Winner of Trish Perry Book

Hello! I want to take a minute to congratulate Beverly on winning Trish Perry's book, Sunset Beach, and also to thank everyone who participated in the drawing.

As some of you know, my book, No Other, releases on Saturday, May 1st. I'm in the process of putting together some contests for the blog tour. During the month of May I plan to give away small prizes, such as copies of the book, posters, notepads and jewelry. At the end of the month there will be a grandprize giveaway, which will include the book, autographed poster, notebook with the No Other book cover, a sterling silver-gold overlay locket, goat's milk lotion and soap, a $10 Amazon gift certificate, a pearl bracelet w/ matching earrings and an assortment of postcards -- some with the book cover (autographed), and some of my daughter's talented photography. The total value of the prize is around $75. The winner will be chosen through a drawing at the end of the month. I'd like readers to have the opportunity to enter their names multiple times, so I'm working on some fun ways to do that. I'll have the details posted midweek. In the mean time, you may notice that No Other's cover is posted to the left on my blog. You can click on that to read the first chapter of the book.

Happy reading and God bless.

    Hehe, KM, coming from a scifi/fantasy chick, that's quite a compliment! Hey, Kat already knows this, but I snuck a unicorn into the sequel.:)
