So, I’m supposed to be finishing up “Lover’s Knot”, a freebie Dory novella, only Penguin needs the fourth Dory novel in earlier than expected, and you know, I have to eat. So, in the meantime, I thought I’d do a couple of things to keep you guys busy. First, about the next Dory book, tentatively entitled Shadow’s Bane. That title hasn’t been approved yet, by the way, so may end up changing. Call it a working title for now. Anyway, you can find the first few chapters on the Books page, under the not-a-cover I’ve got there as a placeholder until the real one is finished. Enjoy!
Secondly, since I have a lot of “Lover’s Knot” already written, I thought I’d post a chapter a week of the finished stuff (unedited) for anybody who wants it now. The first post will go up late today. It’ll be on the Freebies page as usual. For those of you who’d prefer to wait and read the whole, edited, spit and polished version, just avoid the weekly posts. I’ll make a note on the blog and FB etc. when the finished novella is up on Amazon and Smashwords, and you can download the whole thing then. Okay? Okay. I gotta go write; you guys have a nice week. 🙂
Good morning! Just wanted to let you know the results of the last ARC drawing. Congrats to Elizabeth Wyatt, Hildegard Hettinger and Cheyla Hernandez Gonzalez! Ladies, please send me your addresses and I will get your prizes right out to you. And thank you to everyone who participated in the events all this month. I had a great time, and hope you did, too!
Good morning everyone! So, remember that unexpected box of ARCs I was sent? I gave three away to you guys and sent offers to reviewers and bloggers for the rest. Only . . . most of them didn’t want one. 🙁 Which is bad for me, but great for you, because it means I have extra ARCs! Three, to be exact, which also happens to be the number of Cassie tote bags I have left. So I’m matching ’em up and doing one last ARC giveaway! Just send your name with Final ARC in the title to KarenChance@hotmail.com. Contest closes March 30 at midnight EST, and I’ll announce the winners the next day. Good luck! 😀
Congrats to Clare Kidwell, Duca Jolic and Arial Te Momo! You all get ARCs! Just send me your addresses and I’ll get them right out to you. For everyone else (like all two hundred of you — damn, there were a lot of entries this time! I think you broke my email) author’s copies should be available before the pub date, and I’ll be running another contest as soon as I have them. Thanks, everyone! And have a great night!
Okay, so I got a surprise box of ARCs from my editor today. I’ve been after them so much over the Read for Pixels thing, and the ARCs I’d promised people for the event, that I think they slipped up and sent me two boxes (or maybe it’s a bribe to shut me up!) Anyway, I’m doing another giveaway (to enter, send your name and “ARC” to KarenChance@hotmail.com). Only there’s a catch this time: if you enter this drawing, you have to be willing to do a non-spoilery review of the book. It doesn’t matter where (Amazon, B&N, etc.) but you have to promise to do one! It should, of course, be an honest review of what you think of the book. Anyway, I have three available! I will do the drawing tonight at midnight EST, so get those names in, and good luck!
