Want to win this awesome Death Star shirt (size L) AND a signed copy of one of my books? All you have to do is review Blood Money or Bai Tide on Amazon or Goodreads (or copy/paste your review to both sites for extra entries). Easy peasy! I’ll pick a winner next week.

Busted Tees sent me the wrong size, but I bet it’s just right for either you or that special Star Wars fan in your life.

We Interrupt this Blog Silence to Bring You…

…the chance to win a cameo in my upcoming book!

That’s right, you heard me. I’ve been diligently working on the follow up to Bai Tide, Take the Bai Road, and will be submitting it to my publisher at the end of the month, which means it’s time to select my next lucky reader for a cameo in the book! This one’s a fun one: Mexican drug cartels, high-speed chases, gun fights, giant freighter ships, and treason, oh my!

Where do you fit into that mess? It’s time to find out.

Look at this cute kid. Don't you want to help him?

Look at this cute kid. Don’t you want to help him?

I’m doing this a little differently this time. Instead of spreading the word about my books to your friends and family, which I always appreciate, all you have to do to win a cameo is help. Yep, all you have to do is donate to the Haitian Health Foundation and not only will you feel like a good person, you could soon be an immortalized forever in my book AND still feel like a good person.


The reason I picked the HHF is, poor Haiti. They’ve barely been able to rebuild after the massive 2010 earthquake that destroyed so much of their infrastructure and killed so many people, and now they have to deal with Hurricane Matthew, which swept through on Wednesday, killing hundreds more. The HHF is an established charity that uses over 91% of the funds it collects to directly fund programs and medical supplies for the people who need them.

Hurricane Matthew. What a jerk.

Hurricane Matthew. What a jerk.

To enter, simply donate through their website, click the button to dedicate your donation to someone special, and type in my name (Erika Mitchell) and email address ( Or, if you prefer, you can donate and then just email or or comment here that you did it.

This is an excellent cause and believe me, you’ll enjoy your cameo if you do win so donate now and hopefully I’ll be drawing your name out of a digital hat soon!

Giveaways and whatnot

This is just a little update to let Brooke, Delisa, and all my newfound Goodreads friends know that I paid a (costly) visit to the post office today and shipped your books today. I shipped eleven books in total…Whew!

This won’t be the last time I offer free books, so don’t despair. Keep checking in with me here and on Facebook or Twitter.

For those of you who won, congrats! I hope you enjoy taking a tour of my brain.

And the Winner Is…

And the winner of a signed copy of my book and a cameo in my next book is…


For those of you who don’t know Brooke, she loves England and writes a charming blog and I wish she would update more often but she’s busy with her husband and adorable dog and I suppose that’s neither here nor there because we’re talking about how she won the contest, not how much I would like to read more of her blog posts.


Look for her in the pages of my new book, which is SO CLOSE TO BEING DONE I ALMOST CAN’T STAND IT. Who knows when it’ll be published though, so nobody hold your breath or anything. I still have to pitch it and get a publisher interested in it and then edit it and revise it and it could be years before it comes out. But still, when it does, Brooke will be in it. Yay Brooke!

In consideration and appreciation for the over-and-above-excellence displayed by Delisa, however, who really made me feel so very special by promoting my book to anyone and everyone, I’ll be sending her a signed copy of my book as a gesture of gratitude.

Thank you to everyone who entered the contest and helped spread the word about my new book. I appreciate all of you!
