New Contest!

Books are delightful society. If you go into a room and find it full of books - even without taking them from the shelves they seem to speak to you, to bid you welcome. ~William Ewart Gladstone

I love reading... and I know you all do, too.

Since I'm guessing most of you have already bought and read my work, it seems silly to give away my own books exclusively. So, here's what I'm going to do... I'm having a contest with CHOICES! Yep, you decide between either one of my books in eFormat OR one other option I'll give you. And, I'm going to do this every month.

:-)

So from now until February 14th, every comment will enter you into a chance to win your choice of any of my releases - or - a eBook copy of "Best of Intentions" by Michelle Cary.

Seth McFadden would love to ditch his life as a rock star and return to his hometown and girl he left behind. When a wicked winter storm fulfills his desire, Seth learns the true meaning of be careful what you wish for. Injured and blind, Seth loses his psychic powers. Finding out Tess, his high school love, is his nurse is even more of a shock as he learns to adjust to his new life.

Tess Parker has never been psychic, save for her connection to Seth. Now after his return, she’s having strange nightmares and visions about the hospital’s ‘Angel of Death’ killer. Seth broke her heart once and she’s fearful he’ll do it again, yet she can’t walk away knowing he’s the only one who can explain what’s happening to her. When the killer learns that Tess knows the truth, the price for justice may very well be her life.

Best post EVER on how to be a successful writer is here.

=========================

Folks... I hope you enjoyed the little interview I did yesterday -- I've had so much fun with these, and as the weeks progress, you'll see even stranger questions come through. Some of these authors have cracked me up to no end and I'm absolutely sold on them and their voices -- so I imagine you'll see some of THEIR books in my upcoming giveaways.

I got an unbelieveable response to my call out for participants as well -- I'm already scheduling into July -- so am pleased.

===========================

Judy and I have challenged each other on writing -- she has to do 250 words (about one page) every day. I have to do 1000 (about four pages). For me, even 1000 words a day won't help me reach my JaNoWriMo goal, but it'll get me about halfway. Not too shabby. Speaking of which, I need to go write. TTFN!

============================




You Are Traditional and Dependable



You view the world with childlike wonder. You are very inquisitive. You can help but spy, investigate, and ask questions.

You seek harmony and balance in your life. You prefer to work with a partner.

You're fun loving and playful. You never take life too seriously.

You seek security in your life. Feeling safe is important to you.



Except for the "feeling safe" part -- this is pretty much wrong. But I do love me an Oreo.

I can't believe we're nearly to the end of the month! What happened to it??

Have a good writing day!

I enjoyed your interview the other day and look forward to more.

You Are Skeptical and Smart

You tend conform with the rest of society, even if you aren't trying to. No one would accuse you of being a freak!

You are a very creative and innovative person. You dream big and rarely do something the same way twice.

You're easy going and easy to be around. You aren't picky or high maintenance.

You seek solutions in your life. You are on a constant quest to improve yourself.


Hmm, not a bad estimate.

Have a good Thursday.

As I was taking my shower this morning, I thought of another Tightwad tip. Your shampoo is very thick, because you use more that way, and you don't need to. I cut my shampoo by adding 1/3 water to it. It goes farther, and works just as well.

Cool on the new contest. And I have no idea where January went. OR my JaNoWriMo :(

Yeah, NO. I like routine, I'm not high maintenance *G* but I prefer quiet and hate risks. *G*

Have a great day and good luck with the writing.
