LAST CHANCE Excerpt is up and it's Friday! So Let's Have Some Fun!

Hey All--

Hope you enjoyed the excerpt of LAST CHANCE. Now you have a peek at the entire trilogy and it's only 38 days until NO CHANCE releases! Yay!

An e-newsletter will go out on February 23, so be sure to sign up on the mailing list if you haven't already. I'll have giveaways all day long on release day. Tell everyone you know to drop by. I'm really hoping sales will go through the roof that first week!

I'll be doing several guest blogs and interviews before and after February 23. The day of each blog or interview, I'll announce the location and give you the link, but if you'd like to go ahead and mark your calendar, here's where I'll be:

February 15 - Romance University
February 18 - Barnes and Noble Mystery Club Online Discussion Board
February 19 - RomCon
February 23 - NO CHANCE release (blogging and contests all day here)
February 24 - Riding with the Top Down
February 25 - Loves Romance and More
February 26 - Book Binge

Whew! Gonna have some fun!

Okay, today, I have two prizes for two random commenters.

One commenter will win a $25 Barnes and Noble

One commenter will win an autographed copy of my entire trilogy.

And all you have to do is tell me what you're reading today. I'll announce the winners at 8:00 pm CST, so be sure to check back to see if you won!

To get us started, I'll tell you what I'm reading: The synopsis for my new book. Yep, it's a working day for me, but it's still fun. What about you?

Hi Christy. Today my goal is to finish No Mercy by Lori Armstrong. Started it yesterday and it is really pretty good. I usually don't like stories in the first person, but this one grabbed me from the beginning and won't let go! I'm trying to compile a list of books that I read for this year. Goal is wish me luck! (ps..I have yours in my pile!) thanx...Diana

Hey Aly, Dean Koontz is an author I so need to read. So many people love him. He's been on my TBR list for way too long without me trying him. Need to make reading him a priority in 2010!

Energy??? Hummmm. Yeah i need a little.

Ok, now i guess i have to take someone with me to take the pic. It might ruin those pretty books if i am in it. Just to warn you.

And when RETURN TO ME came out. it had it's own End Cap display at one of the WalMart's I go to!!!
RESCUE ME was in on the main shelf.
Now RUN TO ME was a hard one to find I had to order it online.

I'm reading Renegade by Catherine Mann and finishing up Taste of Fear by Shannon McKenna. Just starting (again) Run to Me. Got to get ready for next month!
Your new trilogy with RESCUE us from the CR drought we've been in lately as you books RETURN to the stores. I'm sure we'll all RUN to get our own copy. (Weak I know ,but it may be the LAST CHANCE to use the first trilogy titles in our not so funny jokes.)
Hope everyone's weekend is fabulous.

Mary G, I am really liking To Hot To Hold it is just taking me awhile to get through, it is not the book, I just have been soooo busy! Looking forward to the end of the month for the new one to come out. Trying to figure out what to read next. Everyone gave such good suggestions. I read quite a few from there. I am on pins and needles for Nina Bruhns book to come out in April(That is after I read Last Chance:)).

I can't BELIEVE I am asking this but, earlier when Christy was having the week long contest. I could have swore someone mentioned another author that does seal or opt type books that were really good. It wasn't the author that wrote about the character Dallas(my memory has gone out the window these last 2 weeks) but someone esle. Help anyone?
