Valentine's Blog Hop!

Image
It's that time again when I feel like throwing out some books to willing readers. I'm single this year for the first time since I was sixteen, but I'm happy nonetheless. Where will I be on Sunday February 14th? Curled up in my La-Z-Boy with Valentine's stories ^.^ We don't really celebrate this day over here anyway.

I didn't write any Valentine's stories this year, but since all my stories are about love I'd like to give away what I have. These are all e-books and there will be three winners - one book for each.

- Hot Hands: A story about a college boy who's been a victim of sail-by goosing.
- A Grade-A-Sex Deal: A story about a teacher who has a grade-A-sex deal with his student. (Will be published in February)
- A Life Without You: A story about a college boy who's in love with his roommate.

Just like last time I won't make you jump through hoops to enter the giveaway. All you need to do is leave a comment below and a way for me to contact you. I'll announce the winner early on the 15th and send him/her an email. I'm inviting you to click the follow button to the right, but it's not mandatory. There's really no point if you're not an m/m reader and/or have no interest in keeping up with my writing. I'm also leaving a link to my author page on facebook - again, optional. No extra entries or anything like that ^.^

Take a look at all the other people taking part in this. We're talking 263 people of all genres. Only want the m/m ones? There are 33! Have a look at the list I made ^.^

Want a cute little free read? In His Pocket is available for download at NBP's website (just click continue until you get it - ignore the warnings/errors).

I'd like to take this opportunity to promote the m/m-only blog hop that'll take place on May 17th. That's the date for the International Day Against Homophobia. We already have 120 m/m authors, publishers, and reviewers signed up and if you'd like to take part go and have a look at the Hop Against Homophobia blog :) If you're a reader you're free to have a look as well - we look forward to seeing you there on May 17th ^.^

Have a lovely Valentine!

Erica :)

    1. Well, reading is the second best thing to cuddling up to someone, in my opinion. Though I do have my kids to cuddle, so that counts for something. Hope you have a great day ^.^

  23. Hi Erica: I love to read all kinds of romance. Even men deserve to have their stories told. Who says that men can't be passionate about another man are people who have their head in the sand. Thank you for being a part of this hop.

    Happy Valentine's Day,
