And the Book Giveaway Winners Are…

I’m just now recovering from my Christmas gluttony, as well as the work that’s backed up. But I wanted to post this quick announcement of who won the book giveaways this month on this blog. I emailed the winners over a week ago, when the giveaways ended. And most of them received their prizes last […]

Book Giveaway: A Box of Previously Read Books

… and one that is currently red. These are not just books I happened to have lying around. On the contrary, I picked them up while browsing the Used Book Superstore (all except for the red one), specifically because I enjoyed them. They aren’t necessarily my favorite of favorites. (For that, see the Talyn giveaway, […]

Here’s a quick-n-dirty video I made for this year’s Big Book Giveaway, showing off some books by Julie Carobini (Christian romance), Holly Lisle (fantasy romance), Jess C Scott (teen romance), and Sharon Cathcart (historical romance).

Every moment of their days controlled by the avatars of the stone Eyes–Obsidian, Emerald, Raxinan, Ruby, Windcrystal, Sapphire, Sunspar, Tigereye.

Book Giveaway: Talyn, by Holly Lisle

A conscripted warrior-mage, lover of the outlander who ended her country’s 300-year war, rescues her nation’s worst enemy from death to battle her lover and end imposed peace. Yeah… I guess that sums it up, if a book like Talyn can be summed up. But that short description really does the story no justice. The […]

Book Giveaway: EyeLeash, by Jess C Scott

“His back was amazing. You could see all these lines, sinews, muscles or whatever… I felt like licking them.” Okay. That’s still a wild quote. Jade Ashton is a sassy virgin.
