Widget Me… Win an ARC

If you make me a widget, you can win an ARC.

Are you a widgety-sort of person?

I want a widget.

But the problem is when I start messing with widgets, I spend way too much time on them. Plus, I’m not particularly good at them.

So…. maybe somebody else can widget me. I want a widget for my romantic suspense BROKEN, due out in March 2, 2010.

Would you like to make me a widget and get entered into a contest for an ARC of BROKEN? If so… make me a widget. If you want to design the widget using something like sprout (or similiar) that’s fine. I just want something I can post to facebook, myspace… *G* If you are graphically skilled and make a widget that would post to this wordpress blog, that would be even better. Because I really want one I can post to the blog and a lot of widgets don’t post at wordpress blogs.

I would like the widget to have the cover, a link to the excerpt ( http://shilohwalker.com/excerpt_broken.htm ) and if possible, the release date (3.2.10) or a countdown.

Post a link on where I can find the widget. Then you get entered for a chance to win an ARC of BROKEN, due out in March.

Blurb: (In case you might wanna use…)

Quinn Rafferty is working as a bounty hunter and bail bondsman in St. Louis when a new neighbor catches his eye. He’s tempted by her beauty—but he knows from experience that anyone desperate enough to live in his building is damaged goods. Besides, he has his own soul to mend before he can worry about anyone else.

Sarah McElya is on the run, but not for the usual reasons a woman goes on the lam. She’s not an abused wife, and she’s not a criminal. But she does have a plan for her future. And as much as she finds herself attracted to her gruff, tough neighbor, she can’t risk telling him the secrets she’s hiding. There’s just too much at stake.
Driven to desire…
But Quinn must get closer to Sarah when she turns out to be the target of his new missing persons case, and he discovers that there is something more complex and dangerous to her than he thought. Now, both Quinn and Sarah will have to expose their true feelings—as well as their fragile hearts—if they hope their love will survive…

Here’s a copy of the cover:


Here’s a link to a larger version of the cover...

As I’m wigdgetally-disadvantaged and this is actually helping me out, there aren’t too many rules with this one…you can make multiple widgets if you like.

I’ll choose the one I like best. The only rule is that I do ask the winner keep the ARC is his/her possession until the book is released and that you agree to respect author copyright by not scanning/uploading a digitalized copy to a filesharing site, etc.

For those who aren’t widgety-inclined, I’ll try to do a more general contest closer to the release date. 🙂 Thank you!


Okay, so end of repost.  I’ve only gotten two widgets and then one  image that I can use here on the blog. Photobucket

And the links to the widgets…
Widget 1
Widget 2

(new…added. 12/23) Oh, yay… another widgety-type thing-one that will work for here on the blog even.

So far, the two ladies who entered have a really good chance of winning, ya know?

What can you win?

FYI, my ARCs are REALLY limited this time around-I’ve only got eight on hand.  I will be sending e-ARCs to a select few, but I mean a very select few.  If you want to win an ARC and you are graphically/widgetally inclined, this could be your best bet.  I’ll only be doing on or two (probably one) reader giveaway here at the blog.

And speaking of e-ARCs, if you’ve received/reviewed an e-ARC of mine in the past and would be interested in reviewing another one, can you save my brain and email me (shilohwalker(at)gmail.com)?  I will be going through my list, but if I know you’re interested, I’m more likely to get in touch with you quicker.  Please note…I do reserve e-ARCs for reviewer/blogger use only and it’s at my discretion.
