Free Book Friday: Wow


Seriously. Wow.

A Hero’s Redemption is the second book in my Haven series for Silhouette Romantic Suspense. It’s an October 2007 release.

Is this cover hot or what?! :snoopy:

And now, for more fun! Prize-palooza!

Okay, here’s what we’ve got. SIX grab bags of goodies!!! If I tried to describe everything in each grab bag, I’d be here all day (and I can’t do that, I’ve got a deadline, LOL). So here’s how I’m going to describe the grab bags. There are FIVE reader grab bags and ONE writer grab bag.

Each READER grab bag includes one (UNautographed) book PLUS fun goodies. The books are: The Secret Passion of Simon Blackwell by Samantha James, McKettrick’s Luck by Linda Lael Miller, a Secrets anthology with Angela Knight, Alexa Aames, Leigh Wynfield and Jennifer Barlowe, The Shoe Queen by Anna Davis, and Savannah Breeze by Mary Kay Andrews. The fun goodies included with each book include a random handful of cool stuff like buttons (from Nora Roberts and others), author promo pens, drink huggies, coasters, excerpt brochures of upcoming releases, bookmarks, post-it notes, magnets, bracelets, tattoos (not kidding here), even a cat can plastic lid to cover up your pet food. There’s a “mighty grip” and some kind of shampoo, candy, luggage tags, and can openers, and well–some stuff that I don’t even understand, LOL.

I collected all these promotional items from the RWA conference goody room, where conference attendees load up on all they want at the beginning of each conference. (One year, I got this cool plastic cup shaped like a cowboy boot–man, my daughter LOVES that cup!!) Shhh, don’t tell her that this year I’m giving it all away. (Her bedroom is FULL of this stuff from past conferences! She LOVES the pens especially!)

For the WRITER grab bag–it includes a CD of the conference handouts, the RWA 2007 conference pin, a copy of the August RT magazine, the conference notepad, and a copy of Suzanne Brockmann’s “Going Deep with POV” brochure with the text from her workshop of the same name.

Six winners in all–five reader bags, one writer bag. To win: drop a comment here and let me know if you want your name in the hat for one of the reader bags or for the writer bag (or both).

(Winner from yesterday of an autographed copy of 2 Bodies for the Price of One by Stephanie Bond–comment #2, Bonnie! Email me!)

    As tempting as it is, since I already won this week, it wouldn’t be fair to include my name in this draw. Next time!

    So I will wish everyone a great day and weekend and will check back on Monday.

    Reader bag!!! Reader bag!!!

    Our 10-year-old daughter LOVES conference goodies. Even more than carefully selected treasures from conference host cities.

    She has collected (through her Dad) koozies, chapsticks, key chains, id holders, water bottle holder, pins, pens, folders, notebooks, notepads, sunglasses, coin purses…an amazingly ecclectic collection. But she manages to use almost everything!

    There was a big convention in our town recently. She wanted to go. I tried to explain that you simply don’t just go. You have to register. For this conference, that was about $300. She paused. How much for the souvenirs?

    Congrats on the new book. Am I in trouble with you if I admit to being a Harry Potter addict? My husband has threatened to tell me the ending if I’m not nice to him.

    Have a great weekend y’all.

  11. Nicole Reising says:

    Oh the reader goodie bag sounds wonderful – doesn’t everyone need a cat can cover :catmeow: One year I won some goodies from an author and she had to tell me that one item was a plastic support handle for a shopping bag – I guess that was a good item for grabbing lots of goodies but you sure couldn’t tell that’s what it was πŸ˜• .

    And like everyone else I think the cover is great :purr:

  35. Toni Anderson says:

    Nice cover Suzanne!! I’d love to be in either/both draws. Suzanne Brockmann is my all time favorite writer. I would take her home if I could but think that’s called kidnapping so probably not a good idea πŸ™‚

  36. Cheryl S. says:
