Huge Giveaway, Audiobook News, and a Favorite Quote

Happy Friday!!  I hope you had a good week!  Mine has been pretty great so far.  :-)

I put together and mailed quite a few packages to giveaway winners.  Swag Packs.  Signed books.  Tote bags.  Key Chains.  Pens.  A cool coffee mug.  There was a little bit of everything.  :-)

And look what was waiting for me at my P.O. Box:

My author copies of the Rendezvous With Yesterday Audiobook!  Aren't they pretty?  Kirsten Potter narrated this one.  If you've never listened to my audiobooks, she has narrated all of my novels and has done a fantastic job.  I've thrown a LOT of accents her way, and she came through every time.  I can't wait to listen to this one.  :-)

Speaking of audiobooks, A Sorceress of His Own, The Gifted Ones Book 1, just received an absolutely fabulous review from Caffeinated Book Reviewer.  

Here's a longer snippet:
"Duvall is a masterful storyteller who fleshes out her worlds and gives depth to her characters. Even her secondary characters are memorable. I loved the thread about the gifted ones and loved that Seth (from Immortal Guardians) has been protecting gifted ones all of this time. 
"Kristen Potter narrated, and she was perfect for this tale. This was my first experience with Potter, but I must confess it will not be my last. Her voices, tones, and accents were spot on creating another layer to an already brilliant tale. 
"Aside from having a new book boyfriend, (that is right ladies Dillon is mine), A Sorceress of His Own earned a place on my favorite romance and audio shelves. I would venture to say that even those who shy away from historical would love this tale."

It's time once more for Favorite Quote Friday!  I'm absolutely thrilled by the reviews that have been rolling in for Rendezvous With Yesterday.  I'm so glad readers are enjoying Robert and Bethany's story.  Even readers who admit they don't usually care for time travel romances are giving it great reviews, something that is always exciting.  So I thought I would give you another peek into its pages.

In this scene, Robert and Bethany are making camp with Robert's men—Stephen, Michael, and Adam.
Beth glanced over at Robert and caught him staring at her across the fire.  Rising, he abandoned the tent and the others and came to sit beside her once more. 
She smiled.  “Giving up?” 
He shook his head.  “I find your company more pleasing than theirs.” 
“I heard that,” Stephen groused, tossing the metal rod down and picking up another. 
She laughed.
Would it surprise you to know that I enjoy creating secondary characters as much as I do primary characters?  :-) 

Have a wonderful weekend!
