Birthday Blog Hop

(Grendal, who is usually my model, is clearly upset she wasn't chosen to wear the necklace)

Welcome to my birthday blog hop! Today I’m celebrating two very important events—my birthday and the finis of my novel Ghost of a Second Chance. To commemorate these milestones I’m offering a coupon for a free download of my novel Stealing Mercy for everyone who:
follows my blog
leaves a comment
and likes my novel on Amazon.
(Yes, I was born on Friday the 13th—you’re not really surprised, are you?)
These three steps also qualify you to win a signed hard copy of Stealing Mercy and a key necklace like the one on the book cover.
Thank you so much for visiting my blog. I hope you enjoy your free download from smashwords! Did you follow, comment and like? If so, here’s your coupon code HH82R. I hope you win my prizes! I hope you visit all my friends and win their prizes, too!

  28. I follow, am commenting now, and I liked your book on AMazon. I already bought your ebook (it is still in my TBR list on my Nook) , so I won't be taking advantage of the freebie, but that is so sweet of you to offer it to your readers :)

    I would LOVE to win a hard copy and the beautiful necklace.

    Happy Belated Birthday and congrats on completing your recent book.
