I Return to the Blogosphere with Gifts: Reading and Writing Giveaway

Oh my goodness, it’s been three months since I posted on here. What in the world happened to me, you might ask. Uh, school. School happened. I’ve hardly written anything at all, and I miss everything tremendously: writing, blogging, interacting with all of you. I think the break was good. College has dominated my life, and I needed to focus on that. However, I am ready to be back. I’m ready to write again. So, here I am!

Reading and Writing Giveaway

In the interest of maintaining both a steady presence here and a life outside the computer, I’m probably going to pull my posts back from once a week to 2-3 times a month. I’d rather take on a little bit and be consistent with that than try to cram everything together and utterly fail. I don’t want to do that to ya’ll or to myself.

So, in the next couple months or so, I have plans that include a series of short blurbs on Proverbs and (dun, dun, dun) another flash fiction challenge. Very excited to welcome everyone back with that!

As another welcome back, I’m also offering a giveaway, specially meant for all your readers and writers out there!

Michael Vey is a fourteen-year-old boy living in Idaho. The only thing special about him is his Tourette’s Syndrome, and some days he really wishes he didn’t have it. Everything changes for Michael, though, when he realizes that he has the power to use electricity and that there are more people like him. Created by an experiment at the hospital where he was born, Michael’s powers are not the only such ones on earth. And someone is trying to use these “electric children” to rule the world.

This is Book 1 of a seven-book series, and I have loved every one of the five books that are out so far. The plots are well-created, and the characters each have unique powers and motivations. I’d love to introduce one of you to this awesome series, too, so it’s the first part of my giveaway.

The second part is the soundtrack from How to Train Your Dragon 2. When I write, I prefer to have soundtrack music playing. It carries an emotion that is immensely helpful in setting up scenes. It is, after all, story music. I know that many of my readers also use soundtrack music, so I want to offer a CD that I have found to be particularly powerful. The soundtrack to How to Train Your Dragon 2 was composed by John Powell and is, in a single word, gorgeous. If you like soundtrack music, you will love this album.

This giveaway will run for a week and half. Enjoy!
