#Win The Last Di Sione Claims His Prize by Maisey Yates (US)

MAISEY YATES is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author who lives in rural Oregon with her three children and her husband—whose chiseled jaw and arresting features continue to make her swoon. She feels the epic trek she takes several times a day from her office to her coffee maker is a true example of her pioneer spirit.


In 2009, at the age of 23 Yates sold her first book. Since then it's been a whirlwind of sexy alpha males and happily ever-afters, and she wouldn't have it any other way. She divides her writing time between dark, passionate category romances set just about everywhere and light, sexy contemporary romances set practically in her back yard. She believes that she clearly has the best job in the world.

How-to Tips for Aspiring Writers:

I think one of the most important pieces of advice that I could offer to someone looking to get started in publishing is: don't self reject.

It sounds silly, but it's something that I see happening routinely. Someone will go to all the work to write a manuscript, and then won't send it in. They get themselves stuck in endless rounds of self-inflicted edits, or come up with a host of reasons why they can't send out a query letter yet. Why they can't respond to a request for the submission, why they can't complete the revise and resubmit letter that they got.

Oftentimes, this behavior comes from a fear of rejection. As long as you hold on to the book, as long as you don't seek that final answer from the publisher or the agent, you don't have to know if the book is good enough to be published or not. But this is nothing more than self rejection, and it’s a bad habit to get into.

The last thing you want is to become the biggest barrier to your own success. If someone requests the manuscript, send it in. If it's finished, get that query letter together and send it out. If you get a revise and resubmit? Revise it and resubmit.

“I want that painting. It is my last Lost Mistress. My Lost Love.”
Alessandro Di Sione is renowned for being cold and unsentimental, but even he can't deny his grandfather's dream of retrieving a painting steeped in royal scandal. Yet the key to its return is the outspoken Princess Gabriella.
While traveling together to Isola D'Oro to locate the mysterious painting, Gabby is drawn to the man tortured by guilt from his past. Her innocence makes her untouchable, as Alex is convinced his Di Sione blood is tainted. But could their passion be his salvation?

  1. We are our own worst enemies, aren't we? I think it gets easier over time, but you have to go through a long period of trying to shut those doubting voices out!

Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss' beloved classic. The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous spirit. Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!



REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

#ChristmasInJuly #Win A Onesie Or Pajamas Of Your Choice! (US/CDN)

The most wonderful time of the year is back, (a little early)! It's Christmas in July!! You too can celebrate with a wonderful gift right here. UglyChristmasSweater.com has the funniest, traditional and branded goodies on the planet! Here is a sneak peek at a couple of things I personally love on their site.

Last year, I reviewed one of the sweaters. You can view that post here. It is easily my favorite holiday sweater. It's so warm and I love the quality of it. This year, I was asked if I wanted a onesie or pajamas to check out. You know I had to jump at the chance, knowing what great quality clothing they have.

I got the Grinch on my onesie! I got an extra large size, and before you go crazy knowing that is big for me, I don't like my pjs to be tight and constricting. I always go a size up on my night clothes. I must have been traumatized in a past life.... These Grinch pajamas are soooooo soft and comfortable. The best part is that it's A/C season so I can actually wher…
