Happy Birthday Evernight Publishing!

Hi! Beginning October 8th through October 12th, I am one of the authors hosting the Evernight Birthday Blog Hop. The celebration runs through the 12th.
A note:  Stephanie, at Fangs, Wands and Fairy Dust, let me know she is posting a review of my latest release, Stay, on her site on the 8th.  Here is the link:  Stay
I want to say a word about Evernight – When every other publishing house rejected my unusual work of Women’s Fiction, Come Back To Me, Evernight snatched it up. I will be forever grateful for their wonderful enthusiasm, the editing, the cover, the support they provided me.  Come Back To Me was the toughest book I’ve ever written because it’s autobiographical and it is definitely not fun and games.  

I recently received an incredible review on Amazon – made me cry – I’m not going to quote the review but I will point you in the right direction:  Julia deserves many more reviews.  No, I don’t know the reviewer, no I didn’t pay her or send her a copy, and yes, I did burst into tears.

Thank you, Evernight!  I’ll be giving away one Kindle copy and one print copy of Come Back To Me.  (Print copy for U.S. residents only.)

Sometimes the safest path is to keep people at a distance…especially men. Cara’s life has been one nightmare after another. Abused as a child and neglected by her parents, she’s quick to blame herself for every cruel thing that happens to her. And then there’s James, the only man capable of making her forget her misgivings and learn to love again. James, a young doctor in training, is aware of Cara’s history. He’s determined to break through her barriers and build a life with her…and fails. Cara runs away in an attempt to reinvent herself and James fears he’s lost her for good. When she falls into the hands of a drug dealer and mob boss, life as they know it is about to get a whole lot worse. Can their love withstand the demons of her past and present?

Welcome to the Evernight Publishing birthday blog hop!
Evernight Publishing opened its doors two years ago. In those two years we’ve signed over one hundred and sixty authors and published over three hundred books. From paranormal to contemporary, we’ve had more best sellers than we can count and made thousands of people smile, sigh and gasp. So, as a thank you to all our readers and everyone who has supported us, we’re holding this blog hop and we have a whole lot of prizes to offer you.
Here’s how it works… the more blogs you hop to (shown below) the more chance you have of winning prizes. Each author on the hop is offering a prize and Evernight is offering the following grand prizes, a Kindle, a $100 Amazon gift certificate, two Evernight swag bags (which includes a tote, a tee, vouchers, a mug and other coolness) and a personalized Facebook banner. To be in with a chance of winning the author prize simply follow the blog you’re visiting and leave a comment which includes your email address. Each entry on each blog is then counted towards the grand prize draw. The more entries you have, the better your chance of winning a grand prize!

    Happy Birthday Evernight Publishing. I had my first bestseller with Evernight and I will be forever grateful. They took a chance on a new untried author and widened that door for me. Julia, as to what that reviewer posted, you should feel proud because she is totally right. Your books are amazing and as I read Stay, I was in awe of your ability to make the scene come alive. I loved the book and I love your writing. If there is ever a bad review, brush it off, because you are an extremely talented wordsmith.

  38. Delilah – high praise coming from another author. Thank you so much!
