With Quiet Ardency — Giveaway!

Posted 7 October, 2018 by Lianne in Books, Writing / 1 Comment

I actually meant to post this a few days ago but I’ve been so busy these last few weeks that I just didn’t get around to it >_< Anyway, my latest poetry collection, With Quiet Ardency, is available online now on all book retailer websites (Amazon, the Book Depository, etc.) as well as Lulu.com. It’s a poetry collection that’s a bit more personal and due to a number of setbacks and emotional upheaval, the release was delayed for some time. More about the book in this blog post but it’s available now, haha.

I actually hosted a giveaway on my poetry IG account a while ago in celebration of its release but I’m hosting a giveaway here as well 🙂 This contest is open internationally and will run from 07 October to 14 October 2018 @ 11:59PM EST. Please use a valid email address when you enter in the Rafflecopter below. The will be contacted the following day and they will have 24 hours to claim their prize or I will raffle another winner.

Also, just a heads up, for the month of October, my books Shall I Be a Poet Instead? and With Quiet Ardency, are 30% off over at Lulu.com 🙂 Please check it out!

Of Frost and Fury — Giveaway!

Posted 1 February, 2018 by Lianne in Writing / 9 Comments

At last I’m hosting a giveaway here! lol. My second poetry collection, Of Frost and Fury: Poems Written in the Land of Volcanoes and Giants, was released late last year but given how busy it was around Christmas time, there wasn’t much promotion on my part (not to mention it took a while before it became available on online outlets like The Book Depository and Amazon–which they are now available at). You can read more about how this book came about over at this post.

So I’m hosting a giveaway contest here on my blog for a chance to win a signed copy of my latest book. Unlike the giveaway I hosted on Goodreads (before their policy changed), this contest is open internationally and will run from 01 February to 12 February 2018 @ 11:59PM EST. Please use a valid email address when you enter in the Rafflecopter below. Winners will be contacted the following day and they will have 24 hours to claim their prize or I will raffle another winner.

Please let me know if you have any questions about the contest and whatnot. Otherwise, good luck! 🙂

Edit: Thank you to everyone who entered this contest and congratulations to the winners, Arthur & Cassandra! 🙂

Shall I Be a Poet Instead — Giveaway!

Posted 7 November, 2017 by Lianne in Writing / 10 Comments

Yup, it’s live now, my giveaway contest for my debut poetry book, Shall I Be a Poet Instead? As I’ve been posting time and again here for about the last few months, I finally took the plunge and self-published my poetry; you can read all about my journey doing that over at this post. Since then it’s gone live to other retail outlets (Amazon, Barnes & Noble, The Book Depository to name a few) and I’ve also hosted my first GoodReads giveaway last month. Exciting stuff to say the least 😀

So I’m hosting another giveaway contest here on my blog for a chance to win a signed copy of my book. This time the contest is open internationally and will run from 07 November to 21 November 2017 @ 11:59PM EST. Please use a valid email address when you enter in the Rafflecopter below. Winners will be contacted the following day and they will have 24 hours to claim their prize or else I will raffle another winner.

Another Year Older… (Birthday (Book) Giveaway!)

Posted 5 October, 2017 by Lianne in Miscellaneous / 20 Comments

It’s that time of year again…No, not Christmas (though that’s coming up real soon, isn’t it?), but it’s my birthday, lol. Yeah, I have to say this past year went by pretty quickly, and surprisingly enough with quite a number of big things going on (temporary move/change of status at work, travelling off to Iceland & Denmark earlier this year, going back to school (again), the publication of my first poetry collection). So I’m 31 today (yup, yup, definitely clearing off from my 20s here) and it’s just onward and upward from here.

As some of you know, I’m not big on splashy celebrations and whatnot (although the last few years I’ve noticed I no longer confine my celebrations to the day of but rather spread it out over the course of a week…lmao I didn’t even do anything remotely like this when I was younger!) but as with previous years, I’ve decided to host a wee book giveaway here at my blog featuring some of my favourite reads in the past year 🙂 You have a choice from one of the ten:

  • The Noise of Time by Julian Barnes (review)
  • Hyperion by Dan Simmons (review forthcoming)
  • Any book from Jasper Fforde’s Thursday Next series (see author tag)
  • China Rich Girlfriend by Kevin Kwan (review)
  • The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessey by Rachel Joyce (review)
  • Everything Beautiful Began After by Simon van Booy (review)
  • Maybe in Another Life by Taylor Jenkins Reid (review)
  • Forty Words for Sorrow by Giles Blunt (review)
  • Miguel Hernandez’s poetry (review)
  • Mur Lafferty’s Six Wakes (review forthcoming)



To enter, just fill out the Rafflecopter below! This giveaway ends on 12 October 2017 at 11:59pm EST and is open internationally so long as The Book Depository delivers to your country. A winner will be chosen and contacted the following day (or thereabouts), so please make sure you enter a valid email address 😉 The winner will be announced on this same post.

Bonne chance! Here’s to the year ahead 😀 Oh, and before I forget, there’s still a bit of time to enter the giveaway I’m hosting at Goodreads for a copy of my debut poetry book, Shall I Be a Poet Instead? You can enter that giveaway over here. That contest closes midnight 🙂

Shall I Be a Poet Instead? – Goodreads Giveaway

Just a heads up that I am currently hosting a giveaway over at Goodreads for a chance to win a signed copy of my debut poetry collection, Shall I Be a Poet Instead? (see my first post about this) 🙂 This is my first time hosting a giveaway via Goodreads so I’m starting out a bit small, just to see how it goes. The giveaway is currently open to Canadian and US residents–sorry, international readers! But not to fret; I plan on hosting a giveaway here sometime in the near future so keep your eyes peeled here on my blog 😉

Giveaway runs from 26 September to 06 October 2017. Best of luck!
