HALLOWED CIRCLE & CONTEST

So...it's that day. Release day. I'm so excited!!!!

There's no big party planned, but I feel good about it. Hallowed Circle was just so much fun to write. That doesn't mean it wasn't work, writing is always work, just sometimes doing the work is really enjoyable. Or maybe, as one of the panel titles/suggestions going around for MARCON indicates, All Writers are Sadomasochists. :-)


I dedicated HALLOWED CIRCLE to my son, Logan. He just got his driver's license. I think, in spite of the snow, I'll let him drive me out to some lunch to celebrate. (The plows have cleared the roads.)

AND

How about, since I'm feeling celebratory, let's see if anyone out there reads this little ol' blog of mine. Let's have a contest. (Feel free to let others know via FB/twitter, etc.)

One condition: You have a shipping address in the USA.
One three-part rule: Leave me a reply, tell me who your favorite VICIOUS CIRCLE character was and why.

I'll give it a week--until noon EST on Tuesday January 5th. I'll take all the entries and copy the names, pull one at random, and post it by 2 or 3 pm. Then, you'll have to check back and see if you've won. (You'll have to email me your address.) If the winner doesn't respond within 48 hours, I'll pick a new random winner who'll have the same 48 hours, etc. If those terms sound good to you, please enter!

I loved Persepone:) She is such an awesome character. Someone who isn't in your face rude and obnoxious but a caring, easy to like person, which is a relief in the genre. I would love to have her as a friend!

Can't wait to read Hallowed Circle!!!

tell me who your favorite VICIOUS CIRCLE character was and why.

Well,uh,...I haven't been able to read Vicious Circle yet.In my defense,lol,I live out in the middle of the boondocks so going to a book store is kinda hard,and purchasing things on line is not an option for me seeing as I have no credit card. :( The world is against me.LOL.But I will get it someday and when I do I will come back and answer this question. Major congrats on the release!And to your son for getting his license. I'll celebrate your books release with a tacco.LOL.

Congratulations on your second release, i love the first book and cannot wait to read the second one :)

My favorite character in Vicious Circle is Johnny. Everything he says is funny ( his innuendos :P ) and he really care about Persephone.

Congrats!

I really like Johnny because he isn't the typical love interest. That immediately drew me to him.

Sara M said...

My favorite character is Johnny. He meshed very well with my sense of humor. :)

Congrats on the release!!

My favorite character was Johnny. He just really appealed to me.

Linda Robertson said...

Wow. Johnny's winning the race!! Thanks for participating to all of you so far.

Johnny - I have the book already, but wanted to throw in my two cents. Runner-up - Nana.

Congratulations! I'm about ready to read Hollowed Circle. Just got done re-reading Vicious Circle and still loved it! Just have to say that Johnny was my favorite character, his tattoo's seem interesting and he's such a mystery that I want to unravel.. Can't wait for the next books!

sadieloree said...

Menessos. Hands down. For as much as I adore Johnny and think Persephone would be a truly fantastic friend, I have an undeniable draw to the tall, handsome and rich. (Shallow much? yes.) The forbidden and dangerous has always drawn me in, like a curious cat sure to get my tail stepped on.
Then again, having someone look at you and think "lunch" may not create the most desirable feelings. lol

salamanderstales said...

Nana. Fuzzy slippers and a bad attitude...she's exactly who I'm gonna be when I get to be her age!

Passionsong said...

Menossos is my favorite character because he is not absolutely good or absolutely evil. He has room to grow and learn (hopefully from his last experience with Persephone) and when he does, he will be the perfect foil for her. I never really liked romance that is so easily won... :) passionsong07@yahoo.com

I went to 4 bookstores looking for Hallowed Circle on Tuesday. One was sold out already, one had their shipment delayed, and two didn't have it yet. :( Had to put in a reserve at B&N.

My favorite was Beverly. I loved that she was so tough in handeling what happened to her mom, living with the psycho, and letting Seph get close to her.

I'm so excited to read the second one.

Jen Dempsey said...

Johnny's my favorite character. He's incredibly entertaining to read!

Congrats on the new book! :-)

Linda Robertson said...

Again, thanks to everyone participating so far! Johnny's still ahead, if we're keeping score. :-)

Thuyvu said...
