Surprise Winner!

Yes, we have a winner for the latest Surprise Contest! It’s Claritta from Little Rock. I’ll be sending Claritta a copy of the book she chose, which happens to be Love And The Single Mom.

Is there a specific C.J. Carmichael book that you’d like to own? Watch for the next Surprise Contest for your chance to win. The beauty of my surprise contests is that I let the winner select the title that she wants. This is an excellent opportunity to get your hands on an elusive book from my backlist.

Surprise Contest!

Yes, it’s time for another surprise contest. Enter before November second for a chance to win an autographed book from my available back list. The best part? You get to chose your prize!

There is a three step process to enter:

First Step: see if you can match the heroes and heroines in my upcoming trilogy, The Fox and Fisher Detective Agency, from this list: Kate, Nadine, Lindsay, Nathan, Jay, Patrick. (Hint: check my “Coming Soon” page.) 

Second Step: Send me an e-mail with your answer. (Go to Contact page for this.)

Third Step: Make sure you tell me the name of the book you’d like to receive if you are the lucky winner. (Include a back-up title, in case I am out of stock of your first choice.)

One winner will be chosen by random from all entries received by November 2nd. Good luck!

Summer Surprise Contest!

Looking for a fun summer read?  Contact CJ  and let me know which of my titles you’d like to read next. On August 15 I’ll chose a winner at random and send them the title they asked for plus a second title of my choice.

Hope you’re enjoying the summer. I’ve been doing some hiking, as well as working on line edits and final proof reads for The Perfect Partner?, The P.I. Contest, and Receptionist Undercover. Hard to believe the books still won’t be in book stores for another six months!



Surprise Contest Winner

Did I say there was going to be one winner? Because…surprise!…there are two! Congratulations to Marcie from Middletown Ohio, who requested a copy of The Dad Next Door, and to Tammy who has read the last two books of my Summer Island trilogy and was hoping to win You Made Me Love You. Well, guess what Tammy…you did win.

Suprise contests are fun. Stay tuned…there will be more!

Surprise Contest!

For the next couple of months, I won’t be running my usual monthly contests, but every now and then I’ll post a surprise contest on my Desk Diary. Today is one of those days!

If you’d like a chance to win an autographed book & exotic bookmark, just send an e-mail to and put “CJ’s Contest” in the subject line.The winner will be selected at random two weeks from now.  If you tell me which book from my backlist you’d like to receive, I’ll try to send you your prefered book (if I have any on hand).

Special…for FTHRW Members….If you participated in my on-line course on conflict for the RWA Chapter “From The Heart”, please tell me one thing you learned from the course and you’ll have an extra chance to win.
