Okay, so you knew it was coming, but it’s here! Right before I left Florida, the UPS truck pulled up with a box of books–copies of DOESN’T SHE LOOK NATURAL, to be precise. I was surprised, because I thought the book didn’t release until October . . . which may be the case in some locales, but I suspect copies are rolling out all across the country even now.

So . . . I need to give away a book. ๐Ÿ™‚ And here’s how we’ll do it.

There is a mistake in the book (my editor suggested I change a name–I did change it, but I only changed it once, and the name occurred three times on p. X?X And none of the copy editors caught the mistake, either.)

So–whoever leaves the X?Xth comment to this post will win a free copy of the book. I’ll give you a hint–the number is less than fifty. I’m not babysitting the computer all day (busy teaching at a conference), so I’ll count up the comments and announce the winner at some point over the weekend. I’ll mail the book to the winner when I get home.

Remember to wait until someone else leaves a comment before posting twice–it’s nice to take turns. ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks! Have a great weekend!

~~Angie

    I know the answer because I bought a copy today! And I am interrupting my regularly scheduled reading for it.
    I went to the book store looking for the Elevator, which they still don’t have, and there was this lovely little book! I was very surprised to see it. This is a teeny, tiny little bookstore I’m talking about.
    And I had them order the Elevator for me.

    I finally ordered the Elevator for our store here in town; now I just have to wait for it to arrive!

    Thanks for playing, everybody. And remember–you have to leave the xxth comment, not just guess the page number. (I know that’s harder, but that’s the challenge.) Good luck!

    Well, I hope the mistake didn’t happen this early in the book for your sake. Boy, that must be a pain to work so hard and then have an error like that show up.

    Hi Angie. Did you give me that book at ICRS? If so, I’m going to take it with Monday when I fly to Haiti. Love those errors that get by everyone!

    Eureka!

    Braith should have been apprenticed to Corbin! Brynn is the one who realizes this, because he can “hear” what Braith is thinking, because Braith doesn’t know he can mindspeak.

    I posted on my blog about Doesn’t She Look Natural. Not a review or anything. I’m not finished with it yet. Just an observation.

    If you haven’t read Angela’s series called “Heirs of Cahira O’Connor”, you are seriously missing out. I started a book club with this series and we love it! We just got our 3rd book in the series (The Velvet Shadow) and we can’t wait to talk about it.

    Okay bye!

    The first book I read of Angela’s was “Unspoken”. I was hooked from then on.

    And we have a winnah! Accidental Poet, AKA Susan P, who has been charming us with lines from her novel-in-progress, wins because the mistake is on page 39! Susan, I’ll bring your copy when I come to Canada next month! ๐Ÿ™‚

    And I’m so proud of you for still working through this distraction!

    Thanks for playing, everyone! And here’s hoping that the first printing sells out quickly so the CORRECTED copies will soon be available!

    oh that’s great news.

    And “Proud of me”? Sheesh. I figured it I *wasn’t* working on my novel, you’d give my prize to someone else!

    I would love a copy of this book! I always wondered, when I do find errors in books, should I keep to myself or email author?
