cyndiholiday2016
Woohoo! The holidays are back, the decorations are up, and sparkles light up the house! I even wrap all of my wall art to look like gifts. It’s a silly family tradition and I’d love to read your traditions in the comment section. I just love spending the holidays with my family! Plus, bonus I get to also enjoy the season with my fabulous readers by offering freebies and….participating in
The Holly Jolly Facebook Page Hop!
holly-jolly-hop
This year I am taking part in the HOLLY JOLLY HOP on Facebook. This HOP features 70 Authors and over $1000 in Prizes! It’s easy to enter…all you need to do is follow the hop from one Author’s Facebook page to another until you get through all 70 Authors pages. There are even some groups hosting scavenger hunts! For instance, the Fiction Book Readers Group is taking part and some examples of the prizes will be gift cards and Harry Potter Illustrated.

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000039_00009]
“Great characters, intense unique plots, mystery and legends come together to create exciting, suspenseful and page turning tales that will keep you coming back for more.” –Reviewer
Open your heart to the road home.
No Chance in hell… Mason Jayme is rumored to be a healer and the one prophesized to save his hometown of Whisper Cove from an ancient Lover’s Curse. Until that curse is broken, however, he has no business taking a lover—a lesson harshly learned after Mason sleeps with his first love, Katrina Rendon. Believing he’s the reason Katrina was burned and scarred, Mason leaves town, rejecting any notion he can be good for anyone, let alone a whole town.
Her only hope… Katrina was far more devastated by Mason’s rejection than the injuries she sustained in a fire. She wants nothing to do with him—until her father falls ill, and the only way to save him is with Mason’s healing skills. When Mason returns to Whisper Cove, he promises not only to heal her father but to help Katrina open her burn victim retreat. Once reunited, the passion between Katrina and Mason sparks higher than ever.
But, when Katrina’s soul is threatened by an Original Spirit who’s claimed Mason’s body as his own, she’s caught in a whirlwind of spirit possessions and secret rituals. This time, Mason is ready to risk death by fire in order to save Katrina and their love.

Halloween Treat (Prizes)

 FariaHalloweenSR

Just in time for Halloween, Spirit Returned is out and receiving wonderful reviews. I want to thank everyone who has FB shared, tweeted, or featured Mason and Katrina’s story on their blog! Halloween holds special memories for me that include an elementary mummy costume fiasco where my bindings simply unraveled! I’ve been a princess, a witch more times than I can count because I fell in love with both Wizard of Oz witches, a tattered Frankenstein’s bride…and even Daisy Duke—Yikes!

In celebration of my new release—and I hope you add Spirit Returned to tonight’s Halloween reading venue—one lucky commenter will win a digital copy of Spirit Returned by sharing their Halloween Costume successes and/or disasters. Also, don’t forget to enter the rafflecopter below for more prizes!
