This, a Winner, and That part 3

MOOD STATUS: "Busy". Jane, stop this crazy summer!

Thanks so much to everyone who stopped by Writing Routine Wednesday to say hi and hear about Rhonda's writing routine!
I'm having so much fun reading all the author's writing habits. :)

But, yes, now the important part.
The book winner.

The lucky commenter who will receive Rhonda's YA book PUCKER UP is...

Julie Musil!!!

Please e-mail me the address you'd like the book mailed to. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And now a little of this and that...

I'm pleased to announce that my writing friend Chicki Brown has a book just released out on Kindle called HAVE YOU SEEN HER?

Here's the blurb:

If she’d stayed any longer, her husband would have killed her.

Frantic to escape his drug-induced brutality, socialite Marcia Hadley escapes Santa Barbara and flees to Atlantic City. She’s sold everything she owns, rents a seedy inner city apartment and attempts to disappear as Dani Reynolds, cocktail waitress at Frenzy, a neighborhood nightclub.

Taylor Villanova, the club’s sexy multi-racial bouncer recognizes her naiveté and volunteers to teach her about surviving in the “hood.” Fearful and suspicious of men, Dani is at first repelled by his violent profession yet drawn to the compassionate nature that contradicts Taylor’s macho persona. But when her well-laid plans go awry, and Dani discovers someone is following her, she must put her complete trust in Taylor. Her time is running out.

The great news is that you DON'T have to own a Kindle to read it. You can download the FREE Kindle app for your PC or phone. Now that's convenient. :)

Check it out!

Well, that's all for me folks.
Last day of surf camp for the kidlet is today then we're hitting the beach again this afternoon. (And probably the rest of the weekend, too)

Have a Happy Independence Day!

This whole Kindle thing is crazy and wonderful for authors. Very interesting! :O)

The Kindle for PC is great. I had that before I had my Kindle-Kindle. That way you can take advantage of awesome deals without forking over lots of dough.

Hope you have a lovely 4th of July weekend, Jennifer!

Vicki Rocho said...

Congrats, Julie! I love it when people I "know" win things! Almost as fun as winning myself.

I have the Kindle for PC thing and downloaded my first book last night. I have resisted the ebook urge so far, and they will NEVER replace paper books, but I may need to rethink my opposition to ereaders in general. It was that cool.

Have a great weekend!

Terri Tiffany said...

Congratulations Julie!
It's raining here in Florida but I doubt I would do the beach on the 4th--you're brave:)

Kristi said...

Congrats Julie!!!!

And have a happy and safe 4th with the family, Jennifer!

PS-love the word kidlet. LOVE!

Happy Independance Day to all my American bloggers. I have the kindle on my wish list but may have to try the pc reader before then. Thanks for the tip.

Liza said...

No Kindle for me yet, but the blurb looks intriguing!

Mary Campbell said...

Congrats to the winner Pucker Up looks really cute. Have You Seen her looks compelling. Your so great to plug your friends books.

Julie Musil said...

Thank you Jennifer! I can't wait to read it. I'll send my address via email. I can't wait to read this book.

And your friends book sounds so exciting! Congrats to her.

Chicki said...

Thank you, Jennifer! Everyone has been so supportive.

Right now I'm deep in promoland, but we're having a family BBQ on Sunday and all of the grandkids are going to show off their skills on the Slip & Slide.

Have a great weekend!

Sandy Shin said...

Congratulations, Julie! :)

Oh, I didn't know there's a free Kindle app! I'm not sure if it works for Mac, but I'll try to find out. :)
