Contest on Plotmonkeys

Author Julie Leto's new novel, Phantom Pleasures, is soon to be released.   To celebrate, she's hosting a contest on Plot Monkeys.  ( )  For the next seven days, starting today, she will post an excerpt from her book.   You are invited to stop by, read, and leave a comment.   She will choose one person from the list of comments each day to receive a #20 Borders/Amazon gift card.   That's seven gift cards! (So glad that B.S. in Accounting hasn't gone to waste!)

I stopped by to read the first excerpt.   It's a mix of contemporary and historical with a heavy dose of paranormal and a good dose of heat.   This won't be for everyone, but I'm hooked.

Julie is a member of TARA, and she's a sharp and funny woman.   I'm looking forward to reading all of Phantom Pleasures myself.

Getting to know you....

I've been tagged by my fellow TARAn, Sarah Mäkelä. Here's how it works:

The rules of this meme are simple.

1. Link back to the person who tagged you.

2. Post the rules on your blog.

3. Share six unimportant things about yourself.

4. Tag six random people at the end of your blog entry.

5. Let the tagged people know by leaving a comment on their blogs.

Six unimportant things about me:

1. I own a ball python named Medusa.

2. I accompanied choir on the piano in high school.

3. I earned the nickname River Rat when I fell into the stream a few times at camp.

4. I've only been out of the country once -- a day trip to Nogales, Mexico.

5. When I was little, my friend Cindy and I used to climb tangerine trees and pretend we were stewardesses. Our favorite passengers were Davy Jones and David Cassidy.

6. I could recite the entire text of A Visit from St. Nicholas at age four.
