Giveaway: It's Time to Share the Love!!

Welcome to another exciting here on Hanging with Bells! I love to share and am so excited to share this months book with someone!

This month's giveaway falls on Friday the 13th *cue spooky music* so we are going to have a little fun with this month's giveaway! On 8/17/10 the author of this wonderful book is going to come on my blog for a Q&A session! This will be my very 1st author interview! I'm so excited! (Cue the Pointer Sisters - "I'm So Excited) I seriously sing this song when I'm excited. So let's get to me telling you what this month's book is shall we. The book I want to share this month is:

Touched by an Alien by Gini Koch!

Have you read this book yet?! Read this synopsis to get an understanding as to why I LOVE this book:

How can a sexy marketing manager join forces with an Alpha Centauri male in Armani to save the planet-using hairspray, a Mont Blanc pen, and rock n' roll? Easy... She's Touched by an Alien Marketing manager Katherine "Kitty" Katt steps into the middle of what appears to be a domestic dispute turned ugly. And it only gets uglier when the man turns into a winged monster, straight out of a grade-Z horror movie, and goes on a killing spree. Though Kitty should probably run away, she springs into action to take the monster down. In the middle of the chaos a handsome hunk named Jeff Martini appears, sent by the "agency" to perform crowd control. He's Kitty's kind of guy, no matter what planet he's from. And from now on, for Kitty, things are going to be sexy, dangerous, wild, and out of this world.

  1. I don't need to be entered into the contest because I have the book. I just finished reading it, and I am just as excited as you are about it. It was a fabulous, funny, exciting adventure and I am so looking forward to reading Alien Tango.

  2. I don't need to be entered because I already have the the ebook but, Bells, I gotta tell you I am going to go all sappy on ya with fave alien movie: Batteries Not Included. I know, I know - no fuglys in it but still - it always got to me. Now fave Alien tv show? Alf - I know I am so old school for one so young.

  3. I'm not a sci-fi fan but the few "alien" movies I've seen, I've loved. I know some people probably doesn't see this movie as an alien movie but it is: Predator. I watch that movie over and over and over. It is so good and it's Arnold at his best. "You are one ugly mother....!" Hahaha! I should go home and watch it tonight.

  4. WOW I have to pick ONE Movie? Umm ok

    Aliens-Predator-StarTrek-(2009 version)-AllOtherStarTreks-Aliens

  6. Favorite alien movie.. The original Star Wars trilogy. I can't really pick just one of them. My favorite alien tv show is Babylon 5, though Star Trek: Deep Space 9 is a close second. I have actually read surprisingly few alien books, but my current favorite is Grimspace by Ann Aguirre.

  7. So excited for this one, thanks for the contest Bells! My favorite book or movie...hmmm...I'm going to have to go with the first Predator movie. Arnold says maybe 8 words in that one and I don't know why, but I can watch it over and over:)


  8. I LOVED Event Horizon. So there's my answer. Thanks for the giveaway! ;-)

  9. Independence Day!! LOVE IT so much! I watch it all the time! AND I absolutely LOVE the new Star Trek.

  10. I have seen and heard about this book, but have not picked it up yet. Have heard many, many great things of it. :)

    What is my favorite movie with an alien? I have to say "My Step-Mothers an Alien" with Dan Akrod and Kim Bassinger. I thought it was a good funny family movie to watch. :) It's been a long time since I have seen it. I am going to have to rent it soon. :)

    Thanks for the chance to win this great book, and congrats on an author interview! :) Have fun!

  11. I have really got to read this one, what with all the favorable reviews floating around.

    Thanks for the giveaway! My favorite book with aliens is SPEAKER FOR THE DEAD.

  12. I'm so excited, too (now that damn song is stuck in my head and I'm thinking about the time that the Pointer Sisters guest starred on the Love Boat and Isaac wanted to join them!)

    Anyhow... I've wanted to read this book for SO LONG! I'll get to it someday. As for my favorite book with aliens - hands down it's DUNE... which is one of my all time FAVORITE books!! As for movies... too many great ones to even being naming.

    Thanks sweets!

  13. Well, MIB was my favorite movie with aliens so it's no surprise that I'd love to read this book. Please enter me and thanks for the contest.

  14. Touched By An Alien is definitely my favorite alien book. Though that could change once Alien Tango releases. For movie? Avatar? The new Star Trek? I'm torn. Maybe I'll have to wait for Touched to go big screen.

  15. I love just about every movie with aliens, especially if they are in space but my favourite: Star Trek II - they took a childhood favourite and made it even better.

    I would love to read this book and yes I'm a follower.[@]gmail[.]com

  16. This book sounds so good. I read so many good things about it and I so can't wait to get my hands on it. My favorite alien involved book or movie? Tough choice.
    For book: I completely adore Spektrum by Sergei Lukyanenko. I don't think it'S translated into English but if you can German or Russian this is the book for you. I adore his work. As for a movie it's hard to choose just one. *deep breath* I think I will go with Start Trek Nemesis: love that one and it always makes me cry. *Vulcan finger salute*
    Thanks for the chance to win hon.

  20. Gosh that cover is spicy!

    I know this probably isn't too romantic but when it comes to alien movies, I don't think I can go past "Alien". After seeing it as a kid I didn't sleep for two days lol.


  21. When I was a kid, I used to love My Favorite Martian. lol

    I also like Predator and Men in Black. :D


  22. Independence Day would have to be my favorite movie with aliens.


  23. i only get to pick one? that is very hard, but..... i got the biggest kick out of the last starfighter - i watched it again recently and was feeling nostalgic. i've heard such good things about this - been dying to read it!
