Updates and Paperback Giveaways!

Whew, The Intersection of Purgatory and Paradise is done with editing! With any luck, I'll be able to post the cover and official release date sometime next week!

Also, the count down to my next cross-country move has officially begun! I really don't want to move, though, because.... well, Monterey is awesome.

Thankfully, moving is still six months away. Right now, I'm doing general down-sizing while I research which little suburb of northern Virginia I'm inclined to call home for the next 2-4 years. It turns out I still have 4 extra copies of my last two books stacked on top of the printer that I was going to give away. Real life happened and I forgot all about the paperbacks as I tried to wrap up my "grungy tattoo artist meets disillusioned Texas cowboy" story and finish the last proof-read of Purgatory and Paradise. 

So, in the interest of not having movers (who are never as sexy in real life as they are in my imagination) look at me funny when they find me hoarding multiple copies of the same m/m books, I'm doing rafflecopter giveaways below!

Here are the Official Terms and Conditions, which I had entirely too much fun drafting:

By entering, you're stating that you are at least 18 years of age and acknowledge that you are willfully entering a contest for a novel that contains adult themes. By entering, you agree you will not hold the party organizing the giveaway liable for any damages that might arise in the course of reading said novel, including but not limited to: paper cuts, arousal, potential rises in blood pressure, and any ramifications enforced by concerned parents who snoop through your reading material if you enter the giveaway despite being underage. 
Giveaway will run for two (2) weeks from February 23, 2015. Entries will be accepted on and winners randomly selected according to whatever algorithm the aforementioned website utilizes to determine raffle winners.
Four (4) signed paperback copies of both books are available to win. No purchase is necessary to enter/win. Approximate retail value of prize is $16.99.
Winners will be notified by email and will have 72 hours to reply and tell me where they would like their book sent. Failure to provide a valid shipping address after the 72 hour deadline will result in my fiddling with the diction used in the subject line of the notification email to try and bypass automatic spam blockers, followed by a second notification email. Failure to reply within 24 hours of the second attempt at notification will result in a new winner being selected. USPS Tracking numbers will be provided by email one the novel has shipped; however, the party organizing the giveaway is not responsible for loss/damage during shipping. 
While not an official term or condition, the party organizing the giveaway herein referenced would like to officially state she misses the days of drawing random numbers from a Santa hat.

I've only got 6 more months to enjoy this place.... Sadness:(

Escaping from Dreamspinner Press’s Downward Spiral

This sucks. I hate having to post this, but it’s time. Like so many Dreamspinner Press authors, I haven’t been paid royalties owed to me ...
