Early Bird Contest!

If you were on Facebook yesterday, you may have seen the new cover for the soon-to-be released, Saturday Night Cleaver.

But never fear, because if you weren’t on Facebook yesterday, you get to see the unveiling here:

My cover designer, Katerina Vamvasaki, does the most amazing work, don’t you think?

Currently, the release date for Saturday Night Cleaver is Friday, December 7th, but if you would like to receive a copy a full week earlier, ENTER THE EARLY BIRD CONTEST!!!!

Three winners will receive a free copy of Saturday Night Cleaver on or before November 30th. This copy will be in a file that you can upload to your Kindle, Nook, or computer.

How do you enter?

Easy! I offer you three ways to enter:

1) leave a comment here with your name and email address (best way to reach you, I don’t keep it after the fact for spam emailings!)

2) leave a comment on the FB post announcing the contest


3) email me at karen.cantwell@yahoo.com and type EARLY BIRD CONTEST in the subject line

I will announce the three winners on Wednesday, August 29th. Be sure to tell your friends! And if you don’t win this one, never fear, I will be running several more contests between now and December 7th!

And don’t forget to offer your opinion in the favorite cover poll on the sidebar!!!

Good luck and have a WONDERFUL day!
