ABRAHAM LINCOLN, VAMPIRE HUNTER by Seth Grahame-Smith on Audiobook [Giveaway]

I know, I know, you're going, "WHAT?  She's doing another giveaway, already?"  But honestly, how could I resist?  I mean, Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter?  How awesome does this puppy sound?  I know you want to win one of three audiobook copies provided by the ever-generous Hachette Book Group, right?  Here's the book's description:

Indiana, 1818. Moonlight falls through the dense woods that surround a one-room cabin, where a nine-year-old Abraham Lincoln kneels at his suffering mother's bedside. She's been stricken with something the old-timers call "Milk Sickness."

"My baby boy..." she whispers before dying.

Only later will the grieving Abe learn that his mother's fatal affliction was actually the work of a vampire.

When the truth becomes known to young Lincoln, he writes in his journal, "henceforth my life shall be one of rigorous study and devotion. I shall become a master of mind and body. And this mastery shall have but one purpose..." Gifted with his legendary height, strength, and skill with an ax, Abe sets out on a path of vengeance that will lead him all the way to the White House.

While Abraham Lincoln is widely lauded for saving a Union and freeing millions of slaves, his valiant fight against the forces of the undead has remained in the shadows for hundreds of years. That is, until Seth Grahame-Smith stumbled upon The Secret Journal of Abraham Lincoln, and became the first living person to lay eyes on it in more than 140 years.

Using the journal as his guide and writing in the grand biographical style of Doris Kearns Goodwin and David McCullough, Seth has reconstructed the true life story of our greatest president for the first time-all while revealing the hidden history behind the Civil War and uncovering the role vampires played in the birth, growth, and near-death of our nation.

This giveaway is open to the US & Canada, to physical addresses.  That means that if you receive mail at a PO Box, you'll need to give us the address for where you physically live, or maybe work, so that you can get something from UPS or DHL a similar carrier.  It ends 4/30/10.

I got a couple of feedback notes that our form was too long.  I made it longer.  Not to spite you, but because I've found it to be an invaluable tool that allows me to communicate with you guys in an awesome way.  I've added a field for your Twitter ID because it's confusing with all of the tweeting and Aliases flying around, to coordinate referral points. The reason I ask you for your addresses on the form is because it makes it easier for me to coordinate winners that way.  You do NOT have to give your address on the form, but rest assured it is in safe hands and I'm not going to be stopping by your house or snooping on you or selling it to a junk mail company.  It just streamlines the giveaway process for us and makes things super easy, especially if you were to happen to miss the email I sent you congratulating you on your win!  Optional fields are noted, and do not have red stars by them, so make sure that if you want to speed through the form you only fill out the red-asterisked fields.
