I’m excited to be blogging for USA Today this fall television season. What am I blogging you ask? Okay, so maybe you didn’t ask, but I’m so thrilled, I’m telling you anyway. I get the quite distinct honor and absolute pleasure of blogging about another fiction writer and his law enforcement muse…yep, it’s ABC’s Castle!
We’re three weeks in and I’m already having the time of my life. (Want to catch up? Go here and read all about it.) I’m having SO much fun, in fact, I’m giving stuff away. Good stuff! This week? It’s a signed, advance copy of my upcoming launch book for my new Bachelors of Blueberry Cove series, PELICAN POINT! I know!
My lovely publisher, Kensington Books, asked me to do a video for the book. It’s funny, I don’t mind my words being in front of tens of thousands of peering eyes, but the idea of ME being on stage? In a word? YIKES!! But I did it…and it’s officially out there. For all the world to see. Yep, I’m totally comfortable with that. Totally. (She says, from her vantage point, hiding in the closet, with a stack of books, from which she might never emerge.)
It’s a whopping 90 seconds long, and it features a bunch of the wonderful lighthouses I photographed during my time in Maine this past year, so focus on that. Eyes off the author, look at the pretty lighthouses… You can check it out here.
Then pop back over and enter this week’s contest! To win a signed copy of Pelican Point simply drop me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with “I don’t need no stinkin’ tote bag. You can’t read a tote bag. Send me a book!” in the subject line. (It’s a long story. Last week…I went totally swag crazy and there were tote bags. And there might be more in the future, but the book is the thing, right?) I hope so! I’ll be drawing a name from the entry pile and announcing the winner in next week’s blog, which goes live Tuesday morning at 6am. That’s right! In addition to winning the cool book, you could see your name in print in USA Today. Your friends will be in awe.
So hurry up and enter already!
