Divine Promotions Christmas Blog Hop 2016 – Giveaway!


A.J. and I would like to welcome Divine Promotions to the web site. Help us celebrate the holiday season by giving away some really cool gifts (check out the Rafflecopter link at the bottom of the post).

Our ‘gift’ is for one lucky reader to pick ANY book from my back list, found HERE. Please leave a comment to enter.

But, first here’s A.J. and her awesome Christmas sweater with a yummy recipe to help kick off the season!xmas-tree

If someone were to ask me when I was a child what the meaning of Christmas meant to me was, I would immediately tell them Santa Claus, or something in relation to the copious amounts of toys I would be receiving. It’s a little comical how much the meaning of Christmas changes in a person throughout their lifetime. Even when I was a teenager I was still more concerned with the amount of gifts I would receive, and not so much about what it really means. It didn’t really start to change until I graduated from High School, I think.

The meaning of Christmas to me is about Jesus Christ. It is a day to reflect and celebrate when he was born and gave us the ultimate salvation later in his death and resurrection. Without his birth we would still be stuck with our sin problem that we had before. It took me many years of growing and mess ups to finally figure this out, and to become a Christian. Christmas became a lot brighter, I felt like before it was all about myself, but truthfully, it’s about something bigger…at least to me it is.

sweaterIt also is a time for family and being thankful for what we have. I never really gave much thought about always having family together on Christmas. I thought that it was something that every family did on Christmas, I didn’t know any better until I grew outside of my little High School bubble. My family is fortunate to have one another throughout the holidays, and even more fortunate to have gifts for one another during this season. Some families may not have people to share this holiday with, let alone have a roof on their head, clothes on their backs, and food in their stomachs. I have to say…we are very lucky.

I have a lot to be thankful for this holiday season. There have been many changes in my life throughout the course of this year. One, of which, is officially becoming an Author. One of my biggest childhood dreams finally came to life this year. The second, was becoming a wife. I can’t be any more grateful for these two things during Christmas, and I can’t wait to celebrate them both with my friends and family throughout the holidays.

Here is a recipe that I make every year for our family Christmas. In our family it is called “Grandma’s Salad Dressing:”

• 8 Pieces Fried Bacon – Crumbled
• 50 Cents Worth of Fresh Mushrooms
• ½ Package of Spinach
• ½ Head of Lettuce
• 3 Boiled Eggs – Chopped

Salad Dressing:
• 2 Teaspoonfuls of Worchester Sauce
• ¼ Cup of Vinegar
• ½ Cup of Olive Oil
• ½ Cup of Sugar
• 1 Teaspoonful of Salt
• 1/3 Cup of Ketchup
• 1 Medium Onion – Grated
• 15 Cents Worth of Bean Sprouts

From my family to yours, Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday Season!

Free Blog Read: The Law of the Jungle, Pt. 6

coverlawHappy New Year! I hope you had a great one. Eleanor and I are continuing with our short story, The Law of the Jungle. In this part, Henry and Blake go back to Blake’s penthouse and sexy times ensue (Not Work Safe). Enjoy!

The Law of the Jungle, Part 6

Henry had never seen anything like Blake’s penthouse. The same floor-to-ceiling windows that lined Blake’s office also lined his living room, affording a breathtaking view of Central Park and the city beyond. The furnishings were modern and obviously expensive, but not at all the lavish set up one would think a wealthy man like Blake would have. It was simple and comfortable, and Henry decided he liked it.

The bathroom, however, was another story. Luxurious to the point of near decadence, it was warm and inviting and fitted with the biggest tub that Henry had ever seen, complete with whirlpool jets. The shower was large as well with shower heads on three sides and one attached to the ceiling in the middle. It was easily big enough for two. His mouth dropped open at the sight.

With an indulgent chuckle, Blake said, “I save my extravagance for the things that really matter.”

coverlawThanks for keeping up with this story. Under the cut, part five.

The Law of the Jungle (Part Five)

* * * *

Henry moved quickly, almost too quickly, and next thing Blake knew he had a very persistent Henry Kadison looking down at him, holding on to his arm, so Blake couldn’t escape, and from the fierce look in his eyes, Henry showed no signs of relenting.

“Blake, you’re right, I don’t know what I want. I don’t know…because I didn’t expect this. I didn’t expect to meet you tonight. I didn’t expect you to show an interest in me. I’m just some farmer’s kid from Milton, Nebraska. But I do know I want you. I just…” Henry broke off, ducked his head, blushing.

Blake was stunned and astonished. Before Henry had turned away, he’d seen the sincerity in his eyes. Henry wasn’t a tease out looking for a thrill — he was innocent — the blush had given it away.

Free blog read: The Law of the Jungle, Pt. 4

More from Henry and Blake. Just a little bit of a cliffhanger, but the following weeks will make up for it with sexytimes. 🙂 Thanks for continuing to read!

The Law of the Jungle (Part 4)

Blake was confused by the change; he thought Henry and he were on the same page about why they had come upstairs: sex. But from the look on Henry’s face, this wasn’t about to happen. Blake sighed. How come he always got the closet cases?

As a rule, Blake didn’t get involved with confused straight boys looking to experiment. He’d learned his lesson the hard way his sophomore year of college with Jeremy Winthrop. The Winthrop’s had money to rival the Rockefellers, which had been the reason Blake had been drawn to him at first. Jeremy didn’t need Blake’s money, he had his own, and it had been refreshing to have someone in his life who didn’t want to know him because of the Martin name.

Lovers for a semester, Blake had believed they were in love, but in reality he had been just a fling for his roommate. A way to pass the time until he got engaged to his girlfriend. The scorn on Jeremy’s face when Blake had pleaded for Jeremy to break off his engagement still was vivid. “You thought I loved you, Blake? It was just fucking. I’m not gay. I have a girlfriend.”

Just remembering Jeremy and his betrayal, made Blake angry all over again. How could he have been so wrong about Henry? In reality, Henry was just another Jeremy — out for himself.
