Surrender to Darkness officially releases today! I’m so excited to see this book on the shelf–Murdoch is one of my favorite heroes so far.

I’m blogging over at Silk & Shadows today … and giving away a signed copy to one lucky commenter. If you’d like to win a copy, hop over and log a comment. There’s a new excerpt posted there, too.

p.s. I’m not sure if I mentioned this, but the German version of Surrender has a release date: September 12, 2011. I’ve posted the covers on my Books page.

I’ve been doing a lot of reading this summer, thoroughly enjoying a bevy of wonderful contemporaries, paranormals, and historicals. I thought I’d share my bliss with my readers and give away a book. What book? Well, a fellow romance author, Jennifer Haymore, has recently been diagnosed with breast cancer–a disease which has hit my family hard. To support her and her wonderful writing, I’m giving away a copy of Jennifer’s recent historical release, A Touch of Scandal.

To win, all you need to do is comment on my blog between August 1 and August 31st, 2010. I’ll pick one winner from the commenters using and announce the winner on September 1st.

Good luck!

I got a box of Bound by Darkness ARCs on Friday. Lovely and pink. It’s so exciting to see them–laid out, printed and looking almost like a real book.

I’d love to give away one ARC and a signed cover flat to one of my website visitors. Comment on this blog post by next Wednesday, and you could win. I’ll draw one random entry on Thursday, Mar 4th.
