The “Bitter, Sweet” Give Away!!!

Hooray for March! I love the month of March. March is filled with promise.

The air has that spring-like quality to it, and it won’t be long before the crocuses are poking their way out through the ground. Nothing says spring is here than the sight of crocuses.

SO to celebrate spring and the release of Bitter, Sweet in the US this month, (that’s right! Bitter, Sweet will soon be available in the US at the end of March! Pretty exciting. Don’t your think?) I’ve decided to give away an autographed copy of my novel. To enter, simply leave a comment on this post between now and March 31st. And to prove that I’m more sweet than bitter (I know, that was a truly bad one.) if you’re one of those folks who are simply too shy to leave a comment for everyone to see (I know who you all are. I have the emails to prove it), just click on the “contact me” tab, send along your name and I’ll enter you into the draw, as well. See, I really am sweet.

On April 1st if I draw your name I’ll be in touch to get your mailing info if I don’t already have it!

Pretty darn easy!

PS:

If you want to make this fun, you could use Bitter, Sweet in your comment or simply Bitter or Sweet because I’m not fussy! Just so you know though, it won’t increase your chances of winning but it might make for some entertaining comments for the rest of us.

  5. Fun contest–I always knew you were sweet. And HUGE CONGRATULATIONS on having Bitter, Sweet released in the U.S.–nothing bitter in that deal!

    (Okay, my insertion of bitter and sweet were awkward, but it was fun to try and I really do mean my congrats! :))

  6. Congratulations on the US release. That’s definitely a good reason to celebrate and sharing Bitter, Sweet in a giveaway is a great way to do it. I already have a copy so I don’t need to be in the contest but good luck to everyone else. :)

  8. Ok, I’m going to go away and try to think of a clever comment before the 31st. I should manage something by then…
    Congratulations on the release, you must be so excited. If the book is released in the UK, please let us know. I’d like to read it one way or another.

    Trying not to be bitter about the fact that here in northern Alberta it has snowed for the past 3 days, with no end in sight. Pretty sweet you Nova Scotians hit the mid teens in temperatures last weekend… but beware, the snow will have to leave us sometime, and it all travels east! Winter may have something left for you too…

    Would really love to win the book. All I have for a bookstore is the whimpiest little Cole’s you’ve ever seen, and I do not have enough self control to start buying books online (at least in a real store you are cut off when your arms are full). Congrats on the release in the US! If I don’t win I will find a way to get ahold of it up here somehow!

    May the bitter days of winter shine as a sweet reflection through your rear-view mirror as the warm days of spring light up your face on a leisurely drive towards summer.

    Here’s hoping I can win the US copy!!!!! Congratulations!

    Well Laura I have known you pretty much all of our lives. There have been a lot of sweet times and a couple bitter moments. But all in all I’m just glad that we are friends. And I can say ” I knew you when”.

    I’m so happy for you about the release in the States.

  18. Twitter, Tweat? Cool – A book about online stuff!

    Oops – that’s not it.

    So sad that the publisher misspelled the title after all the work you put into your book. You must be devastated.

    Oh wait – I’ve mixed yours up with someone that pubbed with Numbest Publishing! You’re with Nimbus! My Bad.
