Official Have I Got A Deal For You

It's official because I've got the updates put in and thus made it easier for you to use!

THERE ARE TWO CONTESTS! Both end JUNE 19, the day Revealing Skills comes out in print.

For CONTEST ONE, you don't need a website or blog. You can just email me or post a comment. (although if you do have a blog or website and you did post the review, I'd be grateful. Unless, of course, you compare the book unfavorably to horse manure)
For CONTEST TWO, you need a website or blog. (This is a change because, as someone pointed out, anything else is too spammy)

CONTEST ONE: Review a book and be put in a drawing to win a thirty dollar gift certificate from Barnes and Noble, Amazon or Samhain, your choice.
Here's how it works: I'll send you any one of my books. See the list below. You then write a review and put it in your blog or somewhere online. If you don't have a website, you can post the review in my blog under comments or email it to me. (my email address is on the right side of the page under OTHER PAGES WHERE YOU'LL FIND ME)

You hate the book, well, I'll survive. And you'll be put in a pool to win a gift certificate ($30) at Barnes and Noble or Amazon. The only book not included in this offer is Taming Him.

CONTEST TWO: Announce this contest--along with a link to this blog--on your blog or website, alert me and show me the link, and I'll put you in a drawing for everyone's favorite, a THIRTY DOLLAR! gift certificate for Barnes and Noble, Amazon, OR Samhain, your choice.

Don't forget to give me an email address/snail mail address for CONTEST ONE and/or a link for CONTEST TWO

That's not so complex, right? And for the first one, you also get a free book by me!

To reiterate (literally "repeat in another color"):

1. Get a free book by Kate and or Summer and write and post something about it ("I loved/hated this book by Kate and/or Summer. You should/shouldn't buy it and read it because_____. Don't ask me to send my copy, because this one happens to be an ebook and we don't share our ebooks.")

Be put in a drawing pool for a THIRTY DOLLAR GIFT CERTICATE.
You have to write something that indicates you at least looked at the thing, for heaven's sake. Also I reserve the right to lift really good comments from your great reviews and the right to use author calming visualizations if you post how and why you loathed the book. Either way you'll be entered in the contest--and the winner is picked by random drawing.


2. Post this offer on your site or blog Send me a link to your post and be put into yet another drawing pool for another THIRTY DOLLAR GIFT CERTIFICATE.

Do both and be put in both pools.

Here're the books you can review--I've linked to descriptions of the titles:
by Kate Rothwell (both are print books)
Somebody Wonderful
Somebody to Love

Books by Summer Devon
Only ebooks, although I do have one meh paper copy of Learning Charity. Revealing Skills will be out in print--but the book is released the day the contest ends, no, only ebooks unless you pick up a copy of Taming Him or, maybe, if you beg me prettily, I'll send you Taming Him. But you must be eloquent.

at Ellora's Cave:
Invisible Touch

at Samhain:
Learning Charity
Revealing Skills

And here's one more by Kate,a rather peculiar ebook That's here, at booksforabuck, a great place, btw. Go Rob!

Have I left out any details? Let me know.
And don't forget to LET ME KNOW (and give me the appropriate information) if you're entering!


  1. Consider yourself pimped.

  2. wow, when you pimp, you pimp beautifully! Thank you. Wanna enter the other one too?

  3. Hi Kate! I'd be happy to do this for you! And big hello!

  4. Oops forgot to leave my link! I put the contest info up on my blog:

    (with the CHARITY cover, loved that one)

  5. Here is my email Kate. I guess I should have left it in my last comment. My bad - I was too busy killing plants in the name of gardening. LOL

    And advance copies are perfectly fine wiht me. I LOVE reading the stuff that doesn't make it in the final cut. Oh heck. I just love reading.



  6. Kate, you mean read a book and do a review? I can do that. Let me take a look at the books and I'll let you know which one I want to read.

  7. Okay, REVEALING SKILLS at Samhain. If you're game. How soon do you want the reviews posted? Right away?

  8. Okay first, here's my link:

    And I would love to read and review a book of yours on my blog.

    I'm kinda torn between something erotic or historical....I just don't know.

    Here's the thing, I can't read a book mid series, and I don't know which book is in a series or not.


    I am not the best at begging or pleading but I did google your book Taming Him and OMG I want that one soooooo badly!!!! First I'm a cover snob and I am obFREAKINGsessed with the cover! And the book is exactly the type of read I'm into right now. So if that was good enough begging then great! If not.....I'll read Perfection in ebook.


  9. Oh and just in case you didn't know, I'm entering both contests. I'm going to post something up on my blog now. Thanks again.

  10. oo oo ME! ME!
