Speaking of lucky winner, our lucky one today is… AMBER!Ā  Congrats and confetti to you!

To all those who didn’t win, please come back and visit me again. I have lots of signed books and giftcards to give away in the future (that is called inducement – or bribery, but as long as it works.)

Book Giveaway! Tangled Web by Crista McHugh

TW-frontAnd because I’m cool like that, it’s time for another giveaway!

Crista McHugh is a friend, a talented award-winning writer, and the best chance I have of eventually knowing a NY Times Bestselling author.

Her newest release Tangled Web is book 1 of a new series and has been described as “Game of Thrones meets 50 Shades of Grey”.Ā  The back cover copy reads thusly:

The deadliest assassin in the empire just got too close to her

Azurha, a former slave turned deadliest assassin in the empire,
has just been offered the ultimate challengeā€”seduce, then murder the new
Emperor. But Titus is not the tyrant his forefathers were, and his radical ideas
might be the glimmer of hope the empire needs.

Titus Sergius Flavus has
yet to master the powerful magic of his ancestorsā€”magic he must wield if heā€™s to protect his peopleā€”but his fatherā€™s death has left him no choice. Rule the
Deizian Empire and attempt to right his ancestorsā€™ wrongs, or watch her fall to
his greedy kin.

More than just Titusā€™ ideas hold Azurha captive. Night
after night, he awakens desires she thought lost, and uncovers the magic of her hidden lineage. As her deadline approaches, Azurha is forced to make an
impossible decisionā€”complete her job and kill the man she loves, or fail and
forfeit both their lives.

Because we’re friends I can force her to sign books at any time, and I have recently done so. This means I have one book to give away to a lucky person. If you are interested, leave a comment telling me Happy New Year, Happy Birthday you old lady, why you think this book will rock, or any other thoughts you have. One person shall be picked at random to receive the book.

Winner will be picked at 5pm (pacific time) on Tuesday, January 15. Good Luck!

Small print ā€“ No purchase necessary, proclaiming your undying love for me wonā€™t up your chances, you must live in the USA (no international or military addresses) and be at least 18 years of age. If you are picked as the winner you will need to give me your snail mail addy for me to send you the book, and Iā€™m not responsible for books lost or mangled by the Post Office.

Two New Book Releases from my Writer Buds

Like every other writer out there, I have critique partners.

Critique partners brainstorm together, discuss how to work past problems in our stories, read each other’s works and push each other to make the writing Ā the best possible it can be. Most authors feel that critique partners are essential to their success and I am no different in that respect. I wouldn’t be even half as good of a writer if I didn’t have my critique partners.

My amazing critique partners – Anna Alexander and Crista McHugh – both have new releases this week. Anna Alexander has her debut story – A Superhero novella entitled Hero RevealedĀ – releasing from Ellora’s Cave. Crista McHugh is an award-winning author whose latest fantasy novelĀ A Soul For Trouble has just become available for sale.

Obviously I’m not a totally unbiased source (!) but I think they are fantastic writers and it is well worth your time to check them out.
