And the Fun Begins...

Happy Cinco de Mayo! I hope your day is as beautiful where you are as it is here. I'll be spending as much of it outside as I can.

This week's winner of a signed ARC of TRANCE is:

Isi and Jas's Mom

Please shoot me an email with your mailing instructions to gerb (@) lindagerber (.) com and I'll get that sent out to you.

Be sure to come back on Friday with another GCC freebie featuring Jeri Smith-Ready and her brand new, just released book SHADE. You won't want to miss this one!
