Win a $100 Amazon gift card with Samie Sands - Living on Borrowed Time!

An endless future has been stretched out in front of us...

Samie Sands is a freelance graphic designer who followed her lifelong dream and uses her creativity in a new way by writing. With a degree in Media Studies and PR, Samie has already had articles published in a number of e-zines, including one of the most popular pieces at Zombie Guide Magazine.

She lives in a small seaside town in the UK, but loves to travel to gain inspiration from new places and different cultures.


You probably know by now that author Samie Sands has a zombie series called AM13 Outbreak, which you've likely seen from our previous features.

But she also writes women's fiction and romance! Living on Borrowed Time isn't your ordinary love story...

Lara Rogers isn’t supposed to be here. She was supposed to die over a year ago from a long-term illness, yet somehow she managed to make a miracle recovery. The only problem is now she has an endless future stretched out in front of her—one that she wasn’t expecting, and one that she has no idea what to do with.

After she got the positive diagnosis, she moved to the big city where she knows no one to become another anonymous face, but this life isn’t making her happy. In fact, she’s more miserable than ever.

An unexpected night out with a girl that seems to want to be her friend leads to all sorts of new experiences, including one that might even be love...

The only problem is Lara has spent so long not knowing who she is, that she doesn’t know how to act around all of these new people, and slowly things become increasingly difficult for her. She begins a negative spiral into self-destructive behavior, sinking deeper and deeper until she isn’t sure that she can ever get out.


Still curious about the author? Here are a few Q&As with Samie from last time...

What are some of the challenges you face when writing?
I think like most writers, it’s having the time to write and the right inspiration at the same time! The two very rarely seem to meet which can get frustrating!

How do you market your books?
I always find giving a little sample of the book is good, it gives people a little glimpse of what’s to come. Picking one for Not Dead Yet was hard because there are so many varied characters in so many weird and wacky situations. I also had movie scripts, diary entries, letters, and many more to choose from. But I decided to go for Luke Yates, a middle-aged man from Australia, who’s struggling with the loneliness brought on by the zombie apocalypse.

Other than writing, what are you working on these days?
I’m pretty much just writing. When I’m not writing books, I’m publishing articles, reviews, and other content. I don’t ever seem to be away from my laptop!

So who wants to win something?!

For the first time ever with an author, Samie Sands and I have partnered up to give away a $100 Amazon gift card to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

$50 Amazon gift card and vampire author Rosemary A Johns

Up next is a book you can sink your teeth into. One that offers an escape...

Rosemary A Johns writes sexy British anti-heroes, savage vampires, and epic battles. Rosemary writes fantasy for rebels because she writes what she loves to read. Also what she wishes she could discover.



That’s where the rebel comes in: Rosemary has always been a rebel!

She's been traditionally published as a short story writer. She's given readings and talks about dark fiction. The rebels in her head, however, were clamoring to get out and have their say in novels as well.

And who says no to a vampire?

Vampire Huntress is the first book of the Rebel Angel Series. Vampires and angels are locked in a deadly war. But first, they want their daughter back.

Half vampire/half angel, Violet, was abandoned among the humans in London as a baby. Suddenly discovering monstrous powers on her twenty-first birthday, she thinks she’s the most dangerous creature to prowl the streets.

She’s wrong.

When a snarky angel falls into her lap and her adopted sister disappears, Violet is forced into a new role: Huntress. But the deeper she’s dragged into this supernatural world, the more she struggles to survive.

On the run, Violet will have to rely on a sexy vampire geek, while facing off the harem boy angel threatening her sister. And there’s only one way she’ll win: by letting out the monster…

Dunkin Donuts gift card and author Julie C Gilbert [giveaway]

If you enjoy coffee and a good book, turn to Julie C. Gilbert for your next read. 

Julie mainly confines her writing to three genres: Christian inspirational, YA real-world science fiction, and normal science fiction.

Writing has made her super picky about the things she reads, but normally, her reading list includes something that fits under thriller, mystery, science fiction, or fantasy.


The first book in her Redeemer Chronicles series, Awakening, is a fast, captivating fantasy told from several points of view. There are even some zombies!

Victoria Saveron knows two things for certain. Dark forces want to kill her, and her friends have cooler powers than she does. Katrina can shapeshift and Tellen can tap into destructive magic currents.

Everything else is uncertain and rumors abound.

Victoria might be the Chosen One, whatever that means. Her father might be able to help them, but only if they can find him. Coldhaven’s villagers might be able to offer them food and shelter. Some fool might be running around unlocking Darkland portals to raise an undead army.

The further Victoria and her companions get on their journey, the more dangers and betrayals they face. They must awaken Vic’s true powers or forfeit the world.


Want to know a bit more about the author?

Julie C. Gilbert is once again answering to “Miss Gilbert” as a high school chemistry teacher. She also writes YA, science fiction, fantasy, and Christian stories about characters she comes to admire but certainly not envy.

How the characters deal with all the triumphs and troubles that come their way is always a fun adventure for her. When not writing or reading or lesson planning, she enjoys sunshine, coffee, long walks, tea, and video games, not necessarily in that order.

Occasionally, she attempts short poetry. The poems turn into songs, which she sings with abandon when nobody's looking.



So who wants to win something?!

Julie C. Gilbert and I have partnered up to give away a few things and there will be three (3) winners:
  • Winner #1 will get a $20 Dunkin Donuts gift card & paperback of Redeemer Chronicles 1: Awakening
  • Winner #2 will get a paperback of Redeemer Chronicles 1: Awakening
  • Winner #3 will get a paperback of Redeemer Chronicles 1: Awakening

$40 Amazon gift card and fantasy author Logan Joss

How's your courage and loyalty?

Logan Joss is a fantasy and science fiction author for teens and adults. He enjoys creating other worlds, be that straight up fantasy adventure or sci-fi, or else something in the realms of myth and magic. Or even a foray into the occult and demonology. He like to take real life and give it a bit of a twist!

For Logan, reading books provides a rest from reality and a chance to escape to a world which is truly anything you can imagine. Can you imagine as many things as he can?


One of Logan's favorite authors is Philip Reeve. His Mortal Engines series is fantastic and it was these books that inspired Logan to write The Harpy’s Song.

Stranded in a strange world, Trevor must choose between returning home and fighting for the future of Ëlamár.

But danger lies ahead. General Nirikó has gathered an army of the dead and means to lay siege to the beautiful city of Ârus, condemning all within to a fate far worse than death.

Trevor and his new friend Mèlli must cross carnivorous forests, travel in flying galleons and meet extraordinary creatures all to collect a single tear – from a dragon.

Trevor and Mèlli’s friendship is put to the test as their adventure unfolds and their conflicting goals are revealed. Will courage and loyalty prevail?


So who wants to win something?!

Logan Joss and I have partnered up to give away a couple things. One lucky Giveaway Guy reader will win a $40 Amazon gift card, and another ready will win a paperback of The Harpy's Song.
