Celebrating Independence Blog Hop Giveaway!


All right, guys and gals, it's time for another blog hop! I do enjoy these hops, getting to be introduced to new authors, and for me personally, to give a little something back to readers :-)  Once again, I'll be giving away one book off my backlist, in ebook. For a chance to win, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post. Be sure to include your email address, so I can contact you in case you win. If you're not comfortable putting your email out there for everyone's eyes, you can also email your entry to me at s.j.frost3@gmail.com  I'll be announcing the winner on May 5th.

And don't forget to stop by other blogs participating in this hop for a chance to win more books and prizes! There are over 200 authors taking part from many different genres. To see who's offering prizes, please go HERE.

I also have to give a huge thank you to Drea Becraft for all her time and efforts with organizing the hop. Great job, Drea!

 To everyone, I hope you have a safe and fun 4th of July! Best of luck to all who enter the giveaway!

  7. S.J.-

    Like K-lee Klien above, I have all your books (you hit my top five favorites list for m/m) so this is really me just saying HI! too. Oh and I'm gonna comment on your post from a few days ago about writing updates here. Hope that's ok- I think most of your fans completely understand the need for quality editing. Not saying I love the wait, but I know it will be worth it. I haven't tried K-lee Klien's books though Ive been meaning to, so maybe I'll give hers a try while I wait for the next instincts book. :) I don't suppose you'd give a hint as to whether you decided to have Andreas bind Dakarai?? I'm dying to read this book for so many reasons. I'm also very very much looking forward to Brad's story. I can't wait!! Happy Fourth!!!

    1. Oh wow, I can't even begin to say how flattered I am! Thank you so incredibly much for your kind words! To be on your top 5 list for m/m authors is a huge compliment. I know this genre is packed with talent, and I'm thrilled you enjoy my books that much! Thank you!

      And I greatly appreciate your understanding on Loving Instincts. Hopefully it won't be too much longer of a wait! Andreas and Dakarai...I'm going to play evil author here and not let out any hints one way or another, but I can at least say that issue is addressed in the book ;-) Thank you for looking forward to Brad's story, too!

      I'm wishing you and yours a wonderful 4th! Thank you again for your sweet words *hugs*
