*** UPDATE — According to the good folks at random.org, the winner of my BIG BROKEN BIRTHDAY BASH BOOK GIVEAWAY is Heidi! Congratulations, Heidi! ***
Happy book birthday to my new romantic thriller, THE BROKEN (Apostles #1, April 29, 2014, Grand Central Forever). To celebrate I’m throwing a party. The great news? YOU get the presents. One lucky reader will win TEN SIGNED BOOKS from my all-time favorite romantic suspense/thriller authors and a handful of up-and-coming romantic suspense authors who I’m honored to call friends.
I had a fantastic time gathering these books for you, attending book signings at my local indie, The Poisoned Pen, and fangirling over Lisa Gardner and Allison Brennan. And of course there was the stalking of Sandra Brown, Laura Griffin, and CJ Lyons. (For you, readers, I did it for you.) These are my auto-buy authors who pen my comfort reads. I know…kind of creepy considering they write about murder and criminal mayhem. But they are part of my happy, and I am forever thankful for the stories they create.
And here they are – their new releases SIGNED for one lucky reader.
With equal joy, I offer books from five author friends who have traveled the looooong journey with me. If you like dark and twisty love stories like THE BROKEN, you’ll probably love books from Carey Baldwin, Anne Marie Becker, Donnell Ann Bell, Rachel Grant, and Elizabeth Heiter. Here’s some of their best, which the winner will receive!
To enter, simply leave a comment below. And since we’re celebrating THE BROKEN’s book birthday, why don’t you tell us what’s on YOUR birthday list? For me, I’d love to have season tickets to the Broadway Series at ASU Gammage.
Contest stuff: ONE winner will be chosen from the comments section below via Random.org. Open only in the U.S. and Canada. Winner will be notified by e-mail. Winner will have 48 hours to respond before a new winner is chosen. Must be 18 years or older to enter. Contest ends May 11, 2014 at 11:59pm EST. Good luck!
Remember, to enter, just leave a comment below telling us what you want for YOUR birthday. And since I write fiction, ANYTHING goes. Can’t wait to hear from you!
Joy & Peace!

Michelle Willms says
I would love books by some of my favorite authors. I’m so behind in collecting my hardbacks, due to all the reviewing I’m doing. I would love some delicious murder mysteries and horror stories. I would also love some gorgeous antique (or new) jewelry and a few days on a beach somewhere, preferably without my children. I know that sounds horrible, but a nice, long break with books and peace and quiet and some icy adult beverages would be pure heaven. michelle_willms at yahoo dot com

Excited to see the release of The Broken – read it and loved it! Can’t wait for the next one in the series. As for what I would want for my birthday….anything? hmm.

GC’s are always nice but surprise books can also be a lot of fun!!

My birthday is already past and my only child and I are not in touch, so it could be a mother’s day gift if I should win. Your taste in reading material is excellent…includes several of my favorite authors. Congrats on your book. It will be on my TBR list. I moved to the PNW 14 years ago and have only been back home once back in 2009. I haven’t seen my BFF Loretta Allen since January 2000. I miss her. Often and a lot. I didn’t get to see her back in 09. I would like to be able to go for a couple of weeks visit to see family and friends. Thanks for the contest. Good luck to all. FYI it might have been better to give 5 people 2 books, or better yet to give 10 people a book. Just a thought.
Karin Anderson says
