Friday Fireworks Blog Hunt

Hey there and Happy Friday!

If I’m your first stop welcome or if I’m your next on the blog hunt I hope you’re having fun. There’s a fantastic prize up for grabs for the Blog Hunt, a Kindle Fire, and I’m offering up my BLUE JEANS AND HARD HATS series here on my blog.

 

My BLUE JEANS AND HARD HATS series features hard bodied handy-men and sassy women in need of some DIY help.

Another feature of the Blue Jeans books is BDSM. Something that’s been in the news a lot lately due to 50 Shades of Grey. While I’m not going to compare my books to 50 Shades, I am going to say that when I write about BDSM I write from experience.

I recently wrote a blog leading up to the BDSMapalooza the Smutketeers held expressing what BDSM is to me. If you’re interested you can check it out here. If you’re still playing with the Blog Hunt here’s a little snippet that sums up my thoughts.

BDSM has opened my eyes in a way nothing else I’ve ever encountered has. I am profoundly grateful I happened up on the lifestyle years ago. And yes, the sexual benefits are…incredible. But it’s not all or even mostly about sex. Not for me at least. There’s more, much more below the surface.

To be entered to win an eCopy of the entire BLUE JEANS AND HARD HATS series tell me what you think of BDSM or the hype around 50 Shades of Grey. Have you read it? Do you plan on it? I’ll pick a winner at random and post it here on my blog on Monday (May 28). The winner will have until Thursday (May 31) at Noon MST to contact my PA.

 

Here’s my question for Friday Fireworks: There is something about Jenn’s book that is unlike any other romance novel out there. What is it? (Check out the name of her website.)

St. Patrick’s Day Blog Hop

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!
