Ellora's Cave Contest

Happy Saturday, all!
My publisher, Ellora's Cave, is running a new contest. Here's what the announcement straight from them:

"In preparation for our 10 year anniversary in 2010, we are launching a huge, fun contest today with fantastic prizes for readers and authors!

For details, check out our video on You Tube:
Or our website contest page:

Readers can enter to win Sony and Asus Netbook computers, gift certificates and free ebooks.

The contest has video, write-in and Twitter components. We encourage you to put the contest video on your websites and blogs, to link to the You Tube video or our contest page, to retweet our announcements and entries on Twitter and to promote the contest in any other way you can think of.

Contest runs through Dec. 31, and readers' choice polls will run on the Sex Talk blog (we'll let you know when). Winners will be announced in early 2010.

The video was shot at the 2009 Romantic Times Booklovers Convention in Orlando. The winner of this first round was Susan Clarke, who won an Apple gift certificate. Others appearing in this video are, in order of appearance Ashlyn Chase, Mari Freeman and her bf Mike, Renee Myer, Susan Clarke, and Tea Trelawny.
