Good Monday Everyone!
Looking forward to hearing about all your great reads from last week. There have been some fabulous releases the last few months. Can't wait to hear about the ones you're recommending.
Thanks to everyone who came by to check out my Ella Grace website. I sincerely appreciate your kind comments. I hope you got the chance to read the MIDNIGHT SECRETS excerpt. Also, last Friday I posted the very first Midnight Tale. Inez Peebles, the oldest resident of Midnight, wrote an interesting and informative blog about her hometown. If you didn't get to read it, here's the link: A Midnight Tale.
As promised, since the Ella Grace site is now up, the focus on this blog will be future Christy Reece books, including the upcoming LCR novella, CHANCES ARE. And to keep that promise, here's a snippet for you. The first paragraph:
He had been following her for days. She was young,
beautiful, and deliciously unaware of anything outside of her field of vision
or interest. Was there anything more enticing or tempting? Without a doubt, she
had no clue that her life was about to make a hairpin turn and dead end
I'll try to share a few lines every couple of weeks. I've so enjoyed getting back to the LCR gang. Both Angela and Jake have surprised and delighted me. I think you're going to love them as a couple. I'll soon be working on the cover and can't wait to see how that turns out. As soon as it's finalized, I'll post it here. I'm still hopeful that I'll get CHANCES ARE out to you by the end of the year.
As you know, I'm self publishing CHANCES ARE, which means it will be released as an eBook. I'm not sure yet if I'll release it as a paperback, too. Much of it depends upon what readers want. So if you wouldn't mind letting me know how you would prefer to read CHANCES ARE, I'd sincerely appreciate it. You can comment here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As mentioned last week, today is the beginning of a huge contest for me. I've never done this before and am quite excited about it. My website has the most hits on Monday because of this blog, however, over the last couple of months recommends have slowed considerably. I'd love to regenerate interest because even though we have only a few recommendations, many viewers come here to get good book suggestions. I want to continue that service. So, to help increase the comments and hopefully the traffic, I'm going to have a 3 month contest. Each person who recommends a book(s) will be entered into the contest. Only one entry each Monday but the more Mondays you recommend a book, the more times your name will be entered. There are 14 Mondays between now and the end of the year. That 14 times you could enter.
The drawing will take place, Monday, January 31 at 12:00 PM (CST)
Here are the prizes:
Grand prize: Kindle Fire HD.
First place prize: A signed copy of the complete Last Chance Rescue series (all 9 books)
Second place prize: $25 gift card to Amazon or Barnes and Noble
So, let's hear it for Recommend Monday! Remember, the contest starts today. And since it's a win-win for everybody, be sure to let others know about the contest. We all get great book recommendations and at the end of the year, three people will win a fabulous prize!
Okay, that's it for me. I'm headed back to Midnight. I hope you have a fabulous week. Can't wait to read your recommendations!
