Hi everyone! I must start this post by saying I AM NOT A BLOGGER. Hehehehe. That said, I decided I must put up a blog for THE SEASON’s website. Other authors might have much more to say than I.
Well, it’s October, my favourite month, autumn my favourite season of the year, therefore, THE SEASON needs to do something extra special for readers. So for the week of Halloween, October 26 – 30, we’ll be spotlighting historical debut authors of 2009 and doing a 2009 Debut Giveaway. I know for sure Zebra’s entire debut line will be up for grabs as well as Avon’s. I see you clapping and cheering. Yep, what a better way to be able to try out a new author than by getting their book for free. If Harlequin taught me nothing (and their books have taught me plenty, mind you) is that sampling for free is the way to go. Authors, if your book debuted this year and you’d like to join in, please email me.
Also, this month I’m accepting entries for THE SEASON’s annual Best Historical Cover Contest. So authors, if you think your cover is a winner, send me the image at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for entries is Oct 22nd. Preliminary voting will go on from November 2nd – 13th. Final voting will occur November 30th – December 13th. I’m already seeing some gorgeous covers, so I know it will be hard to narrow it down to just one.
In December there will be a Christmas Giveaway (how could there not be, seriously). And in November I’ll be adding a Pinch of Paranormal to the mix. Four books for every month will hopefully whet your appetite for anything and everything not of this world.
I think that about wraps up the first post. All and any suggestions for the site are welcome by moi. Feel free to let me know what’s working for you and what’s not.
