And the Winners are...

Well, the results are in, the winers have all been chosen and I've invited a friend to drop by and give us a drumroll to accompany my announcement of the winner's names.

And, just because I do love winners, I'm giving away a second copy of Iron to the first person who writes in and correctly names that drum!! 

 Um, I don't mean the drum itself, I'm asking what that type of drum is called.

And speaking of Iron...

Even though it was mysteriously missing from the polls this morning, my book, Iron, is also up for book of the week at Whipped Cream/Long and Short Reviews. 

Personally, I blame the pixies for all the confusion. 

But if anyone has not yet voted for one of the many other fine books that are up there this week and would be so inclined to cast your vote its way, I'd be hugely and eternally grateful. 

Here's the link to the poll:
And here's what Holly had to say about it in her review:  

"Iron is a tale of love lost, passion denied, and a reawakening of desire long buried. 

I love that as the story goes on, Aislinn convinces Gavin that anything agreed upon in their bed is acceptable, as long as they both agree. And I also loved that Gavin came to appreciate Aislinn for herself, needing her to be his wife as herself. The sex is sizzling, and more so because of the time setting. There are tears and laughter here, and the happy ever after is an unusual one. 

If you enjoy magic and history, this is the book for you."


Trick or Treat?

We're talking, of course, about eye candy. And I've assembled a collection of costumed cuties for your viewing pleasure... I put this guy first in honor of all the truly hot Firefighter stories Liquid Silver Books has been putting out this year. Get it? Putting out? Fires? Yeah, I know. Bad pun. *g* Cowboy dude has to come next because I know so many people adore them. Personally, my tastes run a little more to the urban side of things... Urban Fantasy, that is. These two would fit right in with In the Dark, my first vampire story, coming out in December. And, speaking of which...
Yeah, I don't know what his costume is supposed to be, but he looks just like one of my main characters, so he stays. But, moving right along...
Skater Dude took the easy way out with his costume, but I don't think we should hold it against him. And at least he made more of an effort than this guy: Hmm. Don't think I'll hold that against him, either.
Oops. Guess these guys weren't ready...
"Come as you are, as you were, as you..." Oh, sorry. Got carried away. Yep. This guy's dressed up as the late Kurt Cobain.

I've included him mostly because Kurt was a Pisces and no blog post can possibly be considered complete without at least one random astrology reference, IMO. This one is in honor of my newly completed Angel story, Edge of Heaven. Very excited about that one. We'll see where it ends up... Um, yeah, well...these two don't really need an explanation, do they? Sometimes, pictures really are worth a thousand words, I guess...

Okay, I know. You're probably saying, "Uh...PG? This is a costume?" But, yes, in fact, it just so happens it is. This guy has come to the party dressed as one of the heroes in Cooper Davis' excellent novella, Boys of Summer.

And that pretty much wraps up my contribution to the tour. From here you'll want to head over to Cat Kane's blog at: http://catkane.blogspot.com

Cat's super hot novella Afterthought is just one of the many fabulous books you could win today.
