New Sponsor & a Giveaway!!

March 10, 2012


I’ve changed a few things around on the blog lately so you may or may not have noticed I have my first Sponsor! Author Diane Reed is sharing her newly-released book, Twixt.


Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day:
A Magical Irish Romance!
Twixt is an epic tale about a love so powerful
that not even the sweep of time can tear it apart…

Everyone in Ophir Creek, Idaho knows the wild legend of Corvine O’Dannan, a mysterious Irish woman with “fairy powers” who came to town during the gold rush to find her fortune, only to be betrayed by her lover and meet a tragic end—

Fast forward to the twenty-first century, and her descendent Rose doesn’t have time for such nonsense! After a crash-and-burn marriage, she’s returned to her hometown to renovate her father’s gold-panning business and to start over. But everything changes on her 30th birthday when her friend talks her into doing a love spell. Unbeknownst to them, they conjure the spirit of the very same man who once tormented Rose’s ancestor. Why? Because Rose was Corvine O’Dannan in a past life—and her really bad habit of attracting Mr. Wrong still haunts her, and now jeopardizes her life.

What Rose doesn’t realize is that along with this dark curse comes an extraordinary blessing—in the form of a soul guardian named Chance Murphy who’s been protecting her for centuries. But this time around, the evil spirit that now plagues Rose has stolen Chance’s body. So the only way that Chance can reach her is late at night in her dreams, when he appears as a magical raven who escorts her to an enchanted island off the coast of Ireland. There, Chance becomes a man again, and he shows Rose how she can heal her past through the fairies’ special brand of magic. But will Rose finally be able to forge a new future and make the man of her dreams become real? Only if she can once again believe . . .


The author, Diane Reed, is actually a family friend and I’m so thrilled and honored that she asked to sponsor my blog with her amazing first book! It’s pretty awesome to say I know someone who has written a book–and even cooler that my Mom is thanked on the acknowledgements page!

But the best part is that Diane has sent me FIVE COPIES, all autographed, to give away to 5 lucky readers!

Trust me, you don’t want to miss out on this beautifully written book. It’s a great love story that transcends time and leaves your heart wanting more. I wish I could give copies to everyone so you could all experience the magic of it. To enter for a chance to win an autographed copy of Twixt, simply leave me a comment on this post! I’ll draw the winners next Saturday, March 17th. What a great way to celebrate St Patrick’s Day!

And if you just can’t wait to get your hands on a copy, you can get one today at one of the following retailers: & & as an ebook at Kindle, Nook, iBooks & Kobo.

    BIG CONGRATULATIONS to Amber, Trixie, Mariah, Heather, and Barbara for winning the paperback copies of my novel TWIXT!! What some of you may not know is that Melissa’s mother Marcia taught me how to sew–and since she is a master quilter, I included a magical quilt in the novel in her honor and thanked her in my Acknowledgements page in the book. So for those of you who love to sew, who knows what magical journeys can happen through your stitching… ; )

    I sincerely hope you enjoy TWIXT, and I’d like to say a HUGE THANK YOU to Melissa for doing this contest! Her website is so beautiful and I’m deeply honored that she featured my novel on her blog! : ) ~Diane J. Reed
