Since my book has hit the shelves, I've been overwhelmed by the excitement, support, kindness, and generosity of nearly everyone I know. I've had established authors recommending me for speaking and panel positions, friends and family buying more books than I can count--and reading it and LOVING it! And the list goes on forever. THANK YOU everyone! 

I can't wait to show you the super fantastic book trailer of awesomesauce that's coming up in March. Just you wait and keep your pants on, or it's going to rock them off!

Super Duper Awesome Giveaway Number Three!!

The winner of last weeks Mary Stewart books is J. A. Bennett! Huzzah!

This week, you can't believe the amazing books I have to give away!

In keeping with my theme of books and authors that have influenced me, I'm giving away two books by Shannon Hale. Her novel Book of a Thousand Days has been a huge inspiration to me, especially as a writer. I love everything about this book, the unique setting, the strong voice of the narrator--Dashti, her strength and courage, and Shannon Hale's remarkable ability to take a mucker girl's words and transform them into poetry.

Whenever I feel that my writing needs a step up, I pull out this book to remind myself what great writing really is. It's absolutely beautiful!

So this weeks amazing prize package is:

A beautiful Hardcover copy of Book of a Thousand Days signed by Shannon Hale.
A Hardcover copy of Midnight in Austenland, also signed by Shannon Hale.
AND a copy of my new novel, A Blind Eye, signed by me.

Plus, I'll throw in a bonus bookmark and bumper sticker:

All you have to do is enter the rafflecopter contest. And thanks in advance for entering and helping me spread the word about my book. It is appreciated beyond words!!
