Dearest Readers,

After years of dreaming and wishing I am now a published author! I can't believe it to be honest. I am nervous and excited to hear what people think of my work. I have a lot of friends in the blogging business and I ask that you be fair and impartial in your critiques. I will accept all criticism as a way to move forward and learn, so please don't think it will effect our friendships.

So...all that being said! Here's the deal! I'm having a contest!

I was using rafflecopter but it decided to hate me so I gave up. Anyone who entered on he rafflecopter still has entries. :)

You can win: 1 Nook Simple Touch or Kindle Paper-White and 3 copies of Forbidden Attraction. One item per winner...so 4 winners.

  1. I would like to thank you so much for a fantastic giveaway! I don't have a Kindle or Nook, & so have to make do with an app. on my Computer (which is not the same and makes reading e-books very hard). Kindles are expensive but as e-books are so popular, cheaper and readily avaliable as to paperbacks this would be so useful. I do a lot of reviews for authors but as i don't have a kindle if they are abroad sending a paperback/ hardback is not easy. Thank you for this chance. x

    Thanks so much for the chance to win!! Congrats on getting published, hope it all goes well.

  18. First off, I want to say congratulations on getting published and I really enjoyed reading Forbidden Attraction! I actually just finished reading it. Do you ever plan on continuing that story? I am looking forward to buying Mile High Menage on the 20th!

    I also really want to thank you for the opportunity to enter this giveaway! I have been watching your giveaway since it began but I didn't have a computer to enter on, since my computer totally died on me in October, and then a week later my Kindle stopped working. Now I am spending the night at my mom's and finally have a chance to use a computer! I would love the opportunity to win this, although I am sure my chances are slim and I have never won anything before. It would be awesome though because my birthday just passed on the 12th and I had to give up my chances to get gifts from my family because I would rather them spend the money on my daughter for Christmas since I can't afford it for her. Anyway, I am rambling now, but I really would love to have a new Kindle (or Nook!) to read Mile High Menage on when it comes out!!!
