Because it’s January. And that means it’s either cold and dreary where you are–or it’s hotter than the hammered-down hinges of hell because you’re in the southern hemisphere. Either way, let’s amuse ourselves, shall we?
I am polling readers to find out your favorite quotes of mine–they can be from the Julia novels or novellas, A SPEAR OF SUMMER GRASS, THE DEAD TRAVEL FAST, or the blog itself. Even tweets and FB remarks are fair game! Just leave your favorite quote in the comments to win. Oh, and what am I giving away? A SIGNED ARC OF CITY OF JASMINE, THAT’S WHAT.
Contest is open to everybody–so hush, Canada, I told you I’d include y’all!–and here are a few guidelines: quotes should be short and pithy. If you see someone’s already submitted a quote here, on FB, or on Twitter, please don’t repeat it. The first entry is the one that counts, and since I have to organize the entries, it’s really just a kindness to me to choose a different quote. (And much appreciated!) I will leave the contest open until Friday evening my time, so you have approximately two days to enter. I’ll select the winner and notify this weekend, so please check back with the blog, FB, and Twitter to see if you’ve won. Alright, chickens–let’s PLAY!
Two quick reminders: this Saturday at 2pm I’m appearing at the Salem Church branch of the Rappahannock Library in Fredericksburg VA with Susanna Kearsley and Joanna Bourne. We’re chatting and signing, so come see us! And don’t forget to pre-order WHISPER OF JASMINE, the digital prequel novella to CITY OF JASMINE. It’s FREE!
