Want to Win a First CHAPTER Critique From Ms. Shreditor?

Today is my lucky day. Eight has always been my lucky number and, of course, today is 8/8/11 the luckiest day of the year!

In order to celebrate the luckiest day of the year for me, and to kick off the launch of my new novel, Ribbon of Darkness, I’m going to run a fun little contest this week.

As all of you know, Ribbon of Darkness is headed to your nearest store as we speak. It is a novel of romantic suspense and international intrigue that Meridian reviewer Jennie Hansen called, "gripping."

In order to help spread the word about its availability in stores and on Kindle, Ribbon of Darkness Kindle Edition is being offered at a special launch price of . . . you guessed it . . . $8.88!

Click here for the link:

But that’s not all! As a special bonus to my Ribbon of Darkness launch, Time Will Tell Kindle edition will also be on sale for $4.88.

Click here for the link.

So what’s the contest? All you have to do is help me get the word out about Ribbon of Darkness and the special launch price by doing one or more of these things. Each one gets you an entry into the contest.

1. Become a follower of this blog and like me on Facebook. (Links are on the sidebar)

2. You could tweet about Ribbon of Darkness and the Kindle special launch price and link back to my blog.

3. You could mention Ribbon of Darkness and the Kindle special launch price on Facebook and link back to my blog.

4. You could mention Ribbon of Darkness and the Kindle special launch price on your blog and link back to my blog.

5. You could mention Ribbon of Darkness and the Kindle special launch price on your Google + and link back to my blog.

If you do any one of the five things posted above, leave a comment and tell me what you did and I will enter you in the first drawing.

(Don't know what to say? You could say something like this if you want or change it to suit your needs: "New novel Ribbon of Darkness is a gripping romantic suspense that will keep you turning pages all night long. Kindle edition on sale this week for $8.88 Read more at

The prize for the first drawing is the choice of any one of my book titles listed below.

Through Love’s Trials
On the Edge
Dangerous Connections
Ribbon of Darkness

If you do three or more of the things listed above, you can leave a comment and tell me what three things you did and I will enter you in the drawing for the grand prize---a full chapter edit from Ms. Shreditor herself! (Limit ten double-spaced pages) OR you can choose to have a secondary character named after you in my next book. (It's your chance to be immortalized!)

That's right. YOU can have a full chapter edit from a national editor for free or see your name in print. Your choice.

So, help me spread the word and truly make this my lucky day (and yours)!

Julie I am a follower, I liked you on FB and mentioned Ribbon of Darkness in my blog

I'd really love to get a first chapter edit from Ms. Shreditor. As I said I'm writing my story after many failed attempts. So being critiqued would be of great help.

Have a great 8th month.

Hi Julie!
I liked you in real life and on FB :)
I'm a follower.
I twitted.

Um, I can't decide which prize I want...
Lunch with you? Is that one??

Thanks for the contest!
