All the entries are in! We have what I think is a record number of contestants: thirteen! So get settled in and get ready to choose. If you haven’t seen all the badges entered into the contest, make sure you visit the links and take a look.

Since I can’t put the links themselves in the poll, I’ll name them. So when you find your favourite, remember the name of the badge so you can vote for it.

Here they are in the order they entered the contest:

Anita with Puppy Love

John Holton with Highway

Willow with White Swan

Fandango with Blue Angel Jet Stream

Mamasquirrel with Nutty Squirrel

JoAnna with Pelicans in Flight

Laura with Long Dock

Thank you so much to all the contestants! It’s going to be a tough decision!

The poll will be open for 24 hours only, and the results will be hidden until the poll is closed. In case of a tie, I’ll choose the winner.

Vote once, vote carefully, and be sure to tell your friends!

Best of luck to all our fabulous artists!

The Magician’s Blood is up for an award!!

I’m so excited! Not only has The Magician’s Blood been nominated for the Reviewer’s Choice Award by the Paranormal Romance Guild, my entire series is up for an award too!

The PNR Guild is arguably the place to go to find excellence in paranormal romance. I was so happy last year when The Magician’s Curse won in the category of Gothic romance. This year, they have me in Fantasy-Demons, Devils and Angels, which actually fits better with the sub-genre of the second book.

But in order to win, I need your help. All you have to do is be signed in to your Google account and then go to the following link and vote:

https://www.paranormalromanceguild.com/2018-prg-reviewers-choice-awards-ballot/

My categories are about a third of the way down the page. Make sure you vote in both categories: once for the book and once for the series. You only get one chance to vote per Google account you own, so make it count! Voting ends on January 29th.

I’m thrilled to be nominated! So much so, that to celebrate, I’m going to drop the price of The Magician’s Blood to 99 cents for one day only–tomorrow, which is my birthday!!

Your support is appreciated immensely!
