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.

Cute twins with their own commentary, brownies and book covers? Gotta love the choice of pictures.
May 07, 2012 @ 12:59:51
I’ll take a boook and a brownie please.
Those kids are getting cuter every time Is see them.
I’d love to review Concubine for ya. (Still have one to do for you…haven’t forgotten.)
May 07, 2012 @ 13:11:53
I, too, would love a copy and would be happy to review for you. The kids are adorable. Have fun with them!
May 07, 2012 @ 13:29:53
Your twins are so cute!!! My Fair Concubine has very beautiful cover.
Thank you for the giveaway!
May 07, 2012 @ 13:38:03
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): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFh55NaFVLc

@Maili – Big Tony? Huge crush on him from The Lover.
May 07, 2012 @ 14:25:03
WOW! The twins are growing so fast!!!!
May 07, 2012 @ 15:38:22
*pinches chubby cheeks* Awww! Adorable!
May 07, 2012 @ 21:22:37
Brownies are totally a food group! Your babies are looking more and more adorable~

May 09, 2012 @ 08:02:40
I know I did win your ebook but I figured I’d try anyway, since I’m one of your biggest fans and always appreciate when you respond to your fans. 🙂
Your twins are the cutest. 🙂
May 09, 2012 @ 12:25:58
No really, I would love to win one of your books.
As for the babies….AWWWWW….almost makes me want another. Not really, I have 5 of my own and that is enough for me. Should start having grandbabies before too long and that will help with need a baby fix.
