BETRAYAL iTunes Contest #4 (Your final chance to win $25 iTunes card)!

Okay, this is for the final $25 iTunes gift card. Your last chance to win. All you have to do is ask me a question about any of my books or writing or well ... really anything, as long as it's clean. Ask the question in comments here, or @ me on Twitter with the hashtag #question, or on the Haunting Emma Facebook page. That's all you have to do and you're entered.

I'll let this contest go until the end of the month, because I've got a new, even bigger and cooler contest starting April 1st. So contest ends March 31st at midnight! U.S. only.

And the Winner is ...

Lisa won last week's $25 iTunes contest!

Thanks everyone who entered! I loved seeing all your comments. I think 100% of you liked the UK covers just a little bit better.

I have to go on record as saying I love them all and Bloomsbury is super cool in both the US and UK.

The 3rd Betrayal iTunes Contest

Kristina Shields won last week's Twitter contest!

This week we've got another $25 iTunes gift card to give away. We've done Facebook and Twitter, so how about a blog contest? And because I've been dealing with some kind of zombie killer virus running through our house, I'm exhausted, and can't come up with a clever contest idea.

So, how about this? Leave a comment about the UK covers which will be published by Bloomsbury in September in the UK. I think they're gorgeous and I love that they used the same photos of Emma and Bennett, but made them different. What do you think? Do you like them more or less than the US versions? Or just the same?

Leave a comment and you're entered to win a $25 iTunes gift card. Contest ends Monday, March 21st, at midnight.

Betrayal iTunes Contest #2

Jenny Johnston Steward won the first $25 iTunes gift card! Jenny please email me for further details. LeeXNichols @ gmail.com

But there are three more to win. Last week was Facebook, this week is Twitter. Same contest. Just post @LeeXNichols Your favorite love song. Just so we're clear, this should be your actual favorite love song. If you post "Your favorite love song" I will not enter you. Unless that's actually the name of a song, but I don't think it is. You must be a follower to enter.

And if you entered last week, you're welcome to enter again this time on Twitter. If you had a hard time picking one, you can post a new one this time. I'm collecting all the songs and will post them at the end.

Contest ends midnight on March 14th. Winner gets $25 iTunes gift card. Good luck!

BETRAYAL is officially out!

To celebrate, let's have a contest. This month, I'll be giving away one $25 iTunes gift certificate each week. Why an iTunes gift certificate? Maybe this excerpt from Betrayal will explain.

I ran my finger around the edge of the black box and didn’t feel any sense of ghostly resonance, so I opened the lid and found a nest of red tissue paper inside. Buried beneath the layers was an iPhone
That iz not jewelry, Celeste said, clearly unimpressed.
I grinned as I grabbed the phone and turned it on. Weird. Who’d send me a phone? I swiped to unlock it and found a little ‘1’ next to the mail application, which I touched with my finger.
A message had been sent to EmmaVaile at an account I didn’t recognize. It was from BennettStern at the same network.
Four words: ‘I’m grateful for you.’
I felt my face light up with joy. It’s from Bennett.
Iz still not jewelry, Celeste said, but she looked pleased for me. Then she faded away, leaving me alone with my gift, which I liked a thousand times better than any bracelet.
I tried to email him back, but the account no longer existed. I flipped through the other applications and found the phone loaded with aps and ring tones. Then I clicked the music. He’d loaded a hundred songs, all them about love. Some I recognized, some I didn’t.
I plugged in the white buds and settled into one of the playlists. As the beats began to throb, I was grateful too. Grateful, he hadn’t forgotten me. 

So, to enter the first contest, all you have to do is like The Haunting Emma page on Facebook and post your favorite love song on the wall. If you've already become a member of the page, just post on the wall. Can't wait to see what songs you like, and a randomizer will pick the winner of the $25 iTunes gift card next Tuesday, March 8th.
