Giveaway, Starving Author Rant & More

Hey Love Bugs,

Prepare yourselves because I am about to throw a lot at you right now. There’s so much that I want to talk about but since I only post blogs on Wednesday, I just couldn’t wait, so here it is.

First up on the agenda. I HAVE 100 FOLLOWERS.


It may seem like a small thing but it means a lot to me. When I first started this blog it was a school assignment and then I made the decision to pursue writing and I had no idea what I would post about and I thought no one would care but 100 followers? I could cry right now.

Last month I said that if I reached 100 followers that I would pick three of you and give something away. Well, I’ve reached 100 and I’m ready to give something away but I’m not going to pick 3 names.

I’m going to pick 5 names. It is my number, I mean I did title my first book series The Five Sisters.

So without further ado, the winners are…


  1. kathryn01ify
  2. facetioussoup aka MLWA
  4. Sheila Sea
  5. words on a blackboard

You guys have 5 days to contact me in order to receive your gift.

Sorry if 5 days seems a bit short but like I said, it’s my number.

I will do another giveaway in October if I can get to 200 followers by then. Do you think it’s possible?

On to other news.

I was going to do a post ranting about being a starving author but can I call myself starving if I have a day job?

I don’t think so but if I didn’t have this day job I would surely be starving. So… do you guys want to help a sista’ out? Hahaha. Reviews are the bread and butter for an author so if any of you have received my book in a giveaway or if you’ve purchased it, please be sure to leave me a review. If you haven’t yet read it, it is still available for purchase on Amazon and in my store.

That leads me to my final note.

The anniversary of the day I released my first book is fast approaching. Along with it is the day my grandmother passed away and her birthday. I dedicated my book to my grandmother and I want to do something for her anniversary. My grandmother lost her fight to cancer and she is not the only loved one that I have lost to that terrible disease.

So for 3 days and 3 days only (at the moment) I will be donating proceeds from every book sale to help with Cancer Research. The thing is the book has to be purchased from my store, not Amazon, so that I can keep track of it.

The three days are Sept 28, Oct 5 and Oct 9.

I am really counting on you guys to bombard my store for those three days and help out with a cause that is very near and dear to my heart.


I think that’s it love bugs. I hope it wasn’t too much all at once.

Remember to stop by my store to purchase a copy of my book The Five Sisters Power

Also stop by and follow me on Goodreads

Until the next time… Love, Peace & Chicken Grease.
