Read-a-Thon!!!! Woohooooo Baby :o)

This Friday, January 30th, is a day I've been looking forward to for a long time: A guilt-free reading day wooooooohoooooooooo!! Okay, so I'm pretty excited about it :) But let's face it 12hrs of straight reading sounds like bliss and matter fact I ordered my new Kindle with my Christmas gift cards just in time for this special occasion. Sooooooooo, I plan on staying in my PJ's and stocking up on junk food for my fun-filled day. I hope all of you can join us on this fantabulous day. Below is the list of books I hope to read that day.

1) Dark Days by C.A. Kunz (Eeep I've been waiting for this book forever!!!)

2) A Touch Mortal by Leah Clifford (This book was given to me and I'm so excited to read it.)

3) Mortal Obligation by Nichole Chase (Can't wait to sink my teeth into this one LOL.)

4) Sweep by Cate Tiernan (Shucks four books may push me over the 12hr mark but that's a risk I'm willing to take hehehe.)

Woot Woot Nichole Chase!!!

My good friend Nichole Chase and I decided it would be a wild kooky idea to do each other’s blogs on the same exact day. We thought it would be crazy cool since both our books will be released on the same day (eeeek). We each came up with five questions and traded them with each other, so we would have 10 questions in all. For those that don’t know who Nichole Chase is; she is the talented author of the much talked about book Mortal Obligation. Her second book in the series Mortal Defiance will be coming out on December 15th and is highly anticipated!! If you haven’t added Mortal Obligation to your TBR list you need to NOW (Hehehe was that a little too bossy????). Soooo, without further delay here is Nichole’s fabulous interview (and just so you know her answers are way cooler than the ones I did on her blog) J

If your life was a movie, what would be your theme song? And who would play you in the movie?
 Shake it out by Florence + The Machine, no doubt. I love that song! It’s a feel good song, that leaves you wanting to dance and get over your issues. As for who should play me? Hm. It needs to be someone goofy, that can dance around the house with their toddler, and then sit up until 3 a.m. to write a book. I always pictured Sandra Bullock. But, maybe Zoey Deschanel. After watching her in the New Girl, I think she might be able to manage my zaniness! 
I think that our choices in cartoons affect who we are when we grow up ;) What was your favorite as a child?
Gah! So many to choose from! Duck Tales, Gummibears (Seriously, both of those theme songs ran through my head while typing that), SheRa, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. But, I think it’s safe to say that I loved Rainbow Bright the most. I always had a thing for a cartoon where the girl was the one kicking butt and taking names! ;)
If you were stuck on a deserted island and could only choose one fictional character to keep you company, who would it be? (Make sure you mention what book or movie the character is from!)
 So, there are lots of characters that would make great island inmates. I’m going to totally sound like a superficial jerk, but I have to go with Thor. See, he could catch food, build shelter, do all sorts of things with that hammer of his, and the best part would be the hours of entertainment of watching him run around half dressed. See, I’m covering my basis here. Food, shelter, and entertainment. What else does a girl really need?
What is your dream vacation?
I love to travel. Even car trips to the next state are fun for me! But, my dream vacation is a month in Ireland. I want to stay in adorable little cottages, castles, and B&B’s all while visiting some of the most beautiful scenery and meeting lovely people. Okay, so I might be idealizing it a little, but I really want to go. I NEED to go. And I will. Eventually.
In light of the holiday season, what is your big, selfish Christmas wish? (We all want world peace and for everyone to be well fed! At least, I hope we all want that!!!!)
To win the lottery! Ha! Maybe I should buy a ticket. Can’t win if I don’t…
If  you had to eat the same meal for an entire month what would it be?
 Homemade burritos. Honestly, it would take at least a week and a half before I got tired of them.
If you had to pick your weapon of choice to deal with zombies, what would it be?
  A really sharp shovel. It has reach and something pointy at the end. But to be honest, I would  rather have   a gun and carry the shovel on my back like a sword.
If you had to cover a distance of 26.2 miles, would you rather run backwards, skate blindfolded,   ride a tricycle or cover the distance in Fred Flintstone’s car?
I don’t think I would fit on a tricycle, and Fred’s car looks heavy. I would skate, but being blindfolded just seems dangerous. So, I guess that I would run backwards and look over my shoulder the whole way!
What scares you most spiders, snakes, big animals or people with bad breath?
Spiders don’t really scare me. As long as I can see it, then we’re good. For the same reason snakes don’t really scare me. Big animals don’t really frighten me either. I mean, if I was staring down an angry grizzly bear, that would be scary, but just being around them? Not so much. However, bad breath? Terrifying! You can’t do anything about it without hurting their feelings, and I hate that!
Have you ever peeked at your Christmas presents early? When and how often?
When I was very, very, very little, I hunted down my Birthday and Christmas presents. Once I was old enough to realize that doing that killed the fun and surprise I stopped doing it. Now, I hate it when I guess my present. I like being surprised!

Eeeeeeek It's Blog Hop Time

The Ascended Blog Hop
The time has finally come for The Ascended Blog Hop. I am super excited that I was able to talk/coerce so many great blogs into being a part of my 24 days blog hop.
Each blog will be doing different things to help keep things from being bland, since I don’t want to bore you (Hehehe).
Now for the good stuff the prizes:
1)    Regular prizes (boring): Every 3 days, I will pull the names of people that have left comments on the previous 3 blogs and will do a random drawing for an ebook of one of The Saving Angels books. Over the course of the 24 day blog hop 8 ebooks will be given out.
2)    Grand Prizes (woot woot): For every person that leaves a comment on one of the blogs they will be entered in to win a signed poster of one of my book covers. 3 posters in all will be given out (one of each of the book covers). I will also be giving away a signed set of all three books so you will have 4 different chances to win a grand prize. Extra entries will be given out for every blog you leave a comment on, so if you visit all 24 blogs you will have 24 entries into the grand prize drawing (eek).
Easy peasy right?? I can’t wait to see you guys at the different stops. I’m curious to see what you think of some of the stuff I have in store. Listed below is links to all the blogs The Ascended Tour will hit:
