Blog Award & Random Swag Giveaway!

One of the many guilt trips I feel virtually every day of my life is that I don’t properly keep up with my blog. And now that I’m back to school, I’m REALLY not keeping up with my blog. So it was a wonderful surprise when fellow writer, Blaire Kensley, chose me as one of her brilliant blogger picks. Thanks, Blaire!!! By the way, Blaire is a lovely person and the author of the CREED series, which you can check out by visiting her blog: http://blairekensley.blogspot.com/

I absolutely love the idea of passing on the blogger love, so in keeping with the rules of the blog award, I plan to:
1. Thank and link to the person who nominated me. (see above)
2. Share seven random facts about myself. (see below)
3. Pass the award along to 5 newfound blogging buddies.
4. Contact those buddies to congratulate them.

And so, here are Seven Random Facts about me:
1. The game Monopoly makes me crazy-competitive. My husband refuses to play with me anymore.
2. I hate shopping unless it’s for books.
3. I'm absolutely phobic about needles; I haven’t had blood drawn in seven years.
4. I am an unapologetic fan of both Doctor Who and The Vampire Diaries, which must make me some sort of pop culture anomaly.
5. According to my husband, I make the best scrambled eggs in the world.
6. One of my deepest disappointments in life is that I can’t sing.
7. I can, however, do a mean moonwalk. You can imagine how handy this is in daily life.

Okay, now for my 5 brilliant blogger picks:
1. Danya at A Tapestry of Words
2. Alyssa Goodnight, author of the upcoming AUSTEN-TATIOUS
3. Both Amandas at Short and Sweet
5. Angel at Mermaid Visions

And to celebrate this little blog lovefest, I am giving away signed cover flats for A BREATH OF EYRE to 3 commenters, each personalized with a preview line from my book. I'll also throw in a few bookmarks! Please comment by Tuesday, September 20th by midnight EST. Contest open to U.S. and Canadian residents.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and happy blogging!

Thanks so much for passing the award on to me, Eve! And ugh, I am completely with you hating needles. *shudders*

Also this is the first I've heard of Austen-tatious, so thanks for putting it on my radar - it looks super fun!

If the giveaway's open to Canada, I'd love to be entered :)

Angel @ Mermaid Vision Books said...

I am an unapologetic fan of both Doctor Who and The Vampire Diaries, which must make me some sort of pop culture anomaly.

*waves happily from that particular pop culture corner*

And thank you for the giftie! I'll be sure to pass it on after I recover from the grueling three days I just had. :)

Angel Snyder said...

So jealous about you being able to moonwalk! *pouts*
Haha, when I read the name 'Angel', I thought you were talking about me for a moment there! :P
And who doesn't love Doctor Who and TVD?!

Rachel said...

Thanks Eve for the giveaway! I am really looking forward to reading your book. Have a great day!


Traxy said...

I'm crazy competitive at Monopoly, too. I can't play with anyone under 10, because I hate letting them win! Lol. I'm off to check out these blogs you've mentioned. :)

Thanks for the awesome giveaway! Such a fun idea.

Alyssa Goodnight said...

Thank you so much, Eve! Are those cover shots for the rest of the trilogy on the back of Breath of Eyre??

Katherine Longshore said...

You know, Eve, the English royal family isn't allowed to play Monopoly with each other for the same reason, so you're in good company!

Erica said...

I reallly should check out Doctor Who and catch up on The Vampire Diaries :)

I would absolutely love to enter!

Heather Anastasiu said...
