Prizes and 4th of July “When Sparks Fly Blog Hop” Is Here

St. Louis Arch Fireworks

Happy 4th of July America!

I’m here to celebrate this day with you even though I’m a Kiwi from New Zealand. I checked out exactly what Independence Day means to Americans and discovered the 4th of July 1776, was the day history was made as the United States declared its independence from Great Britain. I love that you celebrate this day with parades, shows, games, sports, bonfires, bells and all sorts of other whistles. And the 4th of July is right in the middle of your summer months. Wow. The perfect time to do so.

Although, with it being the middle of winter Down Under, I’m trying to ignore the rain, sleet and snow, and visualize a summer’s day so I can really get into that festive mood.

Hmm, I’ve almost got it.


Let me just crank up the heater a little bit more.

No, still not working.

I’ll just shut the curtains so I can’t see the frost covering the ground.

Yep, done. 🙂 I’m there.

Happy 4th of July everyone! Have loads of fun. And to continue the celebrations, if you leave a comment WITH YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS you can go into the draw for a chance to win an ebook copy of PROTECTOR. Simply let me know what you’re doing this 4th of July since I’ve never celebrated one before. 🙂 Also, the winner will be chosen on July 9th 2013, and I’ll contact you via email to organise your prize.

To love and protect…across worlds.

Eighteen-year-old Faith Stryker is prepared to leap out into the unknown world beyond her home shores of New Zealand to experience life. Only she never expected to encounter Magio, a planet with two warring countries, where its people reach adulthood at eighteen by coming into their strength and prophetic abilities. Only after Faith discovers she’s a Halfling–thanks to her warrior father she’s never met–does her own skill of forethought develop.

Peacio’s Prince Davio Loveria is sent to the young Faith Stryker by his grandfather, but not all goes as planned. Davio discovers Faith isn’t just a Halfling, she’s also his soul-bound mate–an intense relationship he cannot, nor will not, give up.

With two wars now waging…one of land and the other of the heart…can the young lovers find their place in the world?

    1. Hey Katie,

      Say hi to your sister-in-law and her hubby for me. Tell them to bring back some fine weather from America when they return. You have a great 4th of July. You’re in the draw for an e-copy of Protector.

  1. Hi Joanne, my husband and I went to a parade in Logan Iowa. The weather here was perfect at 75-80 degrees. Later we went to Arrowhead Campgrounds near Neola Iowa, where our youngest daughter and son-in-law and several of his family were camping. Her and I went bike riding and had planned to go fishing, but never managed to get around to it. It was a good time anyway.

  2. Thanks for the giveaway. Quiet 4th for us, just with family.

  3. I really didn’t do anything this year to celebrate. I did watch the fireworks all of my neighbors set off.

  4. Thanks for the hop! This year for the Fourth, I tried to get my son to watch the fireworks in my neighborhood. Unfortunately, he’s only three and thought that someone had a gun. He was too scared to enjoy himself, so instead we had cocoa and cuddled to keep him safe. Maybe next year!
