Winners and a "First" Giveaway

I didn't forget about you! My sister and I went to Nashville for a concert, and when I came back on Monday, I immediately headed to Indianapolis for a conference. I came back Wednesday to some leaks in my apartment, so there were some things to take care of. Time to get back to the blog.

Congratulations to the winners of the most recent contest. Donna Andrews' The Nightingale Before Christmas will go to Karen M. from San Bruno, CA. Susan M. of Montgomery, AL won Lea Wait's Shadows on a Maine Christmas. The books will go out today.

This week, I'm giving away two books that launch new series. Hannah Reed's Off Kilter will take a reader to the Scottish Highlands. After the death of her mother and end of her marriage, Eden Elliott headed to Glenkillen, Scotland, to do some hands-on-research for a novel. Instead, she finds herself doing hands-on-research to find the killer of the town's sheep shearer, a man that everyone seemed to like.

Even if you don't read Miranda James' Cat in the Stacks mysteries, you might want to enter to win Bless Her Dead Little Heart. It's the first Southern Ladies' mystery featuring the elderly Ducote sisters whose mistake in extending southern hospitality to an old sorority sister leads to a family invasion and murder.

This week is all about discovery. Would you like to head to Scotland or Mississippi? You can enter to win both books, but I need separate entries. Email me at  You subject heading should read either "Win Off-Kilter" or "Win Bless Her Dead Little Heart." Please include your name and mailing address. Entries from the U.S. only, please. The giveaway will end next Thursday, Nov. 27 at 6 PM CT.

Don't you mean to have us email you?

Lesa said...

Yes, and thanks for the note saying I missed that, Libby. Don't worry, Sandy. You'll be included in the drawing. My fault!

Doggone it. That's what comes from reading so many books. I meant Off Kilter. So sorry.
Robin L. Coxon,

Lesa, I've already bought and read both books, which were wonderful, but I wanted to let you know that the last couple of times I tried to e-mail you for your contests the e-mails bounced back. I have no idea why as I have successfully e-mailed you many times in the past.
Anyway, Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

Lesa, welcome back. I hope your leaks have all been fixed and you are warm and cozy reading by the fire in a big ol' comfy chair.

PS: I love the Cat in the Stacks mysteries.
