Winner of AHOW, and More Chances to Win Prizes

All right, it’s Thursday. The randomizer spit out Sara Hurt as the winner of the copy of A Hint of Wicked. Sara, please email me at jackie at jackiebarbosa dot com with your snail mail address, and we’ll get it out to you!

Disappointed that you didn’t win? Well, there’s still a chance to win more prizes.

  • Jennifer Haymore has an interview with me on her blog today and a chance to win a copy of Behind the Red Door.
  • I’m also being interviewed by the lovely Beverley Kendall. If you enter her contest, you could win a copy of my book or a $15 gift certificate to Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or Fictionwise (winner’s choice).
  • Tomorrow, Evangeline Collins, author of Her Ladyship’s Companion, will be here for an interview. She will also be giving away a copy of her book. You’ll be able to enter by commenting through next Monday. I’ll draw a random winner on Tuesday night and post on Tuesday.

Finally, official release day for Behind the Red Door is next Tuesday, but I am hearing rumors that it’s already appearing on bookstore shelves. So, in honor of the first books “in the wild,” I’m offering up a $15 gift certificate to my new favorite online and brick-and-mortar bookseller, Books A Million, to the first person who sends me a photo of Behind the Red Door on a shelf in a real, live bookstore. (I love their coupon deals!)

Also, since I’m currently in Dallas on business, I will give a $40 certificate to the retailer of your choice to anyone who can point me to a bookseller in/around downtown Dallas with copies on the shelves, as I will go there and sign stock tonight. You have to get to me by 5pm today, though, since I’m only here through tomorrow morning.

    Hi Jackie,
    Am so sad that I don’t live in the Dallas area (in fact N. Indiana)!

    Congrats on the release. Just read your interview @ Beverley Kendall’s site, and did not see a place to comment, so came back to your site. I too am a fan of Judith Ivory! My fav book of hers is was The Proposition. I loved that the heroine was nobility, and he was a commoner, and the plant song he makes up for her….brought tears to my eyes. I think I am going to have to go back and read it now 🙂

    I second Booklover that I am not from Dallas I would love to meet you, I am also from Indiana but in the southern part of the state. And currently I am unable to hit the bookstore because I have a house full of rugrats and hubby swiped the minivan. BOoooohoooooo for me.

    Even more sad now because I called my local Borders in Evansville IN and they said they had 1 copy in store and no way to go snap a picture.
