Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Reasons to Buy Svetkavista

1. Remember the scene from that otherwise awful mutilation of a film, The Queen of the Damned, wherein Stuart Townsend as Lestat plays the violin with a pair of gypsies on the beach? Brishen's character was inspired by that one little, memorable, scene.

2. Learn about a new culture. The Rom, more commonly known as gypsies, are complex, fascinating people. Find out why they're not what you think.

3. Like historicals but tired of Regencies and Scottish heros? (You better not be!) Explore something a little different! Set in 1760's Hungary, Svetkavista offers all the fun of an historical novel with none of the cliches.

4. Do you like music? Of course you do. Svetkavista is filled with it, the soulful sounds of the gypsy violin woven through the pages in a way that will make you want to rush to iTunes and buy yourself some Bartok. Which you should do anyway.

5. Kelly from AORAOG reviews called Svetkavista "sensuous, heartfelt, and truly of the best romance reads of the year" in 2006. Julianna from TwoLips "couldn't stop reading it and really didn't want it to end." Caro from Coffee Time Romance calls it "absolutely stunning." Cathie at Euro Reviews found it "extraodrinary" and "unique." Find out why. Do you really want to miss out on that?

6. Learn how to curse like a gypsy. They do it better than sailors.

7. Discover the book that put Kayleigh on the map. Initially published in July 2006, Svetkavista is Kayleigh's first published full-length novel. The buzz was immediate. Hop on the bandwagon and say you knew Kayleigh way back when.

8. Show your support for the new publisher everyone is talking about. You've heard about Tease Publishing, the new, women-run, exclusive publisher that is already developing a name for itself with its quality books, gorgeous covers, and creative marketing strategy. Show your support and satisfy your curiosity.

9. #1 Bestselling author and 2007 EPPIE winner Emma Wildes loved it. You love Emma. Therefore, you will love it too.

10. It's a KJ book. So you know it's gonna get hot.

11. Do you like coffee? How about coffee on the go? Keep your eyes peeled here for how to get your own FREE travel mug, just by answering a question or two.

12. Anyone who emails Kayleigh their receipt of purchase ( by November 30th will receive a press packet from me filled with fun goodies.

13. The first 25 people to email ( their receipts of purchase will be entered into a drawing to win a signed copy of Svetkavista in print when it is released February 15th of next year.
