Hello everyone! It’s just one week before the big release of Illusion of Night. I’m still going over contest ideas. I have a few things cooking in the pot that I think you’ll enjoy. Also, I actually managed to get the 21st off, from the day job. Quick! Everyone run out and buy a Powerball or Mega-Millions ticket, because I guarantee you that will not happen again. There’s obviously a lot of luck going around. :-). I do plan on having this celebration span both Sunday the 20th and Monday the 21st.

Among some of the things I would like to do:

1. A daytime and evening chat. This is so I can accommodate everyone on both the east and west coasts and everywhere in between.
2. A contest where the prize will be your name in my next work. Keep in mind, however, that I normally write male/male fiction.

3. A contest where you can win gift cards, possibly in the amounts of $3, $5 or $10 depending or a free copy of Illusion of Night by answering some trivia questions.  Remember I am the proverbial starving writer. 🙂

4. An offering to do a guest blogging. This one I’m going to need a little help with, because I’m not really familiar with how to do a guest blogging. But you can choose any topic that you like.

5. A contest where the prize is free advertising of your own work(s) on my blog for a specified amount of time.

6. Other games and contests for, you can win things from a free copy of one of my short stories to free music.
7. An interview of an author or artist. I already have a couple of people in mind to ask.
8. A “Name My WIP” contest, where I will have excerpts of my current WIP’s. Use them to submit a name.

I’m still researching other ideas, I’ll keep you up to date as the week progresses, and I am still looking for your ideas, which will be greatly appreciated. Sp feel free to comment on them right here.



About authorcjblack

I'm a multi-published author of fantasy, erotic and paranormal fiction. The first two books of my series, Illusion of Night and Memory in Shadow are currently available from Liquid Silver Books as well as a recently published novella, Soul Fires. I'm currently seeking an agent who loves heroic fantasy as much as I do, to rep my work, Tinderbox. I’ve been an author for almost thirty years and got my start on an old typewriter at the age of five and wrote my first novel at fourteen. Probably the world’s biggest bibliophile I own three-hundred plus books and counting. My hobbies include working in my garden, cooking and I’m possibly the world’s oldest Girl Gamer. I encourage readers and authors to contact me to discuss the business anytime.
