Happy Blogiversary to ME!!!

It's time to CELEBRATE!

Two years ago, March 24, I started this blog. At that time I was self-published, had four released titles, and was a total unknown in the romance novel community. 

Two years later, I am happily published with a small press, have six released titles (one of which will be picked up and reprinted by my current publisher), and I am steadily making a name for myself as an author of deep, well-written romances in the traditional style. 

All in all, it's been a fun journey and I want to celebrate this milestone in true book blog fashion with... 


The prize: 
I have a "pile" of eBooks, generously donated by TreasureLine Books & Publishing. ONE VERY FORTUNATE WINNER will get TreasureLine's entire eBook catalog! A "virtual" TreasureChest of books! 

As a special bonus, I will throw in copies of each of my titles currently not with TreasureLine Publishing (except Heartless). Certain unreleased TreasureLine titles will also be included.* 


These books vary in genre so there is something for everyone. There are some bestselling authors and some lesser known authors in the mix. 

Genres included: 
  • romance 
  • fantasy 
  • Christian horror 
  • nonfiction & memoirs 
  • poetry 
  • short story collections 
  • thriller 
  • paranormal 
Authors included:

If you want, click any of the author names above to step over to their blog (a few are websites) and give them a follow too. Not required, but they would love to have you, I'm sure. All links open in a new tab or window, depending on your browser settings.

Happy bloggpy birthday. Mine isn't until August. I hope I can come with as great a giveaway as you.

Jaimey Grant said...

Thanx, Susan! And thanx for stopping by. :o)

I can't take all the credit for this giveaway. Linda Boulanger from TreasureLine came up with the idea and offered the eBooks. It was very generous of her.

You've been entered in the drawing. Congrats on being the first! LOL

Rachel Rossano said...

Happy Blogiversary! I will have to check when mine is. I have no idea; however, I do know I have been doing it a long time. :)

This is a great giveaway! I am definitely interested in entering. I prefer romance first, but fantasy is a close second. All have them have crossed my nightstand at one time or another.

You have my email. ;) And just in case you lost it, I shall be emailing you soon, hopefully tonight. :)

Jaimey Grant said...

Great, Rachel! Thanx! I'll watch for that email. :o)

Happy 2nd Birthday Jaimey! I am just beginning my journey with you and Treasureline and can't wait to publish my first book. You are a terrific example and I am so blessed to be in the 'family'! Blessings to you, Laura

What a great thing to celebrate!! I want to thank you for getting me back into the romance era I used to love. Even as a high school student I read Regency Romance novels, but then I kind of slid over to a darker side made up of murder and mayhem. :-/ Really, though, I'm pretty eclectic and read just about anything. That's what makes TLP so great..... it's cross genre'd!!! So congratulations, I love every book of yours I've read.

Aimee said...

Happy anniversary and congrats on all your publishing success. I'm a girl who loves historical fiction. I love a good romance though no matter what the genre. I've loved your books and can't wait for the release of your latest. Thanks for the awesome giveaway. :) Old follower.

Moore Family said...

Congratulations on your two years! I found out about this celebration from Good Reads Clean Romance group. So, you'd probably guess my favorite genre is Romance. I've been wanting to read some of your books, maybe this will give me a chance! I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Moore Family said...

Oops, I forgot my e-mail, sorry.

Lisa Lu said...

Oooh, I would love another romance or two! Clean romance is my fave, I do love a lot of other types, I love to read. Sign me up =)!

Jacquelyn said...

Happy 2nd blogging anniversary. It is a fantastic giveaway. What a treasure to get all those free books!

My favorite genre would be a toss up between romance and thriller. I know, polar opposites.

I don't have a blog yet, but I just got Wordpress for Dummies out of the library and I'm working on setting on up, but I'd be happy to follow you.

happy blogger birthday :)
my fave genre has to be historical romance and paranormal comes a very close second.

Moe1937 said...

Hi Jaimy. I'm Lori Boggs Mother and I am so glad she got me involved. It has been great getting to know you through Face Book. It's had to say what I like best because my interest are so widespread but probably Regancy and Historical. Congratulations on your two years.

IandSsmom said...

Happy blogiversary!!! My favorite genre I say is thriller mystery but I love a good romance or horror. Really I read anything! I read a Christian horror novel once because my girlfriend went to school with the author but my friend doesn't like horror so I read to find out about it and it was really good! What a fun giveaway! I just got my sony reader so it would be nice to load it up!!! :)

I love romance!

Shay said...

Happy Blogoversary and congratulations! :)

I like ALL the genres above (haha) but I think Christian horror intrigues me the most. I can't say I've ever read it but I think it sounds interesting.

My email's on my profile!

Emily Patterson said...

Congrats on 2 years, what an achievement!! Fantasy is my favourite genre but romance is a close second. The 2 together is my idea of reading heaven.

Jaimey Grant said...

Thank you all so much for stopping by, following, and entering my drawing. This is so exciting and all of you joining the party makes it even better! :o)

Msmissy71 said...

First of all, Happy Blogbirthday!!!!! 2 years I imagine takes a lot out of you so I applaud your tenacity.

my fav genre would have to be paranormal. I love all the variations of traits described from author to author. (well, I have to be brutally honest, vamps should not sparkle in sunlight *SMH*)

Happy Blogiversary! :)

My favorite genre is "intelligent" romance... not the shirt-ripping, button popping stuff, but... stuff that gets the blood pumping and hormones raging with a decent plot and ultimately great message? That's my genre of choice! :)

Following you now, as a fellow e-author!

Ria said...

Regency romances of course, although I also like mysteries.

Good thing like writing, huh?

Congratulations :D
