Pocket After Dark

Have you guys heard about the new site Pocket has set up for readers of romance and urban fantasy?  It's wonderful!

You simply set up a profile to join [free -- absolutely free!] and then you have access to free excerpts of books by Pocket authors, free reads online, message boards, contests... all sorts of things that make this a great destination spot for readers. 

I just updated my profile on there today and I'll do my best to check in at least weekly -- if you're interested in a discussion about any of my books, I'm more than happy to join in!

Try it -- I think you'll really like it! 

In fact, to give you some extra encouragement to visit the site and join, how about we do a little contest?  I have a couple of promo giveaway items left over from attending RomCom and RWA. 

All you have to do to enter the drawing for the Promo Pack is to visit PocketAfterDark, register yourself there and leave a comment here with your PocketAfterDark profile name -- and you'll be entered for the drawing!  Make sure in your comment you leave me an email address so I have a way to contact the winner!!

Let's give everyone some time...  I'll do the drawing next week -- Wednesday, August 18. 

I look forward to hearing from all of you!!

Until next time ~
