Monday's Muse

Monday, September 10

Hello my booklover friends!  I was absent from the blog pretty much all of last week, and for that I am sorry.  Some things that I had planned had to be rescheduled, then others just didn't work out for one reason or another, then I was busy finishing up a new book cover for author Mia Marlowe....and before I knew it it was Friday and I hadn't posted all week!  I feel bad about that since I have many reviews that should have been posted, so I'm going to try and make up for not being here last week.  Thank you to everyone who emailed to make sure that everything was OK.

Hopefully this week's Muse will make up for it :)

And if you didn't see it posted on Facebook, or on Mia Marlowe's blog (she has a before and after look), here's the new cover I created for her historical romance How to Vex a Viscount (re-releasing 9/2012), and hey it has Jimmy Thomas on the cover so it's almost like have two Muses this week, LOL!

This week at Seductive Musings:
  • Monday: Just following this post will be a my interview with author Shannon McKenna.  Shannon was the first author that turned me on to Romantic Suspense...what a way to start, huh?  It's a bit unusual for me to have more than one post on a Monday, but when I received the opportunity to have Shannon as my guest again I couldn't resist!  Shannon is my guest today to celebrate the upcoming release of her new book in the McCloud brothers series, One Wrong Move.  There are two giveaways with this one, one of them is for a Kindle Touch! (or maybe a newer model who knows)
  • Tuesday:  I hope to have several reviews for you. 
  • Wednesday:  More reviews, or possibly a rescheduled guest post with Jaci Burton
  • Thursday:  More reviews, or possibly a rescheduled guest post with Jaci Burton
  • Friday:  I'll be guesting at Romance At Random talking about books made into movies/TV series with some not so subtle hints as to what I would like to see :)  So stop by and make sure you put your two cents in just never know who may read it and take our advice!  And if I get my act together, maybe one or two reviews as well.  Hopefully neither you nor I will be reviewed out at this point, LOL.
  • Tempting Trailer: Now, I know you know I'm not a big paranormal romance reader, but if it involves a shifter, then I'll take a second look. I love those, don't ask me why, it's one of those things that goes beyond just is :)  I ran across this new paranormal romance shifter series from author A.C. Arthur on and was curious to see if anyone has read Temptation Rising yet?  I'm not familiar with this author, so if you've read it I would love to know your take on it.  The next book in this series comes out later this month.

Also of Interest:
  • Need a little Nauti fix? Check out the prologue that Lora Leigh posted for the upcoming Nauti novella Nauti Temptress on her blog . I'm assuming that this is the novella that will appear in the anthology Nauti and Wilder with Jaci Burton scheduled for release 12/31/2012.  I'm a fan of the Nauti series and have been waiting for this anthology for a loooong time.

Finally, I'd like to congratulate all of the authors with new releases this week, especially Musings authors Beth Kery, Delilah Devlin, & Vivian Arend!  Congrats ladies!

The cover totally makes up for it! I LOVE it! A job well done, now I can't wait to go buy it!

Thanks Lexi! I haven't read this one of Mia's (Emily Bryan) either so I will be glad once it is available again.

Hey Carol,

Jimmy Thomas is practically King when it comes to romance covers :) I guess that's a good thing since you can admire him often, LOL. I'm glad you think I did him justice and hope you oogle this one as often as you want!

Good to know that you loved the original Vexing the Viscount. I'm with Lexi, I can't wait to read it!

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)
