Magpie’s Fall Giveaway

Posted in blog | Tagged , , , | 24 Comments
It’s my birthday next week, but I figured I’d celebrate by doing a giveaway of my own here. Basically, two winners – your choice of a signed copy of either Magpie’s Song or Magpie’s Fall, whichever you like. Open worldwide. (Prefer an ebook? I can do that too – just let me know!) Contest will end next Wednesday (my bday, yo) and I’ll do the drawing on Thursday. Prizes mailed out shortly after that. Look how pretty!! –>    So how do you enter? Easy way is in the comments below – I had a pretty crazy summer – so tell me something good that happened and share the love.  The rest of the options – the tweets and the FB page stuff are just extras to earn you extra chances. Also the newsletter – I don’t send out a lot of stuff on it, but it’s worth an extra… Read more

New Year…Win a Thing

Posted in blog | Tagged , , , , , , , , , | 12 Comments
I don’t make resolutions for New Years. I’ve never really had much success with that sort of thing – coming up with an arbitrary day to start something – a new process or a dietary regimen or whathaveyou. I mean, the concept is fine – whatever it is you want to do, you have to start somewhere, so the first day of the new year is as good a time to start as any, I suppose. And I’m looking back over the past year with a curious eye – what I did manage to do, what I could have done better – what I want to do this upcoming year. I’m terrible at managing time – no matter how many planners I try to work with, I’m good for a week or so and then it’s like I decide they’re merely guidelines anyway. Not that I won’t continue to try… Read more

Carniepunk…and Contest!

Posted in blog | Tagged , , , , | 23 Comments
It’s here! Carniepunk is officially out today – so here’s your chance to finally fine out whats going on with Melanie and how she got her magic violin! 🙂 (And read a ton of other fantastic stories by some of the best UF authors in the business, of course.) It’s been a long ride getting this book out to the readers – several years in the making, in fact – and I’m so grateful that it’s finally here and happening. That being said, I’ve got a copy in my hands to give away to some lucky duck – so if you’d like a chance to win, leave a comment down below and tell me what’s your favorite carnival/theme park ride.  (I’m partial to the Scrambler, incidentally.) Open until Wednesday at midnight, EDT. International entries are fine. 🙂 Normally, the random winner would be chosen via hedgehog, but seeing as my… Read more

Writing Prompt Wednesday

Posted in blog | Tagged , , , , | 5 Comments
Looking for something fun to do today to shake off some of the negativity of the last few posts, so I’m going to do a flash-fiction writing prompt. I don’t normally do them, but they can be fun, and hey, prizes. Or *a* prize, I guess. I’ll mail a random winner a cover flat of A Trace of Moonlight (or any other cover flat/swag thing user wants). So here’s the picture: Post 500 words or less in the comments below. You’ve got until some random time on Friday or Saturday to get it done and I’ll draw on Sunday. 🙂 Incidentally, the title of the picture is called “Waiting” by Donato Giancola. (Check out the gallery for a ton of additional artwork – lots of familiar book covers in there.) What is she waiting for? Death? A lover? Alien Bears? Only YOU can say.… Read more

Happy Release Day…to Me! :)

Posted in blog | Tagged , , , , , , , | 2 Comments
Okay – I’m all over the place today – guest posts and giveaways and all that fun stuff. I’ll be updating the links in this post as things come up, but I wanted to give a massive shout out to all my fabulous friends and family (and fans!) who have been tweeting and Facebooking and everything else today. You guys are how books get sold and the reason I write and I can’t thank you all enough. (And major props go to Aimo for the awesomesauce gif up there. A complete surprise and so brilliant. I just can’t stop laughing at it.) Also – I have this lovely piece of art from Jakface – Hipster Talivar doing the Hustle. Because that’s what he does. Sometimes. (And you can read that particular scene over at Wicked Little Pixie today!) Okay, links and places…. 1) I’ve got a release day part over… Read more
