Ten Lords a’Leaping Right Off the Page!

OffTheEdge-CarolynCrane-500x750Today I’m so pleased to host my BFF, best conference roommate ever and critique partner extraordinaire, Carolyn Crane! The only downside of our truly excellent friendship is the 1,200 miles that separate us.

So, in lieu of meeting for some holiday cocktails, we’re having a little party here today.

Carolyn’s giveaway is particularly exciting because she’s offering to send a collection of her favorite candy treats – and she has excellent taste – along with an ARC of her new Associates novel, Off the Edge! Seriously very fun because I’m one of the few people who’s read it so far and it’s just AWESOME. Steamy jungles, romantic Bangkok and a linguistics hero to die for. The first book in her series, Against the Dark, has received all kinds of love, so I know people will be excited to get their mitts on a digital copy of the next one in the series!

Same rules apply as mentioned in the first post of the Twelve Days of Gifts – just share the Facebook posts, on Twitter or elsewhere and comment to let me know you did. Using the hashtag of #JK12DaysGifts helps us find you that much faster! I’ll draw Carolyn’s winner tomorrow morning. Everyone who enters any of the drawings all 11 days counting down to Christmas will be entered in the Grand Prize Drawing.

Good luck everyone!


In Other News…Exciting New Book!

againstsLGWow. What a week.

Terrorism at the Boston Marathon. (I think we can say that safely now.) Fertilizer plant explosion in Texas. Shoot outs, car chases, deaths as they chase down the Chechen perps in Watertown. And, as I write this, the entire city of Boston is shut down while they chase the guy on the loose.

And my good friend and crit partner’s new book, AGAINST THE DARK, releases today.


No, no, no. I don’t think so.

This is Carolyn’s first foray into Romantic Suspense, with a book that I think is the most exciting thing she’s done since her Disillusionists series, which I loved so much. It’s tight, suspenseful, sexy and with a great premise about the mysterious Associates – uber smart spies with niche expertise. Nerdgasm for the win!

So, if you’re looking for a little escape from the stranger-than-fiction horrific events of this week, how about some time with a safecracker and her sexy hot spy?

Nom. Seriously. Nom.
