#Hello2016 #Bloghop Hello, My Name Is…

Thursday, January 7th, 2016
my name is

 

Anne Lange!

We’re ringing in the New Year with lots of giveaways!

And by sharing some fun and wacky facts about ourselves. There’s a new giveaway at each stop so be sure to visit them all!

So, let’s see, things about me and/or my blog…well:

  1. I’m a Canadian. I was born in Montreal, Quebec, grew up in Southern Ontario and now live in Easter Ontario. Yes, I can speak French, but I don’t consider myself bilingual. In fact, I’ve been taking French lessons over the last few years because I didn’t use it for over 20 years … and you know what they say … if you don’t use it, you lose it! I need practice.
  2. I have 9 tattoos. I love them. I want more. Just haven’t had the time to get them done.
  3. I HATE…as in H.A.T.E. spiders. Give me a snake any day. Point the tiniest of spiders in my direction and I will run like the demons from hell are after me.
  4. I am VERY shy. Like majorly shy. But in that quirky way life has of tossing things in your direction you want nothing to do with, over the years in my day job, I have given so many presentations to a variety of audiences for various reasons that I lost count long ago. And I still hate doing them.
  5. I love to cook and bake. I hate following recipes. People will tell you that when you’re baking you must follow the recipe precisely… I say pshaw … I can do whatever I want, and it usually turns out very edible. 🙂 Just don’t ask me to repeat it, but I didn’t write it down the first time.
  6. I have a horrible short term memory. My long term memory is fantastic. I can tell you what I did last week. I can’t tell you what I just wrote on the previous line 😉
  7. I’ve had a lap dance by both a male stripper and a female stripper. Both were HOT.  But I need to know…just what the hell are you supposed to do with your hands!
  8. I write contemporary and erotic romance, but my absolute favorite to read is actually romantic suspense. One of my all time favorite authors is Suzanne Brockmann.   My mom reads my erotic romance though…that’s a little awkward.  Hard to know what to say when you’re in the middle of a naughty ménage scene and your mom asks about how’s it going.
  9. I have NEVER read or watched the Harry Potter series. I know. I know. But, I’m really just not interested. But I LOVED the Lord of the Rings Trilogy.
  10. I had a dog, King, when I was a teenager. He was  a beautiful big Golden Retriever, and he was an awesome judge of character. If he didn’t like my boyfriends, he typically wedged himself between us.  That was the sign the guy had to go. 😉

I just realized none of these have to do with my blog, but then my blog has been dedicated mostly to promoting other authors work rather than my own.  And, I have a brand new website coming soon.  If you’d like to join my Fan Group or Street Team, I’m always ready to welcome new members.

#ChristmasTreats #BlogHop Christmas Treats Giveaway Hop

Christmas banner

 What are your favorite Christmas Treats?

Books, of course!

Stop by each blog for a chance to win fabulous books & gifties for the Holidays!

What Books Do You Want To Get For Christmas?

I have plenty of favorite authors to choose from and it’s always difficult to decide, but I’ve already set aside a book I plan to read over the holidays, Shayla Black’s Wicked For you. I LOVE the Wicked Lover’s Series

10-wicked_for_you-highres-200x300Ever since he rescued her from a dangerous kidnapper, Mystery Mullins has wanted Axel Dillon. When he returned her to her Hollywood father and tabloid life, she was grateful…and a little in love. Mystery wasn’t ready to let Axel go, even after the soldier gently turned her away because, at nineteen, she was too young.

Now, six years later, Mystery is grown, with a flourishing career and a full life—but she’s still stuck on Axel. Disguised, she propositions him in a bar, and the night they spend together is beyond her wildest dreams. Mystery steels herself to walk away—except the sheets are barely cold when her past comes back to haunt her.

Once he realizes Mystery isn’t the stranger he thought, Axel is incensed and intrigued. But when it’s clear she’s in danger, he doesn’t hesitate to become her protector—and her lover—again. And as the two uncover a secret someone is willing to kill for, Axel is determined to claim Mystery’s heart before a murderer silences her for good
