Hullabaloos, Blog Chains and Requiem

Happy Wednesday All! Time for another Blog Chain round. Cole started this round and asked the following:

Christmas is a time of gift giving. If you could gift aspiring authors with one piece of advice, what would it be?

Man, this is a great one! For me...it's persistence. There is nothing easy about this business. Nothing. It's more than writing great stories, perfecting the craft and selling your work. It's more than editing and marketing. It is just more. And to achieve your dreams, it takes work, and persistence. LOADS of it!

To hear a little more advice, check out Sandra's from yesterday, and Katrina's post tomorrow.

And since we are talking about gifts and all...It is ALSO TIME FOR TODAY'S #HULLABALOO


We are down the last couple of days of the giveaway, and I really wanted to give all of you something from my collection of items...
But before I get to that, check out ALL of the giveaways today...they just get better and better:



For Hullabaloo Day #10, I am giving away SIGNED COPIES of my Requiem Series, including the hardback for LACRIMOSA, the paperback for LIBERA ME and the paperback for DOMINUS (when it released in 2013). Here are what some people are saying about the series:


"LACRIMOSA reaches out, grabs readers by the heart, and takes them on an emotional journey from the first page to the last. The last novel you'll need to read to understand true sacrifice." ~ Elana Johnson, Author of Possession


"An emotional ride that kept me guessing at every turn, dip, and upside down whirl. This novel will have you gripping your e-reader until your fingers are white. Love, sacrifice, redemption, damnation, hot angels and demons, it has it all and so much more!" - Heather McCorkle, Author of To Ride A Puca
