Hi! I hope you all had a happy happy holiday!
The Playwright and I had a lovely white Christmas that involved my mom’s crab soup, cinnamon cookies, learning to make a macrame tree, watching Rudolph and White Christmas, looking at lots of old photos, getting snowbound at my mom’s for an extra day, and lunch with one of my best friends temporarily on the East Coast from San Diego. Present highlights include a necklace that says “balance” (my word for 2013), an owl-shaped candle that perfectly matches my office, a detailed family history that includes letters from my great-grandfather during WWI and from my grandfather and his brother during WWII, and an awesome stack of books.
Now I’m turning my attention toward the new year, and that includes the paperback release of BORN WICKED next Thursday (January 3). I’m hoping that the lower paperback price ($9.99) and the gorgeous, witchy new cover will help it reach new readers.
And to that effect, I’m offering some prizes!
I’m giving away a Nook Simple Touch e-reader. This is the e-reader I have, and I love it. And once I choose a winner, and that person sets up her account, I’ll gift her with ebooks of any 5 of my favorite reads of 2012!
(You can check out my reading list here. Any book with a heart next to it is one of my favorite reads of 2012 and is eligible. So are the following books, which I read in ARC form in 2011 and loved: VENOM by Fiona Paul, CINDER by Marissa Meyer, UNDER THE NEVER SKY by Veronica Rossi, FOR DARKNESS SHOWS THE STARS by Diana Peterfreund, ARTICLE 5 by Kristen Simmons, and STEALING PARKER by Miranda Kenneally.)
How do you enter? Anything that helps me spread the word about BORN WICKED, really. You can tweet about this contest; change your avatar to the BW paperback cover for the week; review BW anywhere (your blog, Amazon, B&N, Goodreads, Tumblr, your favorite bookstore, etc – 2 points per place you share your review); or even (if you’re feeling exceptionally generous) pre-order or buy a copy.
If you have any questions, let me know in the comments! Contest is open until midnight on January 7, only in the US.
