As some of you know, in addition to this blog, I’m also a contributor at a literary website called Gliterary Girl. It’s an excellent website focusing primarily on women authors, book reviews and the publishing industry. Let’s be honest: I’m not a woman — and I’m pretty sure they know this. Assuming, of course, they are aware I am posting on their website. If not, they’ll find out soon because, in addition to being the only male contributor, I am also participating in Gliterary Girl’s Holiday Blog Hop.
As 50 Shades character Anastasia Steele, would say: “I’ve never done this before, so I should probably stretch first.”
In my case, however, the only stretching required will be revealing my personal holiday wish list. This is technically a stretch for me because I haven’t made a Christmas wish list since I was 9, when I asked for a fully posable Six Million Dollar Man action figure and received, instead, a more financially prudent and fully bendable six dollar art mannequin.
I’m sure at this point, many of you are asking: How much buttered rum has Ned consumed and why hasn’t someone put him to bed?
If not, then you may be asking: Aside from revealing he played with dolls as a boy, what is the point of this post?
In addition to my need to clarify that I played with ACTION FIGURES, not dolls, my point is you can get some totally FREE STUFF and discover some terrific authors by participating in this Holiday Blog Hop by visiting the author websites at the end of this post.
I am also giving away a free, signed copy of my book, Humor at the Speed of Life, in a random drawing from the comment string on this post. Although sending me delicious homemade cookies wouldn’t hurt.
But wait! As if that wasn’t enough, there is also a Grand Prize being given away by Gliterary Girl Media, which includes:
• A Book Bag Filled With Swag and Books (Some autographed)
• A Gliterary Girl Media Holiday Book Sampler
• Your Choice of Two of the Books Within the Sampler
• $25 Gift Card
• GGM Personalized Notepad
All this by just visiting the Holiday Blog Hop.
As for my Christmas wish list, I’m a simple man with simple tastes:
1) A Harley (Nothing fancy; as I said, I’m a simple man)
2) Two round-trip plane tickets to Spain so I can take my wife to see the land of her ancestors (Again, because of my simple tastes, economy class is fine)
3) Lots of participation in this Holiday Blog Hop (Because, like me, it’s really simple)
4) A Six Million Dollar Man action figure (Okay, not that simple but I still want one)
I hope you’ll take the opportunity to visit the link below and discover some new authors, win some gifts and possibly the Grand Prize from Gliterary Girl, as well as win a copy of my new book by leaving a comment on this post. The Gliterary Girl Holiday Blog Hop begins today and lasts through Dec. 20. That means there’s plenty of time to visit by clicking the link below.
And also to get those cookies in the mail…
