Over the past several years, I've hosted scores of contests to celebrate the release dates of my stories. Throughout 2014, I'm going to be having a number of promotions again, many located across the Web and around the country... Most of these will be announced on my blog, so please check Brant Flakes for further information and surprise giveaways, or on my Facebook/Twitter pages. I'll also list special events on this page in the right sidebar.

By the way, taking part in my contests does not usually require signing up for my free email newsletter. There are a few that do, but I'd love to have you join me anyway. I have no intention of flooding your inbox with messages (who has that kind of time?!), so you'll hear from me only when there's news worth reporting or to let you know about the latest big giveaway or book sale. Since the publishing industry moves with the swiftness of an encroaching glacier, this means a writing update only 3 or 4 times/year. And, lest anyone should worry about privacy -- a valid concern, in my opinion -- your email address will not be given or sold to anyone. Ever. I promise.

Many thanks to everybody who joined me in my Travel/Blog Tour for A Summer in Europe and/or on my Route 66 Road Trip for The Road to You. I always love getting to chat about trip adventures with readers online and swap travel stories!!

Best wishes, all!


Contests Coming Up in 2014

*Note: Many of my contests will have multiple winners!

On the Blog(s): I host dozens of giveaways every year on my personal blog, group blogs and, also, when I visit other blogs as a guest. Sometimes these are contests for my own books. Other times they're giveaways for novels and prizes offered by my writing friends. You'll want to check out the happenings on Brant Flakes regularly for contest news!


On Fresh Fiction: I'll be hosting occasional contests on Fresh Fiction and will be giving away autographed print copies of my novels and/or a variety of tasty treats, t-shirts, tote bags, silky body lotions, Starbucks VIA™ coffee and lots more...


On My Mailing List: I host occasional drawings throughout the year for those readers who've signed up for my free newsletter, and I announce the random winner(s) in the newsletter when they happen. There will be about 3 - 4 mailings this year. To get my newsletter and be automatically entered to win, just type your email address in the gold opt-in box (left sidebar) and click the button!


At a Signing: There will likely be a few book signings, conferences or library programs that I'll attend this year, and I often have on-site drawings or giveaways at these events.


Please feel free to email me (marilynbrant AT gmail DOT com) if you want to say hello ~ I love to hear from readers!
