It's my Birthday Friday, so I threw a Birthday BlogHop!

Happy Birthday to me!!! (LOL)

Yep. I'm offically *cough* 26 on April 6th. Le sigh. To my students, I am old. To everyone else, they say I'm a baby. I just say I'm me. *shrugs* Every year I usually work and spend time with the hubby. Yes, I'm boring, but what can I say. This year, my friend and fellow author Angela Stone, is coming down from Canada to visit on her way to RT, so I'm going to have a blast!!

But anyway, I'm here to share an awesome blog hop with y'all!!!! Over 60 authors and bloggers are doing giveaways on their blogs. Plus, we are giving away TWO grand prizes.

All you need to do to enter is comment with your email and sign up for my newsletter (if you're already signed up, your're already entered for that part) You can sign up HERE.


Now what are we giving away?


1) A Kindle Touch
2) A $60 Amazon or Barnes&Noble Gift Card.


PLUS I'm giving away an autographed swag pack and this necklace to a lucky commenter!!!

So please! Hop around and have fun and talk about your favorite birthdays!!!


Oh and since you're here, I thought I'd talk about my release from this week, Trinity Bound
AmazonBarnes&Noble, and ARe


Trinity Bound Blurb

Hannah Lewis, a rare earth witch, is taken from the only life she’s ever known. Held at her will by a sadistic wolf, she almost gives up hope that she’d ever see her real life again. But as her fellow captive, a werewolf named Reed, tries to calm her fears, she begins to feel a spark of something she never thought she’d feel – love. But is Reed, alone, enough to get her out of this dark basement so she can move on with her life?
Reed Jamenson, the artist of a werewolf Pack of Alpha males, knows instinctually that Hannah is his mate. Thus, despite their imprisonment, he will do all to protect her and then worry about their hearts. But is he strong enough to find a way for both of them to escape? And why does he feel as though something else is missing?
Josh Kolb, an ex-military human, stumbles upon Reed and Hannah and finds he must trust this new world of supernatural beings to survive. But that desire will lead the three to a triangle of attraction that will test the boundaries they all possess and its consequences in defeating the enemy. Can they all trust one another to save themselves and life as they know it? Even at the cost of their own hearts?

  38. One of my favorite birthdays was when I was young and my Dad picked me up from 2nd grade and took me to Fred Meyers, he let me choose the biggest bubble bath I could find to distract me and it was huge and when I got home there was a surprise party for me. Pretty special at that age.
