$100 Amazon gift card with fitness enthusiast Diana Anderson-Tyler

It's time to work off that winter weight! Diana Anderson-Tyler is back on the blog to help you become stronger in body, soul, and spirit.

As a fitness, faith, and entertainment writer, Diana is an author of four non-fiction books for Christian women. She's combined her passion for helping others with the power of the written word, and prays hearts are touched, imaginations kindled, dreams awakened, and lives inspired by the stories she tells.

Diana's writing has made the beautiful transition from hobby to profession, from curiosity to obsession, from amusement to craft, from passion to purpose.


If you need some motivation, Perfect Fit is all about weekly wisdom and workouts for women of faith and fitness. In this devotional/workout book, you'll soon understand that to improve our heart health and prevent the risk of heart disease and stroke, the American Heart Association recommends we get at least two hours of moderate exercise (or just 75 minutes of vigorous exercise) each week.

Do you like working out with your significant other? Diana has a sequel to Perfect Fit that draws from Scripture and personal experiences from her own marriage in Perfect Fit: Couples Edition, inspiring, encouraging, and challenging couples to become stronger together in body, soul, and spirit.

As ungodly depictions of beauty and carnal portraits of wellness saturate our society, young women are falling prey to secular notions of health and fitness by failing to view and treat their bodies from a Christ-centered perspective.

Perfect Fit reveals and elucidates relevant biblical truths, presents powerful, heartfelt testimonies, and demonstrates fun, effective workouts that inspire women to embrace and exemplify God’s best for our bodies.


Need some advice and motivation from the author? Here are a few interview questions with Diana from last time to get your butt in gear...

How often should I be working out?
This really depends on the individual. For example, if someone's just starting out in their fitness journey, I recommend 2-3 times per week so they're not overwhelmed...or overly sore! After a couple months, they can add a day or two. Ultimately, I recommend that people try to work out five days a week, even six if they're crazy like me and genuinely love it!

What should I do if I only have 30 minutes to work out?
If you're short on time, I recommend doing a high-intensity form of exercise, such as interval or circuit training as these ensure you're getting a lot in in not a lot of time. There are literally dozens of ways to train at a high intensity, and with the power of the Internet, it's easy to access excellent workouts along with instructional photos and videos.

Here's just one example of a 15-minute workout you can do in your living room:

Set a timer for 15 minutes and perform as many rounds of the following as possible:

10 push-ups
15 air squats
20 alternating lunges
25 jumping jacks


Should I train before or after work?
The best time to train is when it works best for you! If you find that you're low on energy at the end of the workday, try working out first thing in the morning. Conversely, if you're not a morning person, head straight to the gym after work, or during your lunch break. Just don't go home first if you can help it; it's hard to head back out once you're on the couch!

$40 Amazon gift card and the return of romance author Kandi Steiner

You might recognize the face of this returning author. Welcome back to the blog, Kandi Steiner!

Kandi 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.

What He Never Knew is her latest release, a standalone teacher/student romance in the What He Doesn't Know series. Get it on Amazon and Kindle Unlimited.

I never learn my lesson.

And I always want what I can’t have.

When Sarah Henderson walks into my life, I tell myself she’s off limits. She’s my student, sixteen years younger than me, and my boss’s niece. It doesn’t matter that I see the same pain reflected in her eyes that I have in my own, or that the dead organ better known as my heart kicks to life when she’s around.

I’ve been here before, and I know how this ends.

It’s been two years since I fell for the last woman I knew I couldn’t have, the one with the ring on her finger that I chose to ignore.

Two years of trying to overcome that heartache when Sarah slides into my life.

Another woman I can’t have. Another woman I can’t stop myself from wanting.

I never learn my lesson, but with a constant reminder of how that last forbidden love burned, I think I’ve finally learned this one.

This time, I won’t chase what’s off limits.

This time, I’m staying away.

And I’ll keep telling myself that until I believe it.


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

$50 Amazon gift card and the return of author Charity Bradford

Welcome back to the blog, Charity Bradford! The best rule for writing is to follow your heart.

In high school, Charity started writing stories but never managed to finish a full length novel. A year before graduating at Brigham Young University, she married her high school sweetheart and started a family.


Having lived more life, suffered heart ache and a near death experience, Charity decided it was time to make that dream of becoming a published author a reality. She started writing and entered the blogging community to learn all she could about the craft and industry.

Charity also has a romance pen name, River Ford. She's always loved the sweet Hallmark movies. One day she fell in love with the characters she created to live in Eureka Springs, AR. They were real with problems she could understand.


The Hand of Atua is Charity's latest release, a space opera for young adults. A prince, the daughter of his teacher, multiple planets, refugees, and a god waiting for a boy to grow into a man with the faith to change the galaxy. Heartache and hope, fear and love, the living and the dead are all in Atua’s hands.

Eighteen-year-old Amiran wants to forget he's the Hatana's son. Unfortunately, his father's fleet is marching across the galaxy. Planets have fallen and now they're heading for Manawa. There's nothing there the Hatana wants, no reason for him to spare the planet. The only reason to attack is to send Amiran a message—pick up your duty as heir or lose everything you love.

Determined to save as many as possible, Amiran calls for a planet-wide exodus. When his favorite professor refuses to leave, Amiran puts the professor's daughter, Eleena, on the escape shuttle instead. Before he can convince her father to leave Manawa, Amiran is captured by the Hatana's scouts. Sentenced to serve in the mines and then the fleet he hates, Amiran fears he'll never find a way to stop his father's tyranny. Beaten regularly to the brink of death, Am takes solace in dreams about Eleena. As time passes, he draws strength from the knowledge she is alive and surviving in the refugee camps the best she can.

As his feelings deepen, Amiran knows that to keep Eleena truly safe, he must put an end to the brutality of the fleet. Only then will he be able to reunite with the woman he's grown to love.


So who wants to win something?!

In celebration of the release of The Hand of Atua, Charity Bradford and I have partnered up to give away a $50 Amazon gift card to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

$50 Amazon gift card and a Spring return of fantasy author Lucia Ashta

Step into Springtime and otherworldly fiction with the return of author Lucia Ashta!

Lucia has always been a writer. She published a short story about an unusual cockatoo when she was eight years old. Wow, what was I doing at eight? Certainly not writing any books, and probably sorting my trading cards...


That story about a cockatoo was the first of many stories, poetic anthologies, and novels to follow. Lucia never stopped writing, though she went through a long phase believing she needed to be a “responsible adult” and that writing didn’t meet that standard.

It is Lucia's greatest hope that her work will make your life more magical. She wishes that we may all learn how to make our own version of the impossible possible.

Siren Magic is the first book in the new Sirangel series. As a hybrid shapeshifter—half siren, half angel—Selene of the Kunu Clan is one of a kind.


It’s a label that makes her the target of a rebel faction of supernatural creatures that seeks to claim her power.

But her power is undeveloped and more a danger to herself than an aid. Yet her magic is her only advantage over the vicious vampires and fierce shifters who seek to eliminate her.

Soon Selene is on the run in an unfamiliar world and unable to return to her ocean home. At least she’s not alone. Quinn, a shifter with his own secrets, has her back. Selene and Quinn must find a way to escape those that hunt them while surviving their unstable powers.

But can Quinn help her stop vampires and shifters who’ve had centuries to master their abilities?


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

In celebration of the release of the Sirangel series, Lucia Ashta and I have partnered up to give away a $50 Amazon gift card to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader!

Amazon gift card and thriller author K.T. Rose

This next author has been featured on the blog before, but under the pen name Kyla Ross.

Welcome back, K.T. Rose!

K.T. 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.


K.T. is also the author of the thriller novel titled Netted, released this month.

Welcome to The Silent Red Room, where your imagination is only a Bitcoin away.

When Dale uses a dating app to get over his ex, he connects with Marla, a beautiful eccentric. All is well and good…until they meet in person.

Meanwhile, Jessica, a troubled teen, takes to surfing the darknet to fulfill her ever-growing curiosity. Within its labyrinthine vastness, she discovers Father Paul, a sinister figure who uses creative methods of torture to please his rich audience. Her dreams of meeting her hero soon come true, but not in the way she hoped.

Will Dale and Jessica survive when they’re pulled into the cyber mass known as the darknet? Or are they already lost to The Silent Red Room, a horrific place amongst the darknet's web of horrors?

The Silent Red Room, making the underbelly of the internet a better place, one missing person at a time.

And if you're into erotica, here are a few questions from last time with K.T...

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.



So who wants to win something?!

In celebration of the release of Netted, K.T. Rose and I have partnered up to give away a $20 Amazon gift card to lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

Win a $100 Amazon gift card with author Case Lane!

Are you the type that prepares for the future? Join me in welcoming Case Lane back to the blog!

Case is a global writer, traveler, entrepreneur, and observer to the future. Her overall theme for writing and entrepreneurship is 'prepare for the future.' In her thought-provoking Life Online book series the majority of people are non-technologists who have to learn to live and manage in a technology-controlled world they do not understand. Case envisions a next century world where the essential battle is between the advancement of technology and the instincts of our basic humanity.

Educated in communications, political science, business, law and economics, Case has lived and worked all over the world, and has been a reporter, diplomat, digital media corporate executive and lawyer. You can find all these influences from her knowledge and experience in the books.


The Life Online Book Series is speculative science fiction for thinking people considering the impact of future technologies. Book #2, The Unbroken Line, is a future tech cyber thriller.

BEYOND THE TIES OF OUR COMMON KINDRED can a digital human be controlling an act of war?

In the near future, the dead live on as virtual holograms interacting with humans through an omnipresent cyber Network. But when undetectable drones suddenly change the outcome of government policies, digital humans become criminal suspects.

The Unbroken Line is a future tech cyber thriller highlighting the battle between the disturbing consequences of humanity’s dependence on programmed machines, and the visionary benefits of the technology. The artificial intelligence providing ongoing contact with the departed could be instigating a terrifying military stand-off between the USA and Russia.

In The Unbroken Line, the war in Cyberspace goes to the edges of the Universe. To prevent a world ending outcome, a global team of diplomats, Intelligence agents and rogue technologists must reverse engineer the error, and avert a war threatening to shatter the stable unity maintained in a world of cyber control.

Care to get to go inside the author's mind? Here are a few interview questions with Case from last time.

What inspires you to write?
I have stories in my head, I always have. And my writing is related to my own experiences and interests. What usually happens is I will start thinking of a scenario. For example, right now there is a lot of discussion about self-driving cars. What about airplanes? Could we get to the point where planes operate without pilots? That led to the premise of my next book in the Life Online series about a plane that goes off the grid. Once I have the general idea I can start writing. At that point, the inspiration is in wanting to get the story completed and out for distribution.

How long does it take you to write a book, on average?
Once I have the story decided and I know when I want to release the book, I set a deadline. When I'm actively writing to hit a deadline, I aim for 5,000 words a day. So the length of time depends on the length of the book. The Life Online books average around 115,000 words each, so about 23 days. But that said, I can edit and re-edit forever. If I do not set deadlines I will keep re-editing, not to change the basic story, but certainly to reset dialogue, or change scenes around. I cannot read my own writing without editing. So without deadlines, I would probably still be working on my first book.

What's the best writing tip you can offer?
Keep writing. Be persistent. Keep at it. I know many people want to write a book so I recommend that you start immediately and write a few words every day until it's done. Because of technology and the ability to access a global market of readers, anyone can publish a book and find enthusiastic readers. And there's a great variety of styles and approaches that people can use. What hasn't changed is the readers' interest in good stories. So don't worry about technique or style or market size or any of that - just get the story together and finish the writing you started.

So who wants to win something?!

$40 Amazon gift card and the return of thriller author Luana Ehrlich

Ready for a thrill? Welcome back to the blog, Luana Ehrlich!

Luana is an award-winning author, minister's wife, and former missionary with a passion for spy thrillers and mystery novels. She began writing the Titus Ray Thriller Series when her husband retired from the pastorate.

Now Luana writes from an undisclosed location (I like a good mystery), where she tries to avoid the torture of mundane housework, golf stories, and grocery shopping.


One Night in Tehran is the first book in the Titus Ray series. Who is Titus Ray, you ask?

Titus Ray is a veteran CIA covert intelligence officer who's spent most of his career at the Agency assigned to the Middle East desk. During that time, he's been involved in some of America's most clandestine operations, assignments he's taken in order to keep the nation safe from terrorists or from anyone else out to destroy the "land of the free and the home of the brave."

Learning the truth...
Veteran CIA officer Titus Ray--on the run from the Iranian secret police--finds shelter with a group of Iranian Christians in Tehran. While urging Titus to become a believer in Jesus Christ, they manage to smuggle him out of Iran to freedom in Turkey.

Dealing with the past...
Returning to the States, he discovers his Iranian mission failed because of political infighting within the Agency. In a hot-tempered outburst, he delivers a scathing indictment against the Deputy Director of Operations, and, as a result, the deputy forces Titus to take a year's medical leave in Oklahoma.

Facing the future...
Before leaving Langley, Titus learns he's been targeted by a Hezbollah assassin hired by the Iranians. Now, while trying to figure out what it means to be a follower of Christ, he must decide if the Iranian couple he meets in Norman, Oklahoma has ties to the man who's trying to kill him, and if Nikki Saxon, a local detective with an intriguing past, can be trusted with his secrets.


So who wants the chance to win a prize?

Luana Ehrlich and I have partnered up to give away two things - one lucky Giveaway Guy reader will win a $40 Amazon gift card and another winner will get a paperback copy of One Night in Tehran!

Amazon gift card and the return of coauthors Jessica Haight & Stephanie Robinson

Up next is a pair of award-winning coauthors - twice the talent and twice the personality. Welcome back to the blog, Jessica Haight and Stephanie Robinson!

Jessica and Stephanie were award-winning finalists in the 2011 International Book Awards in the Children’s Fiction category and placed 13th in the Children’s Fiction category for the 80th annual Writer’s Digest Writing Competition.

Stephanie Robinson (left) and Jessica Haight

Jessica grew up in New England (like me!). She has a deep love of the ocean and a personal desire to experience the four seasons every year. I'm with her - a change in weather and scenery is a good thing.

Stephanie lives with her husband in a quiet town, though not as quaint as Ashpot. She has been a fifth grade teacher for 10+ years and learns something new everyday. I try to do the same thing, even if it's something that may not be that important.

One of their coauthored books is Fairday Morrow and the Talking Library. 11-year-old Fairday Morrow had no clue that moving from Manhattan to the small town of Ashpot, Connecticut, would lead to an unsolved mystery. Watch the book trailer:


Fairday Morrow had no clue that moving from Manhattan to the small town of Ashpot, Connecticut, would lead to an unsolved mystery.

Her parents’ dream of renovating a crumbling Victorian, called the Begonia House, into a bed and breakfast had seemed like treachery at the time.

But Fairday found out that her new house kept secrets, and once inside its twisted front gates, anything was possible.

When mysterious notes start showing up warning that a librarian is in trouble and a bookworm is eating words, Fairday thinks the Begonia House has more skeletons in its closets.

What happens to stories when their words get eaten?


Still curious about the authors? Here are a few interview questions from last time...

What inspires you to write?
Jess: I love stories. Ideas for plots and characters are all around, in every moment. Thinking about scenes from different perspectives sets my imagination free. Linking ideas and working with words is fun!

Stephanie: I always have stories floating around in my mind. It is so much fun to dive deeper into them and bring them to life. Talking about plots and characters with Jess gets me excited to write and create worlds where anything’s possible.


How long does it take you to write a book, on average?
Jess & Stephanie: To flesh out the story and get it on the pages is about 8-12 months. The editing process will add on about 4 months, so a year to a year and a half would be a good estimate for us to complete a book.

What's the best writing tip you can offer?
Jess: Be yourself. It’s important to love what you’re doing and continue to work because you enjoy the process. If you take your projects seriously and make time for them to flourish, you’ll feel your own sense of validation. It’s important to protect creative time and space and keep up the practice- there is no failure or wrong or right in art, it’s all worthwhile, and your skills will develop as you continue to craft your writing.

Stephanie: Write at your own pace and use a process that works for you. It is easy to look at other writers and compare yourself to them. Some people write fast, some are like me, and the pace is a bit slower. That is okay! I appreciate that there are writers who can sit down and type thousands of words. I tend to nitpick over words and sentences. Learning to be comfortable with your process will allow you to enjoy yourself. Don’t lose sight of why you are writing and don’t worry about the rest. Creating stories is fun!

$50 Amazon gift card and paranormal romance author TK Lawyer

Are you fascinated with the strange and unusual?

A romantic by heart, TK Lawyer also has an interest in the strange and unusual. She had never pictured herself as a writer, but sometime in 2011, craving some kind of excitement and adventure, she jotted down a few notes for a book idea and never looked back. 


TK's notes never became a book, but instead she took on subjects as wolf-shifters and angels, creating their worlds and loving every minute of it.

Jasper is book #1 in TK's The Guardian League series.

Tatiana seeks rare, coveted treasure: a strong, loving, committed male she can respect, be proud of and become her full-fledged partner. She has sought this elusive prince among men, her own personal champion but instead found many, many frogs and quite a few toads. Does her hero exist on Earth, or did she miss her opportunity?

Jasper isn’t seeking a mate. His only intention is to rescue Tatiana from a fatal car accident, but he finds himself drawn to her in ways he can’t explain. She’s a rare, precious gem and there’s no turning back for him. He must know her and introduce himself in some sort of “human” fashion, at some sort of “human” event, for he is not of Earth.

Once Tatiana finds out Jasper’s true identity, will she accept and trust him? Will Tatiana allow herself to enter into a permanent, loving relationship with an unearthly but powerful being who only wants to adore and protect her?


So who wants to win something?!

TK Lawyer and I have partnered up to give away a $50 Amazon gift card to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

$60 Amazon gift card & Diana Anderson-Tyler's Petros Chronicles

This author is one of my favorite guests, blending ancient myth and modern culture. Join me in welcoming Diana Anderson-Tyler back to the blog!

Diana's writing journey has proved much more than a transient phase. If you're anything like her, then you've likely discovered that pursuing your passion as an adult is no longer like playing in a sandbox.

Congrats on the release of The Petros Chronicles box set, Diana!


Gone are the care-free, easy-going days of simply devising clever stories or thinking up unique characters and hastily following after them with your pen. Diana's writing has made the beautiful transition from hobby to profession, from curiosity to obsession, from amusement to craft, from passion to purpose.

Diana has come to believe that writers are also warriors. Many giants must be slayed as we strive to share our stories with the world. Many invaders must be routed as we defend the work whose characters, settings, conflicts, and themes keep us up at night.

The Petros Chronicles includes the following books:
  • Moonbow (prequel)
  • Age of the Ashers
  • War of the Ashers
  • Fate of the Ashers

Join Chloe on a quest to discover the long-buried secrets of her family's past, make friends and foes with beings she once thought purely mythical, and do battle against ancient gods before they destroy her kind and take over the world.


So who wants to win something?!

To celebrate the release of The Petros Chronicles box set, Diana Anderson-Tyler and I have partnered up to give away a $60 Amazon gift card to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.
