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. 🙂 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. 🙂

Thanks! Have a great weekend!

    Im sure its not on the first page but I really want to win!

  2. Amanda

    I was gonna say, I doubt it’s on page 2. But I’ll be back!

  3. Accidental Poet

    And if I win, you can deliver my copy in September …

  4. Marla Taviano

    So, it’s okay to keep coming back as long as we take turns? How fun!

  5. Kari

    Just taking another shot!

  6. jan

  7. Kay

    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.

  8. Kristine dB

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

  9. Angela

    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!


  10. Pam Meyers

    I’d love a free copy of the book. Hope this is the right page!


  11. Richard Mabry

    Realizing it’s not necessarily a “lucky number,” I’ll leave comment #13. Thanks.

  12. C.J. Darlington

    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.

  13. Lynda

    Did I hear “free book”??? I’m just finishing up The Elevator, so I’ll need another Angie-fix real soon! BTW- lovin’ The Elevator!

  14. Kathy

    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!

  15. Kathy

    P.S. I just just opened the box of my new books and it was someone else’s book! What a bummer!

  16. Two Sisters

    Count me in! 🙂

    Kathy, that is a funny story about it being somebody else’s book. Bummer!

    Heading out the door – one last chance! Clyde

  20. AmyB

    Here’s to hoping it’s me!


  21. Nicole

    I’ll guess page 28.

  22. AmyB

    Here I am again.


  23. Linda G

    Count me in for this “contest”

    I’m not here, I’m writing a novel.

    Brynn squared his shoulders and knocked firmly on Kharfel’s door.


  25. Ane Mulligan

    Great idea, so here I am. LOL I’ve caught mistakes like that when reading a galley. I emailed the publicist and let them know. :o)

  26. AmyB

    Third times the charm?

  27. Pam Meyers

    Here I am again. Maybe this is the page. I hope so.

    “I want to carve the cross for my father’s grave.”

    Me again! Clyde

    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.

  31. Kay

    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.
    Angie, if you have time to read it,feel free to correct me if my interpretation is messed up!

  32. AmyB

    How about this time?

  33. Accidental Poet

    Brynn took one look at Kirna and headed for the loft. There’s more than one way through a locked door.

  34. AmyB

    Come on, we’re almost to fifty!

  35. Kristine dB

    Me again – I guess since this book is rolling out earlier than it was supposed to I better get it on order for our stores!

  36. Accidental Poet

    Kharfel smoothed a long thick eyebrow and shook his head slowly.
    “Your father was a village elder, and you’re not even an official apprentice. It will never be allowed.”

  37. AmyB

    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!

  38. Accidental Poet

    Brynn lifted his chin. “No-one has to know. Give me the wood and I’ll have the cross to you by sundown. If it’s not good enough, you’ll still have time to do another one.”

  39. AmyB

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

  40. Angela

    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! 🙂

    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!


  41. Kay

    I also noticed that the AC guy has a familiar name!

  42. mrseagen

    well I’d be silly to not get in on this 🙂

  43. jan

    oops! misunderstood the question!
    can’t believe that i guessed the page number without having the book, though! lucky guess! anyways, congratulations to the winner!

  44. Accidental Poet

    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!

    Susan, who is currently locked up in a hotel room a few hours from home, doing some actual writing.

  45. VAIL

    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?

  46. CrownLaidDown

    Awww, I missed it, but I will be first in line to purchase it here in Colorado!

    PS I just gave away another two of your books to my sister-in-law…a new reader and fan 🙂

  47. Lorie

    I’d love to win too!
