A contest!

Well, it's certainly the week for free books. Not only is my spy-con-rom-com The Twelve Lies of Christmas available free on Kindle all week, I'm also offering something spicier in the form of a free download of Empire: Dawn Rising.

Yes, you can read all about Edward and Callie's hot romance and fight for freedom for absolutely free, by entering my contest. All you have to do is answer one question.

In Dawn Rising, Callie has the ability to trigger an electromagnetic pulse when she orgasms (this is pretty handy if you're fighting an Empire totally reliant on technology, and you're doing it alongside a very hot man).

Callie didn't get to choose her superpower, but you can. Leave a comment on this post telling me what kind of superpower you'd like--and how you'd trigger it.

I'll pick one name at random on Friday 27th Nov to win a free download of Dawn Rising.

Oh, and before I forget: I just discovered this morning that you don't need a Kindle to read Kindle titles. You can download a totally free program from Amazon that allows you to read Kindle format titles on your PC (unfortunately, no Mac or Linux yet). So spread the word! Festive fun and freebies for all!

EDIT: Okay, not freebies for all. Freebies for those who live in the correct geographic area. I don't know what this is, but I know it includes the US, because shows 12LOC like this:

Whereas when I tried to download it, and logged in, it realised I'm in the UK and changed its tune to this:

I'm annoyed now. Perhaps my superpower ought to be removing geographic restrictions.

No, that's so lame.


  1. I love to stop time, maybe triggering it by eating chocolade ;)

  2. Hi Cat, great excerpt for Dawn Rising. As for superpowers, I would love to teleport, triggered by sucking on a piece of cinnamon candy.


  3. I would like to get magical powers. I think I would be able to give my family and friends anything that they wanted.

  4. Hmm, you know, I change my ideas on powers on a weekly basis. This week, it's definitely telekinesis mostly so I can manage getting everything done that needs to be done for Thanksgiving. Not sure what the trigger would be....stress? LOL, or the complete opposite, a zen state.

  5. I would like the powers of invisibility (is that a word???) My trigger would be each time I felt my pants were too tight… DAG, I would be invisible ALL the time!

  6. I would like the ability to create a protective invisible shield around myself or any others when I wish to. It would be triggered by my will.

    Happy Reading
