Amazon gift card and romance author Kandi Steiner

To tell this story right, we need to go back.

Kandi Steiner is a bestselling author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. I gotta tip my cap because whiskey is not easy drinking for most of us.

Best known for writing “emotional roller coaster” stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance. No two of Kandi's books are the same.

If you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.


Kandi took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she's always been a die hard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges and triumphs of love.

A Love Letter to Whiskey is Kandi's most popular book and it's exclusive to Kindle and available on Kindle Unlimited.

It’s crazy how fast the buzz comes back after you’ve been sober for so long.

Whiskey stood there, on my doorstep, just like he had one year before. Except this time, there was no rain, no anger, no wedding invitation — it was just us.

It was just him — the old friend, the easy smile, the twisted solace wrapped in a glittering bottle.

It was just me — the alcoholic, pretending like I didn’t want to taste him, realizing too quickly that months of being clean didn’t make me crave him any less.

But we can’t start here.

No, to tell this story right, we need to go back.

Back to the beginning.

Back to the very first drop.

This is my love letter to Whiskey. I only hope he reads it.


And now, the moment you've been waiting for...

Who wants to win something?!

Kandi Steiner and I have partnered up to give away a couple items - one lucky Giveaway Guy reader will win a paperback of A Love Letter To Whiskey and another reader will win a $20 Amazon gift card.

Amazon gift card and romance author Jade Lee

This next author has been scripting love stories since she first picked up a paper doll.

Kathy Lyons is the wild, adventurous half of USA TODAY bestselling author Jade Lee. A lover of all things fantastical, Kathy spent much of her childhood in Narnia, Middle Earth, Amber, and Earthsea, just to name a few.

There is nothing Jade adores more than turning an ordinary day into something magical, which is what happens all the time in her books.


Winner of several industry awards including the Prism—Best of the Best, Romantic Times Reviewer’s Choice, and Fresh Fiction’s Steamiest Read, Jade has published over 50 romance novels.

And she’s just getting started.

Hitting It is a smart and sexy romance that will warm you up like sunshine on a spring day.

Making it to the Major Leagues is all rookie ballplayer, Rob Lee, has ever dreamed of. But now, he’s a little overwhelmed with his new celebrity status. Everyone wants a piece of the new heavy hitter for the Indianapolis Bobcats. Still, he’s worked hard for it, and he doesn’t have many regrets. Although there is one…

If journalist Heidi Wong wants to keep her job, she needs to come up with a story—fast! That’s why she tells her boss that she knows the Bobcat’s reclusive new slugger, Rob Lee. And she does…in the Biblical sense. During Spring Break three years ago, she and Rob shared a torrid night on the beach. And she’s wanted him again ever since.

But everyone knows reporters and athletes don’t mix. Rob’s contract doesn’t allow him to talk to the press, and her job depends on it. Which is driving them both just a little crazy…

So who wants to win something?!

Jade Lee and I have partnered up to give away a few items to THREE lucky Giveaway Guy readers:
  • Winner #1 will get a $20 Amazon gift card
  • Winner #2 will get a paperback of Hitting It
  • Winner #3 will get a paperback of Alpha Unleashed

Light your fire with the ElectroLight [giveaway]

If you followed my blog last summer you might remember I partnered with HomeRight to promote their fire starter.

Well, we're back again! Summer is great for campfires and grilling. You may already know about HomeRight - DIY projects are their focus. Their products and tools help make your project easier, faster, and neater.

HomeRight's ElectroLight Fire Starter is an easy way to light your campfire or grill. The ElectroLight allows you to easily light things in just 2-3 minutes like your grill, charcoal barbecue, wood burning fireplace, and fire pit.

homeright.com/products/electro-light-fire-starter

I had never seen anything like this fire starter until a year ago when I saw it on the HomeRight website. The starter uses super high 1,300°F temperature air to ignite and then fan the flames with a built-in blower. Be careful with this thing and definitely don't let kids get their hands on it.

Also, no need for lighter fluid or other starter chemicals. The red trigger button has a built-in safety feature, and it must stay depressed to hold temperature. Check out how easy it is to light charcoal:


  1. Touch the tip of the barrel to the charcoal or wood. At 1300 Degree you have more than two times the temperature required to ignite wood.
  2. Once you start seeing embers, while leaving the button depressed, pull the tip slightly away. The blower will continue to fan the flame.
  3. Continue until you get the desired level of fire started.

Some notable features:
  • Durable polycarbonate handle, aluminum cooling shroud, steel cased heating element and cooling stand
  • Intermittent power switch controls heating element and blower
  • 10' heavy gauge grounded power cord
  • Durable heating element, motor and switch to last for hundreds of lights

National Iced Tea Month is here! Komax pitcher giveaway

It's been real hot this past week in Massachusetts. 90 in late May is insane.

My go-to cold drink is iced tea, and matcha tea is my new thing. So many people like iced coffee, but I really don't like it. Iced tea is more refreshing in my opinion.

A Komax pitcher of iced tea is often in the fridge at home. The Komax Titan pitcher is made of plastic, but looks a bit like glass, and is also dishwasher safe. It holds two quarts, so that's about eight 8-oz glasses of water or iced tea or whatever you like.


Oh, and June is also National Iced Tea Month believe it or not. I feel like just a few weeks ago we had snow, and now it's June.

So in celebration of iced tea, I'm going to give away this Komax pitcher to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader. It's available to everyone worldwide.

Win a $100 Amazon gift card with Samie Sands - Living on Borrowed Time!

An endless future has been stretched out in front of us...

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.


You probably know by now that author Samie Sands has a zombie series called AM13 Outbreak, which you've likely seen from our previous features.

But she also writes women's fiction and romance! Living on Borrowed Time isn't your ordinary love story...

Lara Rogers isn’t supposed to be here. She was supposed to die over a year ago from a long-term illness, yet somehow she managed to make a miracle recovery. The only problem is now she has an endless future stretched out in front of her—one that she wasn’t expecting, and one that she has no idea what to do with.

After she got the positive diagnosis, she moved to the big city where she knows no one to become another anonymous face, but this life isn’t making her happy. In fact, she’s more miserable than ever.

An unexpected night out with a girl that seems to want to be her friend leads to all sorts of new experiences, including one that might even be love...

The only problem is Lara has spent so long not knowing who she is, that she doesn’t know how to act around all of these new people, and slowly things become increasingly difficult for her. She begins a negative spiral into self-destructive behavior, sinking deeper and deeper until she isn’t sure that she can ever get out.


Still curious about the author? Here are a few Q&As with Samie from last time...

What are some of the challenges you face when writing?
I think like most writers, it’s having the time to write and the right inspiration at the same time! The two very rarely seem to meet which can get frustrating!

How do you market your books?
I always find giving a little sample of the book is good, it gives people a little glimpse of what’s to come. Picking one for Not Dead Yet was hard because there are so many varied characters in so many weird and wacky situations. I also had movie scripts, diary entries, letters, and many more to choose from. But I decided to go for Luke Yates, a middle-aged man from Australia, who’s struggling with the loneliness brought on by the zombie apocalypse.

Other than writing, what are you working on these days?
I’m pretty much just writing. When I’m not writing books, I’m publishing articles, reviews, and other content. I don’t ever seem to be away from my laptop!

So who wants to win something?!

For the first time ever with an author, Samie Sands and I have partnered up to give away a $100 Amazon gift card to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

$50 Amazon gift card and vampire author Rosemary A Johns

Up next is a book you can sink your teeth into. One that offers an escape...

Rosemary A Johns writes sexy British anti-heroes, savage vampires, and epic battles. Rosemary writes fantasy for rebels because she writes what she loves to read. Also what she wishes she could discover.



That’s where the rebel comes in: Rosemary has always been a rebel!

She's been traditionally published as a short story writer. She's given readings and talks about dark fiction. The rebels in her head, however, were clamoring to get out and have their say in novels as well.

And who says no to a vampire?

Vampire Huntress is the first book of the Rebel Angel Series. Vampires and angels are locked in a deadly war. But first, they want their daughter back.

Half vampire/half angel, Violet, was abandoned among the humans in London as a baby. Suddenly discovering monstrous powers on her twenty-first birthday, she thinks she’s the most dangerous creature to prowl the streets.

She’s wrong.

When a snarky angel falls into her lap and her adopted sister disappears, Violet is forced into a new role: Huntress. But the deeper she’s dragged into this supernatural world, the more she struggles to survive.

On the run, Violet will have to rely on a sexy vampire geek, while facing off the harem boy angel threatening her sister. And there’s only one way she’ll win: by letting out the monster…

Dunkin Donuts gift card and author Julie C Gilbert [giveaway]

If you enjoy coffee and a good book, turn to Julie C. Gilbert for your next read. 

Julie mainly confines her writing to three genres: Christian inspirational, YA real-world science fiction, and normal science fiction.

Writing has made her super picky about the things she reads, but normally, her reading list includes something that fits under thriller, mystery, science fiction, or fantasy.


The first book in her Redeemer Chronicles series, Awakening, is a fast, captivating fantasy told from several points of view. There are even some zombies!

Victoria Saveron knows two things for certain. Dark forces want to kill her, and her friends have cooler powers than she does. Katrina can shapeshift and Tellen can tap into destructive magic currents.

Everything else is uncertain and rumors abound.

Victoria might be the Chosen One, whatever that means. Her father might be able to help them, but only if they can find him. Coldhaven’s villagers might be able to offer them food and shelter. Some fool might be running around unlocking Darkland portals to raise an undead army.

The further Victoria and her companions get on their journey, the more dangers and betrayals they face. They must awaken Vic’s true powers or forfeit the world.


Want to know a bit more about the author?

Julie C. Gilbert is once again answering to “Miss Gilbert” as a high school chemistry teacher. She also writes YA, science fiction, fantasy, and Christian stories about characters she comes to admire but certainly not envy.

How the characters deal with all the triumphs and troubles that come their way is always a fun adventure for her. When not writing or reading or lesson planning, she enjoys sunshine, coffee, long walks, tea, and video games, not necessarily in that order.

Occasionally, she attempts short poetry. The poems turn into songs, which she sings with abandon when nobody's looking.



So who wants to win something?!

Julie C. Gilbert and I have partnered up to give away a few things and there will be three (3) winners:
  • Winner #1 will get a $20 Dunkin Donuts gift card & paperback of Redeemer Chronicles 1: Awakening
  • Winner #2 will get a paperback of Redeemer Chronicles 1: Awakening
  • Winner #3 will get a paperback of Redeemer Chronicles 1: Awakening

He enjoys creating other worlds, be that straight up fantasy adventure or sci-fi, or else something in the realms of myth and magic. Or even a foray into the occult and demonology.

For Logan, reading books provides a rest from reality and a chance to escape to a world which is truly anything you can imagine. Can you imagine as many things as he can?


One of Logan's favorite authors is Philip Reeve. His Mortal Engines series is fantastic and it was these books that inspired Logan to write The Harpy’s Song.

Stranded in a strange world, Trevor must choose between returning home and fighting for the future of Ëlamár.

But danger lies ahead. General Nirikó has gathered an army of the dead and means to lay siege to the beautiful city of Ârus, condemning all within to a fate far worse than death.

Trevor and his new friend Mèlli must cross carnivorous forests, travel in flying galleons and meet extraordinary creatures all to collect a single tear – from a dragon.

Trevor and Mèlli’s friendship is put to the test as their adventure unfolds and their conflicting goals are revealed. Will courage and loyalty prevail?

Spark conversation with a Zlighter electric plasma lighter [giveaway]

What's something cool you like to show your friends? I like to flash an electric lighter. It always get people talking.

Zlighterstore has something that is sure to spark conversation - electric plasma lighters!

Inspired by automakers like Tesla that use batteries to produce clean, eco-friendly products, Zlighterstore made it their mission to make butane fuel a thing of the past. Fuel is the opposite of eco-friendly.

Plasma arc lighter

Zlighter has listened. They've come up with an electric lighter that works for pipes, bongs, and just about anything that requires that open flame touch. All while retaining a sleek lighter design that fits in your pocket.

All you have to do is flip open the cap and press the button to get the little pink arcs firing, just like you see at the top of the silver lighter above. But be careful because the arcs are 900 degrees.

Wanna see an electric lighter in action? Watch this short video.


When traditional lighters run out of fuel, you throw 'em away, right? That's a waste of money. Zlighter lithium ion batteries can be recharged 500 times via USB (charger is included), which equates to tens of thousands of lights!

Say goodbye to lighter fluid. We've all encountered those hard to light recessed candles or avoided them because of the difficulty lighting them. The plasma wand is something new and designed for candle lovers.

The wand is easy to use and perfect for the home, kitchen, or gas stove. Keep it handy for a backyard BBQ, camping trip, fireplace, or an emergency fire starter.


Zlighters are also windproof, which I've tested. I even blew directly onto the arcs and they stayed lit. You don't have to shield the wind or cup your hands anymore.

So who wants an eco-friendly lighter?!

The folks at Zlighterstore have been gracious enough to offer up an electric plasma lighter and plasma wand. There will be TWO lucky Giveaway Guy readers - one gets the arc lighter and the other gets the wand.
