The Djinn’s Dilemma Birthday Bash with author Mina Khan

Hi, this is Mina Khan and I write genie romances. And I have some fun news for you!

Remember when you were a kid and you used to love birthdays? Well, I still do…especially when it’s of my first published story. So we are going to CEL-A-BRATE! And I’m thrilled to be here, sharing the deets!

The Djinn’s Dilemma, my sexy paranormal romance about a genie assassin who falls for his human target, celebrates its one-year publication anniversary November 1st! Woot!

So much has happened in a year!

The Djinn’s Dilemma won 2012 Best Novella in the Romance Through The Ages published contest.

I published two more stories: A Tale of Two Djinns and DEAD: A Ghost Story.

The Djinn’s Dilemma was chosen as a Book of the Month read (starting Nov. 1…how cool is that?) by the Goodreads group: Paranormal Romance: New and Upcoming Books/Authors (Join us for the read if you can…there will be dishing & a separate set of prizes!!!)

But the very best part of the one year has been connecting with readers and fellow authors. It’s amazing how shared stories can bring strangers together and turn them into friends.

So to express my thanks, I now have some goodies for y’all!

All month, we're going to have prizes & SurPrizes!

Jewelry, books, chocolate, art, and a special peacock box of goodies!  Many of my author friends have jumped in to help celebrate and a big thank you goes out to: Lucie J. Charles, Cynthia Eden, Katie Reus, Laura Kaye, and Rebecca Zanetti. Mina has now added a Sherrilyn Kenyon package to my DjinnsDilemma Birthday Bash giveaway. It includes a SIGNED hardback copy of her Dance with the Devil & more. 

There will be giveaways announced every Monday & Wednesday on my Facebook Author Page, a Goodreads BOTM giveaway every Friday, and a big Rafflecopter giveaway on November 30. All as a way of saying thank you, thank, thank you!

So, without further ado, here are pictures of some of the things you can win! Good luck!

Author Bio

Mina Khan is a Texas-based writer and food enthusiast. She grew up in Bangladesh on stories of djinns (pronounced "gins"), ghosts and monsters. These childhood fancies now color her fiction. She daydreams of hunky paranormal heroes, magic, mayhem and mischief and writes them down as tales of romance and adventure.

Her first published work, The Djinn's Dilemma, won the novella category of the 2012 Romance Through The Ages (published) contest.

Fifty percent of the proceeds from her second novella, A Tale of Two Djinns, is donated to UNICEF for education. Two Djinns is a Romeo & Juliet tale with genies, feminists and a happy ending.

Her newest release, DEAD: A Ghost story, is NOT a romance. It’s a multicultural ghost-story that highlights a little known aspect of the immigrant experience.
