New Year’s Resolution Blog Hop #Giveaway @RoanePublishing


Welcome to the blog. I know I haven’t been as present here as I should be, but I am hoping to make it up to you all by offering a little giveaway action. So, to that end, I have entered a Blog Hop being hosted by my publisher, Roane Publishing.

It’s a great way to meet some new authors, learn about some new stories, and hopefully nab yourself a few freebies.

For my part in the Hop, I am giving away two prizes.

The first prize — a $10 Roane Publishing Gift Certificate is open to anyone who signs up for my monthly newsletter. You can find the signup form here: (OPEN INTERNATIONALLY). I will randomly select one new subscriber at the end of the Hop for this prize.

The second prize — a signed print copy of Call of the Sea to one lucky commentor. (US ONLY)

So what do I want you to say in your comment to be qualified?

Simple — Just leave a comment below telling me what your goal is for 2016. That’s it. Oh, and please leave your email address, so I can reach you should you be selected as my winner.

Giveaways are open until the end of the HOP. Winners will be selected on Jan 9th and posted here on the blog once selected.

As I mentioned, there are a bunch of other sites and authors participating in the HOP, and each one has a giveaway of their own, so please stop by and visit with the others as well.

You can reach the list of participants by clicking the image at the top of the post, or my selecting the link below.

Lazy Days of Summer Giveaway Hop #CalloftheSea #PNR #giveaway

Welcome to my stop on the Lazy Days of Summer Giveaway Hop. As a HUGE fan of summer, I have been really looking forward to this hop and the chance to check out some of the fabulous reads available for beach reading this year.

For my part of the Hop giveaways, I will be offering an eBook copy (pdf, mobi or epub) of my debut novel, Call of the Sea, as well as an autographed bookmark.

Wondering what it’s all about? You can learn more about the novel and read some reviews on Goodreads, or just scroll down a bit and read the info from the back of the book.

Back of the Book:  Elysandra Winters has always yearned for a life of adventure on the rolling seas and is willing to do whatever it takes to fulfill her dream. When her Privateer father continually refuses to allow his only daughter to sail, Ellie defies him, disguises herself as a boy, and goes in search of a captain who will give her a chance to prove her worth.

Thanks to the cursed selkie blood coursing through his veins, Daniel O’Rourke needs the sea to survive. After giving up on his humanity and spending three years in seal form, he decides to give his human side another chance. Daniel goes in search of a job and a sense of normalcy, earning himself a position aboard Captain Winter’s ship, The Siren’s Call. However, his new captain’s first assignment has nothing at all to do with sailing, and everything to do with his headstrong young daughter.

Years later, when the leader of a band of bloodthirsty pirates murders Captain Winters, Daniel and Elysandra’s lives come crashing back together with the force of a hurricane. Both experts in deception, they must find a way to trust each other in order to quell the raging storm between them or have any hope of hunting down the captain’s killer.

All you need to do to Enter to Win is to follow this blog (if you don’t already). Yup, that’s it. No rafflecopter widgets and hoops to jump through. Just follow and you’re entered in the giveaway.

 Simple, right?That’s not to say that comments aren’t welcome, they certainly are welcomed and encouraged.

Well, then what are you waiting for? Get on it, people!

In all seriousness, I want to take a moment to thank I am a Reader not a Writer and Colorimetry for co-sponsoring this blog hop. Please click on this LINK or on the banner at the top of this post and visit with the other participating blogs in the hop.

Thanks again and Happy Reading!
