Wild About You Countdown: Two Days!

Congrats to Martha of Mississippi who won the t-shirt and copy of Ian's book! Please come back next month, that would be Dec. 25th, Christmas!! I'll have to do a nice giveaway then! Many thanks for the comments and all your support! Big bear hug!

Our friendly, lovable were-bear, Howard Barr, will be released into the wild in two days!  I hope you can catch him!  Or if you have an e-reader, I hope you wake up with a grizzly bear in your bed!  To celebrate the release of Wild About You, we're giving away a T-shirt with the Wild About You cover art on front. Howard is modeling it for you. It's not often a bear will give you the shirt off his back!

The launch party is Tuesday night at Katy Budget Books. Howard wants to come with me, since he loves getting his photo taken with the ladies. If you contact KBB, you can order a signed book (and I will sign it however you like). You can also order signed backlist books or one of the cool Wild About You key chains, which I will initial and Howard will sign with his paw print.You can find out more, including KBB contact info, at http://katybooks.com/event/kerrelyn-sparks-launch-party-2. Also on Launch Day, please visit my Facebook page where you can see the Red Carpet Premiere of Wild About You. You never know which characters will walk the red carpet!  And there's even more fun for Launch Day!  Over at Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews, you'll see Howard's early attempts to write a fan letter to his heroine, Elsa.

If you're in the Seattle area, please come and see me when I drop by two Barnes & Noble stores to sign stock on Thursday, November 29th. They're expecting us, so no worries there!  I'll be at the B&N at Crossroads Shopping Center in Bellevue, WA at 5 pm and the downtown Bellevue B&N at 6 p.m.

I'll also be signing with Nora Roberts and other authors at the Turn the Page Bookstore in Boonsboro, Maryland on December 8th at noon. For more info, go to http://www.ttpbooks.com/

In addition to the Wild About You t-shirt, I'm giving away a signed copy of All I Want for Christmas is a Vampire. Isn't that a nice Christmas present?  And it's also the book where we first find out that Howard is a were-bear. I hope you enjoy hot, hunky, and handsome Howard!  Just leave a comment to be eligible to win the t-shirt and signed book. International entries are welcomed.

I had the opportunity to read a ARC of Wild About You and wanted to let you know I LOVED it! As a woman that is a bit on a tall side myself I adored Elsa! In a world where 'pixie- like' heroines are the ideal it was refreshing to read about someone I can relate to. Thanks so much for 13 wonderful reads. I look forward to whatever comes next!

Too bad Howard's Bears aren't doing so good this year. They need him back on the team!
Can't wait for Tuesday, (which is unusual to write unless you're a big reader).
Good luck with all your signings!

This has to be one of the best contests ever-Howard and Ian! Ian is one of my absolute favorites of the series and who doesn't love Howard...the man knows how to handle a bear claw or dozen. Kerrilyn, I hope you get around to getting to Indiana. I also wish you and Howie much success on your trips!

Sure wish I could make it to the Seattle signing(less than a 3 hour drive) but my daughter is moving this week and I am the only one in the family with a vehicle large enough to help, so no long day for myself this week. :(

I was one of the lucky ARC readers and the second I saw that I got approved I pounced on the book. It was great! Loved Howard, the villain was kind of an idiot but the aunts and the secondary characters totally made up for it! Thank you for writing.

Here's to more books in the series!

Aww, Howard Bear is super cute with his shirt. I am really looking forward to this book.

Interestingly enough, the first book of the series I read was All I want for Christmas is a Vampire. I borrowed it from the library and became hooked on the series.
