Get Your (cheap) Books here!

I don't know about you, but I'm tired of winter. It might have something to do with the fact that my down-filled coat decided to explode this morning, leaving me looking feathered (sans tar). Goose down does little to enhance an all-black outfit, FYI.

So, to chase away those winter blahs, I've got a little ray of good news. Three Cara Lockwood titles have just been re-released in cheaper, mass market paperback editions. I Do (But I Don't), Every Demon Has His Day and Pink Slip Party make their re-debuts (I just made up that word) this week in a book store near you. Pink Slip Has this lovely new cover (see right), and the others have their same old covers, but an even better price: $5.99. You can't beat that, folks.

So, if you've been always meaning to read "those other" Cara Lockwood books, well now is your chance to do so on the cheap. I mean $5.99? That's like half a movie ticket. And like 1/100th of a new down coat, which I will no doubt have to buy, seeing as how I live in Chicago, and it can snow here pretty much til June.

Ahem. But, my point was, go buy some books! And so I don't look completely like the shameless self-promoter, I'm going to do something generous now. I'm going to extend the contest deadline for those five lucky winners who get to pick ANY single book from my backlist (that's eight glorious choices people!). Said winners get to pick their books, I sign them and send them to you. Boom! Free signed book. Of course, I can't promise it'll even fetch $5.99 on Ebay, but you at least have a nice, personalized signed book and when was the last time Danielle Steele did that for you? Exactly.

So, if you haven't already, email me at, and I'll enter you in the drawing on March 1, 2010.

Happy Post Holidays!

Ah, the sound of James Brown blaring at Starbucks. It must be post-holiday time! The Christmas tunes are off, and now we're back to some odd ecclectic mix of James Brown, the Beatles and some Irish Rock Indie band I've never heard of. It's good to be back!

If you're not so happy that the Christmas music is gone or if you're still fuming about that package of coal-colored Fruit of the Loom that Santa brought you, then fear not. I've got a little post-holiday contest to lift your spirits.

Several of my books are being re-released this month in mass market paperback (I Do (But I Don't), Pink Slip Party and Every Demon Has His Day). In honor of the re-release, I'll be giving away five titles from my back list - winner's choice! You can have one of the three new re-releases, or you could pick one of the Bard Books, or you could just spin the book wheel and let me decide. In any case, you'll get an autographed copy of a Cara Lockwood masterpiece. Okay, well, if not quite a masterpiece, then a piece. Of something.


But, hey, it's a free book. Signed. By moi. You could get worse things. Like a pair of underwear.

So, just shot me an email at to enter the January Book Giveaway and I'll pick five winners on February 1.

And remember, if you don't win, you can always snag a copy of one of the re-releases. They're only $5.99! That's what I call a sweet deal.

(Actually, I secretly call it my "retire in Hawaii" deal. But with the amount of money in that account, I can't actually retire at the moment. Given the hits my 401K have taken this year, I might have to call it my "Retire to Work as Wal-Mart Greeter fund" but I digress.

Email me! Enter the contest. Win a signed book!
