Whats Happening Lately

Well this morning I finally got around to signing up for Runforyourlives.com 5k zombie obsticle course. I knew what the premise was all about but then (after I signed up) I started looking at some of the images online and this is what popped up...

WHAT WAS I THINKING? I just have to face the fact that I'm probably going to be infected by the end of it.

I'm currently having a GIVEAWAY!

Over the weekend I received an email from the lovely Author, Emily Casey, asking me if I’d like to read and review her novella Cinderella and Zombies. She also approved this GIVEAWAY. How cool of her.
To enter, please go here and signup to participate!

Back in April, Jackie @ Bouquet of Books and I first posted about the
First Fight/First Kiss Blogfest 
Why is it perfect?
While Jackie adores the kissing and hand holding scenes, I’m the “give me fat lips and magical dueling any day of the week” type girl, the bloodier the better. Though Jackie also likes fight scenes; I HATE to write love scenes. I find it difficult to get in touch with my soft side. This blogfest forces many of us to work on other scenes that we may not like and make them shine.
Also what happens after a good argument? - Making up!

Share your 1st FIGHT and 1st KISS scenes in your MS’s or WIP’s. Crack open your current project or dive back into an old one. We want to feel what your characters feel. From the sting of their first fist-to-the-face to the tingling taste of their first kiss.

If you’re not a writer, please share with us your real life firsts. We want to read and experience them all!
The First Fight/First Kiss blogfest will go as such: 
  • Post 1 will be on Tuesday, June 12 - Share with us your 1st FIGHT scene on your blog. It can be physical or verbal, fists or magic. Whichever you want to share.
  • Post 2 will be on Thursday, June 14 - Share with us your 1st KISS scene on your blog. It can be a peck on the cheek or a full fledge kissing session. Whatever you would like to tell us.
Details for the First Fight/First Kiss blogfest:
  • Sign up using the linky thingie below.
  • Display the gorgeous First Fight/First Kiss Blogfest button on your blog. Go grab our button on the left sidebar.
  • Post your 1st fight entry on June 12, 2012.
  • Post your 1st kiss entry on June 14, 2012.
  • Hop around to the other blogs and comment on their wonderful 1st fight and 1st kiss scenes.
Prizes? Absolutely! Jackie and I will each pick our favorite scene from each day. That’s 4 prizes total, folks. What are the fabulous gifts for the winners? $10 email-giftcards to Amazon or Barnes & Noble so you can choose that book you’ve been wanting or download it to your Kindle or Nook.

Lastly. I wanted to say THANK YOU to all of the people out there that posted on my First Loves blog yesterday. I did visit everyones pages. If you do not a have a comment from me, this means you didn't have your post up yet. If I missed you please let me know, if not, I will make the rounds again.

Thanks again to Alex for hosting such a fun hop/fest! I followed and gained some new followers!
