Win a PRINT copy of SEDUCTION GAME — Today only on Goodreads

Just a quick and dirty update to let you know TWO things.

1. Berkley is doing a giveaway of 15 **PRINT** copies of Seduction Game (I-Team #7) on Goodreads. If you’ve got a Goodreads account, click here to enter. I didn’t know about the drawing until I saw a tweet about it, or I would have let you know sooner. Deadline to enter is TODAY.

2. The print edition of Nick and Holly’s story will be out on January 5, not in March. It got bumped up, apparently. Those of you who’ve been waiting for the paperback got two whole months cut off your wait time. Surprise! It was a surprise to me, too.

The ebook edition and audiobook editions are available at these retailers:

Amazon UK
Amazon AU
Amazon CA
Audible (audiobook)

Okay, I have three things to share.

3. Anyone who wants to experience Dead By Midnight: An I-Team Christmas in real time should start reading the story at 16:10  — that’s 4:10 PM — on Dec. 19. That’s the day the story takes place, and, yes, that’s tomorrow. The story is written in real time, so you can follow along. Just make sure you finish BY MIDNIGHT!

So far enthusiasm for this story has been overwhelming. It’s been called “hands down the best holiday read of the season” and “the best romantic suspense of 2015,” which is huge for me, given that it’s the last I-Team story, at least for now.

Don’t miss out on the fun! Join me tomorrow for a live tweet real-time reading of the story.

Dead by Midnight is available in paperback and ebook.

Amazon UK
Amazon AU
Amazon CA

I hope everyone’s holiday season has been bright so far. Christmas is just around the corner!
