The “I suck at promotion” giveaway

I’m one of the few authors who admits to actually liking promotion. I love blog tours, book signings, workshops, etc. I like coming up with cool little gifties and giveaways.

But I have twins now!

Boy: Hi Mom!

Girl: Tell her we’re going to start charging for blog appearances

I have deadlines. Exhibit A: I present you deadline desk where I’ve stopped trying to organize and subsist on brownies and coffee

I have a stack of advance copies of My Fair Concubine that really should go into the hands of readers and reviewers before June.

Want some? Books, I mean, not brownies.

I’m giving away three print copies to blog commenters. Just say anything. I’ll randomly draw and announce the winners Friday evening.

    Your twins are so cute!!! My Fair Concubine has very beautiful cover.
    Thank you for the giveaway!

    It’s been driving me nuts since I first saw that cover some time ago. The guy on that cover looks a lot like a well-known HK actor, but I can’t remember his name. He’s appeared in HK crime films last ten years. Usually as a cocky villain sidekick or a rich playboy son of a villain. Very tall. Rather smirky. Dodgy hairstyle (almost a mullet). I think his first name is something like Tony. I’ll find the answer soon. AM DETERMINED! *fire in eyes*

    (Please don’t include my entry for the giveaway)

    HAH! Found him. Tony Leung Ka-Fai (a.k.a. the Other Tony Leung)

    He appears at 1:16 of this Ashes of Time trailer (note: both Tony Leungs appear in this film):
