Reporting from the Other RWA

kate It was only a couple of weeks ago that many Americans and Canadians (and a few from further afield) were attending and reporting from the Romance Writers of America national conference in Orlando, Florida. However, there is another RWA out there, or down under, to be more precise. The Romance Writers of Australia just wrapped up their national conference early this week.

Giveaway News! (Contest Now Closed)

arthur Laurens

Though we draw readers from around the world, this site is based in the United States and today is Election Day here in a number of states. So – we have a special little giveaway for you with not one, but two, prizes on the ballot.

First up, we have a copy of Keri Arthur’s latest release, Bound to Shadows, to give away. This is the eighth novel in the Riley Jenson series, which several of our reviewers have enjoyed in the past. If you haven’t read this series, you’re missing some good books!

And your other choice? We have 2 copies of The Untamed Bride by Stephanie Laurens for giveaway. Laurens has created her own world for her characters through the Cynster novels and the somewhat related Bastion Club. Now, with The Untamed Bride, she begins a new series called The Black Cobra Quartet. Though set in the same world as her previous books, these books can be read independently.

To enter, simply comment below and let us know which book you’re entering to win – or whether you’re entering for both. The Untamed Bride can be shipped to US, Canada and UK addresses only. However, Bound to Shadows can be shipped worldwide. This giveaway is open from now until 7:00 p.m. EST on Thursday, November 5, 2009, at which time I’ll turn things over to random.org to get our winners. Many thanks to Keri Arthur and Stephanie Laurens for donating these prizes!
