May Winners & June's Kinky Giveaway


May Is A Special Month...

~o~

Wow, I would never have thought that so much could happen in just thirty days (or thirty-one if I want to be precise). May was certainly a busy month for me, and a special one at that. And not only because it was my birthday month, no. Okay, it had a lot to do with that, but still. I received many surprises that I never even dreamed of. The saying must be true that your 30th birthday is extraordinary.

I even got to tick a few items off my own bucket list. No, not the naughty one. But, among other things, I ate a shark (okay, just a small portion, but still); I saw an UFO in someone's back garden (true, it was made of plastic, but still, not everyone can say the same); and I even rescued a hedgehog from becoming roadkill. AND my little niece, who just learned how to read picked up one of my books from the shelf, saying that she wants to read it, because it's so beautiful.

She didn't know it was mine, and that's why this made me feel like a superhero. Okay, the story isn't for her for at least another 12 years or so, so her mum snatched it away faster than a cheetah, but this didn't stop me from being proud. I mean, really, over-the-moon happiness, and winning-the-oscar pride filled me at her words. There is just something special and heart-warming in a child's innocent admiration, wouldn't you agree?

Oh, have I mentioned being offered a book contract, too? True, it was a hybrid one (one where I need to pay to get published), one that I didn't take in the end, but still. It made me feel special. And I know that one day, I will get the real deal. Not that I'm complaining, on the contrary. I have a family I adore, a career in writing that I look forward to every single day, and I love my readers, and their (your) gratitude is more than enough for me.

People say that every single day can be special, because it's up to you what you make of it. And I truly believe that! It's just that last month I had plenty of 'help' in feeling the love and support of those around me (and even those who aren't around), that I couldn't help but feel truly and utterly grateful and blessed. And yes, that huge thank you goes out to my lovely readers (aka You), too! Hence I'm including a few extra surprises in this post, just to say thank you.

June Signed Paperback Giveaway Titles

~o~

As I mentioned before, it's up to us to make every single day special. And, in this case, I'm going to make June extra special. Partly to celebrate the recent release of Their Last Secret, and partly thanks to a generous reader, who made a really nice donation, I'm now able to offer 4 books in June for the signed paperback giveaway. Yep, you heard me right, that's 4 different titles for this month's giveaway, ones that will be sent out to 4 lucky winners in the beginning of July. Sounds delicious, right? And what could be a more perfect series, than the popular Her First and Last Secret Admirer? So, let's see the books:

1, Her First Secret by Timea Tokes

2, Her Secret Admirer by Timea Tokes

3, His Secret Love by Timea Tokes

4, Their Last Secret by Timea Tokes

Okay, I'm in a really generous mood today. How about I add another book to the equation? A smutty, kinky one?

5, The Escort's Taxi Ride by Timea Tokes

Another new release, one that's already proving to be quite popular. One of my readers said that my stories are getting naughtier by the minute, and in a good way. Huh, so anyway, this takes us to 5 books, and 5 lucky winners. Yummy!

~o~

~o~

How to Apply?

~o~

The process couldn't be simpler. All you need to do is sign up to my newsletter (of course, you can unsubscribe anytime). But please note that if you chose to do so, you will not be eligible for later entries, until you subscribe again (I won't hold a grudge against you, don't worry!). Oh, and I won't send you more than 1-2 emails a week (depending on how often I get in the mood to post here).

Okay, so if you want to get a chance to grab a FREE SIGNED PAPERBACK COPY of one of my books, then you just find the 'Join our mailing list, never miss an update' sign at the bottom of the page (or right under this post if you are reading via your phone). YOU HAD ME AT KINKY also directs you to the sign-up page.

~o~

~o~

How many entries do you get by signing up?

~o~

One per giveaway, to start with. So, once you subscribe to my newsletter, you will be eligible for both paperbacks (as well as ones that I will reveal next month). Oh, yes, I have big plans with this, so stay tuned. If you remain a subscriber, then you shouldn't worry, you will automatically be enlisted for all competitions (unless of course you want to opt out without losing your subscription - which you can do anytime).

I want to state again, that this is totally, utterly and completely FREE. So you don't pay anything, not even postage. All you need to do is enter your email address, click submit and then sit back and relax (and wait for the announcement).

However, if you would like me to include your email address twice in that particular magic hat for the same book (because you want it so badly), you can always comment on one of my blog posts. I'm not being greedy or selfish, purely want to know You a little better, and want to reward you all for your support. I will be honored, trust me!

~o~

~o~

When will you get your prize if you win?

~o~

On the first of July I will announce the five winners (who will of course be selected randomly from among my lovely subscribers & commenters). After that, I will send you a 'congratulations, you won' email (obviously in a more creative way) and you will have till the 15th of July to respond and 'claim' your prize (just briefly say hello and reply with the requested details, e.g. name, address, who do you want me to sign the book to, etc).

After I receive your reply, it will take 1-2 weeks to deliver (depending on where you live - and of course, how quickly you claim your prize).

~o~

~o~

How Many Winners Will Be In June's Giveaway?

~o~

Five, who will be selected randomly on the 1st of July. Anyone who subscribes before that (even at 11:59 PM on the last day of June) will be eligible. If you are extremely lucky, you might take home all the prizes (in which case, there will be one winner, obviously).

I won't disclose the full email address of the lucky ones, but will include their first and/or last name in the post (if applicable). E.g. if your email address is hornyfellow26@blah-blah.com, then I will say that 'Hey, this month our winner is HornyFellow'. (Don't worry, there won't be any confusion, as pretty much 1-2 hours after the announcement, you should receive an email from me with the requested details).

~o~

Conclusion

~o~

This is just a teeny-tiny way of saying a huge thanks guys for reading my posts and stories. It means a lot to me, and please do share this with your book-loving friends (if they are 18+, of course). Thank you, and good luck to you all! And, for those who don't win: don't worry, there will be plenty to go around later. But, if you can't wait, you can always purchase the books via Amazon, as I'm going to host some book signing events as well soon. Oops, that was supposed to be a secret for now. Oh, well, never mind. Now you know (although, they will be in the UK to start with). But who knows, right?

Feel free to let me know which books you would like in the Surprise Giveaway for July. I will take every suggestion into consideration.

In the Making...

~o~

As always, stay tuned and check out my Amazon Author page for new releases and titles you might have missed. Don't let the cover fool ya, there might be a treasure inside. A kinky one perhaps. I even started collections of short stories, including my popular titles. If you choose to purchase these, you get 5 stories for the price of 3. You had me at Kinky and You had me at Rough are both available on Amazon.

Some of my titles are available on Smashwords, too. Check out my Author page & interview here. I'm currently working on a dragon shifter romance, a demon-angel-reaper romance (slash erotica), and many short stories. Actually, I just counted them, and there are 20 titles that are sitting on my list, haha. Well, I have a feeling that I will have a really busy (and kinky) summer. Feel free to drop me a line or two if you love my work (or if you don't, as I appreciate honest feedback), and if any questions, you know where to find me.

Love,

Timea x
