What’s your favorite part about my releases?
Besides the actual stories because that’s too obvious…
Because you know I have the weirdest giveaways. This time it’s part of a HUGE anthology so you have many, many ways to enter, lucky ducky.
Wait, before I dazzle you with pretty shiny things…let’s get the actual release out to gawk at and praise:
8 Stories for only 99 cents!!! (Available as a set for a limited time.)
Virtual Match is your one-stop shop to convincing those nosy relatives, the too friendly coworker, or your ex that you’re off the market. We’ll match you with an attentive boyfriend or girlfriend. Texts, emails, calls, even gifts. All the fun of a relationship-well, almost all the fun-and none of the commitment. You might even forget it’s not real.
Lip Service by Wendy Sparrow: Amputee Berg is struggling with civilian life. Dating is perilous, but the girl next door is oh so tempting. His new gig as “virtual boyfriend” allows him to bask in her sunshine without risking rejection. Roxie has tried cupcakes and pizza and her neighbor doesn’t adore her yet. He recommends Virtual Match to get rid of a slimy coworker, but she absolutely can’t fall for her new fake boyfriend.
On to the Giveaway!
I’m giving away something gorgeous this time.
It’s an actual recycled circuit board necklace from Recomputing. The handmade heart is red and approx. 35 x 40 mm (1 1/4″ x 1 1/2″) and the silver chain is 55 cm. (I agonized over the length because I wanted it JUST. RIGHT.) (For more information on Recomputing, see the end of this post.)
I’m also doing my usual and giving away a second prize of a $10 USD Amazon gift card. Everyone is a winner!
Okay, two people. Two people are winners.

Yay!!! More good stuff to read! Yay!!! A giveaway! Just yay!!! (And it’s Friday, too! 🙂 )
Yay! For all of those things! *high-fives*
Love your books and your giveaways. Thank you!! 🙂
Thank you! This necklace is really gorgeous in person. I wish I’d ordered two of them.
That is one of the most clever ideas I’ve seen for a necklace in a while.
They sell a bunch of different items that are similar. I linked them at the end of the post. I’m really impressed with the craftsmanship. So beautiful.
Impressive. I love it.
Oh, it’s so beautiful. Even the box it came in is very, very stylish. I’m so impressed with the stuff I’ve bought on Etsy.
Love this necklace. Oh, and you. But mostly the necklace.
And I love you back, Jenny…as well as the necklace. *strokes necklace box* I love the necklace a lot. *Gollums necklace*
This is possibly more awesome than the snowflake necklace. You always choose the prettiest gifts!!
Thank you! It is pretty awesome. Although, you might question my taste if you come to the FB release party. I’m giving away a naked mole rat. 😉
Oh my goodness. That is so, so, so beautiful, and it matches the theme of the book so well!
It really does. I picked the red heart to match the cover too. 😀
As somebody who works in computer science, this necklace is just perfect for me 😉 Even if I don’t win, at least my boyfriend will have an idea for a future present for me.
If you haven’t already, you should check out their Etsy shop. I think I’m going to buy a butterfly necklace from them. Maybe I’ll get it for myself for my upcoming birthday…
That necklace is beautiful! I may be the prettiest one you’ve given away.
I might just agree actually. Though I did like the wolf one also.
Wendy, I love your giveaways. They’re unusual and apropos to whatever story you’re promoting. Somehow. You are absolutely amazing .
Thank you! I do like to find things that fit but are off the beaten path. It’s a little more fun that way. *hugs*
So so so pretty!!!! I wannit. 🙂
