Amalia Dillin's Forged by Fate Cover Reveal

My good Twitter friend, Amalia's cover is here and it's gorgeous! Check it out and visit her website for all the amazing new info:

Amalia's Website

Every god, from each of the world’s pantheons, mythologies, and religions — they’re all real.

After Adam fell, God made Eve to protect the world. — Adam has pursued Eve since the dawn of creation, intent on using her power to create a new world and make himself its God. Throughout history, Eve has thwarted him, determined to protect the world and all of creation. Unknown to her, the Norse god Thor has been sent by the Council of Gods to keep her from Adam’s influence, and more, to protect the interests of the gods themselves. But this time, Adam is after something more than just Eve’s power — he desires her too, body and soul, even if it means the destruction of the world. Eve cannot allow it, but as one generation melds into the next, she begins to wonder if Adam might be a man she could love.

Entangled In Love Valentine's Blog Hop

Click here to check out what the other authors are giving away during the Entangled In Love blog hop!

This is quite the hoopla so go check out the other blogs--and GET ALL THE THINGS!  WOOOOOOOOOOOOO!   For my blog, I'm giving away a Personalized Snowflake Mug from Personalization Mall!  Score!

 Red Personalized Holiday Mugs with Hot Cocoa - 4499   

You can put whatever name you want on there! Yours, your BFFs, Jack's name, Frosted, Booger, your boss's (suck-up), etc. Limitless limited options. (Let's not get nuts...I'm sure they only allow a certain number of letters.)  I'm limiting this to the contiguous United States because their international shipping rates scare the crap out of me...AND I'm terrified I wouldn't pack this well enough and the snowflake mug would be shattered to pieces the size of snowflakes.

The snowflake necklace I'm giving away in the Get Frosted Blog Hop IS international, though, so knock yourself out there. Here is the Rafflecopter giveaway for the mug pictured above:a Rafflecopter giveaway

Super Bad Jack Frost- Frosted Jokes

I'm trying to switch more of my writer's blog posts over to my website. (It's been up and going for about a week now...yay! Woo!)

Here is the post link: http://wendysparrow.com/2013/02/the-best-of-the-worst-jack-frost-frosted-jokes/

But I'll repost it here...so you don't have to travel:

I know how much you guys have been enjoying my jokes on Twitter, but you’re all heartbroken because you might miss some while you’re sleeping…or whatever you people do during the middle of the night while I’m awake.  So, HERE THEY ARE…altogether…for your bad joke enjoyment.

How does Jack Frost get around town?
By icicle.

Where does Jack Frost keep his money?
In a snowbank.

After he’s nipped your nose, what does Jack Frost do to show you he REALLY likes you?
Frost bites.

What did Jack Frost have for lunch?
An ice-berger.

Oh, yeah, well, what did he have for breakfast?
Frosted Flakes.

What did Jack Frost call the lazy Frost Fairy who skipped work?
Snow flake.

What did Jack Frost give the baby Frost Fairy?
A snow mobile.

What happened when Jack Frost got attacked by a vampire?
Frost bitten.

What happened when the icicle fell on Jack Frost’s head?
It knocked him out cold.

What is Jack Frost’s favorite dessert?
Something with icing. (You thought I was going to say frosting there, didn’t you? I like to mix it up.)

How does Jack Frost greet his enemies?
With an icy stare.

How did Jack Frost’s ice queen know things were heating up between them?
She got wet.

What did Jack Frost’s ice queen do when he came home late one night?
She gave him the cold shoulder.

Who is Jack Frost’s favorite aunt?
Aunt Arctica

When the Frost Fae return back to the Winter World, how do they greet Jack Frost?
Ice to see you!

(I know. That one was really bad. I winced as I was typing it, and I may have thrown-up a little in my mouth too.)

What does Jack Frost take when he gets sick?
A chill pill.

(There was a joke that I thought of adding here where the punchline was snow-balls, but… *coughs* I’m leaving it out.)
(No, I’m using it.)

Where does the royal winter couple dance the night away?
At snow-balls.

(Wait, what were you thinking?)

Why did Jack Frost leave the snowbank in a fury?
His assets had been frozen.

(See what I did there? I played off that earlier joke. Oh, what? I can’t do that? FINE!)

What are little Frost Fae called?

What do you call Jack Frost in Florida?
Out of his element.

Okay, last one… (you’re welcome)

What did Jack Frost’s wife say to him when he was in a temper?
Chill out.

If you groaned at most of these jokes, it shows you have good taste, and you’d definitely enjoy my novella Frosted.  There is an abnormally large excerpt on Entangled’s Frosted page…not that size matters…but if it does, it’s here:
If you laughed at all of these jokes, well you’re just easy to please, and you should just skip to buying Frosted:
If you enjoy Frosted, I’d be eternally grateful to you if you review it somewhere or “like” it on Amazon or tell a friend…maybe buy it for everyone you know…whatever…. ; )  Thanks for visiting my blog.
