A to Z Challenge 2015 - yes, I'm doing it again! Why Don't You?

Well, it's that time of year again! It's the
A to Z Challenge signup time.

And, yes, I've signed up.  :)

For those who don't know what A to Z is, but might be interested, it's a challenge for bloggers. During the month of April, post every day (except Sundays) on a theme of your choice, but each post must be inspired, in order, by the letters of the alphabet. The idea is to post and to visit other blogs to chat with other bloggers.

So, why, you wonder, is the sign up in January, when it all happens in April? Well, there's a lot of prep work that goes into 26 blog posts in 30 days. I'm a glutton for punishment, I had two blogs in the challenge last year, and this year, I have three: this one, Sophie's Thoughts & Fumbles; Fantasy Boys XXX, Wittegen Press' erotica blog; the Wittegen Press blog itself is also joining in this year. My twin, Tasha, and I are sharing the work at FB3X and Wittegen Press, so it's only the equivalent of two sets of blog posts I have to prepare, but I'm rolling up my sleeves and starting now, because, odds are I won't finish all the posts before April even with two months to prepare.

So, come on, if you're a blogger and you fancy something that is social, a blogging marathon and a chance to network with others, getting a few more followers in the process, go sign up and take the challenge!

Guest Post: Author Julia Matthews, Moon Called (Human-skinned Wolves Book 1) - releasing on 5th Jan 2015

Today, I am welcoming author Julia Matthews to my blog to talk about her new novel, Moon Called, that is releasing very shortly on 5th Jan 2015! So, without further ado, over to Julia. :)


Background on Creative Spark for Moon Called
The main spark of creativity for Moon Called came on a late summer night, while I was sitting outside watching the star lit sky. The moon was lighting the night, like it did so many times back in my childhood home. As a teenage living on the outskirts of a small town I spent a lot of time watching the night sky. (I have to admit it’s the one aspect of country, small town living I miss. There aren’t many clear sky nights in the city I live in now.) The teenager me was drawn into the backyard many of nights, just to bath in the bright moon. I often wondered what was truly lurking among those stars. Guess that’s why it doesn’t surprise me that I’ve written a book that combines my love of the night sky, with my love of werewolves, magic, and nature.


Randy Chance, an orphan werewolf Scout never knew one trip to a bar would turn his life upside down in so many ways. Tiffany knew her adoptive parents loved her, but she couldn’t destroy the feeling of being inadequate. She never thought working on a Monday Night Football night would give her to opportunity to rectify six years of emotional turmoil.

Release Date: Jan. 5, 2015, exclusively on Amazon and be listed in Kindle Unlimited.
