Win a Kindle Fire w/ the Safari Heat Blog Hop!

All the rules on how the hop will work are listed on the Safari Heat site. Follow the link below.
http://safariheatbooktoursandauthorservices.blogspot.com

The Grand Prize Is A Kindle Fire HD 7”. Second Prize Is a 100.00 Gift Card to Amazon or B&N. Plus books to go on the winner’s new Kindle.  Sorry, to be eligible to win the grand prizes you must be a resident from Canada or the United States.

Okay lets get this party started… 

I just finished Bk 3 in the Swamp Magic Series. Woo Hoo!

Here’s a quickie (though normally quickie isn’t optimal *wink*) look at the 1st two books in the series.

  BK One

Blurb:

Deep in the muggy swamps where there is but one rule, kill or be killed, a new species has emerged – born not from nature but spawned from evil.

Octavia wasn’t stupid. Those unfortunate souls who have crossed paths with her didn’t just become swamp creatures, they became the least deadly of them. She hadn’t counted on the strong spirits of those she’d cursed.

From those murky swamp depths, a hero emerged. The type from which legends are born.

Moss, whose sensual iridescent tattoos are in fact thanks to his reptilian side, still struggles to come to terms with his fate and wants nothing more than to be left alone.

Beth’s life becomes upturned when she reluctantly agrees to accompany her idiotic brother on a hunt for the Bog Man. When she becomes separated from the others she comes face to face with the legend himself . . . only no one ever mentioned how damn sexy he was.

The swamp’s dark history tests the duo on their survival skills as well as luring them deeper into the magic of the swamp.

Sensuality Level: Sensual

                                   Book Two        

Blurb:

Deep in the humid swamps, a sorcerous war rages. Demetrius, heir to the late Swamp Witch, hunts down the men his mother left bound by her dark magic.

Cursed to be a laughably undangerous swamp creature, armadillo shifter Damien stays deep in his cave. Well hidden and out of sight.

Until he met Grace.

Grace gave up on love ten years ago, when her fiancé, Henry, disappeared in the swamp. Yeah, she’d heard tales of swamp men, swamp witches, and cursed creatures, but she hadn’t truly believed in them.

Then she met Damien.

As enemies emerge and alliances tangle, one thing becomes clear: only the strongest will survive. Thrust together in the face of imminent danger, Grace and Damien become close, connecting in ways they’d never imagined, until a secret from the past threatens their fledgling bond.

As the future collides with the past, the duo fight to stay alive and to discover if true love really can strike twice.

Sensuality Level: Sensual

Now–How can you win the Fire  and other prizes?

To win prizes that need to be mailed you have to live in the US or Canada. Sorry this is because of shipping cost.

Now anyone can win ebooks. And the Kindle as long as Amazon will ship to you. So be sure and check this out first.

We will be randomly selecting blogs to giveaway prizes each day. So far we have ten to eleven prizes to giveaway each day and that list is still growing. Don’t miss out on signed book, swag, etc.

This is what is the most important if you want to win prizes. How to leave your comment and what we need to be in the comment section. Leaving multiple comments will not get you added votes but converse with the authors as much a you want. Comments are not limited.

Below is an example if what needs to be in your comment:
Name: Carey Abbott
Email: careydoucet@yahoo.com
Comment: Great Post
Twitter: Followed
FaceBook: Followed or Liked
Blog: Followed
Are you a reader or Author: Author (This is important because we are giving away book covers.)
What Country are you in: United States

You get an added vote into the grand prize drawing for each of these you do. Comment gets you one, Twitter gets you one, Facebook gets you one, and following on the blog gets you another. So for each stop you can get 4 added entries. Now you don’t have to hit all the blogs to win or do you have to do all the following, etc. to win but it gives you a better chance of winning. But you must leave an email to win or you will be excluded from all the prizes.

To review the main site and rules: http://safariheatbooktoursandauthorservices.blogspot.com/

Karama’s on a Roll & Common Sense Etiquette.

Got caught up watching Twister while chatting w/family and forgot to make the post I’d intended last night.

In case anyone hasn’t heard, Karma, well she got tired of waiting on the rusty wheels of justice.

Three Headlines-

* Rapist gets notified victim had HIV.

* Ariel Castro found dead in his cell.

* Fort Hood killer FORCIBLY shaved. (was against his Muslim beliefs.)

Can I get a hell yeah!

Moving on…

Ran into another (like a moth to a flame I went) humdinger about Goodreads and their ratings. reviewers and authors.

In this humble authors opinion without getting into the nitty-gritty of it, sure you can be snarky taking nasty to a whole new level.

Is it nice? Hell no. Will help that author? Hell no. Not in ratings and certainly not in their self conscious. Will it kill them? Will their publishers flee like hell hounds are on their heels?

I’d like to think not. Publishers have been around this block before.

But that said, there is vast difference between a snarky, snot nosed review (OMG Author is a moron. Must have been dropped on their head as a baby) and something threatening. Yesterday I saw things, that I know had many of these people been face to face, they would never have done. There were allegations peoples private (both authors and reviewers alike) personal information, such as phone numbers and home addresses had been listed online.

Even worse…their children’s school address and names.

Okay- Line crossed. Line leapt across with flames shooting out of your ass!

Let me be clear about  one thing, Don’t Fuck With the Kids or Pets. Do NOT!

You wanna call that author/review dumber than a box of rocks? Go for it. Sure it’s rude. It’s mean, but it’s legal. You as the reader have the choice to walk away and not read.

But tossing real people’s, real children’s phone numbers and addresses out there, is illegal,  reprehensible and immoral. How would you feel if shit really bad happened? I have to believe that for the most, there is good in all of us and you’d feel terrible. 

Please, please when in an online battle, step away. Have a cup of coffee. Maybe a margarita… before replying if you must reply at all.

In the grand scheme of things, think about everything around you. Yesterday I saw a post go by that caused me to stop, scroll back and read. I don’t know and have never had the privilege of working with the author whose post I caught, but essentially, she said goodbye.

She’s fighting cancer, and the cancer is winning. She wasn’t sure if she would ever be able to post again. Brings new pettiness to the big cyber world of fighting.

If that’s not a reminder that life is precious and should be embraced with happiness, I don’t know what is.

As we get further and further engaged in our new cyber worlds, lets not forget to stop and smell the very real roses of our real lives, just outside our doors.

Late Night Ramblings

So again I’m up way past my bedtime. I’m in that pre sleep zone stage.

What’s been shaking? Anyone out there awake with me?

So far this week, I’ve nearly completed the 3rd book in my Swamp Magic Series. Will still need an polishing pass before turning into my editor to see if it’s going to be wanted. *crosses fingers*

I finally made it over to My Favorite Bookstore where I dropped off a few copies of Swamp Magic (bk1) and browsed the store. Came home with a lovely book on the how the town I’m in began. It’s also filled with wonderful old black and white pictures. The whole family is enjoyed it.

Chocolate alert: M & M’s came out with Candy Corn White Chocolate M & M’s. Yes they did. Did I like? Am not sure. *gasp* I know. How damn hard is knowing whether you like something? Apparently it can be tricky.

While out and about today, I saw Halloween reminder and Halloween reminder. Now I’m all for the Holidays, including the afore mentioned, but Dayummmmmmmm. I would however appreciate seeing fall. It was hotter than Hades out there.

Caught the previews to the new series Sleepy Hollow. CAN’T WAIT!! Think I’m going to love this one.

So, if you’re following my odd rambles, whatcha been up to? 

🙂
