New Contests and A Midwinter Fantasy!

Hey friends! Hope your 2010 is going great! Mine so far has been filled with a lot of writing (of course) adventuring around NYC (always fun) seeing Sherlock Holmes again (swoon) watching David Tennant's run as Dr. Who in order (swoon swoon) and gearing up for a slew of Strangely Beautiful events the whole year!

How 'bout let's talk free stuff:

Contests, Contests, Contests!

I'm running THREE contests in the coming months - not to mention I'll be reincarnating the Haunted London Blog Tour!

Contest #1:
WIN A BOX OF BOOKS in the Valentine's Day Giveaway! Win great Paranormal and Fantasy Romance titles! Go HERE for details and mention your favourite Valentiny sort of thing via the Contact page to enter! (US residents only - sorry, postage costs run high for all this stuff!)

Contest #2:
Starting March 1 and running every MONDAY until just before the release of THE DARKLY LUMINOUS FIGHT FOR PERSEPHONE PARKER I'll be giving away a BOOK A WEEK! Via the Strangely Beautiful Facebook Page!

See HERE for the giveaway schedule, go HERE to join the Strangely Beautiful page - you need to be a fan to be able to "like" or comment, and that's how entries will be taken. Tell friends! Win free books!

Contest #3:
Beginning April 27th, the Website will open for entries for a chance to win Beatrice Tipton's locket featured in The Darkly Luminous Fight for Persephone Parker (an important item as important to Beatrice as Miss Percy's phoenix pendant was to her in Book 1) as well as a $25 dollar Barnes & Noble gift certificate! You're going to have to brush up your Shakespeare again because it will be another Strangely Beautiful pop quiz where you hunt for the Shakespeare references inside the pages!

In book news:

OCTOBER'S ANTHOLOGY has a title! - In October of this year myself, along with lovely Dorchester authors Helen Scott Taylor and L.M. McDonald are a part of a Fantasy Romance anthology where I the Strangely Beautiful series continues!

A Midwinter Fantasy

will include Strangely Beautiful #2.5; "A Christmas Carroll" starring Headmistress Rebecca Thompson and Vicar Michael Carroll (and including the rest of our beloved Guard as well.) I am so excited to share this - and for many fans, this is a long-awaited conclusion that I've hinted at all along, I'm so thrilled for the opportunity to give Rebecca and Michael some justly deserved time!
