Holiday Giveaway!

16 Dec

blue-eyed-santaSo…Now that I have your attention–

I usually try to do something humorous and generally a bit risqué for my posts, as well as  relate it in some way to a writer’s life (and I’m gonna do exactly that), but I couldn’t without first acknowledging the horrible tragedy in Connecticut.

My thoughts and prayers are with all of those devastated families whose lives will never be the same.

On Sunday, December 16th  at 5:00pm EST, I will be lighting a candle and sending love and prayers out to them and I hope you will take the time to join me…wherever you are.

Individually, lighting a candle may seem like a small gesture, but healing doesn’t happen overnight. It happens in painfully small increments over time.

Similarly…it’s the small gestures—like the glow of a single candle—that offer strength and  hope and light in the darkest of times.

Pass this on.

    Tweet it.

       Share it with your friends on Facebook

              Stumble it! Tumble it! Pin it!

                      …and share it through any other social media groups you might belong to.

Let’s face it—Friday’s shooting has left its mark on ALL of us. It’s left us feeling hurt and helpless and at a loss to comprehend how something like this could happen.

We will probably never know the “why” of it, but it doesn’t matter at this point.

What DOES matter is that we survive it. That we move past the pain and sorrow and most importantly, that we cherish those we love and the time we have with them.

Because ya just never know how much time you have.

So remember…

Candle. 5pm EST, Sunday, 12/16/12. Pass it on!

Now, back to our regularly scheduled programing.

(There’s a BOOK GIVE AWAY and additional FREE READS included in today’s blog, so keep reading!)

Ornaments

********

It’s that time again. Egg Nog is flowing and Santa is “Ho Ho Ho-ing”

It’s the time when stockings are stuffed and men are hung.

Preferably WELL hung and waiting by the fire after everyone else is asleep!

I don’t know about you, but I am usually waaaaayy ahead of the shopping game

This year…I haven’t even STARTED!

What the heck happened to 2012?

It seems like I wrote my 2012 New Year’s resolutions about a week ago, and now DECEMBER is half over!

I do have Noelle's Gifta gift I can give right now…a copy of my “Merry Kinkmas” story, NOELLE’S GIFT.

Months of therapy go out the window for Noelle when Brad moves back to town. Her super-hot ex has tongues wagging and temperatures rising when he makes his first appearance at the company Christmas party. Everyone is curious about Brad and the rumors surrounding his arrival.

Noelle has all the answers, but can’t say a word without risking exposure of their past and her own dirty little secret to friends and coworkers who have no idea what really makes her tick—a fetish for fur…lots of fur.

 Just leave a comment below between now and 11:00EST on Monday, 12/17/12 and I’ll announce the winner on Tuesday!

Here’s another gift…a FREE ebook download from fellow “Passionate Reads” author, Marilyn Campbell.

TWISTED HUNGER, is an exquisitely crafted erotic suspense and Book II of Marilyn Campbell’s Lust & Lies series, can be downloaded FREE at both Amazon and iBooks for the rest of the month of December.

 Twisted Hunger-final coverTwisted Hunger by Marilyn Campbell      As Ellery Winters watches her mother’s casket being lowered into the ground, a stranger tells her murder may have been the true cause of death and that the vice presidential hopeful, Abraham Lincoln Jones, could have been involved. In order to uncover the truth, Ellery agrees to go under cover as Jones’ assistant.

      Two decades ago, Luke Madigan witnessed a whore gruesomely mutilating her client and has had nightmares of the event ever since. For several years the psychotic hooker, known as “The Eye Doctor”, left a trail of victims, but not enough clues to find her. When she strikes again, Luke determines to put an end to his nightmares, even if it means walking right into the Doctor’s waiting room.

      Though they don’t yet realize it, Ellery and Luke have a common goal. Their coming together is fueled by lies and distrust, but seduction and lust ignite a passion that will not be denied despite the deadly danger closing in on them.
