International Authors’ Day Blog Hop 2016

photo (1)

I’m excited to announce that I’ve joined this awesome blog hop that celebrates authors and readers. Debdatta is hosting this International Author’s Day Blog Hop. She’s a blogger, reviewer, publicist, and virtual assistant. Please check out her blog–b00k r3vi3ws.

The goal is to share our favorite books, thanking the authors and/or describing our reading habits. I choose the latter. Ever since I was a little girl, I could be found curled up in a comfy chair reading a book. This was long before elementary school with rewards of free Pizza Hut after so many books listed from your reading list.

Nowadays, I binge read since I have a kindle and can download affordable ebooks. Occasionally, I still buy paperbacks from Books-A-Million. I love scaring myself, so horror is a must. Plus, I love solving puzzles, which is why I love mysteries. I’m not going to lie–if I’m reading a paperback, I’ll read the last pages first to see who the killer is. It makes the book more enjoyable, knowing this spoiler. 🙂

I love fiction novels, but I also dabble in non-fiction, especially about local ghost legends. In fact, I just went on a ghost tour in Sharpsburg (I’ll blog about my frightful experience later…)

Do I look scared hee hee? My favorite type of books are the ones that make me scared to go to sleep at night. The ones that give me chills and stay on my mind long after I read ‘the end.’ The ones that make me think.

I hope you guys like to read, and I hope you like free stuff. With this blog hop, I’m including a giveaway:

3 LUCKY WINNERS WILL WIN AN EBOOK COPY OF TWISTED OBSESSION!!!

28704404

I can give the winners a PDF or a gifted copy from Amazon. The giveaway runs July 14th through July 18th, so please make sure to check back in on my blog to see if you were one of the lucky winners.

Here’s the rules:

In the comment section of this blog post or on my author Facebook page, tell me the craziest thing your ex ever did to try and convince you  not to break up with him or her. The 3 most whackiest, craziest answer (I’ll be the judge. You know how the saying goes “reality is stranger than fiction”) will win Twisted Obsession, my latest suspense novella.

GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!

 

Keep smiling,

  1. It was great to know about your reading habits. Enjoyed a lot reading this post. Happy International Author’s Day! 🙂

    Now here’s the answer to your quirky question:

    My ex tried to convince or rather manipulate me by reminding me of all the past memories. He used to constantly send me old pictures, letters or gifts that I had send him etc. It was like full on crazy emotional blackmailing and playing the victim card, but thankfully I got rid of him.

    • Hey Purba,

      Happy International Authors’ Day to you too!!! Oh man, that sucks, using the emotional blackmail card. It’s good that you stayed strong. 🙂 Thanks for joining my contest. Good luck!

      Keep smiling,
      Yawatta

  2. The craziest thing my ex did was to contest his own divorce. Yes . He agreed to the divorce got a lawyer then when we went to court said he did not want the divorce and refused to sign the papers. ( I did win and no I did not take him back)
