HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!

Did you go to any Halloween parties over the weekend? I DID! And did you dress up like a pirate for the pirate costume contest? I DID!!

Don’t forget, YOU could win a signed copy of Cat O’ Nine Tails and swag for your pirate costume! So, lemme see them photos of you, your hubs/wifey, your offspring or your dog/cat (if your cat is so inclined) said photo can be something from this year or even from past Halloween times, clearly I’m not picky. Just send them on to me via email, patricialeever@gmail.com or you can pop on over and share it on my Facebook Page, you have until midnight PST, Thursday (Nov. 3rd) to get your photo in for consideration.

And, today is your last day of Lisa Sanchez’s Halloween Blog Hop and to share your favorite Halloween memory with me to be entered to win a signed copy of Cat O’ Nine Tails and swag, deets on Friday’s Happy Friday Blog.

Happy Friday: Boo To YOU!


Posted on by Patricia Leever

Happy Friday my blood sucking little love monkeys! Did you swoop down on this week like vampire in the night and drain it of its life’s blood? You are neck biting right you did!

Today begins a super awesome Halloween Blog Hop hosted by my fellow Omnific author, Lisa Sanchez!

So for my part, I’m giving away a SIGNED copy of Cat O’ Nine Tails (yep, you read that right, a signed paperback, a physical book that you can hold in your hands!) AND a complete swag set! Now before I get to the deets on how you go about winning said bookage and swagage, you might remember my mentioning the Santa Clarita Valley Main Street Zombie March that I was participating in with 3 of my 4 kids.

We had a BLAST! It was a food drive sponsored by one of the local comic book stores, Brave New World Comics. This was the third year they’ve done this and over that time they have collected over 3 metric tons of food for the Santa Clarita Valley Food Pantry! WOW, that is a lot of food! This is the second year we’ve “shambled” down Main Street and here we are this year

Heehee! You should have seen us getting the right blood look, it looked like a slaughter house in my kitchen.

The Grim Reaper guy was on some sort of Segway that he must have been strapped into because there was no handlebar thing, but I hope to shout he was AWESOME on that thing! Very ghostly and manuevered it like he was born on it!

Erin looks a wee bit evil here, doesn’t she? I would also like to note that all of our make-up and costuming was created by yours truly. Yep, that’s right, I don’t just write pirate sexy times, I can create some kick-ass zombies. I can also roll my eyes back in my head, like this ..

Spooky no? Heehee! There is also a video out there from Thomas Gapen, great job Thomas!

Zombie March from Thomas Gapen on Vimeo.

Okay, now onto the giveaway! All you need to do to enter is to leave me a comment with your favorite Halloween memory! It can be from your childhood, adulthood or parenthood. You have until midnight Oct. 31st PST to get your comments in and the winner will be chosen on Nov. 1st via one of those nifty random website places!

Don’t forget to check out Lisa’s blog to see who else is participating in the blog, because all of the participants are giving something away! And I KNOW my love monkeys love them some freebies!

ALSO, you have ANOTHER chance to win a signed copy of Cat O’ Nine Tails and swag set! All I need is a photo of you getting YOUR pirate on! Remember, I’m not picky, it can be you, your spouse, your offspring or your pet getting their pirate on, hell throw on a bandanna and an eye-patch and snap a photo. This giveaway is open until Nov. 3rd and the winner will be chosen by myself and my awesome marketer, Traci, and announce on Nov. 4th Happy Friday blog!

Well, that’s all I have for you my spooky little love monkeys. Stay tuned for tomorrow and the next stop on the Cat O’ Nine Tails Treasure Hunt Blog Tour!

Until next time,

Patty <3

Happy Friday: This Week’s Wrap-Up!


Posted on by Patricia Leever

Happy Friday my cheesy little love monkeys! Did you slide this week in a crisper sleeve and zap it in the microwave like a Hot Pocket? You’re shamalamadingdong right you did!

Are you getting all ready for Halloween? I sure as heck am! I’m not so much a house decorator as I am all about the costumes. Oh yeah, I do love me some dressing up and we are rocking not only one costume this year, but TWO!

Yep, you read that right and I’ll explain. This year we are not only dressing up for Halloween, but next weekend we (me, my mom, my middle son, Ryan, and the twins, Erin & Emma) are participating in Santa Clarita’s own, Brave New World Comics, Main Street Zombie March 2011! Y’all know how I love me some zombies so you KNOW I’m all about this! Ryan and I participated last year and had so much fun we’re bringing more family this year! It’s all for a good cause too; a canned food drive to benefit the Santa Clarita Valley Food Pantry. Do you live in the area and want to join in, come on down and get your zombie on with us!

So, this week there are not one but TWO Cat O’ Nine Tails e-book giveaways in the Treasure Hunt Blog Tour! There is some fun pirate trivia over at Kelsey’s Book Corner, you have until October 24th, so get your entries in!

Also, leave a comment over on Cheeky Reads with who your favorite pirate is to win, hurry because today is the last day!

BWS tips button

AND, don’t forget that there will be three, count ’em THREE, signed copies of Cat O’ Nine Tails up for grabs! Check out the deets in last week’s Happy Friday post HERE!

Well, that’s all I have for you this week ..

WAIT, I almost forgot! I got my first rating from a GUY! That’s right, I got a 4 star rating over on Goodreads from a male reader!

Okay, so NOW that’s all I have for you this week! Stay tuned next week for the next stop in the Cat O’ Nine Tails Treasure Hunt Blog Tour!

Until next time,

Hidey ho my leaptastic little love monkeys!

Have you all been keeping up with all the Cat O’ Nine Tails Treasure Hunt Blog Tour stops and giveaways? A new one popped up yesterday over at Cheeky Reads, leave your favorite pirate and email in her comments to be entered to win an e-copy of Cat O’ Nine Tails and some swag!

BWS tips button

Alrighty, it is Thursday and you know what that means? Yep, it’s time to grab your bestie, or a pretty boy ;), and get your leap frog on!

Of course, these days my leapin’ is less froggy and more wounded cow, too many attempts at jumping over the moon and ye old knees ain’t what they used to be. Don’t even get me started on the other various body parts that have been wounded/torn/separated. Oh yeah, I’m THAT chick. The thing is, I never get hurt doing anything cool, I get pushed down the stairs by a runaway laundry basket or get thwarted by a rogue training potty.

But, I digress, hop on over to Omnific’s Author! Author! Blog Hop! and bounce along with us!

That’s all I have for you today, stay tuned for tomorrow’s Happy Friday post!

Until next time,

Patty <3
