Elsewhere with My Secret Life

Today I'm over visiting The Good, the Bad and the Unread to talk about my secret life (not the one related to the bat cave; the other secret life.) Stop in if you get a chance and enter to win this giveaway tote filled with signed galley copies of Her Ladyship's Curse and His Lordship Possessed along with some other lovely goodies.

I'm also adding some new prizes today to my 50th Novel giveaway tote:

Along with the Splendor tote, the winner will receive:

-- A signed print galley copy of His Lordship Possessed

-- A special $50.00 BookWish

-- New! Audio editions of all three of my Lords of the Darkyn novels

-- New! A pair of romantic black lace gloves from Victorian Trading (which are almost identical to the gloves Kit is wearing on the cover of Her Ladyship's Curse).

If you'd like to win everything I'm giving away this week, all you have to do is help me spread the word about my new series. For details on how to do that, and to officially enter the giveaway, click here.

Some readers have asked for better pics of the tote, so here's a slideshow with pics of the front and back as well as more details about the work I did on it:

The tote took about 100 hours to make, and features tons of glass and stone beads, freshwater and faux pearls, Swarovski crystals, holographic threads, vintage metal pendants and antique lace and trims. I used some of my more elaborate crazy quilt embellishment designs to make it, including an emerald bead spider hanging from a golden holographic thread web. All the beading and quilting is completely hand-worked, primarily on silk patchwork, and the three vintage brooches on the blue velvet ribbon on the back of the tote are removable so the owner can wear them separately.
