After weeks of not having anything to write about–or perhaps it was just that nothing interested me enough to inspire me to write–I now seem to be drowning in topics.  Therefore, this will either be a long entry or a lot of short ones!

First, tomorrow is the long-awaited release date of my novella, Unwilling Angel.  Woo-hoo!  It’s a Christmas story–or really, it just takes place at Christmas, the holiday doesn’t play a big part in the story–and I’m grateful to Red Rose Publishing for granting my wish for a December release.  Isn’t it nice when publishers listen to their authors?

So, Unwilling Angel comes out in e-book tomorrow and in the spirit of the season–and the story–I’m giving away a couple of free copies as part of the prizes in two contests I’m participating in.  If you’d like a chance to win one of those copies, all you have to do is enter the contests.  There’s no purchase necessary and in the first one, the one at Cata Romance, which has already started, you don’t have to do anything except register.  The second one at Infinite Worlds of Fantasy requires you to answer a question, but it’s an easy question about my book, Snow Shadows, and the answer can be found on a number of sites, including this blog.  Plus, they’ll supply you with the link to my website where the answer can be found.

Since Cata is already up and running, I’ll focus on that one right now and when the other one starts, I think on December 15th, I’ll post all the info on it.  Okay, so here’s what Cata sent to the authors to announce the contest:

Oh, and hey, did you notice, I finally learned how to put my book covers in my sidebar?  Turns out my computer idiocy was the problem and I apologize to WordPress for all the nasy thoughts I was thinking about them! 

I’ve taken the stick-it thingie off of the post I had up with the cover of Snow Shadows and now I need to put the contest URL and the gorgeous picture from Cata up there. 

Isn’t technology an amazing thing?  Well, okay, most of the time it is, when its not kicking my butt and making me feel like a moron!
