Oh, Hey! Another Contest!

Next week I have to blog on the Intrigue Authors blog. I may have mentioned that blogging, like journal-keeping, does not come naturally to me. I do it because I like to touch base with friends and readers, and I do like reading people's comments, although with my graphic design day job and writing at night, I don't get around to answering comments the way I should. (I'm not ignoring y'all, truly. I'm just laconic by nature. I can't help it).

Anyway, all that to say, I signed up to post on the 16th of this month on the Intrigue Authors blog in order to keep my name out there so maybe people will buy my books, but I have no idea what to write about. I think it should probably be book-related, or writing-related. But I'm drawing a blank.

So, we're going to have another impromptu contest. Whee!

Between now and January 15th, please leave your idea for something you'd like to know as a reader--or writer--about writing in general or writing for Intrigue in particular. I may not use the exact idea but you may spark another idea for me. And by posting in the comments, you have a chance to win copies of BOTH of my backlisted books, FORBIDDEN TERRITORY and FORBIDDEN TEMPTATION, just in time for the third in the series, FORBIDDEN TOUCH, which comes out in the middle of February. (But is available for pre-order on and other places, and available RIGHT NOW on, which means you don't have to wait to get your copy of Iris Browning's story).

The drawing will be random, but if I use your idea, I'll mention you in the blog post on Intrigue, and if you have a blog of your own, I'll give you a link. How's that for a deal?

So put your thinking caps on and tell me what you'd like to hear about if you were reading the Intrigue blog.

(Which, really, why aren't you? The link is right up there at the top of this blog entry, and the blog is chock full of great posts from fantastic authors).

I do read the Intrigue Blog and find it very interesting and informative. I think I like those blogs that talk about how writers get story ideas and why they write Intrigue type stories. Along with a little something about what the are writing now.

I like to read the Intrigue line of books. Why does the hero have to always be an ex-something (ex Marine, ex-detective, ex-freedom fighter, etc) Why cant they just be an ordinary citizen put in an extraordinary situation.
