DeAnna, I’ll email you shortly to coordinate the prize fulfillment.

Welcome to the Evernight Holiday Blog Hop!

We love the holidays, we love making our readers happy and we love giving away swag. What better way to do that than to hold a blog hop?

Here’s how it works… between now and the 14th, the more blogs you hop to (shown below–use the Linky list link) the more chances you have of winning prizes. Each site on the hop is offering a prize and the hop’s host, Evernight is offering:

An iPad 2 as the grand prize!

To earn a chance to win the Grand prize AND the prizes I am offering, simply follow my blog (via email) and leave a comment which includes your email address.

The more entries you have, the better your chances of winning that iPad 2! You’ll also get extra points for liking the Evernight Facebook page. Just make sure you let me know in the comments that you’ve done so.

On my stop, I’m offering a two-book dealio–one to enjoy (or gift) now and one to enjoy after the holidays. Book One is your choice of EITHER Vanilla-Free Christmas anthology, just released last week, or Stockings and Suspenders anthology (2011 release). Book two is a copy of my novelette, Succubus Steam, coming in January. Book two will be hot off the press the night before the official release date, which I don’t have yet other than January something. Sorrys about that, but I won’t be shy about telling you Succubus Steam is one of my favorite Succubus Chronicles of all. I can’t wait to release it! As a matter of fact, to whet your appetite, here’s a little sneak preview with a bit of humor, because I always have to have a couple of chuckles in all my stories.

Violet, a succubus, is our narrator. She lives in Victorian London and is the inventor of an interesting automaton she’s named Adam:

SuccubusSteamTwinsI wake to a pair of deep green eyes staring at me. “Adam?”

A grin blooms on his handsome face. “Adam? Is that what you named him? How biblical of you, Violet.” He straightens and roars with laughter.

On the bed, behind my back, a body stirs to life. I roll over and squeak at the twin of the man I’ve just spoken to. “Adam?”

“Yes, my love,” says the male lying next to me.

“Oh, my God!” I sit bolt upright and cover my breasts with the sheets. Now that the sleep scales have fallen from my eyes and my brain, I understand my situation. “Lyle! How did you get in here?”

“Never mind that, you clever girl. What the deuce have you been making?” A few strides of his long legs carry him to the other side of the bed where Adam lies. “Adam? Is that your name?”

Adam sits and turns to me. “Who is this man, Violet, my dearest?”

Lyle’s eyes grow wider. “Good Lord, he sounds exactly like … me!” He reaches out a hand and pokes Adam in the cheek. “Not nearly as good-looking though.”

“I am not a lord,” Adam tells Lyle gravely, and I can’t help but snicker at the shocked expression on Lyle’s face. “I belong to Violet. By what name shall I address you?”

“You may call me … Lord Cocksucker,” Lyle says mocking my creation.

Good Golly, Miss Molly!! Two of ’em! What-ever will happen next? Comment with your guess. Don’t forget that email address either in the body of your comment or in the comment form.
