Mistletoe Madness Blog Hop

Mistletoe Madness has ended. The grand prize will be announced by PJ Synder, but I can announce the winner of the worst swag in the history of swagdome.  The winner is:
I will send Judy an actual set of Saving Casey temp tats if she supplies me her address. I will also mar a picture of her face with the temps if she sends me a jpg photo. 

I must admit, I was amazed and a bit horrified when I saw the number of you who had lost your minds and wanted the tats. 
The stress of Christmas is clearly impairing your judgement and I am very worried about you. Please take care of yourselves. I treasure my followers and want you to follow me forever.

And let's give a resounding high five to all my lunatics who did NOT win those horrible tats and will look so pretty at Christmas.
Let's face it, there are just some contests you should never win.
Like lotteries: they come with a curse.

Welcome to Liza's stop 

in the Mistletoe Madness

I'll be interviewing Cass from my book 

Saving Casey

Cass would love to stand  beneath mistletoe and enjoy a little love.

Only the guy she loves is thirty years old and she's an eighty- year-old woman who died and has inexplicably returned in the body of a seventeen-year-old girl. 

That's eight reasons why he won't touch her:

Liza:  So Cass, you seem a bit down about Christmas.

Cass: How can I not be? I finally find my soul mate after a whole lifetime of searching and he's far too honorable to even consider a relationship, claiming I'm too young. Still, I'm certain he loves me as much as I love him.

Liza: That's got to be frustrating.

Cass: You've no idea, but its not the only thing ruining my Christmas. A great deal of people, some of whom I loved, have betrayed me. Some even tried to kill me. And let's not forget my ghoul face. Then there's the pain I have to endure to remove these tattoos.

Liza: Wow. You really are having a tough time. 
Let me see if I can step into the future and find something to cheer you up. 
*stares in bag labeled Liza's Brain and smiles.*

Here's something. 
This is you in six months:

Cass: *squeals*  Look at me! I gorgeous!  Oh yeah this makes me happy. Troy won't be able to resist me! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Liza: Now that we've cheered Cass up, let me show you the fabulous trailer for Saving Casey.

 And for those of you who prefer to read what Saving Casey is about, here's the blurb:

Eighty-year-old Cass wakes up in the body of a troubled seventeen-year-old girl named Casey, which all believe has survived a suicide attempt. Cass intends to turn the girl’s life around, only it’s harder than she expects. All Casey’s troubles have now become Cass’s and someone wants her dead.


Thanks for visiting my site. 

I would love for you to become a regular follower.


I forgot tell you about my gift.
Worse Gift Ever in the History of Swagdom.

I'm offering temp tattoos like Cass'.
Why would you want to mar your pretty face with these tats? 
I've no idea.

But if you want them, then leave a comment below that says: Lost my mind, want the tats. Don't forget to add your email address. If there happens to be more than one person who wants this horrible gift AND leaves their email, then I'll put the names in a bag labeled LUNATICS and draw one. However, with my luck, I'll be stuck with these stupid tats forever.

Also, please follow my blog. I write it especially for lunatics.

Here's the irony. These tats cost me more than it would cost you to buy Saving Casey, which makes my book

Here's a banner I made from one review:

Doesn't that sound better than 'the worst swag in the history of swagdom'?

And on that note, I give you the link to get the hell out of tattoo land and back to the blog hop.
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I. Love. Your. Sense. Of. Humor. ;)

    Lost my mind. Wants the tats.

    1. OMG, lol, you truly have. (lost your mind) You must follow me or subscribe to my blog. I need to know you will always follow my lunacy...even when they cart you away to a mental home. You never know. I could be your room mate.

  2. Lost my mind, want the tats. More than Carlene I'm sure hehe.

  3. I freakin Love this!! I'm buying that book because you are sooo funny:)
    Lost my mind, Want the tats!
    I'm following your blog.
    Happy Holidays!

    1. yeah! Be warned, you won't just laugh when reading Saving Casey. You'll laugh, cry and yell in outrage. Rather like your relatives will if you show up with Casey tats.

  4. Lost my mind, want the tats!
    I can't wait to read this now :)
    Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

    1. "Awesome giveaway"????? What are other blogs offering? Worms on toast?
      That taste horrible, BTW. (Last time I ever did what my brother said.)

      Four lunatics now. I need to make lunatic bag....

  5. Bigger. I need to make the lunatic bag bigger. Who would have ever thought that would be necessary. What is wrong with you people?

  6. Happy Happy Holidays! Thanks for the great giveaway!
    Those tatts are hot!

    1. Thanks April. You do realize in order to win these tats, you have to write the words Lost my mind, Want the Tats.
      Since I've discovered so many people who wish to give grams a heartattack at Christmas, I have to favor the lunatics who follow directions.

      I never expected to have anyone want these. Good thing they really do exist.

  7. LOST MY MIND, WANT THE TATS! What is wrong with me. Born this way and worked too many Renaissance Faires!
    Want a incredible idea for a book. I hope I win it and can't wait to read it. Happy Holiday!


    1. Thanks Judy. I cannot believe how many lunatics are out there just waiting for temp tattoos for Christmas. But you have a great excuse running about in barmaid garb all summer. (many assumptions had been made in this reply, author claims no responsibility for the accuracy of anything she says)
      Except this: I do hope you'll buy Saving Casey and love it. I've read it probably 30 times now, and I still love it.

  8. Lisa!!

    I LOST MY MIND, WANT THE TATS! I may go completely around the crazy corner and let my 14yr old daughter have them! Ha! Yes, they probably would go well with the random colored hair she sports at times. (Thank goodness she use food dye and it shortly washes away)

    Book looks marvelous!! Bet me and the daughter would fight over who reads first!


  9. Buy two copies then. I would hate to be responsible for marring of face AND causing a rumble. However, you should read the book first. Some serious issues are addressed in the book which may be too much for a younger teen.

  10. I've not LOST MY MIND and I still want to Tats. How great would that be?

  11. Ok this has to be the best blog post i read today... Love how you have a lunatic bag... I won't be a part of that as if i win and end up with face tattoos temp or not hubby might just lock me up with my calculator and accounting books and throw away the key lol...

    I plan on reading this book though very different... Thanks for being part of the blog hop and merry christmas.

    1. Dear non-lunatic Jeanette,
      I am relieved you exist. I was beginning to think the whole world had become lunatics wishing to mar their lovely face. Your place in this world is treasured. And thank you in advance for buying my book. It's hard for a debut author and every book sold counts, and ensures I can publish the next one. Prepare to laugh, cry and yell a lot. But do it when your husband isn't around. I don't want you locked up for reading my book.

  12. Lost my mind, want the tats.

    I am so glad I found you via this blog hop. :) I love your sense of humor. *g*

    Merry Christmas and thanks for the blog stop.

    1. How weird is this. I love people who love my humor too!!! We have so much in common. And we are so very rare. Like my character Cass, most people stare at me as if I've lost my mind.

  13. Um, want the tatts (skipping the lost my mind, I LOVE tatts although I wouldn't put them on my face). :P

    1. I probably shouldn't ask, but I exactly DO you plan to put these tats?

      And for the record, I'm only sending a pre-warning picture of the tats on the face.

  14. Happy Holidays,thanks for the awesome blog hop.

    1. A non lunatic! Yeah Sherry! Gotta have some sane people show up. Otherwise my lunatics won't feel special.

  15. Great hop & awesome giveaway! Thank you!! Happy holidays to you all! Best wishes and many blessings!

  16. Thanks for being on the hop & doing a giveaway. Happy holidays! I probably would rather have your book but I ride a Harley. I don't have any tattos but I could probably use some temp ones for when I go to a rally, maybe make me look more tough? LOL.

    1. I'll throw you in the lunatic bag, despite your failure to say the magic words.
