The League of Reluctant Wieners!

As I explained over at my own blog, I couldn't use the Contest Can to choose today's weiner, as I have NO IDEA WHERE IT IS. I know it's in a box in my office . . . and that's all.

So I had to use a randomizer to choose today's Lovely Wiener of my Tracking the Tempest Prize:

And the wiener is . . . . DAWN! Congratulations, Dawn! And thanks to everyone for the marvelous photos and comments. Both Jane and I appreciate them very much.

Dawn, you can email at iheartselkies(at)gmail(dot)com. I do warn you: I won't be sending out the prize right away, just because it's probably in the same box as the Contest Can. But once I've found it, I'll send it off right away, I promise!

Thanks again for everyone who played . . . I hope you enjoy more Jane!

Happy Official Release Day, Tracking the Tempest!

It's that time of year again, when selkie-halflings come out to play! Today's the official release day of Jane True, Book 2: Tracking the Tempest!

And because I love the League and everybody in it, I'm running you your own, special contest! Here's a picture of the prize pack:

Just like on the contest at my own website (which you can enter along with this one), this prize pack includes Things Jane Likes. This can be broken down (in no particular order) into: Swimming, home, food, sex, and reading.

Swimming: You get a postcard of the Old Sow, direct from Eastport.

Home: A pirate-themed magnet from Eastport, Maine.

Food: A cookbook from my favorite celebrity chef, Ina Garten

Sex: Saucy post-it notes, From Him and From Her

Reading: A 25$ gift card to Barnes and Noble

There’s also a little map of Boston, so you can follow Jane’s adventures in Tracking the Tempest.

All very fun, and all very Jane.

You can enter the contest in the following ways:

(x1 entry) Comment on this post to be entered automatically

(x5 entries each for each copy) Show me proof you’ve bought Tempest OR Tracking (email to iheartselkiesATgmailDOTcom a photo or screenshot of a receipt or a picture of the book at home–let me know whether or not I can post it on the blog if it’s a picture of the book at home)

(x3 entries each for each book) To show my League Love: Show me proof you’ve bought any of my fellow Leaguers MOST RECENT RELEASES (email to iheartselkiesATgmailDOTcom a photo or screenshot of a receipt or a picture of the books at home). This is only for their MOST RECENT releases, not every book they've ever written, so check the sidebar or their author websites to figure out which you need to buy/use.

(x3 entries each) Provide in comments links to reviews of Tracking the Tempest OR Tempest Rising you’ve done on your blog, Amazon, Goodreads, etc.

(x2 entries each) Follow me on Twitter or Facebook (if you already follow me, just let me know)

(x1 entry each medium) for pimping this post (Facebook, Twitter, blog post, etc)

I will choose a winner at random on Monday, July 26th at 12:00 Eastern time. Contest is international, cuz I love my non-American fans just as much.

To my established fans (all 13 of you :-) ): thank you SO MUCH for your support and kind words. You guys make this writing gig worth it!

And to people new to this site: Thanks for coming by and I hope you like it here. Jane’s got lots of adventures to come, as do all my fellow authors. We hope you’ll come along for the ride!

Finally, to my fellow Leaguers: I honestly couldn't dream of having done this without you. I'd have lost my marbles months ago without you. For realz, yo.
