Monday's Muse

Monday, July 4

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!

This week's Muse is dedicated to Seductive Musings follower Chele who has been patiently waiting for the blanket wearing flag Muse I mentioned when visiting Pamela Clare's blog for her Man Titty Monday (in which I declared my own holiday) :)  Chele here's you Muse!  I hope you enjoy :)  Happy 4th everyone!

And, since today is a holiday in the US, I'm gonna try to make this short and sweet.  I made a few changes on the blog this weekend to hopefully make it a bit easier to find what you're looking for, and made a few attempts to make the blog load faster (which I am still working on because my first and second attempts weren't so successful).  
  • I added several icons to the top of the blog reflecting all of my social media connections around the world wide web (facebook, twitter, goodreads, ebay, youtube, amazon store, donation, contact...).  I've received emails about finding these things which used to be at the bottom of the blog, but I didn't want to make it seem overcrowded at the top, so I think these little buttons are a good solution.  I'd love to know what you think.
  • I ended up creating a YouTube channel so that all of the Tempting Trailers could be found in the same place...just in case you'd like to browse through them.  It certainly isn't all of them, just the most recent ones.  Maybe someday I will have time to go back and add the ones I've featured in the past.  Someday :)
  • I'd also like to know if you'd like to see an "About" page on the blog with some general bio info about me and the occasional reviewers at Seductive Musings.  I'd be more than happy to have it on the blog if it is something that you'd be interested in.
  • I added the Ratings Guide to a separate link in the menu bar.  I found that having it in the Reviews link was too hard to find.
  • I got rid of the Amazon Story link in the menu bar, since there is now an Amazon icon link in the Welcome to Seductive Musings section at the top of the blog.  Instead of taking you to a page within SM, it will take you directly to the Seductive Musings Store at Amazon itself.  I think this works better, and I hope you do too.  For those of you who support SM by purchasing items through the blog, I would love to know your thoughts.  Easier, better, not so much ?
  • I also changed some things around on Twitter and kind of spruce them up since I was making a few other changes everywhere else.
  • Is there anything that you'd like to see on the blog that is not there, or something you wish would disappear forever? For instance, would you like a menu bar "Muse" link to take you to all of the posts with Muses?   I'd like to make the blog a bit cleaner, but to do that I would have to lose things.  Please tell me, don't be can even leave an anonymous comment if you'd like  :)  

This week at Seductive Musings:
  • Tuesday:  Reviews for Lessons in Indiscretion by Karen Erickson and Rising, Freestyle by Vivian Arend
  • Wednesday:  Author Vicky Dreiling will be my guest to celebrate the release of her new historical romance How to Seduce a Scoundrel.
  • Thursday:  I'll have winners from the most recent giveaways, and a Thursday's Thoughts post on the Romance Writer's of America RITA's that were awarded last Friday
  • Friday:  Author Stephanie Julian will be here to share her new paranormal erotic romance, What a Goddess Wants.
  • Tempting Trailer:  This week it is for Nicola Cornick's sumptuous video for her new historical romance, Notorious, which releases later this month.
    Finally, I'd like to congratulate all of the authors will new releases this week, especially Musings authors Vivian Arend who has two releases this week, Lora Leigh, Lauren Dane, Melissa McClone,  and  Cara Carnes.  Congratulations!

I don't use Amazon to earn money, I use it because the widgets are cool, easy to use, and serve my purposes to showcase books & such with minimal effort, but most importantly they have great prices and offer both new and used items.

    thank you thank you...i bow to you he was worth the wait...such naughty thoughts be brought up from my muse!!

    You have been busy! Okay, I checked out the buttons you added. I think they're convenient and helpful. I didn't know you had stuff on ebay and now I'm a subscriber to your YouTube channel. But I still refuse to be a twit; who has the time.

    Thank goodness! Only one book on pre-order this week that I saw on your widget thingy. Although, there were a few others that did catch my interest. I'll have to start a TBR List.

    Hope you had a fun weekend!

    I'm glad you like them Artemis..the buttons :) As far as the Ebay button....I should have stuff listed on there to sell, but just haven't seemed to find the time. But when I do list some of the books I have to sell I will be sure to let everyone know in case someone might be interested. I have TONS to get rid of!

    You are so welcome Chele! I was hoping he wouldn't be a disappointment to you since he wasn't actually in a bed, but you gotta like that he is willing to rough it a bit :) You just run with those naughty thoughts after all I'm a firm believer in following your Muse :)

    I aim to please LilMissMolly! Glad you enjoyed the surprise.

    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)
