RUM PUNCH REGRETS, my first full length novel, is officially out! So, guess what I’m gonna do? I’M GOING TO GIVE SOMETHING AWAY!!! I love celebrating – and since this is the 2nd book in the ABBY GEORGE SERIES, I’m giving away one of my ABBY GEORGE CHARM BRACELETS – and it is gorgeous! It’s a replica of one featured in the book – it retails for $585. Handcrafted by Sevan Avakian, the amazing talent I collaborated on the Abby George Charm Series with, the ABBY GEORGE CHARM BRACELET is a Sterling Silver , one-of-a-kind, link bracelet with two charms: one is the two-bunch palm attached at the root (cool, right?) set with a Tsavorite and the other is a dainty heart set with a Ruby. I love this bracelet and I love that I get to give one away!
I have been chomping at the bit to post this news for months! We’ve hammered out details and discussed designs and now…I get to tell you all something fun:
I have had the honor of collaborating on a jewelry line inspired by the ABBY GEORGE SERIES with Sevan Avakian of VII A.D.!
One lucky reader will be the recipient of a bracelet like the one shown below – this same bracelet is featured in my full-length novel that is releasing TODAY, Friday May 25th: RUM PUNCH REGRETS!
The bracelet is a beautiful, handcrafted, one-of-a-kind piece with two charms: one being a double palm tree sharing a root base set with a Tsavortie gemstone. The other is a heart charm that has been set with a Ruby. GORGEOUS!!
The best part?
ONE OF YOU WILL BE ITS NEWEST OWNER!!!
Like with the Kindle giveaway, we will be doing a fun contest, so you need to make sure you buy a copy of RUM PUNCH REGRETS and read, read, read! I will be posting questions after the Memorial Day Holiday that will kick off this contest officially!
From Monday May 28th until Wednesday July 4th you will have a chance to ENTER TO WIN!!
Check back here this weekend for details and please take the time to check out the VII A.D. website and their jewelry. I’ll be posting more pictures of our other charms over the holiday weekend for you to see. For more information, feel free to drop me a line firstname.lastname@example.org or send a note to VII A.D email@example.com.
VII A.D. has made it their mission to bring high-quality pieces into the market for the cool, cutting-edge individual who flaunts their independence. I love that it is a family-owned and operated business, as Barb Avakian is co-founder with her husband Sevan – a brilliant pairing, if I do say!
This Friday, RUM PUNCH REGRETS is being released on eBook and as print-on-demand! You’ll be able to find it on Amazon, Barnes and Noble (they have it for pre-sale, too!), iTunes, Kobo…soo many ways to read my fun lil’ book!
Today, I was a guest on Alexis Walker’s Happily Ever After Thoughts Blog – we did a fun interview and she’s arranged for a giveaway with one of my books. I think you may have ’til Wednesday to enter, so stop by her blog and do it!
Wednesday I’m doing a guest post on the Chick Lit Writers of the World blog, part of the RWA chapter I’m a member of. I’ll make sure to post the link once it’s up and running. I love writing at this blog for my fellow writers and sharing my stories or experiences among such an amazing and talented group of writers!
Friday is the big release (did I mention my book? RUM PUNCH REGRETS? Yes, that’s the one.) and along with it…a big announcement! There will be a giveaway and I have been bursting at the seams to share this with you for months. I can finally, FINALLY, tell you about it on Friday! All I can say is that if you buy the book and enter, you won’t be disappointed!!
There will be more giveaways on Goodreads and other fun contests, so please check back often and get your friends to join my email list here so they can take part, too.
Have a good week everyone and if you’re on vacation and pounding some rum punch? Take two aspirin and drink LOTS of water.
TRUST ME ON THIS ONE 😉
My world of entertainment and imagination has been rocked not once, but twice in the last few days. First with the death of Beastie Boy Adam Yauch (aka MCA) and now with the death of Maurice Sendak.
RIP gentlemen – you both made growing up fun for this girl.
