Introducing.... (and book contest)



The one and only....Eileen Cook!!

Eileen's debut novel, UNPREDICTABLE, launched only last week and is already climbing Barnes & Nobles' Trade Paperback Romance Bestseller List!

Here's a description of UNPREDICTABLE from amazon.com:

Sophie Kintock isn't crazy, she just wants her guy back. And posing as a psychic to give his new girlfriend a face reading designed to break them up isn't going overboard, is it? Don't answer that.

Faking psychic powers turns out to be easy and fun, especially after a few lessons from Nick, the cute (if a bit nerdy) skeptic, who knows all the tricks of the trade. But her readings do a lot more than she could have predicted, and soon Sophie needs to figure out whether the answers lie in the stars-or in herself.


This book is getting great reviews. It'll have you laughing till you're crying or snorting. And, let's face it, life is tough enough these days. Many of you (not me because I live in sunny So Cal!) are dealing with the cold harsh snowy realities of winter. You know you need a little pick-me-up in your life. We all do. So, trundle off and grab yourself some fun and humor by buying at least one copy of UNPREDICTABLE.




For a hugely entertaining treat, hop over to Eileen Cook's blog, Just My Type. While there, you can offer her a flute of cyber bubbly.

I asked Eileen a bunch of pointed, hard-hitting, personal and embarrassing questions. Come back tomorrow and I'll post her shocking answers. (Translation: it's an interview about writing and publishing. :) )

AND we have a copy of UNPREDICTABLE to give away. So, post a comment here or on Eileen's blog or on BOTH (and we'll count you twice). Eileen and Child #4 can duke it out for who gets to choose the winner! Oh yeah, we'll choose the winner from comments left on our blogs today and tomorrow (Feb. 13 and 14).

I saw on Beth's blog that she won a book, so I thought I'd come on over to check you out. A book writer! And why isn't it going to be out until December '08? I know nothing about that process so I was just curious! I'm off to check out you blog more!

Pick me! Pick me! *channeling child #4's drawing powers to pull me from the list. I so want this book.

I am pretty sure I can totally take kid #4. I've been going to the gym.

Danita Cahill said...

Good luck taking the kid, Eileen. Sometimes they're spryer -- is that a word? -- than they look. My daughter can totally take me now. Can you say feeling old?

Anyway, big huge congratulations on your book launch. Weren't you in the Chick Lit Writers of the World RWA chapter? I'm not in it anymore, but used to be, and I get a special thrill everytime I see one of those ladies make it up the publishing food chain ladder. Wow, that's like a bad, double cliche, in't it?

Anyway, big WOOT for you, girl!
