Hunt the Stars ARC Giveaway!

Want to read HUNT THE STARS before February 1? Enter to win one of five ARCs! www.jessiemihalik.com/blog

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!

Chaos Reigning ARC Winners and Chapter Three!

I loved reading all of your comments! Thank you so much for sharing your small joys with me. 💕

The random number gods have spoken, and the following three people have won! Please follow the links to ensure it was your comment that was selected, just in case of duplicate names. :)

#59 – Kyle Wakeling

#130 – Warryn

#84 – Gale Miller

If you are one of the lucky three, please send me an email at mihalikwrites at gmaildotcom with the subject line ARC Winner. Include your name, address, and who you would like me to sign the book to (or if you prefer no inscription). I’ll get them in the mail asap!

And as a consolation prize for everyone else, I’ve put up Chapter Three! It’s only a few more days until you can read the whole book, but hopefully this will tide you over until then.

Finally, if you haven’t sent me your swag request for preordering CR, get it in! I’ve gotten just over 30 requests so far (and all but one verified! ❤️), so I still have some swag to give away!

Happy Friday!

If you still need to preorder, here you go! :)

Chaos Reigning ARC Giveaway!

ARC Flash Giveaway. Enter to win one of three ARCs! Three days only!

Most of my Chaos Reigning ARCs are trapped in the HarperCollins building while all of the employees are working from home. But my lovely editor arranged for a few extras they had on hand to be shipped to me so that I can give them away to you all!

Because it’s so close to release, this is going to be a much shorter giveaway than usual—just three days—and even then you probably won’t receive the book before release. Hopefully the wait will be worth it. :)

See below for details on how to enter, but first, may I tempt you with some delicious preorder bonuses?

Print Preorder Bonus! A picture of the four different bookplate designs as well as the button and bookmark. While supplies last, at participating bookstores.

If you want to support an independent bookstore and get some additional swag, including a bookmark, badass space princess button, and bookplate signed by yours truly, then you can preorder a print copy of CR from The Ripped Bodice, Love’s Sweet Arrow, or Mysterious Galaxy, while supplies last. Last I heard (see below for updates!), they each had about 15-20 preorders remaining, but you can probably contact them if you want to be really sure you’ll get the bonus items.

UPDATE 5/12 4:36PM: The Ripped Bodice is down to less than five, so get your orders in fast!

UPDATE 5/13 3:08PM: Mysterious Galaxy has also agreed to include preorder swag! They have 15-20 preorders remaining!

If you prefer to buy the ebook or the print book elsewhere, I’ve got you, too. I’ll send you a bookmark and sticker, and international readers are included, as long as USPS delivers first class mail to your country. More details later this week!

CHAOS REIGNING cover. A woman with dark, curly hair, in a long leather coat, facing left and holding a blaster. The background is an alien landscape with a planet and two moons in the sky and everything is shaded green-blue.

Interplanetary intrigue and romance combine in this electrifying finale to the Consortium Rebellion trilogy.

As the youngest member of her High House, Catarina von Hasenberg is used to being underestimated, but her youth and flighty, bubbly personality mask a clever mind and stubborn determination. Her enemies, blind to her true strength, do not suspect that Cat is a spy—which makes her the perfect candidate to go undercover at a rival House’s summer retreat to gather intelligence on their recent treachery.

Cat’s overprotective older sister reluctantly agrees, but on one condition: Cat cannot go alone. Alexander Sterling, a quiet, gorgeous bodyguard, will accompany her, posing as her lover. After Cat tries, and fails, to ditch Alex, she grudgingly agrees, confident in her ability to manage him. After all, she’s never found a person she can’t manipulate.

But Alex proves more difficult—and more desirable—than Cat anticipated. When she’s attacked and nearly killed, she and Alex are forced to work together to figure out how deep the treason goes. With rumors of widespread assaults on Serenity raging, communications down, and the rest of her family trapped off-planet, Catarina must persuade Alex to return to Earth to expose the truth and finish this deadly battle once and for all.

But Cat can’t explain why she’s the perfect person to infiltrate hostile territory without revealing secrets she’d rather keep buried…
