Marketing For Romance Writers Bloghop: Firsts! Feb. 10-13, 2013
The theme is “Firsts” — the first kiss, the first love, the first loss, whatever is first in the story. Join us for three days of fun excerpts, contests, and giveaways. Details about giveaways are on each author’s site.
Just click the ribbon and follow the trail. The ribbon will lead you through the entire hop. Get off anywhere you like. Explore, browse, check out other sites. When you come back to this page, or click the link on any of the authors’ sites, you’ll go to the next spot in your individual trail. How? It’s magic! (Okay, it’s really technology, but we’re authors, and we enjoy make believe. ^_^ Don’t you?)
Plus since it’s my first Bloghop, I’ll give one lucky commenter a free e-copy of SHADOW’S EDGE. Just make sure you leave your email with your comment and I’ll announce a winner on February 15th!
And to add to the First Theme–here’s a fun list:
First Drive in Movie: Star Wars with a double feature of Cars
First car: 1985 two door Chevette
First crush: Harrison Ford (come on, Han Solo had it all!)
First written work: It will never see the light of day, but I will say it was a young adult fantasy along the lines of Susan Cooper’s The Dark is Rising (the book, not the lame movie called The Seeker)

First Romance book: A Rose In Winter by Kathleen Woodiwiss
First Urban Fantasy: Circus of the Damned by Laurell Hamilton

Everyone fears what hunts in the shadows—especially the monsters…
It takes a monster to hunt one, and for Raine McCord, forged in the maelstrom of magic and science, she’s the one for the job. In a world where the supernatural live in a shadowy existence with the mundane, a series of disappearances and deaths threatens the secrecy of her kind and indicates someone knows the monsters are alive and kicking. Partnering up with the sexy and tantalizing Gavin Durand proves to be a challenge as dangerous as the prey she hunts.
When the trail points back to the foundation which warped Raine’s magic as a child, her torturous past raises its ugly head. Gavin and Raine sift through a maze of lies, murder and betrayal to discover not only each other, but the emerging threat to them and the entire magical community.
