Gemma Halliday

Auction for a Good Cause

on January 16, 2009

Gemma Halliday, author of the High Heels series of fun Romantic Suspense books, is doing something pretty darn cool. Upon learning that one of her young readers along with her mom recently became homeless, Gemma did more than just nod and say, “I’m sorry to hear that.” She put together an auction with some top notch items including editor pitches, critiques, web design, and, of course, lots of books. Not only is this your chance to help out someone in need, you might just find that editor you’ve been desperate to talk with. Or find a less expensive way to get that professionally designed website you’ve been talking about.

The auction runs January 19 thru 26 and will be hosted on the Romantic Inks website. Bid early and often and tell your friends. Just another example of the amazing people that make up this Romance community.

Trying to Win an ARC!

on April 25, 2008

And you can too. In case you don’t know, an ARC is an Advanced Reader Copy of a book not yet released. It’s sort of pre-final edits version and they are highly sought after items. The adorable Gemma Halliday is running a contest for a chance to win an ARC of the anthology THESE BOOTS ARE MADE FOR STRUTTING and all I have to do to qualify is promote her around the net. So…I’m promoting.

The great part is, you can do it too. If you want to check it out for yourself, click here. Gemma is the author of the refreshing and funny High Heels series and though I’ve only talked to her in blogland, I think she’s a total peach. Plus, she tells the best (most horrific!) dating stories. Makes me feel better about pulling my toe from the dating waters for a while. LOL!
