Yay!! It’s official, we are one year going strong. Terrific video and thanks to Eric Arvin for taking part in such a fun and interesting way. And to you, Cindi, for facilitating it all 🙂 The books. I…want…them. But I have to play nice and not put my hat in the ring *sad face*
And what a great year it’s been. What a fun way to continue with our celebration. Kazza, you would love the books. You know my love of both. 😀
Congratulations on your 1 year anniversary! What a great way to celebrate.
Thank you, Eric, for the video, you always make me smile.
I already own Mingled Destinies and I don’t want to stop someone else from getting the chance to read these books so don’t put me in the contest. I have to get Azrael soon, after GRL I think.
Thanks, Allison. It is good to be one 😀
Great interview. Thanks for sharing yourself with us. 🙂
Congratulations on your 1 year anniversary & what an awesome author to help with the celebrations. Eric’s writing is beyond brilliant! 🙂
Thanks, Jane. I couldn’t agree more about Eric’s writing. 🙂
Eric, you’re just my favourite! Congrats on all your successes (writing and personal)! Adam and I are fangirling it over here 😉
Love Eric’s work. Great interview as always.
I’d like to enter too. The books sound great and that video is awesome. 😀
Thanks, Blaze. You’re in. 🙂
Congratulations on one year! And then to have Eric Arvin celebrate with you?? – WOW!
I have both books already (of course) so don’t include me in the giveaway, but I couldn’t resist saying congrats and I always love listening to Eric talk about his work.
Thanks, Ann. The video was Eric’s idea and he was wonderful about it. 🙂 It’s been a lot of fun.
Congrats! Thanks for the giveaway and throwing a celebration.
Thanks, Cynthia. 🙂
These books sound great! I’ll put myself down for the giveaway.
You’re in, J!
Cindi and Kazza, thank you for bringing Eric onto our screens once again. His videos are always so fun and interesting. Okay, here’s confession time: I have one (one!) Eric Arvin book, and I haven’t read it yet (*hides in shame*). I know! I know! It just happened that way. There are just so many great authors and books, and augh, I want to be a hermit who lives in a cave with comfy chairs and good lighting. So, were I to be lucky enough to win, it would triple (triple!) the number of his wonderful books I have. Of… Read more »
It was such an enjoyable video, wasn’t it? I have to admit I have never seen one of his videos before he did this for our blog and I am grateful to both Eric and Cindi for that happening. I know exactly what you mean Carolyn, so many books and so few hours!
Thanks for the well wishes and the confetti, I’m pulling it out of my hair as I type 🙂
*sigh* Whatever will I do with you two? To go with the confetti (this is a celebration, after all) I shall bring chocolate and champagne and Carolyn will read the book of Eric’s that she owns and Kazza K will watch his other videos. You both must get caught up! LOL
In all seriousness, thanks for the well wishes, Carolyn. This has been a fun month and it’s not even halfway over yet.
As a non-drinker I shall leave the champers to you and I will nick the chocolate!!
Congrats on the 1 year anniversary. Great interview Eric. I loved Woke Up In A Strange Place. Thanks for sharing the story behind it.
Thanks, Jacquie. 🙂
Congrats on your first anniversary and thanks for the giveaway!
Thanks, Jen. And you’re welcome. 🙂
This has been so much fun! Thank you all for your lovely comments, and thank you Cindi and Kazza for their unflinching encouragement. I might run this video on my blog and on FB after the competition, if that’s okay.
Of course it’s okay. Thank you so much for being part of our celebration, Eric. We’ve had so much fun with it. 🙂
Great video, Eric. I loved it! 😀
Entry added by Cindi due to technical issues.
Thanks so much! I never win anything. Really looking to reading them. Yeeah bro.
Congrats, J! I hope you enjoy them as much as I did. 😀
I hope you enjoy them too 🙂
