#IndieFever Exclusive Giveaway ~~ June Edition!

In order to make this challenge more interesting for you guys, I have been trying to rope in a few indie authors who would be up for doing giveaways. My idea here is to bring Indie Authors and Readers together. And it is pretty simple. The authors offer a few copies of their books here, in an exclusive Indie-Fever Reading Challenge Giveaway, and the winner can choose to read and review the book in the upcoming month/s. Ofcourse, you don't have to review the books you win in these giveaways, but it would be nice if you did :)

By now you all have received your books from the May Giveaway (if you haven't then please contact me via the comments section or shoot me a mail). I sure hope to see some reviews of those books!

So for May, I have two authors sponsoring the Giveaway. Before I get into the details, here are the terms & conditions of 'Indie-Fever Giveaway' once again!
1. This giveaway is exclusively for the participants of "Indie-Fever Reading Challenge" on my blog. So, to enter the giveaways/ to be eligible for it, you have to be participating in this challenge.
2.Whenever required, please place your entries under the name you have used to enter the challenge so that I can make sure that the entries are restricted to the participants only.
3.As mentioned earlier, if you win a book, it is not compulsory for you to review it, but it would be nice if you did.

First Giveaway
Heather Hildenbrand was born and raised in a small town in northern Virginia where she was homeschooled through high school. She now lives in coastal VA, a few miles from the Atlantic Ocean, with her two adorable children. She works from home, part time, as a property manager and when she's not furiously pounding at the keyboard, or staring off into space whilst plotting a new story, she's lying on the beach, soaking in those delicious, pre-cancerous rays.
Heather loves Mexican food, hates socks with sandals, and if her house was on fire, the one thing she'd grab is her DVR player.
Heather is a co-founder of Accendo Press, a publishing group she operates with fellow authors: Angeline Kace and Jennifer Sommersby. Accendo (a-CH-endo), A Latin word, means “to kindle, illuminate, inflame, or set fire.” This is something Accendo strives to do inside a reader’s imagination with every title released.

Imitation (Clone Chronicles #1) by Heather Hildenbrand

Everyone is exactly like me. 

There is no one like me. 

The rough fabric of my cotton nightgown chafes so I lie very still. They say my discomfort comes from being built like one accustomed to niceties. How is that fair when I myself have never experienced anything but copies of the real thing? 

My entire life is an imitation. 
I am an Imitation. 
I’ve been here five years. Training. Preparing. Waiting.
And now I have a letter.
My assignment has begun. 
I am a prisoner.
I am not Raven Rogen.
I am here to die. 

2 Copies of Imitation is up for grabs!

Second Giveaway
Catherine Astolfo retired in 2002 after a very successful 34 years in education. She can recall writing fantasy stories for her classmates in Grade Three, so she started finishing her books the day after her retirement became official. Her short stories and poems have been published in a number of Canadian literary presses. Her story, "What Kelly Did", won the prestigious Arthur Ellis Award for Best Short Crime Story in 2012.
Catherine's books are gritty, yet portray gorgeous surroundings; they deal with sensitive social issues, but always include love and hope. They're not thrillers, but rather literary mysteries with loads of character and setting. And justice always prevails.

Say hello to her

The Emily Taylor Mystery Series:

Some secrets can come back to haunt you…
Principal Emily Taylor feels safe in the friendly little town of Burchill—until she finds a body in her school. The murder of caretaker Nathaniel Ryeburn brings back memories she'd rather forget and plunges Emily into a mystery that involves a secret diary, an illegal puppy mill and a murderer innocently disguised as an ordinary citizen.
As fear rips through the traumatized town, Emily's investigation inadvertently leads the police to her door, and to her husband Langford, who is hiding a secret of his own. It becomes clear to Emily that many of Burchill's residents are merely wearing masks. And it's time for those masks to be ripped away…and for a killer's identity to be revealed

Oona Nabigon had disappeared, leaving only her footprints in the snow, prints that raced around the tree, not once, but exactly twenty times, in ever-widening, almost precise, circles. 
Veering off directly toward the forest, the footprints became further apart, obviously running. Abruptly, the trail ended at the edge of Bahswaway Pond. 
Oona’s friend Frieda found the first evidence: a small bit of fur, drenched with dried blood, caught on a twig of one of the bushes. The fur of a bear.
She was quite far into the thick of the forest, when Frieda saw the first print. Catching her breath, she reeled slightly at the sight of it, and sank down to steady herself as much as to study the track. It was huge, one of the biggest prints she had ever seen. 
A sudden noise frightened Frieda into running, straight into a bear trap. Flung to the ground, she looked up to see the giant head of a bear. Walking Bear. Half bear, half human. A legend come to life, but for what purpose?
Emily Taylor, once more drawn into the unknown, must face her own secrets and fears to discover a way to unravel the mystery.

While Emily Taylor deals with the dysfunctional Sanderson family at school, seemingly unconnected characters play out their own troubled journeys into the past. 
Doro searches for her lost childhood. Alain Reneaux delves into the reasons behind his violent nightmares. The town's new lawyer, Jacob Finch, suffers from guilt about the heartbreaking death of his wife. And two lonely little girls suffer neglect and tragedy. 
As Emily untangles the complexities of the Sanderson children’s lives, the collision of past into future causes an inferno of insanity and death, which ultimately proves how essential family and friendship are to happiness and endurance. 

Emily Taylor's husband, Langford, has a troubled past that has come back to haunt them, but it's time to clear his name. Along with their lawyer and a skilled private detective, they travel back to Vancouver, BC, the site of tragedy and heartbreak. 
When a twisted serial killer, who calls himself The Artist, discovers that Langford and his wife have returned, he is determined to complete a gruesome ritual of evil. He knows how to lure his victims into his trap. 
But The Artist has a formidable opponent--the powerful, sustaining love between two people who have survived his malice before and plan to do it again. 

Up for Grabs : 1 copy of each book in the series! Worry not, they can be read as standalones.
