BEA Left Behind Party!


Okay, so it wound up being on three of us, but I suppose if you want to join the fun, you should.

People are leaving for BEA — Book Expo America. For us authors, unless we’re being heavily promoted by our publishers, it’s not worth our going.

So best-selling author Anya Bast put out a call. Who wants to have a Left Behind party with her?

I think Anya’s way cool. Denise Agnew joined us, as well. Denise is also neat; we’ve known each other’s online personas for years.

So… what to give…

Well, it dawns on me that I now have five copies of the now-retired Lulu version of Trevor’s Song. I have nothing to do with them. Which means I’ll give one away, to mail anywhere in the world.

Just leave me a comment (complete with your e-mail so I can contact you!). I’ll pick a winner first thing Monday morning.

Want to up your chances? Tweet it. Mention it on Facebook. Like the West of Mars Fan page. Tell me in the comments what you’ve done. I’ll throw it all into a big hat and let one of the kids pick a name out.

Prefer e-books? I can do that, too. Pick your title of my four (not sure? Visit The Books page to see them — but note that I can’t give copies of the With Love anthology away) and Monday morning, some of you lucky folks will get Smashwords coupons.

Yep, it’s that easy.

Oh, and those of you worried about leaving your e-mail? Have no fears from ME. I don’t save e-mail or addresses (ask any of my friends, who are always getting e-mails from me, asking for their addresses along with useless promises that I’ll write it down THIS time).

If you’re an author who didn’t make it to BEA this year and would like to join the fun, holler. Anya, Denise and I would love to have you.

    Uh-oh! I didn’t leave my email at the other sites. Problem?

    I’ve been way too naughty to ever get raptured. Was never to be expected.

    So, I’m just sitting here watching Pirate movies and getting ready to read a Ghost Hunters book (strictly for research). Lovely day, really. 🙂

    I got a text message, right after 6pm hit, asking me if I was still alive. I was in the middle of doing the dinner dishes, so I waited to answer it. I think back on it now and wonder if my friend thought I disappeared because I didn’t answer right away?!
