LASR Book of the Week Contest

Bound by Sunlight is up for this week’s LASR Book of the Week contest. The contest is based on the reviews, not on actually reading the books. My review from Mistletoe said “KB Alan pulls the reader into a world filled with magic and keeps you entertained until the end.” How cool is that?

Contest the First

My first contest!

A bunch of erotica authors and I just happened to be at the Hustler store in Hollywood, and I thought of you, my dear readers. I picked up a few items I thought you might enjoy, and then actually remembered that Valentine’s Day is coming up. So I thought, why not have a contest now, so that the winner can receive the prize in time for Valentine’s Day?

Here’s a pic of the prize. Valentine's Day GiftThere is the Sex & Chocolate book, Adult Mad Libs, Pocket Kama Sutra, Pocket Erotic – the Ecstatic Secrets of Sensual Massage, and 52 Orgasm Tips flashcards.

I’ll also give away a copy of either of my books, Perfect Formation or Alpha Turned, unless the winner already has them. In which case, they can choose any ebook I’ve pimped on my site (there are a bunch, just click on the pimpin’ tag at the bottom of this post to see them all).

So, the contest. Comment below and you’ll be entered once. Email the response to one or both of the following for additional entries, for a maximum of three per person, to kb at kbalan.com. DO NOT put the answers in the comments below, or you will get zero entries in the contest. Please add something like “Contest” in the subject line. You’re also welcome to use the contact form here.

1. Tell me the name of any character from any of my works in progress (in other words, not from my published books). These can be found fairly easily in my blog posts.

2. Tell me the name of one of the review sites that has reviewed either of my published books. These can be found on my website.

All comments/emails must be received by Friday February 5th. I’ll announce the winner on Saturday the 6th and as long as the winner gets me their address by Sunday, I’ll put the package in the mail on Monday to make sure you have it by Valentine’s Day, in case you want to make use of any of it. 😉

I don’t mind sending internationally, but don’t guarantee delivery by the 14th. Actually, I don’t guarantee that domestically either, just that I’ll get it in the mail by the 8th. I’ll email the selected ebook late on the 13th or early on the 14th.

You don’t have to say anything special in the comments, but if you want, you can tell me what you plan to do for Valentine’s Day. While life is subject to change, as of now my plans are to stay in my pajama’s all day, possibly do some writing, read an erotic romance (any suggestions?) and attend the CAPA awards at the Romance Studio (Did I mention I was nominated for best BDSM book of 2009?!?! I did, but I’ll mention it again, because it’s pretty freaking exciting).

How’s that for a first contest? Did I forget anything?

Interview with The Smutketeers!

The Smutketeers were kind enough to pop my interview cherry. Technically, they’ve popped my contest cherry, too, as we’ll be giving away an ebook copy of Perfect Formation to one commenter, and I’ve never done that, either. They were very gentle…it only hurt for a second. 😀  Check it out here!
