Spring Blog Carnival!



I'd like to thank Lori from Pure Imagination, Candace from Candace's Book Blog, and Angela from Reading Angel for organizing this event. :-)

I participated in this event last year and had so much fun that I just had to do it again!

I'll go over everything so that you know what is happening.

The Carnival is like a Blog Hop only there are challenges and games to play in order to win prizes. The carnival will take place from May 6th through May 12th!

Each blog is sponsoring a different type of booth and the prize should fit in with the theme.

I'm hosting the same type of booth this year as I did last year. :D


Welcome to the Alpha Arcade!






     




Obviously I LOVE werewolf and Shifter books!

This gives me a great opportunity to share that love with all of you.  :D

Here's the Deal Boys and Girls,

Anyone 13 vears of age or older may enter my Booth.
International followers are welcome to play, provided The Book Depository ships to you.

You can play the games daily from May 6th - 12th

Each day there will be 2 new challanges You can wait and do them all at the end if that is easier for you!

Don't worry I'll try not to make them real hard. Some will be unscrambling the name of an Alpha and identifying the book they come from, some will be naming the mate of an Alpha, some will be multiple choice, etc....

The trick is, only correct answers count. Wrong answers will be deleted. It wouldn't be a challenge otherwise!

A main point that I would like to stress is that ALL ANSWERS MUST BE PLACED IN THE RAFFLECOPTER!!!! DO NOT PLACE ANSWERS IN THE COMMENTS!!!!

Stop back to complete all of the challenges!


Now what can you win?

The prize, should you be lucky enough to win, will be a werewolf or shifter book of your choice from one of the series pictured below or used in the challenges.

There will be three winners!

Winners will be contacted via email and must respond within 48 hours.


Answer this question and enter May's comment incentive giveaway as well. The link is at the top of the page.

Who is your favorite Alpha?











Thank you for stopping by. :-)

Make sure that you come back tomorrow for more chances to win!


Don't forget to swing by all of the other awesome Booths in the Carnival.

    1. Awesome! I'm glad to hear it. :D I wanted it to be a challenge without being too difficult. I also wanted to throw in some of the recent shifter books that I posted about. I figured the people who visit often would easily know what books I was referring to so why not give them an extra leg up.

      Happy Mothers Day!

  19. Happy Mothers Day everyone!

    I just wanted to let you all know that it may take me a few days to post the winners. I have to check all of the answers first and that may take a little while.

    I'll get to it ASAP though!

    ReplyDelete
  20. That was a lot of fun, thanks for all of your hard work!
    P.S. I'm a little sad that you left out Conall Maccon from the Parasol Protectorate series by Gail Carriger. If you haven't read it, I highly recommend it!

    1. I have not read it. The cover looked a little odd to me and I didn't realize there were shifters in it. Thanks for the recommendation. It'll go on the TBR list. :D

      Delete
    2. It's a steampunk/paranormal. There are vamps, weres, and the main character is a preternatural.

      Delete
    3. I knew it was steampunk. I just didn't realize there were paranormal creatures in it. I didn't really look past the cover unfortunately!

      Delete
    4. i've got book 1 i think but i didn't know they were shifters in it either^^ glad to know though^^
