Thanks for hanging in there! I really appreciate the company. This book means a lot to me, and I’m as nervous as a cat passing a row of rocking chairs about the release. I can’t wait until it’s out and you all get a chance to read it. But in the meantime, I do have more reasons to post (trying to think of another as I’m writing, actually! Really wished I’d been the organized writer and listed them before I started this countdown, but that’s not me!).
My next winner gets a $20.00 gift certificate from Amazon.com AND the choice of any two of my EC books for download, as well as a signed cover flat for Seduced by Darkness and whatever bookmarks and coverflats I can find around here! And the winner is…Ilona!
Ilona, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange delivery of your prizes. ~DD
So, back to reasons you should buy this book now?
Don’t you want to be one of the first to read it? Don’t you want to crow to your friends on all your lists about the new book you just read and give them hints about the fun they’ve missed? And since my yahoo group is going to be converted to a “talking” loop shortly, don’t you want to be able to come and talk to the group about what you’ve read and what you hope will come in the series? I can see lots of discussion about a certain flavor “sandwich”, a hairbrush, and a silver bullet…but only those who’ve read it will know what you mean!
Since I’m plotting book 4 in a couple of months, I want to listen in on those conversations because I don’t have a freakin’ clue what I’m going to put in the next book. I’d love y’all to spark an idea or two, so I’m not staring at a blank page!
Okay, it’s a purely selfish reason. I’m more than a little concerned that I haven’t got anything for book 4 other than rather vague thoughts of a dragon, a wolf, and a foursome. I really do need a little more to flesh out a plot, or I’ll be back where I was when I wrote Seduced, saying–OMG! They didn’t just do that! Because Nic and Alex kept giving me heart attacks with their surprises. I want the next book to be completely mapped out–maybe it will actually happen. I keep telling myself every time I start a book that I ought to think my story through, because at some point I do get stuck and have to wiggle out of some tight corners.
So, is that strong enough a reason for you there? If not, I’ll try harder tomorrow! ~DD
