This is such exciting news, and what a fun contest. Count me in!

I've linked to my blog: calliekingston.blogspot.com

And, I'd love to interview you on my blog. I have lots of questions about your writing journey and decision to publish through Amazon.

Can't wait to check out your new book!

I have tweeted about this contest as well as mentioned it on my facebook. Both I think you are following. Unfortunately, you are not going to get me to take a picture with a sword. Good luck.

Upon Mr. Sankovich's rec, I purchased a copy for my kindle. The prologue has me hooked.

Now I must juggle the rest of my day to satisfy both my desire to read more and edit my own writing.

Good luck with your contest and your future sales.

Rebecca Knight said...

Catwoods: Thank you SO much! I'm thrilled to hear you're enjoying it so far :D.

Hello, long-time follower, first-time commenter. (I can't remember if I have commented on your blog before.)

I actually do have a picture of myself holding a sword (I'm not skilled enough to actually wield it) on my blog. I won it last year at WisCon in a drawing. Here's the link:

If that doesn't work, here's the blog post:

I would also be willing to interview you on my blog. Please e-mail me at sandra@sandraulbrich.com, and we'll set something up.
