New Year's Blog Hop!


Happy New Year! welcome to the New Year's Blog Hop!!  




Ahhh.  Another new year.  Hopefully, we really didn't fall over the fiscal cliff (and never have to hear the words 'fiscal cliff' ever again).  The next year is likely to be a sort of transitional one for me, but whatever comes I will try to face it with aplomb.  Or at least without going completely insane.  Here's wishing you a fantastic 2013!




Please check out the first two books in the paranormal romance/urban fantasy Coursodon Dimension Series 
At $2.99 each in eBook format, they are a great addition to that new eBook reader you got for the holidays!





Meet Hailey - possessed by an otherworldly being who was trapped in her Kindle.
Hailey Parrish is quick-witted, irreverent, and hasn’t had a date in three years. She only wanted an eBook reader because her collection of paperbacks threatened to take over her small living space. Little did she know that the "special offers" that prompted the purchase included much more than a reduced price in exchange for a few ads. The device came pre-loaded with the essence of Sebastian Kess, an erudite womanizer with magical abilities from a parallel dimension. When she inadvertently releases him and he inhabits her body, she finally has a man inside her, just not in the way she imagined. And soon her predicament introduces her to yet another supernatural, the handsome could-be-the-man-of-her-dreams Alex Sunderland. Can Alex and Hailey find a way to return Sebastian to his own body, stay one step ahead of the criminals who want to keep him where he is, and not lose their sense of humor?

What would you do if you discovered there was a parallel dimension?

Hailey Parrish used to be an average, everyday human. Boring, in fact. After being possessed by Sebastian Kess, a magically inclined enforcer from the parallel dimension Coursodon, her life took a decidedly less mundane turn. Besides coming to grips with the existence of supernatural beings, she risked her life helping Sebastian and her heart falling for his protégé, Alex Sunderland. Now, Hailey has to deal with the bit of arcane power that Sebastian left behind when he returned to his own body and try to stay out of the crossfire when an unknown assailant seeks revenge against Alex.

  22. We are very low key around our house. We have friends over, the kids play, the adults play board games and try new drinks. Lots of food, laughter, and fun. Not to mention, the doggy gets lots of attention from everyone.

    Happy New Year.

  25. No resolutions or traditions for me this year, Hubby and I stayed at home this year, we had a nice evening with the fire place going, I had a glass of wine and about 8:30 hubby wanted to watch Batman Rising. It ended just in time before the New Year for our New Year Kiss, which by the way was interupted by our 3 big dogs who jumped up on the couch with us - LOL They were scared from the loud noises coming from the fireworks going off outside - LOL It was funny but was all good, we just laughed and realized how much love we have in our lives.

    Happy New Year

  53. My New Years resolution is to get out of these two casts so I can walk down the aisle on my wedding day (in April 2013) without the aid of a wheelchair. I fell on the ice on Wed Jan 9th and broke both of my ankles. So not the great start to the New Years that I wanted.

    Thanks for participating!
