RWA 2013 Wrap-up + Take What You Want E-book Giveaway

I’ll admit it: this time last week I was an absolute wreck. After months and months of looking forward to it, this year’s national RWA convention was finally here. Did I have enough cool clothes? Were my shoes amazing enough? Shouldn’t I get around to writing that pitch I was supposed to give? Would I clam up and have a panic attack right before my first ever book signing?

Happily, my outfits and shoes were all a hit, and I felt confident and prepared walking into what turned out to be a very successful pitch appointment. I went to some great workshops and learned a lot.

I can hardly tell you how exciting it was to meet readers and potential readers. Because Take What You Want is only available in e-book format, I signed postcards as opposed to actual hard copies of the book, but still. Talk about a dream come true.

And it gets even better. My publisher, Samhain, was generous enough to provide some extra download codes for the book, so I can share at least a little bit of the excitement of RWA with those of you who couldn’t be there.

Enter to win one of three free download codes for the book by leaving a comment below with your email address. I’ll choose the winners on Monday, July 29.

Thanks, and good luck!

  1. Congrats on the release!! I must have missed that during my Twitter hiatus!!

  2. Excited for you!

  3. I think I saw someone tweeting about having their recently acquired RITA travel through security on a flight home. Having never been to the RWAs, I feel like I’m really missing out on some thing. Would love to read TWYW. The premise sounds tasty.

  4. Count me in!

    Love your writing!

  5. I would love a copy of your book!

  6. Congrats on your first book signing. Wish I’d known to come by your table! Next time put it on the CRW loop so we can show our support. Glad your pitches and fashion worries were unnecessary and all went well.

    • Aw, thanks! When I moved, I let my CRW membership lapse, even though it pained me to do so. But next time I’ll see if I can’t get someone from the chapter to sneak it onto the loop for me. 🙂

  7. Of course I want one! x

  8. Congrats! You have published not one but book? How Twitter has failed me again. Would love anything you write.

  9. Did I hear e-book giveaway? Sign me up. I have no idea what RWA is as I am a secluded Canadian with hardly any internet access and no cable tv (le gasp) but I do know Jeanette Grey and am proud to support. Even if I have never been to a book signing. *waves* just in case.

    • RWA is Romance Writer’s of America, and they just had their annual national convention last week. Don’t worry – being a secluded Canadian has nothing to do with it. I probably should have specified. And for what it’s worth, I don’t have cable TV either.

      Thanks for the support!

  10. I want it! I loved your first book. How did I miss this release?

  11. Entries are now closed! Congrats to the lucky winners, TDot, Tracy, and Jo! I’ll be in touch via email shortly. Thanks to everyone who entered.

    • WOOOHOOO I won. I took what I want and I will be back for more. Now I need to find the time to read. So many good books. I can’t choose which one to read next.
      Anydoodle, thanks for the book and I am proud that you don’t have cable tv too. I don’t feel so alone and everyone thinks I am strange so I tell them I can’t afford it, I would rather buy healthy food then watch junk tv. Leaves more time for reading when I steal the internet use. 1000 ebook collection, no tv. Paradise.
      Hugs and kisses,
