I’m amazed to be posting this news so soon. My second book, DOUBLE ENCHANTMENT, is already available for pre-order on Amazon.com! If you want to be the very first to get the book, here’s the link: http://www.amazon.com/Double-Enchantment-Kathryne-Kennedy/dp/0505527634/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1205445420&sr=1-1
And to celebrate, I’m having the first ‘magical jewel’ contest for DOUBLE ENCHANTMENT. Here’s the details:
FIRST 'Magical Jewel' contest for DOUBLE ENCHANTMENT
DOUBLE ENCHANTMENT is the second novel in the RELICS OF MERLIN series. Merlin used thirteen different jewels as a focus for thirteen mysterious spells, and the 'magical jewel' in DOUBLE ENCHANTMENT is a garnet. For this first contest, the prize is a 13 carat garnet necklace. (Go to: http://www.kathrynekennedy.com/contest.html for a photo and description of this 'magical' jewel.)
This contest is all about your friends. Just send your friend an email telling them about the RELICS OF MERLIN series (ENCHANTING THE LADY or DOUBLE ENCHANTMENT), and forward me a copy of that email to email@example.com. I will keep your friend's email address confidential, but I do need to verify that it's a valid email address.
How many times can you enter? That depends on how many friends you have.:} Please though, no spamming. You will be disqualified.
A winner will be randomly chosen using RandomNumber.Org, from all the entries. Contest ends May 31, 2008. Void where prohibited by law. You must be 18 years or older to enter. No prize substitution permitted. This contest is subject to all federal, state and local laws and regulations.
Another exciting bit of news is that ENCHANTING THE LADY got a wonderful review from the Chicago Tribune! It’s an honor just to be mentioned, but the reviewer also gave me a good review. He (yes, real men read romances ;}) said:
"Enchanting the Lady," the first book in Kathryne Kennedy's planned historical paranormal series, will cast its own spell over readers with its fabulously imaginative setting and charmingly original characters.
They also posted the column on their website, so if you want to read the whole review it’s here: http://www.chicagotribune.com/features/booksmags/chi-romancebw15mar15,1,6372309.story
And I’ll leave you with two more wonderfully written reviews:
My very best wishes,
