Share the Love Blog Hop

Hello, and welcome to my stop on the Share the Love Blog Hop! It’s been a crazy year and a half since I started blogging, and in that time I’ve met tons of awesome authors and bloggers, too many to count. So when I was asked to pick just 4, it was tough. But these 4 authors/bloggers have gone above and beyond for me, and I absolutely love them to death, so I’m sharing the love with this awesome group.


First up, one of my favorite authors of all, Amber Kell. Not only do I love Amber’s books, but I love the gal herself. Why? Because she’s one of the most coolest, most giving authors out there. She talks to her fans daily, and she’s always running contests, offering sneak peeks at her books, writing blog stories, etc. on her blog, so I’m always excited when I get a new post message from her.


She is also the person who inspired me to do my big birthday bash on the blog to celebrate my 21st birthday, and she even agreed to participate in my bash. In case you didn’t know, she has a big party on her blog for her birthday in November, and in 2013, she did something amazing with it. She not only had awesome authors visit and giveaways galore, she also encouraged her followers to donate to different charities instead of sending her gifts, and she offered anyone who donated a free copy of one of her books. How awesome is that? You rock Amber, and so I’m sharing the love with you.

P.S. If you want to give her books a try, you can get book 1 of her Moon Pack series, Attracting Anthony free!


Another author who I absolutely love is Lisabet Sarai. I love visiting her blog and seeing what’s up, and she knows me as my email. :)  So, somewhere along the way, we got to emailing, and next thing I knew, she had invited me to visit her blog and do a guest post! So during my birthday bash, she stopped by my blog, and she let me do my first ever guest post on her blog. She was incredibly supportive and encouraging, and it meant the world to me, especially since she has since helped give me the courage to keep writing and not give up. So from the bottom of my heart, thanks a bunch Lisabet!

P.S. If you want to try her books, you can read New Wine for free!



And now, for my fellow bloggers. One blogger who I absolutely must name is Nikki from Close Encounters of the Night Kind. Nikki friended me on Goodreads when I first got started, and invited me to her blogoversary (which is where I got the idea from). And her Wicked After Dark Blog Hop was the first hop I ever signed up for, and she got me hooked on the idea of doing blog hops. But her most recent “claim to fame and awesomeness” is when I contacted her to get advice on how to create my own blog button like hers, she not only helped me, she volunteered to do it for me! Here’s the design she came up with (isn’t it freaking awesome!!). So yeah, most awesome-est person ever. She’s answered my stupid questions when I’ve asked, and has been a huge help in growing my blogger knowledge. Nikki, if you’re reading this, hopefully I’ll see you at Coastal Magic and get to meet and finally thank you in person for all your amazingness.



And last, but certainly not least is Danielle from Romance Book Junkies. I’d checked out her blog a few times, but never really knew Danielle until I signed up for the Coastal Magic Convention and commented that I was looking for a roommate. Danielle answered, and the rest is history. I’m super excited to be getting to meet her later this week as she has been a huge help. I’ve been a nervous, panicking newbie, and she’s calmed me down, reassured me, given me some awesome advice, and has pretty much been all-around, freaking amazing. She helped take away my worries, and has given me great blogging advice as well. So Danielle, if it weren’t for you, I probably wouldn’t be able to write this right now since I’d be too busy stressing over all the last minute details and worries you took care of, and you freaking rock.



So for this hop, I’m going to give away 3 prizes. I’m offering an ebook copy of William's House by Amber Kell, an ebook copy of Chemistry by Lisabet Sarai, and a $10 Amazon GC in honor of my fellow bloggers. To enter, all you have to do is leave a comment and enter on the Rafflecopter, though if you want to spread the love and earn more entries, you can follow and visit the authors and bloggers on the Rafflecopter. Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you had a good time!

  6. Well our hose herding cats & burning soup but I figured since she is the host I would not share her, But she is one of my fav, one thing she does well is get people involved I envy her FB style, I just do not have those skills. Another Thats What I am Talking About super nice and friendly I think of her as the girl in Independence Day lets talk to the Aliens first not just kill them (while I am with Will Smith on this one), I Smell Sheep, she just seems to know whats going on first all the time, not sure how but she does. Smart Girls Love SciFi and Paranormal Romance my got to for scifi romance, has some great picks. Midnyte Reader really sweet and seems to read everything I do not so she always has another perspective.
