Who wants a signed Melissa Marr book?

I promised you a Smart Chicks contest, and here it finally is!

I had a blast at Smart Chicks when they visited Keplers Books in Menlo Park. (Where, incidentally, I will be signing with Sophie Jordan and Kiersten White this coming Monday.) There were shenanigans, and prizes, and books! What else could anyone ever want? Melissa Marr has been wonderful about promoting Personal Demons. She recommended it on her blog back in March and she's currently giving away six signed ARCs.

You've already heard me swoon all over her and tell you she's my biggest writing influence. So, I, of course, went all fangirl when I met her and had her sign all my books!

And guess what? I had her sign one for you too!!! Here's your chance to win a signed hardcover of Radiant Shadows, the fourth book in the Wicked Lovely series.
If you haven't read this series, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? I love all the books, but am partial to Ink Exchange (#2).

In her contest post, Melissa says Luc reminds her of Irial, her favorite of her Dark characters. I take that as a huge complement, because her Dark boys (Irial and Niall) from Ink Exchange are my all time favorite bad boys. The second book in my Personal Demons series, Original Sin, just went to production yesterday. It's very dark, and I worried it might be too dark. But every time I felt myself wavering, I thought to myself, what would Melissa Marr do? She made me fearless and let me tell the story that Luc and Frannie needed to tell.

So, I'm very excited that I can offer up a signed copy of Radiant Shadows for one lucky winner. To enter, you must be a follower and leave a comment below by Wednesday, October 6th (midnight PST). You get one extra entry if you follow me on Twitter (@LisaDez). Only one entry per person, please.

Good luck and happy reading! =)


  1. Looks like you had a great time! I wish there were author signing in Montreal, Canada so I can experience this frenzy!

    I'd love to win Radiant Shadow ^^ I own the first 3 books at home but not that one.

  5. I love it. It's funny to me as I meet more authors how they all have their own personal favorites they get ga ga over. Reminds me they're real people like me. :)

  19. I love the Wicked Lovely series. My favourite character is Seth but I adored Radiant Shadows. It was just such a great story that made me want so much more Devlin/Ani action. I would love a signed book of hers but is it open internationally? I am from the UK.

  20. I LoVe this series. I love meeting some of my favorite authors too and start going berserk. (I try to hide it = )

  21. I still don't have Radiant Shadows, and I'd love to get it of course! Crossing my fingers!

  22. I've read the first three - so I would love to get a signed copy of the 4th. Fantastic contest! Already a follower.

  23. Eeeekk LOVE HER!
