But first! It’s December and that means bloggers are gathering the year’s best of the best. One of my favorite Review Blogs, PARANORMAL HAVEN, is currently putting together their list for the Best of 2012. So, if you think he deserves it, maybe you could pay them a visit and put Lucas’s name on the list somewhere (or everywhere) Best Book, Best Hero, Best Series … Kathryn wouldn’t mind getting a hit as best Heroine, and yours truly wouldn’t object to best author, either! 😉

DEADLINE for nominations is December 7th!!

HERE’S THE LINK if you’re interested.
And now for the contest! As I said before, this one will be targeted at READERS. I’m going to ask a question from RAJMUND (my blue-eyed vamp!) and if you haven’t read the books, you probably won’t know the answer … which means no contest entry for you! 🙂

Okay, here’s how it works. I have a very limited number of PRINT copies of the e-novella BETRAYED. This is a LIMITED EDITION run, not for sale anywhere, nor will it be offered for sale anywhere. This limited run was for promotional purposes only, and my editor gave me a few to use however I wanted. So, of course, I want to give them to YOU, my loyal readers.
For purposes of the contest, I’ll be giving away FIVE autographed copies, including a special first prize. All winners will be drawn at random from the pool of qualifying entries.
Entry guidelines are as follows:
–ALL entries MUST have the words “RAJMUND Contest” in the subject line. If you don’t, your entry will not be counted.

–ALL entries must be sent via email to
–The deadline for receipt of all entries is Midnight, 23 DECEMBER 2012
–The winners will be announced in my usual blog post on 31 DECEMBER 2012 (Happy New Year!)
–Entries MUST have a valid email address, so I can contact you if you win.
–The CORRECT answer to the following question MUST be contained in the BODY of the email.
–QUESTION: When Rajmund meets Kristof for the first time and is subsequently turned Vampire, he is in a bar with friends. Among those friends is a Polish woman whom Raj is hustling, and who is killed by Kristof that same evening. What is her name?
–PRIZES: Drawn at random from the qualifying entries, decision of the judges is FINAL.
—-One (1) First Place Prize of an autographed copy of the Limited Edition BETRAYED, plus $30 Amazon Gift Card.
—-Four (4) Second Place Prizes of an autographed copy of the Limited Edition BETRAYED
And that’s the contest! Remember, you must observe all of the guidelines above to qualify.
In other news, I posted a couple of reviews on GoodReads this week, including my review of Shadow’s Claim, the first book of Kresley Cole’s new IAD spin-off, The Dacians.
And for those interested in such things, I did indeed “win” NaNoWriMo again this year, writing 50K words in 30 days. Some years, the words flow, some years they don’t. This was one of the latter kind, and it was a brutal 30 days! But it’s done, it’s over and I’m on to other exciting stuff. Some of which I’m going to get to right now.
So, see you all next week. I look forward to receiving your contest entries! 🙂


  1. Congartulations on winning NaNoWriMo again!! The other authors must cringe when they see you coming. LOL
    Thank you for another wonderful contest…and I will be greedy and say that I hope I win a copy of Betrayed to complete my printed library of Vampires in America. <3

    1. Hi Dot,

      The NaNo project was something new … werewolves and demons. But Aden is on the horizon!

  2. I was thinking about all your Books in the Vampires in American series….Each head honcho Vampire or the boys as i like to call them are special and so different…which is why the series has been such a pleasure for me to read .. Jabril…of course is such a nasty Male chauvinist Pig and really enjoyed disliking him intensely ….Gives a bad name to the other Vampires Guys….But then he got what he deserved……lucky us ….DB you make me want to write ( not going to happen) so i am rereading the series !

    1. Daniela, YES, the contest is International. I should have mentioned that. ALL of my contests are International. I have lots of International readers, too.

      Thank you for being one of them!
