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.

As for movie quotes, well there’s “don’t cry shopgirl don’t cry” from you’ve got mail OR “as you wish” from princess bride OR “i may call you my Mr. Knightley” from emma.

  13. An all-time old favorite of mine is still ‘Go ahead, make my day’ from Sudden Impact’ and I also liked “Oh Beautiful! We’re lost, but we’re making good time! from City Slickers.


  14. I don’t have a favorite quote from a movie but I do have one from a book.
    “Some people are like Slinkies. They aren’t really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs” Loved your book, can’t wait for the next one.


  15. Oh dear, I’d love to win this, but I don’t know if I can restrain myself to one quote. Ya see, those of us who are Firefly/Serenity fans “Aim to misbehave.” (Mal)
    ***
    Wash: “This is gonna get pretty interesting.”
    Mal: “Define interesting.”
    Wash: “Oh, God, oh, God, we’re all gonna die?”
    ***
    Zoe: “Cap’n didn’t make them fugitives.”

    Kaylee: “But he coulda made ‘em family. ‘stead of keepin’ Simon from seein’ I was there. And I carried such a torch! And we coulda…goin’ on a year now and I ain’t had nothin’ twixt my nethers weren’t run on batteries!”

    Mal: (horrified) “Oh God! I can’t know that!”

    Jayne: “I could stand to hear more.”
    ***
    Wash: “I am a leaf on the wind. Watch how I soar.”
    ***
    I pared three more quotes out of this reply – that’s the best I can do, ‘specially since I ain’t had nothing twixt MY nethers…okay, I won’t go there.


  16. Hi Anya,

    The quote that has always stuck in my mind is the famous Rhett Butler one from “Gone with the Wind”

    ” Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.

    Carol


  17. From my favorite tv show “Supernatural”

    Sam Winchester: Dude, I’m not enabling your sick habit. You’re like one of those lab rats that pushes the pleasure button instead of the food button until it dies.
    Dean Winchester: What are you talking about, I eat.

    Thanks for the contest.


  18. Most memorable quote I can think of is Raiders of the Lost Ark — You Americans, you’re all the same. Always overdressing for the wrong occassions.


  19. Jo: [cow flies by in the storm] Cow.
    [cow flies by in the storm]
    Jo: ‘Nother cow.
    Bill: Actually I think that was the same one……
    Melissa: I gotta go Julia, we got cows.
    ……..Jo: We gotta breathe….We all just gotta breathe.

    from TWISTER


  20. I love Scarlett’s “Tomorrow is another day” in Gone with the Wind and Arnold Schwatzerneiger’s “I’ll be back” in The Terminator.


  21. I watch TV but don’t ever remember any of the quotes but one of my favorite book quotes is from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J K Rowling. It is when Harry is recuperating at the end and Dumbledore says to Harry’s question regarding his friend, the owner of the sorcerer stone. He replys to Harry,” To the well-organized mind; Death is but the next adventure. I know its a bit morbid but it just always resonated with me. Hope this is a good enough explanation. I loved Witch Fire and can’t wait for Witch Blood. Happy Valentine’s Day!


  22. Oohh, an arc. I can’t wait for this book and there’s a chance I could get it sooner….sweet!

  40. Witch Blood is positevly entrancing story. My favorite qoute is form “Shakespeare In Love” I will have poetry in my life. And adventure. And love. Love above all. No… not the artful postures of love, not playful and poetical games of love for the amusement of an evening, but love that… over-throws life. Unbiddable, ungovernable – like a riot in the heart, and nothing to be done, come ruin or rapture. Love – like there has never been in a play.


  41. Hi Anya!
    Super contest! I had fun reading through all these great quotes. I have two very simple favorite quotes that I can think of straight away, and they both totally give away my love of romance!

    One is “As you wish.” said (more than once) by Prince Westley to Buttercup in The Princess Bride.

    And the other is “I can fix that.” said (again, more than once) by Sam the Onion Man to Kissin’ Kate Barlow in the movie Holes.

    I just realized both of these films are based on novels! :smile:


  42. One of my favorite quotes is from The Breakfast Club.

    John Bender: Stupid, worthless, no good, goddamn, freeloading son of a bitch. Retarded, big mouth, know-it-all, asshole, jerk. You forgot ugly, lazy and disrespectful. Shut up bitch. Go fix me a turkey pot pie. No dad, what about you? Fuck you. No dad, what about you? Fuck you. Dad, what about you? Fuck you.

    Brian Johnson: Is that for real?

    John Bender: You wanna come over sometime?


  43. From Shrek 1

    Donkey: You know what else everybody likes? Parfaits. Have you ever met a person, you say, “Let’s get some parfait,” they say, “Hell no, I don’t like no parfait”? Parfaits are delicious.

    I just love Donkey :) LOL

    Shrek: NOOO!!! YOU DENSE, IRRITATING, MINIATURE BEAST OF BURDEN! OGRES ARE LIKE ONIONS! END OF STORY! BYE BYE! [whispers] See you later!
    [pause]

    Donkey: Parfaits may probably be the most delicious thing on the whole damn planet!


  44. I also LOVE quotes be it movies or books heres a couple for you

    It is always surprising how small a part of life is taken up by meaningful moments. Most often they’re over before they start even though they cast a light on the future and make the person who originated them unforgettable
    (Anna and the King)

    I ask for so little. Just fear me, love me, do as I say and I will be your slave.
    (Laryrinth)


  45. HI Anya! Please enter me in your contest. My quote is from Pretty Woman :

    I have to go shopping now.”


  46. Don’t watch much tv anymore but I do have a favorite quote from a book:

    “They were careless people, Tom and Daisy—they
    smashed up things and creatures and then retreated
    back into their money or their vast carelessness, or
    whatever it was that kept them together, and let
    other people clean up the mess they had made” – The Great Gatsby

  53. YAY – I’m SSOOO looking forward to this book!

    My favorite quote isn’t from a movie, it’s from a song – “I no longer justify reasons for the way that I behave, I offer no apologies for the things that I believe and say – And I like it that way” Trisha Yearwood “Real Live Woman”

    Favorite book quote (recently) comes from a Michelle Rowan book I think–and I may be paraphrasing–“I was between a naked warewolf and a half-naked vampire–I felt like Anita Blake.” Now if that’s not great, I don’t know what is!

    “What are you going to do about it?”

    This is probably one of my favorite quotes ever… (even though the movie is really a bastardization of the book – I loved it after watching it with the director’s commentary…)
    “Selfishness must always be forgiven, you know, for there’s no hope of a cure!” Embeth Davidtz as Mary Crawford, in Mansfield Park.

    Manfred: Hey, Lord of the Flame, your tail’s on fire.

    Sid: From now on, I’m gonna call you ‘Diego…
    Diego: …Lord of Touch Me and you’re Dead.

    [on Sid’s clumsy attempts to scale a cliff]
    Manfred: You’re an embarrassment to Nature. Ya know that?

    Sid: Hey, my feet are sweating.
    Diego: Do we need a news flash every time your body does something?

    Manfred: Hey, buddy, want a lift?
    Diego: No, thanks. I’m saving what little dignity I’ve got left.
    Sid: You’re hanging out with us now, pal. Dignity has nothing to do with it.

    Ok, there’s a lot more but those are the mains one! Love Sid – he’s hilarious! :grin:

  73. I use to own a used book store and I went to a local auction and bought several boxes of old books. They all had to do with witches and witch craft. After emptying one of the boxes, I realized that this box still felt very very very heavy, so I began inspecting the box. I found that it had a false bottom and when I took the protective covering from the bottom I found a book. But not just any book. This book was a book of spells. I mean a real book of spells and witch craft. As soon as I touched it I felt a cold chill go through my body. Even the binding of the book felt weird. Not paper or cardboard but made of something very smooth and silky to the touch. My husband teased me saying that it was skin. Anyway, I knew of a local coven and I couldn’t wait to get rid of this book. I called one of the contact names and they were there within an hour. I never got to even give them a quote. As soon as they saw it they offered me $300 for it. I took $100 which covered the cost of the auction itself. I couldn’t wait to get rid of that book.

  101. Hello. Please enter me into your contest for WITCH BLOOD ARC.

  116. 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.


  117. :twisted: “I’ll get you my pretty and your little dog too!” Wizard of Oz.


  118. 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


  119. You talkin to me! You talkin to me! :grin:
    You must be talkin to me, I would love to win a copy of one of your books.

  121. 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!


  122. 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.

    Mona


  123. 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.”

    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

    “Leave the gun, take the cannoli’s”


  129. Ohh an ARC of ‘Witches Blood’! I can’t wait for the release-unless of course I’m a winner :wink: 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! :lol:


  130. 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!


  131. 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!


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