A very happy New Year to you all! The first working week in January is not always the easiest time, so I’m here to throw around some handfuls of belated festive glitter in the form of freebies and prizes, and also to bewilder you with another of my improbable marketing efforts. 😀
My latest full-length novel, Cold Fusion, releases on the 5th of January. I’ve never tried to launch a book at the very beginning of a Mercury retrograde, so that ought to be interesting. (Let the communications-failure circus begin!) Despite all the usual qualms, I’m tremendously excited about this book. I’m already getting positive feedback from advance reviewers, which is great, and Samhain Publishing have outdone themselves with the print editions. They’re satiny-smooth and beautifully designed, and I’d like to offer three of them – signed and dedicated, of course – as prizes. Yes, the competition will be global. Postage costs abroad will be probably be higher than the list price of the print book, but it’s still worthwhile to me to get signed copies to people who’d really cherish them.
Now, because these books are particularly nice, I’m not going to do my usual, “Leave a comment, any comment!” Yep, I’m gonna make you work for it. Here’s the deal. Can you think of any character from my books you’d like to meet? And if you could, what would you ask him? (Or her! There’s a few ladies in there, few and far between!) To be in with a chance of winning your signed, dedicated copy of Cold Fusion, leave your answer in a comment here or at my Facebook page.
I’ll pick three winners at random, so it’s not a contest as such. But (always supposing I get more than three answers ;-D) I’ll arrange for the guys from my books to come along to my blog and answer everyone’s questions in turn, maybe one a week, starting with the prizewinners’. Everyone will get to talk to their favourite person from the FoxWorld.
Does that sound like fun? I think it does, but I suck at this, so what do I know? I would really love to hear from you, and I’d be intrigued to hear what you’d like to ask. As a fourth and fifth-place prize, I’ll offer a choice of any ebook – including Cold Fusion –from my backlist. And, of course, if you prefer not to read print and you win a paperback, you can trade it off for an ebook.
Have a think about it, and very best of luck. I’ll keep the competition open until Friday, 8th of January. Of course I’ll need your land address to send out print volumes, but I will consider that information as private and sacred as if it were my own.
And if all this malarkey is way too complicated for the post-holiday slump, Cold Fusion is available to pre-order right now from Samhain!
Also at Amazon, All Romance eBooks and all your usual outlets.
