New Monthly Blog Post

I've decided I need to do more giveaways to my readers. Now I don't have a large backlist, so I think exposing my readers to my favorite authors is the way to go. But, how do I do that in a different way than everyone else? Book reviews are already all over the internet, which is a good thing. However, sometimes when I get into a good book it only takes one crappy character to ruin the whole experience. I wish there was a list of characters to look out for, good and bad, rather than just books.

Now there will be something akin to that on my blog. Once a month I'm going to do a character review rather than a book review. Then one lucky commenter will win that book. Easy as pie, right? So my first task is creating the book list. I read many different genres: horror, romance (ALL types), historical fiction and literature. However, since I'm a paranormal and erotic romance author, I think I'm going to start with one of those. Here's where you come in. Give me your wish list of books you want to know more about. I'd like to have my first post up n the next couple of days so I need some suggestions please.

Road Trip Soundtrack

Last weekend I took a road trip with my girls and nephew to San Antonio. We headed along Interstate 10 listening to Houston's familiar radio stations until, somewhere around Schulenburg, they finally faded out. My wonderful hubby had installed a new radio in my Suburban a couple of months ago, but unfortunately none of the auxiliary options work. No CD player, no IPOD connection...nothing. So, short of having the kids sing the rest of the way (I wanted to make it there with my sanity intact) my only option was to hit seek until we found something suitable...and discovered there are a plethora of country and Spanish music stations in Texas.

Luckily we did in fact find a few tunes we could all tolerate and even some we could sing along with. That got me thinking about what the perfect soundtrack would be for a good road trip. Here is what I came up with, in no particular order:
Rollin' by Limp Bizkit
Waiting for the End by Linkin Park
Move Along by The All-American Rejects
Like a Stone by Audioslave
What the Hell by Avril Lavigne
I like It by Enrique Iglesias
Epic by Faith No More
Fully Alive by Flyleaf
Now I know that's not nearly all of them, just the ones I came up with off the top of my head. So, what do you think? Is there any particular song or artist you love to hear while driving? Post your thoughts to be entered into the Fool for Romance contest, as well as for one of my prize packs!
