RT Booklovers Convention Giveaway!

For all of us who can't make it to the RT Booklovers Convention in CA this week I have the next best thing - A CONTEST!

Everybody is going crazy for Romance Trading Cards these days and I have four sets from the authors who are attending the convention to giveaway!
 For more information on trading cards go to Romance Trading cards. They are always adding new authors and they are participating in several charity auctions in the upcoming months.

Set one: Blades of the Rose & Collision Course by Zoe Archer

My set of trading cards are full of action, adventure and romance.  It includes four sexy, daring heroes from the BLADES OF THE ROSE series! The Blades are a secret organization dedicated to finding and protecting the world's magic from exploitation.  Also included in my set of trading cards is the heroine of my new sci-fi romance from Carina Press, COLLISION COURSE.

Set two: Butterfly Swords and The Taming of Mei Lin by Jeannie Lin

The collectors set of 4 cards features Ai Li and Ryam from BUTTERFLY SWORDS as well as Mei Lin and Shen Leung from the linked short story, THE TAMING OF MEI LIN. The cards were designed to look similar to RPG gaming cards such as Magic: The Gathering or Yu-gi-oh cards. Each card includes my personal chop featuring my real name in Chinese characters in the corner just like I always use at signings. I wanted to offer something a little extra to readers so I included the character names in Mandarin as well as a little bit more in depth background for each character that may not have been included in the stories. When read all together, I hope the cards show how these two couples are linked together across cultures and generations.Collectors will have something to enhance their experience with Butterfly Swords and The Taming of Mei Lin and perhaps be intrigued enough to learn more if they haven't yet read them.

Set three: The Guardian series by Meljean Brook

The Guardian series is an urban fantasy romance series, and the Guardians are humans who have been given angelic powers and protect mankind and vampires from demons. The demons, led by Lucifer, are definitely evil -- there won’t be any romances or happily-ever-afters for them in this series. The trading cards feature the heroines of my three latest books in the series: Demon Forged, Demon Blood, and the upcoming Demon Marked. The first is Irena, a former Roman slave and one of the oldest Guardians; the second is Rosalia, who was raised by a demon and is a former nun; and the third is Ash, who has no memory at all and doesn't know who she is (but her glowing red eyes give her a clue that she's not human.)
