Further UPDATE November 21, 2017. Since neither my Grand Prize Winner nor the 2nd place winner ever got in touch with me, despite my best efforts to publicize the names, I have now picked another winner via random number generator – Jess Schira is the Grand Prize Winner. I’m withdrawing the 2nd place prize since it was not originally offered – I added it on as an extra after the contest ended. The 3rd place winner claimed her prize and it has been sent.
November 13, 2017 The giveaway is now CLOSED. The Grand Prize winner of the items pictured was chosen via random number generator and was icallhimbubba
I decided to give a 2nd and 3rd prize which will both consist of a copy of the EMBRACE THE ROMANCE PETS IN SPACE 2 book signed by me, a Zazzle tote bag, a Valkyr sticker and one of my silly toy robots. (So there’s no copy of Star Trek Cats – sorry.) The 2nd and 3rd place winners were Jodi Hunter and Mary Kirkland.
I’ll need your actual mailing addresses to send the items – thanks! You can contact me via this blog (or on twitter or Facebook).
I loved all the comments received – thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts!
This is the final week during which we are donating 10% of the profits from our pets in space anthology to Hero Dogs, Inc. So if you haven’t gotten your copy yet, still a few days to have us donate part of the purchase price!
In honor of the final week of donations, I’m doing a giveaway of ONE PRIZE package of:
Paperback copy of EMBRACE THE ROMANCE PETS IN SPACE 2 signed by me;
Star Trek Cats by Jenny Parks just because it’s scifi, cats and fun;
One of my ‘official’ Veronica Scott toy robots to help you carry the prize (he’s only 3″ tall – just a little windup toy LOL);
… and a tote from Zazzle for you to carry it in, plus a sticker of Valkyr and Lolly, my pets from the story Star Cruise: Songbird!
To enter, leave me a comment with what your favorite pet in science fiction or any other genre is…I’ll pick the winner randomly on Sunday November 12 at 6PM Pacific Time and announce the winner here, on my Facebook author page and by tweet.
I WILL ship this internationally if the winner doesn’t live in the USA.

The blurb for my story:
Grant Barton, a Security Officer on the Nebula Zephyr, is less than thrilled with his current assignment to guard an Interstellar singing sensation while she’s on board the ship. It doesn’t help that he and his military war bird Valkyr are dealing with their recent separation from the Sectors Special Forces and uncertainty over their future, with their own planet in ruins.
Karissa Dawnstar is on top of the charts and seemingly has it all – talent, fame, fortune and devoted fans, but behind her brave smile and upbeat lyrics she hides an aching heart. When a publicity stunt goes wrong, Karissa finds herself in the arms of the security officer assigned to protect her – and discovers a mutual attraction she can’t ignore.
Trouble continues to plague the pair, driving a wedge between them and leaving Grant certain that Karissa is in more danger than she realizes, from overzealous fans and her own management. Grant is determined to protect Karissa whether she wants his help or not. Can he discover the truth behind what’s going on before he loses Karissa or is there someone else plotting to keep them apart – permanently?
