Given my love of wine, y’all had to know I would want to participate in this! I really enjoy having a glass of wine while making dinner, sometimes while writing in the evenings, or while reading a good book. Thank you to Reading-Romances.com for hosting this pre-party blog hop and then hosting their blogiversary party for all of us to enjoy on March 29th!
My favorite wines are Muscadine wines from Duplin Winery here in North Carolina:
They are sweet, and not acidic. I prefer their reds and blushes rather than their whites. Most white wines tend to be too dry for me, however, I have found that Moscato wines are lovely in their sweetness, in their fruitiness. I buy mine from Trader Joe’s. And I don’t spend a lot of $$$ on wine. Less than $10. However…OMG…I bought what’s called an Eiswein from Trader Joe’s and it was definitely more than $10 and I am so in love with it. It’s sweet and delicate and the grapes are harvested at 17 degress F. When they are COLD! Delicious stuff…
Now, for the giveaway… I am going to give away 3 of any of my backlist along with a $25 gift card to Barnes and Noble or Amazon.
If you’d like, feel free to Like my Facebook fan page, follow me on Twitter, follow my blog by any of the three options available, or sign up for my Newsletter. All graphics and icons are on the side bar… These are not required, however if you think you’d like to be kept up to date with me and my books and find out more about me as a writer and a person, then I’d be happy to have you!
Will you be wearing green on St. Patrick’s Day? Will you be drinking green cocktails and green beer?
Will you be or are you already partying in Savannah, Georgia where the famous fountain in Forsythe Square gushes green water and the partying goes all into the very wee hours of the morning?
What about in Chicago where the river is dyed green?
Will you make green eggs and ham? Or green cupcakes with green frosting? I think I will probably make cupcakes…chocolate fudge cupcakes with green frosting. I’ll wear my green glasses and my green t-shirt, and put my hair in a pony tail with a green hair band. I’ll even wear green earrings. But, to be honest with you, that’s the most I’ll do.
I’ve never been a big party person and have chosen to live vicariously through my younger sister who loves to party. She’s been to the Savannah St. Patrick’s Day celebrations. I am, officially, a stick in the mud when it comes to such things. But, I know there are some of you who aren’t as dull and boring as me and well, we’re gonna celebrate that!
If you’ve been to my blog before during a blog hop, you know I LOVE to ask questions. I want your feedback. I want to see who YOU are, even if it’s just a little, tiny slice of you. This blog hop is gonna be no different. So, tell me… Do you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in party fashion or are you quiet and unassuming like me and simply wear green? Or are you one of the naughty ones who defy convention and NOT wear green so someone will pinch you? C’mon y’all, let’s talk green…
In exchange for your comments, you’ll be put into the Grand Prize drawings…
Grand Prize 1 – Kindle Fire or Nook Tablet (winner’s choice)
Grand Prize 2 – $90 Amazon or Barnes and Noble Gift Card (winner’s choice)
Those are fabulous prizes and I’m so thrilled we were all able to contribute so y’all could have a chance to win such awesome things! All the individual blogs will be giving their own prizes as well and mine is no different. I’ll be choosing a name from among the commenters on my blog here for a chance to win a $20 gift card to Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Starbucks, or Caribou Coffee along with 3 of my backlist titles.
All you have to do is leave answers to my questions above in the comments area. Now, I have a Newsletter, a Twitter account, a Facebook page, email sign up to follow my blog, along with Networked Blogs, and Linky. I would love it if you were interested enough in me and my books to sign up or follow me in some way, shape, or form, however it is not necessary or required to be entered into the drawing for books and the gift card. But, if you did feel so inclined, all the options are on the sidebar over ——-> there.
So, let’s get this show on the road!
Below, you’ll also find the links to all the other blogs on the hop…
Thanks for stopping by, and thanks to Carrie Ann Ryan for organizing this hop!
With the help of Random.org, the winner of the Feelin’ Lucky Giveaway Hop has been chosen. Her name is Kristin and she has been contacted by me for delivery of her prizes. Thank you to all who commented, who stopped by… I truly appreciate it. Thank you as well to I Smell Sheep and Fictional Candy for organizing the hop.
There are several others I will be participating in over the next couple of months, so… stay tuned and picks some books to read 😉
Yes, yes, yes! We’re participating in another giveaway hop. Don’t y’all like how I always say ‘we’re’ most of the time instead of just ‘I’. I do. I like it to sound and be as though y’all are included because well, those of you who read this blog on a steady basis ARE included. All the time.
So, for the next 7 days, hopefully some new readers and visitors are going to drop by, take a look around, give a comment or two, and maybe, just maybe a few of them will come back and join in regular like. 😉
In this hop, I am going to be giving away a cute tote bag that says “When I get a little money, I buy books; and if any is left over, I buy food and clothes.” The saying is by Erasmus and the sentiment is something all of us can probably relate to. Now, along with this tote bag, I’m going to be giving away a $20 gift card to Barnes and Noble or Amazon.com. Your choice, of course.
What do you have to do to enter? It’s simple really. Answer the following question by leaving a comment. I’d love it and it’d be really cool if you wanted ‘Like’ my Facebook page or sign up for my newsletter or follow my blog on Networked Blogs (all options are over on the side bar ——> ), but it’s not a requirement for this hop.
So, my question is… who was your teen idol? I started thinking about Davy Jones when he passed away last week and while the Monkees were already done by the time I knew who they were, I still loved them. I loved David Cassidy from the Partridge Family and loved Shawn Cassidy in the Hardy Boys. But those were when I was little. In my teens, my early teens I had a thing for Nick Rhodes of Duran Duran. I still have a thing for him, too. In my late teens, it was Richie Sambora and Nikki Sixx. I wasn’t much for the actors in my teens but the musicians… Who was yours?
I’ll pick the winner on March 14th…
Best of Luck to you all! And don’t forget to head off to the next blog…
