Darker Temptations Relaunch: Secrets, Surprises and #Giveaways

As you may have noticed, Darker Temptations has been undergoing some changes.  Its time for a relaunch.

So what’s new?  We’ll still be blogging a common theme every two weeks, two themes per month. But not daily and with a leaner team of bloggers.  Now we’ll be here every Tuesday and Thursday, blogging on paranormal and science fiction mysteries, romance, evil doers and much, much more.  We may even write an original story or two.  And it starts now!  With a party.  Come join us for…

At most great parties, secrets are spilled.  And this is a great party, so we’ll share our secrets for the first theme. Each one of us–Marcella Burnard, Tina Christopher, Sabrina Garie and Viki Lyn–will reveal one secret about ourselves in our post. It can be anything. And we mean anything.

Don’t feel left out. We’d love for you to share your secrets with us. We won’t tell. 😉  Shy?  No problem, just  share your insights on our secrets.  We’re offering incentives.

Surprise Giveaways

At the end of our two weeks of secrets, they’ll be an author gift basket giveaway.  Each author gets to choose from one of the following three items to put in the basket:  1) an ebook; 2) a print book; or 3) a gift card.  We aren’t telling. Secrets, remember?  So the winner will receive four surprise prizes.

How do you win?

Easy. Comment on the blog post of our authors.  All commenters will be assigned a number and entered into a raffle. A winner will be chosen with, which selects numbers at–you guessed it–random.  You can increase your chances of winning by commenting on several authors’ posts. There are four of us, so if you comment on all four of our blog posts, we will assign you four number in the raffle. If you comment on just three, then you’ll be assigned three numbers, and so forth.

Come and join the fun.  What’s your secret?


Happy Holiday Season – Where are my Keys?

Like a werewolf, sometimes I take on more than I can chew.  🙂  It’s the holiday season, and have I started to shop?  NOPE.  My mom and sisters are finished shopping – and we have a huge family.  When I say finished, I mean everything is wrapped and under the trees.

I worked at the college yesterday, went to a bball practice afterwards, then a charity auction for a Board I’m on…when I got home, our tree was up!  Yes, it’s something I like to be a part of, but this year, I was thrilled my hubby and the kids took care of it.  LOVE them!

Finals are next week, the holiday parties are starting, and did I mention I have a book due on February 1st?  I say all of that with a huge smile on my face.  Being busy makes me happy.  Scrambling around, trying to find my schedule, just tickles me.  Yeah, I’m odd.

But when I get away from reality, I can escape into whatever book I’m either writing or reading.  That world can be as organized as I want.  Of course, if you’ve read my books, my characters don’t seemed to get a break, either. 

So let me ask you this:  How are you doing this holiday season?  Are you super organized and ready to rumble (much like the king of the vampires)?  Or are you rushing around trying to find your car keys (much like me)?   Leave a comment and get entered in the contest for a kindle and our books!
