WIP Wednesday and a Jackie Collins Contest

Are you an author with a current work-in-progress? Would you like to tease your work on a future WIP Wednesday? If so, please e-mail Erin O'Riordan: erinoriordan (at) sbcglobal (dot) net

This week I've been working on a guest blog post for Nora B. Peevy at The Demon Stole My Pencil. Nora is a horror author, and for October her blog is featuring a Halloween theme, complete with graveyard tours and haunted amusement parks. My guest blog for Nora is titled "Vampire Books to Die For," and runs down some of my favorite reads featuring undead drinkers of blood. It'll be published on Friday.

And Now For the Contest. Last week I featured a video clip of author Jackie Collins discussing her new Lucky Santangelo novel, Goddess of Vengeance. MacMillan has published an audio book version, and one lucky reader will win a free copy of the audiobook!

The contest is open to U.S. and Canadian residents 18 years of age and older. To enter, please follow this blog through Google Friend Connect (both current and new followers are eligible) and leave a comment on this post. Your comment must contain your e-mail address, or I won't be able to contact you if you win. Entries will be accepted through 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on Friday, October 14. The winner will be chosen at random and notified by Monday, October 17th.

You can read more about the audiobook HERE on the MacMillan/St. Martin's Press website. You can listen to an audio clip there.

Erin, I think I'm the first one here...and I tried to listen to the audio, but nothing ever started, although the command keys did work... I've read Jacki before though and thoroughly enjoy her books--watched her recently on TV talk show and her latest sounded just as great as always. I've been "listening" more lately since I'm having some eye problems...just reading slower for text cause I can't give up books! The last book I listened to I was amazed that the narrator did character voice changes! Really! Would love to "hear" Jacki's new book...!

Thanks for your entry, Glenda. I gave up and removed the embedded audio, but you can listen to the clip on the MacMillan website.

I'm heading over to read on the Demon stole my pencil (what a great name!). I love listening to books while driving to and from the station.

I'm surprised I didn't have more entries!
