Time for a GIVEAWAY!

EDIT: I clearly underestimated how many people are out there just downloading free ebooks without much promotion on my part. I've just about made my June 19th goal, and there's still more than two weeks to go! So, I've decided to increase the overall goal to actually make it a challenge. I've also increased the number of winners, and added another way to gain entries!

My novel, Sorry's Not Enough, has been published! But that doesn't mean I want you to stop reading my free short story collection. No way! This morning I just passed 3,000 free downloads of Consenting Adults on Amazon.
Thank you to all who have downloaded it so far! If you enjoyed it, I hope you'll take a moment to leave a review on Goodreads or Amazon or wherever you downloaded it from. Now, about that giveaway...

I've decided that once Consenting Adults reaches 6,000 15,000 free downloads on Amazon, I'll give away a few prizes! There are three prizes:

  • A $15 gift card to Amazon or the bookseller of your choice, plus a digital copy of my novel, Sorry's Not Enough (2 winners!)
  • A $10 gift card to Amazon or the bookseller of your choice, plus a digital copy of SNE (2 winners!)
  • A digital copy of SNE (5 winners!)
The goal is to reach 6,000 15,000 Amazon downloads by midnight, June 19, 2013, which is three weeks from today. So that's roughly 615 downloads a day. Easy, right? I think so, too! If we reach the goal sooner, perhaps I can sweeten the pot with additional prizes....

So, how do you enter? The only requirement for entry is to comment on this post (please use the Rafflecopter widget to enter) but you can earn additional entries by following on social media and tweeting about the giveaway, and I hope you will.

To entice you a little more, here's some more info about Consenting Adults, the free book we want people to download.
This collection of five short stories is a literary quickie that looks at romantic relationships in various forms, from the tame to the erotic.

The title story, "Consenting Adults", explores the eroticism of an enthusiastic "Yes!" between lovers.

"The Haricot Verts" peeks in on a tense moment between a couple where she can't seem to say what's on her mind.

"The Reluctant Exhibitionist" follows a young couple learning to open up and share their fantasies without embarrassment.

"The Adventures of Sasquatch" is the story of a single mom - and her big feet - reclaiming her inner princess.

"Between the Lines" shows what happens long-hidden desires sizzle to the surface between two near-strangers.
And some info about Sorry's Not Enough, the book you can win:
Charlotte learned at an early age that people – including family – are capable of hurting you so bad "sorry” will never be enough. The obvious solution is not to let anyone close enough to do any damage, and she's doing just fine with that until a summer writing workshop brings Steven into her life. Seemingly immune to Charlotte's Stay the Hell Away from Me pheromones, he uses his wit and good looks – or what Charlotte would call his obnoxious ego and his stupid good looks – to win her over. The unexpected summer romance screeches to a halt when Steven's job creates an ethical dilemma for the couple. Sorry doesn't begin to cover the hurt feelings.

Despite the secrets Charlotte's keeping and the renewed passion with which she pushes him away, Steven can't let her go. And so the cycle of their relationship begins. Over the course of four years they share moments as passionate lovers, periods of warm friendship, as well as months of barely-civil tension.

When no amount of time or distance, and no number of men, can make her forget the comfort of Steven's arms, Charlotte must dig into her painful past and face the man whose betrayal destroyed her capacity for trust to begin with. And by the time she finds the courage to do so, will “sorry” be enough to get Steven back?

Since you only win if the Consenting Adults is downloaded, please share with your friends! Tell your work colleagues, your siblings, maybe even your parents if they're cool like that. Leave a review. Paint it on your chest. Get a tattoo. Just kidding, don't do that.

Are you ready? Get set... GO!!!
