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.

Welcome to the second book giveaway of my Give in to Reading Giveaway Extravaganza! (Does this fall under the definition of extravaganza? I don't know, but it makes it sound exciting.)
Back in March, I was on a mission to declutter and reduce my possessions, and I ended up with a pile of awesome books that I think more people need to read. I considered doing a giant giveaway and annoying the post office workers, but lately, I've been scolding myself for not being more giving consistently. I decided I'd do a giveaway for each book and spread it out over time.

I’d like to thank Patricia Lynne for offering me some time on her blog today.
In order to get everyone in the mood for the holidays (my novella is Christmas-themed so this only makes sense) I’d like to tell you a story from my childhood involving candy canes.
