Hello!

I took a break from edits to write a post on The Lucky 13s blog about how I choose names for my characters.

Did you see the rad new trailer for my agent-mate Gina Damico’s debut, CROAK?

It is here and it is hilarious.

So is Gina’s book! I was lucky enough to get an advance copy and interview her for The Lucky 13s blog, which will post later this month.

In the meantime, I want to share the goodness, so I’m giving away my ARC of CROAK! All you have to do is fill out the form below, and you’ll get extra entries for tweeting about the giveaway, following me on Twitter, and/or posting about it on your own blog/Facebook/other site. This giveaway will be open until Sunday, March 11th, at 11:59pm PST. Then I’ll choose a winner and announce it next week. (Sorry, this giveaway is U.S.- and Canada-only, but I do hope to offer international giveaways in the future.)

Good luck!

This giveaway is now closed and the winner was Vivien. Thanks to all who entered!
