So, here are the winners of a copy of The Lady’s Secret: Sara Anne, azteclady, and Clavis.
E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me how you’d like your copy. As far as I can tell, I can give gifts on Amazon, All Romance eBooks, and … maybe others, still to be explored. Let me know how you prefer to get your e-copy, and I’ll see how best to get it to you.
Also, I promised an update on Unraveled in the comments section. I have had a lot of e-mails and the like asking me the following questions:
- Q. When is it going to be out?
A. When it is done.
- Q. No, really, when is it going to be out?
A. There is one thing I can fairly well promise you: It won’t be out before Thanksgiving. I am working very, very hard to try to make it land in the “late November” date rather than, say, early December. “Late November” almost certainly means November 30th. If it doesn’t, I’ll let you know. At this point, the book requires essentially nothing more than the application of work to book. (This is not always true. There are points in the writing of the book when it requires the pulling of hair and the gnashing of teeth. I am past that point.) I am not sure how much work will be needed. Here is the other thing I will promise you: If my choice is between releasing it late and releasing it unready, I will release it late. Hopefully I will do neither.
- Q. So does this mean the book sucks?
A. No. I actually love it. I love it a lot. That is why I’m working hard on it, because I don’t want to mess it up.
- Q. Why can’t I preorder it?
A. Because it’s self-published, and the major accounts do not make it possible to preorder a book. It will be available, promise.
- Q. Will it be available in print?
A. Yes. I’m arguing with myself over various aspects of print pricing.
- Q. Is there an excerpt?
A. Why, yes. Yes there is. I’ve delayed putting it up because I’m still fussing with bits and pieces. I will be fussing with bits and pieces up until the day that I post this sucker, so expect changes. But from this point onward, changes will be largely cosmetic. And so I’ve forced myself to put up the first chapter. It’s here.
