Not only is she one of my favorite authors, but she’s high on my list of kickbutt women I admire. Julie Leto’s brand new paranormal romance, PHANTOM PLEASURES, is coming out next month, and she’s offering some super giveaways at her blog, Plotmonkeys, beginning Monday, March 24th.

Each day for the next week, Julie will be posting a chapter from PHANTOM PLEASURES at
Plotmonkeys, and offering readers the chance to win a $20.00 Amazon/Borders gift card per day to anyone who leaves a comment.

Julie is a longtime member of our
RWA chapter, the Tampa Area Romance Authors, and I’ve often thought of her as the heartbeat of TARA. She’s always been generous with advice and assistance to other writers, both published and unpublished. Frankly, if it weren’t for the unflagging faith and buttkicking of straight-shooting friends like her, I’m not so sure I’d still be writing books, let alone this blog.

She’s always helped me and been there for me. It gives me great joy to do the same for her.

Karen, you're making me tear up. ::sniff:: Thanks for the shout out and the kind words.

I think this year will be my 20th in TARA. It's a little scary that I've been at this so long!
