Sweet Magik Print Version Now Available! Giveaway Today!


I was surprised to get an email yesterday letting me know my latest Christmas novel, Sweet Magik, is now available in print! Release day for the digital format is still 11-4-11. I have mixed feelings about print books, as you all know. I am now addicted to my Kindle for various reasons....I love being able to adjust font size, leave bookmarks/comments for myself in the text, and pages don't snap shut while I'm reading. However, it is sort of cool to have a book in print, even if it is totally overpriced ($15!!!).

Since the print version is a bit pricey, I would love to give a copy away for free. Here are the rules for the giveaway....

1.) Leave a comment.
2.) Any old comment.
3.) Tell me about your dog, your husband's beard, your garden, what book you're reading right now.
4.) Just say hi.
5.) Make sure I have your email so I can get in touch if you win!
6.) Giveaway is open until Friday Oct 14.
7.) Have a nice day.

That's it! If you would like to read an excerpt, please visit my website....Penny Watson.

Here's the book blurb for Sweet Magik....it's the 2nd installment of the Klaus Brothers Series. Yep, those Klaus brothers! You know.....they live in the North Pole, deliver gifts all over the earth, get themselves into a boatload of trouble. Happy Reading!

SWEET MAGIK......


Oskar Klaus' job is killing him. Not even his favorite hobbies (extreme snowboarding and browsing old bookstores) are enough to snap him out of his funk. It's not easy living in the shadow of four successful older brothers and a father named Santa. Little does he know that a kiss on New Year's Eve is about to turn his life upside-down.

Kiana Grant's Manhattan life is a world away from her childhood in Oahu. She traded sunsets and surfing for a respectable career in library science, but Oskar Klaus is a temptation that's hard to resist. Before she knows it, she's in the midst of an outrageous adventure in the North Pole, dealing with mischievous elves, wicked demons, and a devastating attraction to Santa's youngest son.

There's just one problem...a bitter elf hell-bent on revenge threatens the future of everyone in the North Pole, even Santa himself...

Hi Penny! Big Congrats on being in Print! Very exciting to be able to flip paper pages that have your name on them ;-)Best of luck with this next step in your journey!

Obviously, I'd love to win a copy of your book, but not sure I can wait until the end of the week. I think I'll head over to the publisher and order my own copy. Best of luck ;-)

GABY said...

So cool you have a print book! I love kindle books but it's also good to read print books sometimes hehe.

I can't wait to read Sweet Magik!

Very exciting! Congrats, Penny.

Natascha said...

Hey! Congrats on the print book. That is awesome.
Well, I want to tell you that I am on the third book of the whole Eve Dallas/Roarke extravaganza. I know how you feel about Roarke and I can definitely see where you are coming from, but eventhough he isn't one of my top 10 favorite heroes, I still like him. Whenever I see Nora Robert's face on the back of the cover I can't help remember the impersonation your friend made of her at the NEWCRA last April. Cracks me up!

Mrs. Missive said...

Hi Penny! Are you signing the book? Either way enter me in the giveaway please. That is a fabulous cover. :)

Either way I will be buying the ebook in November.

Penelope said...

Thanks, Ladies!

Natascha....you traitor! You got on the I-Love-Roarke-Bandwagon. Ack! ("Get your ass in the chair and write the damned book!")

Miss Missive....Yep, I will be signing the book and including Romance Trading Cards, too!

Thanks Juju and Barbara!

Amber Skyze said...

Congrats on the new print book, Penny. I hear ya about the price. It amazes me how the publishers overprice print books. All mine are too expensive. :)

Geekamicus said...

Um, Penny, if I don't win your book, could you please give me a note to my husband telling him how vital it is for me to actually buy my own copy. Authors are like doctors, right? You can do that? It's not like I'm trying to get a day off of work...

Kari said...

OH, does this mean that Sweet Insipration will also be available in print? Hope so and can't wait to read Sweet Magik!

KB/KT Grant said...

I had no idea it was out in print! Congrats :)

Bells said...

Hello Penny! Congrats on the release of your book! It sounds like a great read and I love this cover. Please enter me into the giveaway.

I just finished Alien Proliferation by Gini Koch and am onto another book to read.

Nina Pierce said...

Congrats on the new book! I love that cover! I hear you on the cover price, but what's a small pub to do?

I'm a hold out for paper books and I'm happy this one is in print. Congrats!

Penelope said...

Amber....I would NEVER pay this much for a paperback. It's too bad that the POD books are so much. But I'm glad I have both print and digital this time....folks can choose which one they want!

Penelope said...

Geekamicus.....Haaa! Sure, I'll write a note! I'll use my "stern" voice...the one I try to use with Lucy when I take her for a walk! :^)

Penelope said...

Kari....SI won't be out in print unless I decide to self-pub it when the contract expires. Maybe in a couple of years? We'll see.

Penelope said...

@Kate, @Bells, @Nina....thanks, ladies! I hear you, Nina, about the small pubs, but I still think there must be a better way.

Sherry said...

Congratulations on your print book. I love my Kindle but there's some books that I want in print. I haven't read anything in the last week or so. I just can't figure out what I'm in the mood to read.

congratulations on the release Penny! I love both paper and e and flip between the two depending on access and price. Even as a kindle-aholic, I'm sure it must give you a real buzz to hold your book in print.

How fun! Not sure if I made it on here in time, and I'm going to buy the e-book anyway, but print would be fun too! Good luck!

Oh yeah-pets good, husband-beardy, and this year no garden-too much moving!

Can't wait to read it!

Penelope said...

@odderie....Yep, the cover model is mighty fine!

@mrsshukra...I even included a few sentences in Hawaiian (looked up on the internet of course!).

Lindsay...your husband is beardy????? LUCKY DUCK!
