Publishers Weekly Reviews A Man of Character! (And they like it!)

*Squee!* Publishers Weekly, one of the foremost magazines in the publishing industry, reviewed A Man of Character in their March 6th edition
– and they LIKED it!

Forgive me while I run around the room like a crazy chicken,
but I’m so excited they selected my book to review (and gave it a thumbs up).
An author’s dream come true. 

Thank you, Publishers Weekly!

And thank YOU to all my readers who’ve told me how much they love my books. You rock my world, 100%.

Bookversary Newsletter #Giveaway WINNERS List!

Wahoo! It’s Tuesday, so it’s time to announce the winners from last week’s Giveaway-O-Rama.

A note on how I chose winners: I compiled a list of every name/email entry in an Excel spreadsheet. Then I used random.org’s Sequence Generator to give me a random number sequence for each giveaway; the top number was my winner. Since people could enter any/all giveaways and the numbers are selected randomly, people can and did win more than once, as luck would have it.

I’ve not included last names for privacy’s sake – if you won, I’ll be emailing you! Thank you all for entering!

It’s A Man of Character’s Bookversary! #Giveaway

Margaret Locke A Man of Character
That’s me the first time I ever held one of my books in my hands.

Holy cow. It’s A Man of Character‘s Book Birthday. That means I’ve been a published author for one year. Say what?

It’s been quite a ride, and I’m absolutely thrilled so many people have joined me on it.

I treasure every single Facebook exchange, email correspondence, tweet convo, and review left. Every. Single. One.

Because I couldn’t have imagined a year ago I’d have fans. Or that I’d publish two books in the space of a year, with the third debuting July 6th. Or that I’d final three times in the 2016 HOLT Medallion Awards

I’ve met amazing readers. I’ve met amazing writers. I’ve made lots of mistakes. I’ve learned lots more.

And I’m so very grateful for all of it.

Have you signed up for my newsletter yet? I sent one out this morning with TONS of giveaways as a Book Birthday present to you! You can check the newsletter out here: http://eepurl.com/b3gE8L

** Please note if you email me to enter a giveaway (or two or three or seven), I take that as consent for you to be added to my newsletter list. But don’t worry – I only email when I have actual news (such as a new release or a sale), and I try to include a giveaway every time!

MUCH LOVE to all of you. I wouldn’t be here without you. THANK YOU.

amanofcharactersmallA Man of Character: http://bit.ly/AManOfCharacter – Check out this whimsically magical romantic comedy, in which a bookstore owner must choose between fantasy and reality after discovering the men she’s dating are living versions of fictional characters she created long ago.

A Man of Character is a HIT!!! Margaret Locke’s first novel is a true gift to any of us that enjoy romantic comedies with a whimsical twist.” – Annie McDonnell, The Write Review and chicklitplus.com

amatteroftimesmallA Matter of Time: http://bit.ly/AMatterOfTime – A fun, emotion-packed Regency time-travel romance in which a modern-day Austenite’s dream comes true when she lands in the arms of an authentic Regency duke, only to learn some fantasies aren’t all they’re cracked up to be when he proves less than a Prince Charming…

“A love story and so much more, A Matter of Time should be on every fantasy, paranormal, contemporary and Regency romance readers “to read” list. I would definitely recommend this novel – you will be charmed, captivated, have a few good laughs and shed a few tears as you cheer Eliza and Dev on to find their happy every after ending.” – Marcy, Keeper Bookshelf
