ETA: Updated to announce the winners! As usual they were chosen at random, but say congrats to...
Faith Holt for winning Prize 1, an Arc of One Grave at a Time!
and Freda Burkett for winning Prize 2, pick of a book from my backlist!
Thanks so much to everyone who entered. I read all your comments and it made my day :).
Today is my blog day at SU, and I have an apology to make. I am so behind the gun on my current deadline that I don't have time to write an insightful, interesting, funny, or even marginally coherent post.
But wait, don't click away! My lack of time/wit/intelligence may as well be put to good use. In lieu of a worthwhile post, I give you contest prizes instead. Free stuff is probably better than listening to me blather on anyway.
Prize 1: An Arc of my upcoming novel, One Grave at a Time. If you're not familiar with this book, here's a description from the back of it:
How do you send a killer to the grave when he’s already dead?
Having narrowly averted an (under)world war, Cat Crawfield wants nothing more than a little downtime with her vampire husband, Bones. Unfortunately, her gift from New Orleans’ voodoo queen just keeps on giving–leading to a personal favor that sends them into battle once again, this time against a villainous spirit.
Centuries ago, Heinrich Kramer was a witch hunter. Now, every All Hallows Eve, he takes physical form to torture innocent women before burning them alive. This year, however, a determined Cat and Bones must risk all to send him back to the other side of eternity–forever. But one wrong step and they’ll be digging their own graves.
And here is my shiny new book trailer to further highlight the plot. Click the Play button to view:
But wait, there's more! Prize 2 is a free book from any of my backlist, including Halfway to the Grave, One Foot in the Grave, At Grave's End, Destined for an Early Grave, First Drop of Crimson, Eternal Kiss of Darkness, and This Side of the Grave. You pick which one you want. If you're brand new to my books, I'd recommend starting with Halfway to the Grave (first in the Night Huntress series) or First Drop of Crimson (first in the Night Huntress World spin-offs). This giveaway is open to everyone no matter where in the world you live.
Leave a comment telling me which prize you're interested in: Prize 1 (Arc of One Grave at a Time) or Prize 2 (pick of one book out of my backlist). Be sure to include your name and email address so I can contact you if you win. No, you can't win both prizes - only one winner per prize category. Contest opens now and closes at 6am EST tomorrow, August 5th. I'll update this post with the winners tomorrow, as well as contact the winners by email.
