Happy Freebie Friday

Friday, November 5th, 2010
As we mentioned to our Take Home Tuesday devotees, our weekly giveaway feature on the blog will forevermore be posted on the happiest, most wondrous day of the week — Friday. Why? Well because Fridays are days of celebration, and we’d rather go off into the weekend with a bang.

In conjunction with the giveaways, we will post au courant links from around the web. So it’s also a good place to catch up on your news.


The rules of Freebie Friday are the same as Take Home Tuesday — well sometimes. Leave a comment, and we’ll draw a winner at random. Or we might switch it up a bit some days and ask a trivia question. Depends. Today, I think we should dare to be different. So the first person to answer the following correctly wins and advanced reading copy of LORDS OF PASSION by TKA client Kate Pearce, along with Virginia Henley and Maggie Robinson.

Question: What book safe online viagra does the following first line belong to?

“Whether I shall turn out to be the hero of my own life, or whether that station will be held by anybody else, these pages must show.”

Report from Cyberspace:

NaNoWriMo (a.k.a. National Novel Writing Month) is underway, and frenzied writers hopped up on caffeine are well into the first week of a month-long project to finish an entire novel. Chuck Wendig gives NaNoWriMo folks several excellent tips on how to make the most of the event. (via Janet Reid)

SlushPile Hell digs up another goody. Nothing says rep me like a God-complex. :-D

A trapped miner’s wife AND mistress wait for him above-ground. One wants to hug him. The other wants to hug him and then kick him in the… Well you know, and apparently you can read all about it soon. MediaBistro gives the details on the Chilean miners’ book deal.

Amazon released their “Best of” lists for 2010, and Knight Agency client N.K. Jemisin’s debut fantasy, THE HUNDRED THOUSAND KINGDOMS was chosen as #5 on the Science Fiction/Fantasy list. Great job N.K.!

And if you didn’t see it in the post below, four of our clients hit the New York Times bestseller list! So congrats again to Rachel Caine, Gena Showalter, Christie Golden and co-authors Don Piper and Cecil Murphey.

Last, but not least. A little music to get you in the mood for the weekend:

UPDATE: The winner of JANE AND THE DAMNED by Janet Mullany is thebookfairyhaven. Congrats! Please email you rphysical addy to contests(AT)knightagency.net.

Leave a comment to win a copy of JANE AND THE DAMNED by Janet Mullany. The winner will be announced tomorrow afternoon.

The 411: Mullany (Improper Relations) pens kamagra online an impressively compelling Jane Austen mashup full of humor (“You damned Damned!”) and poignant irony. At a Basingstoke dance, the Austen sisters encounter some fashionable Londoners with a taste for blood. Jane is drawn to meet one of the Damned, enigmatic William, who turns her into a vampire against her will. Reverend Austen takes the family to Bath to seek a cure, but when the French invade England, Jane joins the other vampires in putting their superhuman strength and speed to the service of their country. Purists might regret Cassandra’s relegation to soppy sister, but the bond between Jane and her father, the small scenes that reflect Austen’s novels, the sly humor of a vampire Prince Regent, and an abundance of moral dilemmas and vivid action make this a very satisfying page-turner for vamp-lovers and Austen fans alike.

Take Home Tuesday Sposored by Louisa Edwards

Tuesday, September 21st, 2010

UPDATE: The winner of a signed copy of JUST ONE TASTE by Louisa Edwards is BrendaJean. Congrats! Please email your physical addy to contests(AT)knightagency.net.

Ever since I first started writing culinary romances, I’ve wanted to delve deeper into the fascinating world of food chemistry. Now, I wasn’t a straight-A science student in school (sadly, far from it), but one area of scientific study that truly interests me is the study of how ingredients interact with one another to become dishes.

In JUST ONE TASTE, I finally got my chance! The heroine, Dr. Rosemary Wilkins, is a complete genius on the subject. The hero, Wes Murphy, on the other hand, is more interested in how food tastes than in its chemical composition.

Wes is determined to get Rosemary to focus less on her abstract experiments, and more on the very real chemistry between the two of them! So he devises the perfect plan—a hands-on experiment to discover the truth behind aphrodisiacs…

Booklist calls JUST ONE TASTE “a rare treat that is certain to satisfy readers with its delectable combination of lusciously sensuous romance and irresistibly clever writing.”

To celebrate the release of the third Recipe for Love novel, I’m giving away a signed copy of JUST ONE TASTE! To enter to win, simply leave a comment telling paxil side effecs me your aphrodisiac of choice. (The winner will be announced tomorrow afternoon.)

UPDATE: The winner of an ARC of FRIDAY MORNINGS AT NINE by Marilyn Brant is macbeaner. Please send your physcial addy to contests(AT)knightagency.net. Congrats!

Leave your name in the comment section to win an advanced reading copy of Marilyn Brant’s FRIDAY MORNINGS AT NINE.

The 411: Every woman remembers her firsts: Her first kiss. Her first lover. And her first time contemplating an affair…

Each Friday morning at the Indigo Moon Café, Jennifer, Bridget and Tamara meet to swap stories about marriage, kids, and work. But one day, spurred by recent e-mails from her college ex, Jennifer poses questions they’ve never faced before. What if they all married the wrong man? What if they’re living the wrong life? And what would happen if, just once, they gave in to temptation…

Soon each woman is second-guessing the choices she’s made—and the ones she can unmake—as she becomes aware of new opportunities around every corner, from attentive colleagues and sexy neighbors to flirtatious past lovers. And as fantasies blur with real life, Jennifer, Bridget and Tamara begin to realize how little they know about each other, their marriages, and themselves, and how much there is to gain—and lose—when you step outside the rules…

Praise for Marilyn Brant’s ACCORDING TO JANE:

“A warm, witty and charmingly original story.” —Susan Wiggs, New York Times bestselling author
“An engaging read for all who have been through the long, dark, dating wars, and still believe there’s sunshine, and a Mr. Darcy, at the end of the tunnel.” —Cathy Lamb, author of Henry’s Sisters
“This is a must-read for Austen lovers as well as for all who believe in the possibility of a happily-ever-after ending.” —Holly Chamberlin, author of One Week In December

Turns out getting hitched was the easy part, while giving up a scorching passion is the last thing either are willing to admit…
