Odds and Ends

It’s only a few weeks till the release of His Mistletoe Bride, and I’ve got some fun stuff going on leading up to the release.  Are you on Pinterest?  If you are, please check out my board for His Mistletoe Bride.  It’s a chapter by chapter breakdown of the book, with quotes and pictures to illustrate the story.  I had a great time putting it together and I think you’ll enjoy it.  You might also want to check out my Cupcakes and Cakes board and my Regency Era Clothing board.  They’ve got some great pictures and the Cupcake board includes links to some wonderful recipes.

On my facebook page I’m running two contests.  The first is an amazing iPad contest, which also includes book giveaways by Eloisa James, Jane Porter, Elizabeth Hoyt, and Julia London.  What a lineup!  You can enter the iPad contest here.

My other facebook contest is to win an advanced reading copy of His Mistletoe Bride.  Just click here to enter.

Oh, and while you’re on my facebook page, don’t forget to check out my Vanessa’s Vixens page.  This is my new street team, a great group of readers who are hanging out with me and helping to spread the word about my books.  There will be swag!

Finally, the winner of Elyssa Patrick’s new book is Ann S.  Congratulations!  Thanks to everyone for stopping by my blog.  My guest author tomorrow is historical romance writer Tina Gabrielle.  Be sure to drop in to visit!

Join My New Street Team, VANESSA’S VIXENS!

Hey, all!  I’m starting a street team and I’d love you to join.  Vanessa’s Vixens will help me spread the word about my upcoming releases by handing out bookmarks at local bookstores, libraries, bookclubs, and to their romance loving friends.  In return, I’ll be giving you special swag, giveaways, and you’ll always be the first to hear my latest news.

I’m also going to be setting up a special Vixens facebook page where we can chat about books, our families, movies…whatever we feel like talking about.  Sounds like fun, right?  Hop on over to my facebook page to get all the details and to sign up.  I’d love to see you there!
