Musa Memorial Day Weekend Blog Hop!


Memorial Day marks the start of summer, and what better way to prepare for summer than load up your e-reader with some fantastic books? To kick off your book shopping, check out the blogs on Musa Publishing's Memorial Day Weekend Blog Hop! My fellow Musa authors and I are linking blogs over the long weekend to help you discover new authors and revisit old favorites. Each of us will be hosting our own giveaways, so the more blogs you visit, the more chances you have to win. Also, if you'd like to stay up to date on new blog posts, new releases, and general goings-on, you can Like my Facebook author page and/or follow me on Twitter.

Now, my summer plans are relatively tame - with a LOT of time spent at the Jersey shore. I'll also be going on a cruise in late August, so I hope to come back with a lot of new ideas and a lot of new (read exotic) settings.

And of course, I'll be writing, Can't get away from that, not even on vacation, :D

Now, for the good stuff...



For a chance to win any book from my Musa back list, leave a comment sharing what summer plans you have on tap for this year. Please comment before midnight (Eastern time), Monday, May 28 and don't forget to tell me which book you'd like. I'll announce the winner on Tuesday, May 29.

Also FYI: Musa will send a free issue of Penumbra magazine as a thank you gift to anyone serving overseas in the military. Check out the Penumbra eZine blog for more details.

Now, for the more serious stuff - while you're enjoying your friends and family and barbecuing and perhaps doing some swimming - please stop and take a moment to think about the true meaning of Memorial Day. It isn't about the hot dogs, or beer, or volleyball. It's about the brave men and women of our Armed Forces who made the ultimate sacrifice in order to preserve the freedoms we so love.

Now, enjoy your Memorial Day weekend

I'd already liked you. Now I'm following you too. Enjoy your summer. I wish I lived near a beach to spend my days watching the waves and gathering writing inspiration!

Road trip!! I love our long summer drives. It's always for the Elks so its a win-win - veterans are always a big focus!

Sounds like you are going to have a fantastic summer. It's starting to get cold here in Australia.

We're still trying to shake out some summer plans. The problem is, the sorts of vacations we're used to aren't possible in the middle of the country, so we're sort of in research mode...and running out of planning time. We might actually have to get on a plane and go somewhere.

I'm going to play with my son and grandbaby and just chill. And if I get lucky and win a book, I like the looks of A Perfect Lady.

I like the cover of After the Storm so I'll try for it...I'm a librarian & I do judge books by their covers...LOL!

I just had a big promotion this month at work. I'll be spending my summer learning this new area & duties. All work & no play for me!

We're still working summer plans out. Right now we have a yawning two week gap with no school or camp for the kids. EKK!

I will be spending my summer reading, playing with the kids, and fixing things around the house. I love my summers.
