KNIGHT'S CURSE releases today!

Well, the day is finally here. KNIGHT'S CURSE is on sale in bookstores all over the country. It's hard to believe that just one year ago, practically to the day, I got "the call" from my agent telling me Harlequin Luna made an offer on the manuscript. I've been floating on Cloud 9 ever since. :)

It's funny how certain days when momentous events happen will stick in your mind. I remember exactly what I was doing at the time the call came. I was on my way out the door to go to a lunch meeting and almost didn't answer the phone. Needless to say that lunch ended up including a celebratory Margarita. Ha!

Also on that day, my husband learned he got the job he'd been pining for for months. It was amazing that we both received such awesome news on the same day, news that changed both our lives.

To celebrate the release of KNIGHT'S CURSE, I'll be giving away this cute little gargoyle charm to three lucky winners who post in comments. They are hand-painted by local artisans in South America and are beautifully detailed. He's not very big, but he's a mighty gargoyle with the power to ward off the same gargoyle curse Chalice has to deal with in the book. So you need one. :)

The charms are strung on a black chord you can wear around your neck, but they're very small (as in tiny, like 1/2 inch tiny). I have mine hanging off my computer monitor.

I hope you'll buy my book and share Chalice's amazing journey. Her next adventure will be out in about six months and that book is called DARKEST KNIGHT. I'll be talking more about it when it gets closer to its publication date.

Don't forget to include your email address with your comment so I can contact you if you win. I'll do the same thing I did last time and have one of my cats draw a name. They really have fun batting around the pieces of paper with the names on them. If my camera doesn't die, I'll be sure to snap a photo. Heehee. :)
