$50 Amazon gift card and children's author Connie Colon

Let's find out what the cool kids are reading...

Connie Colon began reading to her son ever since she was pregnant, which led her to trying her hand at writing children’s books from home. She's a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI).


Connie had the unique opportunity to have been selected to work with award-winning kid-lit superstar, Jerry Spinelli, during a week-long Highlights writers workshop in Chautauqua, New York in 2006. Talk about an honor that must have been! A magazine workshop that week sparked an idea for an article for FACES magazine that turned into a monthly feature called “Dear Tommy” that ran for over seven years. Connie has also written for other children’s magazines such as Fun For Kidz, Appleseeds, and a short piece for Highlights.

Being an artist, Connie tends to “think visually” as she writes, often picturing her stories as TV shows or movies. She hopes to develop her chapter books into animation one day. If you're going to dream, you may as well DREAM BIG!


School Rules is the first book in Connie's Principal Kidd series, a children’s book for ages 7-11.

Kids will not only get a kick out of this funny story, but they might also want to become the principal of their schools... if you can picture that!

Eleven-year-old whiz, Oliver Kidd, had no trouble using his genius IQ to skip grades and zoom through the accelerated college program.

But after landing a job as the world’s first kid principal back at his old elementary school, Oliver faces sabotage from the jealous vice principal, Mr. Dagger, along with challenges of a kid in charge of the teachers, parents, and students.

Good thing his trusty sidekick and school mascot, Chelsea the chicken, is on his side. Principal Kidd scores points with the students with his new rules, until the town health inspector shows up and threatens to shut the doors on Eggshell Elementary.

Join in on the giggles and mayhem as Oliver Kidd and his friends since kindergarten try to save Eggshell Elementary.

$50 Amazon gift card and fantasy author A.S. Crowder

What kinds of things do you get in trouble for?

A.S. Crowder has been writing stories ever since she first learned how to write, and she has about a million stories left to tell.

In school, A.S. got in trouble for writing stories during class. Now, she gets in trouble for writing stories when she’s supposed to be doing adult things, like cleaning the house or going to the store. When she’s not writing, she teaches sociology at local colleges and universities.


A.S.' first novel, Evin, there may be times where you'll find yourself lost for hours in the pages, fighting to tear yourself away.

Evin is available through Foundations, LLC. While many other small publishing companies focus on securing a large number of authors to maximize their own earning potential, Foundations focuses on A.S. by giving her their complete attention in all aspects of the novel.

An accident-prone best friend.

An ageless demigod cat.

A forest full of secrets.

No one ever said college would be easy...

Eva thought college would be a time for studying and bad decisions, but apparently, it’s also a time to save a magical forest from destruction.

$50 Amazon gift card and storyteller Laura Ranger

Laura Ranger is a natural storyteller.

She's been turning all of life into stories since she was young. This mother of one and grandmother of three began writing her fictitious stories down to the delight of her family and friends. She’s been writing her tales for over twenty years.

Laura became a published author when she put one of her short stories in a Christmas anthology in support of feeding children around the world, entitled Eight ‘Til Christmas. Once she saw one of her stories in print, she will tell you she can’t stop.


In Royalty, a first-time college girl moves to a remote area far from her Southern home, where she has been raised in the church. Once there, she senses something almost evil. Since getting to her college, bazaar things happen around and to her.

Rayne Martin is a typical teen excited to go off to college. However, the school she chooses at random is anything but typical and she begins to doubt she will ever fit in at Brighton College.

Rayne grew up in the Bible belt and attended church whenever her parents wanted her to. She considered herself to be a good Christian. When she truly commits to being a believer, she embraces the fact that she is a daughter of the King and therefore, Royalty.

Now God is calling on her to wage war against the demons and Satanists threatening to overrun Brighton. Rayne is sure He is mistaken. How can someone who has never even been in a fight lead in battle? Where will she find others willing to risk their lives to stand with her against such evil?

$50 Amazon gift card and sci-fi author Steve Soderquist

Do you enjoy things that are rather unorthodox?

Steve Soderquist is the Operations Director, Chief Editor, and Acquisitions Editor of Foundations Book Publishing Company. And he's also an author, having written and published three novels - a non-fiction "all-things-English" tutorial and a children's book.

Steve has edited, formatted, and worked with some of the best-selling authors of today and still insists he has the best job in the world - helping others reach their dream of being a published author.


The Mor is science fiction thriller at its finest. Prepare to read well into the night... if you dare! Suitable for ages 15 and up.

When the benevolent race known as the Illuminous visited earth back in the 1950's, they weren't aware of the aliens who had attached themselves to the hull of their ship. The Mor, also known as 'Seeds', found Earth to be a poor choice for a new home, but a home, nonetheless. When three brilliant college students inadvertently stumbled on a formula that enhanced the Mors' ability to communicate and grow at an incredible rate, the race was on to reverse what had been done before all of life was destroyed.

David flipped off the shroud and stared down at the mess for a moment. "Sam, I need you to do me a favor," he said.

"Um, sure. Okay."

"I need you to go upstairs."

Sam shuffled his feet. "Well, being this is my lab and all, I'd rather stay if it's all the same to you."

David Wyatt turned around and Sam could see the man had removed the glove from his left hand. It had an eerie little glow to it and appeared to be a whitish, fleshy color.

"No, it isn’t the same to me.”

$50 Amazon gift card and paranormal romance author Katherine Eddinger Smits

What happens when you fall in love... against law?

Katherine Eddinger Smits grew up in Tarpon Springs, Florida. Although not from a Greek background, she fell in love with the Greek culture of the town and its close-knit families.

Katherine started writing stories in grade school and always intended to write novels someday. However, she put off writing fiction while she raised her family and worked as a clinical social worker at four different Veterans Affairs Medical Centers around the country. She's also found helping veterans and their families fulfilling while managing to squeeze writing into her life.


Water Dreams, Katherine's debut novel, is a paranormal romance set in Tarpon Springs, Florida and is the first book in the Love's Siren Song series. It was an award-winning finalist in the Fiction/Romance category of the 2016 Best Books contest.

  • Nik—an outwardly normal, young woman terrified by water, living in the Greek-American town of Tarpon Springs, Florida.
  • Bas—a shapeshifter merman tasked with obtaining Nik’s help to gain what his species most desires.
  • The Nerei—a race of beings who want humans to continue to believe they are mythological.

What happens when Nik refuses to help Bas and the Nerei? How will Nik and Bas save each other when they fall in love, against his species laws?

Nik opened her mouth to scream. Like in her dreams of drowning, only a whisper emerged. She grasped the arm of a young woman, one of an interesting trio standing beside her.

“The last boy didn't come up. See the bubbles?”

The young woman met Nik's eyes, then shifted her gaze to the area where Nik pointed.

Without a single word, she took a breath and dived into the water, right from the sidewalk. Weird, but hurrah for quick action.

Silt clouded the bayou where the divers stirred it up. It obscured Nik's vision. She peered at the spots where the young woman went in and where the boy's bubbles came up. She saw him, struggling to free his leg from submerged tree limbs. His efforts slowed, even as the seconds ticked on. She held her breath.

$50 Amazon gift card and paranormal romance author Dawné Dominique

Prepare to be hooked into a mystical world...

Dawné Dominique is a professional graphic artist and owns and operates DusktilDawn Designs. She believes all authors, whether best-sellers or not, deserve affordable, professional cover art.

She also writers under the pen name, D Thomas Jerlo. These novels inexplicably draw readers deep into mystical worlds where mage’ic rules and battles between good and evil are forever constant. Blending reality and illusion that leave indelible impacts on her readers, her books are riveted to the spellbinding plots and unforgettable characters.


As a best-selling and award nominated author of fantasy and paranormal, D. Thomas Jerlo's HellHound Bound hooks unsuspecting readers.

It’s a helluva job, but someone has to do it, and for Rhune it’s a small price to pay for his past sins. He’s taken a new name and a somewhat normal life, except at night when he transforms into a hellhound to take souls to the City of the Dead for purgatories legions to deliver them to Hell.

For fifteen centuries he’s lived in happy solitude until Hanna, a paralegal with the most amazing eyes, rear ends him in the small town of Rio Morden. He’s seen those eyes before, but it’s been years since the last time. Now she’s all grown up and involved in a murder trial that has its sights set on her becoming its next victim.

What’s a hellhound to do? Surely not fall in love—and certainly not with a Dreamwalker. And is that all she is? Mix in a diabolical lawyer and his lover, some Voodoo magic, and it’s a recipe for mayhem and murder.

Can Rhune keep Hanna safe, or is she destined to be Hellhound Bound?

$40 Amazon gift card and the return of romance author Claire Marti

If you enjoy fresh, sexy beach reads, then join me in welcoming Claire Marti back to the blog!

Claire started writing stories as soon as she was old enough to pick up pencil and paper. After graduating from the University of Virginia with a BA in English Literature, she was sidetracked by other careers, including practicing law, selling software for legal publishers, and managing a non-profit animal rescue for a Hollywood actress.


Claire's award winning debut novel, Second Chance in Laguna, won best unpublished contemporary romance in the Heart of the Molly and third place in the Maggie and was a Finalist for Best Contemporary Romance in the Stiletto Contest.

Claire has a contemporary, self-assured style to her writing and character development. Her characters are smart, independent, and quick-witted. You'll enjoy reading about them immediately, getting drawn into wanting to get to know them. Second Chance in Laguna has garnered major praise and is available now!

When Sophie Barnes’s fiancé jilts her at the altar, her carefully planned life implodes. Considering her ex’s betrayal to be a rude wake-up call, she leaves everything she knows in San Diego and flees to Laguna Beach. She vows to transform her life by avoiding men for a year and by fulfilling her dream of writing a wildly successful novel.

Sophie’s new landlord, Nicholas Morgan, is a gorgeous, successful architect with a player reputation. He makes it tough for Sophie to remember that she’s sworn to be single. Nick’s avoided the intimacy of a long-term relationship--until Sophie’s independence, courage, and beauty touch his guarded heart. Both Sophie and Nick are terrified of being hurt again, but can they resist the pull of true love?


Still curious about the author? Here are a few questions from my previous interview with Claire...

What inspires you to write?
I love telling stories and if I can provide an escape for readers from their daily life, I'm happy!

How long does it take you to write a book, on average?
I would say 4-6 months. My books are contemporary romances and the first three are @50k words.

What's the best writing tip you can offer?
Make yourself sit in the chair for a specific amount of time, regardless if you are feeling inspired. Writing requires so much discipline and getting into the habit of doing it on a regular schedule. It's easy to give up, but keep going!

Amazon gift card and historical author JDR Hawkins

JDR Hawkins is an award-winning author who has written for newspapers, magazines, newsletters, e-zines, and blogs. She's one of only a few female Civil War authors, and uniquely describes the front lines from a Confederate perspective.

A Rebel Among Us is the third book in JDR's Renegade series, and recipient of the 2017 John Esten Cooke Fiction Award.


In A Rebel Among Us, David Summers enlists with the Confederate cavalry and his delusion of chivalry is soon crushed when he witnesses the horrors of battle.

Shot by a Union picket, he winds up at a stranger’s farm. Four girls compassionately nurse him back to health. David learns his comrades have deserted him in Pennsylvania following the Battle of Gettysburg, but his dilemma becomes much worse.

He falls in love with the older sister, Anna, who entices him with a proposition. To his dismay, he must make a decision. Should he stay and help Anna with her underhanded plan, or return to the army and risk capture?

She glanced at Maggie and back down at the soldier. Dust and specks of blood covered his anguished face. Sweat and tears had trickled down, leaving tiny trails along his cheeks and temples. Anna’s heart grew heavy at the sight, but she resolved to save him. Her pity gave her power. She knew what she had to do, so she mustered her own authority.

“I’m sorry I don’t have anything to give you for the pain,” she said sympathetically. “I only wish we had some laudanum or chloroform.” She walked over to the black kettle, used the prongs to extract the needles and knife from the scalding hot water, and proceeded to thread a needle.

“Abigail,” she said, “please fetch Father’s good bourbon.”
Her little sister ran downstairs, followed by Claudia.


So who wants to win something?!

JDR Hawkins and I have partnered up to give away a couple items - one lucky Giveaway Guy reader will win a paperback of A Rebel Among Us and another reader will win a $20 Amazon gift card.

$50 Amazon gift card and PTL Perrin's TETRASPHERE Series

You might remember P.T.L. Perrin from this time last year on my blog.


There are more mysteries in this world than you can dream of. How did these things, these creatures get here? Who made them, or how did they evolve? Questions like these have plagued Perrin since childhood, and it’s only recently that she has felt the nod from our Creator to explore them in writing.

She's writing books that she would have loved reading when her family didn’t have television. She wrote the TetraSphere series as pure entertainment and as a way to answer some of the unanswerable questions about our universe, and now the series is complete!


“Storm, wake up.” My sister’s voice sounds pale and blurred, the way an out-of-focus old photograph looks. “Wake up! You’re destroying your room!”

She’s right. The tossed books and toppled dresser come into focus as the nightmare’s grip loosens. I force myself to sit up and take deep breaths until the bed stops shuddering. The dresser rights itself and my books and lamp float back into place. Juliana is busy clearing the mess, mumbling something about brothers under her breath.

I don’t dream. At least I didn’t until I had the nightmare in Peru where I lost Sky to some wicked-looking giants. She somehow shared the dream, and it happened exactly the way we saw it.

This nightmare was worse. Sitting up, I push the covers off and open the curtain, letting the sun’s heat thaw the icy glaze of fear squeezing my heart. Juliana taps her wristband.

What was that about? Her voice in my head sounds more worried than annoyed.

Pick up Terra's Anthem, book #4 in the TetraSphere series, and let us know if you enjoy reading it!



So who wants to start the new year with some cash?!

To celebrate the completion of her TetraSphere series, P.T.L. Perrin and I have partnered up to give away a $50 Amazon gift card to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.


Enter to win using the Rafflecopter form below. By entering, you agree to have your name & email address added to author PTL Perrin's mailing list at the end of the giveaway. You may unsubscribe at any time.
