New Year's Giveaway: Last Day! with Stephanie Tyler

>> Monday, January 31, 2011

Stephanie Tyler and I are Twitter & Facebook buddies.  I met Stephanie through my CP, Elisabeth Naughton, and got to know her online.  After reading the first book in her romantic suspense trilogy, HARD TO HOLD, I was hooked.

Stephanie writes strong heroines, uber-hunky heroes and tight suspense. Nothing keeps me glued to the pages like that combination. YUM! 

Like Larissa Ione, Stephanie was generous enough to take time out of her crazy schedule to read and quote my debut novel, FEVER...but even before it was FEVER.

Something I learned along the pathway to publication was that I not only needed quotes from established authors to sell my book to readers off the stand, I needed quotes from established authors to sell my book to editors off my agent's query.

Stephanie spent her time reading and quoting the book even before I'd sold it.  Even before it was shopped.  My agent was thrilled with the quote and the book sold in a two book deal.  The editor who bought my book recently said in an email, "Our publisher is a big believer that [cover quotes] make a huge difference for a debut..."  Just one of the (less important) reasons I'm so grateful to have Stephanie as a friend!

Today, Stephanie has generously offered FIVE of her books up for giveaway -- and the winners get to choose which book they receive: any one of the five books in her romantic suspense trilogies including the three books from her Hard to Hold series: HARD TO HOLD, TO HOT TO HOLD, HOLD ON TIGHT and the two books from her Shadow Forces series: LIE WITH ME or PROMISES IN THE DARK.

How cool is that?

Stephanie also writes erotic romance with co-author Larissa Ione under the pseudonym Sydney Croft.

Up For Win Today:

Thanks so much for hosting the contest and introducing me to some new (to me at least!) authors! It's been fun...and probably a wee bit detrimental to my wallet. Damn that Kindle one click buying!

Joan Swan 6:42 AM  

Oh, yes...the Kindle one click! Ahhhhhh!

The only think that saves me from the Kindle one click, it the Kindle Try It. I'm so dang picky, I try waaaaay more than I buy. :-)
