Kindle Fire and romance author Kelly Moore [giveaway]

This next romance author writes so the characters inside her head can come to life.

Kelly Moore has always been an avid reader and kept journals. Until Broken Pieces, she never had the courage to attempt an erotic romance book and submit it for publishing.

Kelly tends to embrace the brokenness in all of us, believing it makes us who we are. She loves to see people come out strong and win against past pains.


In Kelly's books you'll find plenty of romance and suspense. She has hot military guys, bad boy billionaires, and others that might strike your fancy. On the other hand she also has strong, sassy, heroines.

Her latest release, Fading Into Nothing, is a steamy, suspenseful romance that's laced with a touch of humor.


My life is at a stand still as I watch it all fade by. It’s the most beautiful, and yet, tragic thing I’ve ever seen. I lost everything, and I mean everything. But a single moment can change who we are. It can make or break you.

When Will Taylor sits down next to me, he totally derails my plans. His cocky assurance makes me laugh, and he begins to make me hope.

Now, I measure my life minute by minute and I cherish every moment with him, because I know it won’t last long. Nothing ever does for me.

Will Taylor wants me.

Will Taylor loves me.

But will he keep me from Fading Into Nothing, or will I be left to save myself?

So who wants to win something?!

In celebration of the release of Fading Into Nothing, Kelly Moore and I have partnered up to give away a Kindle Fire tablet to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

$40 Amazon gift card and romance author Susan Meier

This next author's romantic characters are as different as night and day.

Susan Meier's aim is to deliver a heartwarming story that reminds readers that family and love go hand in hand. Deep down inside, most of us are looking for home – more than a place to hang our hats, but a place to love and be loved.

Sweet, funny, or sad, Susan's characters make some serious lemonade out of their lemons! Because that's how she sees life.


In Carrying the Billionaire's Baby, Jake and Avery are as different as night and day. The only place they're compatible is in bed. What started out as a one-night stand became a fling... and a baby.

Avery's happy, as long as Jake stays and arm-length away. Jake is shocked, and the last thing he wants is to stay away. He wants Avery and the Baby on his terms. But Avery's not like any other woman he's met.

Chapter 1

Jacob McCallan strode down the quiet hall of Waters, Waters and Montgomery – the law firm employed by his family – with tall, lanky Pete Waters, senior partner.

“So, how’s your mother holding up?”

Jake glanced at Pete, not surprised he’d asked. His father had died five months before and everyone was worried about his mom. “She’s working to pull herself together. Some days are better than others.”

“Rumor has it she headed the last board of directors meeting.”

Jake grimaced. Nobody was supposed to know about that, but Pete had sources everywhere. Jake chose his words carefully. “She tried.”

“Tried?”


Still curious about the author? Time for an interview with Susan...

What inspires you to write?
I've written from the time I was a little girl, but I've always loved the concept of love. The idea that two people could care for each other enough to commit for life fascinates me. I've been married to the same person for a good many years and I know what it takes to really love somebody...and I try to get into my books a sense that my two characters will be able to make it through for the rest of their lives no matter what comes up.

How long does it take you to write a book, on average?
I write in stages. Planning a book and writing a proposal for my publisher takes about three weeks. If all is approved, I can normally write the rest of the book in six weeks.

What are you working on right now?
I'm working on a really cool series for Harlequin call Manhattan Babies. It follows the stories of three bachelors who are positive they are destined to remain single and the women who help them to heal from past hurts so they can fall in love. There are babies involved...thus the series title. LOL All three books are fun, yet emotional. The first book is CARRYING THE BILLIONAIRE'S BABY, which is out this month. Next up is A DIAMOND FOR THE SINGLE MUM, which is out in February. I'm just finishing the proposal for book 3. We don't yet have a title for that one. :) When the hero from book 2, Seth McCallan, gets married, his best friend Trent realizes Seth's younger sister is pregnant and he offers to fly her to France to find her artist boyfriend so she can tell him they are about to be parents. But they can't find Pierre and by the time they do Sabrina realizes she's falling for her brother's friend. It's a fun romp around Europe as these two wounded souls admit their fears and fall in love.

What's the best writing tip you can offer?
I actually teach a bunch of writing workshops. If I were to draw only one tip from all of them I'd have to say be yourself. Find YOUR voice. Don't mimic. Don't copy. Find you. Be you. If you have a desire to write, that probably means you have a distinct voice. That's your ticket to success.

What's a book written by another author everyone should read in their lifetime?
Anything from Nora Roberts. First, she has a voice and she uses it. Second, no matter what genre she writes in she can find a way to make her stories unique. Third, she's simply incredibly gifted and her stories always entertain.

$40 Amazon gift card & mystery author Dianne Harman

It was just a doll, wasn't it? It didn't have powers, did it? Powers that could kill?

Dianne Harman draws her stories and characters from a diverse business and personal background. She previously owned a national antique and art appraisal business, and left that industry to open two yoga centers where she taught yoga and certified yoga instructors.

An avid reader, Dianne brings the richness of life experiences to her Coyote Series novels, Blue Coyote Motel, a quarter finalist in Amazon’s Breakthrough Novel Award contest, a Goodreads Psychological Thriller and e-thriller Book of the Month, Coyote in Provence, and Cornered Coyote.


New Orleans is famous for its pralines, beignets, jazz, Bourbon Street, and the French Quarter. But there’s a darker side to the Big Easy, one that involves voodoo and gris-gris.

Nicole Rogers recently moved to Red Cedar from New Orleans. She’d lost weight, became engaged, and had a new job as the manager of a local bank in the small town. But when she found voodoo dolls in her gym locker, work desk, and on her front porch, she was scared. She knew what receiving the dolls meant – someone wanted to hurt her or kill her, and she was right. A few days later, Nicole’s body was found on her front porch with a voodoo doll next to it. She’d been murdered.

What is the connection between Nicole’s murder and the voodoo dolls? Liz Lucas, an amateur sleuth, is determined to find the connection and catch the killer. While on a trip to New Orleans to attend a cooking school known for its Cajun-Creole style of cooking, she learns a lot from a gris-gris doctor who specializes in voodoo, hexes, spells, and superstitions.

But who would want to kill Nicole? Was it the bank employee Nicole fired? What about Nicole’s sister, who had legally changed her name to Marie Leveau (the Queen of Voodoo in New Orleans)? Or Candace Norgan, the woman her fiancĂ© dropped when he fell in love with Nicole? Or even Maddie, Nicole’s friend and the Assistant Manager at the bank?

Join Liz and her dog Winston as they search for the killer.

Still curious about the author? Here's a few question about books from a previous feature with Dianne...

What inspires you to write?
It sounds trite, but I love to tell stories. Fortunately or unfortunately, I'm pretty much what they call a panster. I make about a half a page of notes regarding who is going to get killed and a list of the suspects as well as the venue. From there I read it as I write it, and it's often as if the story is simply unwinding in my head while I'm writing it. For instance, when my son, daughter-in-law, and my husband were on a private wine tour of a winery in Sonoma, the guide mentioned in passing that every year a couple of died when they fell into a wine vat. I immediately thought of a book and it became "Murdered By Wine".

What's the best writing tip you can offer?
The best writing tip is one I was given when I started. Sit down and write. There will be times you don't want to write, but once you sit down and start writing, the juices begin to flow. If you don't like the first parts of what you've written, get rid of it and keep the good stuff. Secondly, don't try and write and edit at the same time. You're using the left brain when you edit and I believe it stops the creative flow.

What's a book written by another author everyone should read in their lifetime?
If anyone is thinking of becoming a writer, I think Steven King's book, On Writing, is the best. I was one of those who didn't think I could write a book because I'd never attended a writer's conference, didn't think I knew enough about anything to write, yada, yada. He more or less says, "Just do it" and I did and never looked back! As far as other books that should be read---I'm always reading three or four at a time and generally think whatever I'm reading is great, or I would have stopped reading it after I realized I really didn't care what happened!

Amazon gift card and the return of vampire author Rosemary A Johns

Up next is a book you can sink your teeth into from an author whose name might sound familiar. Rosemary A Johns has returned to the blog to celebrate her latest release!

Rosemary 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 Princess is the second book of the Rebel Angel Series and will leave you breathlessly waiting for the third.


Held prisoner, Violet never anticipated her long-lost mother would be the poisonous Queen of Angel World. Or that she’d be forced to rule as a corrupted princess or risk a perilous escape.

When a harem boy angel draws Violet into the dark court’s twisted sports, she’s thrown into deadly trials that even her monstrous powers may not be able to overcome. If she refuses, both the snarky angel and geek vampire she loves will be enslaved to a powerful cult.

No matter what she chooses, she’ll be facing the dangers of Angel World on the eve of war…

Win a $40 Amazon gift card with romance author Misty M. Beller

Recognize the name of this author? I featured her back in April!

Misty M. Beller writes romantic mountain stories, set on the 1800s frontier and woven with the truth of God’s love. She was raised on a farm in South Carolina, so her Southern roots run deep.

God has placed a desire in Misty's heart to combine her love for Christian fiction and the simpler ranch life, writing historical novels that display God's abundant love through the twists and turns in the lives of her characters.


Writing is a dream come true for Misty. Her family, both immediate and extended, is the foundation that holds her secure in that dream.

She has just released the second book in the bestselling Heart of the Mountains series, called This Freedom Journey.

Adrien Lockman is through with the political unrest and bloodshed in his home country of France, so he sets off to the Canadian territory’s mountain frontier, in search of a place where a man can live his own life in peace. The last thing he expects to find is a woman, half-starved and half-frozen in a shack nestled among the towering peaks of the great Rocky Mountains.

Mary Standish thought she’d finally found a place where she was accepted, trapping with her husband for the Hudson Bay Company. But when he dies after a gruesome grizzly fight, she determines to carry on their work. After all, life in these remote mountains is better than enduring the scorn and snubs of “civilized” folk. When she’s forced to face a winter harder than any she’s endured yet, her stubbornness may just be the death of her. Until a stranger appears at her ramshackle door.

Adrien had planned to explore the mountain country all winter before he settles down to build a farm in the spring, but he can’t leave this woman to die in the elements. Even though she seems desperate for him to go. As Mary regains strength, she’s torn between wanting to save her dignity, and craving the respect of this man who’s slipped past her defenses. As the winter worsens, the truth becomes all too real—the only way they’ll survive is together.


Still curious about the author? Here are a few questions about books from a previous feature with Misty...

What inspires you to write?
Ooh, that’s a great question! I’d have to say a good story inspires me. Most of my books are set in the Rocky Mountains during the 1800s, and I love those remote frontier settings. A great story in that setting inspires me!

What's the best writing tip you can offer?
Get connected in a good national writing group. I’m part of American Christian Fiction Writers, and there are lots of groups out there for almost any genre. These groups provide excellent opportunities to learn the craft of writing, marketing, and networking. I wouldn’t have lasted long as a writer without ACFW!

What's a book written by another author everyone should read in their lifetime?
Hmm…That’s a tough one! Fiction can be so subjective, depending on a person’s tastes. There are some great non-fiction books, too! If I had to pick just one, I’d say the Bible.

Amazon gift card and contemporary fiction author Krysten Lindsay Hager

I discovered this next author thanks to a connection with Diana Anderson-Tyler, whose name might sound familiar if you follow the blog.

Krysten Lindsay Hager writes about friendship, self-esteem, fitting in, frenemies, crushes, fame, first loves, and values.

Who would have thought that daydreaming in math class would pay off for Krysten down the road? I can tell you that I paid attention for the most part considering I was going for my math degree! Krysten went a different route...


Can Dreams Come True? is the first book of Krysten's Cecily Taylor Series.

You can probably guess that most teenage girls develop a crush or two on pop stars. Maybe you even have a crush at the moment. Well, you'll find that this book is will bring fruition to the imagination.


Cecily has always had a huge crush on singer Andrew Holiday and she wants to be an actress, so she tags along when her friend auditions for his new video.

However, the director isn’t looking for an actress, but rather the girl next door—and so is Andrew. Cecily gets a part in the video and all of Andrew’s attention on the set. Her friend begins to see red and Cecily’s boyfriend is seeing green—as in major jealousy.

A misunderstanding leaves Cecily and her boyfriend on the outs and Andrew hopes to pick up the pieces as he’s looking for someone more stable in his life than the models he’s dated.

Soon Cecily begins to realize Andrew understands her more than her small-town boyfriend—but can her perfect love match really be her favorite rock star?

Still curious about the author? Time for an interview with Krysten...

What inspires you to write?
I find inspiration all over. Music, movies, TV shows inspire me and I also find inspiration in everyday life. The idea of making people feel something is inspiring, but also knowing people will find an escape in a story inspires me to write. I know I really appreciate the books that helped me escape during a difficult time.

How long does it take you to write a book, on average?
Each book has been different. Some have taken years, others about a year.per year. I am doing very well on that goal this year and on track to have about six books release in 2018. However, two of them were already partially written.

What are you working on right now?
I’m working on the sequel to my YA book, Can Dreams Come True right now. I’m also working on another YA novel and an adult novel. I have always enjoyed reading different genres, so I also like writing different ones as well.

What's the best writing tip you can offer?
To read as much as you can. It’s one thing that you really must do if you want to write. I also recommend having an idea box or Pinterest board to put story ideas and things that relate to your story.

What's a book written by another author everyone should read in their lifetime?
I didn’t connect with it until I was an adult, but The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald is a must read. I get something out of it each time.


So who wants to win something?!

Krysten Lindsay Hager and I have partnered up to give away a couple items - one lucky Giveaway Guy reader will win a paperback of Can Dreams Come True and another reader will win a $20 Amazon gift card.
