Random Fun (and Giveaway!) Back to Blog
EDITED TO ADD: The winner (which I drew using random.org) is Michele!! Please contact me at katiereus (@) yahoo. com (no spaces or parenthesis). Congrats!!
Thanks so much to Cynthia for letting me blog with her today! The woman certainly knows how to throw a party 😉 I’m so excited for her release of Deadly Heat (which I’ve been impatiently waiting for after reading Deadly Fear)!
Today’s post is a little random but fun (I hope).
One of the most annoying things to me is when I get a completely ridiculous song stuck in my head. And I just keep humming or singing it all day or sometimes for weeks! My husband and I are always quoting Will Ferrell movies (I have a weird obsession with him) and if you’ve seen Blades of Glory you’ll know that Chaz (Ferrell’s character) is a ‘professional’ ice skater and is insistent that he and his partner going to skate to the song ‘My Humps’ by the Black Eyed Peas. That song is just so insane and makes no sense yet it crawls into your brain and sets up camp. Since my baby bump just popped (I’m pregnant with my first child, btw) my husband has been singing that song but replacing the words with ‘my bump, my bump, my lovely baby bump’. He changes the lyrics to a lot of songs and normally I think it’s hilarious but this time it’s driving me a little crazy because of the chosen song, yet I’m always humming it.
What does this have to do with writing or my recent release? Absolutely nothing. I just wanted to share some goodness about myself with you. So now you know I’m preggo and I love Will Ferrell (probably too much).
Writing is such a solitary profession so I love when wonderful authors like Cynthia let me hang out with them! This month I’m celebrating the release of my first book from Carina Press. This is the first release under my ‘Katie’ writing persona in two years so I’m very excited about it. It’s got danger and secrets (hence the title) and a very hot southern hero!
Dangerous Secrets Blurb:
Isabelle Ballantine has been fighting for independence since she was old enough to walk. Now that she’s finally out from under her father’s shadow, she won’t let anyone stand in her way. It’s tough living on her own, working in a bar and keeping her true identity a secret, but things start to look up when a sexy new stranger walks into her life. After working side by side for weeks, Izzy can’t figure out why he won’t make a move.
To cinch the deal of a lifetime, Adam Marcellus agrees to help Izzy’s eccentric father convince his daughter to move home. He’d assumed Izzy would be another spoiled rich princess, but he’s surprised to discover his feelings for her are stronger than anything he’s ever experienced. When a deranged stalker targets her, Adam finds himself fighting not only an unknown threat—but an unexpected attraction to the one woman he can’t have.
Thanks again to Cynthia for hosting me today! I love it when she has a blog party and since she’s been cool enough to host me, I want to offer a book from my back list to one commenter (check out my website for a complete list) who I’ll draw at random. Since this will be a digital giveaway the contest is open internationally (though void where prohibited). You have until tomorrow at noon (Eastern) to enter. I’ll announce the winner in the body of the post and in the comments section!
A little about me: I’ve been reading romance since I was a kid and the addiction stayed with me into adulthood. I write sexy paranormal romance and fast-paced romantic suspense. Dangerous Secrets is my first release from Carina Press (2/7/11) and in early 2012 my first book in a paranormal trilogy will release from Signet Eclipse (NAL/Penguin).
