Update, 12/30 – The ten winners (drawn at random by Rafflecopter, listed in the widget below) have been announced and notified! I’ve sent out emails to the winners, and to everyone who entered, so if you don’t see an email from me in your inbox, please check your spam or bulk mail folder just in case. Thank you so much to all who entered! 

Do you want to write a romance novel in 2017? Or write another romance novel? Or write a better romance novel? (Hah, don’t we all want that last!) Then this giveaway is for you.

Twenty years ago, I made a New Year’s resolution to write a novel. Didn’t happen. So I made that same resolution nineteen years ago, and eighteen years ago, and seventeen … you get the picture. It took me ages to get from wanting to write a novel, to actually having written one.  But I made the resolution every year nonetheless. I would buy myself a pretty new notebook and some pens, and for a few weeks, anything felt possible.

2017 may or may not be the year that the romance-writing thing gels for you. That’s okay. The wanting counts. The sitting down and trying counts. The reading counts. And fresh pens and blank notebooks that make us feel anything is possible?  They count, too.

So for anyone with a romance-writing New Year’s resolution, I’m offering a giveaway with some of my favorite, most essential writing things.

Ten winners will each receive a … Read More »
