Magdalene, the third book in the Dunham series, will be released on Sunday, April 24, 2011. This is the last book in the series with contemporary characters; book four, Dunham, is an historical and book five, tentatively titled Delilah, is post-apocalypse.

For this, I thought it would be fun to have a contest. The grand prize winner will receive an Easter basket full of goodies pertaining mostly to Magdalene, and five runners up will win a trilogy ebook. Here’s the grand prize:

(Click to make big; a couple of the items are not shown.)

1. Print copies of The Proviso, Stay, and Magdalene, all signed,

2. Two canisters of Jacques Torres hot chocolate (one milk and one spicy),

3. Magdalene mug and mousepad,

4. One new CD of Carmina Burana,

5. A thumb drive with all three books plus their playlists,

and

6. A super secret and sexy prize hinting at what Mitch and Cassie might have done in a scene I never wrote…

…all in a nice Easter basket that will arrive at the grand prize winner’s doorstep at least a week before the release date. (Even if you live out of the country. I can do that. Because I’m in charge.)

2011-04-04 UPDATE: I failed to remember that many of the songs on the playlists are full albums, so instead of burning them to the stick, and in addition to Carmina Burana (orchestral version), these will be included as full (new) CDs: The Piano (Michael Nyman), Messiah (Handel), Nutcracker (Tchaikovsky), and the Rach 3 (Rachmaninoff). (Unfortunately, the chamber version of Carmina Burana that I have is an import and very hard to get.)

The five runners up will receive their ebooks at the close of the contest.

But every contest has rules, right?

1. Post about Magdalene and link to this blog post anywhere on the web.

2. Come back here and comment on where you posted it.

3. The more places you link from, the more chances you have to win. (One link per comment.)

4. The contest runs through midnight, April 10, 2011, US Central Daylight Saving Time (Chicago).

5. If you’re related to me or you worked on the book, you’re not eligible. I will know who you are. *ahemDudeahem*

That’s it.

I’ll use random.org to pick the grand prize winner and five runners up.

  12. Hi – got you going out on Facebook again !!! I’m a friend of R.J. Keller — and if she says you’re the bomb – then you are. Looking forward to seeing if I can come up a winner.

  16. Hi – I don’t know if a pre-emptive strike on AllAboutRomance counts? I posted this on March 20th:

    Really looking forward to the book.

  17. I love Dhympna, but I would go all stabby on her in a hot minute to win this. Having experienced the hot, velvety goodness of The Proviso and Stay (yeah the outtakes, too) I am primed and ready for Magdalene.

  19. I tweeted and posted to Facebook. This prize package is just so cool. I love the way everything relates to the books. Even the Carmina Burana grabs me. ;-) And I love having both print and e-versions.

  30. knittingknots

    just tweeted your blog entry, since you mentioned it again….

  31. WOOT Magdalene is nearly here!
    Happy chair dance all over the place!!

    Okkies, I tweeted and blogged, but not sure if the blog counts, as it has many social issues, mainly from the cruel neglect I have shown it. :(

  32. I retweeted! I cannot wait for this book (as you know *g*)

  33. Damn, I am late to the party. . . I blame my new and grueling schedule–FT job and FT school do not leave time for much else. I haven’t even run the vac in two weeks, fer cryin’ out loud!

    As your evil opposite, I’m probably not even eligible, but you know I’m going to pimp you–twitter and FB accomplished!

    Really excited for the next book–and as ever, so proud of you I could burst. xo!

  34. Tweeted! :D
