1st Anniversary Luminous Summer Giveaway


It's been ONE YEAR since the launch of my debut novel, LUMINOUS, and it's been a wild ride of signings and events and parties and giveaways. Looking back, I can say there's nothing better than seeing your book on the shelves and hearing back from people who loved it. To celebrate this and to mark the one-year countdown of my next novel, INDELIBLE, due out July, 2013 by Harlequin Teen, I'm having a 1st Anniversary LUMINOUS SUMMER GIVEAWAY!


ONE lucky winner wins:
1. A gorgeous decorative butterfly-design gift box
2. A signed & dedicated hardcover copy of LUMINOUS
3. A $20 Barnes & Noble gift card
4. 1 package iridescent sparkle dust
5. 1 bottle green glitter glow-in-the-dark nail polish
6. Gobs of golden Werther's creamy caramel hard candies
7. A signed luminous bookmark

Gorgeous gift box pictured here: perfect for notes, stationary, jewelry, keepsakes or, my favorite: sweets!


1. A spunky "pink skull" zippered coin purse
2. A $10 Barnes & Noble gift card
3. A one-of-a-kind original butterfly art pendant made by Saundra
4. Whatever golden Werther's creamy caramel hard candies I can stuff into whatever space remains

Time flies on butterfly wings--all quiet and soft so I didn't even hear it passing. ;-)

This summer I'll be working on my WIP, having fun with the kids, and probably some housework thrown in there somewhere--unless the housekeeping fairy stops by and magically does it for me . . . um, so yeah, I'll be cleaning house. =D

Hoping the giveaway gods will grant me the grand prize (extra points for the alliteration?). =)

Okay, cleaning sounds responsible, but fun with the kids sounds luminous to me!

Thanks for spreading the word & big hugs go along with congrats from me to you. (Extra points for alliteration plus awesomesauce on top!)
