New week, new Castle, new Giveaway! The trifecta of goodness!

After too many snow days to count and not enough new television due to fear of competing with the Winter Olympics, I hate to admit just how happy I was to hear that there was a new episode of Castle on this week.  Ah, the murder, the mayhem, the Beckett-Castle banter…it’s good to be back!

For all the juicy recap dish on last night’s episode AND to find out who won the last giveaway, head on over to my USA Today column in the Happy Ever After/Book section and catch up already!

So…is there a new giveaway you ask?  Oh…there’s a new giveaway this week, all right.  BOY, IS THERE!


With the release of Book 2 in my Bachelor’s of Blueberry Cove series, HALF MOON HARBOR, just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to do something BIG to get the buzz started.  So, naturally, I involved the fabulous and ridiculously talented Joyce Taber of The Cotton Thistle–you remember Joyce, she’s the one who designed the awesome lighthouse bookmark charm for Book 1 of the series, PELICAN POINT, which she managed to do while also designing jewelry in conjunction with each of Nora Roberts’ new releases.

Pelican Point Necklace I[1]

Well, let me tell you, she went full out this time with this gorgeous charm necklace celebrating PELICAN POINT.  I loved it so much I commissioned one for myself!   (Okay, so I figured I had to because otherwise it might have raised a few eyebrows when I won my own contest…)

So, here’s the deal:  For this week’s giveaway, one lucky winner will receive: Joyce’s gorgeous, specially designed necklace, along with a signed copy of Book 1, PELICAN POINT…AND…AND!…a signed advance copy of Book 2, HALF MOON HARBOR, which won’t hit the shelves until April 29th!


I’m also thrilled to announce that after the winner is announced next week, Joyce will be setting up a special boutique on her website featuring the bookmark charm and the necklace for PELICAN POINT, so you can purchase one of your very own!  She’ll be designing charm bookmarks for Book 2HALF MOON HARBOR and for Book 3, SANDPIPER ISLAND, along with other unique pieces, exclusive to the Blueberry Cove series.  More information to come!  You can head over to her shop, The Cotton Thistle, rightthisverysecond to see all of her lovely pieces, including those designed for the Nora Roberts‘ books.  (I love what she’s done for Nora’s new Dark Witch and JD Robb releases!)

The winner of the Blueberry Cove Bundle Giveaway will be announced in next week’s Castle recap on the USA Today site. Link will be posted in the blog here, and on my Facebook Page and Twitter stream, so don’t miss out!  It could be you!

But, to be you, you have to enter.  Here’s how:  Drop me an email to with “Bundle me some Blueberry Cove Goodies!” in the subject line.  That’s it.  It’s that easy.  So enter, then hop on over to The Cotton Thistle to browse, and don’t forget to catch up on the Castle recap over at USA Today…and we’ll meet back here next week.  Same bat time, same bat blog station!
