Pritkin POV Selected

Just received an email from the winner of the Pritkin certificate goody bag. She has chosen a Pritkin POV instead of a deleted scene, specifically the café conversation between Pritkin and Cassie near the end of Tempt the Stars. She will get a chance to read it first, and then it will be posted to the freebies section of the web page. I will post an announcement when it’s available, but I thought you’d like to know what she selected. 🙂


For all of those who won an arc, good news! I just received word that they should be available by tomorrow. There was a hold up because of the cover design change, but Penguin has them now and is going to be mailing them out to me Wednesday (or as soon as the blizzard allows.) And, as soon as I receive them, I will mail them to you.

For those who won goodie bundles, please drop me a line ( and let me know the name you’d like me to use on the inscriptions. Thank you!

ARC Winners!

So congrats to Wendy Watkinson and Sarah Hoffman, the winners of the ARC Contest! Ladies, at your convenience please email me your addresses for the books. Hope you enjoy!

Read for Pixels Event Info

Hey guys,

I just received the info on the Read for Pixels event, so I’m passing it along.

The Swag Bags: The swag bags will be up on the Read for Pixels fundraising page on March 11, a few hours ahead of the Google Hangout. Basically, the Read for Pixels people put a price on each bag, and the first person to ante up gets it. The page still has the old info on it, but if you click through you can see how it works. If you haven’t seen my swag bags, just scroll down or head on over to my blog where they’re already posted.

2. The Event itself: March 11 at 8:30 Eastern Standard Time, on YouTube. Log on to your Google or YouTube account to ask questions, answer trivia, or just say hi!

3. The Trivia Contest: There will be fourteen trivia questions during the event, for prizes I’ve been posting to Facebook and my blog. I’ll ask a question, and whoever gives the first right answer in the chat window gets that prize.

Looking forward to chatting with you there!

Sneak Peek #10

This is a sterling silver and Swarovski crystal charm bracelet themed to Dory/Dorina. Like with Billy Joe’s, it follows the path of her life so far. And, also like Billy’s, it will be a prize in the Read for Pixels trivia contest.

Sneak Peek #9

Final version of the cover (we swear!)

Here’s the final, final, we-swear-it’s-final version of Ride the Storm’s cover, with that great Charlaine Harris quote attached! Mmm, love that quote! 😀 Anyway, if you plan on sharing/using the cover for anything, this is the one Penguin would like you to go with. And if it gets changed again, I vote we all just ignore it and use this one anyway. I think it turned out really cute!

Bigger version for anyone who needs one:

Sneak Peek #8

Sneak peek #8 is the one, the only, the majestic: Baby Stinky! To win his awesomeness, you will need to answer a trivia question about Midnight’s Daughter, the first book in which he appears.

Sneak Peek #7

Here’s another small, but adorable prize! A baby vamp keychain that comes with a tiny Romanian woven purse (the Dory keychains in the previous post come with these tiny bags, too.) They were origionally hung on a string around the neck by Romanian farmers and used to carry small items (like a purse or a wristlet would be today). To win this one, you’ll need to answer a question about something our characters regularly carry around with them.

Sneak Peek #6

Dory keychains! I thought it would be fun to see some of the smaller prizes up for grabs at the Read for Pixels event. These are brass keychains with Fury’s Kiss on the front and a quote from the book inside. There’s two, and they’re going to people who really know Dory and Louis-Cesare’s relationship.
