Only a little over a week until Doubleblind comes out on Sept 29! People have sent me a few pictures from where they spotted the book already in the wild. Grimspace came out like two weeks early as well in select locations. I’m told readers are finding it in Hawaii, California, and Florida. I don’t know if it’s anywhere else yet.
This is the final week of the contests leading up to Doubleblind‘s release, and I have something special planned for y’all. I have a fabulous cover artist, Scott Fischer, who does a fantastic job on the Jax books. So to celebrate those covers, I’m giving away a print. You can pick art from Grimspace, Wanderlust or Doubleblind, whichever one you like better. It will be high quality and framable. My agent has some from Scott and she reports they’re absolutely beautiful, prettier than she expected. You can have one for your wall at home.
How do I get this? you ask. Simple. I’m calling on your creative side now. This is a fan-art contest. Bring one (or more) of the Jax characters to life, however you choose. Any means is fine: sketch, paint, clay, computer programs like Poser or Photoshop. Make a video out of Lego people, if you want, enacting your favorite scene. Whatever makes you happy, I want to see it. Here’s an example by Moira Rogers, the Bree half:
Once you’ve created your work, upload it somewhere & post a link here in comments. Be patient. I’ll check the spam folder often in case the link red flags your comment (and it does more often than not). One lucky winner will receive a print. The rest of you, I’ll create a fan art page and feature your work on my site. I’m super excited about this, and I hope y’all are too.
For those of you who are far too
lazy busy to do this, I’m giving away a copy of the Mammoth Book of Vampire Romance 2. I have a story in it. It’s called CIRCLE UNBROKEN, and I’m actually pretty proud of it. To win this, you have to promise to read my story first. I’ll post the winner(s) on Sept 29, which means you have until next Monday at 11:59.
Good luck to everyone! Can’t wait to see what you come up with.
