photocontest1A photo contest I announced in my newsletter is running through July 31st. To enter, submit a photo of yourself, a friend, or even a pet with a copy of my book, A Stone’s Throw, by midnight EST on July 31st. The photo can feature a paperback or ebook copy on your Kindle or other eReader. The most creative photo will win a $25 gift card and be announced in my August 1st newsletter. The photo can either be emailed to debbiewriter@yahoo.com or posted to my author Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/debbie.delouise.author/

By participating, you agree to allow your photo to be posted on social media sites and acknowledge that Facebook and Mailchimp are not responsible for this contest. Only subscribers to my Ruff Drafts newsletter (separate from this blog) are eligible to win. To subscribe, fill out the pop-up form at https://debbiedelouise.wordpress.com and confirm the email you receive. If you have any problems or prefer me to subscribe you, please send me your email address and request to be subscribed.

Love Always Anthology Cover (1)There are many benefits to subscribing to the newsletter besides being eligible to enter the photo contest. By being a subscriber, you will be updated on my book news with exclusive excerpts and other content, receive notices about my appearance schedule and other book news. I also run monthly contests only open to subscribers. A new prize that will be offered in the future is an anthology with stories by myself and 15 other authors. This book, Love, Always, features my historical romance, The Seashell and the Stone. It’s a departure from my mysteries, but I think you will enjoy the tale of a sweet current-day romance with a touch of the supernatural. It is set both in current-day and 19th-century Victorian Cape May. DeLouise Teaser

Widowed librarian Alicia Fairmont needs answers…

After her husband is killed in a hit and run accident, Alicia travels upstate to his hometown of Cobble Cove, New York, hoping to locate his estranged family and shed light on his mysterious past. Anticipating staying only a weekend, her visit is extended when she accepts a job at the town’s library.

Secrets stretch decades into the past…

Assisted by handsome newspaper publisher and aspiring novelist, John McKinney, Alicia discovers a connection between her absent in-laws and a secret John’s father has kept for over sixty years. But her investigation is interrupted when she receives word her house has burned and arson is suspected, sending her rushing back to Long Island, accompanied by John.

Back in Cobble Cove, cryptic clues are uncovered…

When Alicia returns, she finds a strange diary, confiscated letters, and a digital audio device containing a recording made the day her husband was killed. Anonymous notes warn Alicia to leave town, but she can’t turn her back on the mystery—or her attraction to John.

As the pieces begin to fall into place, evidence points to John’s involvement in her husband’s accident. The past and present threaten to collide, and Alicia confronts her fears…

Has she fallen in love with her husband’s killer?

Ruff Drafts Newsletter

FREE AUTOGRAPHED BOOK2Did you know that I’ve started a newsletter that is separate from my blog and website? It’s also known as Ruff Drafts, but it features much more. Emailed to subscribers about twice a month, it features updates about my writing including my Cobble Cove mysteries. It also features exclusive content, contests, and special offers.

The first issue that was mailed March 1st, had an offer to new subscribers that entered them into a contest for an autographed book or $10 Amazon gift card (the choice of the winner). This contest is still going on through April 1st or until the newsletter has 100 subscribers (whichever comes first).

The next newsletter is being mailed some time next week, so if you are interested in participating in the contest, subscribe by filling out the pop-up sign-up form at https://debbiedelouise.wordpress.com. You will also need to confirm your subscription by clicking on the email verification you receive from MailChimp. If you have any problems subscribing, you just need to contact me with your email to add you to the list.

I hope you will subscribe to the newsletter. The next mailing will also feature an exclusive story and some special news about the sequel to A STONE’S THROW.
