Since it's almost Valentine's Day I'm holding a LOVEAPALOOZA blog festival, and you're all invited!
I'm giving away some prizes because I reached 200 followers last week, so why not make all the prizes LOVE themed. Because, you know, I have lots of love for my supporters (not followers--supporters.)
Very late at night (EST) on February 14th I will pick 3 random winners to be my blogger valentines. Here are the lovey-dovey giveaways.
1.) Kristin Walker's new YA novel
A MATCH MADE IN HIGH SCHOOL
When a m andatory course forces Fiona to “try the knot” with super-jock Todd Harding, she’s convinced life could not possibly get any worse. Until moments later, when her long-time crush is paired with her arch-enemy (otherwise known as Todd’s obscenely hot, slightly sadistic girlfriend). But that’s nothing compared to her best friend’s fate – a year with the very shy, very goofy, very big Johnny Mercer.
A series of hilarious pranks and misunderstandings leave Fiona wondering: is there something her supposed “best friend” hasn’t told her? Could there be more to Johnny Mercer than a deep voice and an awesome music collection? And perhaps most intriguing of all, is it possible that Todd Harding could actually have a heart – and a brain – beneath his pretty-boy exterior?
2.) IF...(Questions for the Game of Love)
If you could have anyone in the world say one romantic thing to you, what would it be, and who would utter it? If you had to select the sexiest word in the English language, what would you pick? If you could make love only one day of the year, which day would you choose? If you had to name the most humiliating moment you have had involving a lover, what would you say? If you had to define love in a few simple words - o r actions - how would you do it? These questions and many more are asked in this fun Love edition of the famous thought-provoking IF series.
3.) Titania's Spell Cards for LOVE & SUCCESS
These spell cards are designed to bring a little magic into the user's life. Each box contains 64 cards, each with a magic Wishing Spell to help enhance the user's life. The spells ensure charms and ceremonies that help to find and keep love, success, wealth and happiness.
PLUS...because the winners will be my VIP valentines, a heart shaped box of yummy chocolates will be included with each prize.

So, to properly kick off Loveapalooza here is one of my all time favorite love quotes...
"Love is passion, obsession, someone you can't live without. If you don't start with that, what are you going to end up with? Fall head over heels. I say find someone you can love like crazy and who'll love you the same way back. And how do you find him? Forget your head and listen to your heart. I'm not hearing any heart. Run the risk, if you get hurt, you'll come back. Because, the truth is there is no sense living your life without this. To make the journe y and not fall deeply in love - well, you haven't lived a life at all. You have to try. Because if you haven't tried, you haven't lived." ~William Parrish, Meet Joe Black
SHOT DOWN! I originally planned to have everyone post favorite love scenes on 2/14, but then I found out there's a Love at First Sight blogfest going on that day.
Cupid says no blogfest battles allowed, so I'll limit mine to comments and giveaways.
Add your name to the list to be entered for prizes. Happy Loveapalooza!
