Giveaway x3 (US/INT), 18+ Blog Hop: We’ll show you ours if you’ll tell us yours…

The 18 & Over Giveaway Hop Hosted is by Bitten By Paranormal Romance & Getting Naughty Between the Stacks.  The hop will run from 12:01 AM March 22nd through 11:59 PM March 25th, 2012.

March is the month for getting lucky, and we are about to get NAUGHTY up in here!

Now I know we do some Young Adult reviews and tours here on GraveTells, but this hop is for the erotica crowd.  The excerpt you’re about to read is naughty.  The entry requirement is naughty.  Even the prizes are naughty.  So if you’re under 18, close your browser or navigate to another site.

Yes, right now.

No, I’m not kidding.

You have been duly warned!











All adults here now?  Ok.

Here’s how this shindig is gonna go down.

First, I’m going to make an announcement about some big news for one of our reviewers, and then she’s going to give you a taste of her wicked tongue.  Not like that.  Get your mind out of the gutter.  Or don’t… *grin*

Second, I’m going to show you the prize, so you can drool over it.  I think it… they… are pretty awesome, and we’ll have not just one winner this time, but three!

Finally, fill out the Rafflecopter to enter win one of our awesome prizes, then you’re going to leave us a post telling us one of YOUR naughty secrets.  You thought you were getting off easy, but OH no no!  Now, I don’t want any profanity or nastiness – let’s keep it (relatively) clean and humorous.  Yes I will censor you if you’re over the top.  Don’t make me do it.  But DO have fun with it!  *grin*

The News!

My good friend and fellow GT reviewer Captain Dirty Pants (aka author Jennifer James) is a pretty fan-freaking-tastic erotica author and has just signed her first book deal with Decadent Publishing!  *confetti*  You people crazy enough to purse this career path have some serious determination and drive, because the amount of rejection the typical author sees is ridiculous.  How you all stay sane (what with the voices in your head and the people telling you said voices aren’t good enough) is beyond me, but The Captain stuck it out and will soon officially be a published author.   So to celebrate (and to tease you, because that’s what she does best), Jenn is sharing an excerpt from one of her works-in-progress, Marked.  Take it away, Jenn!

He-llo all you naughty erotica fans! Who doesn’t love some make you squirm in your seat, so hot you can’t wait to jump your lover word porn? (Well, may be boring people. And people without anyone to jump. They’re just too frustrated to enjoy things.)

Love Kinection is about two sexy geeks, Abby and Tom. Abby’s nursing a betrayed and broken heart; Tom is an ex-military IT superman with especially talented …appendages. *eyebrow waggle*. Love Kinection is loaded with geek humor, heart, and heat. It should be released this summer. (And how excited am I to be able to say that?! It’s too cool.) Unfortunately, I can’t share an excerpt from it with you today because I’m in the middle of editing. 🙁 (Boo!) However, The Captain’s mind is a place that sex seems to happen a lot. (Yay!) Lucky for you I generally have a computer nearby. So, I have something else to share. I’m a giver. 😀

I’m happy to give you guys a taste of a short story I’ve got out on submission right now. It’s called Marked, and features a pair of super sexy werewolves – Jack and Kayla. Kayla took off when she spazzed over her feelings for Jack. But she’s back now and ready for some serious action. 😀 Here’s a lovely little snippet for you guys. Enjoy!

The Prizes…

Prize #1 (US ONLY) – Advanced Reader Copy paperback: Untouched (Amoveo Legend series #2) by Sara Humphreys

Untouched is the second installment in Sara Humphreys’ Amoveo Legend series, and doesn’t hit shelves until April 3rd.  What we’re giving away is our physical advanced review copy, which is in EXCELLENT shape.  Practically new.  I will do my best to get this to you ASAP once the contest ends, so you can enjoy it as a true “advanced” copy.  It’s a great read!  My review will be posting next week, and Ms. Humphreys will be visiting us as well, so be on the lookout for that!

Pssst – Wanna pre-order it just in case you don’t win?  Click on the picture above for your Amazon Kindle buy link and you can have it in your hot little hands as SOON as it releases!

Prize #2 (US ONLY) – Rio Rosso “Freedom” Handcuff Wine Glass Charms (Set of 2)

Rio Rosso is my alter-ego crafty side, my way of releasing all that edgy creative energy.  This prize is a set of two (2) wine charms made from chain, handcuffs, and a little snazzy sparkle.  The Rio Rosso Etsy store isn’t much to look at right now (because, honestly, there just aren’t enough hours in the day), but I have several sets of wine charms just waiting to be photographed and listed, as well as several pieces of chainmaille jewelry, and I plan to make more of these handcuff charms, so just bookmark my store and in case you don’t win, you can always snag some later.  =)

Visit Rio Rosso on Etsy here!

Prize #3 (US & INTERNATIONAL) – $10 Amazon Gift Card

Who doesn’t want free money?!  And Amazon sells pretty much anything you could ask for, so you can either buy yourself some smutty new book crack or you can buy yourself some smutty new toys.  Your choice.  There’s really no wrong option here.  *grin*

How to enter…

1) Leave a comment telling us something naughty about yourself. It can be a secret fantasy, the craziest place you’ve had sex, a wardrobe fetish… this is wide open to your interpretation, so don’t be afraid to get creative!  I also encourage you guys to respond to other people’s comments.  Let’s have fun with this!  Remember, keep it relatively clean and profanity free (FYI if it’s a word I’d normally use in a review, I don’t consider it profanity, so feel free to use that as your decision metric =) ).

NOTE: Even though there are three entry Rafflecopters, you only need to leave your comment ONCE. No need to do it three times to enter for all three prizes.

2) Sign up to receive GraveTells email updates, then fill out the Rafflecopter widgets below (note that there are THREE of them, so only sign up for the prizes you want and/or qualify for)!  If you’re already an email subscriber, all you need to do is fill out the Rafflecopter and provide the email you subscribed with.  That’s it!  =)  For extra chances to win, you can also like us on Facebook, tweet about the giveaway, etc.  Here come the Rafflecopters (OH NOOOOOES, not the Raaafflecooopters!!!)…

Note #2: My site CSS doesn’t play nice with Rafflecopter’s widget settings right now, so you’re going to see a wall-of-white.  Just click and drag over the widget to highlight and see what’s hidden.  It’s a mystery!
