Tantalizing Tuesday

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Got your green on today?

Wish I could've found a hunk "dressed" for today, but I'm sure this will do ;-)

Wanna see how far that zipper goes, huh? *evil laugh*

Fantasy Friday

Along with my weekly Tantalizing Tuesday I've started, I've decided to start a Fantasy Friday. Writing the Dragon Rider series and other fantasy type stories, I discovered that I get inspired by fantasy pictures/artwork...and I've got a folder full of them. I thought I'd share them. Most of these I've had for quite a while and many sent to me by friends as inspiration, so I don't know the creators or have a link back to them.

Maybe one day I'll have a golden dragon in my Dragon Riders series.

Keep Faith - New chances could soon arise.

Reviews for A Gift Worth Sharing

Do you ever google yourself? Ever find anything interesting?
Well, I google myself (and books) at least once a month. This is usually how I find reviews for my books. And yesterday, I found not one, but two reviews for my December release at Loose-id - A Gift Worth Sharing.

5 Angels from FAR!!
"A Gift Worth Sharing is a wonderful story about love, trust, commitment, and healing. - There was a few intriguing sex scenes yes, but the lines of communication they could open seemed to grasp my attention more than the rest of the book." ~NeNe

"A Gift Worth Sharing is one of those rare books that really delves into the emotional ramifications of a threesome, which I thought was very refreshing." ~Cassie

I also posted on Worlds of Mayhem today after a long absence.

Tantalizing Tuesday

I'm looking into new avenues to keep a more steady schedule at blogging ... and possibly more traffic. So I'm introducing Tantalizing Tuesdays.
The definition of tantalize: to torment with, or as if with, the sight of something desired but out of reach; to tease; To excite (another) by exposing something desirable while keeping it out of reach.

So here's your first tease *evil laugh*

Disappointments can often be the start of something new.

Winners and a chance to win books from Dakota Cassidy

Thank you everyone for the wonderful birthday wishes and entries. I enjoyed reading all the wishes you all have. Those of you who want to travel, can I stow away in your suitcases? lol

I had a great day. Spent it with 2 of my 3 granddaughters and husband. Got some neat gifts too, but I think my favorite was my GPS. My kids have named it Carmen the Garmin. LOL It will come in handy when I travel this summer.

Okay, enough fun. My number randomizer (aka, twin sons - they LUV doing this) have picked two winners. Each will receive one of my e-books (their choice).

Congratulations to:
Kris Marsden
Stacey (dragonmagic)

I will email you personally as soon as I post this.

Also, Dakota Cassidy is giving away a signed copy of this week's release; The Accidental Human, along with buying the winner 2 other books!
I've read many of her e-books and fell in love with The Accidental Werewolf.
Accidently Dead and now, her latest is on my TBR list.
And hope to meet her at RT in April. She's such a hoot and makes me laugh.

Anyway, just stop by Amberkatze's Book Blog and all of the details are in Dakota's post. It's open until March 8th (4pm CET)

Have a wonderful week!

Impromptu Birthday Contest

Come Monday, I'm officially one year older *sigh* I can't believe how fast a year has gone by. I guess that saying is true: Time goes faster as you age.

So as a gift to myself, I'm giving away one e-book of choice to the winner.

I'll even make it easy for you. Drop me an e-mail at marty@martyrayne.com and tell me if you could have anything for your birthday (no matter the cost), what would it be? Get them in by 11:59pm EST Monday, March 2nd or it will turn into a pumpkin. lol

I'll be out most of the day so I'll pick two winners (in a drawing) on Tuesday, March 3rd.

Also, just a side note: I've completed the first draft to Dakota Knight's story. (m/m) Pending title is Never Too Late. I'm currently working on the edits and should have it off to my editor by Tuesday night and we'll see if it gets accepted.

I'm blogging Monday at Slash and Burn Blog and will be dropping off an excerpt from Never Too Late (unedited). So stop by and enjoy some man-luv *drool*

Also, my muse has hit the road running on a new story that takes place on a cruise ship. It's a menage a trios (m/m/f) that has aliens, bounty hunters, jealousy, and of course some hot sex scenes. :P No title as of yet.

Also, have started another story that involves 3 friends who take a vacation and end up finding their true loves on an island. It's paranormal, so you can imagine the fun I'll have pairing these 3 women.
