Hello and welcome to this spot on the Hop!! I sit at number 75 right now! I have a special treat for you!! Today I have Xavier Axelson as a guest and he is offering up three of his recent releases. I have read 2 of them and let me tell you, you are in for a real treat!! Don't forget to comment for your chance on winning the grand prize. Our question to answer is this: If you caught a leprechaun what would you wish for? Now take it away Xavier!!
I’ve wanted to write to this blog for awhile but something kept getting in the way, oh yeah EVERYTHING kept getting in the way. Two new releases, my Examiner.com columns are like spoiled twins who need constant attention and what has taken a back seat? Oh yeah, my writing! The most important thing in my life, isn’t that always the way?
But that’s not what this post is about, hell no! This post is about St. Patty’s Day! I love St. Patrick’s Day! I’m a wee bit Irish, my grandmother was all Irish and I grew up eating boiled dinners on St. Patrick’s day and many other times during the year. If you don’t know what I’m talking about I’ll tell you. A boiled dinner is a pot full of boiled potatoes, cabbage, corned beef, and carrots. In my family, this was usually eaten with red wine vinegar splashed on the cabbage, butter on the tates and mustard for the beef. I’m a vinegar nut so I tended to end up with a bit of it on everything.
After I left home my tradition of celebrating St. Pats Day evolved to include drunken parades that raged the day away in a blur of jell-o shots (often green) and rowdy street fights, bar fights and tons of Guinness, always Guinness. In
When I was a waiter at a restaurant that served it, I would go into work and stake my claim on a plate before the night even got started. I have fond memories sitting at that restaurant counter well after closing and close to eating my plate of Irish goodness. Last year I found a great place close to my home that was THE place to be for corned beef. There was an hour wait and wait I did!
So what is this blog about? It’s about getting your grub on and using St Patrick’s Day as an excuse. I love to drink, eat and be Merry all the time, and so should YOU! Oh yeah and if you haven’t picked up copies of my two latest sexy, scary, yummy books, Earthly Concerns and Menage…HURRY up! I’m waiting for you. I’ll be at the bar with my corned beef and pint.
Not only is Xavier a great author but he is tons of fun and super busy. So what can you win here? I don't know about you but that guest post made me hungry...so did this book which one lucky winner will walk away with:
In the line of duty, decisions that will change your life forever are made in a split-second. Nobody knows that better than Officer Michael Carmac, whose fatal split-second decision haunts his days. Tormented by guilt, Michael seeks solace in a bottle and the friendship he has with his partner, Officer Bertram Angel. But the more he leans on Angel for support, the more Michael discovers a longing that he’s kept hidden for too long. Can Angel help ease the pain of guilt or will Michael’s hidden desires be the end of their friendship?
