I'm a Winner

I am supremely excited to tell everyone, I won a contest! Specifically, I won the Knight Agency Blog contest (follow the link to see my name at the top of the page!) to win an autographed copy of Jessica Andersen's newest book Dawnkeepers! (Much girly squealing ensued.)

After reading Andersen's post last week, I'd already decided I was going to hunt up her books the next time I went to the bookstore because she's managed to combine two things I love into her novels: paranormal romance (always a plus) and prophesies of the apocalypse of 2012 (which I'm rather obsessed with).

Before Dawnkeepers arrives, I'll have to buy the first in the series, Nightkeepers. Andersen's amazing website also includes lots of links to information about the Mayan calender, 2012, and so much more, so I'll be checking all that out, too.

My only disappointment in all this is that I didn't find Andersen before she published her second novel so I could interview her on NON. (Don't forget, it's Monday, and we've got a new author interview up on NON. This week, Irete Lazo talks about her first novel, The Accidental Santera.)

Congratulations! Too bad they didn't link to your blog!
I'm curious to know what you think of this series when you're done. I read "Nightkeepers" and...well, let's say I decided not to keep reading the series. But I did think of you while reading it--the Mayan mythology elements and world-building in the first book are very well done, but the story overall wasn't my cup of tea.

Shaida, I'll be sure to let you know what I think of Andersen's books. I'll probably let everyone know on the blog, too, of course. :) They really do sound more like my kind of book than yours, though.

Darn, I haven't been following your blog of late, which is too bad b/c I happen to have 2 copies of her first book (one of which Shaida had and read) that I got at RWA National. They were handing them out right and left there. Let me know if you didn't get it yet.
