Hello, dear readers, and welcome!
I hope you're excited, because today is the start of my latest giveaway! I've been talking about it for a few weeks now here on the blog, and the day has finally come. I'm very excited to be doing another giveaway, because I love spreading the gift of reading to as many people as I can, because I love stories and the way that they shape our lives.
Today's giveaway is focused upon my upcoming release, "As Long As Forever", a novella I've had in mind for a while, inspired in part by my father, and in part by Doctor Who, one of my favorite television shows. This novella is one I wrote when I was experiencing a bit of distance from writing and life, and it not only helped to cheer me up, but to get me back into the writing groove once more. I'm extremely proud of it, and it's become one of my favorite stories I've written so far -- about hope, love, and possibilities.
"As Long As Forever" officially releases on April 7th, with pre-orders now available (you can pre-order at: Amazon US, Amazon UK, Amazon Australia, BN, iTunes, Smashwords), but with this contest you'll have a special chance to win and read the new novella -- before anyone else! I'm also giving away copies of my bestselling novella "Lyrics of the Heart", and the second short in my Beastly Tales, "A Beast Of Beauty".
There are plenty of ways to win, but please, if nothing else, leave a blog comment. I'm asking my readers "what would you like to see more of in fiction, and why?", and I'm really curious to know! I definitely would like to see some variety, and may include answers in a future post.
How it works:
Entering / Giveaway Running Time: Enter the contest below by tweeting about the giveaway, following me on Twitter, answering my special blog post question, and more.

Winners are chosen at random by computer.

Wait! There's More!
Ready for a scavenger hunt? Somewhere on the Beastly Tales page is a link containing a Smashwords coupon for a FREE e-book copy of "The Beauty of the Beast", the first story in the series. Scavenge the page and find the link -- and coupon code -- and grab a free copy of the short! The link may be hidden within another link on the page, such as the iTunes US "A Beast of Beauty" link, or within a picture, or other text within the page...or the link may take you to a different page, but keep trying! Poke around and find the link -- but hurry! The coupon is only good until the end of March 24th. Enjoy, and happy hunting!
