Readers, friends, and followers, I've got an exciting giveaway to tell you about! Three prize bundles are up for grabs, and there are multiple ways you can earn an entry.

First, let me tell you about these prize bundles. If you'd like to rock a trendy nail color this summer like the heroine of my book Izzy As Is, you can't go wrong with any of the Deco Miami shades in these 4-piece manicure sets. Each trio of polishes comes with a crystal nail file, and let me tell you, these files are the bomb! I am totally obsessed with mine.

Nail Beauty Bundle #1 - Deco Miami Custom Trio Set of Nail Lacquer in Señorita (classic blue-toned red crème), Kitten's Paw (beige pink crème), and Champagne Mami (rose gold metallic) + Crystal Nail File in light pink

Nail Beauty Bundle #2 - Deco Miami Custom Trio Set of Nail Lacquer in Miley What's Good (bright fuchsia pink crème), Cake (neon pink crème), and Venetian Isle (light aqua crème) + Crystal Nail File in light pink

Nail Beauty Bundle #3 - Deco Miami Custom Trio Set of Nail Lacquer in Rosé All Day (peach pink crème), Petite Palm (mint green crème), and Namaste by the Pool (royal blue crème) + Crystal Nail File in light pink

Now here's what you need to do to earn an entry (or two, or three!) in this fabulous giveaway:

1) Leave a review for any of my books (Izzy As Is, Mixing It Up, Twin Piques, In Need of Therapy, Blame It on the Fame) on Amazon and/or Goodreads between July 12th, 2018 and August 12th, 2018. If you leave a review in both places, you can earn two entries! Reviews don't have to be essay-length, just a few lines telling people what you liked about the book and why they should buy it is plenty and will be greatly appreciated! And don't forget that anyone who leaves a review for Izzy As Is will receive a Bonus Short Story that's a missing scene from the book. Please e-mail me with a link to your review to get your entries in the giveaway.

2) If you haven't already subscribed to my author newsletter, The Banister Buzz, doing so between 7/12 and 8/12 will earn you an entry into this giveaway. If you're already a Buzzer, invite your RomCom-loving friends to subscribe to The Banister Buzz. You'll earn a giveaway entry for every new subscriber you recruit, and the new subscriber will earn an entry as well. So, both of you could end up winners! Readers can subscribe to my newsletter here. And don't forget to e-mail me with the name of the person/people you recruited so that everyone will get their entries!

And entering this giveaway is as simple as that. Just review and/or recruit and you could have the prettiest nails at the beach/pool this summer! I will choose my three winners via drawing and contact them on August 13th, 2018. Wishing all of you the best of luck!
