WICKEDLY MAGICAL in Three Weeks! Yikes!

It suddenly occurred to me this morning that the Baba Yaga prequel novella, WICKEDLY MAGICAL, comes out three weeks from today yesterday. (There might have been some panicked shrieking, and possibly someone running around flailing their arms and yelling, oh my gods! oh my gods!)

Yikes.


The novella is only available as an eBook, like most novellas, but don't forget that you can get it through Amazon and download a Kindle app to your computer, if you don't have an eReader. And you don't HAVE to read it to enjoy the two novels, WICKEDLY DANGEROUS and WICKEDLY WONDERFUL -- it is just a nice way to meet the characters you'll get to know better later on.

The novella from B&N

Anyway, I said to Magic the Cat, I said, "Maybe we should have a contest to celebrate the upcoming release. Do you think I should give away one of the Advanced Reader Copies for Wickedly Dangerous?"

Apparently, she didn't think this was good enough. Here is what she suggested:


And as we all know, there is no point in arguing with Magic when she has her mind made up. So three copies it is. I'll even sign them.

Of course, I would love it if you would all run out and preorder the novella, the books, Magic's forthcoming autobiography (just kidding...I think I've bribed her not to write that)...but you don't have to. You can help spread the word, or just leave a comment here. Easy peasy. Because that's the way we roll around here. The contest starts at midnight tonight (July 15th) EST and ends Saturday night (July 19th) at midnight. (Sorry, USA residents only. If you live outside the US and you win, I'll send you something else cool.)

Okay, I'm going back to running around and flailing my arms now.

Addendum: Are people having a hard time using the Rafflecopter for some reason? There are a lot fewer entries than usual, despite the large number of page views. If something is going wrong, y'all would tell me, right?

  2. These are already worked into my newly-limited budget. I think it's down to just your novella and novel, plus Gail Carriger's November release at this point!

    1. I'm honored to be on your shortlist! Maybe you'll win a ARC, and then you'll only have to blow $2.99 on the novella :-)

  3. Would LOVE to receive a signed copy _ can't get the novella cause no kindle or nook or anything & cause I really love to actually hold the books in my hands - it's almost a "yum" with me

    1. I understand that. I only broke down and got a Kindle recently, mostly because of issues with my eyes.

      You can always download it to your computer and print it out :-)

  5. I would totally read Magic's autobiography, but I understand that you don't have time to take her dictation and edit it for her.

  7. Had problems yesterday with both leaving a comment on this site, and with pre-ordering through Amazon, but not with the Rafflecopter itself.
    All worked okay for me today :D
