Almost time for Blogmania

Only a couple more days and Blogmania will be here. April 30th. This Friday. You will find tons of great blogs to explore, on all topics. And best of all? We're all giving away some great prizes. Each blog will have their own guidelines for their giveaway, so please read each one carefully. I've finally decided on my giveaway. In order to be eligible, all you have to do is become a follower. On the left side of the screen, there is a button with the Google symbol and the word Follow. On Friday I will move it up so that it is underneath the Blogmania badge. Click that button and become a follower. Easy, right? If you're already a follower (thank you very much), you're good to go.

So what goodies am I giving away? Good question. I'm calling it A Month of Sundays Relaxation Kit. A mouthful, I know. I call it this because I love to settle into a warm bubble bath, with flickering candles and read a great book. That is a little slice of heaven for me, and I hope it appeals to you too.

We'll start with 2 yummy candles from Colonial Candle. Then, while you're running your bath water, pour in some bubble bath from Bath and Body Works. Now that we've set the mood and gotten our water ready, what to read?

There are 4 Sundays in a month. Usually. So, 4 books it is. Which 4 books, you ask? Quite a selection, in several different genres. I'm a member of the Austin RWA chapter, even though I'm over here in Germany now. Recently, our chapter had a bunch of good news. 3 of our published authors were finalists for the RITA award. If you don't know what this is, the easy answer is that it's the Emmys of the romance writers world. A very big deal. So I will include all three of these books, plus a copy of my own that just came out last week.

The Christmas Present by Tracy Wolff
Not Quite a Husband by Sherry Thomas
Whisper of Warning by Laura Griffin
Stellar Heat by Scarlett Jameson

And, last but not least, if I've missed a crucial ingredient that you require for total relaxation, I'm also including a $25 Visa gift card.

Remember, all you have to do to be in the running is to become a follower. And as a teaser. I know a lot of you like the little glimpses I give to my time in Europe. I'm heading to Holland this weekend, so next week will be a European extravaganza!

What do you think of my prize? Interested?

One of my favorite ways to relax - reading in a hot bath. Great prize!

Yikes, Riley! I cannot compete with that!! What to do? What to do? It's gotta be something Texas--yes, I'm from Central Texas--the town with the outlet mall. Keep me in mind while you're residing in Germany--maybe we can become blog pals, you know, like pen pals. (That just came out--I've never heard of blog pals.) But we might try it! My e-mail--if you get lonesome for Texas-- Take care--good luck on Friday for Blogmania--I'll do the best I can. Celia

Great minds think alike, Gale!

Celia, if you live where I think you do, we were only about an hour apart for a while when I lived in Waco.

Fabulous idea! I love to read about folks more adventurous than myself. Consider me signed on! I look forward to seeing you around on Romance Divas and Savvy Authors. Your uplifting interview was a joy to read, by the way. ;)
