    As a special promotion for Nationals week, anyone who purchases the book between now and Monday, Jan. 30 and emails me the receipt (from Amazon, B&N, etc) will be entered into a drawing for a special autographed item from San Jose. :) My email address is jcomeaux4@gmail.com.

    A little OT, I know, but whatever happened to all those serial fanfics like On the Edge and Rink Rat Rumors after that website closed? Are they archived anywhere else? I feel like a little stroll down skatefic memory lane.

    I'm extending the promotion through Feb. 6 since it's running on my blog and I didn't get my Nationals posts up timely. Enter for a chance to win a poster signed by Meryl Davis and Charlie White! Thanks to everyone who's already sent in their entries :)

    This was a great, quick read. It sucked me in and I stayed up WAY too late last night to finish it!

    I've had a few people email me in the wee hours to tell me they couldn't go to sleep before finishing! Sorry I kept you up :) but so glad you enjoyed it!

    I started writing it yesterday! Working title - Edges of the Past :)

    If anyone who read the book would like to leave a review on Amazon or B&N, I would be so grateful. I'm always looking for more feedback!

    Just finished it on my Kindle this morning on the subway ride to work. LOVED it!!! I'm a sucker for a good love story, especially one on ice :) Nice work, TanithandBenFan! Looking forward to the sequel!

    I truly enjoyed the book. Fun and quick read- I too couldn't put it down and stayed up way too late to finish it!

    You and me both! Having the print copy in my hands will complete the dream. :) Our cover artist emailed me this week for information for the back cover, so it shouldn't be too much longer!

    I read it this past weekend, and I couldn't put it down! I couldn't sleep until I finished it last night--which was probably not a good idea since we were losing an hour. It was such an engaging story and kept me wanting more. I really felt the chemistry between Sergei and Emily leap off of my Kindle. Great job with this book TanithandBenFan/Jennifer! :) Writing an Amazon review for it after my finals are over is on my to-do list!

    Thank you so much! Emily and Sergei are near and dear to my heart, so it makes me so happy to hear you say that. I'm working hard on the next chapter of their story. :) Thanks in advance for the Amazon review!

    Romancing the Book is holding a contest where you can win the soundtrack to Life on the Edge. The CD has most of the music mentioned in the book, including the pieces used for skating. You can see the track listing and enter here!
