Contests and Giveaways

Mailing List and Blog Giveaways:

Join the mailing list for my newsletter, which comes out every 4-6 weeks.  I often give away an autographed novel or a $15 gift card to one lucky reader on my list, although with quarantine, the giveaway has been temporarily halted.

If you’re on my mailing list you are already automatically eligible and don’t have to do another thing.  The only way to enter is to sign up for my mailing list, and you must do that yourself using this link.

International winners are eligible for the gift card only. When you sign up for the mailing list please be sure to include first and last names. I must have those in order to announce the winner. The winner is only notified in the newsletter, not by email or post office mail. So check each month to see if the contest is in play and you’re the lucky recipient.


Enjoy a colorful autographed bookplate for your new copy of any of Emilie’s novels. These are particularly nice for gifts you’ve bought for friends or family. To receive up to three, just send a stamped, self-addressed envelope to Emilie Richards/ PO Box 228, Chautauqua, NY 14722. Please include personalization information, if desired.
