Breathless Press Scavenger Hunt Birthday Blog Hop

Welcome readers to the Breathless Press Scavenger Hunt Birthday Blog Hop!

We have nineteen blogs participating, and each author is giving away a prize, books, swag…you name it! Here on my blog, one lucky winner will receive a copy of my self-published novel Bounty, a vampire and zombie mash up set in the Old West. It’s the first book in my Venom Valley Series, and if you’re interested, you can “Like” the series Facebook Page HERE.

BUT…The main thing to remember is … It’s Breathless Press’s Birthday!

And have they got a gift for one lucky reader! Visit every blog in the hop, and locate the eighteen clues- that would be the blue letters. Create a list of each author whose blog you visit (Don’t forget to leave a comment so your visit can be verified!) and the blue letter you found on their post. Unscramble the message and send an email to olivia(dot)ventura(AT) with the decoded message, the list of participating authors, and what letter was found on which blog.

(Note: You are ONLY eligible to win if you visit & comment on ALL blogs!)

Your email makes you eligible to win a 50 BOOK LIBRARY! Fifty books of your choice from Breathless Press! That’s approximately a $150 value!

Okay, now that instructions are out of the way … scroll down to read my post. And don’t forget to look for the secret letter in BLUE.

Wicked, wicked ways are so much easier when you have a group to support you.

As part of the Story Orgy writer’s group, I write and post weekly free gay romance reads on my blog every Monday morning. Usually, these posts are parts of a longer story, and many times they tend to veer off into creepy, some might say outright frightening, directions.

I’m never sure if I’ve gone too far. Is it too much for a character to move into a new house only to discover that a most violent and horrible murder took place there years before? And what if I took it a step further? What if this new owner discovered that the spirit of that victim lingers in the house and communicates with him by leaving messages on the upstairs mirror? Is that going too far?

Apparently not, according to the members of my Story Orgy group. They encouraged me each week with comments and feedback on my novella, “Wicked Reflection,” available in the collection Word Play, Story Orgy: Volume 1, released by Breathless Press and available for purchase HERE.

My flash fiction story, “The Sum of His Parts,” will materialize in the Breathless Press collection Freaky Flashes, available for download on October 31, naturally. The Story Orgy group gave me some really good feedback on that quickie read, and I think you’re really going to enjoy every bit and piece of it.

I’d like to give a shout out of thanks to the Story Orgy group: Lee Brazil, Havan Fellows, Em Woods, JR Boyd, and Jade Baiser, as well as a big thanks to Breathless Press for putting our words into print. Happy Birthday, Breathless Press, here’s to many more years of sexy, sultry stories.

Did you find a blue letter here on my blog post? Be sure to make a note of it and leave a comment for a chance to win not only a copy of my paranormal e-book Bounty, but the grand prize of a 50 book library!

Hop on over to the other blog hop participants and look for the blue letters to spell out the secret message. Don’t forget to leave comments on each blog for a chance to win each blog participant’s prize as well as qualify for the Grand Prize! Good Luck!
