Win a $20 Amazon Gift Card

Ok, as a holiday weekend bonus, I'm adding to my earlier request (and prize). 

To be entered to win a gift from Amazon, all you have to do is help me choose between the two excerpts posted above (see tabs re: Candidates 1 & 2).  That's all: just read two short excerpts, tell me which one you like best and why you chose it over the other.

(And hey - if you hate them both, just tell me why you hate one less than the other, and you'll still be entered to win!) :)

As an added bonus, if you're an indie author, you can also be entered to win a free cover art package if you choose.  Just let me know in your comment whether you wish to also be entered for the art package.

The winner(s) will be announced July 8, 2011.


  1. OK, here's my thoughts. I actually like 'em both, but I personally prefer 2, Midnight Ink. "Forgiven" is funnier but I'm not a big reader of humorous fiction. I really like the tension and atmosphere of Midnight Ink. The chapter 1 of “Ink” is particularly suspenseful. I also really like that title as well.

  2. I love both stories but I LOVE "Forgiven!"

  3. Thanks for stopping by and voting, Emily! :)

  4. Both are very well written and I liked them both, but Ink won me over. Perhaps because the H&H have met and things are starting to sizzle already. (Although the ending of Forgiven was very intriguing and I'd probably want to read that one, too--even though I haven't read anything of that nature before.)

    How's that for indecision. Still, I'll stick with a vote for Ink.

    I'm also an indie writer (with my first two books coming out in August). So, I'd love to be considered in the drawing for the artist package. Thanks!


  5. Thanks so much for stopping by and adding to the choices, Kally! So far it's 3 to 1 in favor of Midnight Ink (Edie Ramer voted in a previous post.)

    Good luck with your new books!

  6. Yes, Midnight Ink is my fav. But I think you should write both books. :)

  7. Thanks, Edie. :)

    I do plan on writing both - I just haven't been sure which one to focus on first, and thought I'd see which seems to be more popular with other people.

  8. Midnight Ink! First off I have a thing for vamps. Second I'm into tattoos. Third the one eyed solder comment had me rolling!

  9. Thanks, Megan! I'm glad you enjoyed it. :)

  10. Oh...why did I choose Midnight Ink? Both characters felt original and interesting to me. I found myself wanting to know what happens next.

    I did like Forgiven, but given a choice I'd pick up Midnight Ink first. So that's my choice for the project to finish first.

  11. They both have that balance of dark eroticism and hypnotic mysticism you do so well, Kate, but my favorite is "Midnight Ink." When he views her as Little Miss Muffet, the trophy wife taking tennis lessons while hubby works, I learn about the way she presents herself to the world and the way he interprets what he sees. When he learns she's not what she appears to be almost immediately after that, it draws me deeper into the story and I wonder what else they're about to learn from each other.

    Nicely done!

  12. Thanks so much for your kind comments, Mark!


Say what you will...
