A visit with Cynthia Eden, giveaway *cancer week finale*

51SxCOWMEEL__SL500_AA278_PIkin4,BottomRight,-46,22_AA300_SH20_OU01_

Hi, everyone! Hope you are having a great day! I wanted to start this post by saying…Wendy and April are awesome. I am so glad that they are taking the time to focus on cancer awareness. Thank you, ladies!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and I’ve got some friends  who are sporting pink hair as they show their support for the awareness push. Pink is most definitely in this month—from hair to clothes, to buttons. And each time that I see that bright color, I think…that could be one more person that is saved. Because awareness really is so important. Early detection. Early treatment. Better chance to live a longer life.

I hate that cancer is hurting so many people. Hate it. And cancer sure doesn’t discriminate—it attacks young and old, taking too many that we all love.

So this month (heck, always!), think about the ones that you love who’ve been hurt. Who’ve been impacted. And think about yourself. If you’re a woman, have you been doing breast self-exams? Do you check in with your doctor like you should? Life is so precious, and it should be enjoyed and lived to the very fullest. I don’t want cancer stealing days from anyone, anytime.

Some lovely ladies invited me to be a part of a special anthology, ENTANGLED. ENTANGLED is a paranormal romance anthology, full of stories designed to get you in the mood for Halloween. All of the proceeds from this anthology are going to the Breast Cancer Research Fund. So the stories are designed to amuse, and the book is designed to (hopefully) help fight this vicious battle.

51SxCOWMEEL__SL500_AA278_PIkin4,BottomRight,-46,22_AA300_SH20_OU01_

Today, I’d like to pay for 2 copies of Entangled (Kindle version because they let me buy the ebooks and send them as gifts) to give to 2 commenters. Want to win? Then just leave me a comment. Tell me…have you seen the pink in your area? Are you sporting some pink yourself?

Thanks for checking out my post—and have a great day.

A visit with Caridad Pineiro and giveaway *part of “Cancer” Week*

Today it is with great pleasure we welcome author, Caridad Pinerio to My Book Addiction. I hope you will join us in welcoming Caridad here and be sure to check out her great stories!

It’s October and you’re probably seeing a lot of pink around since it’s National Breast Cancer Awareness month.  I can’t impress on you enough how important it is that you do your self-checks and go in for regular mammograms.  Like that old saying says, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

It’s an adage that we all need to think about when we discuss cancer in general.  Being overweight, lack of exercise, stress and smoking are all things which we can control in order to reduce our risk of getting cancer.

I know, I know.  I’m sounding preachy, but once your life has been touched by cancer, you get a new perspective on things.

I was 22 when my mom died of cancer.  My sister was only 20 and in her last year of college.  One of my mom’s greatest dreams and something she had worked so hard to achieve for “her girls” was to see us graduate college.  She only got to see part of her dream come true and watching my sister graduate without my mom there was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done in my life.

But that wasn’t the only thing my mom missed.

My mom didn’t see us get married.  She didn’t see me graduate law school, something my mom had planned on us doing together before she got sick.  She didn’t see all the lovely grandkids we’ve had or see those grandkids graduate college.

She would have been so proud of that because my mom valued education.  She knew it was the one way that we would accomplish the American Dream.

She never read any of my books.  I think she might have been proud of that as well since my mom was an avid reader. (Although I might have been a little embarrassed to know mom was reading one of “those scenes”.)

My mom missed all of those wonderful things because she was a smoker and couldn’t quit.  She also ignored the little warning signs that should have said to her to go get a physical.  Maybe if we had caught it sooner, things might have been different.

So during this month filled with pinkness and hope, do something for yourself as well as for others.  Ask yourself what you can do to make , yourself healthier.  Lose some weight, get more active, relax  or quit smoking.  Do it for yourself.  Do it for your loved ones who will miss you every day of your(their) life once you are gone too soon.

 

Thank you Caridad for your inspiring tale, hard as it is to read, it does inspire. As Caridad says take care of yourself, not just this month but all year. Now because Caridad is the awesome woman she is, she’s offered up a copy of SINS OF THE FLESH, as well as a Lost Polo Shirt! Thank you so much Caridad. Now this is part of our “cancer” week so yes once again there is a “goodie bag”, same as before with bath and body product, a notepad that is too cute, a book or two(these will vary with the bags and are in print),swag, and of course the tote itself that says “fight like a girl” plus an ebook copy of ENTANGLED.

So as with the other days we will have 2 winners. Giveaway for the “goodie bag” is open to everyone. Goodluck.

If you would like more information on types of cancers, signs, things you can do to help fight/prevent cancer, and things to help you fight this monster be sure to visit :

A visit with Donna Grant and giveaway *part of “cancer” week*

Today our guest is author Donna Grant, I’m so thrilled that Donna agreed to be one of our guests for this special ‘week’. Please join us in welcoming Donna to My Book Addiction.

ForeverMine_300x190

I love that Wendy and April have dedicated this week on their blog to cancer. I hate that it seems the disease touches nearly everyone in some way.

My father-in-law had prostrate cancer. He found out about it a month before our wedding. The Monday after the wedding he began his treatments, and luckily beat it after an operation and chemo treatments.

For almost 14 years he beat cancer, but toward the end the doctor’s grew concerned that the cancer was coming back. We never learned if it did because he died after following a heart condition and then a stroke while in the hospital.

I’d like to say that was the only way cancer has affected my life, but it isn’t. I remember vividly being pregnant with my oldest when we drove the five hours to visit my brother. He’d suffered through years of having kidney stones that formed too hard to be broken up as most people’s had. He’d gone through so many surgeries that the doctors couldn’t chance doing more.

So, I thought the family was just going for a visit. Imagine everyone’s despair when he announced he’d been diagnosed with leukemia.

There was talk of doing a bone marrow transplant, but my husband wasn’t a match, and I was pregnant. My parents, the doctors said, were too old to be considered, and my other brother had health problems of his own that prevented him from being considered.

My brother lived for another six years before he was taken from us. I came a bit late in my parent’s life as my brothers’ were 9 and 12 years older than me, so at times he was more of a father than brother.

I pray for the day they find a cure for the many forms of cancer. Until then I hold out hope the medicines they’re developing will help everyone.

ForeverMine_300x190I’ll be giving away a copy of my Scottish Medieval novella FOREVER MINE to one lucky commenter! J

Here’s a blurb:

A Highlander bent on revenge…
Braden MacAlister only has vengeance on his mind. It has consumed him since the murder of his family. His every thought, every action is in bringing down the man responsible. Until he lays eyes on Jean.
A lass who dared to challenge her heart…
Jean MacKay’s entire existence is turned upside down when her clan is invaded by Niall MacDougall and he takes her prisoner. Yet, everything changes when Niall and his men are surrounded by The Ghost.
A union of two hearts…
Whispers of Braden MacAlister run rampant through the Highlands, but it isn’t until Jean sees the imposing warrior for herself that she realizes he is the answer to all their prayers. Jean defies everything to stand next to Braden and the love developing between them. But will it be enough to put an end to Niall once and for all?

Thank you again Donna for being our special guest today. And thank you for offering a copy of your great ebook FOREVER MINE as a giveaway. Readers keep in mind today one commenter will also win a “goodie bag” with some bath and body products, a note pad, a few surprises, and a tote that says “fight like a girl”, as well as an ebook copy of ENTANGLED (the anthology where all proceeds go to cancer research). So be sure to comment. And who knows there maybe a few extra books thrown in the goodie bag just because.

Also remember the purpose of this week to remind people to get tested, to talk to your family about cancer in all it’s many forms, please remember to hug your family today, let them know you love them and tell them to talk to their doctor about anything, to ask questions! There are sites where you can get a list of questions to ask. Thank  you again Donna for being our guest and sharing your story with us. You are an inspiration to us all!

*as a note this means there will be 1 winner of FOREVER MINE by Donna Grant and 1 winner of the goodie bag and ebook copy of ENTANGLED, so 2 winners*

A visit with Collen Coble and giveaway *Cancer Week cont.*

Today it is with great honor I welcome an author I have loved for years, she is a dear friend, a great author, and a woman I admire. So please join me in welcoming Colleen Coble to My Book Addiction.

Smitten Cover

Friendship is something we often take for granted. But we shouldn’t. It’s a rare gift from God Himself that needs to be treasured and nurtured.

One of the “girls” from our Girls Write Out blog, Diann Hunt, has been fighting ovarian cancer. She’s one of those friends we should all be so lucky to have. Di prays for me at the slightest problem, even though the battle she’s facing is so arduous. She is working on Secretly Smitten between bouts of nausea. Now that’s dedication! The book is a collaboration and she doesn’t want to let us down. When my Dave was diagnosed with prostrate cancer about the same time she found out she was facing another round of chemo, she cried for me, not for herself. And she’s the funniest person I’ve ever met. Just talking to her on the phone lifts my spirits and has me laughing. She has the funniest things happen to her. She is as close as the closest sister and our hearts are knit together in a very mystical way I don’t even fully understand. Only God can bring friends like that into our lives. J

She’s on a mission (and us with her!) to inform women about the need to early detection of ovarian cancer. Get a CA-125 as a baseline the next time you get a pap test. Monitor it yearly. Pay attention to any bloating you might get or pain. The symptoms can be vague. http://www.ovariancancer.org/about-ovarian-cancer/symptoms/ So I’ve made sure my girls are getting theirs checked. You do the same and make me and Di happy! J

Smitten Cover

Di has been doing just a bit better. I called her today to suggest we all get together and sing a Smitten song in honor of the new book coming soon from the four of us: Kristin Billerbeck, Diann Hunt, Denise Hunter and me. Isn’t this the best cover ever? It’s like you’re about to step into a Disney movie. And I think you’re going to love reading it. We all wrote our own personalities into our characters, and our own friendship is closely interwoven into the book. Let us know what you think! It ships in December.

So get out there and get your CA-125 checked! And pray for our Di.

Colleen pub photo 2011smallColleen Coble, author of Lonestar Angel, shipping to stores right now.

You can find Colleen at her website, on twitter, and on facebook.

*Thank you Colleen for being our guest today, and we certainly will keep praying for Di, I’m so glad she’s doing better. She is a remarkable woman, as are you. Now readers because this post is part of my “cancer week” if you comment you will get a chance to win a “goodie bag”, again this bag will have a book, maybe 2(depends on what I have), some bath and body products, a tote that reads “fight like a girl”, a notepad (very cute with a pig on it) as well an ebook copy of ENTANGLED. Now because this is Colleen, I am also going to throw in a copy of SMITTEN as soon as it’s available(December or there abouts). So be sure to comment, and as Colleen says please please know the warning signs and be sure to follow Di’s advice get a CA-125! As before this giveaway is open to everyone. Good Luck!*

A visit with Lisa Renee Jones & giveaway (Cancer week)

Hello everyone! It’ s almost November and I love November for so many reasons, namely the holidays. The holidays are about family, and celebration, and love and life. Love and life is about the good and the bad and the way we come together as we encounter those things.

Another reason to be happy this November is that I have THE STORM THAT IS STERLING coming out. Sterling has no family, having lost them all to tragedy. The heroine in the story has faced plenty of loss herself, and now she faces cancer. Writing this story touched my heart because Becca (heroine) becomes the love of Sterling’s life and once again, he is faced with losing someone he cares for. He is more ready to fight for her life, than even she is. This is a story of sacrifice and love. A story of a battle for life and love that thankfully ends well. I don’t promise the journey won’t be emotional though, but I can promise its one of passion, on all kinds of ways.

A short blurb: Sterling Jeter, Renegade Super Soldier, is fearless, powerful, and wildly unpredictable. His life-threatening mission is to save the beautiful, brilliant astrobiologist Rebecca Burns from ruthless villain Adam Rain. But their immutable mutual attraction threatens to put them in the path of death… or worse…

clip_image001

What does November mean to you?

Tell me for your chance to win a “goodie bag” full with bath and body products, a notepad,a tote that says “fight like a girl” and books!

*As this is also part of my Cancer week winner will also receive an ebook copy of ENTANGLED*

You can visit Lisa at her website, on twitter, on facebook….

51SxCOWMEEL__SL500_AA278_PIkin4,BottomRight,-46,22_AA300_SH20_OU01_

Now for my blog post. Today I wanted to kick off this week by telling you a bit about my mother-in-law, Elizabeth Ann Whitley Keel. Now I know there are jokes about mother-in-laws and how bad they are, and while mine could drive me nuts, I loved her. She was truly like another mother, she’d get mad at me, she’d tell me things that hurt, but she loved me. She treated me just like her son, same as my mom does. My mom loved her as well. When me and my husband married we really did merge our families. My mother-in-law, who I always called, Mrs. Ann, was a great woman. She left behind a husband and only one son, my husband, and 2 grandchildren. She passed away too young.

02-03-2008 01;46;46PM

The image above is Mrs. Ann, my husband, and my father-in-law, Ray, it was taken on our wedding day, June 22, 1996.

Mrs. Ann battled breast cancer 15yrs earlier and won. Then she got a different form of cancer that took her life. She was a strong woman who battled this disease with grace and courage. I’m including various images of her. I’ve battled with what to write, she wasn’t perfect, but she was Mrs. Ann. She was a good woman, had her faith, and loved her family. I miss her still today. She knew before the doctors ever told her that she had cancer and that this time she wouldn’t win the battle, but she still fought it. We so wish she’d have won that battle, there are times when anger will peek it’s head up for all of us, anger that she died so young, anger that a cure hasn’t been found, anger that she didn’t fight harder. While we know she did all she could, I’m not gonna lie and say it’s not there. Here is one of my favorite images of Mrs. Ann, this is her as a little girl,

02-03-2008 02;30;23PMI don’t know why I love it, but I do.

And here she is with our kids, 02-03-2008 02;54;14PM

02-03-2008 02;16;32PManother favorite image of mine, Mrs. Ann with my husband a little boy. I just love the look of this image.

02-03-2008 02;47;45PM

The image above is one most say looks the most like her,she was a smoker and there was nothing we could do to change that, and nope Lung Cancer wasn’t what took her life.

moma, Mrs. Ann

The above image is hazy but this is my mom and Mrs. Ann on our wedding day. Me and my husband are extremely lucky we didn’t/don’t have one mother who loves us we have two. They both love us and can get angry at us, and don’t always take their child’s side in moments but through all we know no matter what both of these wonderful amazing woman will always love us. We are their children and for that we thank God. He couldn’t have picked better mother’s for either of us. Thank you God for giving us the mothers you did, we treasured our time with Mrs.Ann and miss her. We know each day is a blessing with my mother and pray we get to keep her for a LONG time.

If you would like to share your stories with us please do so. We will be featuring various authors later this week, some may talk about cancer, others not. I hope you will enjoy these posts and that you will learn things or find hope. I’m including a link to various resources for Cancer if you’d like to help out, help us promote ENTANGLED so tons of money can be given to research.
