Day 4: Week of Love Giveaway


I hope you checked out the Rafflecopter on Brinda Berry’s site. There’s still time to win a number of great books.

Today is all about music. 

Music has always moved and influenced me, but it wasn’t until I was about nine years old that I realized how important it was to me.

I was in the car with my mom. As usual the radio station was on 98.7 Kiss FM. To say I had difficulty connecting with the music would be an understatement. During a commercial break, I committed the worst sin possible and turned the radio off. My mother said nothing, just eyed me suspiciously. I whipped out my cassette player and blasted She Bop by Cyndi Lauper.  

There was a twitch in my mom’s shoulders, but she didn’t say a word. After I’d played the album for the third time, she merely asked, “Playing it again?” Bless my mother. I’m grateful she gave me the opportunity to express myself and explore without criticism. I pray I can have that level of patience with my own children.



Today’s giveaway is a $5 iTunes gift card.




For a chance to win, all you have to do is leave a comment letting me know what song or genre of music inspires you to…write, get frisky in the boudoir, unwind or simply have fun. That’s it.

Make sure your comment is in by 0400 EST.

    Progressive rock inspires me to write, and I am always playing it while working on my manuscript.

  3. More of the older stuff inspires me. I grew up with all my parents music like Simon and Garfunkel and Jefferson Starship. I still love listening to them.
