My good friend and fellow GunDiva, Tara Janzen, is an amazing author with more than twenty years as a published author. We met when she was doing research for her current series. I just happened to be the lucky co-instructor in her pistol safety course. We clicked and quickly became shooting buddies. I was there when she learned to become one with her rifle; it really was beautiful and magical.
As an invisible writer, I was initially star-struck to meet a real, honest-to-God, paid author. With seemingly millions of books to her name. As we became better friends - and after I was "killed" over and over again at the gun shop for a scene in one of her books - I finally broke down and asked her to read some of my work. She was honest. I love her for that. What I had presented to her was crap, though she was kind enough not to put it that way.
She was also the one, who, after reading some of my stories over at Tales, told me those should be published. Since she'd been honest in her review of my previous work, I knew it was high praise. She gave me the courage to submit my query.
Not only do I count her as one of my dearest friends, she's a hell of a writer and I love her books. Since I love them so much, I thought I'd share with you.

Please email your physical addresses to me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can get them in the mail to you ASAP. I hope you love them as much as I do. And, guys (no - really - the penised-Americans) who read my blog, if you've won one of these books, don't let the cover put you off...my big, bad Marine brother loves them! He just hides them inside a Playboy or some other such manly thing.
Any books not claimed by Sunday evening will be re-gifted, so fair warning.
Thank you to everyone for helping me celebrate my 200th blog post!
