Paying it Forward Katieroo Style!

I have an amazing blog post to share today! An amazing gesture!

As many of you know, Christy Tomlinson is offering her "She" Workshop for the next few weeks. Let me tell you .. I have been drooling and so excited to take this! Well unfortunantly after crunching numbers this past weekend, and being true to our budget, this month we just couldn't make it happen. I was so sad! I had my list all ready to go, I was eager .... then other expenses came up that trumped my hobby!

So my dear friend Katie won a spot on this workshop thru a pay it forward post that Christy had done on her blog (I had no idea that was happening)! I was so happy for her, called her and we had a great chat! Next thing I know .. Katie calls me back and says that she is giving me her spot on the workshop! I WAS COMPLETELY FLOORED! Here I am in the middle of eating my mashed taters, in front of my family with tears streaming down my face! At first I was like "No way .. you can't do that .. you won"! She didn't give me the choice .. she had already e-mailed Christy! Within 5 min I have a password and e-mail welcoming me to the workshop!

THE BEST PART IS ... when Katie e-mailed Christy to give me her spot, Christy was so touched about what Katie did .....that she gave Katie a spot too! CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT? Just goes to show you, that kindness is often rewarded!

Here we were last night, squealing like little school girls! The excitement was palpable!

TY TY TY from the bottom of my heart Katie ... I am not sure if you will ever truely know how much this means to me! You did this so selflessly and from a beautiful place in your heart. I will do you proud and pay it forward to someone else in my own way! YOU KNOW I WILL! :)

Here's to many days of creativity, and being a part of circle of our dearest friends who are also participating, sharing our stories and work .. all of us together!

Backstage Pass (Sinners on Tour, #1)Backstage Pass by Olivia Cunning

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book! It would of been a 5 out of 5 except for the fact that there was much anticipation of the dangerous ex-husband, and in my honest opinion, his character did not deliver!

I loved that this book revolves around a hardcore metal rock band. I have yet to come across a series like this! I loved the self doubt of the strong willed lead female and the persistence of the lead male. I loved reading how they both fought some internal struggles, yet remained very loyal to eachother! MY FAVE part of this book ... THE HUMOUR! I found myself laughing out loud several times at the one liners!

This book is full of hot smut .. serious HOT SMUT .. and I loved every minute of it!

Desire Untamed (Feral Warriors, #1)Desire Untamed by Pamela Palmer

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Desire Untamed was my first shape shifter book/series ever, and I have to tell you, Pamela Palmer did not let me down!

This Feral book stars the chief feral Lyon and his soon to be radiant Kara. What I loved about this book was the spiritual/primitive connection to the earth these feral warriors have. The enemy of this series is certainly a force for the ferals to reckon with, and the way this authors described the history that makes the enemy the enemy was thorough. I loved seeing the romance blossom, with that typical much loved big tough man angst I enjoy from the lead man, and the internal and often external fight of attraction and romance from both lead characters.

In conclusion, a great read, and a great introduction to what I deem to be one of my fave series ever! Well done Pamela! :)
