First up, All Romance eBooks is holding a Hottest Hero contest, and Benjamin from Brook Street: Thief is in the running. The contest starts with 32 heroes and spans 5 rounds, with pairs of heroes going up against each other in each round. Plus, a random voter in each round will win a $25 gift cert from ARe. Round 1 is open from Aug 1 - 7, so if you're in the mood to cast a vote (you'll need to log into your account at ARe to vote), stop on by ARe to vote for the summer's hottest hero.
In other contest news, Chris over at Stumbling Over Chaos is holding a giveaway for a copy of The Bound Series in paperback. To throw your name in the virtual hat, stop on by Stumbling Over Chaos. In other Bound Series news, the paperback book should be released by this weekend. Then it will take another few weeks before it makes its way to Barnes and Noble. Oh, and Oliver looks mighty find in print, if I do say so myself. Been petting him while I've been proofing the book. He's very sleek and shiny ;)
Last week, I was out of town on the annual family vacation to the beach. Wonderful vacation, with lots of time spent in the shade since I go from pale to sunburned in the blink of an eye. Of course, I couldn't resist visiting this restaurant. I even bought t-shirts. Got hubby a 'You're gonna love my weiner' shirt, and I got a 'Hot, fresh & tasty' shirt. I just love the Capt'n Weiner dude - he's so cute!
It took a few days to watch the sun actually set over the lake (clouds kept rolling in right around 9pm, thwarting my attempts), but the clouds finally cooperated and I was able to get some good pics.
