CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED! WINNERS TO BE ANNOUNCED!
So do you want a bit of Dirty whispered into your ear?
So a funny thing happened on the way to… actually I don’t know where I’m going with that because it’s neither funny hilarious nor am I going anywhere just yet BUT I did promise a giveaway.
And oh man, let’s talk audiobooks.
As some of you know, Fish Sticks Friday JUST came out on Audio with Dirty Heart nipping at its heels…so close behind. I’m hoping to get that little ping about DH’s Audible release in the next week or so.
We’ve got the newbie Spencer Goss on FSF and of course, the absolutely fantastic Greg Tremblay on Dirty Heart so I wanted to do something special for the introduction of one series and the finale of another.
Because man, hearing Greg do Dirty Heart is going to rip me apart. Not gonna lie. It’s been more than five years for me. From conception to development and then to that “Fin” at the end of the Dirty Heart, it’s been kind of an odd ride.
I never expected Cole and Jae to see the light of day. Dirty Kiss was pretty much a one-shot deal in my head, even though I’d planned out what would happen… well the why of Ben. That was always planned. Then Dreamspinner Press said yes to publishing it and the ball began rolling.
So much has happened in those six years (and yes, I’m counting from the time I started writing the book). A shit ton of ups and downs… both personal and professional. There’s been some really low points, probably the lowest points I’ve ever had and some unreal, surreal moments like looking out at a room of people as I talk about murdering fictional people.
But one thing has remained constant… I can never find the words strong enough to say “thank you” to everyone who has read my books or how to express my gratitude for all of the hard work done by Dreamspinner’s staff in the creation of my many series. God, I owe Elizabeth, Lynn, Grace and her editing team, lyric, Naomi and everyone else along the way so much of everything.
I am also very thankful for the friendships writing has given me (too many to name) and the sisters I found in Lisa Horan and Mary Calmes. I have had the pleasure of working with Tristan James and now Spencer Goss but most of all, the incredible friendship and partnership I’ve gained in Greg Tremblay.
You see, he IS the voice of Cole McGinnis. Something I never in my wildest dreams ever thought I would hear.
So…let’s celebrate new beginnings and raise a glass to those who ride off into the sunset with their Happily Ever After.
All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on my original blog post about a favourite moment in anyone of my books. Doesn’t have to be the Dirty series or Fish Sticks Friday… just anything you found touched you or made you laugh.
Winners will be drawn on Friday April 1st at 11 am PST. You can only enter once. Void where prohibited. And if you don’t drink coffee, we’ll figure something out.
