Come see my new pretty conference banner & win a prize #giveaway #swag #OIBF2017

I finally ordered a vertical banner for use at conferences. Sweet ‘n Spicy Designs, who does most of my book covers, designed the banner. (She did all the covers in the sidebar except for Krinar’s Desire & Embrace the Romance).  I loved the banner so much, I had Sweet ‘n Spicy do a bookmark too.

The banner is almost 7 feet tall. Of course, I want my cyborgs to be lifesize. Wouldn’t you?

To win a mini version of this banner, scroll down to the instructions at the end of this post.

The banner will make its public debut at the Ozarks Indie Book Fest Oct. 19-22 in Springfield, Missouri. I’ll be selling/signing books and speaking on newsletters and street teams. Reader tickets are only $10. You can get them here.

Prize giveaway ~ win a bookmark!

I needed a banner I could use for years, so I wanted it to be “generic,” rather than targeting a specific book. The hero/heroine on the banner come from two different books. To win a bookmark, tell me which two book covers the models are on, and I’ll send you a free bookmark! I will mail internationally.
Email your answer to and put “bookmark” in the subject line. Be sure to include a mailing address. Contest ends Friday, Aug. 18. Offer good while supplies last.
Need a hint? You can find the books by clicking on the book links in the header of this website or by visiting my Amazon Author page.
