Holiday Giveaway


Happy Tuesday evening, folks.

  Well, we’re well into the holiday season here in the Piedmont region of the Carolinas, and since I started this blog back in May lots has happened. The Draculata Nest was re-issued with a new cover. The Dragon of Doughton Park, second in the Red Wolf series, was published. We’ve read and reviewed books, participated in blog tours, posted character profiles, and expressed our opinions on subjects mundane and insane.

   Looking back, blogging was never something I particularly wanted to do. But I was advised early on that it was something I would need to do as a writer in order to sell books, no matter how good the books might be. So I bit the bullet, learned the rudiments of Google’s Blogger, and started posting. I got all of nine hits my first post.

   Over the summer, I developed further reservations about my blogging chore. My commitment to a weekly post consumed much of my creative energy, and it began to interfere with my regular writing. Plus, it became a forum for broken promises as I regularly lied about the release date of my second novel, which kept having to be postponed for one reason or another.

   But along the way, I picked up a follower or two. I got a nice comment here and there on a post. I met other bloggers and a few fans who have provided much appreciated support. And I’ve been gratified to watch as the number of weekly hits doubled, tripled, and quadrupled. It’s high time I expressed my appreciation in more than just words.
  It’s time for a…
 
Holiday Giveaway!
   Starting this week through January 6th, I’ll give away an ebook each week (either The Draculata Nest or The Dragon of Doughton Park) in whatever format the winner requests.
