For #JIAM (June is Audiobook Month), we're doing a series of giveaways of our FAVORITE audiobooks! Today, thanks to the AMAZING Recorded Books, I have a giveaway that is SO special to me. I just can't explain to you how much love I have for this audiobook. Next to the Harry Potter audiobooks, this is my VERY favorite series! I'm really excited to be giving away a copy of The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima.
Times are hard in the mountain city of Fellsmarch. Reformed thief Han Alister will do almost anything to eke out a living for himself, his mother, and his sister Mari. Ironically, the only thing of value he has is something he can’t sell. For as long as Han can remember, he’s worn thick silver cuffs engraved with runes. They’re clearly magicked—as he grows, they grow, and he’s never been able to get them off.
Han’s life gets even harder after he takes a powerful amulet from the son of the High Wizard. The amulet once belonged to the Demon King, the wizard who nearly destroyed the world a millennium ago. With a magical piece so powerful at stake, the Bayars will stop at nothing to reclaim it from Han.
Meanwhile, Raisa ana’Marianna, Princess Heir of the Fells, has her own battles to fight. Although Raisa will become eligible for marriage after her sixteenth name-day, she isn't looking forward to trading in her common sense for a prince with a big castle and tiny brain. Raisa aspires to be like Hanalea—the legendary warrior queen who killed the Demon King and saved the world. But it seems like her mother has other plans for her—plans that include a suitor who goes against everything the Queendom stands for.
Don't forget that Recorded Books has a few cool things going on for audiobook month as well:
We want to know what audiobooks mean to people. So we're inviting librarians, educators, and audiobook lovers to record a short (1 minute max) video that tells us about their favorite audiobook moment, or write a few lines about what audiobooks mean to them and post the video on YouTube or Vimeo and send us the link via facebook.com/recordedbooks, twitter.com/recordedbooks, or email (kjennah[plus]JIAM[at]recordedbooks[dot]com). At the end of the month, we'll pick two winners who will get a personalized voicemail message for their library read by AudioFile Golden Voices George Guidall or Barbara Rosenblat! Please note that all people who enter the contest consent to have their video and words used in marketing materials for Recorded Books.
On the RB blog (http://www.recordedbooksblog.com), we'll be featuring "favorite audiobook moments" from some of our narrators, including Simon Vance, Robin Miles, Barbara Rosenblat, Christina Moore, Jenny Sterlin, Andrew Garman, Robert Ian Mackenzie, George Guidall, Carol Monda, Johnny Heller, Mark Turetsky, and many more.
At this year's ALA conference (2012 Annual Conference, Anaheim, CA: June 21–26, 2012), anyone who participates in a demonstration of OneClickdigital or any of our digital products will receive a copy of Robyn Carr’s “Hidden Summit” and be entered to win a free iPad! We are booth #900.
