FM Static, Girl, Interrupted, and the Power of Family
But before I get to that I need to give you a run-down of contests being held across the blogosphere for Prophecy of the Sisters and Guardian of the Gate swag.
The Story Siren just started her giveaway today. The swag includes a custom-designed Sonia necklace plus lots of other goodies including a signed Prophecy paperback. By Pen or By Sword is holding a contest for a signed hardcover of Guardian of the Gate AND a signed cover of The Hollow by Jessica Verday in honor of our upcoming Ghost and Graves Tour in October.
Lastly, you can still get a free, Limited Edition bookplate for your Prophecy paperback (I already gave some other ones out for the hardcover) through July 13th!
