Eclipse the Moon ARC Winners & Chapter Two!

Eclipse the Moon ARC Winners, plus read the first two chapters. Available July 12, 2002, preorder now!

Thank you all for entering! I loved reading your comments, and we started watching Strange New Worlds because several of you suggested it, and it’s great!

This week, I sent off book three to my editor!! 🎉 This was my final contracted book, and it’s a huge relief that I actually made it to the end, because it was looking kind of iffy there for a bit. But I’m happy with how it turned out, and it’ll be even better after my editor is done with it, lol.

I don’t quite know what’s next, but for the immediate future, I’m taking some vacation time because the first half of this year was solid work. Woo, rest!

The random number generator has chosen the following winners, and there were so many comments, I decided to pick four winners instead of three. :) Please follow the links to see if it’s actually your comment because there were some duplicate names.

#35 – Julie Hillis
#27 – Kaitlyn
#87 – Sarah (there were lots of Sarahs, but this was Spring Cleaning Sarah) :)
#118 – Elissa

WINNERS: Send me an email at mihalikwrites AT gmailDOTcom with the subject line ARC Winner, and please use the same email address you used when you commented. You can also use the contact form. Include your name, address, and the name you’d like for personalization, if desired.

I’ve put up chapter two of Eclipse the Moon over on the book page for everyone who didn’t win this time. :)

We’re just three and a half weeks away from release, so even if you didn’t win, you won’t have to wait too long to get your hands on a copy!

I’ve finally finished writing the third book in the Starlight’s Shadow series, so it’s time to celebrate with a giveaway! 🎉

Eclipse the Moon, the second book in the series, releases in less than five weeks on July 12, but you can enter for a chance to read it even sooner! Keep reading for details. :)

As a reminder, I’ve partnered with BookPeople to offer signed copies of ETM (plus backlist books!!), so if that’s something that interests you, get your orders in now because a lot of my previous books are on backorder with a 7-10 day lead time.

And I was too braindead during the last blog post to mention it, but the first fifty-ish ETM preorders from BookPeople will come with a bookmark and stickers! The bookmark is the same one from the HTS release, but the stickers are different. :)

Acclaimed author Jessie Mihalik returns with an exciting new novel about a rainbow-haired female bounty hunter tasked with preventing an interstellar war.

Kee Ildez has been many things: hacker, soldier, bounty hunter. She never expected to be a hero, but when a shadowy group of traitors starts trying to goad the galaxy’s two superpowers into instigating an interstellar war, Kee throws herself into the search to find out who is responsible—and stop them.

Digging up hidden information is her job, so hunting traitors should be a piece of cake, but the primary suspect spent years in the military, and someone powerful is still covering his tracks. Disrupting their plans will require the help of her entire team, including Varro Runkow, a Valovian weapons expert who makes her pulse race.

Quiet, grumpy, and incredibly handsome, Varro watches her with hot eyes but ignores all of her flirting, so Kee silently vows to keep her feelings strictly platonic. But that vow will be put to the test when she and Varro are forced to leave the safety of their ship and venture into enemy territory alone.

Cut off from the rest of their team, they must figure out how to work together—and fast—because a single misstep will cost thousands of lives.

Read the first chapter!

It’s December, and that means we’re less than two months away from the release of Hunt the Stars on February 1! Cue panicked screaming, lol. To celebrate the upcoming release and get in the holiday spirit, I’m giving away five signed ARCs (advance reader copies).

See below for details on how to enter, but first, here’s a message from our sponsor—me! :)

The supply chain is kind of a mess right now, so if you want a paper book at release, I strongly suggest preordering it. To help you out, I’ve partnered with three independent bookstores to do signed books / bookplates. See this blog post for full details or just dive in and order from your favorite below!

Signed books / bookplates, while supplies last:
BookPeople | Copper Dog Books | Mysterious Galaxy
Please read the ordering instructions carefully!!!

Is an ebook more your style? Luckily, so far the ether that powers the internet hasn’t run low, but I would still really appreciate a preorder if you’re so inclined. :)

The critically acclaimed author of Polaris Rising takes readers on an exciting journey across the galaxy with the start of her brand-new series about a female bounty hunter and the man who is her sworn enemy.

Octavia Zarola would do anything to keep her tiny, close-knit bounty hunting crew together—even if it means accepting a job from Torran Fletcher, a ruthless former general and bitter adversary. When Torran offers her enough credits to not only keep her crew afloat but also hire someone to fix her ship, Tavi knows that she can’t refuse—no matter how much she’d like to.

There’s just one catch: with so much money on the line, Torran and his crew insist on joining the hunt. Tavi reluctantly agrees because while the handsome, stoic leader pushes all of her buttons—for both anger and desire—she’s endured worse, and the massive bonus payment he’s promised for a completed job is reason enough to shut up and deal.

But when they uncover a deeper plot that threatens the delicate peace between humans and Valoffs, Tavi suspects that Torran has been using her as the impetus for a new war. With the fate of her crew balanced on a knife’s edge, Tavi must decide where her loyalties lie—with the quiet Valoff who’s been lying to her, or with the human leaders who left her squad to die on the battlefield. Because this time, her heart is on the line.

My publisher is also running a new Goodreads giveaway this month, so if you’d like to increase your odds of reading the book early, you can hop over there and enter!

And now, what you’re all here for!

To enter to win an ARC, here are the rules. Please read them all! Incomplete entries will be ignored.
Update: Entries are now closed. Winners will be announced soon! Thank you all for participating!

  1. The entry period starts now and ends on December 17, 2021 at noon CST. You must be eighteen or older. Open to US and international readers. Void where prohibited.
  2. Leave ONE top-level comment (i.e., not a reply to another comment) below and tell me something positive about 2021 or something you’re proud you accomplished this year. Let’s celebrate the end of the year with some positives, because I don’t know about you, but I could certainly use some cheer. :)
    1. ALSO INCLUDE whether you are in the US or International. Shipping costs are out of control right now, so I’m limiting it to a max of two international winners. I will still pick by random number, but if two international comments have already been chosen, I’ll keep generating numbers until I hit a US comment. This means there may be zero, one, or two international winners, depending on how the RNG rolls. Good luck!
    2. Duplicate top-level comments will be deleted. You are welcome to reply to other comments, though, because those won’t count as entries.
  3. Comments must be on the giveaway blog post on my site (www.jessiemihalik.com). Comments on Facebook, Goodreads, etc. won’t count.
  4. Come back after December 17 and see if you’ve won! Five winners will be picked by random number and must claim their book. Instructions will be included in the winning post.

I’ll start: I wrote and edited Eclipse the Moon this year (and I’m in the US, just for completeness sake). Writing has been super difficult all through the pandemic, so I’m proud that I wrote a book that I love this year! And 2021 brought us COVID-19 vaccines, so I’m very happy about that, too. :)

Oh, and I’m far too happy about this quick little quiz I made that tells you which Starlight’s Shadow crew member you’d be, so while you wait to see if you won, why don’t you mosey over there and check it out?

Happy holidays!
