For your chance to win this lovely birthday present from me, leave a comment about friendship. Or maybe how much you LOVE cake and ice cream. Either will do. As ever, if you don’t leave me a way to contact you, commit to checking back here tomorrow May 1, 2009 or thereabouts to see if you won one or more of the Birthday Bash presents.

I have tomorrow off of work and will be working on copy edits for Indiscreet.


More Birthday Bash!

Wednesday, April 29th, 2009

Today I received copy edits for my October historical Indiscreet so I’ll have to keep this post short.

More birthday bash celebrating going on. Tomorrow is the big day! And speaking of tomorrow, here’s a picture of today’s prize:

Handcrafted glass coasters

These are 4 lovely handmade (not by me!) glass coasters. To have a chance to win these, leave a comment on this post about …. um …. Heh. Answer this question:

You have a million dollars to spend, but you can’t spend it doing good deeds and you can’t put it in a savings account or anything virtuous like that. You must spend it selfishly on yourself. How would you go about spending it?

Usual rules, if you don’t leave me a way to contact you, you must commit to checking back here around May 1, 2009, to see if you won.



The Birthday Bash Continues! Even More Prizes Plus Stuff

Tuesday, April 28th, 2009

Today, delivered two copies of Lover Avenged and I was thinking of returning the extra (ohhh, can I do that to a fellow author?) when I said to myself, Hey, Carolyn, you can give that extra copy as a present for your birthday bash!

All righty! As my birthday approaches (soooo close!) here are today’s prizes:

  1. A cool ceramic plaque that says Believe. Pictured below.
  2. JR Ward’s latest in the BDB saga: Lover Avenged

Here’s a pic of the Believe plaque. Sorry for the bad photo. It’s no more than 5 inches high by 3 inches, roughly. It’s cute, too, and will look really good hanging in a window or by your computer or any place you would like to be reminded that it’s important to believe.
Ceramic Plaque with Hearts and the Word Believe on it.

To have a chance to win these prizes, leave a comment on this post about your favorite Brother, or about something you believe in. Like this: Zsadist is my favorite Brother followed closely by Vishous and I believe both those choices explain why I’m Team Jacob.

Only better, if you want.

If you don’t leave me a way to contact you, check back around May 1 2009 to see if you’ve won.

In writing news (just in case anyone’s curious) I am working on a proposal for my next historical.


Birthday Bash!!

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2009

My birthday is April 30th. And I am going to celebrate with you! Please send tens and twenties — just kidding!!

Probably I’ll make other prize announcements, but this one might bust the limited funds of the Bank of Carolyn.

1 pound of Leonides Chocolates. You pick your assortment, up to $34.00. I’ll have them shipped to you.

Leave a comment and commit to leaving an email or checking back on 4/30/2009 to see if you’ve won.

Chances are good I’ll throw in an ARC of My Forbidden Desire or something.


Honey Dijon

Saturday, June 21st, 2008

All righty. My ‘speriment worked. Some of you may know that I loooove to take photos, especially of flowers. I have a Flickr account and I post my photos there pretty often. They have a nifty feature where I can post a photo from Flickr to my blog, and hey! It worked! This rose is called Honey Dijon, and it’s the most amazing color ever.

It’s been so hot here lately that the roses are getting scorched. Sad, sad, sad. I’ll have to go out tomorrow with the clippers and prune the dead or fried ones.

In other news, I have been E.X.H.A.U.S.T.E.D. lately. Seriously exhausted. I missed the gym everyday except Monday because I needed that extra hour of sleep. Therefore, this morning I did Driveway Torture because I hate feeling like I’m turning into a slug. A big fat slug. I did OK and feel much better for having gotten some exercise. Even though it was too hot at 8:00am.

The writing is going pretty well, I think. Things are moving along and complexifying. I’m seeing my hero and heroine a little better every time.

In other, other news, today is my son’s birthday party with his buddies. He’ll be 13 on the 24th. He wanted me to make cinnamon rolls, blueberry muffins and cookies. I made the cinnamon rolls and the boys pretty much gorged. They’re filling and rich and sooo sugary buttery good. Better than birthday cake, if you ask me. When they’re this age, you hardly have to supervise at all. My job was mostly to pass out food and drinks and point them to the bathroom. Not like when he was five. Then it’s a whirlwind of never stopping action intervention hey don’t do that! Come have cake until it’s over and you’re glad this only happens once a year. Back then it was send them outside with squirt guns and water balloons which was pretty fun. But this is good, too.

OK, back to work.
