It's My Birthday Week-Let's Have a Contest!

This past weekend I finished up final line edits on Silken Canvas, my December release from Samhain. I love this book so much and can't wait to share it with all my readers!

Brendan Cole burst onto the art scene in a blaze, creating erotic works of art from beautiful women. Recently, though, reviews suggest that his brilliance is burning out. He knows what’s missing—inspiration. He lost it the day his ex-lover and muse, Ashley Mancuso, walked out on him.
Together, they can once again create the erotic images that will silence the critics forever.
When Ashley runs into Brandon at an art gallery, their attraction is as hot as ever. Though she swore to never again take second place to his art, she finds herself agreeing to an impromptu photo shoot. Once in front of his lens, five long years of suppressing her kinky side melts away—and shakes her resolve to keep it strictly business.
One spellbinding session after another makes it impossible to resist talking of fantasies and long-buried desires. But once the images hit the gallery walls, all the fears and insecurities that drove them apart create a rift wide enough for danger to find its way in…
Warning: Contains a sexy, tortured artist, his gorgeous muse, and a string of pearls that creates one very erotic BDSM fantasy.

Silken Canvas will release on Dec 25th, 2012.

As release day draws closer, I'm planning some fun giveaways, but even though it's too far away for that yet, we can still celebrate. My birthday is Wednesday! So to celebrate, I'm giving away a $10 Samhain gift card. Silken Canvas isn't available for pre-order yet, but I have an extensive back list if you'd like to try some of my other stories. Or take your pick from some of the other talented Samhain authors. Up to you.

All you need to do is leave a comment along with your e-mail address. The contest will run through Wednesday and I'll pick a winner on Thursday. I'm planning my promo now for Silken Canvas, so in your comment I'd like to know how you find out about the books you end up buying. Facebook? Twitter? Publisher loops? Amazon suggestions? Blogs? Ads? Where should I focus my limited promotional time & money? I'd love to know!

Sounds like a good book, great cover. I find out about books from others blogs, facebook, or twitter. On facebook & twitter I see what others post, I have found some great authors from facebook and twitter friends. Blog posts-I find most of my book and author recommendations from these. I follow the blogs and they do the recommendations. I also received some books this way also. Thanks for the giveaway.
Hope you have a great bday.

Happy Birthday!! Is it December yet? I usually find out about books through friends on Facebook, and Twitter, and also through blog posts. I don't really pay attention to ads or even Amazon suggestions.

Happy Birthday! Hope you have a great day.

Most of the time, I find new books via blogs, but also on Amazon suggestions, facebook, etc. Unfortunately, the people in my real life don't enjoy reading or enjoy the same types of books I do so I don't get recommendations from them.

Happy Birthday. I usually see the authors promoting their new books on their blogs.

Word of mouth is the most influential methods of book finding for me. Twitter plays the next largest role.

Good luck with the blog tour!

Mary Hughes said...

Happy Birthday! I find most of my new reads at the library which doesn't help much lol. Second is free short stories followed by covers that catch my eye at blog sites.

Looking forward to Silken Canvas!

I usually find out about books through a few review blogs that I follow up daily and some Yahoo group leads to blogs. My friends don't share my main reading interests so their influence is limited.

Happy birthday, Natasha, hope you day involves cake of some kind!

As for stories, I find new authors and books on publisher loops like Samhain, my favorite blogs and messages on my Facebook page.
