In conjunction with the release of my Ellora's Cave fantasy, Prince of Glacier Glas (Friday, September 19) and CTR's big Alphabet Authors event this month, I'm running a contest. (You can read a long blurb, excerpts, and "snips" from the book by going to the EC chat loop and perusing posts 333177 to 333297. Or you can read a shorter blurb and excerpt at the EC site once the book is released.)

Anyway, if you can't meet the September 19, 8 p.m. Central deadline for the first part of the contest, which was announced today on the EC chat loop, I'll be offering another free download of Prince of Glacier Glas between tomorrow evening and the end of the month AND a free download of an erotic romance "sampler" book. These superb collections feature chapters from a variety of stories and novels. Many different publishers and authors are represented in each, and one is strictly for GLBT romances.

So here's what you have to do:

You can have one or two chances to win with either or both of these options (remember, doing one will snag you one entry; doing both will get you two entries). This portion of the contest closes at 8:00 p.m. Central time on Friday, September 19.
* Go to my "Dream Deeper" blog and post a response to my FANTASY post -- the second one from the top.

* AND/OR . . . email me at with the answer to this question: Name at least three story elements in Prince of Glacier Glas. You can read the blurb at EC chat post #333177.
1. First prize is a free download of Prince of Glacier Glas AND your choice of these hardcover books, shipped to you at no cost: In the Kitchen with Rosie (Oprah's Favorite Recipes) by Rosie Daley; Spoon River Anthology by Edgar Lee Masters. This collection of poems, for the more literary-minded among you, is an American classic. If you'd rather, you can instead have the softcover collection, Love Poems by Women.
2. Second prize is a free download of Prince of Glacier Glas.
3. If the number of entries warrants it, a third prize will be your choice of download of any of my Ellora's Cave or Cerridwen Press titles.
SECOND PART OF CONTEST, from September 19 (8:00 p.m. Central) to September 30 (8:00 p.m. Central):
Same rules as above, except the PRIZE will be a free download of Prince of Glacier Glas along with a free download of one MfR erotic-romance sampler anthology.

If you're confused , feel free to email me!
