Valentine’s Day Gift Hop: Huge #prizes #Kindlepaperwhite #books

Welcome to the sexiest time of the year! Okay, I think that’s debatable.  For me, there’s something about the tweeting of birds and the appearance of little green shoots and early flowers in the spring that makes me want to sow my wild oats. But, hey, Valentine’s Day marks just a few short weeks left of winter, and it’s also all about the chocolate. If that doesn’t sweeten your sex drive, I don’t know what will. Personally, I made the mistake of weighing myself the other day (bad idea—don’t do it!!!!!) and realized I was up seven pounds. Son of a bitch. So, now I’m out on the chocolate and have banned myself from drinking wine or other delicious alcoholic beverages until the weekends. Valentine’s Day will be a cheat day, so I know I’ll be in the mood after a bag of Lindt truffles and a bottle of Shiraz. That, or I’ll be sick as a dog.

One thing that can always get me ready for love, though, is a hot read, and we’ve got broiling books aplenty lined up for the winning!

For this fabulous hop, I’m offering an ebook from my back-list; winner’s choice. To be eligible for the grand prizes, you need only comment at the stops. Feel free to let me know what your plans are for Valentine’s Day, what your favorite chocolate or wine is, or recommend a spicy-hot read for us to check out!

If you love someone, set him free. If he steals something of yours, hunt him down and make him sorry. Alex Bremen is over Chance Ralan. Ever since his high school boyfriend ditched him nine years ago, Alex has barely thought of Chance at all. Sure, Alex attended a concert or two when his ex’s band, Armageddon Showdown, was in the area, but that was more curiosity than anything else. Who wouldn’t want to see firsthand how his once clean-cut boyfriend transformed into a pierced and tattooed heavy metal god? But when Chance has the nerve to record a love song Alex wrote for him years ago, Alex crosses the country to confront him. Revenge becomes a dish best served sizzling hot. The two men lock horns, but find the chemistry between them has only intensified with time, and occasionally love needs to do some growing up before it can be done right.

If you love someone, set him free. If he steals something of yours, hunt him down and make him sorry.

On an alternate Earth, Key has his marriage ink placed out of duty to his friend, Kaya, but realizes his mistake too late.

And stop at any one of these blogs to register for fabulous giveaways and increase your odds of winning the grand prizes.

People aren’t always what they seem—but what if they aren’t even human?

Finding Inspiration in the Oddest Places: The SFR Brigade Midsummer Blog Hop

sfrb-bloghop-banner(1)

 

My five-year old guilted me into stepping away from my computer when I took him to a playground the other day.  Not another kid in sight, I was enlisted to play.  Damn.  And I had editing to do, too.  But he told me to hurry up and hop on his ship before the hot lava got me, and I had no choice but to leap onto a ladder.  I was already warming up to this game as I asked, “Ship?  Is it a space ship?”

“Yeah!” he answered, sensing my weakness and striking the killing blow without a blink.  That’s my boy. He’s also great at calling me his “sweet, beautiful mama,” when he wants something.  Totally works, even though I see through him, the little scoundrel.  Anyway, he launched into how we were on an inhospitable planet—okay, not those exact words—but he describes the lava, which goes from the boiling hot to the freezing cold variety after I ask which planet we’re on, and he says Pluto. 

Now, the kid knows Pluto’s damn cold. He’s also well aware that it isn’t considered a planet now.  But, like his mother, he refuses to give credence to whomever decided to revoke its planetary status.  It’s BS, we tell ya! Our Pluto planet will kick your unremarkable Kuiper Belt object‘s atmosphere any day of its 90,720-day year!

Anyway, we high-tailed-it off Pluto and blasted to a new planet where we put on our imaginary space gear before heading off to explore its primary-colored landscape and vaguely familiar rubbery terrain.  We were sent running back to the ship when a killer storm whipped up in the form of deadly acid rain.  And just for the record, I’m totally using that in my next sci-fi book. I just need to figure out the logistics, but the boy’s got some solid gold ideas!

What could have been a lackluster editing session while the kid went up and down the slide a few times between bouts of whining about being bored, became a role-playing, brainstorming session, complete with quality time with the youngest.  He has since suckered me into our space game on a number of occasions.  Not too long ago, I made him drive me to Saturn where I planted dill. A Shnozzle Bozzle, who resembled his older sister, attacked us, but eventually we befriended the odd creature and took it back to Earth with us. 

Odds are, the Shnozzle Bozzle won’t make it into my next book. Well, maybe a horror short where its introduction to Earth results in massive casualties to the indigenous species. But my point is that we need to be receptive to inspiration.  We can’t tune out the world and hide in our little writing caves hoping to come up with something extraordinary—lightning can’t strike us there!  

Get out.  Explore.  Have some fun, because living is the best way to get your brain chewing on the possibilities.

And if you hit a road block, find a five-year old.  They can help you remember what imagination is all about.  If nothing else, it will probably be fun!
