Blogfest 2012!

BlogFest is a blog run of sorts. Participating blogs are offering a fantastic giveaway for readers to enter. Each blog will link to another, pulling readers through the fantastic party we’ll have set up for them!

Hey! Welcome to my little corner of the Blog Hop!

I’ve been wracking my brains this past week, trying to come up with a super topic for the weekend. But being neither clever nor witty, as the saying goes, I thought I’d answer THE question everyone asks me when they find out I’m a writer.

Typical conversation:

Them: So, I didn’t know you write. Got anything published?

Me: Sure. *list off books*

Them: Digital books? Like kindle stuff?

Me: Yeah.

Them: Oh. What genre?

Me: M/M Erotic Romance

Now for the BIG question! (Wait for it! They have to blink at me several times as if debating if their next question is at all rude. They take a deep breath and plunge in, rude or not. They have to know!) Why?

I tell them because it’s fun to write. Want to know the real reason? Lean close! I’ll whisper it. I don’t want everyone to know… I think gay men are hot as hell and about the most sensual creatures I’ve ever met! And where else but in fiction can I touch and pet them to my heart’s content?  *waggles eyebrows*

Okay, Prize Time! For listening to me ramble on I’m giving away a $10 ARe Books Gift Card to one of my commenters. Happy Hopping! Please leave your contact info!

Oh, and if you could follow me in some way, that would be awesome!  FB  Twitter    Goodreads Or follow this blog. I’ll be picking two winners using Good luck and thanks for playing! Don’t forget your contact info!

I heard something about a Grand Giveaway?

That’s right!  This is for anyone using the Tracking Site.  For every blog you visit and mark off, this will give you one entry into the Grand Giveaway. The winner of the Grand Giveaway will be notified via the email they used to register for the Tracking Site (see, that’s why it needs to be valid).  After BlogFest, every email in that database will be promptly deleted.  I despise spam so be assured you won’t be receiving any from me!

Please continue your hop here!
