Photo contest winner who made my day

Kerri N. braved the hostile bouncers friendly sales associates at Target to bring us this photo of Wicked Game in the very special (to me, anyway) wilds of a non-bookstore venue.

Right under Charlaine Harris, which is pretty cool, considering a quote from the review by the lovely Ms. Harris is right on Wicked Game's cover. It's like subliminal or something.

For her efforts, Kerri won an Advance Review Copy of Bad to the Bone. Congrats!

I've also gotten a report of the book appearing in at least one Walmart. Many Borders and Waldens are carrying it. Plus, you can still get the trade paperback at most Barnes & Noble stores, if you want to create a matching set with the upcoming Bad to the Bone.

(Just got word that Bad to the Bone will be reprinted in mass market paperback in March 2010. But that's a long time to wait, right? Absolutely.)

If you spy the book in a grocery store, drugstore, airport book stand, or another place, I'd love to know (no pictures necessary--I swear I'll believe you). It's fun to see where it lands when it leaves the safety of the warehouse.

I am almost out of Bad to the Bone ARCs (my cat is happy to have the empty boxes to play in). The last one will be given out on Monday, and of course I shall post here when the guest blog is up.

There are a few giveaways still open. Here's a continuously updated list of all current contests.

Have a good weekend!

Thanks, Jeri! You put a huge smile on my face with this one! :-) :-D

Of course, now I'm on the "persons of interest" list for Target! LOL

Best of luck with your big upcoming release. I know it will be a huge success.
