4th OF NEPTUNE COUNTDOWN GIVEAWAY!

Now there are 101 days left until the third installment of The Syrena Legacy trilogy, OF NEPTUNE, releases (May 13, 2014 people!). If you haven't had a chance to read the series yet, or you have a friend who has a friend who has a friend who hasn't read it yet, now is your/their chance!

Every Friday until OF NEPTUNE releases I'm giving away a signed set of OF POSEIDON and OF TRITON.  These giveaways are open internationally, because I do adore my international fans. :)

Here's how you enter for your chance to win:

1.) Leave a comment below, explaining why you want to win. Don't worry, you don't have to write a novel to catch my eye. I hate giveaways that make you jump through fiery hoops so let's keep it simple, eh? One winner will be chosen randomly each week. If you don't win, try try again! I'll repost this each Friday, which will represent a new chance to win.

2.) A winner will be chosen the following Thursday and notified via Twitter. Winners will be announced on Twitter, not on this blog, so leave your Twitter handle in your comment. If you do not leave your Twitter handle, you will not be chosen. This is how I will contact you if you win. This is a Twitter based contest.

3.) That's it. Easy schmeasy, right? But remember, just because you don't have to jump through hoops, you *could* help me spread the word about the giveaway if you lub me and if you have time or whatever. You know. No pressure. So...

READY SET GO!!!!!!

  2. OMG please pick me I enter every week. This is my favorite mermaid trilogy. When I pre-ordered Of Triton and then read it I was happy with the way it ended but sad that it might be final. Then you posted a couple weeks later about Of Neptune and I was so excited. I called my niece up and we screamed together. I stalked Goodreads to see the cover reveal and cant believe in just a couple more months and it will be here. @FallonVaughn

  10. I really really super duper want to win. I really really love the books! How often are there really well written books about mermaids? (Not very often, I'm guessing since these are the only ones I've read).

  16. I'd just love to read your series, Anna. They've caught my eye many times but because of other review copies that have shown up in my mailbox, I've had to give them top priority over those novels I'd like to read. Your novels sound fascinating and are made all the more intriguing given that the stories center on mermaids.

    Thanks for this opportunity, Anna.

  17. I so love the series. I'm very thrilled upon knowing that there is a third installment. I cant wait to witness more romance between Emma and Gale as well as Toraf and Rayna. I would love to have signed copies of this books because I adore the plot and the story line and of course the characters. :)
    More power Ms. Anna Banks.
    I'm looking forward not only to Of Neptune but also to your future novels.
    Thumbs up! :))))

  19. Need to know what happens with this Reed guy. As much as of a love-hate relationship I have with love triangles, I think it's hilarious to see Galen jealous; thus, this will make the book extremely funny. That's why I want to read the book.

  24. Hello, I'm from Brazil and your books are being well recomended around the book communities, I would love to read them!!! I want to gain this giveaway, pleaaaaaaase, because when the book are translated is never the same, the words the writer chooses is what makes the book special... I hope to know you and your writing through your books ...Kelly F Hardt @kefavero

  25. What can I say? I want to win simply because I am impatient and would LOVE to get my hands on Of Neptune, like, NOW. Don't get me wrong, I will buy it when it comes out if I don't win, but since I don't live near big cities where book tours happen, it would be great to get it signed! So yeah, I'm getting it one way or another (though I would rather have it sooner than later). ;)

  26. Please pick me. I want to win because your books are my favorite possibly of all time. I relate to Emma more than any other character I have ever read about in a book. I wish I could bring her out because we would be best friends. All of your characters are so amazing and I love your writing.

  28. asdfghjkl I only started OF POSEIDON not long ago and reread it countless times already, and I'm trying so hard to hunt OF TRITON down so badly. I want to win because I adore you and your fantabulous writing, and also because Galen and Emma are so cute together. /fangirls/

  33. I would like to win this giveaway because, these books are amazing, as soon as I read the first chapter of Of Poseidon I fell in love with it. I really connected with the characters, I couldn't put it down. Then as soon as I finished the first book I immediately went back to my library for the second one Of Triton. I read it in two days. So since I don't own an copy of these books I would really love to win.

  34. I'd LOVE to win the series 'cause it's obviously been missing from my collection. And I would love nothing more than to revel in the love story of Galen and Emma through the actual books, and not the e-books. :D

  35. I would like to win because really want to read the second book "Of Triton"because when I read the first book "Of Posieden" I completely fell in love with the book and now hearing that there is going to be a third book when I haven't even read the second book .I am going to scream cause I cant wait to find out what happens to Emma and Galen.Also when I read you books and at the back of "Of Posieden" where it tells the reader what inspire you to right the series you inspire me to right my own and find a hobby that I like to do. I just can't wait to read the second and third book of "Of Posieden."

  38. Another chance! I want to win these books because I love keeping physical copies of the books I've read. It is hard to find the books in our place. I really love to have my own copy of a fanciful book about mermaids in my room.

  39. I like to read brilliant books more than once, since I always tend to miss details the first time around. My parents, though, don't really approve of me buying books because the money could be used on other things (family's too practical ahah) so I usually end up waiting for months and months before I can get a book I want to read in the library, and that's just for the first read! So it would be wonderful to be able to read the two back to back, over and over again (yes, they are THAT amazing) without the bloody wait!

    Thanks,

  40. I would love to win because the Syrena Legacy trilogy is my go-to series when I am in need of snark and major hilariousness. When I found out about the series I squealed out loud because it was the first book about mermaids....ahem Syrena.... that looked amazing and that I wanted to read. I only have the books in digital format and I would love to have physical copies of the books (the covers are so pretty!) Also, I think if I won a signed book from you then I would start screaming and never stop.
    I live on the opposite side of the country which is way to far for me to ever possibly convince my parents to make a road trip to Florida to go to one of your book signings and get Of Poseidon and Of Triton signed. Trust me, I’ve tried.

  41. I absolutely love this series!! Owning signed copies of some of my favorite books signed by one of my favorite authors would be-here comes the cliche-a dream come true! Yes it sounds cheesy but it's seriously true 100%. This is so amazing! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!

  42. Hello, Mrs. Anna Banks!

    I just adore your work, so so much. I borrowed Of Poseidon from the library about a year ago and I fell in love with your writing, your plot, and your characters. I read Of Poseidon all in one night, staying up until about two in the morning. I absolutely HAD to read the next one and when Of Triton came out, I all but begged my librarian to buy a copy. I would love to own these books more than ANYTHING, but as a student at college, most of the money I earn goes towards tuition. Even though I wouldn't trade going to college for anything, it is a bummer that I can't buy some of my favorite books to hold and read as much as I desire. I loved your books so so much, and to own them would be amazing. It was a very sad day when I had to return Of Poseidon and Of Triton to the library. It would mean the world to me if I could win these books, not to mention if they were SIGNED. My heart might explode from happiness.

    Whether I win or not, thank you so so much for the opportunity to possibly win your books. I appreciate it greatly. :)
    Sincerely,
    Amoolya (@rozabeiikova)

  43. Book giveaway statement:

    (Warning, I tend to use a lot of exclamation marks!!! <--See what I mean? Well, hello!! My name is Ariella and I would love to win the contest because I desperately loved Of Poseidon and I recommended it to all my friends! I am very excited to read Of Neptune!! I actually picked up Of Poseidon at Barnes and Noble and didn't expect to love it as much I did because I normally don't read books with that particular genre! I must say that it was truly fascinating and hilarious! I probably chose the worse setting to read Of Poseidon, which was in a remarkably quiet doctors office. I probably looked insane because first of all, I am a teen that actually reads instead of texts and who actually laughs while reading a book the way most people laugh while watching stand up comedy?! So, I got a few stares, but who cares as long as I enjoy myself and the book I'm reading!! Anyways, I don't want to bore you any further, so I'll end it here!! Thank you for your amazing writing and your great sense of humor!! One last thing, I am doing a project in school that involves writing about my inspiration, I chose you because you opened my eyes to new genres of books and truly enhanced my love for reading like no other author has done! Thank you very much for that. So, have a nice day!!

  45. Hey, My name is Ria and I would love to win this series. I actually own all the copies of your books so far (of neptune pre-ordered) but I only have these on kindle and it's kinda hard to show how amazing your books are without the hard copies (and I love owning the hard copies of books, there's something amazing about physically touching the book you read, right?) I love this series and the witty banter between characters and I hope to see it in the next book which i am dying to read, anyway (sorry I get off topic a lot) I want to win this because this is an amazing series and I want everyone else to value it's amazingness (I don't think that's a word)

  47. First off, I just want to thank you for being an AMAZING author and for doing generous giveaways like these! Ok, back to business.............PLEASE PICK ME \ [>_<] / I remember the first time I stumbled upon OF POSEIDON at my school library.....it was a fantastic and enlightening moment! That day I became an "Anna Banks" official fan!!! After I finished OF POSEIDON I bought my own copy and then forced my school library to get OF TRITON when it came out.......luckily the librarian and me go way back......well only about three years ago during my sophomore year but let's not think about that! Anyway, PLEASE PICK ME because it's almost my 18th birthday (Feb 20th-- I would show you my birth certificate but my mom lost it) and winning this giveaway would be one of the best presents!!! Thank you for reading my plead!

  53. Well this is easier than any essay I've ever had to write. I want to win because during my senior year of highschool we passed along the first book. We did that a lot and it was a stress reliever and it was something to talk and think about other than stressing about graduation. Over summer and fall we did the same with the second and it kept us connected. Having all of them signed and getting the third book would mean a lot to me because it would remind me that you don't have to see someone everyday to still be friends. Sometimes its enough to know that you're reading the same thing and going through the twists in the plot together. Thanks

  55. I read both of your books back-to-back in one night over Thanksgiving Break last year. I absolutely loved them! The story is so interesting and unique. After reading them, I found my passion for all things mermaids rekindled. I was inspired and decided to start a tumblr page dedicated to my perception of mermaids (http://nauticalnymphs.tumblr.com). I even posted a little review of your books! (page 4) I would really love to win this giveaway, because I only keep books that I truly love on my bookshelf. Having signed copies would be a dream come true. Thank you for this beautiful story! @nauticalnymphs

  57. The way you write your books are amazing! I have read many books about mermaids, but this one is my favorite. (I especially love at how you call them syrena instead of mermaids. Very unique.) I love re-reading books and instead of going to the library to continuously check out of poseidon and of triton, I would just have my own copies SIGNED BY YOU! Your writing truly inspires me and I can't wait to read OF NEPTUNE. Honestly, I thought this series ended, but when I heard this book was coming out, I literally jumped up and down screaming and even called my cousin who is also a great fan of your work. I would be very grateful if I won this contest and look forward to reading of neptune! Right now, May seems so far away. :( @brittany_phan
