Just a quick detour from our regularly scheduled programming.
I'd totally forgotten that my Midnight Seductions group is having it's FIVE YEAR BIRTHDAY PARTY this weekend, and we're celebrating with a Blog Hop.
So, we'll push back the Caption Contest for another week. That will give everyone a bit more time to enter. For anyone interested in playing, go HERE for the rules and the beginning of the contest. Or see the last installment of photos to caption, HERE.
But today, in honor of our five year celebration, I have a blog about birthdays. We all have them, so what exactly makes a birthday a day to remember?
According to Websters Dictionary, it means... a: the day of a person's birth, b : a day of origin, c : an anniversary of a birth. But personally, I like Sammy Hagar's meaning best.
Every year on your birthday, you get a chance to start new.
I love that. The idea of getting a fresh new start each and every year of your life. To take what you've learned the year before and make it a starting point from that moment on. To build on the ups and downs...the rights and wrongs and look toward the future.
At Midnight Seductions, we've come a long way in five years and I've enjoyed every minute of it. We've built on what we've done and what we've learned together, and we've all benefited from each other's mistakes and triumphs. I've not been as active this last year since I'm overseas, but the friends and professional relationships I've made will last a lifetime.
One of the best things about birthdays is getting presents, but the Midnight Seduction's Authors aren't the ones getting the gifts...we're going to give them. On the Blog Hop, for all our fans, we're giving away the chance for a fantastic prize.
A KINDLE FIRE!!!!!!
How awesome is that?
And it's easy for all of you to win this wonderful new ebook reader. To find out how to enter, go to the Midnight Seductions Blog. There you'll get all the deets, as well as find the other authors for the blog hop.
Some of the authors also have individual contests as well, and you enter them to be a part of the main contest. How do you enter my individual contest? Easy Peasy. Only two things to do.
1. Leave a comment below with your favorite birthday memory. That's the EASY part.
2. Now the PEASY. :-) Join my Chat group. (The link is below) Send an email to the group introducing yourself.
That's it. Do the above and you'll be entered! For my individual contest, I'll pick a winner early next week and announce it on my upcoming Thursday blog. And the prize for it? Your choice of my latest release, Luck Be A Lady or my upcoming Christmas release, Frosty...The Real Man. (If you have-or have pre-ordered one of the books already, send me the receipt and we'll find another of my books you don't have.)
So take the time and get to know a few new authors.
Different genres, heat levels and styles, but sure to please. And you might be the one who takes home the Grand Prize of a KINDLE FIRE.
And that will be a BIG Happy Birthday to YOU!!!!
Good Luck and I look forward to hearing all your great birthday memories!!!!
Hugs to all,
