Contest & Celebration! Wickedly Wonderful is Coming!


OMG! Did you realize that the release of Wickedly Wonderful, the second book in the Baba Yaga series, is only SEVEN WEEKS AWAY? *faints*

Wickedly Wonderful (and yes, that dog is a dragon too)




I guess it must be time to have a contest and giveaway!

Here's the reality: People have been asking if there will be a book three. The answer is, it depends in part on you. Any day now, my publisher Berkley will be making the decision about whether or not to go with a third book in the series. They base that decision on two things--the sales numbers for WICKEDLY DANGEROUS and the preorder numbers for WICKEDLY WONDERFUL. If those numbers are good, I get to write book three and you get to read it. If not... well.

So how do I know if the numbers are even close? I don't. But one last push couldn't hurt, right? Besides, you know I was going to do a contest sooner or later. (In fact, there will be one more right before the release.)

Of course, you don't have to preorder the book. You can help spread the word, put up a review of Wickedly Dangerous (here's a secret: reviews help authors sell books). And of course, you can just have fun!

Unfortunately, there are no ARCs to give away of Wickedly Wonderful, and I haven't gotten my copies of the book yet. So we'll just have to make do. Here's what I'm giving away:




A signed copy of Wickedly Dangerous, a signed ARC (one of my last ones), a Wickedly Dangerous mousepad, a Wickedly Wonderful notebook, and of course, my eternal gratitude :-)

ALSO, the first TEN people to enter the contest will get free bookmarks, even if they don't win.

What are you waiting for? Enter! (The contest is only open to USA and Canadian residents, I'm afraid, due to shipping costs. But if you live elsewhere, feel free to enter anyway, and if you win, I'll send you a lighter-weight swag packet.) The Wickedly Wonderful link above takes you to Penguin's site for the book, which in turn will allow you to preorder from every option you can imagine.

As always, thanks so  much for your support!

  5. I actually like the cover of Wickedly Wonderful better - mainly because of the colors - and I can't wait til it's released.

  6. The cover for WICKEDLY WONDERFUL is more appealing because of the colors and the backdrop of the cliffs and sea. As to canines, I like the depiction of Chudo Yudo on the cover of WICKEDLY DANGEROUS only a smidgen better than that of Beka's companion on the upcoming release. What can I say ... I like pits!

    1. Ironically, I 'm much more of a cat person (although I do like dogs)--and yet I ended up with two covers with dogs on them :-)

  15. Just shared my review of Wickedly Dangerous on my blog, deborahjayauthor.com (and Amazon US & UK and Goodreads - oh, and facebook and twitter too!) - and I pre-ordered Wickedly Wonderful.
