Sizzling Summer Contest: Shannon

8 Jul

I am so pleased with all the people heading over here to see what’s going on! This is awesome everyone! The winner from yesterday’s drawing of one book from Rhian’s backlist is…..


Congratulations, Anne! Rhian will be with you soon to make sure you get the book of your choice.

So what’s on today’s agenda? How about another smoking hot Passionate Reads author? Sounds good to me. Let’s meet Shannon! Shannon’s website can be found HERE. You guys know the game by now, right? Well, just in case we picked up a newbie, let’s review.

You’ll be looking on Shannon’s site for the hidden Sizzling Summer contest icon. Shannon has made it REALLY easy to find and enter by giving you a specific question AND telling you where to find the answer!  Can’t get any easier than that, can it?  🙂

When you find it, you’ll email passionatereads (at) gmail (dot) com {replace the (at) with @ and the (dot) with a .} with the web page that you found it on, along with the answer to her question. Easy, right? No sweat!

(Remember, you must email the answers for them to count. Answers to the icon hunt left in the comments will not count.) If you have any questions, the official rules can be found HERE.

And while we’re at it, how about another chance to win a fantastic ebook?

This is your chance!

Shannon’s going to hand out her Ellora’s Cave book, Noelle’s Gift, to one lucky winner. Check out the book blurb on her website under “Books”, and show some love in this post for your opportunity to win!

(Remember! Everyone who comments on this post is automatically entered to win the daily contest  for a copy of “Noelle’s Gift”! But HURRY! The daily contest closes at 11:59pm Eastern time.)

Your Contest Hostesses,

Kaily and KJ

    Wow, there were a lot of great authors at that convention. I really need to go to one if it’s in the area. it looks like everyone gets into it.

    • shannonemmel July 8, 2011 at 8:33 am #

      Oh yes! The conventions are a BLAST, especially RT. It’s in a different city every year and the next one will be in Chicago in April of 2012!

      Our publisher, Ellora’s Cave, has one coming up this fall called “Romanticon” and you can go to: for the details!

      Good luck with the contest!
