Memorable Mondays Extra: The Thrill of it All Blogfest



In addition to my earlier postHeather M. Gardner and Tara Tyler are hosting The Thrill of it All Blogfest, in celebration of their own publishing thrills. Heather with MCGUIRE'S CORNER (out now) and Tara with POP TRAVEL (07.07.13). Congratulations, ladies!

The Rules:
On June 24th, share a big thrill. It can be real or fiction. Just keep it to a paragraph or two. Tara and Heather will be judging the posts.

The Prizes:

1) An e-copy of MCGUIRE'S CORNER.
2) An ARC of POP TRAVEL.
3) A $20 Amazon GC.
4) A banner or caricature by Tara.

Sign ups can be found here, and make sure you hop around to everyone else's blog.

As I'm taking part at the last minute - I literally found out about this fest an hour ago - here's a thrilling little excerpt from my current paranormal romance WiP. Enjoy!

"A thrill of excitement shot up my spine when I realised, just a few steps ahead of me was Pierre Beaufort, the male model sensation and face of the newly launched Farley Cosmetics masculine range. The ad campaign featured him in nothing but tight black boxers and I almost didn't recognise him with his clothes on, but I’d remember those piercing blue eyes and luscious blond hair anywhere."
