Bonded By Blood Characters - Cailin MacDougalBio: Cailin MacDougal

Tagger-Toting Hellion

As a toddler, Cailin took to Broderick immediately and she became the daughter he dreamed of having. Growing up as the adopted daughter of a Vamsyrian, though, had its trauma and tribulations. Taking matters into her own hands, she insisted her father teach her hand-to-hand combat.

However, twirling daggers became second nature and wielding a needle for embroidery a pretty scary task now. How’s a girl in early Renaissance supposed to woo her betrothed when she can’t even run a household or stitch a cushion to save her life?

Most Popular Quote from Cailin MacDougal

“Unless you wish to keep your private jewels intact,” she warned, “I suggest you keep your distance, sir.” With her dagger at his groin, she tilted the silver-plated blade up to make her point.
Said to James Knightly in Midnight Captive, Book 2 of the Bonded By Blood Vampire Chronicles  – Click to Tweet

Facts About Cailin MacDougal NOT in the Books

Cailin lived a life of fear in spite of being surrounded by love. With Angus Campbell always trying to hurt Broderick by hurting those he loved, their lives were always in danger. At the age of fourteen, Cailin wrote this in her journal:

“I love sailing across the sea, screeching with excitement at the dips and drops of the boat going over the waves and the salty water splashing on my face. Out there, no one can harm me and I’m not looking over my shoulder, wondering who is shadowing me or who is trying to kill me. On the water, I am with my father and mother and the people we trust and love. We laugh, play games, and tell stories. And when my father holds my mother as if she is the most precious being on earth, when I see the love they have for each other that goes deeper than their touch, I weep tears of joy that she has found her soul mate. Although it is sad for me, I’m okay with it. It’s not meant for me and I cannot be selfish to hate what she has just because it was meant for her. Even though James and I are betrothed, I cannot allow myself to think we’ll be together because marrying him would put his life in danger.”

Midnight Eclipse - Book 4 of the Bonded By Blood Vampire ChroniclesBook Blurb

Broderick MacDougal follows the familiar yearning of his soul to a fierce warrior who is as seductive as a siren at sea – and she is just as deadly. The world of the supernatural opens to Broderick as he not only finds himself in the midst of an ancient war of shapeshifters, but the devious Cordelia Lynn Harley has re-entered his life and has a few of her own surprises.

Born into a hated race of Norse wolf shifters, Celina Hunter knows all too well the dangers of trusting anyone other than her two brothers. And yet the survival of her family hinges on trusting the strangely familiar vampire, a natural enemy of her kind yet her tribe’s Shaman advisers confirm he is her soul mate. Enemy or not, Celina slips into the spell of Broderick’s promises of eternal love, gambling with all she holds dear.

Broderick and Celina are bound by a curse, but having come this far through the centuries, Broderick is not about to risk his chance at having his soul mate for eternity. The price, however, may be more than Celina is willing to pay as there is more at stake than just her immortal soul. Click to Tweet

Bonded By Blood Characters - Angus CampbellBio: Angus Campbell

Villain or Tortured Hero??

Angus is the bastard son of Alyssa Campbell, who died when she gave birth to Angus’s brother, Ewan. Raised by his spiteful step-father, Fraser Campbell, Angus has forever been reminded of his illegitimacy. Fraser made sure Angus never forgot who his father was, how he was abandoned and what he would never receive because Angus was not Broderick MacDougal.

Wars between the Campbells and MacDougals have made Angus a war-toughed Scotsman with a heart full of vengeance…and immortality was his path to revenge. But he feels completely justified by his vengeance…for reasons slowly being revealed throughout the series.

Most Popular Quote from Angus Campbell

“Huz-zah!” Snapping his head toward Jasper, he said, “What is this laudanum?”
Said by Angus Campbell after feeding from a victim who had laudanum in his blood – Midnight Captive, Book 2 of the Bonded By Blood Vampire Chronicles  – Click to Tweet

SORRY!! Can’t share these right now…or they would be major spoilers for the books!! I can say that green is his favorite color, because it was his mother’s favorite color.

Bonded By Blood Characters - Rosselyn & NicabarBio: Rosselyn Buchanan

Destined to be a Gypsy?

Rosselyn Buchanan grew up in the household at Stewart Glen, two years older than her best friend and mistress, Davina Stewart. The girls were more like sisters and Rosselyn has been there for Davina as a playmate and emotional support. And so watching her dear friend be subjected to the abusive relationship of Davina’s arranged marriage was almost more than she could stand. It’s no wonder Rosselyn plays the matchmaker when Broderick MacDougal comes along. Little did Rosselyn know she would end up being swept of her feet by the charming Spanish Gypsy, Nicabar Mendoza.

Most Popular Quote from Rosselyn Buchanan

“My sweet friend, falling in love is allowing yourself to be vulnerable enough to open your heart. Love is taking risks. If you want the love you have been dreaming of for so long, you must be willing to get hurt.”
Said to Davina Stewart-Russell in Midnight Conquest, Book 1 of the Bonded By Blood Vampire Chronicles – Click to Tweet

Bio: Nicabar Mendoza

Charming Spanish Gypsy

Nicabar has been with the Gypsies most of his life, having joined them when he was a wandering pickpocket in Barcelona. He is a passionate man who is devoted to his band of Gypsies, but has a bit of a wild streak and has never been tied down to any one person. However…Rosselyn – the beautiful Scot lady who caught his eye – is woman whose passion matches his own. She just might be the one to win his wild heart.

Most Popular Quote from Nicabar Mendoza

“The giant dukker is a strange man of dark secrets, not someone you should seek.” With a raised eyebrow, the corner of his mouth turned up in a devilish smile. “But my warnings may not deter a woman such as you, with fire in her eyes and passion in her heart.” He closed the distance. “Pursuing a mysterious stranger may be exactly what you seek.”
Said to Rosselyn Buchanan in Midnight Conquest, Book 1 of the Bonded By Blood Vampire Chronicles – Click to Tweet

Facts About Rosselyn & Nicabar NOT in the Books

Toward the beginning of Midnight Conquest, the Gypsies come to the little village of Stewart Glen and Rosselyn explores the camp and all its festivities with her mistress, Davina. Though hinted at when Davina is older, it’s never shown that during the next few weeks the Gypsies are visiting, Rosselyn and Davina go down several times to the camp to sit with Amice and share tea or break bread together. Even back then, Rosselyn dreamt of being a Gypsy and it was the adventures Amice shared – about the cities to which they traveled across Europe and the people they met – that fueled Rosselyn’s desire to be one of them. Though Rosselyn had thought about running away with them, in the end couldn’t bare to leave knowing she might never see Davina again.

Nicabar was ten years old, a hungry orphan on the streets of Barcelona, when he picked someone’s pocket for the first time. Unfortunately, he was discovered…but not yet caught. The young boy ran for his life, slipping through the vendor carts and passersby in the marketplace. When Nicabar rounded the corner and ducked into an alley, he was sure to escape…but collided with Amice and Monique half-way down the alley. Nicabar felt horrible that he’d knocked down an older woman and, while trying to help her up, the man he’d robbed caught up with him. Monique used her charms to persuade the gentleman into believing the young boy was with them. Amice scolded their new companion while Monique made a promise to meet the man later and to forget about the small pittance of money the boy pilfered. Lucky for Nicabar, the Gypsies were spending their last night in Barcelona They took Nicabar back to their camp where he gorged on a hot meal and their pleasant company. Amice said he could work off the meal if he stayed with them…and could find a home with the Gypsies if he promised to be a hard worker. He would have starved and eventually been hung for stealing if he had not run into Amice and Monique. Nicabar has been with the Gypsies every since.

Bonded By Blood Characters - Amice & VeroniqueBio: Amice Cartier

A Gypsy…and so much more!

Amice Cartier and Broderick MacDougal crossed paths when Broderick rescued her granddaughter Veronique from drowning at the age of five. Amice was eternally grateful to Broderick, but her sixth senses told her what he was and she, at first, shied away from him. Vamsyrians are not known for their generosity and compassion, so Amice took a chance to become more social with Broderick and invited him to sit by their fire to dry off from the river…and she read his palm. Even then, Amice told Broderick how unique he was, especially amongst his own kind, though Broderick still is not certain exactly how different he is or why. However, the nurturing Amice expressed was something Broderick needed at the time. As a result, he felt drawn to her and accepted her invitation to join their band of traveling vagabonds. Over the years, Amice became somewhat of a replacement for Broderick’s mother, Moira. Amice taught Broderick how to perfect his mind-reading abilities granted by immortality, and he learned palm reading in order to compliment his supernatural gifts. With Amice telling fortunes by day, and Broderick telling them at night, they made a very good team!

Most Popular Quote from Amice Cartier

“You just keep invading my mind and we will see how fiery I can get! I will cast a spell on you, and you…you will fall in love with a chicken!” She nodded emphatically.
A curse Amice said to Broderick MacDougal in Midnight Conquest, Book 1 of the Bonded By Blood Vampire Chronicles – Click to Tweet 

Bio: Veronique Cartier

Yep! She’s a bee-otch!

Veronique Cartier did start out as a cute, young child. Unfortunately, her grandmother Amice spoiled her to make up for the loss of her daughter Monique, and perhaps even doted on her granddaughter as a salve to her guilty conscience for not being able to save Monique from her self-destructive behavior (see below). When Broderick MacDougal came into Veronique’s life, he was a larger-than-life, knight in shining armor who rescued her from a watery grave. With an overly affectionate and spoiling grandmother and a rogue of a Gypsy for a male role model, poor Veronique didn’t have much of a chance at being a very loving woman. Her upbringing unknowingly produced a very selfish little girl who just wanted to be loved…and she’d do anything to get that love. Such is the stage that is set for Midnight Conquest and Davina’s misfortune at having crossed the path of this self-centered Gypsy.

Most Popular Quote from Veronique Cartier

The young French girl’s voice dropped to a desperate whisper. “I give you my blood and my heart.” Stepping closer to him, she opened her blouse, baring her breasts. “And my body.”
Said to Broderick MacDougal in Midnight Conquest, Book 1 of the Bonded By Blood Vampire Chronicles – Click to Tweet 

Facts About Amice & Veronique NOT in the Books

Readers will FINALLY get to learn what happened to Monique! Read on…oh, and please Click to Tweet!

The life of a Gypsy was all Amice had ever known. Her mother Anna Ribault was a French Gypsy, who fell in love with an aristocrat in Paris. Unfortunately, the nobleman only used Anna for his own pleasures. When Anna told him they would be having a child together, a product of their love, he banished Anna from his presence. This, of course, broke Anna’s heart and she acted rashly, exposing the nobleman for his callous behavior. Unfortunately, as a Gypsy Anna was ridiculed and the nobleman’s wife ordered Anna stoned in the city square. Anna’s Gypsy clan rescued her from the public execution and they all fled Paris. Anna never told Amice who her father was.

Amice grew up amongst the French Gypsies, where she eventually fell in love with Maurice Cartier, her childhood friend and one of the Gypsies in her clan. They had a daughter, Monique. Maurice died in a horse riding accident when Monique was just thirteen, so she went into deep despair over losing her father. Unfortunately, that caused Monique to look for the affection of men…who were many, either in spite of or a direct result of Amice’s strict hold on her daughter. Monique became pregnant with Veronique – father unknown.

Amice ended up rearing her granddaughter due to Monique’s obsession with finding someone to love her. Monique’s pursuit for romance led her into the bed of a Selkie male named Amund Osvald. Once Monique discovered what he was, she found his seal skin and hid it from him. Though Selkie women are known for being bound to a human male in such a situation, male Selkies are not so forgiving or compliant. No matter what Amice said to get Monique to return the Selkie’s skin, Monique refused and was confident she had finally found her true love who could never leave her as long as she always kept the skin concealed. Her hidden treasure would be the death of her. Amund found the skin and killed Monique before he returned to the sea.

Veronique was too young to understand what happened to her mother and thought Amund had taken her mother with him to the sea…so she went into the river looking for her mother. And that is how Broderick saved Veronique from drowning.

Midnight Conquest - Davina Stewart-RussellBio: Davina Stewart-Russell

Not a lady born, but a lady raised…

…Davina Stewart was born to Parlan and Lilias at Stewart Glen in the Lowlands of Scotland, just northeast of Aberdeen. Davina is the youngest of her and her brother, Kehr.

Due to her loose connections to the crown through her father, she was betrothed to Ian Russell – a marriage that benefited her brother and father with wealth, while Parlan promised coveted contacts for Ian and his father, Munro. However, Ian has proven to use a heavy hand to rule over Davina. In spite of pleas toward her father to dissolve the marriage, she is forced to endure her union for the sake of their financial wellbeing. In a time where a woman is property to her family and spouse, Davina endures with a silent strength when she has exhausted all other avenues, and maintains her dignity in the face of oppression.

But there is one image in her mind that has been her anchor through the years. The handsome Gypsy she met as a young girl – Broderick. He had warned her of the dark times to come when he read her palm, and said she would endure if she held to an image of strength. Little did he or Davina know Broderick would be that rock she would cling to, the light that would give her hope through those dark times.

Most Popular Quote from Davina Stewart-Russell

“Your name—MacDougal means Son of the Dark Stranger, if I’m not mistaken.” She pursed her lips and crossed her arms. “How appropriate.” 
Said to Broderick MacDougal in Midnight Conquest, Book 1 of the Bonded By Blood Vampire Chronicles – Click to Tweet 

Fact About Davina Stewart-Russell NOT in the Books

In Midnight Conquest, there is a scene where Broderick is being a bit of a peeping Tom and is mesmerized by Davina standing in a tub of shallow water, cleansing herself from the day. However, the scars on her body and the odd angle of her left arm take Broderick out of this sensual moment and ignite a protective anger in him over the obvious signs of abuse. Davina’s left arm was indeed broken, as Broderick had observed. She had gone to her father-in-law to inform him of Ian’s abusive behavior. Munro said he would speak with Ian on her behalf. Later that evening, Ian had a fight with his father Munro and, as punishment, Munro denied him funds. Ian became very drunk and took his anger out on Davina with his fists, then shoved her down a short flight of stairs where she broke her arm on the fall. This was the night of her first miscarriage.

Broderick and Celina are bound by a curse, but having come this far through the centuries, Broderick is not about to risk his chance at having his soul mate for eternity. The price, however, may be more than Celina is willing to pay as there is more at stake than just her immortal soul. Click to Tweet

Character Reveal Tour – #Giveaways – Broderick MacDougal

Midnight Eclipse - Character Reveal Tour 2014

Let the Character Reveal Tour Begin!

Romance Trading Card for Broderick MacDougalWelcome to the Midnight Eclipse Character Reveal Tour! I’m going to introduce you to several  of the most memorable characters in my Bonded By Blood Vampire Chronicles, including my upcoming novel Midnight Eclipse – the 4th book in the series. We have a lot of fun, giveaways and special deals for VIP Club members.

DON’T MISS OUT! If you didn’t get your September 1st newsletter announcement, I’m selling Midnight Eclipse to VIP Club Members ONLY for 50¢!! Yep! You read that right! A full-length novel for 50 pennies! Without my devoted fans, I’m just someone penning stories. Therefore, to show my undying appreciation to my fans, I give them special pricing, early access to new releases and exclusive giveaways…among other things. So if you aren’t a member of my VIP Club, SIGN UP NOW to take advantage of all the goodies!

Introducing – Broderick “Rick” MacDougal

Our beloved Broderick MacDougal is the first character revealed during this tour. For those readers who haven’t met Rick yet, hold onto your knickers! This HOT Scottish vampire from the 16th century is a Gypsy, a rogue and a total charmer! For my fans who’ve already delved into the tales of my delicious Immortal Highlander, you might be happy to know I’m dropping a few facts and information along the tour that are NOT featured in the books! These will be great conversation starters for you readers to be chatting about with Broderick.

DOH! Did you catch that???

No? Then let me be direct – Broderick MacDougal will be making an appearance on the blog stops featuring his profile during the tour. He might even pop in on a few of the other blog stops during the entire tour; however, in spite of being a rogue, he is always a gentleman. Well…okay, MOST of the time he’s a gentleman. With that being said, during the other blog stops featuring the other characters, Rick won’t be barging in unless he’s been invited, so if you want to continue to hear from Rick for the whole month we’re promoting Midnight Eclipse, then leave a comment for him.

Blog Tour Stops

Literati Author Services is doing a fabulous job coordinating this whole tour for me! I couldn’t do it without them and my assistant, Jess DaBooknut! They have arranged for some wonderful bloggers to host all my characters and book blasts at their sites, so show some lovin’ and follow their social media links and subscribe to their blogs. Literati will be posting a page with ALL the links to all the stops, so the more you participate in the tour, the more changes you have to win the giveaways (some listed below). CLICK HERE for a current list of tour stops. AND if you’d like to sign up to host a tour stop, CLICK HERE.  The more the merrier!!

Giveaways

We all love freebies and I love to give them away! To be eligible for the giveaways, you HAVE to be a member of my VIP Club, so SIGN UP NOW if you’re not a member already. And you can help me by spreading the word, so the more you comment, tweet and post on Facebook, the more chances you’ll have to win some of the following prizes:

Bonded By Blood Vampire Coaster Set

Bonded By Blood Vampire Coaster Set

At each leg of the tour, I’ll gift ONE of my hand-crafted wooden artwork pieces. I love to make things that are magical, glittery and functional! At the end of each group of characters from each book (e.g., at the end of the tour featuring all the characters from Book 1), I’ll be giving away one (1) hand-crafted item. This is a wooden coaster set my husband and I created is an example of some of the work we do, and has a variety of vampire sayings, such as…

  • I <3 Vampires!
  • I <3 Bite Marks!
  • I Leave Bite Marks!
  • Vampires Do It with More Bite!
  • Vampires Do It ’til You’re Drained!

We have up to twelve (12) sayings for the coasters, but there are six coasters in each set, so each set is slightly different. Each coaster has the BBB logo of the vampire comedy and tragedy masks, representing Broderick MacDougal and his clan rival, Angus Campbell. I sign all of my work and I only made a limited amount of these coasters, so it will be numbered. :) CLICK HERE to see the other items I’m giving away during the whole tour.

Gift Cards & eBooks

During the tour stops, I’ll be giving away eBook copies of Midnight Captive and Midnight Hunt for those who have not yet had a chance to dive into the series. As a VIP Club member, you’ll get Book 1 for free, so if you’re new to the club, you’ll have many chances to win the other books in the series and catch up on what happens before Book 4. Everyone wins when you’re a VIP Club Member!

Grand Prize

And the for the grand prize, I’ll be giving away a $100 Amazon, B&N or iTunes gift card (winner’s choice). For a complete list of prizes, click here.

SAVE THE DATES!!

ADD TO YOUR GOODREADS SHELF!!

As I announced last week, we have a bunch of other fun stuff happening over at the FB Event – Bonded By Blood Party – so be sure to go there and sign up!!

What’s in this Book? Wolf Shapeshifters!!

As usual, HOT Scottish Vampires will be in this book! BUT I’ve now added another set of shapeshifters to my lore. The werewolves I introduced in Midnight Hunt (Book 3) were the traditional man-wolf creatures that were pretty bad news. Though Thomas was sexy, he was definitely the villain and a very bad guy. This time I’m pulling from Norse mythology, creating my own wolf-shifting people that are born with this magical ability to transform into the beautiful, sleek but large forms of wolves you might see in the wild. No grotesque transmogrification (GAWD I love that word!), but the graceful transition from one form to the other.

They are not only descendants of the god wolves Manegarm (aka Hati) and Sköll, but they are the offspring of the giantesses of the Ironwood forest (in the Norse realm and not from Earth). And that makes them very tall, so Celina (the heroine/Davina in Book 4), her brothers and their clan are all at least six feet in height! You’ll get to hear the story of how they came to earth very briefly in Midnight Eclipse, but I’ll be providing the lore in a free publication later – for VIP Club members ONLY, so be sure to sign up so you don’t miss it. I also have a twists, turns and quite a few surprises in this installment of the Bonded By Blood Vampire Chronicles. More secrets about the prophecy are revealed and I’m introducing a few new characters into the mix while I’m also bringing some old characters up to center stage. AND there will be two HEAs in this book! Lots of fun in store for this novel! I can’t wait for you all to read it!

What’s NOT in this Book? Sex!

My primary concern is to write a great story with lots of layers and plot twists and page-turning events. Although I have THOROUGHLY enjoyed writing the erotic love scenes between Broderick and Davina, the storyline for this novel did not really allow for me to include such detailed sex scenes. In fact, there isn’t much sex in this book at all!

[expand title="SPOILER ALERT (which explains why there's no sex)"]Broderick and Celina/Davina hit the ground running almost as soon as they meet each other and Broderick’s race is not very accepted by Celina’s clan. In fact, they HATE Vamsyrians and this was necessary to have Broderick fight for the woman he loves. However, it doesn’t make for very romantic encounters or private time. Celina’s father doesn’t want his daughter with a man he considers a monster, so you can bet your tushi he’s not going to give Broderick a single moment alone with his daughter if he can help it. As such…no nookie for Broderick![/expand]

Now, I could put the sex scenes in their dreams and leave it at that, but many readers have expressed in the past that this was a real tease (referring to Book 1), so I avoided taking this route. And I didn’t want to sacrifice the story just to get these two into bed together. Not only would the story fall short, but many of their opportunities to have sex would just seem forced and contrived, again sacrificing story. Will Broderick still be sex-on-a-stick? OH YEAH! He’ll still be rogue and push the boundaries of those sexual restrictions and there will still be sensuality in the story. But I’m taming things down in the sexual department so I can give you a good story. So rated R instead of XXX.

Moving Forward – New Books Launching in December!!

Midnight Conquest - New Adult VersionMidnight Savior (Book 5) so far is also proving to be the same situation – no sex due to the storyline. So with two books coming out that will have little-to-no sex, it’s opening up the opportunity for me to expand my audience. I’ve had several readers tell me they adore the stories, but the sex has been a little too much for them, so they skip over the love scenes. I’ve also had several young people interested in reading my books, but I strongly caution anyone under the age of eighteen to pick up my novels due to the graphic sexual content. As such, these are readers who are missing out on my Broderick and Davina’s tales.

Midnight Conquest - New Adult Version - Audiobook CoverSo, starting in December, I’ll be releasing the New Adult versions of my Bonded By Blood series. Same stories, just minus the detailed sexual encounters. The sex won’t be gone completely. I’ll just be taking out all the “glistening folds” details. Instead of writing, “Davina reached between them and grabbed Broderick’s shaft.” I’ll have, “Davina reached between them to fondle Broderick.” Or the like. Again, still sex-on-a-stick Broderick, the rogue and scoundrel, but focusing more on the sensuality. I know I might lose a few readers during this transition, but give the books a whirl before you bow out. AND if you’re a VIP Club member, you’ll get the new releases for FREE, so you have nothing to lose. Well, except the details in the sex. LOL The books will get new covers to fit the content, so this is why Book 4 has a close-up of Celina’s face, versus seeing lots of skin on the cover. And I’ll have a launch event during December. (I’m crossing my fingers the audiobooks of the new adult versions will be ready by then, too!!!)

happy-girl-at-computer_omgVIP Club Giveaway

Please Note: Most of the giveaways on my site and some of the upcoming events related to my next release will be exclusive for for my VIP Club members. This is my way of showing my appreciation for those devoted readers who go that extra mile to be a fan. Joining is FREE and there is no obligation to buy my books. With that being said…we can’t have a cover reveal without a giveaway!!!!

I need your input and opinion so tell me what you think and you could win a prize! The opinions of my readers matter to me, so don’t be afraid to tell me what you think about the above information. How do you like the idea of the Norse shapeshifters? Or the lack of sex in the books? What about the new adult versions? Is this something that appeals to you or are you in the “Don’t F**K with  my books!” camp?

TO ENTER THE DRAWING: Share your thoughts and opinions below in the comments. I’ll pick two winners for these prizes: a $15 and a $10 Amazon, B&N or iTunes gift card (winner’s choice).

Thanks for your participation and encouragement!!

Hugs,

Arial :D

#Outlander @Twitter Party – Updates

Outlander Premier based on Diana Gabaldon's internationally bestselling novelsExciting Outlander News!

I’m REALLY excited to announce that Diana Gabaldon’s assistant has contacted me to set up an interview for PNR Radio! SQUEEEEEEE!!!! With that being said, in my previous post I said I was going to giveaway the Outlander poster my husband and I were able to secure. HOWEVER, I’ve put in a request to see if I can send it to Ms. Gabaldon in hopes that she’ll sign the poster and then forward it on to the winner!!! As busy as she and her assistant are, I’m sure it will take a little bit for them to get back to me, so I can’t promise the poster giveaway for the weekend until I hear back from her. Cross your fingers we have a thumbs-up for this request. I’m sure you’d all rather have HER sign the poster instead of me! LOL And I don’t blame you! ONE DAY my novels will be made into a TV show or movies and THEN I can sign movie posters! Mwahahaha! My ultimate plan for conquering the world!!! I don’t know about you, but I’m all for HOT SCOTS dominating the world. *Arial swoons* What I hope to do is AS SOON AS I learn whether or not Ms. Gabaldon will be able to sign the poster is create a contest entry on the PNR Radio website, where we usually have all our other giveaways, which is at http://pnrradio.com/contest. The duration of the contest will be from the moment I know, through the week when we air her interview (TBD). I won’t know what other giveaways Ms. Gabaldon will have during her interview, if any, so that contest entry point will be updated as I learn more. (And for those of you who might now know, I’m the host of PNR Radio, so be sure to subscribe for free for our weekly giveaways and interviews with your favorite authors and celebrities of Entertainment that Goes Bump in the Night!
