Happy Birthday, Aurora!

There are two Aurora's about to celebrate a birthday. One is the adorable granddaughter of my good friend. The other is an imprint of my publisher.  For the first birthday, Aurora is getting stuff: presents, cake.  For the second, Aurora Regency wants to give you stuff.

And so do I!

It's been quite a year. I now have four novels published by Musa/Aurora Regency. Recently my first romantic mystery debuted. Death by Scandal has achieved some fantastic reviews and is a Hera book club choice. On October 14th, my third Mad Hatterly book Civilizing Frances made her bow. 

To celebrate, I'm giving away two books: a copy of Death by Scandal and a copy of Civilizing Frances. How do you win my contest? Simple. You just follow my blog and then leave me a comment below. Make sure you leave an email address so I can contact you if you win. I'll leave this post up all week and just update it with news so be sure and check back. More goodies and fun will follow.

But wait! There's more! For just 9.99 you get the...

  11. Sebrina, you know my life! I've been known to feed cows in my jammies. They really don't care if I'm in PJ's or not. They just want food.
