Here's the deal. I have two book events last week:
1. a 4.5 star Romantic Times review for Thank You, Mrs. M.... I'd put it up but I think they don't like that when it's not on their website yet.
2. and a print copy of Taken Unaware became available. Also in the still-hanging-in-there news, Summer Devon got a new contract from EC **
I am going to give away a print book on Tuesday and then one on Friday. And the first three people who make a remark here on the blog will get a download of the book that got the nice review. And then I'm going to give away two more books at the end of the month, too.
Got that? I've been entering contests lately and they've gotten pretty complicated. Yet I also have the standard craving shared by all writers: that is have to have other people post about my books and my blogs and my contest and me, me, me,*** so I'll add rule two and the usual bribe.
1. Comment below on this blog and maybe win a book to be given away this week.
2. Comment sometime in August in your blog/face book page/where ever, about my contest or my books**** send me a link and at the end of the month you can maybe win a book AND a $25 gift certificate to Barnes and Noble (or, if you'd rather, Borders) to be given away at the end of the month.
**The contract's for a book that will be called....
wait for it....
we worked on this one....
As my pal Kathy pointed out, all arousal is irrational. (The editor and I kept running titles past each other asking "is that too boiled bunny?" We hope this one isn't.)
*** Actually if you just bought the damn books and didn't mention them or me anywhere, that would be fine, but I've figured out that the making-money-with-writing life doesn't work that way.
**** Comments about my cute dog/kids, my political views, weight or singing skills do not qualify as entries but we don't mind them.
