Hope you all enjoy the giveaway hop!
When Calla Tor wakes up in the lair of the Searchers, her sworn enemies, she’s certain her days are numbered. But then the Searchers make her an offer—one that gives her the chance to destroy her former masters and save the pack—and the man—she left behind. Is Ren worth the price of her freedom? And will Shay stand by her side no matter what? Now in control of her own destiny, Calla must decide which battles are worth fighting and how many trials true love can endure and still survive.
Bethany and Xavier are even closer since battling Jake Thorn and his evil influence (in Halo) and Beth and her angel siblings must still protect Venus Cove from the Dark Forces.
When a party game – a séance – inadvertently releases Jake from the Underworld, he disguises himself and tricks Beth into taking a ride on his motorcycle. When the highway opens up and swallows them, Beth learns too late that she’s now a prisoner in hell. What happens to angels there? As her archangel brother, Gabriel, her sister Ivy, Xavier, and her best friend, Molly search for her, Beth must weigh Jake’s bargaining for her freedom: one night with him, and she will be released back to Earth. Can Jake be trusted in this wager? And is he also using Beth to engineer the fall of the archangel Gabriel? Xavier has already lost one love – when Jake tricks him into thinking that Bethany is dead, his grief and anger result in a betrayal that will leave Bethany – and readers – wondering if he is so good after all.
It will be up to Beth to use everything she’s learned about her powers as an angel – and about love – to free herself and those she loves from the clutches of Hades.
I have decided to participate in the 3…2…1… craft! hosted by Kitty Cats and Airplanes. Below is my first entry! I would love to know what you all think. These are going on sale in my Etsy store tonight for $28. I can personalize them with your choosing.
The set includes a burp cloth, a short sleeved onesie, a long sleeved onesie, and two hairbows. This set is completely customizable. You can choose color, theme, and the items that you would like to include, such as, for a boy I can include two washcloths instead of the bows or something else of your choosing. The possibilities are endless.
I also wanted to share with you all where I received the wicked fabric from.
The Intrepid Thread was gracious enough to send me the following set!
The set included:
1/4 yard each of:
Boy Main in blue
Boy Main White
Boy Squared in Blue
Boy Squared White
Girl Main in Pink
Girl Main White
Girl Squared in Pink
Girl Squared White
= 5 1/2 yds total
I was completely thrilled when I received this fabric (Alphabet Soup Boy and Girl Collection by Zoe Pearn for Riley Blake) and I wanted to get creative ASAP, but of course work got in the way and I had to put my creative mind in the back seat for awhile.
I have a friend who is due any time now and I thought what better way to use this fabric than with a gift for her little one that she plans on naming: Natalie. Thus the gift set was born using the pink fabric with flowers. I made the whole set – two onesies, burp cloth, and two hairbows with only one fat quarter, and plus I had some left over!
This fabric is genuinely beautiful and I plan to purchase more in the future. Intrepid Thread was great in answering my questions and quick in shipping the products. No doubt they are the #1 fabric seller that I know on Etsy :]
I hope you all decide to check out Intrepid Thread and if you do tell them Ashley Suzanne sent you!
Branded a traitor, betrayed by a friend, hunted by the vampire clan-Darren Shan, the Vampire's Assistant, faces certain death. Can Darren reverse the odds and outwit a Vampire Prince? Darren's initiation on Vampire Mountain draws to a stunning, bloody conclusion-but the Saga continues ...
I gasped . . . or tried to. My mouth opened, but I couldn’t draw breath. . . . His lips, pearly wet, parted and he blew into my mouth. My lungs expanded beneath his weight. When I exhaled he sucked in my breath and his weight turned from cold marble into warm living flesh.
Since accepting a teaching position at remote Fairwick College in upstate New York, Callie McFay has experienced the same disturbingly erotic dream every night: A mist enters her bedroom, then takes the shape of a virile, seductive stranger who proceeds to ravish her in the most toe-curling, wholly satisfying ways possible. Perhaps these dreams are the result of writing her bestselling book, The Sex Lives of Demon Lovers. After all, Callie’s lifelong passion is the intersection of lurid fairy tales and Gothic literature—which is why she finds herself at Fairwick’s renowned folklore department, living in a once-stately Victorian house that, at first sight, seemed to call her name.
But Callie soon realizes that her dreams are alarmingly real. She has a demon lover—an incubus—and he will seduce her, pleasure her, and eventually suck the very life from her. Then Callie makes another startling discovery: He’s not the only mythical creature in Fairwick. As the tenured witches of the college and the resident fairies in the surrounding woods prepare to cast out the incubus, Callie must accomplish something infinitely more difficult—banishing this demon lover from her heart.
As I work for a publisher, I get endless emails every single day from people claiming to be book bloggers and wanting books 'for review'. When I do go and look at their blogs, their reviews are unprofessional and almost all of their posts are IMM's where they brag about the free books they have received, and all of their followers come from ‘Follow Fridays’.
Over the last two years, my inbox has exploded. And I’m beginning to think that people are finding out how to request novels because bloggers like The Story Siren are telling them how to do it.
I feel that I need to let everyone know that review copies and followers come with HARD WORK. You should never request things unless you’ve been asked to first. Publishers will not send books to people who don’t deserve it.
So you’ve been blogging for two months and think that you should start getting ARC’s. NO YOU SHOULD NOT. PLEASE LEAVE US ALONE.
And I apologise if you see this as a personal attack. I don’t mean it to be that. It’s just frustrating to see so many people trying to gets things that they’re not prepared to work for.
Tova Gallagher isn't just your average tough as nails, intelligent Bostonian. She also just so happens to be half-demon, and halvesies have an important role to play in the supe world. Whether they choose to go with the instincts of their demon or human half is supposed to predict the outcome of the endtimes, and now Tova has a deadline to choose sides. But all of that is hard to care about when she's just met a sexy stranger on the edge of the Charles River.
Amanda was also kind enough to send me some links to the Kindle that she bought and the goodies that she got to go with it. I thought I would share these for you and help shed some light.
