Monday's Muse

Monday, May 30

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!

Happy Memorial Day to everyone in the US!  Monday's Muse is coming to you a bit later than usual (my apologies), but the family is gathering today and had lots to do including making homemade ice cream. (yum!)

I just wanted to take a few minutes to not only let you know what my plans are for the week at SM, but also to give my heartfelt thanks to all of our service men and women, and their families who so selflessly give of themselves, and to remember the sacrifices that have been made to keep us free and safe.  Thank you!  Those two words don't even begin to show my gratitude and sympathy to those who have lost someone who was dear to them.  My thoughts are with you today.

This week at Seductive Musings:
  • Tuesday:  I hope to have a recap of my reading adventures for both April and May (since I seem to not have gotten to April yet )
  • Wednesday:  Author Grace Burrowes will be my guest to celebrate her new historical romance The Soldier.  Seems kind of fitting to be talking about this book the same week as Memorial Day. 
  • Thursday-Friday:  I hope to have a few reviews for you...quite possibly including one for Julia Quinn's new historical romance Just Like Heaven.
  • Tempting Trailer:  This week it is for Kate Noble's newest historical romance Follow My Lead, which came out earlier this month.  I believe she made the trailer herself and I quite like it.
Also of Interest:
  • Bethany Kane (Beth Kery) is having an "Addicted to You" contest on her blog to celebrate the upcoming release Addicted to You which releases next week on June 7th.
  • Vivian Arend's big giveaway is in it's fourth and final week.  Don't miss it.
  • And Anya Bast is also having a massive giveaway titled the "Jaded & Jeweled Jubilee" to celebrate the release of her new book Jaded, which also comes out next week.  These look so hot!
Finally, I'd like to congratulate all of the authors with new releases this week, especially Musings authors Lori Foster, Olivia Parker, Grace Burrowes, Katie Lane, Carolyn Jewel, Lucy Monroe, and my dream guest Julia Quinn!  If you like historical romance even half as much as I do than you will be practically giddy with this week's offerings!

Whoa! What a week for releases! I look forward to your widget of new releases each week. But my budget doesn't. I didn't know the new Kritina Douglas release was out. That first book was excellent.

Hope your weekend was fantastic!

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)
