Spread the word and win a cookbook!

My friend Ellery Adams and I would like to recruit you to spread the word about our July 3rd releases:

Murder on the Half Shelf: A Booktown Mystery - Lorna Barrett

Pies and Prejudice: A Charmed Pie Shoppe Mystery - Ellery Adams

And as our recruits, we want you to have a little fun. Here's how:

If you tweet, blog, write a  Facebook post, or mention our books on any website, Amazon's Listmania, or anywhere else on the Internet and send us the URL, and include YOUR FULL NAME and email address at, then you'll be entered in a drawing to win one of eight Cozy Chick Kitchen cookbooks (See the pink book on the bottom right with the cute girl holding the chocolate cake? Lots of yummy recipes are waiting for you).

Why do we need help spreading the word? Because this is my first time in hardcover and Ellery's first in an all-new series. Sometimes, these "firsts" could benefit from a little help. Help in getting pre-orders, help in going viral, help in creating that necessary buzz.

So many of you do this for us on a regular basis and we're super grateful, but why not win a prize while you're helping out this time?

Can't think of what to say?  Here's a sample tweet--just copy and past.  (But you can be as creative as you want!)

 Spread the word @LornaBarrett & Murder on the Half Shelf / @ElleryAdams and Pies and Prejudice & win a cookbook!

The contest ends on July 10th and you can enter multiple times as long as you submit a fresh entry each time.

Go on, start talking!
