Happy and blessed New Year from Killer and me! (He insisted on wearing his party hat.) I'm so excited about what 2015 has in store, including a new monthly theme called #JLBgivesawayanINDIE starting in February (if you're interested in participating in the photo-a-day part, or even simply sharing the monthly giveaway, fill out the form below); a book or two coming out (or three, we'll see); and just a more restful year based on the way I see things going. :) Yay!

As most of you know, last year I did #JLBgivesawayaDVD: a monthly DVD giveaway. I wanted to interact with everyone and also give them a little something, and while my goal was kind of met, it didn't feel as though a whole lot came out of it. Part of the reason I love social media and blogging is because it's a way to make friends. To expand the #booklove camaraderie. That didn't happen as much as I'd hoped with the giveaways. And, considering I'm an indie author, I know there are some *great* underrated indie books, and felt that this year was going to be about concentrating more on them and getting them into YOU, the reader's, hands. Hence, #JLBgivesawayanINDIE. :) (For you international pals, yes, the giveaways will be international, but your winnings will have to be in ebook form, due to shipping costs.)

At this point, Rachel from The NerdHerd Reads and Ashley and Anna from For the Love of Books are on board to share the fun photo-a-day challenges and give shout-outs to each new monthly giveaway. Though they're the *official* hosts, so to speak, I'd absolutely love to have more readers/bloggers on board, so if you want to participate (by tweeting, doing a monthly blog post, et cetera), please sign THIS FORM, and I'll get back to you shortly. 

There's also another project I'm super-excited about for this year, but as it's in the very beginning stages, I can't say much about it yet. I promise to keep you posted!

One last tidbit of news: Tomorrow, Saturday the 3rd, Tabitha, Mandie, and I will be doing the first #nerdherdmovienight of the year and watching Step Up together. If you'd like to join in and watch with us, search for the hashtag on Twitter at 6:00 p.m. PST, and join the conversation! :)

Have a blessed weekend!

It's great that your latest giveaway theme will be supporting indie authors like yourself! Books that are lesser-known can still be amazing, and it's a good thing to get the word out :)

As always, I can't wait to see what you'll come up with next in your novels, and that other project definitely sounds exciting!
