The Witch of Belladonna Bay which hits shelves on May 13th. I'm terrified, and honored, and excited... and a little overwhelmed by everything. I have another novel, Empire Girls, hitting shelves on May 27th and a book tour that begins in June.
There are so many things I didn't expect when I entered the world of traditional publishing.
One of the things I never considered, (which is strange as I am a reader who underlines and highlights EVERYTHING), was that there would be readers who would enjoy certain quotes from my books. I can't quite explain the pure, raw, emotion I feel whenever I visit a book club and the lovely group asks about specific passages from the novels. It makes my soul soar. And sore. How I love words.
People quoting words I've written falls under the category of "Hidden Dreams of my Soul Revealed" And "Heaven, Stay."
So, as part of the gear up to the release of The Witch of Belladonna Bay, I thought about WORDS. Because, of course.
So here's how this goes....
1. Leave a comment here, or wherever this is posted on FB or Twitter, that includes a quote from The Witch of Little Italy (released last year). No worries if you don't have a copy, there are excerpts online, as well as quotes that delicious readers have posted on the internet that you can grab! I guess this is where we could write..."No purchase necessary..."
2. Feel free to share this giveaway, though it is NOT required.
3. On Friday, 4/4/14, 11:59 pm EST I will close the contest and put all the names of those of you who commented with a quote into a random pick generator. Got to love technology, right?
4. On Saturday I will announce the winner, contact you personally, and send you a copy of The Witch of Belladonna Bay! You get to be a "First Read" reader.
That's it! So, here you go. Comment and share away. NOTE: I am not limiting the amount of comments per person, so... yeah, the more you throw your name into the hat, the better your chances with that random generator.
I hope you enjoy this giveaway, and I look forward to posting more as the release date draws ever closer. YIKES!
