Newsletter contest

This contest ran in my latest newsletter, but it’s open to anyone who finds this. There’s something mysterious in this lovely treasure chest – Jewelry? Gift card? A tiny hellhound of your very own?

You could win whatever is hiding inside this box PLUS a signed backlist title of your choice! International entries welcome.

Leave a comment on this blog post and tell me what you think might be inside the box! I’ll pick a winner on February 19, 2017.

(Treasure chest not included. I had to battle multiple fairies to get this one.)

    With an emerald in the design! 🙂

  4. Robbie Bauldree says:

    Because I like anything Celtic, I would love to see a Celtic Cross. But, anything would be good.

  5. Jane Thompson says:

    A beautiful very elegant ring with a celtic design.

  6. Tabatha says:

    I really want to see that tiny hellhound, but I am also kind of hoping you caught one of wily fairies and are slowly befriending it… or you know jewelry because that is what everyone else thinks.
    (I would hope for the hellhound or the gift card still though.)
