It’s giveaway week!
First up, I’m giving away one e-copy of any of my books in the Tattoo Week event over at Riverina Romantics blog. (Draw closes June 8th)
The second offering is courtesy of my lovely friend, Violet Duke. She’s giving away a copy of BODY OF WORK on her Facebook page, so head over there for a chance to win. (Draw closes midnight, Hawaii Standard Time, June 4th)
Having a new book out in the world is a nail-biting time. Has it hit all the major e-tailers yet? Is anybody buying it? Will people love it…or hate it? It’s enough to make an author (at least this one) go a little bit bonkers.
But, the first few reviews are in for BODY OF WORK, and I’m so thrilled, I keep reading them over and over.
There’s this awesome one from Nina of Nina’s Literary Escape. (Click the link to read the full review.)
“In the end, reading Body of Work was a total enjoyment for me. Readers looking for a hot book with explosive sex, a sexy six-foot-two ginger-haired alpha hero, and a fun & flirty story, Body of Work is the book for you.”
And this one from MaggieReadsRom. (Click the link to read the full review.)
“I really enjoyed Karla Doyle’s third book. I was expecting Cassie and Brian and their story to be just as good as the other books and I am happy to report it was. It was definitely hotter than the other books (this is always a good thing) and with every book Doyle’s writing is getting even better.
What doesn’t change is the playful, humorous voice that comes through via her characters and their interactions.”
Thank you, Nina and Maggie, for taking the time to read and review BODY OF WORK, and for the huge smiles you gave me!
On Twitter today, author Cara McKenna (who is awesome in so many ways) posted a link to a site called How Many of Me. It’s kind of cool. Type in a name and the find out how many people in the USA share that name.
First I searched Karla Doyle. There are 19 “of me” out there. Go ahead, make a joke about that. You know you want to. 😉
HowManyOfMe.com There are
people with the name Karla Doyle in the U.S.A.
Then I decided to search some of the characters from my books and works in progress.
From MORE THAN WORDS:
There are 189 people named Travis Graham and 1 named Calli Yates.
From GAME PLAN:
There are 4 people named Mason Lang and 1 named Andie Finch.
From my book currently on submission, tentatively titled BODY OF WORK:

And from my current work in progress, as yet untitled:

Neat, right? 🙂
