And tell me...would you think there was something cool and special just for you if you were asked to sign up for a Members Only section on a website that had some neat stuff not available to regular site visitors?
I ask because this could be a really effective way to increase my email reader distribution list. But I wonder if it would irritate readers at the level I'm at because let's face it, I'm not CF...or anywhere close to it. Let me know what you think!
I really, really want your input on this and my previous blog regarding websites. And I'm willing to pay...sort of. :) I will be giving away a signed copy of "book of choice" to one winner chosen from those who comment on this blog post and "You Heard it Here First...". To be eligible, all you have to do is give me your opinion by commenting on the questions in one or both of these posts regarding websites. What could be easier???
If you already have all my books, I've got some great ones by other authors on my prize shelves too!
Remember...while you can post anonymously/don't have to be registered on my blog, please give your name in the comment so I can identify you if you are the winner.
The drawing will be held on Friday. :)

Children of the Moon will go live later this summer and it's going to be a totally cool site with some ultra fun bennies for my readers. In my free time (um...well, something like that anyway), I'm working on a short story that will be a free online read. It's a prequel to the historical single title coming out in Feb '07 (Moon Awakening) and it's going to be illustrated by a new, but very talented Manga artist, ZJS. I'm his first commissioned work, but I have no doubt that once his work gets seen, he's going to build a fan following fast. Preliminary sketches are fab! I'm way excited about this. He has already created the tattoos my werewolves have to distinguish their ancestry. They're so perfectly what I was thinking when I wrote the book that I'm in awe.
But that's not even close to all...my second bit of super cool news is that I've just contracted with the CGI artist, Niekra, to create images for my main COM characters and maybe even illustrate some scenes from the books. You can see her work here. I'm totally thrilled that she's willing to work with me to give my readers something special. We are starting with my novella in Unleashed and I can't wait to see he images she comes up with. The uber talented Jet Mykles recommended her and I'm a very grateful girl.
There's going to be more, but that's enough to wet your appetite, isn't it?
Can't wait to hear *your* thoughts!

Lance Marshall has a nose for great news stories-not surprising, since he's aided by his werewolf abilities. Now he's prowling outside an ultra-exclusive
And I came across another new suspense on one of my group blogs...LUCKY BREAK by Jan Conwell. It's published by Triskellion Publishing. It sounds really good and just like the kind of book I need for my new eReader. LOL Yes, I know you're thinking...she doesn't need any new books. Or at least that's what my editor who would like to see me turn my current book in on time is thinking. But I can always buy it for later, right?
I like what the author put on her website even better than the back cover copy...here's a little snippet: For those of you who haven't met her yet, I'd like you to meet Fiona Wright, the heroine of Lucky Break. She's a flat-chested, bespectacled, optimistic hippy-chick, a journalism major who (because of a rat-bastard ex-boyfriend) lands a job teaching Aircraft Fuel Systems maintenance. Really. She's every military man's nightmare--imagine Carrot Top as a woman, and put her on an Air Force Base.
So, let's stick with the theme...
What kind of suspense do you like to read?
If you like to read suspense that is.
Do you like the intense suspense or something lighter?
