Release Day!!! And a Contest!!

Well, today's the big day--Bound by Steel is now available. Unfortunately, the Canadian federal election and the tryptophan in last night's turkey have conspired to steal all my verve. Even if I hadn't overindulged in the ubiquitous bird and all its assorted accompaniments, I'm pretty sure the notion of braving the weather today so I can exercise my democratic responsibilities would have me equally nauseous. Bluh.

Methinks perhaps when I am done eenie-meenie-miney-moeing at the polls, I will bundle up with a blankie and some flavored coffee and partake in my usual release day tradition: read the book, surf yon webs, post an excerpt and give away a book or two.

I expect that y'all will be acquiring this beauty before doing anything as unimportant as voting for whichever political tool you hate marginally less than the others. (And I hear the economy is bouncing back, so you all got no excuse now to not buy it.) Heck, at least with a book, there's a chance you won't feel like you've wasted your time, right? I mean, if I want to participate in a giant wank-job, well, I'll pick one that isn't political, and has a hope in hell of getting me excited. :D

For all of you who still fear impending economic disaster and are looking to save yourself five bucks and change, you can head on over to Loving Venus- Loving Mars for a chance to win a copy for nothing. And even if you aren't the contest type, you can still pop in and read the hot girl on girl excerpt.



Now, to vote. One potato, two potato...

I know, what's up with that? What the hell kind of fan am I? It must be that the Twitter pods sucked up all my time and brain cells.

I hear ya, Laughingwolf. But you sticklers for dead tree books will have to wait another 10 months. Crossing Swords will be out in print third week of January, though. :D

Congratulations on the release, Kirsten! Here's wishing you many, many sales!

kirsten saell said...

I can so cuddle my laptop, Laughingwolf! It's all warm and tingly, too... :D

Thanks Portia! This book is really dear to me because it's just the kind of menage I love. Two women, one man, and a genuine three-person romance. :D

Hi Kirsten! First time here at your blog! Love fantasy romances!!! (And Historicals and Paranormals among others!) This is going to be great! Would love to be in the contest!!

I often get ebooks then they become keepers and I want prints too, LOL. But I love my ebookwise reader and always have my reader full of books to read! I never run out of anything to read (just when the battery dies, LOL). So I won't have to wait a year for prints, instant gratification with ebooks, LOL.
