It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
What happened this week?
Another busy and productive week. I made a nice start on the big marketing assistant project I am working on this week. I did some work for Lola’s Blog Tours and am working on a new tour, which isn’t live yet. It was a busy week, but I also got a lot done.
If you need a good laugh, check out this post by the Bloggess or her twitter account. She experienced something awkward and twitter jumped in and started tweeting her their awkward experiences. I laughed so hard that the next day my belly muscled ached so much I could hardly move, even sitting hurted so much. A day later my muscles felt a lot better alreayd and i can mvoe normall again now.
My previous banner maker who made the tour banners for Lola’s Blog Tours stopped. I am sorry it didn’t work anymore, but luckily I found a new solution and ended up feeling positive and happy about the change. I asked Michelle from Limabean Designs if she wanted to design my tour banners and she said yes. So I have a new banner designer now! And when authors books tours they can book teaser graphics for their book as well which will be designed by Limabean Designs. I am really excited to be working with Michelel for my tour banners now as well, she designed most of the graphics for my blog and she’s done an awesome job with those, so I am sure her tour banners will be awesome too.
And I signed up for the recipe exchange that Anna from Herding Cats and Burning Soup is hosting. I am really excited for this! It’s affordable and fun and something I can actually participate in for a chance. I got a bit overexcited and I already bought christmas cards, enveloppe’s, international stamps and something extra to ship with the card and recipe. Now I just have to wait to hear to whom I have to ship recipes, pick out a recipe and ship everything.
Random Picture(s) of the Week
We bought somethgin new this week, these adorable pop molds were discoutned at our grocery store and we grabbed a few. We have this bird for me and a turtle for my boyfriend and we have another package fo six which will be a christmas package. Basically it’s a silicon mold and you put yoghurt, chocolate, custard etc inside, put it in the freezer for 6 hours and then you have ice or solid chocolate. We haven’t tried it with chocolate yet, but we did try yoghurt and custard and it turns out pretty good. We also have some fruit flavoured quark to try this week. It’s a lot of fun experimenting with different flavours.
This is something I eat frequently on my bread during lunch, it’s flatt pieces that are the same shape as cheese, but they are sweet and taste like cocos. We call it in dutch “Kokosbrood” or cocosbread literally translated. Do they sell this in the UK and the US as well? How do you call it? What do you usually eat on your bread?

Fashion buyer Shea Walker had a fast track lifestyle until a car accident sidelines her to a painful recovery. Seeking quiet for the holidays, Shea returns to the snowy mountains where she grew up to make peace with her past and spend time with her estranged family. She never expected J.C. Royce–now a hockey star–would return to their hometown, too. Determined to avoid that particular sexy mistake, she’s caught off guard when her first night in town brings them face to face.
Seeing Shea practically fall at his feet is gratifying, until J.C. realizes his proud former friend, who he once thought would become a whole lot more, is truly hurt–and in more ways than she lets on. Lucky for Shea, he’s got a big house just sitting empty and a tree ready to decorate, as she is in no shape to stay by herself. With his bad boy arrogance down to an art form after eight years in the NHL, J.C. is more than a match for feisty Shea. Especially when it comes to her outrageous claim that there was never any chemistry between them…
But when it comes to convincing her to stick around town until the New Year, he
just might need a Christmas miracle.

The enigmatic Gresham aids in Stella’s metamorphosis and their chemistry ignites, though a long-time girlfriend and a significant age difference stand in the way.
A Battle for the Rest of Her Life
Stella’s life fast-tracks to extraordinary when she enrolls at Radix Citadel for Supernatural Learning, an enchanted college whose students turn furry on the regular. As Stella learns to navigate the magical new world of Thayer she must also find her animal form, a task as elusive as her ancestry.

Together, Liv and Di follow a trail of sinister secrets in their sweet little town that leads them from drug smugglers to a Civil War battlefield, and just when they think they’re whistling Dixie, Liv and Di will find themselves squarely in the crosshairs of the least likely killer of all. . .
