Celebration + a Giveaway!

I firmly believe bragging is a big no-no. So what I'm about to do isn't bragging; it's celebrating! The Lucky Charm has been on sale since 5/4, and in less than three weeks, I've sold 1,000 copies.

This may be small beans to some people, and huge to others, but I can tell you what it feels like to me: it feels like an impossible reality that so many people have embraced me as an author.

All I can really say is two simple words: thank you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Plus, a celebration isn't really a celebration without two things, booze and gifts. Unfortunately I can't really pop open any bubbly with you, but I can do something about the gifts.

I'm giving away 5 copies of The Lucky Charm, either for your Kindle or your Nook. No strings, no hoops, just enter using the rafflecopter below. I'll give you an extra entry if you follow me on twitter and pretend (if briefly) that you're even vaguely interested in my inane mutterings. But I will add that right now, twitter is the best way to get updates on the sequel to The Lucky Charm, featuring Noah Fox.

The sequel does currently have a title, but I won't be releasing it for a few months. Suffice it to say, the title rocks. And so far, I can pretty safely say that I think the book rocks too. Eventually I'll be putting together a mailing list, which will be an even better way to get updates, but for right now, twitter or facebook are probably your best bets.

Also, Sarah from Smart Bitches Trashy Books and Jane from Dear Author do a great podcast, and in this latest episode, they talk about The Lucky Charm. I thought that Jane really "got" what I was trying to do with the book, plus the conversation she and Sarah have about reviewing in general is really interesting.

One last self-congratulatory post. . .Mandi Schreiner from Smexy Books did a great review a few weeks ago about The Lucky Charm but she also has put together a post for USA Today, featuring The Lucky Charm as a must-read for summer. Check it out!

For those of you that have asked about Kobo, I'm going to try to get The Lucky Charm loaded on there this weekend. I'll definitely post an update when it's live and available for purchase. Also, the paperback copies of The Lucky Charm are also available now!

Without further ado, here's the giveaway!
