Happy Birthday Giveaway!

Woohoo! It's my birthday today and I'm celebrating by giving a few things away. But first you have to read through this post to get the clues to how to win.

At the beginning of August I spent several days in New Orleans for the Authors After Dark romance convention and had a wonderful time. I also came home with a ton of swag and goodies I want to offer to you all. So New Orleans is often used as the setting for vampire stories and movies or shows, and some of those dark narrow streets near Bourbon Street would be great places to find a vampire or ten. LOL While I was there I did see a shop that catered to all your vampire needs, including custom fang fittings. You can ask Erin Kellison and Jessa Slade, they were with me. :)

In honor of this heritage, I'm giving away a Jae Lynne Davies swag bag with two books and all the vampire goodies you could ever need to a lucky commenter. All you have to do is tell me what you love about vampires and leave me a valid email address or twitter handle so I can contact you if you win.

But wait, there's more. Not a huge fan of vampires? What about BDSM? While at Authors After Dark, I got to meet and room with Kallypso Masters, one of the premier BDSM authors out there. Some of her magic must have rubbed off on me (she says it's because I was sharing a bed with her) because I woke up one morning realizing I had to tie up one of my characters to work on trust issues. I know it seems counter-intuitive, but the person tied must have complete trust in the one tying to surrender so much.

So in honor of that magic, I'm giving away a BDSM author swag bag with goodies from Shayla Black, Lexi Blake, Sophie Oak, Eliza Gayle, Debra Hyde, Kate Pearce, and Kallypso Masters to one lucky commenter. Just tell me what your favorite fantasy toy is from a BDSM playroom and leave me a valid email address or twitter handle so I can contact you.

So there you have it. I love birthdays and I love giving gifts. And if you'd like to give me a gift (cuz it's a burning desire, I know, lol) you can follow my blog and run off to Amazon to pick up one of my books, Queen Bitch of the Callowwood Pack (available also at, or Her Devoted Vampire (available at

Be sure you are 18 years or older to win and void where prohibited. The giveaways are open Internationally and will run until 8 PM Pacific Time Wednesday September 5th 2012. The winners will be announced here on the blog on September 6th.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful Labor Day Weekend! And I'll leave you with this last happy thought:

Hey, I think snowflakes make great Birthday decorations! ;) Happy reading. :)


  1. I love vampires because they never get tired. *cough* And let's face it, drinking blood is sexy as hell. And my favorite toy from a playroom would have to be Ben Wa balls. No explanation required.

    Happy Birthday, bb!

  2. MMMMmmmm my favorite thing about vampires is they are just so sexual. Who couldnt be turned on by a vampire?

    oOooo Favorite toy...there are just soo many. Ropes are so versatile. You can tie up, or tie down. Retrain in many ways.. Would have to be Ropes

    Happy Birthday!!

  3. First, I hope you have had a terrific birthday!!!

    You pretty much picked my 2 favorite things to read: Vampires & BDSM.

    Favorite thing about vampires: They are so powerful and dangerous, yet sexy too!

    Favorite toy: Well, I love spanking benches but they are more equipment/furniture. So toy wise, I would have to go with a nice remote controlled vibrator. That way your Dom could change things no matter where you are and you would never know what was coming, lol ;)

  4. Can I have both in one? A vampire with a love for BDSM- bite me all you want ;) For me Vamps are just sexy they don't turn into a fur ball, they bite *shiver* and are strong and mysterious.
    Now as far as my fantasy BDSM toy... Just one? Damn that's hard for me... Mask - makes all you other senses heightened and you never know what's coming at you an when.
    HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Hubs bday was 9/2 mine is 9/17!! ;) yeah Virgos!

  5. Mmmm I'd have to say the strap cause lets face it if your there you probably need a spanking. Oh spanked by a vampire damn that sounds like fun especially if he bites ;)

  6. Congratulations Sarah! You've won the vampire goodie bag. And Dawn, you've won the BDSM goodie bag. Thank you to everyone who stopped by and wished me a happy birthday. It was great to see all of you. :)
