Let the Contests begin...

THIS CONTEST IS ON HIATUS AS OF FEBRUARY 16, 2009. I'M NOT SURE WHEN IT WILL RETURN.

Okay, I have four boxes of books from the RWA Conference in San Francsico to giveaway. Many are authographed by the authors, too. Generic autographs. And I have various bookmarks and other promo materials, but those won't last for all the books. A big thank you to my roomie and Avalon author, Shirley Marks, and her daughter Kim for picking up books for me, too!

So here is how the book giveaway will work:

1) A new contest begins today. The next one will start when I put up a post announcing the winner from the last one. I hope to do this on Sundays, making it a weekly giveaway, but hey, I'm only human, trying to raise three kidlets, three cats and a dog, and write romance novels so I reserve the right to have some leeway with this. The only change to this will be if I have a release out (such as in November) and do a special contest for that. Then, we'll take a break from the book giveaway while that other contest is going on.

2) Your name will be entered each time you post a comment so you can have multiple entries for each weekly contest. Your entries are good for that week's contest only. If you want to keep your name entered each week, you have to keep commenting. This way we both get something from the contest!

3) Books will be sent by the cheapest snail-mail means available so if you're overseas you might not see the book for a while! And if life gets hectic and/or I'm on deadline, I may not mail them right away, either. But you will get your book!

4) The winner gets to choose one item from the following list (more books will be added as I find them!):

Oh, what a fantastic list of books you have there. I am really eyeing those historicals. You can make your rules any why you want them, we don't mind. I always check your blog from time to time, may not alway comment but I check. In the summer I don't have as much time to blog.

Glad you all like the list. There were more books than I realized when I started to type them in.

I didn't even hit all the publisher signings since I had workshops and a forum to attend. Probably a good thing. I don't think my hands could have handled it. They're a bit sore today as it is!
