In two weeks the print edition of Disenchanted & Co. will be hitting the shelves nationwide. This series has been such an interesting experience that sometimes I forget how long the journey to this point has been (five years!)
What will never fade is my gratitude to all the people involved in helping me realize this unlikely dream, and if you don't mind I'd like to mention a few that went above and beyond for me: my guy and our kids, who have done just about everything but write the books; my editor, Adam Wilson, who has worked alongside me tirelessly, who has been so generous and understanding, and in every way has proven to be a huge blessing in my writing life; the amazing Jeff Somers, a wickedly talented writer and my video producer, who is also quite possibly psychic; NYT bestselling author Darlene Ryan, my dear friend, my wonderfully gifted colleague, and my rock through whenever things got turbulent; and last but not least, all of you regular visitors to the blog who have stopped in and cheered me on and helped spread the word and otherwise provided such generous support for the series. I've been looking forward to this release for five years, but I couldn't have made it here without you. Thank you all for being there for me.
Naturally I thought I'd give away the first copy of the print edition of Disenchanted & Co. here on the blog. Good thing I checked Her Ladyship's hat box this morning, too, because she also has a couple of things to contribute: a print ARC of The Clockwork Wolf as well as one of my handmade crazy quilt totes (this one includes one of my stitching experiments with holographic thread and burnout velvet, as well as some luscious violet silk velvet patchwork.)
If you'd like to win the tote and the books (which I will sign for the winner), in comments to this post tell us something that you're looking forward to this year by midnight EST on Thursday, January 16th, 2014. I'll draw one name from everyone who participates and send the winner the lot. This giveaway is open to everyone on the planet, so please join in.
