Mondo Christmas E-Book Giveaway!



To celebrate the holidays, I'm having a mondo international giveaway of many of my books on Kindle from December 19-December 21. (My publishers retain some rights to my books so I can't give them all away everywhere.) For those outside the US, the contest ends midnight 12/21 Pacific Standard Time, so I think you'll be able to get your freebies though that time.
  • Midnight Brunch at Casa Dracula, The Bride of Casa Dracula, and Nancy's Theory of Style will be available for free internationally.
  • Happy Hour at Casa Dracula will be available for free outside the US.
  • Dark Companion, my YA Gothic, will be available for free in all countries except the US, Canada, and the Philippines.
Here are some reviews of Dark Companion, which was nominated as Best Fiction for Young Adults by the American Library Association's YALSA group.
 
"Dripping in delicious Gothicism. From the quotes of Mary Shelley and Bram Stoker, to Jane’s eerie preoccupation and connection to the whispering birch trees that surround her cottage home… Acosta plays brilliantly with Gothic conventions and introduces young readers to the finer points of horror.”
—Danielle Binks, Alpha Reader 

“Dark secrets, hidden mysteries, disquieting realities, passion and romance… Without a doubt this is my favourite YA book of the year.”
—Love Vampires 

“Awesome stuff. Compelling and dynamic, Dark Companion lures you in, casting a distinct spell you won’t want to break. A modern Gothic with classic style.”
Leanna Renee Hieber, bestselling author of the Strangely Beautiful
and Magic Most Foul sagas 

"A Gothic atmosphere, Jane Eyre, a sweet romance, and feminism. I loved it!"
—The Book Smugglers

Please follow the following links to get my free ebooks and please share news of this giveaway with your friends. (I didn't include all the international links, so please check Amazon in your own country if it's not listed here.) Have a very wonderful Christmas!

Free Casa Dracula Books Today at Kindle!


I'm giving away three funny, flirty Casa Dracula novels today on Kindle! Here are a few recent customer reviews.
"Just like a good champagne, this novel is made of the finest ingredients, it bubbles and pops, is a little bit naughty, makes you feel fondness for almost every character you come across, takes you out of your prosaic life, and leaves you wanting more." -Pamela M
"I LOVE this series! There I said it and I will say it as many times as I need to. Marta Acosta does the impossible and brings something new to the Vampire table with the Casa Dracula series and the result is a hilarious, fun and amazing series that I am sad is over." --Larissa from Larissa's Bookish Life
"Just finished this series. Love her characters. They are so vivid you can see them clearly in your mind. Milagro has the best sense of humor and personality, yet you can feel her underlying pain and insecurity from her childhood. Very much recommend this series." --Garen Herd
Free today on Amazon Kindle are:


But wait, there's more! For a brief time I'm offering Happy Hour at Casa Dracula (Book 1) for free as a PDF or to read online here.

You're saying, "Is that all, Marta?" and I'm telling you, "No! That's not all!" Because for a limited time (like today) you can also get a bonus of my guide to writing a kickass query letter that will give you a much better chance of getting a literary agent.


Perhaps you're saying, "Geez, Marta, lots of authors give away free ebooks. Don't you have anything else for us?" YES! I can send you a personal handwritten card written with one of my vintage fountain pens and posted with vintage stamps. Send me an email with your mailing address to receive one.

PLEASE SHARE THIS GIVEAWAY NEWS WITH YOUR FRIENDS!

In other news, I'm not blogging because I'm writing and trying to complete on-going projects. My latest manuscript is with my agent know and I'm anxiously awaiting his opinion. I hope hope hope he loves it.

I'll be having another contest this week for new books and galleys!
