Things of Note

Note #1: Missy's sinuses are kicking her tail right now and the medicines are NOT kicking in.

Note #2: I'm not reviewing it, but if you like the sexy time books, Anchor And Storm by Kate Poole is a sweet little read. Definitely not approved for the younger audience, but it's good for the older demographic.

Like the tweet-a-thon for Jackson Pearce's Sisters Red, we are going to be promoting #sealove for Heidi R Kling's release of Sea tomorrow. If you're on Twitter, please join in and help promote a wonderful author and book! You don't even have to go all out, but adding #sealove to the end of each post would really help out. My goal is to see #sealove as a US trending topic. It's something I didn't see with #sistersred, and I'm still slightly bitter about it. Want to know more about Sea, by Heidi Kling? I'll post some information for you!!

Haunted by recurring nightmares since her mother’s disappearance over the Indian ocean three years before, fifteen-year old California girl Sienna Jones reluctantly travels with her psychiatrist father’s volunteer team to six-months post-tsunami Indonesia where she meets the scarred and soulful orphaned boy, Deni, who is more like Sea than anyone she has ever met.

She knows they can’t be together, so why can’t she stay away from him? And what about her old best friend-turned-suddenly-hot Spider who may or may not be waiting for her back home? And why won’t her dad tell her the truth about her mother’s plane crash? The farther she gets from home, the closer she comes to finding answers.

And Sea’s real adventure begins.

You may or may not have also noticed that I have FINALLY started to update my sidebar for contests and giveaways that I have seen around the web. Even if you may have some of the books, I still urge you guys to check out the blogs. These bloggers are all very wonderful and put a lot of effort into everything they do for their readers.
