It's Here . . .
I'm thrilled to be able to say that THE RECRUIT is now in the stores! As always, I love to hear where you see it. Dave was out and about today and saw it at Target and Safeway, which is always nice to see on the first day. I also found out the name of the cover model today--let's say hello to Thierry Pepinn. :)
On a much more serious note, I know many of you are dealing with the devastating fall out from Sandy. We are all thinking about you and hoping you are safe!
First I want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who participated in this giveaway. As I said in my comments, it is really fascinating to see the many different ways you guys found the books. I also loved hearing about everyones favorites. I've always wondered whether people who read my books share a similar reading taste, and I think you guys have proved it. With few exceptions, your favorite authors are my favorite authors.
Anyway, since there was such fantastic response this, I've decided to pick a few more names for a little thank you gift.
So without further ado . . .
WINNER of THE RECRUIT pre-production copy: Pam Wright!
Special "thank you" winners: Corrie McDermott, Kim P, Andrea Grant Snider
If all four of you could email me at the contact address on my website here ASAP that would be great. Thanks again to you all!
As I mentioned on FB, I have a hot little pre-production copy of THE RECRUIT just waiting to find a happy new home. FB is kind of funny about contests/giveaways, so I'm hosting it here on the blog, but feel free to comment in the link post on FB instead.
So I can get this to someone ASAP, I'll pick a winner on Monday 10/15 after 5 pm PST, so make sure to check back here (and on FB) to see if you won. You'll have until Tuesday 10/16 at 5 pm PST to EMAIL ME with your snail mail address. If I don't hear from you, I will pick a different winner.
The usual contest rules apply (here), except where stated differently (i.e. the time requirement above). International is okay, and only one comment will be counted (either here or FB). If I left anything out, I'll update.
I thought I would make you work for it a little this time, LOL. So tell me more about YOUR reading preferences:
(1) How did you first discover me or my books?
(2) What was the first Monica McCarty book you read (okay if you haven't read one yet!)
(3) What is your favorite romance sub-genre? (i.e. historical romance, contemporary, paranormal, suspense, military, etc.)
(4) Do you read other Scottish authors? If yes, who?
(5) Who are your favorite romance authors?
(6) What is your favorite Monica McCarty book?
(7) Who is your favorite Monica McCarty hero?
That's it. Good luck, and don't forget to check back on Monday night.
UPDATE: Thanks for the head's up on my screwed up dates. Just fixed. Sorry about that!
