Special Announcement: Join Us and These Amazing Authors for Our Three Year Blogiversary Blowout!!!

It’s really kind of hard to believe that we’re celebrating our 3rd blogiversary. For those of you who don’t know it started out with just me, but I quickly realized that in order to have the kind of blog I really wanted I would need others who were like minded. So I began building a team, and what a team I have. Their dedication to finding books and authors they believe in matches my own, and really that’s what our focus has always been and will continue to be. One of my goals with this blog was to find ways to support books/authors beyond a review, a cover reveal, an occasional guest post, and all modesty aside…I think we do that and do it very well.

I also wanted this to be a fun place for people to visit, and I sincerely hope that YOU…our readers, our supporters, our followers find that to be the case. There are so many book blogs for you to choose from, so when you choose to click one of our links, or when you enjoyed a post and clicked on one of the share buttons, or left a comment, or tweeted/retweeted on Twitter, liked/shared on Facebook?!? Well, that lets us know that all the time and effort we put into Bookish Temptations is absolutely worth it. Thank you!

To the many authors who have worked with us, who have given us guest posts…not just this year but over the past three I want to tell you something. We never, ever take you for granted. We still fangirl when you say yes to a request to appear on our blog. We appreciate the time you take, the giveaways you offer, the links you provide on social media and your website…every single time. Thank you!

Now I know that some of you didn’t come here to read a speech…you just want to know the good stuff. Am I right?!? 😉

Ok then…here you go. It’s with great pleasure that I share the authors who will be joining us as we celebrate our third year…

Tamie and Elena Interview the Professor AND the Snarky Narrator from Gabriel’s Redemption by Sylvain Reynard

Knowing that we were about to have a sit down with both the Professor AND the Snarky Narrator from the Gabriel trilogy by Sylvain Reynard (in the same room…at the same time no less) Elena and I were both relieved when the limo that was sent to whisk us away to the top secret location arrived early. We knew we’d need a little extra time to get ourselves together so that we wouldn’t dissolve into drooling idiots in front of the two men we lust after, desire madly want to make a good impression on. You might think we’d be calmer about the whole thing since this isn’t our first encounter with either of them, but c’mon…this is Gabriel and the SN we’re talking to.

We’d done the whole girly thing the day before…shopped like mad women, trying to find the perfect dresses, heels, under garments…Wait! What?!? Of course we went shopping for sexy underwear…what if one or both of us passed out cold in front of them?!? Hopeful Smart women are always prepared you know. Anyways…that morning we treated ourselves to the mother of all salon experiences…mani pedi, facials, hair and makeup…O yeah…the whole nine yards.

And now it was finally time…be still my thundering heart and please don’t let me hyperventilate…
