Book Chick Top 15 imageThere I am on a Best of 2014 list with one of my very favorite authors, Kristen Ashley. Me and the Rock Chicks on the same list (squeeee!)

Speaking of great books, with the new year comes a new Reading Challenge. Since I read 149 books in 2013 (not including the many novellas) and since my challenge was only 100, I decided to up it this year to 150 books. Fingers crossed, because I have a full writing schedule this year. The challenge is on GoodReads (since I figured out how to be sure they “see” all of the books I read) and you can follow my progress HERE. I’ll be adding my final 2013 books to last year’s list, and posting the new challenge list later this week.

And now to the good stuff … four winners were chosen this week, all at random. All of the winners have been notified and have already responded to claim their prizes. (Yay!) First up was the one-day giveaway hosted by LITERAL ADDICTION during the blog tour, and the winner of that giveaway (a copy of ADEN print or e) is …

Next are the three winners, a Grand Prize winner and two runners up from the ADEN Blog Tour Rafflecopter. We had thousands of entries, so thanks to everyone who tweeted, posted, blogged … and whatever else you did to help get the word out about ADEN. The winners were as follows:

Grand Prize of Autographed copy of both HUNTED and ADEN (or e if preferred) plus a US$30 gift certificate


Two Runner-Up Prizes of Autographed copies of HUNTED and ADEN (or e if preferred)

Congratulations to all the winners and thank you to all of my readers and the many bloggers who participated.

JustifiedAnd finally, lots of television debuts this week, new series starting and old series returning with new episodes. But none of them is more exciting to yours truly than my favorite Federal Marshal Raylan Givens! Woohoo! Raylan is back starting this Tuesday! I canNOT wait!

I didn’t see any new movies this week. I’ve been too busy with other stuff, including the new Cyn & Raphael novella and VINCENT! Yes, the holidays are over over over, and it’s back to routine. Not that spending time with my beautiful guys is exactly a hardship. 🙂

Have a terrific week, and stay warm and safe, especially those of you in the polar vortex zone!
