An Unseemly Giveaway!


Ready for a little “Unseemly” giveaway?

UnseemlyAmbition smallI’m ready celebrate the recent release of the new Concordia Wells mystery, Unseemly Ambition, and I want you to party along with me!

Prizes: I’ll be giving away ebooks, a signed paperback, promo goodies (Post-It pads, candy tins), and even the opportunity for folks to collaborate with me to name a character or pick a distinctive trait for a character in book #4, Unseemly Haste! I’ll be randomly drawing twelve winners overall. If any of the winners live outside the United States or Canada, I’ll substitute a gift card to Amazon because of the prohibitive postage for certain items.

When: between now and January 31, 2015. I’ll announce winners on February 6, 2015.

How to get your name in the drawings (choose from any or all of these): 

1. subscribe to my newsletter (those who have already subscribed will have their names automatically entered);

2. write a review on Amazon or BN for any of my books, then send me the link either in an email:, or by posting it here in the comments section (your name will be entered TWICE for each review!). If you’ve already left me a review in the past, drop me a line to confirm that you want me to enter your name in the giveaway, again either in the comments or email;

3. send me a pic of yourself with any of my books (on your e-reader or in print)…or, if you feel camera-shy, send me a pic of one of my books “in the wild.” I’d love to see where Concordia has traveled to! I’ll post them on my Unseemly Readers page;

4. leave a comment on any post I write (including any guest posts, which I’ll be sure to announce).

Remember, your name can be entered more than once, so participating in multiple ways will increase your chances of winning, and it helps me out enormously! I am, as ever, so grateful for your support, and I love connecting with you all.

Until next time,


P.S. – If you have the chance, check out today’s post at Misterio Press: “The Double-Edged Sword of Ambition.” Psychologist-turned-mystery-novelist Kassandra Lamb is talking about the psychological advantages and pitfalls of ambition, to go along with the release of my new Concordia Wells novel! Thanks, Kass!

    Oh, I love games. I’ve read the first Concordia book, but I can’t remember if I’ve left a review or not. I’ll have to swing on over the Amazon and see. I’ll see if I can get a picture with your book on my Kindle. Let’s see, what else? Newsletter – check. Leave a comment – check.

    Okay. I’ve covered most of my bases.
