Anniversary Giveaway: The Winners!

Can you believe that it’s been a full year since my first novel, ‘Till the Last Petal Falls, was published? I still can’t believe it- even though I’ve already even finished the second and have everything set for a summer publication.

1114 people entered my anniversary Goodreads giveaway- that’s about twice as many people who entered my first giveaway more than a year ago! If you had told the me then that more than a thousand people would be requesting something I wrote, I would have laughed you off.

I’d like to take this moment to thank all of my supporters and fans for one heck of a year. It’s been exciting, jumping headfirst into this whole authoring thing- but  I wouldn’t have the strength or the will to keep pushing myself to become a better author, producing better stories for you, if I didn’t have such a wonderful network of encouragement and kindness.

Congratulations to the five winners of the giveaway:

JC Tenney

Candace Banning

Sharon Powell

Caryn Landreth

and

Paige Bryant!

 

Your signed copies of ‘Till the Last Petal Falls will be shipping out to you this week! For those of you who entered and didn’t win, you can still get your copies at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, through the Book Bar or requesting a copy from your local independent bookstore. If you’d like a signed copy, always feel free to contact me personally through my contact form here!

Anniversary Giveaway!

Happy New Year! It’s weird to think that a year ago, I was still eagerly awaiting the publication of my first novel. In honor of this, I’m holding an anniversary giveaway- starting today, and ending on the anniversary of the publication of ‘Till the Last Petal Falls on February 25th, 2014, enter on Goodreads for your chance to win one of five signed copies of my debut novel (just in time for my big announcement regarding the second book of the series!)

Small Business Saturday: A Promotion

November 30th, as a part of their participation in Small Business Saturday, the Bookbar in Denver is offering 20% off of all local author titles- including mine! Why not spread the cheer this year and support an independent business, who is in turn supporting local authors who are often published either independently or through smaller presses?

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and is now having a safe shopping weekend!

Event Notice: BookBar Denver, Book Signing

Hey everyone! If you follow my Facebook I’m sure you’ve noticed the new event popping up. I just wanted to remind all of my readers that this Saturday I will be at the BookBar on Tennyson St in Denver, Colorado signing copies of ‘Till the Last Petal Falls and talking about the book. We’re holding the signing as part of Domestic Violence Awareness Month- as 10% of all author royalties from ‘Till the Last Petal Falls are donated to local battered women’s shelters through donations to SafeHouse Denver. 

Come hang out with me for an hour- I’d love to see you all this weekend! 

Things That Excite Me: Local Bookstores (And Wine!)

logo   As of today, the Bookbar in Denver (off of wonderful Tennyson street) now carries ‘Till the Last Petal Falls as part of its local authors showcase. Considering the fact that this store is quickly becoming my own favorite (it’s a bookstore and a wine lounge, how much classier can you get?) I am beyond ecstatic for the opportunity to have my own work on their shelves. Stay tuned for an author event, tentatively to be scheduled in October for Domestic Violence Awareness Month. In the meantime, why not support a new author, battered women’s shelters in Denver, and an innovative independent bookstore all at once and get your copy from the Bookbar?  I’m sure the staff there would love to see all of your bright, shining faces (they are very friendly, I often just stop in to chat- they have a lot of good recommendations, and don’t mind if you just come in for a glass of wine and bring your own book!). There’s even a Little Free Library outside their doors that’s always worth checking out, as well as the paired Wine and Book of the month!
