Yeah, it's here. April 15th already. For those of us in the States, our taxes have to be filed by midnight...sigh.
However, a bunch of restaurants have special deals today, and if you visit any Starbucks and bring a to-go mug with you, you can get a cup of free brewed coffee all day long!!!
Also, the lovely ladies at Magical Musings invited me over for a visit--along with Cynthia Eden, Karin Tabke and Lesley Kagen--to talk about "the greatest joy and greatest angst" of publishing. It was fun having a chance to answer those questions, and even more enjoyable to read the other authors' responses. :)
Finally, those of you who've checked out the "Contests" page on my website already know that I have a giveaway that ends today. I've pasted the contest rules and prizes below. I'll draw the winning names tomorrow and post the results by Monday. Good luck!
I want to celebrate the sale of my third novel by giving away three different gifts, each present representing one of my books:
For According To Jane~an autographed copy of my debut novel, since that's the only one of the three on the shelves so far. (But soon there will be more. Very soon!)
For Friday Mornings at Nine~a 128-page Book of Appetizers, packed with recipes.
And for The Grand European~a hardcover journal that features maps of the world on the front and back covers.
(I'll add in a 3-pack of Starbucks VIA™ coffee for each of the 3 winners, too!!)
To be eligible to win, simply leave a comment on one (or more) of my Blog posts dated anytime between March 5th and April 15th. Please include your email address along with your comment(s), so I can reach you. I'll draw the three winning names in mid-April and send out the prizes then.
That's about it for now. Off to write about my heroine seeing Venice, Italy for the first time... Is it a city any of you you have been to? If so, what were your first impressions??
