Spring Fling Blog Hop

When my friend Selena Blake asked me to participate in her Spring Fling Blog Hop, I just couldn’t say no. So, here we are…

Thinking of Spring for me is…flowers in bloom, mild sunshine, windows open to let in the breezes and fresh air after a Winter of being closed up, freshly mowed grass, bright colors in the closet, and loads of new fruits and veggies…

My two favorite seasons of the year are Spring and Autumn. However, Spring this year has been more like early Summer. It’s been in the 90’s, everything bloomed earlier than normal, and let us not forget those AWESOME allergies! Grins…

But, it is still technically Spring and we’re just gonna go with it!

For the blog hop, I am going to giveaway book which are not my own… 3 of them, in fact.

1. Amanda Usen‘s Scrumptious… Now who doesn’t love a hot man and 5 tiers of cupcakes?

2. Carly Phillips‘ Serendipity… Hot yummy on a motorcycle.

3. Bella Andre‘s The Look of Love…Because we all want that look from the man of our dreams.

I have interacted with all of these women. Amanda is turning into a dear friend. I do writing sprints with Carly and several other authors and they’ve been truly inspirational. And Bella is such a kind and amazing woman who is very open and generous with her time and thoughts even though she’s so incredibly busy.

In one way or another, these 3 authors inspire me, make me laugh, make me smile, and I wanted to share that with you through their books. This is also an international giveaway as I will send the books through Bookdepository.com.

To win: tell me what your favorite thing about Spring is!  (this one IS mandatory to be entered)

And… (the following is not mandatory for entry, but would be AWESOME!)

If you do not follow me anywhere, I’d be really appreciative if you would… You can LIKE my Facebook fan page, FOLLOW me on Twitter, or SIGN-UP for my Newsletter. There’s also, the option of following my blog by email, Linky Friends, and Networked Blogs. All the information is on the sidebar. Look ——> aren’t those coffee cups adorable? (Scroll down to find the Linky Friends, Networked Blogs, and email sign up…)

It would be really awesome if you gave a follow or shout out to Selena Blake, Reading Between the Wines, and Bitten by Paranormal Romance for putting the hop together!

And so, that’s it! I hope you have all kinds of fun during this hop and if you weren’t enjoying Spring before, maybe you will by the time the hop is over.

A Little Story About A Story And A Cover

Once upon a time, there was a little bird named Samantha.

Now, Samantha was considered a wonderful and dear friend to Lissa and she knew how much Lissa liked to read male/male erotic romance.

Samantha, such a delightful friend suggested to Lissa that she should consider writing stories in this genre she loves so much. One thing, dear readers that you must understand about Samantha is the simple fact that she writes stories in this genre as well as the male/male/female genre and so coming from such an esteemed and successful writer, Lissa took Samantha’s suggestion to heart.

Over the course of a couple of months, some serious thought went into this idea. Lissa had considered writing male/male before, had even written a very short male/male free read, but had primarily focused on male/female contemporary. But Samantha had put a bug in Lissa’s ear to write male/male, to try her hand at it and Lissa couldn’t stop thinking about it, couldn’t stop wanting to try and so she took her very short free read out of the storage closet, added a few words, polished it up, sent it off to a few friends to read, including Samantha (whom Lissa hasn’t heard back from yet…) Thoughts so far though on Lissa’s effort are good and positive.

Armed with a little confidence and a lot of nerves, Lissa is aiming to self-publish this little collection of male/male spanking stories, 5K each.

The End.

Grins…

I even have a cover, created by the wonderful Valerie Tibbs. I am working on the second 5K story and will then move on to the third one. I’ll keep y’all informed as to a release for it.

A big thank you for the faith of author Samantha Kane. And a big thank you to those already self-published who are helping me along this new avenue: Melissa Schroeder, Eliza Gayle, Selena Blake, Bella Andre.
