A to Z Challenge–Letter H

9 Apr

Last week I was fortunate to start the A to Z Challenge on Rosie Amber’s blog where my novel A World Apart was making headlines for the letter A. Thank you Rosie for the incredible effort to organize this event, the love and support you show all of us, and thank you to everyone leaving comments and showing interest in my novel.

Today I’m back again with yet another novel of mine covering the letter H in the challenge. Hidden Heart is my debut novel I published 3 years ago, a multicultural romance set in Romania and Italy, modern day. With stellar reviews, 100+ ratings and almost 1,000 readers adding it to their to-read-shelves on Goodreads I couldn’t be happier with the way people around the world received it.

HH for web

One of the latest reviewers calls Hidden Heart, “Drama galore, a hero to die for, a heroine with brains, that’s my kind of book. Hidden Heart delivers that and more.”

Please hop over at Rosie’s blog to see what else she has in store. Along with Rosie there are 2,000 bloggers from around the world featuring throughout the month of April authors from all kind of genres and what books you can read next. Don’t miss out on this opportunity.

Happy reading!

Signed Book Giveaway Hop

Signed Book Giveaway Hop
April 16th to 22nd
Featuring Books Signed by the Author
As technology and humans evolve we authors have now a neat way of signing even electronic copies of books. Using Autograph.com any book can be signed with a push of a button then delivered to any electronic shelf (see mine on the right column, near the end of the page).
But I’m still a sucker for paperbacks. The smell of ink, the paper’s thickness between my fingers, the sound of another file being turned… that’s all part of the reading pleasure. With that in mind my prizes for today’s giveaway hop are simple: 3 winners US ONLY, each receiving a signed copy of my novels:
test cover1
AWA-FINAL Barnes
iliascolor1
Interested? I hope you are. And if you are all you have to do is fill out the form below and leave your answer to the following question: Do you have a signed item (be it a book, a DVD, a painting, a baseball, etc) by a famous person, what that item is and from whom? I have a signed poster by astronaut John Grunsfeld and one by fellow Arizonan and romance author Erin Quinn.
Good luck everyone!

Thankful For Books Giveaway Hop

7 Nov

What nourishes your soul or imagination? What makes you dream? For me books, movies and music are constant companions. The sun shining in a child’s eyes, the breeze rustling through leaves and the water cascading over rocks. It’s the love I offer and the love I receive.

And for all of that and more I’m grateful. And since today we celebrate books with the Thankful For Books Giveaway Hop organized by Kathy @ I’m A Reader Not A Writer, helped by Tristi @ Tristi Pinkston I decided what better way to show my appreciation than to give my own books some TLC.

On 11/14 I will announce three winners  (US ONLY) as following:

Two bookmarks and one autographed paperback of my debut novel Hidden Heart (click on the cover for blurb and Goodreads rating)

Two bookmarks and one autographed paperback of A World Apart (click on the cover for blurb and Goodreads rating)

 

The short story I Was Here—Before You Came, part of the summer anthology It’s A Love Thing will be gifted as an e-copy. (click on the cover for blurb and Goodreads rating)

Enter the form below for your chance to win. No liking, befriending or following necessary. Just your love for books is enough <3

THANK YOU ALL FOR STOPPING BY!

Christmas in July Giveaway Hop

9 Jul

Merry Christmas everyone! Yeah, I know it’s only July, but I can start practicing now, right? I mean with so many presents to buy, christmas cards to send and visits to make I thought I’d begin practicing right here and now by giving out a … present. 
As you know Claire @ Claire Reads helped by Tess @ My Pathway to Books organized this year’s Christmas In July Giveaway Hop. This hop runs between July 9th and July 16th with the winner announcement on July 17th.

Now, I’m suppose NOT to tell what’s the giveaway for my site, but I’m a terrible secret keeper. So I left a hint. Somewhere on one of my pages (I have 5 of them: HOME, HIDDEN HEART, A WORLD APART, I WAS HERE–BEFORE YOU CAME and ABOUT) there’s a box wrapped nicely in gift paper. This box will go to one winner. It contains… well, I can’t tell what it contains, because the most important rule of this hop is not to tell what’s in it.

For your chance to win the present all you have to do is FOLLOW THIS BLOG BY EMAIL by clicking on the button to the right called “Sign me up!” (between BLOG STATS and TWITTER UPDATES) and leave your answer to the question: WHAT’S THE RIBBON’S COLOR TYING THE GIFT BOX?

Merry Christmas everyone!
