Cocked and Loaded G!veaway H0p



Welcome to the Cocked and Loaded Giveaway Hop! Hosted by Ronda over at Queentutt's World of Escapism and Nikki at Close Encounters of the Night Kind, this giveaway hop is to celebrate Independence Day here in the US. With dozens of blog and author sponsors, this hop is BIG! The grand prizes are two Kindle Fires loaded with some of the sponsoring authors books!  I told you it was big.


I love the 4th of July because my birthday is on July 7.  I also shared a birthday with my father (born on his 32nd birthday), so the holiday was always a big deal at our house. We'd celebrate for days with cookouts, cake, fireworks, and swimming for hours on end. I found this picture of a vampire birthday cake and loved it! How cool are the teeth? It's perfect for a paranormal romance author. :)

To celebrate the giveaway hop, I'm giving away what Americans love (sometimes more than anything else):  money and swag. One winner will get a $20 Amazon gift card and a set of Sons of Navarus swag from the first three books in the series:  Blood Avenged, Blood Betrayed, and Blood Spirit.  There will be bookmarks, cover flats, and other goodies thrown in too!

So how do you get your hands on this?  First, leave a comment below with your email address.  The giveaway is international, so an email gets you entered. Then do as many extra entries in the Rafflecopter thing as you'd like to increase your chances. The more you do, the better your chance if winning.  And if you like the Sons of Navarus FB page, you'll be able to take advantage of the giveaways I do there, in addition to finding out all the up-to-date news about the series and those delicious vampire Sons!

Good luck, and be sure to visit all the other blogs participating for other great giveaways!

Happy 4th and Happy early birthday! That must have been really special, sharing a birthday with your dad. On my dad's side of the family, there are a bunch of people whose ages all line up so they turn a certain decade old at the same time. For example, in 2013, my husband will turn 30, my mom 50, my cousin 30, another cousin 20, one of my dad's cousins 60, and so on. So every 10 years we have a decade birthday party in the summer to celebrate all these birthdays with the big extended family! Next year will be the first time my husband is included!
