Thank you everyone for joining. I meant it when I said that this experience has been beyond my wildest expectations. I will continue to give you updates via the newsletter. Next month’s edition will have the first sneak preview of the sequel, THE DRAGON AND THE PEARL, so don’t miss out!

BUTTERFLY SWORDS will continue to sell on bookshelves for the next two weeks only so grab a copy quickly. And if you liked Butterfly Swords, take a look at THE TAMING OF MEI LIN, a linked short story from Harlequin Historical Undone full of sword fights and romance.

Congratulations and thank you everyone for your support!!

To the winners: Winners can contact me here. I also have your e-mails and I will be in touch by the end of the weekend. If any of the winners would rather have  a nice print copy of Butterfly Swords for your reading pleasure, let me know and I’ll happily exchange. If any of the winners opt out, the items will be donated to the next Brenda Novak online auction for diabetes research or a similar charity.

    This was an AWESOME contest – One of my favorite giveaways ever. I’d be completely jealous if I didn’t have the author on speed dial for any questions I had on the book 😉

    Here’s to the rest of the month being a sell out!

    My pleasure!

    And FYI, Desere has asked that the annotated copy be donated to the Brenda Novak auction for diabetes next year. So anyone who was eyeing it can have one more chance at it. And for a good cause too!

    I’ll be hitting the post office tomorrow. There are a few international shipments so I know they’ll take a little longer, but hopefully your prizes will arrive shortly. Thanks again for the support!

    Wow! thank you so much. I am very excited to be the winner. I appreciate your writing Butterfly Swords very much and was happy to pick it up the very first week it came out — it is on my To Be Read book pile, near the top. I look forward to reading it. Thanks again for the contest. All the best,
