The SWAG pack goes to Shadow K.
Congrats, ladies! 

Thanks to all who participated, and check back often, or sign up for the email alerts, for more contests and giveaways



You’ve heard the saying “Home is Where the Heart Is.”  We all have, and most of us know what constitutes home for ourselves.  We all know who – or what – holds our hearts, and that is where home is for us.
But, some of us may not have a home.  We may be wanderers.  We could be anything really.  Just like our characters or the characters we’ve read about.

So, eight bloggers have joined forces for four days, February 15-18, to give you an insight into what makes a home for our characters or characters we’ve read about! 

Some of these characters have a home.  Some don’t.  To learn more, visit the blogs below.   
Oh, and don’t forget to enter the Rafflecopter for the grand prizes!  

Now what are those prizes?

1st Grand Prize: $40 Gift Certificate from your favorite eBookstore
2nd Grand Prize: $40 Gift Certificate from your favorite eBookstore
3rd Grand Prize: A Swag Pack that contains paperbacks, ebooks, bookmarks, cover flats, magnets, and more!

Any time from February 15th, 8:00 a.m. CT to February 18th midnight CT you can enter both individual blogger prizes and the Grand Prize by commenting on each blog. Be sure to give us an email address so we can contact you if you win.

Can't wait to hop with you!
