St. Patrick’s Day Blog Hop FUN!!
Thursday, March 15th, 2012

I might not be Irish, but that doesn’t mean I won’t be celebrating St. Patrick ’s Day with a little cheer and a whole lot of green beer!

Today I plan to put on my greenest of green clothes, topped off with my funky hat and head into the city to celebrate.

But before I start my drinking games, I’d like to tell you about a St. Patrick’s Day Blog Hop and contest!   

For my own personal contest I’m going to give away a $25 Amazon gift certificate to one lucky winner!  For a chance to win all you have to do is leave a comment below and tell me what you do on St. Patrick’s Day.


Each author involved in the BLOG HOP  will be giving away a prize. Like a swag pack, gift cards, ebooks, print books, and so much more.


PLUS We have TWO Grand Prizes for TWO different winners! *gasp*


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


So you as a reader – what do you have to do? Well, come on over to these websites today and comment on as many as you want. The grand prize winners will be chosen at random from the commenters – meaning you can comment on EACH blog – meaning 120 entries to the grand prize.


So come on and play.  You know you want to.  For a full list of authors involved please scroll to bottom of post!



Seventeen year old Pride is a tracker—a werewolf with a hunger for blood. Taught to trick and to lure, she is the perfect killing machine.

Kept leashed in the cellar by a master who is as ruthless as he is powerful, Pride dreams of freedom, of living a normal life, but escape from the compound is near impossible and disobedience comes with a price.

When she learns her master intends to breed her she knows she has to run.

But Pride soon learns that if she is to survive in the wild, she must trust in the boy who promises her freedom, the same boy she was sent to hunt.

With life and death hanging in the balance the two find themselves on the run from the Paranormal Task Force—officers who shoot first and ask questions later—as well as her master’s handlers.

Can Pride flee the man who has held her captive since birth and find sanctuary in the arms of a boy who has captured her heart? Or will her master find her first?

To learn more about my Wolf’s Pride series go to or to purchase a copy go to Amazon Or Barnes and Noble

    I wear green on St. Patty’s Day so my nieces and nephew don’t pinch me. There is really no celebrations here for it. Maybe I will paint my nails green. 🙂 :mrgreen:

    Being Irish myself it’s always been a fun day for me. Used to be all about drinking and partying, but now it’s just about being with family and enjoying life. Good food, good beer, and good cheer.

    I rarely remember to wear green which makes for a painful day. Mostly, we visit my parents for corned beef and cabbage dinner.

    We don’t celebrate St. Patric Day in my country, so I don’t have anything personal to share. My knowledge comes from TV relations from other countries and is limited to drinking and singing people wearing funny hats. I think mostly it’s just an excuse to get drunk. However I like the other symbol of Ireland – clover.
    A four-leaf clover brings luck. I loved looking for them as a child.

    I do absolutely nothing for St. Patrick’s Day (and this year might even do less to recover from this hop LOL). Really as a kid I thought St. Patrick’s Day was awesome, but now, eh. So I’m kind of boring, I accept that.
