Newsletter Contest and Giveaway

small_giveawayHi everyone! In celebration of the launch of our Weekly Newsletter (and relaunch of the Daily Digest), I am hosting a giveaway open to all new and existing newsletter subscribers.  If you subscribe to both, you get two entries!

So before we go too far, what are these newsletters I am talking about anyway?


  • Daily Digest: This is a digest of all the blog posts each day. It is automatically sent out at 5:00 pm EST and will include all new content released since the last installment. The Digest is a great way to be sure that you don’t miss any of our great content!
  • Weekly Newsletter: The newsletter has all kinds of great information romance readers want to know! It has a section on Joyfully Jay blog news and events, one on general Romance Land news, and one for sales and other promotions so you can get all your goodies for a great deal!

To sign up for either newsletter (or both), go to our Newsletter Registration page. If you already subscribe to one or the other, you can update your preferences by clicking on the link at the bottom of any newsletter and make your changes/additions.

If you have information that you think would be great for our Weekly Newsletter, I’d love to hear it! Just send me your tips through our Newsletter Submission Form and I will do my best to include it!


So, what can you win? I came back from RT with a bunch of books and so I am offering three prize packs for three lucky winners! Unfortunately, the paperback prize packs can only go to U.S. residents because international book shipping is astronomical. But I do also have an all ebook prize pack as well so you international folks can get in on the fun.  To enter, follow the Rafflecopter link below. Please be sure to include the email address that you used to register for the newsletter so I can view your subscription information.

Paperback Prize 1 (U.S. only):

  • Bad Idea by Damon Suede
  • Cop Out by K.C. Burn
  • Tales of the Curious Cookbook anthology
  • Special Effect by Russell J. Sanders

Paperback Prize 2 (U.S. only):

  • The Two Gentlemen of Altona by Lisa Henry and J.A. Rock
  • Bad Idea by Damon Suede
  • The Pack or the Panther and Wolf in Gucci Loafers by Tara Lain
  • Vulnerable by Amy Lane

E-books Prize 3 (U.S./International):

  • Trowchester Blues by Alex Beecroft
  • The Two Gentlemen of Altona by Lisa Henry and J.A. Rock
  • After the Fall by L.A. Witt
  • Mark of the Gladiator by Heidi Belleau and Violetta Vane

How to Enter

Sign up for one or both of our newsletters.  Then comment below with the following information:

  • Which newsletter(s) you are subscribed to
  • What email address you used to sign up (if it is the same email from which you are leaving your comment and you don’t want to post it publicly, that’s fine, just note that in your comment)
  • If you are U.S. or International

I will pick three winners and based on the order they are selected, the winners can pick their choice of available prize. Be sure to check out the fine print below.

The contest closes on Sunday, June 7th, at 11:59 pm EST.
