Jackie Kessler Contest
I had the amazing opportunity to talk with Jackie Kessler at RT this year and recently posted the conversation we had. To celebrate the release of Shades of Gray, Jackie was sweet enough to give away a copy of Black and White, the first novel in the Icarus Project series, to one lucky winner. In order to enter, everyone had to answer a question, but since I totally screwed it up, I’m going to skip adding it to the announcement. Now, without further ado, the winner is: THOMAS!
Carrie Lofty Contest
Sadly, I have yet to hear back from my Carrie Lofty winner. So that means someone else gets a chance a great new novel. While Carrie 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:
REBECCA B who said: it depends upon how familiar with the period I am. I’m a medievalist by training, so early 19th century Austria is *pretty* (totally) unfamiliar to me, and historical figures probably wouldn’t be a distraction. (actually, musicians would be fun!) But I’m constantly distracted by appearances of historical figures in medieval historical fiction. I can’t think of any specific examples right now, but having a deus ex machina with a medieval king always frustrates me. It’s probably why I don’t read much medieval fiction….
Also, this book looks fantastic! I love stories revolving around music. Describing music in the written word is such a challenge!
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.
