The 30 Books in 30 Days AAD Giveaway-Weekly Winners


We’re only about a month away from Authors After Dark in Atlanta (August 12-16)–there’s still time to sign up through July 10. In between deadlines, I’m collecting an odd assortment of things for gift bags to people sitting at my table at the Bump in the Night Ball (waves at Liz!), which will have a New Orleans/Louisiana theme in honor of both the Sentinels series and the upcoming Wildlife Wardens series.

In the meantime, it seems like a good time to do a buildup by giving away some books. You can always substitute one of my books, or you can leave it up to the fates and let me surprise you. I’m opening this internationally but expect it to come via slow boat because of the cost since an average book runs about $20 US to ship by fast boat 🙂 and I’m a poor, struggling author trying to eke out a living by working two full-time jobs.

There will always be a question to answer. In honor of Independence Day, what’s your favorite movie or book about aliens? Mine is…yep…’INDEPENDENCE DAY’ starring Will Smith and a cast of dozens. Great special effects for the time. NOTE: I will announce winners on Sundays.

And an update on the DARK SECRETS paranormal anthology that will come out on September 29, I have decided to set my novella in the Sentinels of New Orleans world. It will be set in NOLA (of course) and both of the Faerie Princes, Christof and Florian, will be in it, as well as a newcomer, the Prince of Autumn, Faulkner.

If you’ve read PIRATE’S ALLEY, you know the faeries are kind of….eccentric. Yeah, that’s a nice word for it.

WEEKLY WINNERS. Email me if you see your name here: I’ll be catching up on mailings this week now that I’m out of my writing cave for a couple of days.

TIMITRA won Shadowshaper by Daniel Jose Older. 

BARBED 1951 won a mystery book from my TBR stash. Tell me your favorite genre and I’ll try my best to get something you’ll like :-).

Now, for a 30-books-in-30-days prize, what’s your favorite alien movie (or book–we’ll extend it to books)?
