Monday's Muse

Monday, November 29

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 only read two books last week, but considering all that went on, I think that's pretty darn good. One of which was Lorelei James's Cowgirls Don't Cry.  I love me some McKay cowboys, so in honor of the newest, and might I add great, addition to this series, I thought our Muse this week should be a cowboy :)  Ms. James' hero in the book made a leather wallet for the woman he secretly loved (his sister-in-law at the time), then when they finally become a couple for Christmas she gets him leather working tools because the wallet that he made her years ago still means so much to her. *sigh*  I love that.  I'm seriously thinking about packing up the car and moving out west...especially if someone like our Muse this week could be waiting for me :) Lorelei, if you happen to read this, know that every time you gift us with one of your stories it's like the perfect present to your readers and we are lucky enough to get several gifts each year. 

This week at Seductive Musings:
  • Karen Hawkins will by my guest to celebrate her newest historical romance One Night in Scotland.  This was supposed to be last week, but we had to reschedule.
  • Chloe Harris will be here on Wednesday Dec 1st to share her newest Aphrodisia Erotic Historical Romance In Deep with us
  • Later this week I will also have a writing contest for anyone who would like to participate. I'll provide the inspiration, you write a short story based on it.  I haven't quite decided what I will be giving away yet.  I'll  post the submissions during the week that I'm gone and readers will vote on their favorite to determine the winner.  I think it sounds like fun, so I hope you do too! 
  • Finally, I have a new Tempting Trailer for you.  This week I'm featuring Mad About the Duke by Elizabeth Boyle
Did anyone here get the Kindle 2 when it was a "lightning deal" on Amazon on Black Friday?  They had it for $89...AND I MISSED IT!  Apparently they had a couple of thousand to sell at that price and they were gone lightning fast...not even all of the people who added it to their cart actually got to purchase it at the special price.  Oh hope now is that by the time I finish my "Free Kindle Quest" with Swagbucks  (I'm now up to $60) that Amazon will introduce a new Kindle with a color screen for the same price....hey a girl can dream can't she?

Just wanted to remind you of two things:
  • That I will not be blogging (unless I get my butt in gear) for one week in December because I will be on vacation with my family.  If you are interested I am thinking about having a few guest bloggers during that time, maybe you have a hot topic that you'd like to discuss, a review you'd like to post, or even if you are a writer that would like to post a few exclusive excerpts for an upcoming me so that we can discuss options.
  • I'm still accepting applications for Seductive Reviewers....if you are interested please contact me using the contact link at the top of the blog.
Have a great Monday!

Love the muse! No, no Kindle for me. I have the Nook. I love it. Although, $89 sounds like a steal!

I tried to buy that $89 Kindle. I was waiting by my pc 15mins ahead of time...apparently, me and several thousand other people, too. I clicked purchase the second it went live. And nada. Nothing. I didn't even get waitlisted! I was SO MADDDD!!!! Oh well...

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 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 and gift cards on this rewards site)
