I am sooo excited to be part of the Coffin Hop this year!  There are 100 authors participating which means YOU have a chance to win some really cool prizes like a Nook, gift cards, books, t-shirts, and even a chance to have your name in a novel!

Although I'm not a horror writer...YET, I am a mystery/thriller writer.  I write the Sloane Monroe series and currently have two books published: Black Diamond Death and Sinnerman.  Both are .99 as a promotion for this contest (book three in the series, I Have a Secret, will be released Spring 2012). 

My first novel, Black Diamond Death, entered the top #100 in two mystery categories six weeks after its release and has been a bestseller for over six months, and my second, Sinnerman, entered the top #100 sixteen days after its release and is doing well.    

Enough about my books for now...let's get to the contest!  I am giving away two prizes:

Prize #1: One autographed copy of either Black Diamond Death or Sinnerman (your choice)

Prize #2: One $20 gift card to

Here's how to win...

Just for stopping by and "blog hopping" you are eligible for one entry in prize #1.  All you need to do is EMAIL ME with your name. 

To be eligible for prize #2, purchase a copy of Sinnerman (which is priced at .99 for the rest of this month) and EMAIL ME the answer to these two questions:

1. In chapter 29, where does Giovanni take Sloane?

2. In chapter 42, what part of Park City does Decklan Reids live in?

These chapters are short, and it should only take about five minutes to find the answers.  Once you have them, EMAIL ME.  You will be entered to win prize #1 AND #2, AND you will be entered five times for the $20 gift card.

As an added bonus, anyone who signs up to follow my blog will receive two additional entries in the contest.

And don't forget to return back to the BLOG HOP once you're done here and keep on hoppin!  I will announce the winners on my site and contact them by email on November 1st.
