PA Book Release Contest and Pay-It-Forward Contest Winner

Well, there's a new book in town. :-)

And to help it along a bit, I'm having a multi-prize contest. To participate in this contest, purchase a copy of Private Arrangements in the first 2 weeks of its release (3.25.08—4.7.08). Send me a scan of your receipt to writer sherry thomas at gmail dot com, with the subject “ARC Contest”, or send me a physical copy of your receipt to Sherry Thomas, P.O.Box 201372, Austin, TX 78720-1372. Three winners will each receive an advance copy of Delicious, my August 2008 release. And three more entrants will each receive, as a consolation prize, a beautiful Private Arrangements t-shirt.

The drawing will be held on May 1, 2008.

And now, the victim winner of the query consultation contest is--drum roll please--CM. Please contact me at writersherrythomas at gmail dot com to claim your prize. (And please be a little patient with me as I must wrap up copyedits on Delicious in
the next couple of days as well as a number of other PA publicity-related items.)

Wow, Sherry--B&N sent Private Arrangements to me last week. I didn't realize it was early. Was that naughty of them?

In any case, it's seemed like a long wait to me. I've been looking forward to it for a long time, and I hope your new release weeks are smashing!

Wow, it's today already. I'll be checking out my bookstores to get my copy. I so want to win an ARC of Delicious (I'm very impatient you know). It was a year ago that I was first introduced to 'Schemes of Love' and the release date was at the time, November of 2007. I remember when I found out it was pushed to March. I thought, Good Lord, I can't possibly wait that long for it. And God willing, I didn't have to. I hope I won't have to wait until August to read Delicious!!!

Enjoy your release day Sherry!

Happy release day. And I can't believe I won!

Thank you, Sherry!

Sherry, will PA be released as an e-book (non Kindle)?

Sherry Thomas said...


Awful naughty of them. :-)


Thank you!


I always like the looks of a happy victim. :-)


RandomHouse.com provides a
page of links
to ebook retailers. But I don't think everyone one of them carries PA. I don't see it on Fictionwise. It's there on
. Not sure which is your preferred vendor, but yes, it is available in non-kindle formats. Hope this helps.

Congrats, Sherry! Hope it's a smashing debut.

Hi, I've discovered you through Dear Author and The Good, The Bad, and The Unread. I hope to pick up a copy of PA at your signing on April 5th - not much before the contest deadline ends!

Sherry Thomas said...




Oh, dear. I didn't really expect anyone I didn't know to show up at the book signing. Now I'll have to find my lipstick somewhere. :-)

I'll be delighted to meet you.

Mia Serene said...

Sherry, I've already emailed you my fangirly praises along with my entry to the ARC contest under another of my online names, but I figured I'd also share a link to my more coherent public review with you and my fellow blog readers.

It's here: http://miaserena.livejournal.com/5146.html

Thanks again for a marvelous read; congrats on a great book!

Hee hee :D

Liviania said...

Haha, don't worry about the lipstick - I rarely bother with it myself.

Sherry Thomas said...

Mia Serene,

I'm not quite sure I was really able to read your lovely review of PA. My eyes kind of lose focus before really extravagant praise--I think it is probably a defense mechanism of some sort to prevent my ego from swelling correspondingly. :-) But thank you for the extravangant praise and thank you for taking the time to write it.

Mia Serene said...

Thanks for the reply Sherry. I will try to tone it down next time, hee :)

Congrats CM for winning!

And wow, Sherry, I just loved PA! There aren't enough words of praise and fangirl love I have for your novel. Totally feel like how you did in your review of Bettie Sharpe (sp.).

Actually that is a ::big smile::.
