In all the drama of the week, I forgot to announce winners of last week’s giveaway.   First up are the winners of the print version of Caroline Linden’s free book short.   You can still download the PDF from this link..   Caroline Linden’s latest release”For Your Arms Only” will be out next Tuesday.

Caroline Linden is one of my favorite new authors. I suppose I should be honorable and bow out so someone can try her for the first time. But I’m not all that honorable, and I would love a paper copy.

I’d love a chance to try a new author. Please enter me into the drawing for a paper copy.

If the drawing is still open, I too would love a paper copy (I wanted to be a paleontologist when I was little, so perhaps that’s why I don’t mind being a technological dinosaur).

I hardly ever read ebooks, so count me in for paper. I like to read old school ;)

Also, I promised to giveaway my Harlequin Vintage Address Books (assuming that those that entered still want them). The two winners are:

For me – without question – the best debut book is Broken Wing by Judith James. It’s not only the best debut I’ve ever read, it holds the numero uno spot on my all time favourite of any book list.

I think it’s quite telling that a number of those books mentioned are not actually debut novels after all (The Spymaster’s Lady and Devil’s Bride, for instance). The "breakthrough novel’ is probably more important in establishing an author’s reputation. Sometimes, the debut novel is the breakthrough, but not always. And in those cases where it isn’t, the earlier novels are often best forgotten. I recently bought a re-released early Stephanie Laurens and it is truly dire.

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

    Thanks. I’ve never read this author. Do I need to hit the contact icon above or email you my address?

    Same question as Kim, above.

    Yesterday my husband and I went to Chicago to visit a dying friend (he’s 92 but a wonderful man, and we had kind of hoped he’d go on forever) and found out of Tuesday that my 24 y.o. son needs open heart surgery. Thanks for providing even a little bit of light in what has been a very dark week.

    Thanks Jane, I’m looking forward to reading it.

    @Susan/DC–So sorry about your son. Hope he comes through his surgery 100% back to health.
