“This Wicked Gift”: Now officially out!

First things first: The four winners of the copy of Tessa Dare’s A Lady of Persuasion are: Kimmy L, Tris, Llehn, and Angela T. Send me an e-mail at courtney@courtneymilan.com and I will get your books out right away.

Second things second: I’ve announced the winners of my website contest for the month of September. Head over there to see if you won! While you’re at it, you can enter October’s contest–and get a chance to win my anthology, a tin of Jacques Torres hot chocolate, and a recording of Richard Armitage reading Georgette Heyer. It doesn’t get much better than that.

Elizabeth Essex asks an interesting question, though, in the comments to the post:

And cheers to Courtney for being such an awesome promoter of ‘books she did not write herself.” When (hint, hint) is it your turn?

Well. Since you asked…  Far be it from me to remind you all, but while I may be an awesome promoter of Books not Written by Courtney, I am a prodigious promoter of Books Written by Courtney. Every day which is not “Buy a Book Not Written by Courtney” Day is officially “Buy a Book Written by Courtney Day.”  If you don’t believe me, just look here. See? It says so on the Internet. It must be true!

Ahem. In any event, as most of you know, “Buy a Book Written by Courtney Day” has been woefully undercelebrated, for the simple reason that up until now, Courtney has not had any books available for purchase.  This has been a travesty.  Sadly, the travesty will continue, because Courtney still has no books available for purchase.  She does, however, have a novella in an anthology. (Astute readers, please note that “Buy a Book Written by Courtney Day” is a holiday much given to splitting of definitional hairs.)

In any event, my anthology is officially out.  In anticipation of this, my publisher gave me, oh, a box of like fifty copies of the anthology.  Somehow, all but two copies are already magically spoken for.  I thus demonstrate that Courtney does not understand the concept of “Buy a Book Written by Courtney Day,” as I apparently seem to have misunderstood this as “Give away 50 Books Written by Courtney Day.” I am not quite sure what I did with all those books. I built a fort, yes. But I took it apart, and so I should have more than two left!

Notwithstanding this idiocy, I will forge ahead.

Want my anthology?  I’m giving away my last two copies.  Leave a comment, and I will choose two winners tomorrow.

But the festivities are not over for the day.  No–swing back around noon, because Mr. Milan will be posting his first ever review of a piece of romance writing.  Yes, Mr. Milan is my husband. Yes, he is reviewing my novella.  And yes, he will be 100% totally completely and utterly unbiased.  He is good like that.  Promise.

While you’re at it, swing by the Vauxhall Vixens–they’re throwing me a release party! Plus, I am guest-blogging over at The Romance Writer’s Revenge, mixing piracy and revenge.
