Giveaway: Barefoot in the Sun - Roxanne St. Clair (With Guest Post)



A Barefoot Bay Novel

When running is all you've ever known . . . 
Caught between fight and flight, Zoe Tamarin has always picked flight. Since she was rescued from a nightmare childhood by her great-aunt Pasha, they've been on the move, never staying in one place long enough to risk exposing their precarious past. But now that they've reached the sun-baked shores of Barefoot Bay, Zoe may have to stay and fight-for her aunt's life . . . and for a love she ran from years before.
Sometimes the bravest act of all is to stand still.
Oliver Bradbury came to Florida to start over, as both a doctor and a father to his eight-year-old son. He never expected life to hand him a second chance with the woman he lost years ago-but one look at Zoe Tamarin and he knows he'll do whatever it takes to prove that this time, he can be the man she needs. But when demands of family and friendship threaten to shatter their rekindled passion, Oliver must heal Zoe's lifelong wounds with more than hot kisses . . . but will that be enough to keep her from flying off with his heart?

Roxanne's Favorite Summer Memory
Great question! Might be the toughest question I’ve ever been asked because, ahem, what if my husband reads this and he’s not the object of my best summer romance memory?  Oh, I have so many!  So, I’ll go waaaaay back...to my pre-teen years.  My family took a vacation in Florida and I was about twelve or thirteen. Not my peak beauty years, I’ll admit.

But one day as I walked the beach looking for shells with my older sister, I spied a boy about my age, who seemed not to notice that I had braces, boring brown hair, and nature hadn’t quite filled me out yet.  I think it was that moment that my sister taught me the “laugh with your friend even if nothing’s funny because everyone is more attractive when they laugh” trick.  It worked!

He eventually came over and talked to me and for the next week we took a few walks on the beach and talked.  His name was Barry, he had a shock of bright red hair, a very sweet personality, and he lived in Canada.  I wish I could remember his last name -- I’d find him on Facebook right now!  At the end of the week, he gave me my first little kiss (chaste!) and we exchanged (dating myself here) street addresses.  Like, you know, snail mail.  We corresponded for about a year but lost touch.  I’m sure he doesn’t remember the girl from Pittsburgh, but I remember him because he was the first boy to make me feel truly pretty.  And my sister is right - everyone is more attractive when they’re laughing!

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers. You may have great content but if you don't have good ways of boosting your blog's image, or dealing with the people who engage with you, then you'll be talking into a void. Here is why having good communication and PR skills, and even studying to improve them using something like an online master of communication management degree from the University of Southern California, is so vital for blog owners. You Want to Be a Credible Source of InformationWhen you put content out on the web, you want it to be either entertaining or useful – ideally both. You may work hard on writing good posts or hiring people who can create useful and interesting stuff…
