Stuff Your Stockings Winners!

Wow, people, this has been unreal. I'm all out of stamina. That was a lot of hopping!

First, I only thought I'd get maybe 5 entries, but I got 27. I've discovered new m/m authors during my own hop, and I've made some awesome friends ^.^ 

I wish I could give everyone a prize. In a way I can! When No Boundaries Press launches their sale site at the beginning of January, free reads will be available. My very-short story, In His Pocket, will be available for download. For those of you interested, I will post an update with a link on this once the big day arrives (plus, you'll hear me shout it across Facebook and Twitter).

By the way, No Boundaries Press is hosting a giveaway (see the top of their left column) for a chance to win 3, 6, and 12 books, winner's choice (they have all genres) - if you guys are still hungry ;)

For the Blog Hop prizes, however, I have used Random.Org to select these winners:

For a copy of Hot Hands that releases on January 8th to No Boundaries Press:

# 24 - Pati!

For a copy of A Life Without You that releases early 2012 (don't have a date yet - but the manny is going to formatting this week) to MLR Press:

# 4 - Pommawolf!!

For a $15 gift card to the No Boundaries Press store (once it opens in January):

# 11 - Anzu!!!

Congrats ^.^ I will contact the winners today and once the prizes are ready for delivery.
Finally, I want to thank everyone for their kind comments and wishes. Rain pointed out that there was no blurb for A Life Without You on my website, and she was totally right. I've fixed that and there's also a more comprehensive blurb on Hot Hands as well. 

Thanks to all those who followed.

Merry Christmas!

Only want the M/M Authors?

Stuff Your Stockings Christmas Blog Hop!

Merry Christmas, kids! I'm super excited to be writing my first blog hop post. Let it be the first of many!

Over the next three days, Dec. 16th-18th, nearly 200 authors/publishers will be giving away prizes on their blogs. To find this glory goodness, go to this link: The Blog Hop Spot. They have all the names and prizes listed. To sum up: over $450 in gift cards, 150+ ebooks, jewelry, gift baskets, Christmas ornaments, a KINDLE FIRE (don't miss that one! Blogger nr. 78), and all sorts of stuff.

But before you click the link, check out MY prizes! I'm giving away an e-copy of my upcoming release of Hot Hands, the first short story in the College Fun and Gays series. It will be released on January 8th 2012. I'm also giving an e-copy of my debut novel, A Life Without You, which will be released by MLR Press early next year. AND a $15 gift certificate from the Hot Hands publisher No Boundaries Press (their store will launch in the beginning of January). 

I know! It sucks! No one will receive my prizes before Christmas, but I promise they're worth waiting for. I'll randomly draw three winners, one for each prize.

I'm not going to make you jump through hoops to enter. Of course I would love it if you would follow my blog - but if you have little or no interest in keeping up with my future ramblings and m/m related things, then I won't ask you to follow for the mere sake of following. There's little point in that ^.^

Just leave a comment below and an online way for me to reach you if you win (email, facebook link, anything). You don't even have to check my blog again to see if you won, though I will announce the winners ;) You know, bragging rights and all.

Christmas Prizes

I'm taking part in the Stuff Your Stockings Christmas Blog Hop that takes place between 16th and 18th of December. There are just under 200 authors/publishers taking part with prizes like books, gift cards, and ornaments, jewelries, etc. We're talking over $400 in gift cards (combined) and 150+ books. How cool is that?

I'm giving away one copy of Hot Hands, one of A Life Without You, and a $15 gift card from a publisher's book shop (because buying directly from the publisher is how the authors get the most into their lint-filled pockets). I will draw three winners, each will win one of the prizes above.

I've been preparing myself for those two days by finding all the people who are offering m/m books - because that's the only thing I read these days. I figure it will give f/m readers more chance if I don't sign up for those ;) If anyone wants that list, I'll be happy to send it (just give me a few more days until all prizes are up on the official Blog Hop page.

Anyway, super fun ^.^ Super exciting!
