Happy Halloween and the start of a Giveaway!

I hope everyone has a safe and fun Halloween.
I miss the whole trick or treating thing and there was no party for me to attend this year *sigh* However, we went to Howl-O-Scream (at Busch Gardens, Tampa) last week and had a blast in the haunted houses! Loved seeing my boys scared. *evil laugh*
I meant to do this earlier this week, but getting multiple root canals done and life in general kind up mess up my plans... So I'm going to start this giveaway now, today and extend it to Wednesday Nov 4th.
I'll make it easy to be entered. Just email me a favorite costume or Halloween tradition between now and Midnight EST on Wed. Your name will be entered for random drawing.
The prize? A box of goodies, including a variety of books (however many the box will hold :D ).
Note: The goodie box is for US residents only. If the winner is outside the US, they will be eligible for an alternate prize.
So don't hesitate to send me an email at marty@martyrayne.com

Tantalizing Tuesday


It's still hot here in Florida. They are saying it will be 90 degrees on Halloween. So I thought I'd throw out a beach pic today. :P
Have a great week!

Technical difficulties...

Sorry, due to circumstances out of my control, my interview hasn't been posted at The Sweet Flag blog as of yet. So the giveaway is on hold. As soon as things get worked out I'll let you know.
Meanwhile, make sure you check back next week. Going to have a special giveaway for my readers starting on Monday.
Have a great weekend.

Interviews and a giveaway...

I realized yesterday that there was a lag in my Tantalizing Tuesdays and Fantasy Fridays. Sorry. I thought I had them done in advance (as I apparently wrote on my calendar) but come to find out I wrote the note a bit prematurely. My deepest apologies! I'll try to do much better. ^-^

Okay, on to some news. Sometime today an interview will be posted over at The Sweet Flag Blog (owned by my dear friend Jeanne Barrack) featuring ... ME! I'm also running a giveaway, so make sure you stop by and take a look and leave a comment to enter. You might actually learn something about me too. ;)

Also, don't forget that I'm also one of Featured Members at The Romance Studio's newest venture- The Rainbow Studio (Just for GLBT fiction). I've got an interview posted there along with some information on my latest book.

Also, I'm planning on running another giveaway next week in celebration of Halloween. So stay tuned...

Have a wonderful night. I'm off to Hallo-Scream with the family tonight to enjoy some scares in haunted houses and the roller coasters (at Busch Gardens).

We all need a laugh sometimes...

A laugh to brighten your day...

A retired corporate executive decided to take a vacation. He booked himself on a Caribbean cruise and proceeded to have the time of his life...until the boat sank!

He found himself on an island with no other people, no supplies, nothing,only bananas and coconuts. After about four months, he is lying on the beach one day, when the most gorgeous woman he has ever seen rows up to the shore. In disbelief, he asks her, "Where did you come from? How did you get here?"

She replies, "I rowed from the other side of the island. I landed here when my cruise ship sank."

"Amazing," he says. "You were really lucky to have a row boat wash up withyou."

"Oh, this?" replies the woman. "I made the boat out of raw material I found on the island. The oars were whittled from gum tree branches. I wove the bottom from palm branch and the sides and stern came from a Eucalyptustree."

"But, where did you get the tools?"

"Oh, that was no problem," replied the woman. "On the south side of the island, a very unusual stratum of alluvial rock is exposed. I found if I fired it to a certain temperature in my kiln, it melted into forgeable, ductile iron. I used that for tools and used the tools to make the hardware."

The guy is stunned.

"Let's row over to my place," she says. After a few hours of rowing, she docks the boat at a small wharf.

As the man looks to shore, he nearly falls out off the boat. Before him is a stone walk leading to an exquisite bungalow painted in blue and white.While the woman ties up the rowboat with an expertly woven hemp rope, the man can only stare ahead, dumb struck.

As they walk into the house, she says casually, "It's not much, but I call it home. Sit down, please. Would you like a drink?"

"No. No, thank you," he says, still dazed. "Can't take any more coconut juice."

"It's not coconut juice," the woman replies. "I have a still. How about aPina Colada?"

Trying to hide his continued amazement, the man accepts, and they sit down on her couch to talk. After they have exchanged their stories, the woman announces, "I'm going to slip into something more comfortable. Would you like to take a shower and shave? There is a razor upstairs in the bathroom cabinet."

No longer questioning anything, the man goes into the bathroom. There, in the cabinet, is a razor made from a bone handle. Two shells honed to ahollow ground edge are fastened on to its end inside a swivel mechanism."This woman is amazing," he muses. "What next?"

When he returns, she greets him wearing nothing but vines and flowers strategically positioned, and smelling of gardenias. She beckons for him to sit down next to her! . "Tell me," she begins suggestively, slithering closer to him, "We've been out here for a really long time. You've been lonely. There's something I'm sure you really feel like doing right now, something you've been longing for all these months?" She stares into his eyes and takes his hand in hers...

He can't believe what he's hearing. He swallows excitedly, tears start to form in his eyes, and he says, "You mean... I can check my e-mail from here?"
