The UPS man brought me a nice surprise earlier this week–my copies of the new edition of THE ELEVATOR.  

Yes, mass market ELEVATORs will soon be rolling out on trucks across the fruited plain.  What is mass market?  It’s the usual, smaller size of paperback books, the size you often see in grocery stories, airport bookstores, the corner market.  Mass market books are less expensive, naturally, and this particular book is marked at retail of only  $6.99.  
The book is being published by Mira, another imprint of Harlequin.  The larger trade size was published by Steeple Hill, another Harlequin imprint, but my editors thought that my work might appeal to the general market as well as the Christian market.  So . . . this book, THE FACE, and LET THE DARK COME will all be published as Mira mass market titles. 
I’d love to send a couple of copies (one for you, one for a friend) to one of you.  I’m thinking of a number (code: MDAAT), and the xth person to leave a comment below will get two free copies.  U.S. addresses only, please.  I’ll pop in and let you know when the number has been reached.

    Hey! I have a feeling it’s not 1, but I’d love to read The Elevator. I sent out our copy to a reviewer before I had a chance to read it. 🙂

    Ooh! Love this book! Would love to win. I have a hunch wht the code is, except the T is throwing me!

  3. Dazer Linda G

    I would love to own this book. I will not allow one of my sisters to read it. She has always had a fear of elevators. Of course I don’t like down escalators so we are lots of fun to going shopping with.

    Have a feeling the number is in the 20s, so jump in, everyone, and get these comments growing! Clyde

    P.S. LOVED “The Elevator” and think it would make a fabulous movie. Are you listening, Hallmark??? cot

    Congratulations, Dicannon! As the ninth commenter, you have won the books. Please send me your mailing address through the “contact” page on my web site.

    The code was “My Dogs’ Ages Added Together” and since Charley is five and Babe four, that equals nine. 🙂

    Thanks for playing, everyone!


    P.S. I give the “code” so y’all won’t think I’m arbitrarily picking names. And to remind myself of whatever number I chose. 🙂

    Argghh! This is the 2nd time I’ve been the comment just before the winner! 🙂
