At Last! A Winner!

It’s been an interesting week, and I almost forgot I was running a contest. However, I now have a winner! In fact, I have two!!

Since no one sent in any ghost stories, I pulled two recipe entrants out of the hat. So come on down:

Kelli Cheshire and and Kimmy Lane!

Email me at with what Samhain ebook you’d like, and I’ll get it to you ASAP! Well, faster than I wrapped up this contest, anyway.

Contest Extended!

Thanks to a lovely case of pneumonia, I am extending this month’s contest to Friday! (Because I promised the doctor I would go straight to bed when I got home. Yeah. Whatever.)


So keep entering those recipes and ghost stories!

November Contest!!

Well, it’s November 1st, which means it’s time for the insanity of NaNoWriMo. And since my word total is currently a giant goose  egg, I need to focus. But my blog has felt very lonely lately, and I need content! So the solution? A contest, of course!

So I’m giving away two prizes this month to two helpful readers!  Just for sharing something fun for the blog. And what can you share? Well, that was another question I had when brewing up this idea. Maggie from Let’s Dish would want to see recipes to add to her collection. But Brin in Another Time Around would want to know that she’s not alone being haunted by her past.

What do you need to do? Share your favorite recipe! OR you can help me extend the Halloween season while the stores put out Christmas, and send me your favorite story of the paranormal, be it hauntings, UFOs, whatever! Just email your contribution to:

All entries will be shared on the blog, and the authors of one recipe and one story will be randomly selected to win their choice of a Samhain ebook!

Entries accepted until Novemer 15, with winners drawn on the 16th! And yes, you can enter more than once! Your name will go in as many times as you enter a recipe or story!

So start sharing, folks. Help a girl out during NaNo!

New Contest!

A Romance Treasure Hunt!
20 authors, over 20 prizes, 20 chances to win. Read below to learn how to enter.
September 16-30

World War I is over, jazz music is blossoming, the flapper changes the definition of modern women, Art Deco is peaking, and the Great Depression looms! Go back to school (just for a few minutes) and learn about this fascinating era through photos. You’ll have a chance to win one, or perhaps several, prizes donated by some of your favorite romance writers!

Here’s how it works: Find one image (it won’t be hard) on each of the following websites. They could be Mickey Mouse as Steamboat Willie, a well known image from the Dust Bowl, or perhaps a flapper! You’ll know it when you see it. The more images you find (each author has only posted one image), the more chances you have to win. Find one image, you are entered once! Find twenty, and your name is entered twenty times!
One you have danced your way through the sites, email your answers to

NB: If you want to opt out of being put on any newsletter lists, please just tell us so in your answer email. We will NOT be offended! We promise that if you opt out, it will NOT affect your chances of winning.

Here’s how to answer: “I found a flapper on Betty’s new release page.” No links, please!

Easy? You bet. Want to get started? Here are your links! Contest opens 9/16 and closes 9/30 EST. Good luck. Now, 23 skidoo, scram. And have fun!
