2013 is here! Time for another blog hop :)

Hello world!

It's that time again - the time for an amazing blog hop with amazing authors giving away amazing prizes! The New Year's Blog Hop

It's another year over! Can you believe it? I can't figure out where it all went!
This was a great year for me professionally because I started to do what I love to do--write. It was really a year of in with the old and out with the new. I had a few non-stellar experiences, true, such as a stay at the hospital, but I learned from everything, good or bad. I learned that life is short and we should all try to be happy and work toward that state as best we can.

Now, about this blog hop!

Well we authors, readers, and bloggers sure can't. And to celebrate the New Year with bang, we're going crazy and sending out so many prizes, fun parties, experiences, and other goodies, that it's a bit scary. Each author has a favorite New Year memory, book, idea, or way to party and we're going to show you! Can't wait to see you January 1st - 6th!

And while we do that, we are EACH doing a giveaway. Yep. There will be over 200 giveaways on each blog hosted by that Author or Blogger.

But that's not all....

We have THREE grand prizes. You as a reader can go to EACH blog and comment with your email address and be entered to win. Yep, you can enter over 200 times!

Now what are those prizes?

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!

And while we do that, we are EACH doing a giveaway. Yep. There will be close to 200 giveaways on each blog hosted by that Author or Blogger.

My giveaway? 
Why not load up those e-readers you just got? :)
1. So I'm offering three free downloads of An Eternity of Roses (The Valthreans: Book 1) as soon as it's released shortly in Jan 2012 - in the format of your choice.
2. I'm also dropping a $1o gift card in the mix - winner's choice Amazon or B&N

How do you enter the drawing to win these prizes?
By following the simple instructions in the Rafflecopter below... (NOTE: I don't send e-mail often to readers - not more than once a month. I message readers ONLY when I have a new release or for important announcements.)

After completing the above, please also comment below with your e-mail address to be entered into the main drawing for the three MEGA prizes mentioned above!.

"...‘Til the end of my life, I shall belong to you as your husband.”
That was the promise Adrian made to Emmaline.

And then, he was gone forever...

Two lovers separated by an evil curse...

It is 1807. Adrian Segrave, Viscount Bournemouthe, and Lady Emmaline Deramore are about to wed and British Society teems with excitement at this imminent love match. But Madeline de Brandeville, a mysterious Frenchwoman, has her lustful and ambitious sights on the groom. When she sets her cruel plan in motion, she leaves devastation in her path.

A quest through time...

Heartbroken, Emmaline embarks on an adventure she'd never imagined having. As the world changes and chaos brews, her fate becomes linked with the Valthreans, a group of immortals who must learn to face a deadly enemy that threatens their place in the human world. But all the while, there is one thing she wants more than any other -- to get back her man.

When she finally finds her prize, he does not have a single memory of her, and her worst nightmares are far from over.

Is this love meant to be, after all?
Disclaimer: Do not read this novel if you dislike drop dead sexy heroes, strong heroines, intriguing immortals, magic, spells, mystery, amazing adventures, exotic settings, secret cults, and sensual love scenes.

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.

Hmm,plans. For 2013, I have in mind to finish up with my classes and find a decent job if at all possible. :) Nothing too earth shattering, just working towards accomplishing those goals.
