$25 GIVEAWAY – Cocky Bastard by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland

$25 GIVEAWAY – Cocky Bastard by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland

Excerpt A knock at the door made me jump. With a huff, I got out of bed and stood on my tiptoes to look out the peephole. Why were those things always so high on the door anyway? I was surprised to find no one standing on the other side. Maybe I’d imagined it. Another knock. I flicked on the lights. The sound wasn’t coming from the entrance door. It was coming from an interior door I hadn’t even noticed before. Chance’s door. I unfastened the top lock and cracked it open just enough so I could see what he wanted. And there he stood. Shirtless. Wearing only dark gray boxer briefs that hugged him like a second skin. It took a minute to understand what he was doing there, even though he was holding up a toothbrush in question. “I thought we had established I wasn’t a serial killer… Read more »

$25 GIVEAWAY – Merry Mary by Ashley Farley

$25 GIVEAWAY – Merry Mary by Ashley Farley

EXCERPT Chapter One The first rays of pink sunshine ushered in another day of suffering for the people who called Monroe Park in downtown Richmond home. An early winter storm had dumped six inches of snow on the city. With no clouds to blanket in warmth, temperatures had dipped into the teens for the third night in a row. Scottie Darden parked her 4Runner alongside the dirty snowbanks on Main Street. She pulled her stocking cap down over her blonde mane and tucked her camera inside her down coat. Grabbing the two Bojangles’ bags and carton of coffee from the backseat, she trudged through the snow to a cluster of men and women huddled around a burning trash can. Eyeing the bags of food, the group of five homeless people navigated toward Scottie. She handed out sausage biscuits and paper cups of coffee. Scottie had stumbled upon the Five by… Read more »

$50 GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT – Cover Reveal Anarchy Found by JA Huss

$50 GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT – Cover Reveal Anarchy Found by JA Huss

COVER REVEAL VIDEO: This is a hand drawn cover by Ambro Jordi – watch him draw the main image in time-lapse:   “Please,” he says. The word is so soft. So filled with longing, and regret, and emotion. It reminds me of that friend of his while we were dancing. His plea makes me want to obey. Against my will, I try to convince myself. But it’s a lie. There is something here… like it’s on the tip of my tongue. Like my brain has been keeping secrets and they’re about to explode out of me. So I reach down, grab a fistful of silk tulle and I give him what he needs. Permission. His mouth is suddenly hungry and crushing. His tongue dancing inside me. One hand leaves my face and goes to his belt and I hike my skirts up even more, exposing the bare skin of my… Read more »

$500 GIVEAWAY: Eighteen (18) Based on a True Story

“You came,” he says, after a few moments of rest. His eyes open and he looks straight at me. “You came in my mouth.” I just stare back. Unable to talk. Unable to comprehend what he’s saying. “You’re a liar.” He smiles. “But I’m a good one, right?” “What?” “You believed me. And you know why you believed me, Shannon?” “That never happened?” He scoffs. “Please, how drunk would you have to be for me to suck you off and never wake you up? Do you know why you believed me?” “You’re a psycho,” I say, floored. “Because you want to believe me.” I shake my head slowly. “I don’t believe you. You’re a very good liar, Mateo. And that’s not something to be proud of.” “Right. So why are you so sure Danny Alexander is the nice one, and not me?” “Because look at you,” I scoff. “You’re such… Read more »

DEAR SANTA: Bring Me Some Promo Sign-up Form

So last year on New Adult Addiction (my personal book blog) I ran a little promo thing for authors (who are not me) called The 13 Days of Gift Card Giveaways. And I had an overwhelming response from authors wanting to be featured.

(1) It will run for all 31 days of December and each author will be featured on the blog with a Rafflecopter giveaway made by me and structured in a way that I guarantee will build your social media presence.

She’s been topping the charts all year and writes like a mad-genius! So she gave me a set of three signed min-books, some lovely swag, and a Bladon Babes T-shirt to give away tonight.
