My favorite part of 2011 was________________________

Why do I ask this question? Because my favorite part of 2011 was the release of my first novel AND the short story featuring my novel’s characters, Charley Randall and Wyatt Moreland.

Little White Lies CoverHere’s what Little White Lies is all about:

When the government needs a body double for a covert operation, they hire shape-shifter Charley Randall. For two centuries, she’s played every part from foreign dignitary to office drone. The role she wants most, though, is one she’s denied herself three times already.

FBI Agent Wyatt Moreland believes Charley’s photographic memory is the key to his latest assignment. He’s oblivious to the true extent of her abilities, but he can’t deny the sense of déjà vu at their introduction.

Unlike Wyatt, Charley knows this isn’t their first meeting.

It’s their fourth.

The girl he vowed to love, sixteen years before, stands in front of him in her true form — one he’ll never recognize.

With each reconnection, Charley loves him more though she realizes this is her last chance to explain. Only absolute truth can bring them happiness, but can Wyatt forgive her deceptions? Or will lies tear them apart forever?

Into The Unknown Cover - Anthology from three authors

and for my short story in the Into the Unknown Anthology:

In Misguided, Little White Lies’s Wyatt Moreland is hot on the trail of a wanted man when a rumor about his fiancée halts his progress. His desire to keep her safe wars with her need to be involved in his work and could derail their entire wedding unless he finds out the truth before she does.

Want these two stories for your eReader? Want some signed bookmarks? Gotta play to win. Register for one and answer the question by January 3, 2012 and the very next day, I’ll draw a random name from all the comments.

That’s it! Two actions and done! Voila! Just be sure to get your answer in by January 3rd and one day later, I’ll randomly choose one participant to win the goodies!

So … what was your favorite part of 2011? I’ll look for your comments, starting … now! 🙂
