Happy Birthday Musa Publishing!

Musa is turning one, and we Musalings are full of festive cheer! So much so that the gals in charge are giving away some seriously sweet prizes. Hop on in and join the fun, and you can win one of two swag bags, a $50 Musa gift card or the Grand Dame of prizes: a Kindle Fire! All you have to do is visit the Musa author blogs listed below between October 1st and October 7th. Each blog you comment on earns you another entry into the drawing.

Please note that you'll need a US or Canada mailing address to win the Kindle Fire and the swag bags, but the $50 Musa gift card is open to everyone. Winners will be drawn and posted on October 9th.

Here's a pic of the contents of a swag bag, although I've been told that some 
of the swag may be slightly different and there will be more of it.

In order to celebrate this landmark day, I am giving away a copy of my book, Fashioning a Romance. To enter my drawing, please follow my blog and be sure to leave a comment as well with some way to get in touch with you. My own personal giveaway is open to everyone, so international blog hoppers need not worry.

Here's the blurb for Fashioning a Romance:

Dedicated American fashion girl, Caitlyn Taylor, can't stand players, and has successfully dodged them like enemy fire all her life. And then she meets fun-loving British CEO, John Harrington. Not only is he her boss's brother, he's the charismatic kind of womanizer that nightmares are made of. Worse still: he's exactly Caitlyn's type. As if his being the Superman of sex appeal isn’t enough, he's also got that quirky something-something that she adores. Not that she's even considering falling prey to his methods. No way.

John can’t fathom how Caitlyn can be impervious to his charms, given the extraordinary chemistry between them. The more she resists, the more determined he is to break down the walls she’s built up to keep him out. Forced to get creative, he orchestrates a “surprise” weekend in Paris for the two of them. Game on!

And there you have it! Musa Publishing is giving away some stellar prizes, and each of the 80+ blogs on the hop are also giving away a prize. So be sure to scroll down to the linky list and get hopping (and commenting). Have fun and good luck!!!
