Carrie Lofty Guest Post and GIVEAWAY

I Spy…

Carrie Lofty

Thanks so much to Ramblings for having me stop by! I’m excited to talk about “A Little More Scandal.” At just $.99… Take a chance! This is an adorable intro to my Christies series of Victorian romances.

It’s one of Pocket’s first original digital releases. You can read more about those fabulous new originals here, including an extended excerpt of “A Little More Scandal.”

But there. Aside from the blurb, that’s my sales pitch. Let’s do some silly stuff…

Let’s play “I Spy,” shall we? I’m sitting in my living room. Below, I will describe five things I can see from here on my couch. And I’ll do it in haiku form. Sure I’ll be offering up a free copy of FLAWLESS to some lucky commenter (see details below), but I’ll also send a copy of NIGHTFALL, my co-written RITA™-nominated paranormal romance, to the person who most accurately guesses these items.



Brown necessity

Of dairy state winter cold.

Also warms my head.


Cheap, tarnished gold frame.

Couple smiling, embracing,

Wearing black and white.


Gray, perfect and small.

Gray, fat and so very dumb.

Brown, grumpy and old.

(That’s a tricky one, because it’s three individual examples of one answer.)


Hot, noisy laptop

Pricked with wires of all types—

On what do you sit?


Piles, stacks, piles.

Stacks, piles, stacks, piles, stacks.

Piles, stacks, piles.

I’m really curious if anyone gets close!! Good luck, and I look forward to see what you come up with.

Next up for Carrie:

STARLIGHT, the second full-length romance in the Christies series, is set in Victorian Glasgow. It just got a 4 ½ stars Top Pick from RT BookReviews, and comes out on June 26th. Then comes Pocket Star digital original, HIS VERY OWN GIRL. It’s a historical romance set in WWII—an honest to goodness historical romance! Available September 4.
