Come celebrate with me!

My new medieval romance, Loving Lucianna, is being published this Saturday! I'm so excited, guess what I did to celebrate? Yep, you guessed it! (Well, you did if you know me very well. ;-) ) I bought myself a box of See's chocolate. Of course, I can't eat any of it until Saturday when the book goes live--I had the sale's clerk wrap the box in paper so I wouldn't be tempted, and so far I've been a good girl. (I didn't say it was easy!)

(See? Wrapped in paper to keep me out, just as I said!)

You know what makes celebrating even more fun? Celebrating with lots and lots of friends! So I'd like to celebrate with you by holding a giveaway. The prizes? A $20 See's gift card so you can buy your very own box of chocolate, and an autographed copy of Loving Lucianna.

I'm afraid I will have to limit this giveaway to participants in the USA because of shipping charges for both the book and the chocolate.

There are three ways to enter.

First, everyone gets a FREE entry!

If you'd like additional entries, help me spread the word about my Loving Lucianna Launch Party on Facebook on October 15 by tweeting about it. You can tweet about the launch party once a day.

And if you actually come to my Loving Lucianna Launch Party on October 15, you can earn 5 extra entries! We'll be playing games and giving away over 20 books as prizes! (Don't forget to claim your extra entries on Rafflecopter, though.)

Enter via the Rafflecopter form below. I'll draw the winner's name on October 16.

Thanks, Mel! Don't worry, I never forget the cats...they wouldn't let me! LOL!

I love your books, Joyce. A friend (my knight) reminded me I should be writing medieval. I told him I would when I got enough money to go over and visit the castle I'm setting it in...sigh. That'll be a long time, I'm thinking. I'll have to remember the ones I've already seen. You and I should go sometime. Until then I read your books...;o)

Joyce DiPastena said...

Thank you, Heidi! I haven't yet gotten to visit a castle, and I've written 5 medieval novels and two short stories! If you want to write a medieval, go for it. These days with what you can find on the internet, it's almost like being there. (Still, I hope to actually be there one day!0
