March Madness Blog Hop

WINNER UPDATE: Amy S you are the winner of the contest on my blog (separate from the blog hop)! Congrats on winning a print copy of Primal Possession!

March Madness: That time of year when women across the country are left to their own devices during the NCAA basketball playoff tournaments. Sure we could do some early spring cleaning, catch up on laundry, organize closets, and throw out all the junk in the garage/attic, but where's the fun in that? So, instead of work, we thought we'd host our version of March Madness: A prize filled hop presented by some of the best names in romance. And we've made it easy for you to join in. Simply hop from blog to blog—the links are below—and “follow”, “Like”, “Friend” etc. the authors sites then leave a comment on their blog post. Each author is running their own giveaway as well as participating in the Rafflecopter Grand-Prize Giveaway of a Kindle Fire OR Nook Color, A $50 Amazon/B&N Gift Card, A $25 Amazon/B&N Gift Card, and 6 - $10 Amazon/B&N Gift Cards, as well as a “basket” of books. The event is live from March 5 – March 31st, 2013 to give you plenty of time to tour all the sites. 

There are some great reasons to love March so I thought I’d share some of my top reasons why I enjoy this month!

1. It’s my anniversary month and this year I’ll have been married 9 years!
2. It’s Dr. Seuss’s birthday month and who doesn’t like Dr. Seuss?
3. Spring officially starts in March and it’s one of my favorite seasons.
4. Daylight’s Savings starts which means more sun later into the evening.
5. St. Patrick’s Day, one of my favorite holidays, is during this awesome month.
6. Easter is celebrated on March 31, 2013.

What do you like about March?

For a chance at winning an extra prize in this blog hop, just leave a comment and your email address in the comments section and be entered to win a print copy of PRIMAL POSSESSION (open international). Winner will be announced in the comments section.

Happy Anniversary! Can't wait to get my hands on Mating Instinct. I have all the rest in the Moon Shifters series. I like March cause daylight savings time starts and we get another hour of daylight. I also like basketball so I'm happy to watch the March Madness tournaments.
Thanks for being part of the hop and for the chance to win.

I love March because it generally comes with warmer weather (although not yet), everything is blooming/growing, my sister's birthday, St. Patrick's day (which reminds me of my grandfather), and sometimes Easter falls in March. Thanks so much for the great post and the #MarchMadnessHop :)

Hmmm.. well I'm in school currently - so Spring Break takes place at the end of March for me! Woo :) (I'm a lot older than your typical student - so none of that Spring break craziness for me,hah! :D )

My best friend's birthday is in March; so that is one positive about the month. I used to love to watch March madness; but my Mom doesn't care for sports, which is fine, my Dad and I use to enjoy watching the Yankee's on TV; but after he passed, she prefers not to watch any sports, that is fine because I love to read! LOL!
Thank you for the contest!

Thanks for the giveaway!

First: my birthday is in March--not that it makes it my favorite month or anything remotely similar, but there it is.

Second: I'm confused--apparently I have to use facebook to log into the raflecopter? how come? (meaning, it's not like this in most of the other authors' blogs in the hop--though I may be mistaken on this one, as I'm techno impaired)

Third: just in case it does count:

Hi azteclady, I'm not sure about the rafflecopter bit as I'm techno challenged too...I just copied and pasted the html from the coordinator for the month long giveaway. I'm doing a separate giveaway here on my blog and you're entered (no need for the hashtag) :)

azteclady said...

Thank you, Ms Reus--I think it's operator error. I'm known not to see the obvious when it comes to technology so... :sheepish grin:

And thank you for entering me in your giveaway.

I'm with you: I love the beginning of spring and St. Paddy's yet. Definitely the best parts of March

Happy anniversary! hope you get to celebrate many more.

Thank you for the giveaway and happy anniversary!
I love march for the international Woman's day and that, at least theoretically, it should get wormer :D

March is okay. I wish it was a little warmer in upstate NY. It's my boyfriend's birthday, so I like to celebrate with him.

Thanks!
