Amazon gift card & "When We Swing" by Kyla Ross

Friends have a way of breaking a person out of their comfort zone...

Kyla Ross is a horror, thriller, and dark fiction writer from Detroit, Michigan. She posts suspense and horror flash fiction on her blog, and is the author of a gruesome, suspenseful short story series titled A Trinity of Wicked Tales.


Kyla is also the author of an erotic thriller novel titled When We Swing, released a couple months ago in August.

Mark has always felt like an outsider. Growing up, being bullied and teased, he doubted his life would ever get better. Then he meets his new college roommate, Blain Prazzel.

Blain is the opposite of Mark, popular and oozing a sex appeal women can’t resist. Mark would kill to live in Blain’s world and gets his chance when Blain invites him and their roommate, John Motley, to a party.

After college, they go into business together and quickly become an overnight success. But when they each find their mates; their friendship is put to the test.

Will these women interfere with their bond or will they find a new adventure awaits each of them? Where darkness and light sing their own forbidden melody of taboo? Where words, when spoken, have the power to change their lives forever?

Still curious about the author? Here are a few questions and answers about books and erotica with Kyla...

What inspired you to write erotica?
I write dark fiction. However, there was a thriller brewing in my mind for months that would have only been complete if it were erotica. I also wondered what it would be like to have these ‘types’ of characters in relationships and have them ‘swing.’ It was a fun idea and I had to write about it.

Why do you think sex sells?
It’s natural. It’s something that most people engage in. It stimulates the mind (at least for me) rather I’m watching or reading it. Everything about it is fun.

How do you go about writing a good scene or chapter?
I try to make things as realistic as possible while keeping the character’s personalities and the plot in mind. Everything builds up to the twist which gets us to the jaw dropping ending.

What are your thoughts on the impact of 50 Shades of Grey?
It’s a pretty popular read. But it’s not my kind of read or movie. I can’t get into romance even though I tried. I like dark fiction so that’s what I write. When We Swing is a twisted thriller. Not a romance.

What advice would you give to an aspiring erotica writer?
Keep writing the hot stuff. There are plenty of people that love to read about it. Don’t be afraid to get a little or a lot ‘taboo’ with it. There are readers who like that also. The main goal is to finish the project and keep putting more out there. Share your smut with the world. You’ll regret it if you don’t.



So who wants to win something?! Kyla Ross and I have partnered up to give away a few items - two lucky Giveaway Guy readers will win a paperback copy of When We Swing and another reader will win a $20 Amazon gift card.

Burlap and Lace apple orchard candle [giveaway]

Fall is big here in Massachusetts with the leaves changing and crisp air. Halloween is big too with the history of witches in the area. In fact, there's an old witch house just down the road from me.

Burlap and Lace, based in Michigan, knows a thing or two about fall-themed candles though. The Etsy shop bloomed from Kailey's desire to have an area for artistic release.

Kailey has always loved scented candles, and the more scent the better. Her mission is to create candles that are both safe and healthy to burn, while maintaining a strong, beautiful scent. She fell in love with all-natural soy wax as it's toxin-free, eco-friendly, supports American agriculture, and burns beautifully with minimal to no ash. And it holds a tremendous amount of scent too.


I like the collection of fall candles, and there are about a dozen of them. These soy wax candle will fill your living room and home with the warmth and scent of fall.

Why choose soy? Soy wax is a natural, biodegradable, eco-friendly material. Soy is non-carcinogenic (i.e. does not contain ingredients that when burned could cause cancer) and it burns longer than petroleum-based paraffin waxes. Furthermore, soy supports the U.S. economy as it's grown by farmers and processed here in the U.S.


And then there's the "no place like home" collection like the Michigan candle pictured above. If you're from Michigan like my wife, you'll love that this scented candle will welcome you with the refreshing scent of brisk winds over Lake Michigan shores.

As of this writing there are 32 "no place like home" candles - see if your state is listed, otherwise feel free to contact Kailey. She would love to work with you to create a candle as special and unique as you are.

Now, who wants to win a candle?! Burlap and Lace is graciously offering a 16 oz apple orchard soy wax candle to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader. Kailey is also offering a 10% discount to anyone who spends $10 or more in the shop. Just use coupon code GIVEAWAYGUY at checkout.

$50 Amazon gift card & sci-fi author PTL Perrin

Our planet is full of mysteries.

How did these things, these creatures get here? Who made them, or how did they evolve? Questions like these have plagued P.T.L. Perrin since childhood, and it’s only recently that she has felt the nod from our Creator to explore them in writing.

P.T.L. Perrin is writing books that she would have loved reading when her family didn’t have television. Coming back to present day, she wrote the TetraSphere series as pure entertainment, and as a way to answer some of the unanswerable questions about our universe.


What if there are inhabited planets interacting with Earth? What happened to Atlantis? What if the fate of our planet were in the hands of four young people, each with special abilities, and each with his or her own struggles?

Pick up Terra’s Call, book #1 in the TetraSphere series, and let P.T.L. know if you enjoy reading it!

A Cherokee prophecy, escalating natural disasters and strange sounds, mark the approaching end of planet Terra, our Earth.

When Jewel Adams leaves home school for high school in her senior year, she discovers she’s not the only one with special abilities. Jewel, the Fletcher twins and Storm Ryder share a destiny as the only ones who might avert the coming disaster, but will their enhancements be enough to save Terra? Jewel sees auras and through disguises.

Sky is a strong empath and her twin brother Pax, the only one who can calm her, is able to smell pheromones and other scent molecules better than a bloodhound.

Storm’s telekinesis seems to be the most practical gift, but can he control it during one of his rages?

Will an ancient enmity between two star systems cause their mission to fail? Are they willing to take the chance? If they don’t, Terra will self-destruct and mankind will be destroyed.


So who wants to win something?! P.T.L. Perrin and I have partnered up to give away a $50 Amazon gift card to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

Amazon gift card & Summer Lane's "Running With Wolves"

I believe yesterday was the last day of summer, so how 'bout we cling to it and enjoy a book written by Summer Lane? How fitting a name...

Summer Lane is the #1 bestselling author of nearly two dozen thrilling books, including the phenomenal bestselling Collapse Series, Zero Trilogy and Collapse: The Illustrated Guide.


Running With Wolves releases TODAY and is a romantic adventure set amidst the gritty and awe-inspiring setting of Alaska during the last great Gold Rush.

He spilled their blood. Now, she’s out for revenge.

​Jenna Renee is a woman wronged. When her adoptive parents are brutally murdered by an outlaw named Conroy Parker and his gang of thugs, they take everything from her: her family, her happiness, and her money.

Determined to bring Conroy and his boys to justice, she acquires the help of a gruff but dangerous gun-slinging United States Marshal, Jeremiah Black, to help her hunt Conroy down.

But there is more to Alaska than meets the eye.

The cold touch of the arctic winter is dangerous, and the corruption of Conroy Parker and his comrades runs deep. The tundra is unforgiving, and so are the wolves. Nothing is as it seems.

If the wilderness doesn’t kill Jenna, the pack will. Revenge comes with a price, and so does love. There will be no mercy... only the hunt.

Still curious about Running With Wolves and the author? Here are a few questions and answers from the previous interview with Summer...

What was your honeymoon in Hawaii like?
So much fun! After a crazy year of writing and planning the wedding, I was relieved to get away. We honeymooned on the Big Island, in Kona. My favorite part about Hawaii was the tropical side of the island, over near Hilo. The botanical gardens and Rainbow Falls actually made appearances in one of my books because I was so astounded with the natural, exotic beauty of the tropics. Also, I’m pretty sure my husband and I spent most of our time in restaurants – we ate so much amazing food in Hawaii! We’re returning to Hawaii for our anniversary (although it will be on a different island this time – Maui!). I can’t wait!

What's the best writing tip you can offer?
Write what you love and write what you know. Less is more. Write freely but edit ruthlessly. Don’t be afraid to take risks, and to keep it real.

What's a book written by another author everyone should read in their lifetime?
The Call of the Wild, by Jack London. It’s one of those books that changed my life. It opened my eyes to the magnitude of Man’s real and terrible impact on the wilderness. The character of Buck is so flawlessly brought to life by Jack London, that I can tell you I have never been more touched by any other character – human or not. It’s really breathtaking. I highly recommend that everybody should read it at least once.

$50 Amazon gift card and the return of author Samie Sands!

Need a bit of suspense and terror in your next book? If you missed the previous feature of this author on my blog, then consider this zombie lover.

Samie Sands is a freelance graphic designer who followed her lifelong dream and uses her creativity in a new way by writing. With a degree in Media Studies and PR, Samie has already had articles published in a number of e-zines, including one of the most popular pieces at Zombie Guide Magazine.

She lives in a small seaside town in the UK, but loves to travel to gain inspiration from new places and different cultures.


Author Samie Sands has a three-part zombie series called AM13 Outbreak. The second book called Forgotten, shown above, kicks zombie butt as good as the first book called Lockdown. Forgotten continues the story of the AM-13 virus and is told from three different points of view.

All three books in the zombie book series are available now, and you can get them free on Kindle today!

Every attempt to contain the deadly AM13 virus has failed, leaving humanity on the brink of extinction…

The plague is spreading out of control with no cure in sight. Then the government announces its new plan—a sanctuary in an area completely untouched by the infected—as long as you can get there alive and unscathed.

Ethan Watton has managed to survive this long, even with OCD making every day more hellish than it already is…

Ethan’s obsessive-compulsive disorder dramatically affected his life before the infection began. Now he’s desperate to get as far away from the zombie virus as humanly possible. Isolated and afraid, Ethan thinks there is no way in hell he will survive the epidemic.

Alyssa Turner has spent her teenage years prepping for the undead to challenge her zombie killing skills…

Still curious about the author? Here are a couple interview questions with Samie from the previous feature...


What inspires you to write?
For my first book, I wrote the book I wanted to read. I'd read a lot of book based in the zombie apocalypse and I found that the characters were always very capable. It made me wonder what would happen with an ordinary person trying to survive. Leah in Lockdown is normal, girl next door type without any skills to survive. Sometimes she's flawed and she doesn't always make the right choice, but that makes her more realistic.

How long does it take you to write a book, on average?
From the first idea to the finished book, I would say it takes me about a year. I feel like I have to do a few drafts to get it right, and I need to leave a gap in between each draft so I can create some distance to help me spot plot holes. Sometimes I get so involved in the story and the characters that I forget the reader doesn't know as much as me about the worlds I've created!

What are you working on right now?
Right now, I've just signed a contract for a completely different book. It's called Lottie Loves and it's very different from the zombie apocalypse in the Am13 Outbreak series. That isn't done though, I will be writing more!


So who wants to win something?! Like our last feature, Samie Sands and I have partnered up to give away a $50 Amazon gift card to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

$50 Amazon gift card & romance author Kim Carmichael

If you're in need of a book to spice up the fall season, how 'bout romance?

Kim Carmichael began writing when her love of happy endings inspired her to create her own. A Southern California native, Kim's contemporary romance combines Hollywood magic with pop culture to create quirky characters set against some of most unique and colorful settings in the world.


With a weakness for designer purses, bad boys, and techno geeks, Kim married her own computer whiz after he proved he could keep her all her gadgets running.

A multi-published author, Kim is a PAN member of the Romance Writers of America, as well as some small specialty chapters. When not writing, she can usually be found slathered in sunscreen trolling Los Angeles and helping top doctors build their practices.


Kim's Seducing the Stargazer is an entertaining romance book that many have enjoyed reading (check the reviews!).

You'll love this second chance romance and maybe the science theme too as this isn't something you often see in contemporary romance books. Seducing the Stargazer has good pace, interesting subplots, and two well-written characters.

With over one hundred million asteroids in the solar system, it took only one to bring them together again.

The stars have been the only constant in astronomer Winchester Carlsbad’s life. A pistol, she will do anything to continue her research on the Martian moons. When she discovers an asteroid on collision course with her former love’s rocket launch, she not only sees her opportunity to secure her telescope time, but to finally best the man who propelled her heart into a black hole when he walked away from her five years ago.

Billionaire Dr. Garner Knox is the face of astronomy to the public and a media darling. As spokesperson and investor in Personal Space, a privately owned space corporation, he has only one problem—his company can’t seem to get anything up. When Wynn fires back into his life and throws his mission into a tailspin, he knows he must get the one person who never believed in him to help him get his probe into orbit.

Working with Garner, Wynn battles the for profit space agency as well the sexy stargazer who rekindles her desires and makes her fall all over again. Garner fights to lasso his loose cannon from angering his investors and learns that vanishing from Wynn’s life didn’t make her disappear from his heart.

$50 Amazon gift card & children's author Tonya Macalino

If you saw the previous feature of this author, you probably know she's a paranormal author. But Tonya Macalino is a children's author too.

Tonya is a wife, mother, and author of futuristic thrillers and children's chapter books. An avid collector of folk history and folklore, she weaves the colorful tales of times past into a rich tapestry giving depth to the fast action of her stories.


Where does Tonya get her ideas?

Images from daydreams, leftover moments from the realm of the Sandman, impressions of what places must once have been. Ironically, the scene which inspired the book generally becomes the most wooden and awkward of the whole piece. Things that look beautiful as mental paintings don’t tend to flow all that well when populated by beings that are expected to behave believably.


For children, Tonya's highly acclaimed urban fantasy adventures, The Gates of Aurona series, remind readers of the magical family secrets from Spiderwick Chronicles as well the legendary call to heroism of Chronicles of Narnia and the Dark Is Rising.

The first book in the series, Into the Hare Wood, is a story that turns everyday life into something magical and full of possibility. Tonya Macalino weaves together our everyday world with mythic reality. Illustrations are done by Maya Lilova, which are reminiscent of Disney character art in my opinion.

The family curse just slipped out of the shadows and into their backyard...

Instead of spending summer break splashing in the pool, Hannah and Cameron Troyer find themselves solemnly guarded by ranks of neighborhood cats and haunted by a madman from the woods.

Did Dad forget to tell them something about their ancient Italian ancestors?

And can Hannah and Cameron unravel the secret on their own before the madman takes his revenge?

"Clang, clang, clang:
The sword against the golden gate.
The treasure waits within."


So who wants to win something? Tonya Macalino and I have partnered up to give away a $50 Amazon gift card to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

Everyone gets a sneak peek of the first chapter of Into the Hare Wood!

Women's shirts are now available at TallSlim Tees! [giveaway]

I'm back with more to share about TallSlim Tees - shirts are now available for women!

Whether you're male or female, if you're tall then you might like this brand. I can browse everything they carry and know that something will fit just right. The shirts come in a variety of sizes, styles, and colors for men 6'0" to 7'0" and for women 5'8" to 6'4."

TallSlim Tees was founded in 2014 by Dan Deceuster after years of frustration (much like my own) with t-shirt sizes, and designed a custom t-shirt specifically for tall, lean men like myself.


They have also designed shirts for women now, the original v-neck shown above, and the original scoop neck.

You'll find that the fabric of these tees is soft, flexible, and light. It's made to drape well on a long, slender frame without being too loose or too clingy. Be sure to check out the sizing because it's not standard.

Vizsla/goat standoff

There's Jennifer holding back Henry so he doesn't touch the electric fence. There's a bunch of goats at a nearby park that are there to eat all the brush. The color of her shirt is called green, but as you can see it's more teal than true green.

Jennifer's wearing the v-neck, which is the women's version of a shirt I proudly own, the men's tall v-neck. It's the original and top-selling v-neck t-shirt, made from a 50/50 cotton polyester blend - soft and lightweight. I'm 6'5" and the large fits like a dream.

This v-neck is designed specifically for slim & tall men looking for a tailored fit. It kinda hugs your figure so don't be shy now.

Typically I'm an XL shirt, but a L fits perfect.

Browse around the shop and you're bound to find something you like. Oh, and 2-day USPS Priority shipping in the U.S. is FREE! There's no catch.

As you might expect, TallSlim Tees and I have partnered up to give something away! One lucky Giveaway Guy reader will win a women's shirt (either the v-neck or scoop neck) in your choice of size and color.

$50 Amazon gift card & author Samantha LaFantasie's Nepherium [giveaway]

If the name Samantha LaFantasie sounds familiar it might be because I featured one of her books that was co-written with another author I've featured. Happy to have her.

Hailing from Kansas City, Missouri, writing has always been a passion for Samantha LaFantasie. She has forgone all other desires to devote time to writing, even though she often finds herself arguing with her characters throughout much of the process.

Samantha is primarily a fantasy writer but often feels pulled to genres such as sci-fi, romance, and others. She became a bestselling author with the Pandora Boxed Set (which included Made to Forget: Nepherium Novella series--Part One) on both Amazon and USA Today.

When she isn't writing and arguing with her characters, Samantha spends her free time chasing her three kids and dog named Fido. She also enjoys photography and playing her favorite game of all time, Guild Wars 2.


Nepherium -- The Complete Series is a collection featuring all three parts of the Nepherium novella series in one convenient set!

Made to Forget:
"There’s something that lies within my memory. Hidden in the dark. Something that can kill me and those that I love. But I was in an accident, covered in mystery and deception. And my memory…was lost. There are those who want me to remember. I don’t trust them. And those I do trust…are fighting for me to forget."
Elsabetha Ellery wants to get her memory back, even if it kills her.
After waking up in a hospital with no memory, Elsabetha quickly learns those who claim to be her friend are anything but. And those who are her true friends keep themselves unseen.
Stuck with piecing together her broken memories alone, Elsa struggles with having faith in those she trusts and heeding the warnings of the dangers in recovering her memory. Ignoring them, she faces heavy consequences. Ones she doesn’t see until it’s too late, and a life is lost.

Echoes of Memories:
"Traitor… Liar… That’s what they call me. No one believes me. Not even my team. I know it’s up to me to get the answers. To stop the corruption and unlock my memories. I’ll do anything to get them back. Even if my hands will be covered in blood."
Elsa's every move is scrutinized. She’s labeled a traitor by those she sought for protection, and kept from her family and team. Regaining memories has been a slow process. Too slow for the Council's liking, taking matters into their own hands.
The new captain has history with Elsa and operates with a hidden agenda. Even Elsa’s team reacts differently toward her. If only she could unlock her memories. Everything is playing right into Alexander's hand, even amassing an army with unconventional methods, designed to annihilate the Nepherium—starting with Noah. Elsa will do anything to stop Alexander ... even kill.

Forced to Remember:
"The weight of the world feels heavy on my shoulders. Desperation touches everything. Memories forgotten, truths untold. Humanity is threatened. Their safety granted in exchange for me. But I won’t go without fight."
With strange occurrences taking place in the city, it’s up to Elsa and her team to discover why. But an odd encounter at an abandoned warehouse leaves the team with more questions than answers. Just when the team least expects it, Alexander returns, and he’s not alone or without demands: the world’s safety in exchange for Elsa. They have only one week to decide while the world falls under Alexander’s wrath and his powerful army of followers. Avalon seeks help from every Nepherium that can be spared and hope it will be enough to stop Alexander.

Not part of the Nepherium series is SIN EATER, the first book of the Aria Knight Chronicles by USA Today bestselling author Samantha LaFantasie and Alesha Escobar, author of the bestselling Gray Tower Trilogy.

The Aria Knight Chronicles: SIN EATER

Aria Knight has an unusual set of skills: she will hold back the hounds of Hell so that you can fly toward the Pearly Gates, and she will wipe your slate clean so you don't become karma's bitch…for a price.

A Sin Eater has to make a living in today's world somehow.

But when she's called in the dead of night to perform her rite for a recluse billionaire, she stumbles upon a murder scene, and the evidence points to her.

In an attempt to clear her name and uncover the true culprit, Aria is forced to team up with a private investigator who's possessed by three spirits and a handsome wizard who would rather see all Sin Eaters like Aria go extinct.

Aria knows her job is never easy, but now it’s become downright deadly.

Kindle Fire & "Dark Rooms" author Sionna Fox [giveaway]

If you're in need of a book to spice up the impending fall season, how 'bout erotica?

Sionna Fox has been writing stories her whole life. Her first book was about dinosaurs, which sounds like something I would have written since I was once obsessed with dinos.

Sionna was late to the romance game, but hasn’t looked back and firmly believes romance novels can save your life.


Sionna is also the winner of the 2016 IRWA Indiana Golden Opportunity contest in the erotic romance category, and for "Best of the Best."

She lives in New England (like I do) with her very patient husband and a very put-upon dog. And I certainly know how sly, put-upon dogs with a Vizsla at home.

When it comes to the kink genre, Sionna is tired of sex clubs and tortured billionaires with traumatic back-stories. She wants heroes and heroines to be normal people, with normal problems, who happen to be kinky.

Once Sionna started getting involved in Romancelandia, she found a lot more books like the ones she was looking for, but still had stories to tell. Just a few months ago (June 2017) she published Dark Rooms.


When they met on Friday night, he dominated her. When he walked into her classroom Wednesday morning, she was in charge.

Aimee Eastman has rules. Rules for her photography students. Rules for the partners she submits to at kinky house parties. That is, until the hot, young Dom who had her last weekend walks into her classroom and tests all her boundaries. Every time their relationship dances on the line between teacher and student, Aimee swears it’s the last time. If only the swearing worked.

Wes Oliver is finally getting his life on track and going back to college. He’s determined to guard his heart and focus on his future. But when he finds himself falling for his professor, heating up the darkroom with steamy photos and stolen kisses, he’s afraid he’s slipping back into the same old habits.

The more they give into temptation, the more Wes is sure their connection is real, but Aimee fears the illicit thrill will wear off. Aimee must decide whether to retreat to the safety of her rules, or risk her reputation for love.

If you're in the New England area and you're interested in maybe crossing paths with Sionna, she'll be attending the Fall in Love with New England conference in Manchester, NH on October 13th and 14th.

She says she won't be there officially as an author, but there'll be lots of good times and swag. Join her at the conference!


So who wants to win something?! Sionna Fox and I have partnered up to give away a couple items. There will be two winners - one lucky Giveaway Guy reader will win a digital copy of Dark Rooms, and another reader will win a Kindle Fire.

It's Fall already? Pumpkin spice coffee giveaway

The first day of Fall is less than two weeks away (9/22). Where did the summer go? I didn't even go to the beach once.

As expected, I knew it wouldn't be long before I started seeing pumpkin everything. September hasn't even ended and everything is turning orange before my eyes. There's an entire aisle at the grocery store devoted to Halloween already.

Oh well. In the spirit of #PumpkinSpiceEverything, I have a box of Green Mountain Coffee to give away, and it's the pumpkin spice flavor! The giveaway is available to folks in the U.S.


Here's a little more about the pumpkin coffee:
  • Contains 24 K-cups
  • Fair trade certified limited edition seasonal flavor
  • Flavors of cinnamon, pumpkin and nutmeg; perfect coffee for the holiday season
  • K-cup perfect for Keurig Single Cup Brewers
  • K-cups also compatible with new Keurig 2.0 Brewer

I also have a bunch of other giveaways going on, so check 'em out if you haven't already!

BEARZ Outdoor picnic blanket [giveaway]

Wouldn't it be nice to have a clean space to sit on when camping or hiking? Without dragging along a chair.

Enter BEARZ Outdoor.

The BEARZ Outdoor picnic blanket is the perfect size for traveling, hiking, camping, and the beach. At 50" x 60" it's about the size of a typical throw, except this blanket can be stuffed into a pouch that comes with it.


The picnic blanket was designed to fit two persons comfortably, but they say it can fit up to 4. I would plan for two though.

The blanket also has corner pockets you can fill with sand to keep it from blowing away at the beach (I think we've all dealt with this), or you can put your keys and stuff in the pockets. There are loops on each corner if you happen to have stakes.

Here's what I like the most - the material is completely waterproof. And if you think about it, the blanket can be used a lot of ways to keep dry:
  • Keep your butt dry from the wet ground beneath you
  • Keep several people dry by using it as a shelter fly
  • Keep your sleeping bag dry by placing it underneath the bag
  • Or even use it as a tarp and wrap your belongings with it


So hook it onto your backpack (I always bring a pack if I have even a couple things to carry), or stuff it into your jacket pocket or something.

Now... who wants a blanket?! The folks at BEARZ Outdoor have been gracious enough to offer their outdoor picnic blanket to TWO lucky Giveaway Guy readers. One winner will receive a blue blanket, and the other will receive camo.

Reward your dog with Full Moon natural dog treats [giveaway]

I've been browsing dog blogs lately, getting answers to questions, tips for training, all that. I recently came across a review for Full Moon. It caught my eye because I'm a fan of all-natural things and I prefer to give my dog quality stuff.

Full Moon is proud to make natural dog treats in the U.S. using high-quality ingredients. To ensure the greatest flavor and nutritional value, they start with USDA-approved meats, raised on family-owned farms across the country.

Henry's ready for duck treats

I previously got my hands (or should I say paws) on some dog training treats for Henry to try. Full Moon products are made with 100% all natural, human grade ingredients. This means the ingredients they use are certified fit for humans to eat, but keep in mind the treats aren't for you - they're made for dogs.

So set aside those boring dry pellet treats and consider something that's way better (and healthier) for your dog. They'll appreciate it.

And since the treats are made with human grade ingredients, that means you shouldn't store them for too long. As Henry would probably tell you, open up that bag and start handing out the treats.

Where to purchase the training treats? They can now be found at select Walmart stores and online at Walmart.com, Amazon, and Chewy.

Walking through the wildflowers. Of course Henry ran ahead.

We like to use meat treats when we're outside. If Henry obeys a command he's rewarded with a really good treat. It's harder to keep a dog's attention outside so that's why the dog gets the good stuff.

Every day we take Henry hiking somewhere, and our go-to spot is Callahan State Park. Henry likes to venture ahead and it can be tough getting him to back to us, so we brought along Full Moon's duck training treats. No, not treats to train your duck.

After calling out to Henry and getting him to recall, he'd park his butt right down once we took the treat bag out. Good boy!

We've given him other treat brands and he didn't quite take to some, but he doesn't hesitate to devour these training treats. Your dog will taste the difference just like ours has.

So who wants to reward their furry friend?! The folks at Full Moon and I have partnered together to offer a prize package to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader:
  • Chicken jerky (big bag, 12 oz)
  • Chicken training treats (175+ count)
  • $10 Petco gift card

Put your pet's face on a shirt with Pop Your Pup [giveaway]

My wife and I are in love with our Vizsla. My brother-in-law has a shirt with his dog's face on it, made by Pop Your Pup, which we thought was pretty cool.

Pop Your Pup is changing the game when it comes to customized products. We all know that ordering things custom can have long turn-around times. But at Pop Your Pup they're constantly growing their team of artists to handle the workload to maintain a fast turn-around.

Jennifer and Henry

Love your dog? Put their face on a shirt! All you gotta do is provide a photo or two. Let Pop Your Pup worry about the angle and the lighting of the image. They've seen it all and they do their best to make it work.

No one likes waiting, so in just one business day the artists will have your pop art ready for you to review. Here's one of the pictures I sent to make a shirt for my wife:


And then Pop Your Pup sent back the pop art of Henry. Since they guarantee everyone will love their custom art, this means you can revise as many times as you want 'til you're 100% happy. I changed the color background twice and it wasn't a big deal.

They won't print or ship unless you approve! Here's what the final version of Henry's pop art looks like:


There are a variety of shirt styles to choose from. Jennifer's wearing a v-neck and the sizing fits exactly as expected. They only print on white shirts since it helps the pop art really stand out. But they may offer more colors in the future...

And if you don't have a dog that's OK. Pop art is not just for dogs - you can get any pet you like on a shirt. Check out their animal art.

Make a custom shirt to order! Pop Your Pup has been gracious enough to offer a custom shirt to TWO lucky Giveaway Guy readers.

Summer is basically over and it's getting darker earlier now. By the time I get home from work I've only got an hour or so of daylight left.

Find the best deals on cars at #CarsCom #ad

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own.

In the market for a car? Cars.com is a leading website helping car shoppers and owners (get ready for this pun) navigate every turn of car ownership. They've become one of the largest digital automotive platforms, connecting shoppers like myself with local dealers.


Through trusted expert content, millions of new and used vehicle listings, and the largest database of consumer reviews in the industry, Cars.com will help you buy, sell, and service your vehicles.

Cars.com is a great resource for researching your potential purchase. The site has a huge selection of information that will provide you with everything you need to make a smart purchase. They provide extensive reviews and information about a wide variety of different cars.

I've always thought a "beater" truck would be a lot of fun to travel around in on weekends and whatnot, and a couple months ago my wife gave me permission to buy one as my birthday present.

Me, Henry, and our used 1999 Ford F150

Well, I got a truck! A 1999 Ford F150 XLT with a V8 Triton engine. It's in even better condition that I needed. I mean, there was a truck I considered whose passenger door didn't even open. This one is a beaut in comparison.

I was obsessed with researching about trucks, scrolling on my phone whenever I was away from a computer. Cars.com was one of the places I researched and I enjoyed ogling all the trucks I couldn't afford too. It gave me ideas at least.

And most importantly when shopping for cars, the folks at Cars.com will give it to you straight. If something is poorly-rated or just isn't a good deal, they'll tell you. So start your car research there as it's an important part of car shopping, especially if you're a first-time buyer. Look no further to find the best car at the best price.
