Deliverance is here!


Giveaway of Swag Bag + $25 Amazon Gift Certificate!  Closed!
The lucky winner is Crystal B. 

I'm really busy (in a fun way) with the release of Deliverance right now, so as wrapped up as I am, that's all I can think of to talk about! I'll do better next month, promise. 

All three ebooks in the Mortal Path series, including Deliverance which just released March 27th, are on sale for $4.99 each. What a great time to start the series~~you can buy all of it in ebook form for $15! Just check your favorite ebook retailer.

Giveaways abound, listed on my blog at  http://dbanks.me/ActGive. In particular, I'd like to mention a bundle of ten newly released thrillers, all signed by the authors, on the Bookbitch site. Deadline to enter is March 31st. This one gives me the opportunity to rub shoulders with Harlan Coben, M.J. Rose, and Thomas Perry, among others. Free. Signed. Books.  From people other than me. Cool. 

I'd like to highlight a few reviews I've gotten so far and squeeze in links to their sites while also pushing my new release. Makes it a little more palatable, right? Double duty?

"Deliverance is wonderfully unpredictable, full of breathlessly exciting action scenes. Readers will be hooked till the very last page, and then will rush to pick up the others in the Mortal Path series." - RT Book Reviews

 “Deliverance transports us into another great adventure in Maliha’s quest for redemption. Ms. Banks has created a second to none but far from perfect heroine in Maliha and really makes us care about her whether she’s successful in her quest, The author’s skillful characterization supports some of the most intriguing plots I’ve seen.”Smitten with Bad Boy Heroes

 “I applaud Ms. Banks on delivering an action-packed book with a very intriguing story idea that's not your typical paranormal.” – Bitten by Paranormal Romance

Deliverance is sizzling hot and full of the trademark action that accompanies this fantastic series. I absolutely loved this book! The plot is outstanding as usual, full of twists and turns and incredible revelations. FANTASTIC. This series is definitely one of my favourites of all time.” – Bookaholics Book Club

“There is plenty of action, drama and suspense in Maliha's life as she continues to fight for redemption. Dakota's books are filled with unique adventures that leave your mind turning. With every book comes more understanding of Maliha's situation and what she might deal with in the future.” – Urban Fantasy Investigations
 
Deliverance is an exhilarating thriller in which the assassin feels she jumped from the frying pan into the fire. Filled with deft twists, sub-genre fans will wonder how the beleaguered protagonist will handle the Mt. Everest size deterrence to her goal of redemption.” – Alternative Worlds 

Deliverance is filled with action, suspense, raw honesty, and great drama. It's definitely the most high-stakes installment in the series yet and I couldn't put it down. Dakota has done a marvelous job of creating an untenable situation and forcing Maliha to deal with it.” – Tynga’s Reviews

Finally, because I love love love Supernatural Underground, I'd like to have a special giveaway here. My Mortal Path Swag Bag contains all three signed books plus a zippered tote bag, bookmarks, pens, magnets, and a yellow calculator, and on top of that, I'm adding a $25 Amazon gift certificate. Open internationally.

I adore your covers, and as a specialist bookbinder of rare and special books, I can appreciate them on a level that nobody else can; as a work of art, inside and out!!

So much so that I'm also sharing your link on my own facebook page so all my friends get a chance too.

But if I win, these will go straight to my special shelf of favourite authors from the supernatural underground!!
