My First Ever Blog Hop

I know I usually talk about mom stuff on Mondays, but I couldn't pass up this really fun blog hop and since I've never run one before, this is a new experience. Like parenting. Everything is a new experience when you're a parent. (See how sneakily I made the mom connection right there?)

Anyway, introducing my first ever blog hop! I hope you participate. I think it's going to be fun.

Welcome to the Awesome August Blog Hop, where bloggers from all over the Internet have come together to throw a summertime party!

Every blog on this hop is offering a fun prize, and entering is quick and easy. Simply follow the instructions on each blog, leave a comment, and bop right along to the next blog. You can win multiple times, so be sure to check out all the participating blogs!

On my blog, you can win a signed copy of my new novel Ribbon of Darkness. You know you want it. :)

To enter:

1. Become a follower of my blog.

2. Look in the mirror and tell yourself you are an amazing person. Really. You'll feel so much better if you do. Writers and readers should do that every day because writers need the reinforcement after critiques and reviews, and readers should do it just to get their nose out of a book. :) Then, go here and like my book page.

3. Leave me a comment and tell me that you've done those things. If your e-mail isn't available through your profile, I'll need you to leave that, too - I can't tell you if you've won if I can't contact you!

This blog hop runs through Wednesday night at midnight, so be sure to enter before then! The winner will be notified by e-mail.

Now that you've entered my contest, come meet all my other blog friends and see what fun things they are offering!

I have done it all! Became a GFC follower, Liked you on Amazon, liked you on FaceBook, and even stood in front of the mirror telling myself what a great person I am. My image laughed at me(sob). Seriously, you are right. Everyone needs to know they are good people and they should be proud of themselves.
