Announcing WISHBONE, a unique short story giveaway

My newsletter subscribers already got a sneak peek at a new giveaway I'm running. Not subscribed yet? You might want to subscribe for future issues, as there are big things coming regarding NEW books! You can read the full Sept issue here.


If you follow me on twitter you might have heard me dropping hints about this giveaway, codename WISHBONE. Well, WISHBONE is a story. It's one-of-a-kind, meaning it only exists in one place, for one special reader. It's a short story, hand-written, about the winter when Juliet and Montgomery were children, and first found a puppy they named Crusoe. 

Interested? It gets better.

WISHBONE is written in a custom MADMAN'S DAUGHTER journal (pictured below). One winner will win the journal with the story handwritten and signed by me inside.

How did this idea come about?

One night I had the idea for a never-before-seen short story set in the Madman's Daughter world, and wrote it down. Instead of publishing it widely, I decided to send it to one (just one!) reader. It appears nowhere else but within the pages of this journal. Call it an experiment, to connect an author directly with a reader.

How to Enter
