Happy 4th of July!!!!
Welcome to my post for the

July Blog Hop

I’m very happy to be one of the Author Sponsors for this fantastic hop! Many thanks to Queen Tutt for all of her hard work in putting this wonderful event together.

Did you know that at least one Darling male has served in every American war since the Revolution? Yes, it’s true, I come from a long line of Patriotic Americans and I couldn’t be prouder of that fact. In their honor, before we get started here, I’d like to offer you a few free pictures on this Happy 4th of July.

Now…to tell you a little bit about my favorite solider. His name is Ares, he’s more 4,000 years old, he’s incredibly built, ravenously sexual, and a bit hot tempered but I love him. I hope you will too. For this event, I’d like to give away one e-book set of my paranormal/erotica/romance/drama series “OF WAR”. This includes:

The Heart of War-Book #1 in the OF WAR Series

Child of War-A God is Born Book #2 in the OF WAR Series

Christmas Eve on Olympus-Short Story enhancement to the OF WAR Series

Clicking any of the above pictures will take you to their pages on my site and will provide you with blurb, trailers, excerpts, sexcerpts and more!

I’d like to giveaway TWO e-book sets of the above 3 books for this wonderful hop but that’s not all…

Child of War-Rising Son

This novel releases IN HARD COVER 9/21/2012

Let’s be clear…there are TWO SEPARATE GIVEAWAYS:
Giveaway#1-TWO sets of the OF WAR Series in e-book format–open Internationally
Giveaway #2-THE FIRST SIGNED HARD COVER of “Child of War-Rising Son” when it releases late in SEPTEMBER–open to US Residents ONLY

You may enter for one or both giveaways but please enter only once and specify which you are entering for in your comment.

For additional entries and chances to win please
1-“Like” the FaceBook Fan Page
2-Follow me on Twitter
3-Repost this link on Facebook or Twitter–please be sure to ‘mention’ me so I know you’ve done it

I will pick THREE winners at the end of the hop and notify each via the email address they leave. My very scientific method for doing this is to toss all of the entries into a Red Sox cap and draw out 3. Winners have 48 hours to respond.
