Rediscovering the Joy of Writing and Two New Reader Giveaways


Today I’m a guest over at On Top Down Under Book Reviews, helping them celebrate their blog’s 4th anniversary. I’m sharing more about my experience writing The Haven #2 and also offering up a giveaway. Check out the post at this link: Creativity, Disappointment, and Rediscovering the Joy of Writing. Be sure to comment there to enter the giveaway before October 18th.

Here’s a full list of their other anniversary events and giveaways.


This week I’m also taking part in the massive Halloween Giveaway hosted by Diverse Reader. There are more than 40 prizes up for grabs and some fun posts by an amazing list of authors who are answering questions such as:

What’s your favorite thing about Halloween?
Tell us the best costume you ever wore for Halloween?
What’s your best Halloween memory?

What’s your favorite Halloween or scary story and why?

Stop by and check out all the fun, and be sure to enter the giveaway. The authors’ posts are divided into two sections: Part one & Part two (check out mine in part two).

The contest ends on October 20th.

Good luck!

Announcing New Reader Appreciation Day with Giveaway

Fellow author SJ Frost and I are thrilled to announce the all new M/M Reader Appreciation Day at The Sweet Spot. This is one day every month for authors of m/m romances to say thanks to all the readers out there who support our writing efforts.

Readers, every month stop by the Yahoo Group to chat with authors and enter for a chance to win free books and other prizes from a variety of m/m authors.

The first Reader Appreciation Day will be held on Saturday, April 7. On that day, we’ll post a list of all prizes available. Just respond to the giveaway thread on the Yahoo Group between 8 am and 8 pm EST to be included in the drawing.

Authors, if you’re interested in participating in the giveaway, send an email to s.j.frost3 [at] AND [at] with what you’d like to donate for the April giveaway. In the future we’ll include you in our monthly announcement for a chance to donate. You can participate as little or as often as you’d like. During the Reader Appreciation Day event, everyone who donated a book in the giveaway is welcome to post to the group with a blurb and buy link for their donated book(s). Gift certificates and other prizes are welcome too.

Hope to see you at TSS on April 7th!
