Giveaways and Hunky Guys! Oh MY!

I have been terribly remiss not to stop here more this past month. Things at TKA have been AMAZING--we've placed more than 100 titles already this year (as an agency.) And last month was nearly a record month of sales for us--in the summer of all things! Nuts! And, of course, in all my extra time I'm hammering along on PARALLEL SEDUCTION, my April '07 book.

But here I am, at last, at last, and wanted to share a few fun things. First of all, listen up all you fans of PARALLEL ATTRACTION! I am going to give away a galley of PARALLEL HEAT at the end of this month, exclusive to *this blog*. What do you have to do to enter? Simply post on this thread and let me know you are entering the drawing. On August first, I'll draw the name of the lucky winner! :)

And while I'm here, in honor of having just watched MEMOIRS OF A GEISHA for the first time (so-so movie, which was too bad), here are some more pics of hunky Ken Watanabe:







I think he's one we could nominate to play a beautiful alien warrior. :)

And then, speaking of alien warriors, I found a few pics of my cover model on both PA and PH, Nathan Kamp. Check these yummies out:

Awesome news about TKA! Congrats!

OH, yeah! I'd love to be entered into the drawing. What a great idea!
(having a contest, not me entering, although that's good too *grin* )

As for yummy NK, I've got the first pic but not the second...he looks natural with a bike...woot!
Great pics. Mind if I borrow the second for my "collection" *wink*

Ken Watanabe - I've never seen him before - what movies has he been in?

BTW- I promised Judson to do a Shout Out about Parallel Attraction and it's up.
Apologies that it took so long to do.

It is a wonderful story as many reviews attest to.
I agree.
Looking forward to the next installment!

Suzette! Thank you so much for answering my question. I've been wondering about The Last Samurai - the lure of Sir Cruise just doesn't do it for me...but Ken? I think I'll check it out now...THANKS AGAIN!!!

Hello, my darlings! I am BACK from vacation! Sorry to be MIA for about eight days, but there was no Net access at our condo.

Michelle, they've already told you the info on Ken Watanabe. I have to say, forget Tom Cruise in LAST SAMURAI. That movie totally belongs to Ken. He's beautiful, sexy, heroic... you'll be blogging pics too. :) I wish so much I could find the American Express ad they did with him. I LOVED it, and nobody has a good scan online. If anyone can FIND this puppy, I'll post it. It's of him with a horse, just gorgeous.

Hugs to all! Oh, and Michelle, thanks for the plug for PA!!!! D

Sounds like things are going well. Here is not only a scan, but a cute post about the My Life My Card Campaign. It's kind of small, but think everyone will get the picture.

My life. My card.

And I'd love to be in the drawing.

And wasn't Memories such a great movie? I thought it was beautiful.

Am I too late to enter the drawing?

I'm late in announcing the winner of the HEAT galley, but it goes to JOYCE!!! CONGRATS! We will be making an announcement on this blog this week, but email me and send your address! :) Deidre
