Top of my reading list these days is Jane Porter’s The Good Wife. I’ve read the other two Brennan Sisters books (The Good Daughter and The Good Woman) and there are so many story threads I’m dying to see tied up. If you’ve been following this series, too, you’ll know what I mean. If not–go out and get your hands on the first two books! If you love honest, emotional women’s fiction, then you will power through these two reads, I’m sure.
To celebrate the conclusion of the Brennan Sisters trilogy (though I’d love to see more books one day…) I’m doing a 3 book giveaway: two of Jane’s and one of mine. To be entered, please leave a comment, telling me something you’ve read and enjoyed lately, and I’ll pick a random winner Monday at noon.
Hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend!
I have big news this month. It involves an exciting new romance series, a contest to win an i Pad Mini, and it’s called Montana Born.
What is Montana Born? It’s a brand new imprint of romance novels from a brand new publisher committed to bringing readers fresh and engaging new fiction. The imprint will open this September with four Copper Mountain Rodeo Novellas, including my own Promise Me Cowboy. Please check out the new Facebook Page and read more about this project. Also, be sure to enter the contest for Montana Born for a chance to win an i Pad mini.

When we have family reunions with my sisters and their young children, I love to set up a scavenger hunt for the kids. I send them on a merry chase all over the property–which this year happened to be at a couple of cabins at Good Spirit Lake in Saskatchewan. The clues were planted with diabolical care: one in grandpa’s pocket, another hidden in the trunk of a car, one tucked inside the microwave, the next buried in the sand by the playground…
I think it’s fair to say that these scavenger hunts have become a favorite event of our reunions, and I’m not sure who has more fun–me or the kids.
I wanted to bring the same sense of adventure and fun to my readers when I set up my newest contest. I’ve scattered clues everywhere: on my Facebook Page, on my Twitter Feed, and also on the C.J. Carmichael and Banit Creek Books websites. I hope you have time for a little silly fun, gather the clues and enter my contest for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate from Amazon.
You’ll find all the details on my Contest page. Ready, set…go!
Did you know that everything happens in Bandit Creek, Montana? This is the amazing fictional world created by the talented members of my local writing chapter. Two times a month a Bandit Creek Story is e-published. The stories cover every genre you can think of: historical, contemporary romance, mystery, paranormal, horror, romantic comedy, and so on. I’d love to introduce you to the first two books of the series. Of course, once you start, you may find yourself hooked!
To enter this contest, all you need to do is “like” my new fanpage on Facebook. The link is right there, on my home page. Then submit your name and email in one of three ways:
- Send an e-mail to: email@example.com
- Leave a comment to this blog entry
- Via Twitter to @cj_carmichael: please introduce me to Bandit Creek
Do all three and you’ll be entered 3 times! On Nov 28 I will select a winner and send them Lost by Vivi Anna and Siren’s Song by DL Snow. I know you’ll love these stories–I did!
Cheers from CJ
