Game on! NAKED EDGE a DA BWAHA finalist

    I logged in to check my e-mail a few minutes ago and discovered that Naked Edge, voted Favorite Romantic Suspense by AAR readers in their annual poll, is a finalist for the 2011 DA BWAHA contest that’s run by Dear Author, Smart Bitches, and The TBR LLC.

    Is there something in the drinking water? Or is there something in the book? This is what I ask myself late at night.

    If you know anything about DA BWAHA, you know it’s modeled after March Madness, an event pertaining to basketball. Call it basketball playoffs if you want. Teams are arranged into brackets and compete until there’s a single champion. (Can you tell I’m not a sports reporter?)

    Naked Edge is one of eight finalists in the Contemporary category. But unlike basketball teams, novels can’t actually face each other down. Imagine the chaos in bookstores if they could! Flapping pages in the aisles, paper flying, broken bindings.

    But that’s where readers come in, voting on brackets that are sent in and tabulated. Put simply, if you participate enthusiastically and all of you who love Gabe vote for Naked Edge, it just might win. The competition is stiff. The other finalists are wonderful novels written by extremely talented authors. But I believe in you as much as you believe in me!

    The cool thing for readers is that this competition is loaded with prizes. Berkley, my publisher, is giving away an ARC of Breaking Point and a number of other novels. There are other cool prizes, as well, not just books. (But what’s cooler than books?)

    Motivated? Head over to the DA BWAHA website to read more about how to play, to see a list of prizes and finalists — and to get your game on.

    Please spread the word among other I-Team fans and Team Gabe members!

    So thanks to Dear Author, Smart Bitches and The TBR LLC for choosing Naked Edge as a finalist.

    And thank you for your support!

    Team Gabe members will want to stick around. Next week, we have our chat about Naked Edge.
