One-Year Blogging Anniversary ~ Thank You & Giveaway’s


1 year blog anniversary-angelsgp
Yep, we are ONE.
Well we turned one on Jan 3rd. I completely forgot I stared blogging back in January 2014 ^_^ 
I’ve got some Thank You’s to send out and of course what’s an anniversary with out some Awesome Giveaway’s!
Yes, I love giveaway’s and I love giving to you my Amazing Fantastic Followers. 



First and foremost blogging wouldn’t be as much fun as it is without my Followers. Thank you to each and everyone of you for following me. I don’t know why you do, but I am thankful to have each and everyone of you and hope you will continue to support the blog!




Yes, I would not have had the experience’s I had without some Amazing and Talented Authors. They helped get me off the ground by spreading the word on social networks, gave me some great opportunities, and experiences that at times made me go, Oh My God!

Valerie TwomblyValerie Twombly – She was a new to me author in 2014. I had never herd of her until I found her on one of the many book FB parties going on. She gave me some of my Fantastic followers by sharing my new blog with her fans and also gave me the opportunity to experience her Guardians, Demon Heat, and Spanish Nights series. I also got my first quote on one of her books, Spanish Nights “A spellbinding world full of magic and romantic suspense. It was an exciting experience, especially with me not even being a year old. I never thought I’d get quoted! Thank you, Valerie, for the fabulous opportunity’s and continued support.

Setta Jay –  She was a new to me author and just getting started herself in 2014 with Setta JayThe Guardians of the Realms series. I have no idea how she found me, but I am glad. She gave me some of my Fantastic followers by sharing my new blog with her fans and also gave me the opportunity to experience her Guardians of the Realms series. I am now a fan and in love with her oh so sexy Guardians! Thank you, Setta, for the continued support and opportunities to enjoy your books!

Nancy_Corrigan_AutherNancy Corrigan – She was a new to me author, although I’ve had her Royal Pride series on my TBR list. I was excited to receive an email with the opportunity to review Favorite Obsession back in April 2014. I have no idea how she found me, but I was happy to meet a new author and receive the opportunity. I am now a fan! Thank you, Nancy, for the continued support and opportunities to read your books!

Showalter_Gena_colorGena Showalter – Ok, I’m a HUGE fan of Gena’s. I love, love, her Lords of the Underworld and Angels of the Dark series. I was in fan girl heaven when I was contacted to participate in reviewing The Darkest Touch. (I squealed like a kid in a candy store.) This was a major highlight for me, especially with me being new to the blogging world. Thank you, Gena, for the fabulous opportunity!

Terry SpearTerry Spear – Another one of my favorite authors. This lady knows how to write shifter stores. Yes, she also writes about Highlanders and Young Adult, but I’m a HUGE fan of her Heart of the Wolf, Heart of the Jaguar, and Heart of the Cougar series’. I was so suppressed to receive an email back in March 2014 from Terry, personally to review Cougar’s Mate, her first book in a new series Call of the Cougar. I of course said YES! (Another fan girl moment.) Thank you, Terry, for giving a new blogger and fan an amazing opportunity!




So, I have admired these bloggers, have been, and continue to be a follower. These ladies have been helpful in answer questions, sharing content, and showing support! Thank you!
