Shades of Milk and Honey giveaway and review at Adventures of Cecelia Bedelia

Over on the  Adventures of Cecelia Bedelia, there’s a chance to win two copies of Shades of Milk and Honey, thanks to celi.a who seems to have fallen in love with my novel.  Here’s how her review starts off:

I found myself proclaiming to my friends that I’d found ‘the perfect book’ yesterday. I didn’t mean that it was THE perfect book for all time and all people. I did mean that I’d found the book that feels as if it was written expressly for me, because it fits my tastes perfectly. And luckily for the rest of you, it’s also well-written, so there’s a chance that you’ll find it just as enchanting as I did.

She goes on to talk about why she likes it AND THEN offers to give away two copies. Here’s the end of the review with the giveaway details.

Recommended for: historical fiction and subtle fantasy fans, Regency-era devotees, readers who view Austen as the comfort food of the book world, and anyone looking for a beautiful read with strong art overtones and a classic feel.


I’m giving away two copies of this book, because I loved it, and I want other people to love it too. Also, when I tried to buy it at Borders I found that they’re not carrying it in stores. Travesty!

Can you spot Shades of Milk and Honey in the wild?

I’ve just received word that Shades of Milk and Honey is turning up in some bookstores already. The official release date isn’t until next Tuesday. August 3rd. Five days.

But since they’ve shipped, some bookstores go ahead and stock them as soon as the box arrives.  Not that I’m eager to see it or anything, but… I will mail a hand fan and a signed book plate to the the first five people who spot the novel in the wild.

Just capture it with a camera, post the picture online via your electronic means of choice then come back to my website and drop the link in the comment thread.

Caption Contest: Win a copy of Shades of Milk and Honey

Look! My author copies of Shades of Milk and Honey arrived today.

We are also eight days away from the release day of August 3rd. Not that I’m counting.

To celebrate, I’m going to give away two signed copies of Shades of Milk and Honey.

How do you win? Between now and August 1st post a caption in the comment thread on my website to go with this illustration from 1800.

On August 2nd, I’ll open a poll with the various captions listed and give a copy of the novel to the most popular caption AND to my personal favorite.

Edited to add: Yes, you may enter more than one. However, with this addition I’ll narrow them down to my top favorites before posting the poll.
