It's a Party! Rules here

Welcome to the virtual launch party for Nowhere to Hide, plus a celebration of surpassing the 200 follower mark. I've decided to make things easy. All action will take place in the comments, but I'm going to post several separate excerpts, etc., today. Comments in any of them count toward winning one of my giveaway prizes. Headers will all say "Launch Party" so scroll down to join in.



What are the prizes? I've got bookmarks, post cards, notepads and other miscellaneous swag I picked up at RomCon. I've got books (some gently read).

To enter: leave a comment. For an extra chance to win, be one of my blog followers, either through Blogger/Google or Facebook Networked Blogs. Another chances to win by following me on Twitter. Also, enter my Swag contest (see the tab) for yet another chance.

The only "catch" is that this blog system doesn't collect your email address when you leave a comment, so you're going to have to check back to see if you won a prize.

If I draw your name, you'll have until Saturday to e-mail me with your snail mail address. Due to legal and postage issues, any snail mail prizes will have to be limited to US addresses. But if you're out of the US, there are still download type prizes, so don't go away!

Any party is a fun place to be in. I am in India, so would not be eligible for most of the stuff, but I still like being a part of whatever is up!

I agree with Rayna, any party is a fun place to be and it looks like you've outdone yourself on this launch party.

Thanks for joining in - it's early here, but we'll party all day. I'm going to leave this post on top (I hope--if I can figure out Blogger's system) and the action will continue below.

Congrats on the new book!

I know you'll be busy today, but don't forget to stop by Author Expressions this week. I posted an interview with Sharon Ervin. Her new romantic mystery novel, CANDLESTICKS, third in her series, has just been published.
