Greetings, Champions! Thank you to everyone who participated in the poll–I’ll be discussing the details below, but first, I’m announcing a new contest! From today (Monday, June 8) through Thursday, (June 11) I’m running a raffle to give away five free copies of Enlightened. The rules are simple. Just enter via the rafflecopter link below, and you’ll be in the drawing to win one of five copies of Enlightened. On Friday, June 12 I will randomly select and announce the five winners! I was supposed to get this contest out yesterday, so I apologize for the delay, but here it is!
Sadly, I can’t get the java coding to work on wordpress–my host. I’m hoping to get something up later, but for now you’ll have to click on the link to go to the raffle form. This is the first time I’m running a raffle-contest, so I apologize in advance for any additional bumps and hiccups we experience in this learning process. (Speaking of bumps, rafflecopter forces me to ask you guys to do something in order to enter. Just click on the “comment on the blog” option and then click “I commented!” to enter. You don’t need to comment, it was just the easiest way to get the raffle up.) Ahem…yes…thank you for your patience!
I closed the “Ideal Hero” poll, and I have to say it was a ruthless race! The Strong and silent men won with 121 votes. Pranksters/Deviants were in second with 115 votes. Earnest and sweet came in third with 108 votes. Sarcastic and opinionated took fourth place with 96 votes. The Loyal flirts swiped fifth place with 58 votes. Bad Boys strong-armed their way into sixth with 37 votes. Best Friend/Boy next Door claimed seventh with 28 votes. Heroic types trailed close behind with 25 votes, and Loveable idiots trailed in last with 18 votes. (Although it seems most people think Loveable Idiots make excellent secondary characters, and both of the examples I have listed are secondary characters, so I feel like I might have pushed those guys into the wrong playground.)
The top three winners were a tight race. The Strong and Silent guys commonly fell back and pulled ahead, but they managed to pull off a win! Anyway, thank you to everyone who voted. I enjoyed your explanations and reasoning, and your opinions are valuable to me. Please enter the poor guinea pig raffle, and have a fantastic day!

The raffle won’t let me past the first page. 🙁
Hmmm if you click on the link the first page should have a box which will ask you to use your email or facebook to sign in. Does that part pop up?
Morgan Meyer says
Yup. But for some reason it won’t let me any farther. I wouldn’t worry about it though, because I already pre-ordered it! Yay! I just wanted to let you know. (Maybe it was because I tried to do it on my phone)
Hmm, well thanks for the warning. It might have had something to do with your timezone as the Raffle ended before it was supposed to. (I selected through 6/11, but it made the executive decision to end it before 6/11.) I’ve had enough problems with it that I might try a different widget next time I run one of these.

I love the king Arthur and her knights series…huge fan of fiction having to do with Arthurian legend
I know that this is unrelated but will there be a new life reader book and if so when
Yes, there will for certain be a Life Reader sequel! However, I’m not going to be able to get a chance to start it until this fall/winter, and it is a LONG book computer to my typical stories, so it won’t be out until 2016. (Probably late 2016 because long books are beasts to edit.)
I love your books!!! Each and every one!! I am excited!!
It looks amazing!!
I’ll read it anyway…but I hope that I get a copy!

I’m looking forward to reading the new King Arthur book.
