This year, my theme for the challenge is Strange Feelings: weird and possibly made up words to describe feelings we all have. I'll let you guess if the word is real or not.
––the relaxed, calm feeling you have when you’re inside and it’s storming outside
Today I'm participating in the launch of a new service started by two writing friends, Marie Landry and Jessica Tate. Both are passionate about writing, and I've worked with before.
Happy St. Patrick's Day! And what better way to celebrate when you can't drink alcohol like me than with some awesome paranormal romance and urban fantasy books? These stories are on sale for a limited time, but if you have Kindle Unlimited (KU), you can read them any time for free! KU is as good as finding a pot of books at the end of the rainbow. (Can you spot mine? Yup, Mike is in there.)
When Chys posted on her blog wanting questions to answer for her upcoming release, I had one I knew I needed to ask: Since your characters are always getting caught up in hurricanes and tsunamis, and I live in the frozen tundra, how do you think they would fare in a blizzard?
Let's see how Chrys answered. >8D
The other Thursday at Story Dam chat, the idea of doing another book promo event like Trick-or-Treat Reads around Christmas time since people get gift cards as presents. In the end, we decided on a New Years Day event called New Year, New Reads. Since I’ve done three promo events like this, I figured I’d jump on the helm and get this thing rolling.
Ready for another great book in my spectacular Give in to Reading Giveaway? (Yes, I am coming up with different ways to make this sound awesome. You wouldn't pass up something spectacular, would you? =D)

Writers spend hours seated in front of a computer, staring at the screen. We make up characters and move them through situations, putting as much detail into them as we can. Often we draw on our own life experiences when we’re creating characters and situations, even if we have to go all the way back to childhood.
For young writers just starting out, there’s no substitute for life experience. As they choose their jobs, here are a few occupations that can be more beneficial than others for later books.
If you've read the second book in Path of Angels, you'll get the blog title. If you haven't, sad face! Kidding. What it is, is Zephyr calls Zade and his brother bird boys.
Don't be hushed about today's exciting Give into Reading Giveaway! Go on, shout about it. Or, ya know, just enter the giveaway and eat a cupcake.
The winner of Hunger by Jackie Morse Kessler is...
