Invitation to a Party! #giveaway

Grab your polka-dot party hat because you're invited to celebrate some summer book birthdays with me and a few thousand friends! Plus I'm giving out presents!!

Tyrean Martinson released a wonderful collection of summer devotionals to take on the road.

SUMMER VACATION DEVOTIONS
by Tyrean Martinson

Fifteen devotions for families having fun on summer vacation. Included topics are: packing, driving, car games, maps, rest stops, sand, water, buckets of treasure, sunscreen, sunglasses, tent camping, campfires, flashlight tag, s'mores, and the summer night sky. Scriptures, devotional reflections, and prayers intertwine with these fun topics for sweet devotional time.

Taste the sweetness of God's Word that's even sweeter than s'mores cooked over a campfire.

Buy here: Amazon

NOTE! Tyrean is donating all of her earnings from each sale to Peace Rehabilitation Center in Nepal.

My words on Tyrean:
Tyrean Martinson is a caring, adventurous person. She gives it her all and enjoys life to the fullest. Her writing reflects her love for God and how we can overcome anything with His help. I'm glad to know her.

MASKED KISS
By Christine Rains
Publisher: Ellora's Cave
Genre: Modern erotic romance

Video game geek Josh Hanson never gets noticed by women until a gorgeous booth babe drags him into a dark room for a quickie.

She doesn't give him her name, and her face is covered by a silver mask. Josh is determined to find the dark-haired beauty again, but communication isn't easy in a huge hall filled with nerds. When they end up playing in a tournament later, the games extend into her hotel room. Josh wants more than just a con fling, but she's not easy to catch. Can he figure out how to beat her games and become her champion?

My words on Christine.
Christine Rains is a fabulous writer, regular blogger, and wonderful friend. She has a little geeky family and they are proud of it. And her blue-glasses wearing son is adorable! I love reading her stuff, especially the paranormal romance which she is a pro at.

Only a week ago, TB Markinson released her romantic comedy novel! What a cover!

THE MIRACLE GIRL
by TB Markinson

Newspaper publisher and world traveler JJ Cavendish continually feels pressured to live up to her Miracle Girl nickname. Not many people know she’s living a carefully crafted lie. She may not hide ties to the LGBT community, but she does hide past struggles with addiction.

When the Colorado native is handpicked to take the helm at a dying Denver newspaper, she ends up reconnecting with her long lost love in this contemporary lesbian romance. Only there’s a catch. If JJ fires the most belligerent editor at the paper, she risks losing the love of her life.

Mid-afternoon office romps abound, while also focusing on what it takes for a newspaper to remain relevant in this age of social media.

Must JJ lose everything in order to gain a life more fully her own?

Buy it here:

From this:                                                                                        To this!

Congrats on the new cover, and to all the other authors. So much great stuff going on. And yes, I'd love a copy with the original cover, so count me in.

Congrats on the new cover! Turning the book into a screenplay sounds like fun! I'd love to do that someday, but I should probably finish writing the book first...

Tara,
There's so much awesome to celebrate here. So glad to see all this coming out and like you it's amazing to realize it's been 2 years since POP TRAVEL came out into the world.

And you're turning it into a screenplay??
Woot!
Crossing fingers, sending prayers, and I'll see about gathering some four leaf clovers :-)

cleemckenzie said...

Wow! Now you're turning screenwriter, too? Very impressed here. I'll post some Tweets for you today.

Congratulations to you Tyrean, Christine, and TB. Wonderful writers and great bloggers with awesome talent.

Good luck with your screenplay, they are so much fun to write! Is there a bite from television or a movie deal? Keeping my fingers crossed!

Rena said...

Wow those books are gorgeous (I don't know why I love masks on covers, but it makes me think of the Count of Monte Cristo)

TBM said...

So excited about your new cover and happy birthday Pop Travel!

Screenwriting?! How cool. And I hear it's wonderful training for writing.

Thanks so much for the shout-out and kind words.
