Thanks to all of you who signed up yesterday to receive my new newsletter when I get it up and going! You can still leave a preferred email today (or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you don’t want to put your email in the comment box) to be added to the inaugural newsletter. .. and read on for a chance to warm up with everybody’s favorite pirate Jean Lafitte!
First off, a couple of you mentioned bookplates in your comments. I sort of let my bookplates slide last year, but I do have two different bookplates for the Sentinels books and one bookplate for the Penton Legacy books.
If you’d like a signed bookplate (or more than one), let me know which bookplate(s) you want, and how many, and email me with your mailing address ( suzannej3523 @ gmail). Or, if you’ve won something from me in the last six months or so, just tell me what you want in the comment box because I likely still have your mailing address. No charge. Freebies!
Here’s the Penton bookplate and Sentinels bookplate #1:
And here’s Sentinels bookplate #2.
I’m running low on Penton right now, so first-come, first-served.
Now, what’s this about Jean Lafitte? Why, it’s a Jean Lafitte lap blanket, of course! Leave a comment today telling me your favorite Jean Lafitte scene to win a chance at the blanket, and also let me know if you haven’t already, if you’d like to sign up to be a charter subscriber to the newsletter. (If you signed up yesterday, I have you, so just leave a comment to win the blanket.) This isn’t bed-sized; it’s a lap-size fleece blankie and is the only one I had made. I have “experimental” promo items made that are often one of a kind or few of a kind, and those will be the kinds of things I will be giving away to newsletter subscribers.
So, want Jean Lafitte to keep you warm? I think one of my favorite scenes with Jean came in RIVER ROAD, when he steals the Corvette and DJ finally realizes he’s stolen it–and DJ makes Jean talk to a fuming “Monsieur Chien” on the cell phone! It still makes me chuckle 🙂
