Congratulations also to S. Lee! Your book has been tweeted, shared on Pinterest, added to my Goodreads TBR for the event, and shared on Facebook.

PITCH your book in the comments. Put the LINK to your book in the Rafflecopter form. Tell me why you think I'll like it, why I should check it out, and a little about the story. DO NOT give me a synopsis. I can get that from Amazon. Make it personal or make it funny. I care not. I'll be grabbing a sample of every book pitched and go from there.

AUTHOR ONLY entries will be removed from Rafflecopter before a winner is chosen. If you want a shot at winning the prizes, put BOTH in the box asking how you're entering.

I strongly encourage you to check out the works of your fellow Indie authors. Chat in the comments, talk each other up, make friends!

Book reviewers! You're welcome to play along, too! Meet and greet authors. Get new books to read and review. It only works if we all work together.
If you haven't joined my 2015 Review Team, do that here

**Kindly remember, there's no guarantee your book will be reviewed by me. You will get a purchase if your sample interests me, and I'll try my best to read it. But if I find I can't give it more than 2 stars, I won't write the review. I've had a few I couldn't finish and it led to me not giving a review.**

Now it's time to announce the winners from Friday's giveaway!

Let's get back into the pitching! Throw me a fast ball. I'm totally ready.

Well, that's all for today, folks! Until next time, WRITE ON!



  1. I’ll try my luck too.
    My book is Kindling Flames-Gathering Tinder and it isn’t your average blood sucking vampire book. I warn you, this book will suck you in and leave you looking for the next one.
    The werewolves of Brenton are having trouble with something setting fire to parts of the city. Unable to stop it on their own, they seek out the help of the most powerful vampire in the area, Darien Ritter.
    Darien is a vampire in a bit of denial. Instead of reveling in the world of the night like most, he has built a massive empire in the business world. He enjoys the challenges of the corporate world and keeps everything in line with the help of his new personal assistant, Victoria Westernly. Fortunately, Darien hides his true nature very well.
    Troubles come when the alpha werewolf shows up at Darien’s office and begs him to take the cities woes to the Vampire Council of Brenton. Reluctantly, he agrees.
    Now, Darien has to find some way to convince the vampires to let go of their hatred for the wolves and help to stop what is hurting the city. And poor Vicky, unaware of anything supernatural, gets taken along for the ride.

    1. Hiya, Julie!! Welcome to the blog :) I've seen a lot about this book around Facebook. Been wanting to have a reason to check it out. Thanks for your time in pitching. Sorry about the delayed response, but I assure you it isn't out of disinterest :) Eager to grab this sample!

    2. Hmm, I am not much of a vampire fan, but I shall check this out. It sounds interesting. :)

  2. Ben Parker loved his wife. When he died in WWII and reached the afterworld, he learned she had many years left to live. Wanting to wait for her, Ben joined the Bureau of Investigation. As an agent, he could travel back to earth disguised as a human - except Ben never found his wife despite years of searching for her. On the verge of giving up hope, Ben learns his wife’s soul was found in seventeen-year old, Emma Bennett. Knowing she is about to face a life-changing event, Ben goes undercover as a high school student to be there for her in the aftermath of this tragedy. But pretending to be a teenager isn’t what it’s cracked up to be, and when duty calls, Ben has to put his love life on hold.

    Aftermath is told in altering points of view. Experience Ben’s world, and at the same time see how Emma starts over – in a new school and state. When Emma meets Ben, she immediately falls for him. But when Ben seems distracted, Emma starts hanging out with the school’s bad boy.

    Will two soulmates reconnect again? Find out in Aftermath by Sandy Goldsworthy.

    1. This sounds interesting. So is his wife's soul in a different girl's body? Is how that happened part of the mystery? Or is it like she was reincarnated? Like the name Ben Parker because it's the same as Spider-Man's uncle. :)

    2. Yes it does sound interesting. Not sure I've ever read a novel with a plot quite like it, either. Sweet! Thank you soooo much for the addition of this title to my collection of samples :) I'm excited to check it out!!

    3. Ooh, sounds like reincarnation. Love it. Gonna go check it out.

  3. Frostbite (Touch of Frost #1).

    ~Love is warm and fuzzy for most people, and it would be for seventeen-year-old Amanda Smith, too, if her kisses didn't cause frostbite~

    You might like this unique coming-of-age book about Mandy, a teenager trying to figure out how she fits in the world while dealing with uncontrolled freezing abilities she surprisingly inherited from her mother…who was killed by the scientists who made her.

    She finally settles down in a town, hopefully free from the scapel-toting scientists chasing her and lands a best friend and popular boyfriend. Normality at its finest, right?

    But for a girl who can shoot snow from her hands and lift a two-ton truck over her head like a bag of feathers—normal is not an option.

    1. Lynn, I think I'd enjoy Mandy's story very much. Sounds like a touch of Frozen trouble :) Awesome. Thanks for coming by and joining the party! Welcome to the madness. :)

  4. For my first attempt at erotic romance, this book can hang with the best of them. With its unique story lines and strong characters, adult readers are likely to favor a scene. Whether you're an older lady who loves to be with younger studs or ex-lovers trying to rekindle your old flames or a stranger in a strange land who wanna hit it off with another stranger or regular lovers who wanna spice things up or girlfriends playing tag with a hot stud, the book packs enough detail to keep you turning the pages while stimulating your senses.

    1. Sounds scandalous, Peprah. Thanks for coming back around and giving a second pitch. :) It's awesome to see you return!

  5. This is my debut novel: When Love Comes (Diamond Creek Alaska Series, Book 1): the first novel in a series - a poignant, passionate, and uplifting contemporary romance set in the beautiful, wild, and quirky community of Diamond Creek, Alaska.

    The Winters brothers, three sexy, rugged and handsome frontiersmen, are only a few of the characters in Diamond Creek. In When Love Comes, you will meet Hannah and Luke and share their journey. Once wild and impulsive, Hannah shut her heart off to love and adventure after her parents died.

    Burned once before, Luke Winters has committed himself to nothing but casual dalliances with women. Rugged, handsome and sexy, Luke finds no shortage of women happy to oblige. When Hannah and Luke meet, their attraction is instant. Both fight the depth of their feelings—love is not part of the plan.

    I lived in Alaska for over a decade and writing this allowed me to delve into that amazing setting. This story is a sweet, steamy romance with emotional depth.

    1. I love books where the author lived where they're writing about :) Makes it feel so much more "real," if you know what I mean. Thank you for pitching your novel! Welcome to the madhouse. :) I look forward to checking out Hannah and Luke's story.

  6. Aloha :)

    Today I'm going to pitch a different book, Sugar Baby Lies, which is my third novel!

    What do you get when you get you're a single mother with minimal education and limited abilities who becomes a sugar baby to one of the world's leading (not to mention insanely private) orthopedic spine surgeons? A romance story, of course.

    Lucy is a strong woman who simply has bad luck. Bradley's a man who is private and wants someone to spend time with. For two years, their arrangement is straightforward, but then, everything changes. Ha, when doesn't it?!

    But it's not all sweet, there's a little heat, and you will probably just. Just warning ya. :)

    1. hahaha, what's up with me and the typos?! I mean you will probably CRY! :P

    2. :P I dunno. This one sounds heart-wrenching! Seriously, I'm gonna have a huge TBR. LOL! Thank you for the addition of this one, C. S.!

  7. I'm afraid I'm not certain if there was a glitch in my attempt to comment. Forgive me if i'm repeating myself/whether with this account or a colleague's.

    Dawn of Steam: First Light is an alternate-history/emergent Steampunk epistolary novel. Unlike most Steampunk, it is set not at the height of the Victorian era, but in what we would call the Regency. In this alternate timeline, they don't call it that: after George III's 'Unfortunate Airship Accident,' there was no need for a legal regency. But though they may call it just the reign of George IV, the letters and journal entries which tell the story are written in 'Regency' style to us. In a timeline without Lewis and Clark, when people of the Victorian Steampunk era compile history, this particular airship expedition and the men and women who participated loom large. There's a lot of 'real world' history closely interlinked: the Year Without a Summer of 1815-6, the storm that made Long Island an island, etc. It's definitely science fiction, though. Napoleon was not, in our own timeline, brought down with dirigibles and a 19th-century version of Iron Man.

    1. No glitch, Jeffrey! Thanks so much for dropping by to pitch :) I've only read 2 steampunk novels (both were dystopian societies, and both were in the same series), so I'm looking forward to getting hold of another one! Just grabbed your sample. Will be digging in soon. Welcome to the blog!
