Felicity Arrives

About a year ago a certain blogpal posted this lovely news at her place, and I've been waiting impatiently ever since to write this post.

Vanessa Jaye's debut novelToday is the release day for Felicity Stripped Bare by Vanessa Jaye, a writer I've known since I started up this place.

Over the years that we've been cyber-acquaintances, Vanessa has had to put up with a lot from me. There was that rumor I started about her looking exactly like Angelina Jolie that has never entirely died down (hey, compare the lip photos and tell me there's not a resemblance.) Then there was the time I told off some ninny book doctor pimp posing as an author in her comments (very impolite of me to do that on someone else's blog, and I did apologize. To Vanessa, not the anonymous ninny, may she rot in scammer hell.) I'm pretty sure Vanessa doesn't realize I'm the one who . . . wait, we'll talk about that later during the Secret Jaye Expose chat.

I am particularly happy about Vanessa's novel coming out because 1) I get to give her a hard time about any mistakes I find in it and 2) it's an e-book. Regarding the latter, that means I don't have drive to the bookstore to buy it or wait around for the UPS guy to deliver it. I can have it as soon as Samhain downloads it to me. This also means I don't have to pack it up and ship it -- I can simply e-mail it to my winners.

Which brings me to the giveaway portion of this post. :)

If you'd like to read Felicity Stripped Bare along with me, in comments name the title and author of an e-book that you've enjoyed recently (or if you're e-book deprived, just toss your name in the hat) by midnight EST on Wednesday, July 9, 2008. I'll draw ten names at random from everyone who participates and e-mail the winners a copy of Felicity Stripped Bare by Vanessa Jaye. This giveaway is open to everyone on the planet, even if you've won something here at PBW in the past.

Added: Some folks have e-mailed to ask what format Felicity is in -- I'm buying my giveaway copies from MyBookStoreAndMore.com so the winners will receive the e-book in their choice of the following formats: Adobe, eBookwise REB1150, HTML, Mobipocket/Kindle, MS Reader, Rocketbook or Sony PDF.

    That is an enticing cover.

    The last ebook I enjoyed was Evermore by Lynn Viehl (Kindle edition.)

  4. Ever since I read the shower shopping excerpt I've been waiting to get my hands on FSB.

    One of the last e-books I really enjoyed was - My Fair Captain by J.L.Langley.

  5. I can't remember the last ebook I read, which obviously shows I need to read more of them. Please throw my name into the hat.

  6. The last ebook I enjoyed was a YA book by Meg Cabot: All American Girl. I'm a sucker sometimes for those YA novels ;)

  7. I've just finished Sherrilyn Kenyons 'Seize the Night'.... started out a bit puzzling, but the minute the heroine and hero meet it's sizzling off the screen.
    I've found that we don't get a lot of releases here in Australia, so ebooks are the best way to get to them.

  8. omg. I'm sitting here in shock. Someone just left a message on my blog that's you'd posted about FSB! Thank you, Lyn! :speechless:: I hope you enjoy it. I want to say more, but we're still working last minute kinks out with the new website (which should hopefully go live later today!)

    The last good book I read? The 2 Vols of HUSH - Batman graphic novel. If you like romantic suspense, and you love Bats, I'd highly recommend these two.

  11. Some of the e-books from Ellora's Cave are fantastic. I especially like Bronwyn Green. Ronan's Grail was absolutely the best.

    I also enjoyed Hal Spacejock by Simon Haynes.

  12. Don't enter me in this contest because I already won this book in a contest Vanessa had on her blog. I just stopped by to say that I absolutely LOVED Felicity Stripped Bare. It was my first eBook that I read and now I'm hooked on eBooks. I can't wait for Vanessa to publish more eBooks because I know they will be good.

  21. FYI, Sasha White's first ebook Meandros is now on her site as a free download. So nobody has to be ebook deprived, even if you don't win Felicity. *g*

    I think the last ebook I bought was Patrice Michelle's Anticipation (Samhain).

  22. I'm behind on my e-book reading, because she has another one more recent than this (Silky), but I absolutely loved Muse by Lazette Gifford.

    Lynn,
    I want to win! You are the first author I ever read who offered e-books so I'm going to name you! Oh, I did just download the free Sherrilyn Kenyon e-book "Seize the Night." I already owned a copy, but now I have it on my laptop for something to read when I'm bored!

  36. Hmm... Have Mercy by Lynn Viehl. Excellent read.

    I'm not usually a fan of e-books, but I can always change my mind - or have it changed for me.

  38. I am currently ebook deprived because my new laptop is in the shop.

    That's got to be why the last ebook I read was an e-ARC of Larissa Ione's Pleasure Unbound.
