Happy Blogoversary Celebration!!!






Its Here!!!  Happy Birthday/Blogoversary to my virtual baby!!  And do I have a line up here to help me celebrate!!  I am so excited!!  So lets get this party started!!  Let me introduce our authors that had some nice stuff to say about CEWTNK and what they are offering for you...there will be links under all the author's posts, pick your favorites and comment on where the link leads you for extra entires!!!

Leanore Elliot has her own page because, well she is offering alot:
More Sex!! , Gateway to the Sun , Sunset Warrior, Beasts, Leather and Lace
Leanore is offering one copy of all of her books!!!

Natasha Blackthorne: Winners choice of her backlist!!
A Measured Risk,  Emily's Seduction, White Lace and Promises
I met Nikki online last September when I was first starting to promote my novella Grey’s Lady and I was spending my days searching for 18 & over blogs. She was one of the first book bloggers that I approached on my own. I asked her for a review and guest post and she accommodated me in a very timely manner.
Nikki has wonderful enthusiasm for all aspects of book blogging. She’s a very creative person who is always happy to help with promotion and to make it fun. I am looking forward to our upcoming naughty blog hops this fall as well as some promotional spots she has scheduled for me this summer.
May 20 was the one-year anniversary for my debut novella Waltz of Seduction. I am happy to also be sharing in the one-year anniversary for Close Encounters With The Night Kind. Congratulations to Nikki!

What an honor to help CEWTNK celebrate one year in the blogosphere! I've loved being a guest here and Nikki has been professional as well as fabulous, sharing reviews and exerpts and connecting me with her wonderful readers. Nikki and her CEWTNK readers have always been enthusiastic, inspiring, and oh-so-helpful. When I was stuck, she helped me title Shadows to Light and most recently we all had a blast as CEWTNK readers named a character for one of my upcoming novels. (They named him so well actually, that I'm planning a spin off series just for him). Happy Blogiversary and here's to many more years of great book blogging ahead!

Tarah Scott: E-copy of Labyrinth
I absolutely love being a guest on Close Encounters with the Night Kind. Nikki is the best to work with, and she gets all kinds of action on her blog. Gotta love that! Thank you, Nikki, and keep up the good work. We authors need you!

I was first introduced to Nikki and Close Encounters Of The Night Kind via Lucy Felthouse and her Writer's Marketing Service. What struck me about Close Encounters was how snazzy and fun the blog was, and this was clearly reflected in Nikki's attitude and energy as well. Nikki approached my books with such a wonderful combination of enthusiasm and professionalism that I knew it she was a contact I wanted to keep. Working with her and her blog has been a real pleasure, as it's obvious she looks out for her readers and goes out of her way to make sure they interact and feel involved. I'm looking forward to many more fun days spent with Close Encounters. Thanks Nikki, for all your hard work! :)

Racheal Firasek:  E-copy of Creating Fate
Before I even knew about Close Encounters--and all of Nikki's blog genius--I knew just Nikki, the reviewer. She's always been very sweet and wonderful to work with. When I need a place to land, she never turns me down. Happy Blog-a-Versary...er...Blog B-Day...er...you know. Luv ya, girl!"

 
Dana Michelle Burnett:  E-copy of Haunted
Working with you was a true pleasure and you always make authors feel welcome. If it wasn't for great bloggers like you, many of our books would go unnoticed.

J.W. Baccaro: Complete Guardian of the Seventh Realm Series in e-format
Prophecy of the Guardian


Ever since Nikki began promoting my epic fantasy series “Guardian of the Seventh Realm,” the attention to my series has really picked up—and for the better!  Nikki is quite fun as a host, playful, and she gives such fantastic reviews from the heart.  I am glad to have been on her blog site “Close Encounters With The Night Kind,” and I will continue to show my face, every now and again, as long she allows me.  :)
Thank you Nikki, so very much!

Congratulations Close Encounters of the Night Kind!
I consider myself very fortunate to have found this awesome, high energy lady. I ran into her site several time with different Blog Hops we were in together. After a while I got curious and checked out her blog and fell in love with it. As soon as I had a new release coming out I contacted her thinking it would be months before I heard from her.
No way, I heard from her only hours after I emailed her my request. Professional, honest and enthusiastic are the two words that come to mind when I think of Nikki and in a profession where rejection is the norm she makes you feel worthwhile. I have given her blog out to many of my fellow authors knowing they couldn’t be in better hands.
Looking forward to a long relationship with ya, Love Shannan
Debrah AnastasiaE-copy of Poughkeepsie and Crushed Seraphim
Working with Nikki and the Close Encounters With The Night Kind blog has been amazing. What I love about Nikki is that she offers authors opportunities to interact more with the readers and have some fun! I was able to particiapte in the First Kiss event and it was adorable. I looked forward to reading other books' first kiss and then seeing Poughkeepsie featured as well. I can't wait to see what Nikki is going to do next and count myself lucky to be an author she is willing to put up with!

Happy Blogoversary Close Encounters With The Night Kind!
Nikki- you’re running a fantastic blog. The reviews are thoughtful and professional and the interviews are always entertaining. I’ve enjoyed popping by the blog to learn about new books and authors. Not to mention Man Candy Monday makes getting out of bed to start the workweek worth it!
As an author I’ve also enjoyed working with CEWTNK. I’ve met a number of new readers on the site and I participated in my first Blog Hop with you, which again led me to meet many more readers. It’s been a great experience partnering with you. I’m looking forward to the next Hop and to another fabulous year with Close Encounters With The Night Kind.
Congratulations, Jordan
Judy Teel:  E-copy of Instructing an Heiress
Wow, where to start! I really enjoyed working with you. You were my first review/interview and for a new writer that is scary, but you made it easy. You are truly a pleasure to work with, very professional and kind. Here's wishing you many, many more happy and successful years!

Victoria VaneE-copy of A Wild Night's Bride and Breach of Promises

Happy Blogoversary to Close Encounters With the Night Kind!

What I love about this blog has been the chance I have had to reach new readers through guest posts and giveaways, and for my work to be showcased in well written reviews. I have also participated in a couple of your blog hops and have greatly enjoyed the experience. Thanks so much, Nikki, for providing this site and the opportunities. It has been a great year and I hope there are many more to come!

Warmest regards,

Victoria Vane

Xavier Axelson:  E-copy of The Birches
I love the Close Encounters of the Night Kind blog.  I first became acquainted with Nikki and the blog during a blog tour for my novella, The Birches.  Which, by the way, is not paranormal in any way…except maybe in that I have a paranormal love affair with culinary pursuits…I know it’s a reach, but Nikki kindly hosted and reviewed the piece even though it wasn’t necessarily a paranormal story.  My relationship continued with the blog through other tours, reviews, contests, and guest posts.  If you write in this genre or any genre, you know how difficult coordinating any and all of the previously mentioned items can be.  Nikki always communicated quickly, efficiently and most importantly, kindly, to every, and all of my emails and this makes a busy writer very happy.  It has been my pleasure to work with Nikki and the Close Encounters of the Night Kind Blog and I hope to continue working with her in the future!  Xxooxoxo Xavier Axelson.

"I love blogging with Close Encounters of the Night Kind! I always get lots of hits and meet some wonderful new readers. Plus, Nikki, is super easy to work with. Congrats on the one year anniversary!"
Emma Meade:  E-copy of Night Sighs
Nikki was kind enough to read and review my first book, Night Sighs last year, as well as inviting me back for the Naughty By Mistletoe bloghop where I got to post a brand new short story based on my characters, the rockstar vampire Tristan and his feisty and independent girlfriend Alex. Thanks Nikki for all your support and Happy Birthday to Close Encounters With the Night Kind.

Happy Blogoversary! What's my favorite thing about Close Encounters with the Night Kind? All the books and sharing the love of reading. Nikki, you made me feel so welcome and let me share about my book. Where would authors be without reviewers like you who take the time to review books and share wonderful insight with fellow book lovers? And I love how every comments on all posts. That means a lot. Thank you for all that you do!

"Happy Birthday Nikki and Close Encounters! I have been so honored to work with you over the past year and always appreciate the enthusiasm and thoroughness you take with each and every book review. You must know authors feel like letting their babies into the world is a hard job, so you make it easier. Thanks for the wonderful reviews, great blog posts, and a future filled with many five stars for all of us! To celebrate, I am giving away my erotic short Play Me - the 2nd in the Steele Brothers series. But remember...Nikki claimed Rome Steele first so you must share...
