PSB: Thank You!


The end is already so close!

In fact the overdose of Guest Post, Interviews and Giveaways is now over. But you still have until April 6th to enter the giveaways, and all winners will be announced on April 8th, so don’t forget to come back and see if you’ve been lucky!

Rachel from Parajunkee’s View and myself would like to thank everyone for such an awesome response! We were really happy to have all of you come and visit us and we are hoping you will stick with us some more =)

Here are some Paranormal Spring Break Numbers:

  • 28 Interviews
  • 20 Guest Blogs
  • 64 Giveaways which breaks down to 125 books total!

But this events wouldn’t have been possible without the participation of some truly awesome allies, and we would like to thank every single one of them personally for their time, their efforts and their generosity!

First, thank you to my partner in crime, Rachel! I contacted her in January to see if she wanted to join me for the Paranormal Spring Break. Seeing how big the Paranormal Summer Fest had been, I obviously needed help! I had such a great time Rachel! Thank you!

Second, thank you to our friends from the different publishing houses / Media Companies (alphabetic order):

Hopefully I didn’t forget anyone! but if your name is missing, let me know I’ll add it!

And now a huge Thank You to the fabulous authors who made room for us in their busy schedule! You guys have been so amazing, we can’t thank you enough =)

  2. WOW, it was such a big event !! =)
    So excited !! Thank you again Tynga for all these awesome interviews and giveaways !!

  3. THank you so much for having such an amazing event! I really enjoyed PSB throughout the month! I truly hope you do this again next year! Thank you again!

  4. I added so many books to my wish list....It was a blast!

  5. I am so glad to learn that I haven't completely missed out on PSB. 2011 has started out with some difficulties that forced other things, like reading (only 1 book for March), checking the blogs I follow and other enjoyable stuff, to the back burner. Before I knew it March was ending, I did a quick check the other night and found out I can still participate, which made my week to say the least! Now on to check out what we, hubby and I, have been missing and hoping (fingers crossed) we win something!

  6. Thank you Tynga for all these awesome interviews and giveaways!
    Thanks for making most of if international!
