Tagging and Following Along

Hi everyone!  Another chance to hop around to see old friends and new. If you're a new follower, please leave a comment so I can hop by your place. And old followers, I always love to hear from you.  Have a wonderful weekend!

The 18 & Over Tag Along, hosted by Bitten by Paranormal Romance is a great chance for those of us who read adult books to find others like them.  Thanks to Laurie for hosting this! If you haven't joined in yet, stop over there and add your name!

This week's question:  Where is your favorite place to read?
I always read in my bedroom, sitting cross legged on my bed.  It's also my favorite place and way to write.

Next is the Writer's Follow Friday Blog Hop hosted by Elizabeth Sharp over at Sharp Words. Thanks Elizabeth for this great idea!  This one's for anyone who writes, including anyone who writes a blog.  This week's question:  Where do you like to write? 

I had no idea that this question would be posed since I mentioned it above, but I write in my bedroom, sitting on my bed, legs crossed.  My cats are usually sitting on the bed near me, often trying to get my attention away from what I want to do and onto them, as cats are wont to do.  I always have music playing in the background, and no matter if it's day or night, I have as many lights on as possible.

How do you join in the fun? So glad you asked. It’s really quite simple.

The rules
1)      1`. Follow this blog.
2)      2.  Follow Elizabeth Sharp, the originator of this hop
3)      3.  Follow the featured author of the week.
4)      4.  Go to Sharp words and copy the image code found there and paste it in your blog. Add your name to the link at the bottom of the post while you are there.
5)      5.  Copy and paste the rules in your blog, as well as this week’s question.
6)      6.  Answer the question
7)      7.  Follow, follow, follow. This is about networking, people, making connections with people in your community. So talk to us. We don't bite!
8)      8.  If someone stops by, says hi and follows you, the polite thing to do is follow back.
9)      9.  Comment here and introduce yourself and you just might find a new follower or two.

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View. Thanks to her for hosting this one! This week's question is:
What book do you really not want to admit to loving?

I don't think I have a book I hate to admit to.  I read mostly adult romance and erotica, along with some really boring history books and an occasional cookbook, but I freely admit to all of them.  Now do I show others the covers of many of my romance and erotica books?  Well, now that's a different story. ;)

And then there's Shah Wharton's Weekend Creation Blog Hop over at WordsinSync.  Shah's a great person who champions all sorts of creativity. Please stop by her place, join in if you're a creative type of any kind, and hop around to all the wonderful people!

Hello my lovely :) How wonderful for you to stop by.

Oh, which book did I not love, I would have to say Shiver and Fallen. I'm not sure how those too books had so many good reviews but I'm ok with being odd.

Happy Friday and have a good weekend!

I simply can't read in bed. Sitting or laying down. Sitting is too uncomfortable and laying down makes me want to close my eyes. Now a chaise lounge would be different. I would love one of those!

Happy Friday!

It's great to "meet" you, Gabrielle! I am a new follower and will definitely be back when I have more time to check out some of your old content. But right now I am out the door to meet with my critique partners! If you find a minute, I hope you will stop by and visit my site. Have a wonderful Friday!

Belinda said...

I'm doing the Follow Friday HOP and Writer's HOP so come by and visit - Writings Of A Dreamer and over at The Bookish Snob

Enjoy your weekend!

Just read your WIP. Are they historical in nature, or do you combine time frames with a little paranormal twist? You also said you have a book coming out in June, what's that one about?


Gabrielle said...

Hi E,

I can't say that history is ever far away from my writing since my degree is in history and I teach it every day. But the powers that be force me to say my Destined Ones series is paranormal because of the people I write about--Aeveren.

My book Stolen Destiny is the one coming out in June.

I've seen some surprising answers but I think my response to this week's Follow Friday question will shock most.

I have to say that I loved the Harry Potter series but have a really hard time admitting it. It's teenage stuff. Perfect for the YA audience, sure.

But a grown man who just last week blogged about wishing he could step inside the Rogue Warrior book series with Navy SEALs shooting, looting, drinking and wenching has got a real hard time admitting to loving teenie-bopper Harry Potter.

I go into much more detail on my blog and welcome all comments -

All I ask is that everyone try and keep their comments civil. It's cool to disagree but flame wars are NOT cool.

Thank God it's Follow Friday!
