunted, and their honour unsullied.”
~ Mangnall’s Questions, 1830 (spelling uncorrected)
