Giveaway Time!


Eighteen days, can you believe it???  Eighteen days until the release of A WOLF AT THE DOOR.



So what’s a person to do, when they have to wait 18 whole days?  Try to win a copy in a giveaway, of course!

So that’s what I’m doing.  I will be giving away not one, not two, but FOUR copies of A WOLF AT THE DOOR.  Here is how it works.

You can leave a comment on this post.  That’s one entry.

You can leave a comment on my blog post.  That’s another entry.

You can leave a comment on my JJD Facebook page.  Yet another entry!

And you can leave me a comment on Twitter with the hashtag #sellyoursoulcontest

That’s FOUR entries for very little effort, but you have to leave the comments before midnight, Central time, on Tuesday July 24th.   I will be giving away one book from each site, to be announced next Wednesday, July 25th.  The idea being that if the winners get back to me quick, I can mail all the books on Saturday and you should have them well before the book becomes available to the general public.

**Disclaimer – You cannot win more than one book.  That’s just not fair.
**Disclaimer the second – I will accept international entries, but I can’t promise that the winners will get their books as early as the U.S. folk will.  Just works that way and it’s out of my hands.

Not at SDCC

Alas, I wish I was.

But even so, I had my son's 9th birthday party to celebrate today...and you know that laser tag and pizza with a bunch of little boys is *almost* as good as hanging out with all the brilliant stars and cosplayers in SDCC, right?

Anyway, short post today simply because I have a lot of company in town and things ran away from me time-wise. (Plus I had the added bonus of taking Tumbleweed to the vet yesterday -> bonus pictures here, if you're interested in seeing what  hedgehog looks like after she's been gassed so she can be examined. I live a charmed life, clearly.)

Next month I'll have a primo post - simply because it's right after AAD in NoLA, so lots of good things coming then! (And right now, it's all about finding some great swag to give away!) :)

Come See Da League at SDCC

If you happen to be in San Diego this week for one of the coolest frick'n cons in existence, you will of course be concerned not with how to get your spot as a Survivor in the Walking Dead Petco event, but with how to find the maximum amount of the League of Reluctant Adults all in one place. Right?
