Curl Up With a Book…and a Nook (STICKY. Scroll down for new content)

My good friend Lauren Dane and I both have a new release on January 5th, 2010. To celebrate we’re teaming up to bring you this contest. Thirteen chances to win books, plus a shot at winning your very own Nook!

Two contests:

1.) The main contest is for the Nook and it ends on January 5th. This post will remain sticky so people can enter until then.

2.) The Book-a-Day contests will be daily, except for the 24th and 25th of December (Christmas, y’all). Check back here and on Lauren Dane’s blog ( to enter those. Scroll down past this sticky post for those. There’s one today, so scroll on down.


1. Copy the code (click on ’share’) of the graphic above and post it to your blog. Add a link to my blog from your blog, saying something like, “Click here to enter Curl Up with a Book…and a Nook Contest”.

2. Publish your blog.

3. Come back here and reply to this post with a link to your blog entry and your answer to the following question: What new books are you looking forward to loading onto your Nook (should you win it) in the New Year?

If for whatever reason you’re technically challenged and can’t post the graphic, that’s okay. Just blog about the contest and provide a link to it. That’s a totally fine alternative.

What if you don’t have a blog?

Tell at least one other people about the contest who you think might want to enter. Post about it in a forum, on a loop, a friend via email, on MySpace, Facebook ect. Obviously, I can’t verify if you did it or not, so this is on the honor system. Once you’ve done that, reply to this post and tell me about it. Oh, and don’t forget to answer the question: What new books are you looking forward to loading onto your Nook (should you win it) in the New Year?

BOOK-A-DAY CONTESTS – more chances to win!

Be sure and check in every day from December 21st to January 5th. I will be giving away THIRTEEN books by Lauren Dane and she will be giving away THIRTEEN books of mine over on her blog ( Check back every morning on this blog and also on Lauren’s blog ( to enter for a chance to win that day’s book.

Drawings will be done randomly out of a bowl, so blame my husband or my daughter if you don’t win. Check in the next day for the winner of the previous day’s book.

Rules, Regulations, Flotsam & Jetsam

The biggie: You must be at least 18 to enter! By entering this contest you’re saying that you are at least 18 years of age. Not all of the books that will be given away are erotic, but some of them REALLY are.

As far as the book-a-day winners go, I will pay for international postage, so if you win a book during the course of the month and live outside of the U.S., no worries on that score.

All postage within the U.S. will be media mail, so you’ll have to be patient for your book to arrive, in the event you win one.

You can win more than one book. This is all by random drawing, so I have no control over who wins what. Some people just luckier than others.

You must answer the posed question in your reply to be entered. This is supposed to be fun!

Other authors are totally eligible to enter. Authors are readers too, after all.

Lastly, this contest is VOID WHERE PROHIBITED.

this one If you want to know more about Wicked Enchantment, the first full-length novel in my new Dark Magick series, click here. You’ll find the first chapter and the book video.

  1. I tweeted

    I can’t wait to load lots of books. I plan to use an e-reader to load books that come out in hardback (ex. Dreamfever). I really don’t like carrying around those huge hardbacks. If a book is released in paperback, I’ll continue to buy it in book form.
