Romance is in the Air – blog hop giveaway

Welcome to this pretty blog hop!
My giveaway is a digital copy of the recently released GREAT AND THE GOBLIN KING by the fantabulous Chloe Jacobs. This gem has been on my to-read list for months, so my winner and I just might be reading it at the same time! 
While trying to save her brother from a witch’s fire four years ago, Greta was thrown in herself, falling through a portal to Mylena, a dangerous world where humans are the enemy and every ogre, ghoul, and goblin has a dark side that comes out with the eclipse.

To survive, Greta has hidden her humanity and taken the job of bounty hunter—and she’s good at what she does. So good, she’s caught the attention of Mylena’s young goblin king, the darkly enticing Isaac, who invades her dreams and undermines her will to escape.

But Greta’s not the only one looking to get out of Mylena. An ancient evil knows she’s the key to opening the portal, and with the next eclipse mere days away, every bloodthirsty creature in the realm is after her—including Isaac. If Greta fails, she and the lost boys of Mylena will die. If she succeeds, no world will be safe from what follows her back…

AND….since I feel like celebrating Monday’s release of SPEAKING OF LOVE (the second book in my Perfect Kisses blissful e-series), I’m also throwing in an digital copy of book one PLAYING AT LOVE. Hooray! 
 
This is how you enter to win all the stuff….. a Rafflecopter giveaway

R is for Reading

I don’t have much to say about this. #1. . . because I’m on vacation now and I’m blogging this three days in advance, and all I can think about is the where I’ll be in just a few hours (not HERE, that’s for sure). And #2. . . because, well, what can be said about reading? It’s one the those glorious pleasures in life. Right up there with cupcakes. Am I write? I mean right? See. . . my mind is already on vay-cay.

I’ve packed the books I’ll be reading while away this week, and can’t wait to board that plane and have 5 hours of (relatively) uninterrupted READING. 
Pure bliss, I say.

So, what are you reading these days? I’d love some suggestions.

G is for Gatsby

(And while we’re at it, I’m checking off #2 on my LIST)

 

(Okay, F. Scott…..you had me at the title page.)
Bonus:
G is also for gazpacho. Which I made for the first time yesterday. I figured since I’m having one of my characters make it, I should learn too. Check it out:

a present to you from you

I wish you books . . . 

Read a book!
Because it makes you smarter.
Because it’s fun.
Because it sharpens your wit and develops your capacity for empathy.
Because it makes the existential void a little less like a black hole.
Because it allows you to defy the laws of physics and travel through time and space.
Because it forces you to consider other opinions, other practices, other “right” ways to do things.
Because it allows you to walk into the most well attended, interesting party, listen in on outrageous conversations, get caught up on all the gossip…and leave whenever you want.
Because the more you read, the more your brain and soul expand.
Because you can’t be lonely when you’re immersed in a good book.
Because just this year, I’ve hung out with Keith Richards and Patti Smith, fallen in love with Hemingway all over again, realized that Dr. Seuss writes the best self-help books, been dazzled by Jonathan Franzen and Jennifer Egan, transported by Mary Stewart, titillated by Eloisa James, and tickled by Nora Ephron’s latest review of her crazy life.
Because I can’t imagine how bleak the world would be without books to record and re-imagine our achievements and losses, our triumphs and tragedies, and all the greatness and smallness of our shared humanity.
So, go to your nearest bookstore or click on the “buy now” button on your eReader and get a book (or books) and start reading.  
Then, tell everyone about it.
