WINNERS of the Berkley Giveaway

We were so thrilled with the response to the giveaway that we are giving away more than 17 books. In fact, we are giving away 39 titles to 13 people. Cindy offered up an additional number of ARCs and I scrounged around and found some June titles. I hope the winners will be pleasantly surprised. We made sure that everyone got at least one book that they had requested.   

Next week we actually have another awesome giveaway featuring ACE/ROC books (aka Anne Bishop, Ann Aguirre, Rob Thurman, and the like).   We would ask if you won this time to give others a chance next week.   It’s good karma, promise.

She self publishes NA and contemporaries (and publishes with Berkley and Montlake) and spends her downtime reading romances and writing about them. Her TBR pile is much larger than the one shown in the picture and not as pretty. You can reach Jane by email at jane @ dearauthor dot com

    ACE/Roc? I am SO there next week!! This is a really terrific idea. I promise to buy several of these books when they come out — reading through the descriptions and looking at the different covers really piqued my interest in certain titles. So giving away the ARCs is generating sales.

    NO!!! I saw “Christine M” in the winners list and thought my once-in-a-blue-moon finally hit and that I’d won. Guess I have to go buy the ones that caught my eye :-)
