Monday's Muse

Monday, May 10

Sorry, but the image containing the Monday's Muse has been removed from this blog so as not to violate any copyright issues.  Thanks for your understanding!

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend.  The weather has been cold and wet where I live, which makes me want to stay in bed and cuddle up. Can you blame me with this week's Muse to keep me warm and entertained? Sweet baby Jesus, forget sighworthy...he's a definite candidate for leaving me breathless!  Holy Cow, I can't stop looking :)  Seriously, we may not have a new Muse for a looong time so I hope you enjoy the view.

In other news, I was saddened on Sunday when I read that another of the first blogs that I started to follow is closing down...Royal Reviews.  It was a collaborative blog, and was how I first found the author Emily Bryan when they featured her books for an entire week.  Not long ago Lust In Time, also a collaborative blog by the authors Amanda McIntyre, Charlotte Featherstone and Kristina Cook decided to close down.  It seems like more and more of the collaborative blogs are closing.  I can understand their reasons even though it is disappointing, because most of these bloggers were also responsible for their own blogs, sometimes more than one if they write under different pen names, in addition to the ones they were contributing to.  I'll miss them. But, on the flip side Cecile from her blog All I Want and More added a new member, Monroe, to her Smutty Hussy Lair.  I can't wait to see what they will have in store for us!  And another favorite blogger Leontine from Leontine's Book Realm has a new collaborative blog called Realms on Our Bookshelves with three other bloggers which looks to be interesting in case you would like to check it out.

This week I hope to have two reviews for you as well as guest authors Karin Harlow, Maggie Robinson and hopefully the long awaited interview with Charlotte Featherstone (crossing fingers for later in the week).  I can hardly contain myself and my excitement. I also updated the Tempting Trailer video for this week. It's for Lisa Kleypas's new historical romance Married by Morning...a definite read for me later this month. And I am in the process of updating the Upcoming Events calendar.  I spent all of last week sending out invitations to authors and I can hardly contain my excitement.  Once I have confirmed dates I will post all of the upcoming guests.  I think you'll be excited by what you see as well.  So while I didn't get as much done on the blog last week as I wanted to, there was a lot going on behind the scenes that will bear fruit in the upcoming months.  Big juicy sweet fruit!  Curious?  Any guesses?  You'll just have to keep checking the Upcoming Events calendar to see what I mean :)

Have a good one!

Happy Monday, it was crazy windy and cold in the Northeast. Can't wait for the Featherstone interview. Have a great one!

I'm also saddened by the closure of Royal Reviews and Lust In Time. They have been trusted sources for new books/authors for me for quite some time and will be dearly missed.

On the other hand, I'm thrilled to see that your blog is gaining more followers/authors. Keeping up with a daily blog must be a lot of work and I just want to say Thank You for it....I love getting your muses/reviews/interviews,etc...And I love finding new authors that we both enjoy!!!

Thank You Mitzi! It is a lot of work, cuts down on my reading time, but as a hobby I love it. Especially when I get to learn more about books and authors that I love.

I think we are kindred romance loving spirits :) Have a good one and thanks for your comments. I always enjoy reading them.

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy one...so in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both Amazon.com and Amazon.ca gift cards on this rewards site)
