“Spring is in the Air” Blog Hop

XOXO eBook Prize Package XOXO Spring Blog Hop

Hello, everyone, and welcome to my part of the “Spring is in the Air” blog hop.


Spring means different things to different people. For some it means finding love. I’m lucky enough to have found mine—best-selling, critically-acclaimed paranormal author Desirée Lee: www.desireelee.com. For others, it means the start of a new season of planting, farming, or gardening. For others, it simply means an end to the cold of winter. On the morning I write this post, our overnight low was supposed to have only been 33 degrees. We woke up to a chilling 21 degrees. That being the case, I’m with those seeking warming spring weather! Still others long for spring for the April showers, which bring May flowers.


Rain showers… Rain forest… Jungle… The setting of my eighth novel, “Quintana Roo, Yucatan”. The book launched a publishing company (Umbral Press – www.umbralpress.com) and won an award for Second-Place in the Paranormal Romance Guild’s 2012 Reviewers’ Choice Awards a month after its release.


“Quintana Roo, Yucatan”


Rikki Breitenberg is an archeologist in charge of the first team of American documenters allowed by the Mexican government to explore newly discovered Mayan ruins in the Yucatan. However, shortly after their arrival in Mexico, things go awry. Treacherous jungle, inclement weather and dangerous wildlife are only the beginning.


When Rikki and her team run afoul of members of an ancient cult devoted to the worship of a bloodthirsty god, things take a terrifying turn for the worse. During their struggle for survival, the team makes a startling discovery that may rewrite the whole of human history. Will they survive to bring their amazing find back to civilization?

Part of the fun of blog hops such as this are the giveaways. The “Spring is in the Air” blog hop is no exception. XOXO Publishing is offering an e-book prize package as the Grand Prize drawing for this hop. To enter, please simple comment on this blog post. Be sure to include your e-mail address, so that you can be contacted if you win.


At add to the fun, I’m offering a giveaway of my own—an e-book edition (PDF format) of my novel “Predators or Prey?”. That book, my fourth novel, was the first in my Wendy Markland series. Since the book’s release in its original e-book format, there has been interested from several parties in adapting it as a film or TV series. Also, the Wendy Markland books are the basis of an up-coming, on-going comic book series called “Wendy Markland: Chronicles Nocturnum”. I’ll be writing and lettering the series. Learn more about “Predators or Prey?” HERE. To enter to win a copy, please go HERE.


Best of luck to you in the contests, and thank you for visiting!

    Spring means to me a haze of yellow pollen covering EVERYTHING (including the cats), seasonal allergies, tourists, crowds at my favorite restaurants, traffic jams, resuming pay-for-parking at the beach, even mosquitoes. It’s not my favorite season!

    Thanks for the giveaway! Spring is in the air, but unfortunately living in Upstate NY, it is not even close to arriving. It snowed again at my house just tonight. I’m looking forward to the warm weather and longer days though. Spring is the time of love and my favorite romance novel is entitled “Outlander” by Diana Gabaldon. It’s not strictly a romance novel as it’s found in the literature section of a bookstore, but it has strong romantic elements. Jamie Fraser is my favorite romantic hero as he’s strong, sensitive, honorable and slightly flawed. Sometimes his pride gets in the way of making the right decision, but in the end, he’d do anything for Claire.
    I love this giveaway hop! And, I plan to keep on hopping!
