I have a surprise for you, and I'm so excited to reveal it. Through a wonderful combination of gumption, generosity, and luck, I can finally answer a resounding YES to a question I've been asked at least a thousand times since April. And, that question is?
Will Hearts in Darkness be available in print?
The answer is now YES! I won't go into how and why the sausage got made, but it did, and it's oh so delicious! LOL

So, it's the perfect occasion to run a giveaway event! To enter to win one of two PRINT COPIES of HEARTS IN DARKNESS, you must do at least THREE of the following:
1) REQUIRED OF ALL ENTRANTS: Comment here & leave your email address and which TWO other requirements you fulfill
2) Follow my blog, using the Google Friend Connect/Follow button over yonder on the right
3) Follow me on Twitter
4) Sign up for my newsletter, down at the very bottom of this blog page
I'll accept entrants through 12 MIDNIGHT EST on Sunday, August 14. Two winning commenters will be chosen using Oh, and, I'm even making this bad boy open to international entrants, too.

Thanks for reading! (& hopefully, entering!) Good luck!

Hi Laura,
I've signed up for your newsletter, & commented here. However, I'm not finding your Google Friend Connect/Follow button on your website or blog in order to follow the blog. Is the appearance different from that of other sites? Is it the RSS feed? Or the Subscribe to 'Posts' or 'All Comments'?

I've clicked onto the RSS to subscribe to that feed. If that's not correct, please let me know via an email. (Perhaps you can provide the link to follow your blog?)

Would love to win a print copy.

Laura Kaye said...

Laura Kaye said...

Hi Lea-Ellen--You should see the Google Friends Connect button immediately under the purple Lor Mandela's August Authorpalooza box/button over there in the right-hand column. It says "WORLD'S COOLEST PEEPS" and below that there's a blue button that says "Join this site" with Google Friend Connect. If Bloggers being a PITA and not showing it for you, I'm sorry! Thanks for following otherwise!

:) Laura
