It’s no secret that I love books. After all, I write romances and it was the love of reading that led me to writing my own. You should see the bookcases in my office stuffed with everything from paperback to hardback. But maybe it would surprise you that I still buy books for my daughter? She’s a grown woman now and has her own tastes in reading material. She loves paranormals, probably after years of reading the Harry Potter Series and the host of copy-cat books that followed it.
But maybe it would surprise you that I still buy books for my daughter? She’s a grown woman now and has her own tastes in reading material. She loves paranormals, probably after years of reading the Harry Potter Series and the host of copy-cat books that followed it.
So after I bought a paranormal novel by a new author I wasn’t familiar with and really enjoyed it, I thought my daughter would too. I bought it for her as an eBook so she can read it on her app.
Gone are the days of heading to the bookstore and buying the book as a gift. Or even passing around a book you enjoyed. (I miss bookstores) But then again, I think I like this better. The author makes another sale. I buy the book as a gift online, and Amazon, Barns and Noble or whoever does the rest.
What do you think of ordering eBooks as a gift?

I wrote a post about my goals for 2016.
What are your goals or New Years resolutions?
If you are looking for the Snarkolgy Halloween Blog Hop, then you have found it.
***Please read the entire post for information on my blog hop prize and the prize for the hop.***
What do you love about Halloween?
For me, I loved making my daughter’s costumes for Trick-or-treat. She’s been a bunny, cowgirl, Little Red Ridding Hood, fairy complete with wings, spider queen with a companion spider she’d walk on a pole, an angel with wings make with real feathers (I can’t take credit for that one) and a cat.
My daughter is grown now, but I still remember the festive feel to Halloween night, kids were (and still are) so excited to wear their costumes, and most people were friendly and nice. I’d walked my daughter along the road so she could knock on the doors. The scent of candle wax and pumpkin from the hand-carved jack-o-lanterns and the crisp fall leaves filled the air. We’d come home exhausted, and my daughter’s bag bursting at the seams. She was always a big hit when she trick-or-treated.
Blurb and excerpt from my published book: Matrix Crystal Hunters:
Team Alpha Three’s spaceship is out of power after fighting a wormhole, and parked on the primitive world of Zenevieva. With half the team sick from radiation poisoning, the team commander entrust geologist, Maya Gladstone, to find enough matrix crystals to power up their spacecraft, so they can go home to Earth. Vach Namaste of the powerful Clan Namaste, a native of the planet, has desired the lovely Maya since she stepped off the spaceship on that astonishing day a year ago. He’s hounded her every step since. As Hymeneal Night approaches, he makes plans to take her as his bride… willing or not.
“There’s a bow in the rock wall.” Vach backed up, causing Maya to withdraw. “I’m bigger than the last time I went through here, but that was several years ago when my cousin, Xeno, brought me.”
He handed her the flashlight.
“Is there another way?” She shone the light around, noting how the crevice narrowed overhead.
“Not that I know of.” He grunted, trying to remove his robe, but there wasn’t much room to maneuver.
“Here, let me help you.” Maya pulled the robe off his shoulder. “Surely the ancients didn’t come through here?” She jerked one sleeve down over his hand and then reached to get the other side too, but found herself wedged between the rock wall and his hard body. Fighting the impulse to feel his muscles, she managed to get his other sleeve down.
“If there’s another entrance, it must have been blocked a long time ago.” He started to pull his tunic off, but struggled, thanks to his big arms and the lack of room. “Can you help me with my shirt?”
As Vach lifted his arms over his head, Maya grabbed a handful of cloth so she could lift the material high over his shoulders. “What are you going to do? Strip down and lube yourself with my cooking oil?”
“No.” He chuckled, his voice muffled by the shirt. “But that’s a good idea.”
With his arms up, Maya got a whiff of his spicy, male scent. It always surprised her that the Zeemen didn’t stink after exertion as humans did. I wouldn’t mind rubbing his body down with oil. Warmth spiraled through her middle. She bit her lip. Keep your mind on business and not on being in a tight spot with a handsome Zeeman.
Vach stuck his clothes in the tote and then sidestepped through the narrow opening. Grunting as he pushed past the bow, he finally got through.
Maya approached the bend and realized it was about breast height on her. No wonder Vach had a problem, with his deep chest and heavily muscled back.
Contemplating the aperture, she stood on tiptoe but couldn’t get high enough. Finally, she squatted down but then found she needed to keep her knees bent out sideways. Oh no, not awkward at all.
She managed a few crab steps before she got stuck. Vach grabbed her arm to pull her the rest of the way through. Her hiking boots slid over the loose gravel, while her thighs took the strain. He helped her to stand, leaving his hands placed on her waist as she leaned against the wall, panting. “I don’t know how we’re going to manage that going back.”
“At least we know it’s there.” His breath puffed against her face. It smelled of mint.
He must have used my toothpaste. “Yeah, I guess you’re right.”
With an electric jolt, Maya realized her shirt had risen up and Vach’s hands were resting on her bare skin. She became hyperaware of his scent, his closeness and the fact that he wore no shirt.
Moving even closer toward her in the confined space, he whispered in her ear. “I like the smell of your hair.”
His hand slid further under her shirt, gliding over her ribs.
Heat went through her as she rested her hand on his shoulder. “It’s my shampoo.”
“You can borrow it sometime.”
