Witch Blood ARC Contest!

I have one ARC of Witch Blood left. I will give it away, along with a selection of bath goodies and chocolates, to one lucky winner!

A water witch, Isabelle Novak has always led a chaotic, nomadic existence. But her life spins out of control when her sister—her only friend and emotional anchor—is killed by a demon. Driven by grief and a desire for revenge, she turns her back on the Coven and the rede they hold sacred: Harm thee none…

When Isabelle first encounters Thomas Monahan, she’s running on pure rage and sorrow, channeling her pain into power—and trying to freeze the life out of a warlock she holds responsible for her sister’s death. Together, they form an uneasy alliance to hunt and destroy a demon of tremendous power. As head of the Coven, earth witch Thomas must thwart Isabelle’s dark impulses, but his very presence stirs deeper desires she never knew she had…

Have a copy of Witch Blood before anyone else! Here’s your chance.

  1. Hello. Please enter me into your contest for WITCH BLOOD ARC. The first quote that popped into my mind was from Rhett Butler: “Frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn!” I guess maybe because I read the book and saw the movie when I was about 12 years old, that curse word stuck in my mind. 🙄

  2. From one of my fave movies ‘Brokeback Mountain’ and we all know this feeling… “I wish I knew how to quit you…”

  3. From Top Gun:

    [Watching a video of planes being shot down]
    Wolfman: This gives me a hard on.
    Chipper: Don’t tease me.

    WELL FOR MOVIE QUOTES I will start off with a classic THERE CAN BE …ONLY ONE … hmm Highlander and men in kilts works for me ..

    “Locked together in hatred. But I can’t hate you Louis. Louis my love, I was mortal till you gave me your immortal kiss. You became my mother, and my father, and so I’m yours forever. But now it’s time to end it, Louis. Now it’s time to leave him. “

  16. Hi Anya,
    I have a couple of quotes I particularly like from the show “House” Hugh Laurie is just hysterical and is like my humoristic soul mate lol

    “This isn’t just about the sex. You like her personality. You like that she’s conniving. You like that she has no regard for consequences. You like that she can humiliate someone if it serves. Oh my God. You’re sleeping with me” House to Wilson on learning he is dating Amber aka Cutthroat Bitch

    “Skirt that tight you got no secrets. Skirt that tight, I can tell if you’ve got an IUD”

    Arrogance has to be earned. Tell me what you’ve done to earn yours

    I was curious. Since I’m not a cat, that’s not dangerous

    These are just a few of my faves. Thanks for offering the chance to win in your contest.

  17. 😈 “I’ll get you my pretty and your little dog too!” Wizard of Oz.

  18. Love paranormal its my favorite!
    And do you know how hard it is to pick a favorite quote lol

    Top Gun:
    Maverick: She’s lost that loving feeling.
    Goose: No, no she hasn’t.
    Maverick: Oh, yes she has.
    Goose: I hate it when she does that

    Ski School:
    It’s not how far you go, it’s how go you far.

    In order to be the best, you must lose your mind

    10 Things I Hate About You:

    Kat Stratford: I hate the way you talk to me, and the way you cut your hair. I hate the way you drive my car. I hate it when you stare. I hate your big dumb combat boots, and the way you read my mind. I hate you so much it makes me sick; it even makes me rhyme. I hate it, I hate the way you’re always right. I hate it when you lie. I hate it when you make me laugh, even worse when you make me cry. I hate it when you’re not around, and the fact that you didn’t call. But mostly I hate the way I don’t hate you. Not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all.

    Actually any quote from the aboved mentioned movies

  19. You talkin to me! You talkin to me! 😀
    You must be talkin to me, I would love to win a copy of one of your books.

  20. “You know Jim, some of us use it as a sleep aid” from the According to Jim T.V. Show

  21. Hi Anya,
    Loved the first book, Witch Fire. And you are another who has fabulous covers!

    I don’t watch movies or TV very often at all but…

    “my precious.”

    I can NEVER get enough of The Lord of the Rings!

  22. Wizard of Oz: You, my friend, are a victim of disorganized thinking. You are under the unfortunate impression that just because you run away you have no courage; you’re confusing courage with wisdom.


  23. Just read the excerpt from Mackenzie Mckade’s Black Widow. Between a Wolf and a Vamp…

    “Now don’t go furry on me, Lanier, hear me out.”

    Made me laugh. The story line is good, too.

  24. Not absolute fave but what I can think of right now. From the tv show Buffy

    Xander: Okay Willow, Gay me up.

  25. Please, Please enter me. Thank you and keep writing.

  26. Most interested in reading ‘Witches Blood’ , definite peeked my interest. Looks awsome.

  27. Oh, Anya, I’m drooling over the ARC! I’d absolutely love to have it. Some of my favorite movie quotes are as follows:

    Dante Hicks: I’m not even supposed to be here today! – CLERKS

    Mable ‘Madea’ Simmons: I told you, you don’t know how to lie. What kinda lawyer don’t know how to lie? Lie and lawyer go together lie-awyer… lie-awyer! – MADEA’S FAMILY REUNION

    Fern: She’s so evil… and she’s only in high school! – JAWBREAKER

  28. One of my favorite quotes is from the “Godfather”.

    “Leave the gun, take the cannoli’s”

  29. Ohh an ARC of ‘Witches Blood’! I can’t wait for the release-unless of course I’m a winner 😉 My quote is not movie related-here it is:
    “A happy person is not a person in a certain set of circumstances, but rather a person with a certain set of attitudes”- Hugh Downs

    another fav is: “Attitude is everything” author unknown

    Thanks for the chance to win! 😆

  30. Enjoyed everyone else’s quote – Some were one’s I had thought of. One of my favorite is one we quote at all of my brother’s and sister’s weddings (have 6) “Mawaige, Mawaige is what bwings us togetha today…” from the Princess Bride. We do the entire monologue – makes for some fun laughter (and sure does date us!) It’s even bled into some in-law weddings…

    Thanks for the opportunity to remember and smile!

  31. Hi Anya! Would so love to be in this contest!! Thanks! (tbranxiety@yahoo.com)

    I honestly don’t watch movies, execept for some recent historical ones when they come on DVD and if they are captioned. So I’m looking forward to watching the Masterpiece movies they did of Jane Austen books. I missed a couple of those to tape tho.

    I do like older shows on TV, and each night I love watching Stanford and Son. I love when Redd Foxx would speak to his wife in heaven saying “You here that Elizabeth? I’m coming to join you honey!” when he fakes his heart attacks, usually when he’s in some sort of trouble! Love that show!

  32. PS I’m thrilled to have found your blog too!

  33. Some one get this big walking carpet out of my way.

  34. Tin Man: Now I know I have a heart, because it’s breaking – WIZARD OF OZ

  35. “I like my men like kleenex…soft, strong, and disposable” – Clue

  38. Not from a movie…Japanese poem.

    that at last I would

    take this road, but yesterday

    I did not know it would be today.”

    or another

    Will I cease to be,
    Or will I remember
    Beyond the world,
    Our last meeting together?

    Kono yo no hoka no
