Over the winter break, I developed a little obsession with a certain shifter heroine. Yes, I have succumbed to the charms of one Mercy Thompson, as created by the talented Patricia Briggs. I read every single book, including comic and spin offs that I could, but at least I didn't become so desperate as to read tourist guides to the Tri-Cities, while patiently waiting for today. Because today, River Marked, the newest Mercy Thompson book is released! To celebrate my new love of this series I have decided to devote March to Mercy, hence "Mercy March!" Why should basketball get all the fun with March Madness? We should have a little Moon Madness of our own! Not only will I be reviewing the Briggs canon, I will also be having a little giveaway! Because nothing says party time like free books, am I right? So site back, enjoy the chatter, and perhaps you could win yourself a book staring my favorite coyote shifter.

So onto the "official rules"...


The Prize:
The Patricia Briggs book of your choice (located within the world of Mercy Thompson). For all options go here.

The Rules:
1. Open to EVERYONE (for clarification, this means international, but no shipping to space stations or TARDI), just because you haven't been following me all along doesn't mean you don't matter, you just get more entries if you prove you love me by following.

2. Please make sure I have a way to contact you if your name is drawn, either your blogger profile or a link to your website/blog or you could even include your email address with your comment(s) or email me.

3. Contest ends Thursday, March 31st at 11:59PM CST (it is a full month celebration)

4. How to enter: Just comment in the space below!

5. And for those addicted to getting extra entries:

+1 for answering the question: If you were a shifter, what would you like to be able to shift into? Personally, I'd be a cat.

+2 for becoming a follower

+10 if you are already a follower

+10 for each time you advertise this contest - blog post, sidebar, twitter (please @MzLizard), etc. (but you only get credit for the first post, so tweet all you like, and I thank you for it, but you'll only get the +10 once). Also please leave a link!

Good luck!


Thanks for the giveaway.

I haven't had a chance to read any of the series as yet, there are just too many good series for me to afford to follow them all.

So the first book would be great.

+1 Answer: I would probably shift to a dog. I love all animals but I am terribly allergic to cats so that way I could get a bit of my own back by hassling cats !

+10 I am already a Follower via GFC (buddyt)

I'd most definitely be a cat, too, but a BIG cat. Most likely a jaguar, maybe a panther. Something powerful and slinky and intimidating, because why the hell not?

Anywho, I've been meaning and meaning to post about this, and just kept forgetting (I even bookmarked it and put it in my bookmarks bar, so I'd do it...didn't happen). BUT, since I just read River Marked, I figured the review was the perfect time to tell people about Mercy March, even if it is almost over.
So I did:


I'm an old follower, of course. And if it counts, the Mercy March post/review will be in my twitter feed, networked blogs feed and facebook feed in a matter of a few hours...
(So, about a gajillion points if that counts, 11 if it doesn't. =D)

Also, excellent use of TARDI.


I love this series! I just finished River Marked, but I'm anxious to start the branch-off series with Cry Wolf, so that would be my choice.

+2 new GFC Follower

+1 If I were a shifter, I would likely pick wolf because it makes the most sense for the climate I live in, and hey I could catch wild game for the dinner table!

I love the Mercy Thompson series. Moon Called is probably my favorite, but I would like to read Alpha and Omega. Thanks

If I was a shifter, I would be something feline...puma, perhaps.

I am a new follower. Thanks for the giveaway!


Thanks for the giveaway! Please count me in!

+1 If I were a shifter, I would like to be a panther!
