Memorial Day for the Win!

Happy Memorial Day everyone! It's a holiday in the States, and the start of another great week everywhere, including here in Gini Land! So, let's get to it, shall we?

First up, as my Hook Me Up! subscribers already know, there's another great review of "Touched by an Alien" at Queen of the Frozen North. The reviewer won a copy of "Touched by an Alien" from The Galaxy Express, so head over to see what she has to say about it and show some Alien Collective love.

Next up, the June polls at the Blog with Bite are closed...and "Touched by an Alien" is the June adult selection! For those who are going to participate, head over, read the (easy) rules, and go to town! The YA choice looks very cool, too, btw, for those of you who are up for doing two books in June.

While we're talking about winning, the winner of the copy of "Touched by an Alien" has been announced at Tempting Persephone. Head over to offer your congrats and/or envy!

Speaking of winning, the winner of the Week Three Hook Me Up! Exclusive contest is......*drum roll please*...Brooke Nelissen! Congrats, Brooke! Check out the Win Stuff page and let me know what free gift you want!

By the way, let me just say that I was gratified to see so much love for Martini shown by so many of my Hook Me Up! subscribers -- about 2/3rds of the entrants picked him. However, the rest chose the same character our winner chose.

Week Three Question: Who is your favorite male character in "Touched by an Alien" and why?

Brooke's Answer: Do you even need to ASK me that?! LOL. READER. Because he's hot and sassy and totes Kitty's soul mate and I keep the hope alive for some Reader/Kitty/Insert hot guy here action down the road.

The Week Four, aka Final Week, question will be heading to all Hook Me Up! subscribers shortly.'re not on Hook Me Up! yet? Well, look at what you're missing out on -- getting the news first and fastest, exclusive contests, and much more. Getting on is easy: send an email to with "Hook Me Up!" in the subject line and you'll be on the list!

There's more on this week's horizon, but for now, I have to get my bad self ready to go to a bar-be-que. But before I go, one last thing. If you are a veteran -- thank you. If you know a veteran -- thank them. And please take a moment today to remember all those who have died to keep our countries safe and free.

ROFL. You're safe, Sully. If it's done, it'll be in one-offs for fans (and down the don't get to do one-offs until your series is huge) and I'll make sure there's a McPig Advisory Warning. ;-D

Phew... Glad to hear it. I'll be keeping an eye out for the McPig Advisory Warning just in case though.
