Ha! I bet you thought this was a post to promote the anthology I just published with Tessa Dare, Leigh LaValle, and Carey Baldwin, didn’t you?
And it should be, because I’ve been running around the last few days like a chicken with my head cut off trying to get things done, and I just realized I haven’t posted about the anthology’s release yet. But this is not a post about Three Weddings and a Murder, although it is a post about author Carey Baldwin.
This is a post about the fourth wedding. This next week, Carey Baldwin–my dear friend and fellow author–is getting married! I couldn’t be happier for her, or for her husband. (I also couldn’t be happier that she’s getting married in Hawaii, because I am so looking forward to the sun!) So it’s time for a virtual bridal shower–but this one is going to have very real party favors.
I’m going to be giving away A LOT of books (both paper and digital) to people who comment on this blog post, who tweet Carey, and who comment on her Facebook page.
Specifically, you can be entered to win in one of three ways
1. Comment on this blog post, with what you would bring to Carey’s virtual wedding shower.
2. Tweet Carey (@CareyBaldwin) using the hashtag #marrycarey wishing her congratulations on her upcoming marriage.
3. Comment on Carey’s facebook page here: http://www.facebook.com/CareyBaldwinAuthor.
I’m going to be giving away at least 100 paper books (many of them are books that I have written, but I also have books from Jeannie Lin, Delilah Marvelle, Laurie London, Tiffany Clare, Tessa Dare).
I’ll also be giving away 24 digital books: 10 copies of Three Weddings and a Murder, 5 copies of Carey’s debut First Do No Evil (this will have to wait until near the end of June for delivery), 2 copies of Sarah Mayberry’s marvelous Her Best Worst Mistake, and 2 copies of Darcy Burke’s debut, Her Wicked Ways.
So it’s time to wish Carey well.
Other details: the contest is open from now until the end of the day on June 30th. Winners will be picked at random from all entries, and contacted sometime in the following week. You can enter once per method listed above.
And I’m going to start by offering a toast (with virtual champagne and/or nonalcoholic apple cider, your choice):
To Carey: I tried to say something more elaborate, but totally failed. You’re marrying one of the only men in this world who’s amazing enough to deserve you. Excellent work.
