**CONTEST ALERT** I Showed You Mine, Now You Shomi Yours

Posted August 25, 2008 by Holly in Giveaways | 46 Comments

Since we started this crazy busy Holly lost her damn mind thing Shomi Spotlight, I’ve been telling you about all the Shomi books I want to read (with still more to come). Well, ok, to be fair I want to read them all, but that’s not really the point. The point is I’ve been showing you mine, but you haven’t shown me yours. What do I mean by that? I mean it’s time for you to tell me which SHOMI novels you’ve read or want to read.

A lot of you were asking what exactly Shomi means. I asked the publisher and the response I got was that it sounded like “Show Me” and something Manga inspired (which also fits into the idea behind the line). That sounds about like the perfect way to have a major contest.

Here’s what you have to do: Leave a comment, or post on your own blog and Shomi a link, telling me what Shomi novels you’ve read or are interested in reading before midnight, Saturday August 30th and you’ll be entered to win a major Shomi Prize package.

Da Rules:

1) Pimp this contest on your blog/website/Twitter and leave a link telling me you’ve done so
2) Leave a comment here, or post on your own blog/website, telling me what Shomi novels you have read or want to read in the future and why (bonus points if it’s b/c of this spotlight)
3) Contest ends Saturday, August 30th at midnight

Da Prizes:

Ah yes, the most important part! Let’s see..what can you win? How about….

7 Shomi Books. Yes, that’s right, I said 7:

Sound like something you might be interested in? Enter today!

ETA: Contest is open to US and Canadian residents only.

ETA #2: Contest is open to all readers, internationally as well as in the US and Canada.

  1. I would love to purchase/read/review any of the Shomi books because you always leave such wonderful reviews of them but alas our bookstores and libraries here are so poorly stocked. Sigh. Thank God for ebooks at least.

    Good luck to the contestants!

    Countdown is one of the books that I have been wanting to read. Also, read your spotlight on Kay Austin’s Time Transit and it sounds compelling, too. I guess that is why the Shomi books appeal to me, they sound so action-packed, and pulse-poundingly suspenseful.

    I have Driven somewhere around here *searching pile of books* ugh, I will be better organized one day, lol

    I’m really going to have to get Razor Girl… it started with the title (c’mon, Razor Girl, how interesting)… then the blurb sounded so interesting and different (razor tipped nails and other changes, wow!)… then when I read the excerpt here on Book Binge… dang it, I’ve moved it to the top of my tbb list *bg*
    gee, thanks for this spotlight… I’ve added more books to my list, lol

    I’ve pimped this on Twitter, too… just joined earlier today *g*

    (taking self out of draw – hee!)

    i’ll post on my blog –
    personally, will read the two Eve Kenin books and Michelle Maddox’s ‘Countdown’ for sure

    the others all sound interesting though and would do the first page test at least for all

  5. I linked to your contest on my blog and wrote a blog entry about SHOMI books and which ones I’ve read and want to read and why. AWESOME contest! I LOVE SHOMI BOOKS! πŸ™‚

  6. I pimped you and your contest. This reminds me I have Kenin’s Driven and need to read it.

    Good luck to all the other pimpers!

  7. I’ve read HIDDEN and DRIVEN by Eve Kenin. I want to read NETHERWOOD by Michele Lang, COUNTDOWN by Michelle Maddox, IRREVERSIBLE by Liz Maverick, and PHENOMENAL GIRL 5by A.J. Menden.

  8. I have never read any of these books, but have heard many good things about them. Most of my books I pick because of word of mouth . Let me tell you I have heard a mouthful about these books. Enter me please.

    I like cowboys, brides and babies. How in the heck did I wind up a Shomi fan?!?!

    I’ve read Driven, Hidden, Countdown and Moongazer.

  10. I just received Hidden and Driven from Amazon, and yes one of the reasons I decided too get them know was because of the info on the blog here. Netherwood and Moongazer, also interest me.

  11. Loved Eve Kenin’s Driven and Hidden, and now have Netherwood and Wired in the TBR, and want the rest, especially Kay Austin’s time travel. I like this line because it’s a great mix of sci-fi, urban fantasy and paranormal. Don’t have a blog, but Kenin’s high recommend on my two reader groups.

  12. I’ve heard of a few of these but I’ve never read them. They sound really good though so I’d be interested in reading any of them.


  13. I received an autographed copy of Driven by Eve and have a copy of Hidden but haven’t read that one yet. I’m so looking forward to reading and getting my hands on Countdown. Thanks for the wonderful opportunity at all these books! tWarner419@aol.com

  14. I have a copy of Countdown in my TBR but haven’t read it yet. I’m looking forward to reading Hidden and Moongazer. Why? I’ve heard a lot of good things & then found this wonderful contest here so I know I really need to check them out soon.

  15. I would love to read these thanks to your blog. I haven’t read any so far, but have heard good things.

    Thank you,

  16. From the 7 you have up, I’ve only read Time Transit and Moongazer. I’ve also read Driven by Eve Kenin. As for what I want to read next, well I think all of the SHOMI books that I haven’t read are on my wishlist. But the one I’m looking forward to most is Phenomenal Girl 5 by A.J. Menden.

    I’ve also left a link of this at my blog. It’s off to the side.

  17. I have read Driven and Hidden by Eve Kenin and loved them. Would definitely love to try some more Shomi books.


  18. Wow, great contest! The spotlight is totally working – I haven’t read any of Shomi books yet, but some were added to my TBR list because of you guys. Countdown, Twist, and Hidden are the ones that jump out at me at the moment.

  19. I posted on the other blog about the contest, but wanted to make sure I added here and let you know where I posted at


    I’m so excited about each book out! I so can’t wait to get HIDDEN and the future books! I keep checking whats coming up on Amazon and Dorchester site!
