The books for the Great Book Give-Away in April will be late coming to the contest page because my webmistress is now on vacation and due to circumstances beyond my control, I wasn't able to send her the list before she left.
I can, however, tell you the first two weeks' worth of books here, and the questions required to enter the drawing.
If you want to be eligible to win one of them, send your answer to me either from the bottom of the page at the "contact Anne" link or from my contest page. I will add your name to the list. Also, please include your name and snail mail address as well as the answer so I can just send out the books without having to track you down.
I'm still trying to catch up with everyone who won a book in March because I was gone for the last part of it and then those circumstances came along and I never got back here after March 31. So, my apologies for being late. I hope it won't happen again. I may need to ask you for a snail mail address if I don't already have one. It will only be used to send your book.
For the first week of April some of the books have to do with writing. So if you are a writer or interested in what writers read about when they are reading "how to" books and inspirational tomes, sign up to win one of the following books:
- Jessica Page Morrell, Writing Out the Storm
- Susan K Perry, Writing in Flow
- Chris Baty, No Plot? No Problem
- Jane Yoken, Take Joy
- Elizabeth Lyon, A Writer's Guide to Fiction
- Noah Lukeman, The Plot Thickens (there's some underlining in this one)
- Donald M Murray, Shoptalk
To enter the drawing, send me your name, address and answer to the following question:
In my min
i-series Beware of Greeks
, all of her heroes are Greek but one. I calls him my "honorary Greek tycoon" because he tried to take over The Santorini Bride
until I gave him his own book. What's his name and what's the name of his book?
The second week we have:
- Anne McAllister, Antonides' Forbidden Wife
- Cecelia Ahern, If You Could See Me Now
- Hester Browne, The Finishing Touches
- Lucy Gordon, Farelli's Wife
- Barbara Metzger, The Hourglass
- Fiona Walker, Lots of Love
- Sherry Thomas, Delicious
To enter the drawing for this week's books, send me the answer to the following questi
on (also include your name and snail mail address): I wrote a mini-series for Harlequin American called Quicksilver
. There were five books in the initial series. Thirteen years later I wrote a sixth book which came out as a Desire. Who was the hero and what was the name of the book?
Remember, if you enter for one week in April and you don't win, you are automatically entered in all of April's drawings, so you are welcome to answer the question and get another entry, but your original will still qualify you for the entire month's drawings.
Mitch and Micah are eying the treat box eagerly, raring to go and pick winners.
I'm putting together the books for the rest of the month now. They should be posted sometime around the 15th. Heather The Webmistress will be back by then, tanned and rested (I hope), and she will add the above, plus the rest of the month to the contest page.
I must admit I'm re-reading bits and pieces of the writing books before I send them off, looking for inspiration for Yiannis and Edie's story. I know a lot about her, oddly. I know less about him.
He's the Savas Mystery Man -- last noticed to any degree by his family when I wrote Tallie and Elias's book, The Antonides Marriage Deal
. Back then they still thought of him as a "forest ranger" because he'd worked for the National Forest Service a couple of summers while he was in college. That's a part of who he is -- or was. It's not who he is now.
Finding out who Yiannis is now is turning into a very interesting project. He owns a Porsche. An accomplished flirt, a notable playboy.
Who knew? And why? What happened?
