Last week, Carrie Lofty, author of Song of Seduction, stopped by for another fabulous visit and while she was here, we decided to give away a copy of Song of Seduction to a lucky winner. In order to enter, everyone had to answer the question: What do you think of historical characters in romance? Are they an unwanted distraction from the romantic fantasy? Now, without further ado, the winner is:
DEB G who said: I love having historical figures pop up in fiction if they are ancillary characters. Done right, having historical figures embedded in a story is like finding the perfect bracelet to accent a new outfit. The bracelet isn’t necessary, but it enhances the overall look (with two kids my days of accessorizing clothing are done, but I can still appreciate the clever inclusion of historical figures on the written page).
While I was at RT in April, I had a chance to chat with Juliet Blackwell, author of A Cast-Off Coven, and last week I finally posted the wonderful interview we had. While she was here, we decided to give away signed copies of the first two Witchcraft Mystery novels – Secondhand Spirits and A Cast-Off Coven – to a lucky winner. In order to enter, everyone had to answer the question: What treasures have you found via vintage stores? Now, without further ado, the winner is:
STELLA (Ex Libris) who said: I have just recently discovered Juliet but can’t wait to read her novels they sound so funny and original! (and the covers look cute too! ;-p)
What treasures have you found via vintage stores? Wonderful findings: vintage jewellery for bargain price and some great elegant dresses, even some designer pieces for even cheaper than non name clothes! I especially love antique jewellery and thinking about its history, everything it must have seen happen!
Jennifer Estep Contest Winners!
I still haven’t heard from Andrea, who won a copy of Web of Lies by Jennifer Estep when she stopped by for another fabulous visit. So I have to redraw a name. In order to enter, everyone had to answer the question: What are some of your favorite fantasy powers and books? Now, without further ado, the new winner is:
LEXIE C. who said: Ahh..hm. Favorite power in books? Does it count if its a manga? I want Yomiko Readman’s power–she has the power over paper. Anything paper based she can turn into a shield, a weapon, an escape route…its why her code name is ‘The Paper’. She’s really awesome! She also has a three story townhome filled with nothing but books. She always carries around a suitcase full of blank pages so that she always has a weapon handy.
I’m so glad there’ll be electrical energy running around in Gin’s series! Its also a favorite of mine…and I was about to make a really bad pun right there about ’spark’ and ‘fun’ and yeah…moving on…XD
Winners! You have one week to send me an email at jackie AT literaryescapism DOT com, otherwise I’ll draw a new name when I post the current contest winners next weekend.
As always, I determined the winners by inputting all the entries into the List Randomizer, scrambling it up a couple of times, and then had the Research Randomizer pick a number.
Congrats to the winners!
