First Hatbox Giveaway of 2014

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.

  1. This year I am looking forward to books. Some of favorite authors are all releasing in the next four months. And...I am very excited to be celebrating my daughter's (and her bff's) at girls' week at the beach this summer. Just girls!

  2. I love this series--and I'm not just saying that because Lynn is a friend. RT Book Reviews says, "Viehl pulls you straight into the world of Charmian Kittredge and never lets you go."

    You'll love this series, I swear. (Stop blushing, Lynn. It's true.)

  6. I am looking forward to painting my kitchen, buying a couch, finishing two crazy projects at work and starting another, possibly a promotion, my son getting his Wolf badge in cubscouts, lots of great books and television and movies... and just about everything!

  8. I'm excited about your new series But really loved the old ones! Best of luck with all the craziness. I have a few events this year that I am looking forward to: a family wedding, two vacations out of the country and the sale of a residential property that hasn't been good for me. A lot of good things and one bad! I can handle it, I hope without more grey hair! Here's to a good year for us both!

  9. Looking forward to finishing my first draft, as well as getting posted back to a ship to go to sea. More ski time, more gaming time. Honestly, I think I'm always looking forward to something, even if it's just little things.

  26. I'm looking forward to my niece's wedding in April, my annual sci fi association get together in June, finishing my first quilt and planning for more, reading some excellent books and spending time with my loved ones. On the book front I'm especially looking forward to Sofie Kelly's Final Catcall, Christine Feehan's Dark Blood, G A Aiken's To Kiss a Dragon, Patricia Briggs Night Broken, Maya Banks After the Storm and Lynn Viehl's Clockwork Wolf (which I've actually read and can assure you its brilliant).
