I want to thank Sam, Elena and Rhonda for hosting this fabulous blog hop. I love Small Press for many reasons. First, the stories they produce are truly hidden treasures. They are the bread and butter of debut and experienced authors, alike. Stories that would be classified as “not mainstream” enough have an opportunity to shine. I am so grateful to my small press, Crescent Moon Press. My editor for Soul Reborn, Heather Howland (now with another small press, Entangled Publishing) mentored me through my first publishing experience. She cared about the stories and treated the authors with respect. Small Press companies employ extremely talented artists, no matter what the genre.
So, what am I giving away??
An e-copy of Soul Reborn, Wicked Romance Organic Tote with Signed Cover Flats, Egyptian Tarot Cards

My Favorite Small Press Authors:
My Favorite Small Press Covers:
My favorite Cast of Key to the Cursed Series Heroes:
Asar, God of the Underworld, Dead and Afterlife. He is most well-known for judging souls at the gates of the afterlife. Do not cross him or he may just feed your soul to the beast. Pass the test and receive everlasting life.
Bakari, son of Asar, and Protector of the Gates. Holder of the key to the Underworld. You will recognize him by the scorpion carved tattoo on his back and arms. Those daggers on his chest aren’t just for show. One pierce to the heart will kill any god.
Bomani, Commander of the Underworld Legion. You can’t miss him. He wears his rank on his skin in the form of scarification tattoos that cover his entire body and the brand of the legion shield on his chest. Don’t let his charismatic smile and jovial personality fool you. Only the strongest and fiercest alpha warrior rises to the top.
Kamen, brother to Asar, and Soul Eater. The largest of all the Underworld gods and the most dangerous. Stay clear of this big fellow. His stoicism is just a façade to the beast within. But he has it under control, most of the time.
The Gods of the Underworld have graciously agreed to help me promote my book, Soul Reborn.

You know your old when they come out with the BEST OF’s… Some of the bands you listened to in college are now considered CLASSIC ROCK. So in the spirit of the Holiday, I’d like to take a stroll down memory lane. Yes, to those wonder years of the Holidays when you spent sleepless nights praying for that one toy you’ve been dying to have.
Now that I am a parent, I can appreciate my parents fighting through the stores during the holiday mad rush to get that last toy box on the shelf. Thankfully, shopping rage wasn’t as common back then, although I do remember a news team filming parents fighting over the last Cabbage Patch doll on the shelves. Oh, the yesteryears. What fond memories….
So let us take a look at what we grew up with:
Can anyone guess what this is???
I’ll give the youngins a hint out there. PONG was one of the first video games. The Atari VCS 2600 was released in 1977 for $199 dollars. There were 9 game cartridges. I remember playing this at my best friends house for hours on end. It was a home video game revolution.
Oh, yes. Who could forget the Rubix Cube. Hell, if I couldn’t get but 4-sides and that was using a cheat book. Hey, don’t give me a hard time. I was only 7 at the time. The Creator of this wonder was from Budapest, Hungary. His design took the world by storm and has started to show back up in the stores. I better go back and see if my mom still has the cheat book in her basement.
Honorable Mentions: SIMON, Star Wars Action Figures, Uno.
~ 1980 ~
Cabbage Patch Dolls
The oh so loveable Cabbage Patch Dolls. Now these things caused riots in the streets. I honestly think these things were sold on the black market. I know my sister tried to sell me for one, just kidding. According to the website (click on picture) depending upon the edition, adoption fees begin at $199.00 and go up. Geez. I’m glad I have boys.
MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE
Okay, for our male blog hoppers out there. Who didn’t have a HE MAN or Battle Cat. This Blogger has a dedicated site that I think you need to see. It is an amazing collection of photographs. You have to see it for yourself. Click HERE. There are rumors there is a new movie in the works. He Man is not dead.
Other Honorable Mentions: Pound Puppies, Care Bears, My Little Pony, Glo Worms
Okay, I have to say I never quite understood the cards, but my nephew probably amassed well over $500 worth of these things. Not only were the cards an enormous hit, the cartoon was also.
I admit I had a few of these. More that five, less than ten. I’m not sure where they ended up over the years, certainly not at any auctions or trading parties. We, humans, do have the strangest fixation with collections.
Honorable Mentions: Rollarblades, Nintendo’s Gameboy, Tickle Me Elmo
So, I hope this has brought back some great Holiday memories. To be eligible to enter the Blog Hop give away, you must leave a comment on the blog, so I’d love to hear what your favorite Holiday toy was growing up.
If you’d like 10 extra entries into the drawing (no obligation), please do one of the following: subscribe to Wicked Romance, follow me on twitter, or ADD my novel SOUL REBORN on your Goodreads TBR. Please let me know in your comment which you chose, so that I can give you credit.
