a Friday funny / free book Friday

Going to try something a little different for a while, see how it goes. :silly:

In addition to our regular Friday Funnies, I’m going to start adding a Free Book giveaway each week.  We’ll start with a few of my own titles, but it’s really going to be a free-for-all of whatever I feel like giving away.  Could be something I pick up at a conference…or a book I just finished reading…or even some sort of novelty coffee table book that I think would be fun to share.

So after you’ve had a good laugh over this week’s Friday Funnies, scroll down to read more about Free Book Friday. :nerd:

Friday Funny



Free Book Friday

An ARC (advance reading copy) of THE BITE BEFORE CHRISTMAS (available September 28th).

To enter, simply leave a comment to today’s post that includes the code FBF—for “Free Book Friday,” of course—to let me know you’re interested in the drawing. 😉   (U.S. residents only to start, please.)  Then check back often because the winner will be picked & announced…later. :turtle:

P.S. The ARC doesn’t look like this; it isn’t nearly as pretty, but it’s still quite entertaining. 😎

    Love the lolcat type pictures. But I couldn’t place the first one :X
    I’m definitely interested in your book and the FBF. One, I love your writing, and two, it’d be perfect, as I have to write a blog post about Christmas/ holiday romances for Borders True Romance soon

      Hey, Lime, great to see you popping in. (I knew a Free Book offer would bring some lurkers out of the shadows. :fighterm: )

      And the top Funny is Hugh Jackman from Van Helsing…but the sparkle line is in reference to the Twilight books/movies where the vampires sparkle. (Yeah, right. :-/ ) *My* vamps in BITE even make snarky references about hat. LOL

    I love your new idea,FBF Who doesn’t like a free book, also I like your books. Your on top of my reading list.

    I love the LOL cat pictures those make my day.

    Now if I could indulge in a fantasy of sorts…my perfect weekend would include lots of wine and perfectly cooked food made by a trusty chef, Roma actually winning a game on Sunday [Please guys, seriously I’m begging here…on my knees and everything… :soccer: ] the FBF of Bite, because Christmas ain’t the same without vamps, then a nice trusty massage and more 😉 from my crazy gladiator. *sigh*

    Okay, I’m barely back from the fantasy but will return at any moment. Why? Because I truly do believe my FB friend Ashley was right when she said reality is for people who lack imagination.

    • Dee says:

      [and I hope I’ve entertained you all today… ;)]

    • Heidi says:

      Dee, I prefer the quote…from Lily Tomlin, I think???…about reality being for people who can’t afford medication. :X-P:

      And if ever you were going to indulge in flights of fancy about half-naked hotties…or sweaty sports hotties…The Dungeon is the place for it. :devil:

      • Dee says:

        Well, my favorite upon occasion is known for half naked and sweaty and to borrow from Spinal Tap….his on field enthusiasm is an 11.

        This “attraction” has even made my muse…Roman.

    Heidi–I soooo look forward to Friday Funnies with you. :-))

  5. Pamela Cayne says:

    Okay, I’m printing out the first photo not only because it’s spew funny, but because of Hugh. (And really, can’t we all use just a little more Hugh?)

    So glad everybody likes the idea of Free Book Friday…& is enjoying our Friday Funnies, too, of course. If I’d known it would reap so many lovely compliments about my books, I’d have started this sooner. 😉

    Btw, I’m probably not supposed to give any hints but there’s a little sumthin’ sumthin’ going on, &…well, can you guess who this author might be? http://smilefeelgood.blogspot.com/2010/09/announcement.html
