St. Patricks's Day Blog Hop (1 Day Hop)


Many thanks to Carrie Ann Ryan for putting this hop together and what an awesome hop it is with over 100 blogs participating! Y'all are gonna want to hop as many of these sites as possible. There are two awesome Grand Prize gifts being given away. 

Many big thanks to Carrie and her awesome friends for pooling together for these:
Grand Prize 1: Winner's Choice of a Kindle Fire or Nook Tablet
Grand Prize 2: Winner's Choice of a $90 Amazon or Barnes&Noble Gift Card




And this is where I talk a little about St Patrick's day and how I celebrate it. Prior to this Diva moving to the hills of Tennessee aka the Boonies I had always lived less than an hour from New Orleans. Twenty four hours a day, seven days a week, three hundred and sixty five days a year of fun times to be had. My friend Marilyn and I (we're both Italian!) would go to the Irish-Italian parade every year. It's a good time to be had for sure. The people on the floats are tossing out potatoes and cabbage along with Mardi Gras beads. I love high school marching bands, the beat of the loud drums the rhythm of the music they create with the various instruments. All this good time fun can be found near plenty of bars serving up green beer. 

I now live in the Boonies and after that bit of reminiscing I see a trip south in my future! So lets move on to the giveaways so I can go pack a bag ;)

I think I got a little more creative with luck and Irish this hop. One book has luck in the title, one has a green cover and Irish characters, and the other got such an overwhelming response of people wanting it on the last hop I'm gonna give it away again.

Entering is simple, leave me a comment with email address. If you are international please note this in the comment. If you are interested in all 3 books that is fine with me or you can specifically tell me the ones you are interested in. You do not have to follow me, but it is appreciated. I do follower giveaways at each hundred mark. 

As always you can click on the book and get redirected to goodreads.com to find out more information about the book.





















Luck Be a Lady and Shadow Bound are looking for homes in the US. They are both mass market paperbacks.


Blood Bonds is an eBook that will be coming from amazon.com. This book is eligible for US & INT.

I will announce the winners on Sunday March 18.
