Seasons greetings, one and all! Wow, that was an intense period of 10 days! I hope you all enjoyed the Color of Love Blog Hop as much as I did. I was able to hit all participating blog sites, which is a first for me, so I'd say the time was adequate, yes (?)
As I mentioned in my original post, I am giving away the following:
1st Prize:$10 gift card (Amazon or PayPal)
2nd Prize: a copy of my debut novel, MOST ELIGIBLE BACHELOR
Although it was a November read, we decided to go with a Christmas novella - cos let's face it, November is a busy month so a short read was in order. Secondly, December is an even busier month and so we thought we should get a short story in case any of you are moved to add this to your December reads. Our book of choice was The Gift: A Christmas Miracle by Joanne Clancy
It's here! The Color of Love Blog Hop 2015. Every year, we celebrate interracial and multicultural romance. This hop is being organised by my friends Kiru Taye, Nana Prah and me.
December is a busy time all round so we thought we'd extend the time for our hop so you can get to each participating blog while attending to all the holiday stuff on your plates! So from 27 November - 6 December, 2015 (10 Days!), you get to juggle your life with your love of romance in color and earn the chance to win some wonderful books and our grand prizes!
Last month, we did something a little different. We held a small event on Facebook where we asked authors to post their books covers and blurbs, based on which we would select one to read for September. We were pretty unanimous with the selection - meaning of the several we all selected, this book was picked by all three of us!
Hi peeps! Yea, I know that's a little old-fashioned but hey, it is appropriate (I think). So for September, we selected a paranormal (we seem to be lingering in paranormal lately). It's probably because we're all relatively new readers of paranormal romance, so we're kind of fascinated with some of the characters, plots and the lingo - things that are apparently quite standard in the genre.
It's my birthday month and I thought I should celebrate, so
when my friends Mona Karel and Jami Gray asked if I'd like to join
the Labors of Love Blog Hop, I said YEA! As always, celebration author
style means you get the gifts. From today 4th - 6th
September we're giving away awesome prizes.
Hello again, World! It's P, C & B review time :-). We bring you three impressions of the same book - good way to help you decide if you want to read the book (end of commercial). Okay, so we stayed in the paranormal genre with a witches/ghosts: Tangled Souls by Jana Oliver. As always, when you're done reading my review, please head over to reviews of the same book by Nana Prah and Cathrine Constantine.
I was going to start the post with 'It that time of the month again!' and then I figured that was probably not the best intro ;-) ...
July rolled around very quickly, too quickly if you ask me. If it sounds like I'm complaining, rest assured I'm not. It just means I have to start planning my first ever 1 year-old birthday party for my dear daughter!
and... It's time for another Prah, Baryeh & Constantine review (applause).
So I made a silent resolution to read a lot more books than I did last year, and I thought it would be a great idea to do monthly reviews. I've set up a "2015 Reading Challenge" on Goodreads modest goal of one and a half books a month. For now, I'm a guest reviewer on the Prah and Constatine Review team and I'm very pleased to post my first Prah and Constantine [and Baryeh:-))] review.
We're sharing the love this week and surprise bombing bloggers and authors we adore! Hop by all of the blogs for chances to win great prizes at each stop and find out which authors and bloggers we think are so darn special!
So here goes:
(Tell us a sentence or two about the blogs or authors you're featuring and why you love them. Please limit it to 1-10 blogs/authors)
Olivia Gates: If you love medical romance or Sheikhs and you've never read Olivia Gates, then you're missing out! Her stories are an absolute delight to read. Awesome plots and writing, passionate sex scenes, heroes and heroines who have a lot more to lose than their hearts.
Loreth Anne White: Do you love high stakes romantic suspense? Then you definitely want to check out Loreth's books. I absolutely love that she explores various settings - in particular Africa. And she has a couple of Sheik stories too :-)
Kiru Taye: This is the first author I've seen write historic romance in an African setting. Let me tell you, I was blown away by Kiru's Men of Valor series, her writing debut. Since then she's only got better. Her stories are delightful. Kiru is exploring more erotic sex scenes, which might make you blush
Nana Prah: I still believe in sweet romance and that's what Nana Prah does. Though relatively new on the scene, Nana Prah has shown she's versatile. Her first novel was a medical romance set in my own backyard, Ghana and her latest release is a romance that takes place in a medium security prison! (yea, I thought that would get your attention) ;-)
Nana Malone: Now here's someone who's stories are fun to read. I enjoy Nana Malone's writing and particularly her characters. They often have fun personalities that makes them a delight to read.
I really could go on and on, but I have to stop here so y'all can hit the 78 other sites taking part in the hop! (yes, I said 78 *other*)
