Love and Chocolate and Zombies from Bookreporter

Looking for a way to forget about the snow and ice and freezing temperatures? How about love and chocolate --- and zombies?

Just in time for Valentine's Day, my friends over at
Bookreporter have heated things up with a beautiful batch of delicious books, which includes a Book of Zombie Love Songs.

From now through February 4th, readers will have a chance to win one of five Valentine's Day prizes.

Featured authors include: Adriana Trigiani, Michael P. Spradlin, Susan Wiggs, Victoria Alexander, Caroline Leavitt and Robyn Carr.

Along with one copy of each of their featured books, winners will receive some yummy gourmet chocolate from Godiva --- including a heart-shaped box of truffles, a chocolate heart lollipop and a chocolate-dipped strawberry bar.

But act fast, the last date to enter is Feb 4. I can't enter because I write reviews and interviews for Bookreporter, but I hope my blog visitors will take a chance on love -- and chocolate.

While you're visiting the Bookreporter site, please check out my recent interview with Mary Burton. In Burton's interview she talks about how she creates such riveting characters, speculates on the similarities between baking and being an author, and gives readers a few hints about what they can expect in her suspense novel Senseless and its insta-sequel Merciless.

Bon appetit and bonne chance!


  1. Okay, Donna, you know you had me at Zombies! :-)

    Oh, I hope y'all are keeping warm! Where the heck is all this snow coming from??? Well, I know where it's coming from, but you know what I mean-take care!

  2. Donna, thank you for giving us another heads up on a "sweet" opportunity.

  3. Hi Cathy,
    You, too. The kiddos are enjoying their time off, but I think we're all starting to get cabin fever.

    Hi Barb,
    You are so welcome. Hope you're one of the winners. Wouldn't that be sweet?

  4. We had one day to enjoy the cabin and now we are all back to school and work. I did get three closets cleand out yesterday, go me! Stay warm while I head over for books and chocolate, what a great combination.

  5. I entered! Hope you have a delightful day!
