The Monday Blues Promotion Day!

Welcome to the first promo day at Storm Goddess Book Reviews!

Let me explain how this will go.

Each week, there will be a new theme. Authors can get in on the fun if they have an excerpt from their already released book or a book coming out within the next couple of weeks.  Excerpts shouldn't be more than 500 words long.

I'll pick a few excerpts to feature on the blog, but worry not, because even if I don't pick yours, the comments section will be open and you can post your excerpt, book title, and at least one buy link. Oh, and don't forget your name, lol.

This week's theme, since this past Saturday was St Patrick's Day is celebration. If you have an excerpt that shows your characters celebrating something, feel free to post it! It can be a personal celebration, a party, anything. be creative, have fun, and I hope you'll join us every week!

Excerpt:  “What?” Maggie met Elsie’s gaze. “You’re leaving?”

“We’ll be right back. Ethan won’t bite, right?” She pinned Ethan with her most take-charge stare.

“Definitely not.” He raised his hands in surrender as his mouth curved upward. “I will behave like the 

utmost gentleman.”

“All right.” Turning, Elsie followed her fiance, leaving Maggie standing alone with Ethan.

Married gentlemen don’t kiss or ask for kisses, especially with unknown women,” she said.

Ethan frowned and adjusted his cuffs. “You’re right.”

With one look at his contrite expression, sadness and a hollowed out feeling filled her. How could one

 man affect her this easily? After Rick, how could she ask such a silly question? It appeared learning 

from mistakes was beyond her capabilities.

“I’m sorry if I offended you.”

“No worries. After what you did yesterday, I owe you.”

“How about a dance?” Hand held out, he nodded toward the floor below. “Friends. Completely platonic dancing.”

Absolutely nothing with this man could be completely platonic.

She quickly quashed the thought and slipped her hand in his.

My Website:

So bring on your excerpts! 

Oh and while we are at it, next Monday's theme is.... ONE OF YOUR MAIN CHARACTERS HAVING TO OVERCOME A FEAR. 

If you have an excerpt centered around this theme, you are welcome to join in next week. I will feature a few excerpts, and then you can put yours in the comments if you weren't chosen. It's first come, first serve. I'll take about 3-5 excepts to feature.  Please have them to be no later than the Friday before, along with any relevant links you want to go with it- buy links, website, etc.

Thanks for playing!
