Books by Tammy Blackwell Giveaway (INT)

Dreaming of Books Hop

Giveaway of Tammy Blackwell’s Books

There are a couple of authors that I just completely adore. Most of them are pretty big names, but there is one independently-published author whose books I push on everyone I meet: Tammy Blackwell. Tammy handed me her first book, Destiny Binds, at GenCon two years (right? Two years?) ago, and I was through it in about a day (skipping convention activities to read!). I am a stickler when it comes to editing and writing quality for every sort of book, but especially independently-published books and I can say with complete confidence that Tammy’s books are of the highest quality. Therefore, I’m increasing my book pushing to epic levels by pushing these books on all of you! Plus, Miss Tammy is a librarian, increasing her awesomeness a million-fold.

I was delighted to see that Tammy’s books are available through the Book Depository, which is really just demanding that I do an international giveaway for these books so that everyone can enjoy them :D. If you’ve never read any of the Timber Wolves books, you’ll want to start with Destiny Binds:

Destiny Binds by Tammy BlackwellScout Donovan is a girl who believes in rules, logic, and her lifelong love of Charlie Hagan. Alex Cole believes in destiny, magic, and Scout. When Alex introduces Scout to the world of Shifters, men who change into wolves or coyotes during the full moon and Seers, women who can see your most private thoughts and emotions with a mere touch, the knowledge changes everything and everyone Scout thought she knew.


Fragile Brilliance by Tammy BlackwellIf you’ve read some of the books, then you know where you are in the trilogy ;-). And don’t forget that Fragile Brilliance just came out and is a choice for the winner as well :D. It takes place after Timber Wolves, has more of a romance emphasis and introduces new characters and magic!

What is the actual giveaway you ask? It is for your choice of one of Tammy Blackwell’s books! So if you’re just starting, you can get Destiny Binds, if you’re farther along, you can get whichever one you’re at :D. If you’ve already read the Timber Wolves series but haven’t picked up Fragile Brilliance yet, that would be a great option ;-). Also I really can’t recommend enough that if you like YA urban fantasy with a strong heroine, major feels, and top-notch writing, you could totally just go buy the whole set! I really shouldn’t have gone to that Amazon page since now I want to buy the box set…. I have a pretty complete trilogy that was a special con edition though, so I’m okay ;-).

Normal giveaway rules apply: Everyone can enter as long as The Book Depository ships to your country and you are 13+. The winner will have 48 hours to respond. I check entries so please don’t cheat!

    • Awesome, I think I have a book of hers that was traditionally published, she wrote Wake?

      • Yes, she did write Wake. When she first came out she was self published. Her book first book Switched in the Trylle Trilogy was my first Indie book I ever read. I fell in love with these series. I have yet to read Wake or any of the other books, but this series I would HIGHLY recommend. She did get this series traditionally published a few years later.

        • Awesome! It’s nice when indie authors are finally able to convince the publishing houses that they are awesome, makes me happy to see them succeed in that direction if that’s what they want to do :)

  30. No, I still haven’t read Tammy Blackwell. I know: dishonor on me, my family and my cow. But I will! Eventually. :D

    As far as other indie authors, I can’t think of any I’ve loved off the top of my head, but I haven’t read many lately. I know Natalie Whipple is coming out with a self-published title, “Relax, I’m a Ninja,” later this year. Haven’t read her yet, but she has three books traditionally published. I think/hope that bodes well for this one. :)

    • Especially the cow ;-)

      It is always a good sign when an author is traditionally published as well, though I guess I count them in a different category because of that, haha “hybrid author” perhaps

  31. No this is the first time I’ve heard of her, but i know i knew i had to read her the moment you mentioned strong female.
    I generally shy away from indie authors, never had luck with them.
    I looove the name of your blog!
    Doroty Ellis recently posted…Blog Tour+ Giveaway: Lingering Echoes by Erica KieferMy Profile

    • Thank you so much :D Yes, I honestly don’t think you will even realize she is indie if you hadn’t known previously :)

  32. I’ve never heard about this author before, but now you make me want to read and meet Scout and Alex! I didn’t know much about indie author. Thanks for sharing. ^^

  35. LeKeisha Thomas says:

    I haven’t read any of her books, but that is all about to change. I like a lot of indie authors, but I really love Author Tim O’Rourke’s Kiera Hudson Series. There are two series and I just love the whole world that he created. My only problem that I have is that the books are too short for my liking. LOL! Series one has about eight books, as does Series two. I think if the books were combined that each series could have 3-4 books each. Okay, I’m rambling! Anyways, thanks for introducing this author to us!!

    • Woot! Thank you so much for the recommendation :D I hear ya, sometimes I feel like books one and two in a series should really have been combined into one book, haha, even with traditionally published books!
