Thursday's thirteen: Windswept Shores

Since Thursday is LAUNCH DAY for my book, Windswept Shores. I’ve decided that my Thursday’s Thirteen will be thirteen things about my book, with a chance to win a prize.

1. My story is set on a deserted island in the Bahamas
2. My heroine Megan’s plane crashes into the ocean.
3. She’s the only one who makes it to the raft.
4. Megan’s been on the island for two lonely weeks.
5. My hero Seth’s boat hits a reef.
6. He had to swim for shore with no life vest.
7. Megan finds Seth nearly drowned, washed up on the beach.
8. Together they struggle to survive.
9. Against the dangers of the island.
10. The unpredictable weather.
11. And the dangerous creatures that live there.
12. With meager survivor skill between them, will they survive?
13. And will they find love?

Since my hero is an Aussie and my couple is basically eating barbied (barbequed) meals almost daily, I am offering a $25.00 gift certificate to Out Back steak house along with a journal with my book’s cover.
Entering is easy, just leave a comment. I will draw names on Sunday, June 6, and post the winner here.
It's Always Fresh in the Outback
If you don’t have an Outback Steakhouse near you, please tell me when you post a comment and I’ll find something else for the same amount. Maybe a gift certificate to Pink Petal books? Where you can find my book and other romance’s by some really terrific authors.

Bratty said...

We don't have an Outback in Wenatchee. We just now got an Olive Garden! But your book reminds me of a plot bunny I had a couple of weeks ago...I should read yours and see how it plays out!

Janice said...

Hi Nicole,

Thanks you. :0)

Hi Tess,

Thank you too.

Hi Bratty,

Well, I haven't bought the gift certificate yet, so if you win I'll get you for Pink Petal Books gift certificate, that way you can buy my book.

Take care everyone. Happy TT. And make sure you check back Sunday, June 6th for the winning announcement.

practimom said...

Congrats on the release! It sounds like it is going to be an awesome book! that aussie accent will drive me crazy!

Janice said...

Hi Practimom,

I have you down on the list for the drawing too.

I love his accent too, it was a bit of a challenge to get him to sound Australian, but I didn't mind. And then it just flowed, once I got the hang of it.

Please check back on Sunday, June 6th for the drawing.
