Happy Anniversary Secret Cravings Publishing

I love a celebration, I mean who doesn't? Special occasions remind us of the things in life we need to appreciate and be grateful for. Loved ones, family, friends, things we've achieved, and even the lessons we've learned from our failures. We can celebrate anything, and I know in Australia we often do. I mean the whole country nearly closes down on the first Tuesday of November each year for the Melbourne Cup (for those of you who don't know, it's a horse race). I see all my overseas friends sitting in front of their computers with stunned expressions. I kid you not, we celebrate a horse race. It's a huge day, workplaces stop to watch or listen to the race. The only movement in the whole country is people jumping up and down screaming at a TV screen.

My point is, celebrations are a great thing. For the last month, authors who are part of the Secret Cravings stable (I may as well stick with the horse theme now I've started) have been blogging and giving away prizes because it's Secret Cravings Publishing's (SCP) First Anniversary. I'm only new to the world of writing and publishing but so far it's been a great experience for me, much of it due to SCP. My first novella in their Hot Flash Line came out this month, three more in the same series are to follow this year. I'm thankful to be able to participate in SCP's first year and the anniversary celebration. Congratulations on being an excellent publisher. I hope your success continues to grow and that you keep putting out quality books for years to come.

Happy Anniversary Secret Cravings.  

Win a Copy of The Cougar Club.
My first novella, The Cougar Club was released through SCP just this month. I'm giving away a PDF copy as part of the celebration. So, for your chance to win, all you have to do is leave a comment on this blog (along with you email address of course). I'll be announcing the winner on the 16th for those who participate.  

Also if you participate in the competitions and make blog entries on all the celebration blogs you can go in the draw to win the major prize from Secret Cravings Publishing. for more information about how to win the major prize visit the link below.


  1. Happy Anniversary to SCP!
    Congrats on the release of your first book with SCP. I can completely understand everything shutting down for a horse race. I live in Kentucky and horses are a major part of Kentucky. Between Keenland races and, of course, the Kentucky Derby at Church Hill Downs, there are many races and they are an important part of the economy and life in KY. Unfortunately, I am allergic to horses so this is not a good place for me to live, lol.
    Congrats again!
