August 5th, 2014Darling Beast Twitter ARC Contest!
The Advance Reading Copies (ARCs) of my October book Darling Beast have arrived! Usually these go only to select reviewers, but I have a few to give away to readers like you. Right now I’m holding a contest on Twitter to give away one ARC of Darling Beast. To enter for a chance to win, just tweet your favorite Maiden Lane hero or heroine (or both!) along with the hashtag #WinDarlingBeast. Don’t forget the hashtag! That’s how we’ll be able to pick the winner.

July 15th, 2014Kindle Preorders
I just turned in the galleys for Darling Beast which means we’re on track for release on October 14th. If you’d like to get an alert notice in your inbox on the day of the book’s release, sign up for my The Book is Out! newsblast.
Now for some slightly less fun news: my publisher is Hachette and at the moment Hachette and Amazon are squabbling. Amazon has decided to take down the pre-order links on all Hachette books for Kindle. I’m holding out hope that by the time Darling Beast is released all this will be resolved, but for the moment you can’t pre-order the book for Kindle. You can preorder Darling Beast in all other ebook formats and you can preorder it in paperback on Amazon and every other book retailer. You can also buy all my other books on Kindle—it’s just the preorder books that are affected. I’m sincerely sorry for this situation. I’ll be sure to post to Facebook, Twitter, my website, and in my newsletter to let you know when things are back to normal.
January 8th, 2014Name That Baby!
Brrr! It’s very, very cold here in central Illinois right now. To brighten the winter blues I’m holding a fun contest on my Facebook page. As you know, in the Maiden Lane Christmas Special Lady Margaret St. John and her husband, Godric St. John, were expecting a Blessed Event. Now I’m delighted to announce that Megs has been delivered of a healthy baby girl. Both mother and child are doing well, but we have one problem: the baby has no name! I’m holding a contest until February 14th: help me (and Megs and Godric) name their daughter. The winner will receive a garnet heart necklace–the birthstone of January. Enter as many times as you wish and good luck!
