Evernight Christmas Blog Hop

Welcome to the Evernight Holiday Blog Hop!

We love the holidays, we love making our readers happy and we love giving away swag. What better way to do that than to hold a blog hop?

Here's how it works... the more blogs you hop to (shown below) the more chance you have of winning prizes. Each site on the hop is offering a prize and Evernight is offering an iPad 2 as the grand prize! To be in with a chance of winning the site 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 that iPad 2! You also get extra points for liking the Evernight Facebook page!/evernightpublishing. Just make sure you let us know in the comments that you've done so.

We're also giving away and Evernight swag bag on our main blog so don’t forget to check that out too!
Happy hopping!

Dear Reader

Welcome to my blog if you haven’t been here before! Nice to see you if you have been here before!!

I am just beginning to plot the sequel to Retraining the Sub which came out with Evernight in August about a difficult sub who has to undertake retraining, but the only person prepared to take her on is the man she jilted at the altar eight years earlier who is delighted to get the chance for revenge.

The new story will be called Retraining the Dom and will be about Master Trey, who appeared very briefly in the earlier story. In this one it is the hero who has to undergo the retraining. The problem is Trey is a very dominant, controlling person. How will he cope giving up that iron will to another for the duration of the training, which will be undertaken by a Domme? And how will she be able to control such a determined Master? Like with Retraining the Sub, a battle of wills commences. Who will win?

Before I finish my plotting I need your help. I am undecided what name to call the heroine (the Domme). These are the options (in alphabetical order, not in any particular preference): Diana, Helen, Jillian, Olivia, Rachel.

Leave a comment on my blog stating which one of those names you prefer. The name with the most votes will be the name of the heroine!!! And on Saturday I will pick one random person to win an electronic copy of one of my books – full details can be seen on Bookstrand's website. Don’t forget to leave your email address so I can contact you if you are a winner and so you can go into Evernight’s grand prize draw.

All good wishes



  1. Olivia is a great name...


  2. I'm so excited about the blog hop! Good luck to everyone, and hooray for Evernight! I hope I win the iPad2 so that I can turn around and give it away to a lucky, loyal Evernight reader. Cheers!
