Whew! Well, that title will make this blog post sound deceptively exciting 🙂
First off, though, I do have–GASP–a real, live print ARC (uncorrected advance reading copy) of PIRATE’S ALLEY to give away today! Very, very few of these were printed so if ever by some fluke become famous it might become valuable. Don’t hold your breath on that one, though. As with all ARCs, it has a plain white cover and not all the typos and last-second text changes are reflected. If you win, I’d love for you to review it on AZ and other spots when the book is published on April 21–even if you hate it. But I hope you won’t 🙂
To enter, just leave a comment with your favorite Sentinels sidekick. In other words, someone other than DJ. :-). Mine is still the pirate, but the merman is growing on me faster than a speeding dolphin!
Let’s see, what else.
Oh! A huge THANK YOU to Night Owl Reviews and reviewer Bookshifter for making LOVELY, DARK, AND DEEP a top pick in January! You can read her review here.
I’m setting up a few events for the year, so if you’re going to be anywhere in the vicinity I hope you’ll stop by and say hello.
February 20, 6:30 p.m. I’ll be attending a “Love in the Library” event at the Homewood Public Library in the Birmingham area with a lot of my Southern Magic RWA chapter-mates. The keynote speaker at the FREE event is author Kerrelyn Sparks, so it should be lots of fun. And I think there’s food.
April TBA. There might be a launch event afoot in New Orleans for the launch of PIRATE’S ALLEY. Time, date, and place to be announced but maybe around April 24. Stay tuned.
AUGUST 12-16, Atlanta Sheraton. I’ll be a featured author at AUTHORS AFTER DARK this year, and hosting a table at the Bump in the Night Ball as well as doing some panels (those are TBA, as plans are still in the making). Master of Ceremonies will be Sherrilyn Kenyon, and you can take a peek at the authors who’ll be there at this link. This is SUCH a fun convention, and there’s lots of time for readers and authors to just hang out and have coffee or chat. More details as we get closer.
Between now and Feb. 7, STORM FORCE is on sale for Kindle for $1.99. If you haven’t read how Nik and Robin of ALLEGIANCE fame got their start, this is the book. You can find it here.
Unless something untoward happens, if you’re in the UK, the Amazon UK store on Feb. 6 will have the first three Penton books–REDEMPTION, ABSOLUTION, AND OMEGA–as the Kindle Daily Deal for 99p each. Yay!
