It's a par-tay!

Today may seem like any other Tuesday, but it's not. Oh no. Because today, Ann is releasing her first paranormal romance and let me tell you, I couldn't be more happy for her.

Warning: shameless gushing to follow. What's in it for you? A chance to win a free book so pipe down.

I met Ann about the same time she was finishing up Blue Diablo, and she asked me to give it a read, offer an opinion. I thought it was such a neat concept (and who doesn't like Ann?) that I agreed. Boy was that the easiest favor I ever did. Blue Diablo is about a woman named Corine who can touch something and have visions about the person who owned it. Needless to say, lots of people want to find her. When her ex-boyfriend Chance (who has the gift of luck) succeeds, he pulls her into a dangerous world of black magic, witchcraft and demons.

The supernatural world in this book is really amazing and I practically wanted to move in with two of the secondary characters - they were that much fun. So congratulations, Ann. I think you're going to earn a lot of new fans with this one.

Now who wants to win a free copy of Blue Diablo? Since this book is named after a drink, just tell us your favorite alcoholic or non-alcoholic drink and you're entered. Good luck!

Mojito - current drink of choice or Caprhina (I hope that I spelled that one right.)

Amy said...

My favorite acoholic drink would be a Sour Amaretto.:) My husband is forever laughing at me over my love for girly drinks.:)

Margay said...

I don't drink alcohol, so I will have to say that my favorite drink is either coffee or flavored water.

Happy Release Day to Ann!

I've never been an alcohol drinker, so I'd have to say two of my favorite beverages are coca cola and chocolate milk! :)

As part of the party, Ann joined me over at the Butterfly blog for one of my infamous interviews.

You can catch it here.

I've been looking forward to Blue Diablo too. Love her Jax series.

Favorite drink would be a Margarita - no salt.

CrystalGB said...

My favorite drink is a long island iced tea.

Jessica Kennedy said...

I love me some Blackberry Arbor Mist wine! I've been having one glass a night, but I ran out last night. :*(

Luckily I also bought a bottle of Strawberry White Zinfandel too! Woohoo!

I enjoy Bahama Mama's too! :) So much I like I could keep going!

donnas said...

Depending on my mood I love Mojito's, Margaritas or a Vodka Sunrise.

Ann Aguirre said...

I love the margarita, myself.

Arkansas Cyndi said...

I've been hooked on Circo Grape Martini. YUMMMM

Lisa F. said...

Frozen margaritas are my favorite alcoholic drink, and Dt. Dr. Pepper for non-alcoholic. Thanks for the contest, and the book sounds wonderful.

ilona said...

I am a tea-totaller (literally) and my favourite drink is Rooibas and Vanilla tea.

Ann Aguirre said...

Mmmm, frozen margarita.

I feel I have to make one clarification; Blue Diablo is urban fantasy, not paranormal romance. That means the romance will be spread out slowly over the course of the series. I do promise a HEA, though.

Lou said...

I don't drink alcohol, but my favourite drink has to be freshly squeezed lemonade, ice cold! May not be exciting, but it does the job for me. :)

Chris said...

Lakefront Brewery's New Grist gluten-free beer for alcoholic beverages and soy mochas for non-alcoholic beverages.

Carmen R said...

My favorite is just plan ole beer (budlight)I'll drink mixed drinks but it's not often.

Amy S. said...

My favorite alcoholic drink is strawberry daiquiri, and diet pepsi is my fave non-alcoholic

Jane said...

I love mango margaritas.

Angiegirl said...

Hm, gotta go with a good, old fashioned vanilla Coke. And hooray for a promised HEA. :)

Angie Fox said...

Sorry Ann! Half the time, I don't know what my books are, either. They're called both.

e_booklover said...

My favorite would have to be a Chocolate Mudslide, I can take it with or without alcohol depending on who is driving :), which is usually me.

Angie Fox said...

Oh and I'm a beer girl.

Pam P said...

I like sweet, Kahlua and cream or Bailey's on the rocks forme.

Caffey said...

My favorite drink is a Screwdriver! Ice cold Peach Snapps with Orange Juice!

Marie said...

My favorite is Chocolate Monkey or just regular diet coke.

wildwitch said...

One drink...hmm...haven't had a drink in years! Okay...White Russian...yumm!

miki said...

LOL! Angie, I once got tipsy off a fountain vanilla coke. I didn't KNOW real vanilla contains alcohol!

My favorite drink would be a nice Merot or a Shiraz, either the Australian cheap stuff or Trader Joe's Velvet Moon. If I pay more then ten bucks a bottle, it better be DARNED nice! : )

Ann Aguirre said...

No worries, Angie. I just didn´t want readers to be sad when the romance arc is ongoing, not summed up in 1 book.

Pissenlit said...

No need to enter me.

I don't have a favourite alcoholic drink(I have several favourites...heh!)...my favourite non-alcoholic drink might be Red Rose Tea with a bit of 2% or whole milk...or maybe a half orange, half grape slushie.

Happy book release day, Ann!

Ann Aguirre said...

Thanks for your good wishes!

Jackie Ballway said...

White Russian. Why? Because The Dude abides. : )

Jessica Kennedy said...

Woohoo! I'm so excited to have won! Thanks so much guys!

*toasting w/ glass of wine*

Angiegirl said...

Miki, that's hilarious!

Ann, I'm fine with prolonged tension and uncertainty. In fact, I'm a fan of it!
