New Year's Blog Hop!


Wow, another blog hop so soon after the last one? The holiday spirit must be strong in the romance/erotica blogosphere! I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday, whether you were bouncing around from party to party, or just relaxing with a good book. (Either way, I hope there were plenty of scrumptious goodies to eat and drink!)

For my little stop along the New Year's hop, I want to focus on new things. I'd like to think I learn something new with every project I start, and I'm looking forward to branching out even further. This year, I want to try my hand in a few sub-genres that are new to me, and I also want to have some of my established characters get similarly creative and adventurous. Stay tuned to find out how that all works out. ;) 

To go along with this "new" theme, two lucky winners will get a sneak peek at the first two chapters of Disintegration! (coming out at the end of February) To keep the excitement going further into the year, I'll send the winners an e-copy of the book itself on its premiere date!

But that's not all! Entering/leaving a comment here (don't forget your email address!) will automatically enter you into the main giveaway, where you could win one of the grand prizes! They are:


1st Grand Prize: A Kindle Fire or Nook Tablet
2nd Grand Prize: A $300 Amazon or B&N Gift Card
3rd Grand Prize: A Swag Pack that contains paperbacks, ebooks, 50+ bookmarks, cover flats, magnets, pens, coffee cozies, and more! (US only)

Good luck, and have an amazing 2013!

  11. First congrats on your book and good luck venturing into new genres. One thing I'm going to try this year is to read a whole lot more and hopefully by the end of 2013 be able to say as so many do (although Idk how they do it) that I read 100 books lol so good luck to me. Thank you for the blog hop and awesome prizes. Happy New Year!

  23. As I sit here, my husband is working on what we want to do this year...take a real family vacation. We have been married for 15 years and haven't taken the kids anywhere. Many reasons why, but this year, we are changing that. Looking for a pet friendly cabin for a week's vacation. We will do it.
    Best of luck in your goals and Happy New Year.

  77. One new thing I plan to try this year is Pinterest. I set up the account a few hours ago. I'm trying to verify my website right now. (In the "sink or swim" scenario... I'd say I'm sinking! I have no idea where a metatag goes, what a index.html file is, or how clicking the upload file which just took me back to the same page that says I can click for the upload file is supposed to do anything! I'm also pretty sure I just broke something, as my page has been trying to republish itself for the last 30 mins now. Metatag bad? Trying new things... not always the best plan...)

    Oh no, I seem to have left a long rant! Sorry. I don't know what other new thing I'll get to try this year. I had a new flavor of sushi at the end of last year. It was called a "shaggy dog" roll. I'm pretty sure it was a veggie roll with the rice on the outside, some fake lump crabmeat which had been sliced in a fancy way, and a few panko bread crumbs on top. It was pretty good though.
