Friday Hops

It's that time again:  time to hop!  First up is the 18 & Over Book Blogger Tag Along hosted by Bitten by Paranormal Romance  It's 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:  Do you have a favorite hero so far this year?  If so, who?

God, I hope this doesn't sound self-serving, but since I've been so involved with writing, my favorite hero is my hero from my first book, Stolen Destiny, Varek.  He's a big, strong Alpha male, tall, dark , and handsome, and he was so delicious to write.  I am, however, reading Marie Treanor's Blood Sin and I can say after my guy, Saloman is just perfect.  Love how smooth he is, even when he's about to end it for someone.  She writes such a wonderful character in him, although I think some may disagree about his status as a hero. 

And next up is Elizabeth Sharp's Follow Friday for Writers.  Thanks Elizabeth!  This one's for anyone who writes, including anyone who writes a blog.  This week's question:  How did you come up with your blog's name?

I feel sort of lame with this answer, but it's my pen name and a very brief explanation of what I do here:  I discuss my writing.  I wish I had something more exciting to say, but sometimes it's just the facts, ma'am.

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!

You should love your hero! I thinks it awesome that you have one that you call your own. My fave at the moment is Ryker from Sable Grace's Ascension.

Gabrielle said...

Thanks guys! I was worried when I wrote Varek was my favorite hero. And it is pretty awesome that I have one I can call my own. Thanks for reminding me of that!

I'll be heading over to your places in the am since the sandman is about to take over tonight.

Nothing wrong with loving your own hero . . . anything less, and I might be worried about the read. :)

Nadja Notariani said...

Well, I have to say that Saloman is one of my all-time favorite heroes! Spot on when you say he is smooth.......
As for your first book, I have to go with Amon....the bad know I have a thing for him. Delicious! ~Nadja

Laurie (BittenbyParanormalRomance) said...

I don't blame you I think I would too.

Have a good weekend!

Victoria said...

Hello and Happy Friday! I love your pen name, your blog, and your website. Thank you for sharing.

Julee J. Adams said...

I'm glad you said that, because I have a favorite hero I've been writing too--his name is William D'Arcion. He's alpha, but also a good soldier. I based him on my brother who graduated from The Naval Academy and was killed back in 1969. If I have to pick already published characters, I'd say, any of Jo Beverley or Julia Quinn's heroes.
Nice to meet you, see you next week and stop by to visit:

Varek does sound hot :) I just read your excerpt, looking forward to reading it, bring on June.

Redd said...

I think it is *totally* awesome that Varek is your fave. :) As it should be considering he's yours. =) Makes me look forward to your book coming out.

I'll take a peeksee at Blood Sin because of your recommendation of Saloman. ;)

Thanks for hopping by the Wyld Hollow! Have a wonderful evening!
