Thanks so much to everyone who entered! If you want another go, we’ll be doing this again in December, when Fell the Angels drops. 🙂
This month The God Collector (Amazon, B&N) officially goes on sale, and yes, I’m excited! This is a book I’ve been wanting to write for years and years–my fond tribute to urban fantasy, romance, museums, and ancient Egypt. And to celebrate, I’ve assembled some nifty prize packs for a giveaway!
Here’s how it works. Leave a comment here, on this post, telling me what your favorite historical period or event is and why it’s your favorite. It doesn’t have to be ancient, either; if you have a burning passion for the 1990s, say so. That’s all you have to do. One entry per person, please!
The contest closes at 11:59 PM CST on March 10, 2015, so make sure you have your entries in by then. Once it closes, I’ll pick three winners by using a random number generator to select three from the list of entries. I’ll post the winners here on the blog and on my Facebook, and you can e-mail me to claim your prizes.
And what are the prizes? Well …
Preorder for The God Collector is available as of February 8th. You can find it on Samhain’s site here, and currently both editions are at a reduced price–$4.55 for the ebook and $11.20 for the trade paperback.
This is a story about mummies, magic, and two people struggling to reconcile the distant past with the very dangerous present. There’s also robberies, golems, ghosts, a bit of sneaky business with an ancient inscription, and a rather unromantic memory of Cleopatra.
And then there’s the shabtis. I’m looking forward to letting you all meet them. 😀
The cover of my first romance novel–well, urban-fantasy-with-romance-elements novel, really–has been a bit of a running joke in my phone conversations with family over the last few months. After only one prior publication, the idea of choosing cover art is still a little foreign to me, and cover art depicting main characters even moreso. Would there be mullets? Was that still a thing in covers? I filled out the forms with my requests and thoughts for the cover art, but wasn’t sure what to expect.
Well. Today I got the final version of the cover art for The God Collector, and there’s nary a mullet to be seen. Am I fine with that? Yes. Do I love it?
Yes. Yes, I do.
The red and gold especially made me very happy. The importance of color and warmth are recurring themes in The God Collector, and as in the book, the liveliness of Theodora contrasts brightly against the dreamlike world of snow and shadows. I think I owe Samhain’s art department a big, big cake.
