Happy Birthday to Me! No, I’m not shy about liking my birthday or wanting to celebrate or share it with people.
I need to apologize about yesterday and no post or giveaway. I am cross-eyed, even as I type this. I spent all day and night working on Forever In Blue Jeans. There were…complications. I’m fixing to fix those and finish it up and upload it. However, I have promised presents and dammit all, we’re gonna have presents.
I found these and while I haven’t tried one yet myself, when you try one, I’m gonna try one…
They’re called Keep Cups. Reusable, sustainable, barista grade and approved coffee cups. They come 4 size options and any color combo you can think of. Me, I’m simple. Y’all might not be, though.
Of course, if you don’t drink coffee, you can use one for hot tea or hot cocoa. Heck, hot soup even.
I am giving away 2 of the Medium (12oz) sizes. You have until Saturday at 6pm EST to enter. How do you do that? Leave me a comment here and tell me your favorite color from childhood AND your favorite color as an adult (if it’s changed.) My favorite all time color is purple. But, there are times, I’ve gone through phases of preferring other colors. I always end up back at purple though.
So, the Keep Cup is Present #2. Presents, yes plural, #3, will be gift cards. I have several to disburse of. They will given tonight in the Righteous Perverts chat. If you do not attend, can’t attend, etc… Don’t worry. Present giving is not over for the week. Remember, I still have a Keurig to let go of… There will be gift cards, more books, and and other things given…
For now, I need coffee. I need to fix what’s wrong with Forever In Blue Jeans, and I need to get ready for a pilgrimage to South Carolina where the nearest Publix is.
Remember… Leave me a comment here about your favorite color from childhood and your favorite color from adulthood, if it’s changed. Make sure to leave your email address as well so you can be contacted.
(P.s. there will be second post on the blog later today… And don’t forget you can still enter the tote bag and book presents giveaway here.)

Wednesday is my actual birthday, but as some of you know, I usually have a month long celebration on my blog here. I didn’t do it this year…obviously, but never fear, I’ll be back to it next year with authors and bloggers telling stories and giving away presents to readers. For now, though, you’ll have to settle for it just being me.
Presents this year will consist of books (including my new release, Forever In Blue Jeans, book 3 in my Blue Jeans and Hard Hats series), gift cards, tote bags, coffee items, cupcake items, and the big one…no, not an ereader, not an iPad, we authors do those all the time, but rather, a Keurig.
Yes, this one. It brews 3 cup sizes, you can program the time on and time off, even program the water temperature. I adore mine. Y’all know I adore mine. Unless I’m having iced coffee crack, I use my Keurig every day. It might be for hot water to make hot chocolate for the family, or to use the already hot water for instant oatmeal, but it gets used every day. You can get tea, coffee, and cocoa in K-cups. I generally prefer the coffee or tea or just hot water. I don’t care for the hot cocoa K-cups, but that’s just me, I know others who love them.
So, that’s the birthday list… Don’t be surprised though, if I change it up a little and add a few other little things here and there.
Today, is a tote bag I found at Barnes and Noble. It’s bright, colorful, and perfect for toting books.
I know many still read print books, but whether you do or not, you can never have too many tote bags (okay, you can because I’ve been told I have too many, but…I don’t listen and neither should you). Along with the tote bag, you will receive 3 books. What 3 books is up to you. Whether digital or print (up to $15 per book), is up to you.
What do you have to do?
Tell me what 3 books or what series you’ve always wanted to read, but just never have.
Are there classics like Linda Howard, Julie Garwood, Elizabeth Lowell, or Susan Johnson that you’ve never read and wanted to?
What about Nalini Singh, Larissa Ione, or J. R. Ward?
How about Shayla Black or Maya Banks? Delilah Devlin? Lori Foster? Dakota Cassidy?
Mari Carr? Vivian Arend? Cat Johnson? Melissa Schroeder? Samantha Kane? Cherise Sinclair? Moira Rogers? Eliza Gayle?
Tessa Dare? Jess Michaels? Julia Quinn? Lisa Kleypas? Nicole Jordan? Courtney Milan?
There are so many to choose from and those names above don’t even scratch the surface of good books out there. I haven’t read even a fraction of all the books I want to read, of all the books I keep saying I’ll get to just as soon as I can. So, tell me, what do you want to read that you simply haven’t yet?
The winner of the tote bag and books will be chosen Friday by noon and posted Friday afternoon. There will be giveaways all week long here on my blog. There will be one on my Facebook Fan Page as well, along with one during the Author Chat at Righteous Perverts on Wednesday night, February 22nd. So, feel free to come by and ‘Like’ my Fan Page, feel free to drop by the chat Wednesday night and meet some authors and fellow readers. Of course, none of these extras are required, but I did want to give you the options of all presents.
Most questions you’ll have to answer this week are about birthdays, so…be ready to divulge information. 😉
Have a great Monday, y’all… Oh, and don’t forget, you have until 6PM EST today (Monday, February 20th) to enter to win books or M&M’s from my celebratory post after Kyle Busch and the #18 M&M’s Toyota won the Budweiser Shootout in Daytona on Saturday night. Click here to be taken to that post…
