Because my Boleyn Deceit ARCs are watching me reproachfully Every. Single. Day. while I revise Reckoning. I've never had ARCs to give away before, so it's possible they scare me. Or that I wanted to hoard them ('my precious') or that I've taken the time to devise a wonderful, thought-provoking contest.
It's possible, but not true. The truth, as always, comes down to I Just Haven't Done Anything Yet. If you'd like to complain about that, you'll have to get in line behind my husband and children and house at this point.
Here's what I've come up with in my snatched moments away from revisions and back-to-school insanity: I had a wonderful time in London this summer. I have the pictures to prove it. Many of those pictures are of places that matter in my books. So for the next (mumble, mumble bunch of days) I will post various pictures of various places and convey in as few words as possible my love for said places.
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN A BOLEYN DECEIT ARC, COMMENT ON THIS POST TELLING ME YOUR FAVORITE PLACE IN ENGLAND (EITHER VISITED OR HOPED-TO-VISIT SOMEDAY).
I will run this contest through midnight Eastern Time on Thursday, September 5. I will then randomly select TWO winners from the comments to receive not only a signed ARC of The Boleyn Deceit, but a signed copy of The Boleyn King and signed posters of the covers for each of those books.
Hooray for England! Hooray for history! Hooray for free books!
And mostly Hooray! for those of you who've taken a chance on my books and made me happier than you'll ever know :)
