Happy Birthday... to me!

Yay! It's my birthday and I'll do what I want to, cry if I want to, you'd cry to if it happened to you... and the song goes on and on and I still have not figured what happened to the singer that made her cry.
Well, I am a year older, but with age comes the wisdom. How many times have you heard people say 'if I knew then what I know now...'?
But no birthday confetti or cake for me. Confetti make a huge mess and clog the vacuum and cake, well the calories from the icing and sugar in it are hard to burn off. Unless I burn them while I vacuum confetti off the carpet.

So in any case, I've decided to celebrate the old fashion Croatian way. Which means, it's my birthday, my treat. Therefore, I'l be gifting an eBook copy of my d├ębut novel "Bonded by Crimson" along with Avon's Empowerment Circle of support necklace and matching coin purse. I just love gifts that give back. And this is a great cause.

 Did you know that one in three women will experience some form of violence in her lifetime? That is why Avon has donated nearly $40 million globally to help end domestic and gender violence. 100% of proceeds goes to the Avon Foundation for Women to benefit programs dedicated to women's empowerment and prevention of domestic violence. 

To be entered in the draw, simply leave a comment with your emal addy so that I can contact the winner. If you already have the book but would still like to be entered in the draw, please mention it in your comment. I'd love for everyone to have fair chance at the prize. 


  1. Don't want to enter, dear friend, but I wish you a very happy and wonderful birthday. To hell with the vacuum, just celebrate like there's no tomorrow and dive into a sea of confetti!

    Here's to you!

    1. Thanks Piper. I'm getting a small cake for later. Mostly because the boys want it, wink, wink...


    And many more with lots of books out there.

    I have your wonderful book so I'll pass on the contest but just wanted to stop by and say:


  3. Happy Birthday! I hope your having a wonderful day and that you and your family are safe! :)
    And its great the way your incorporating support of woman against violence. Ive had family members who have been in that position. Its scary, very sad and heartbreaking. Anyone that finds themselves in that situation, i hope they get out and soon and find happiness.
    I hope you have a great day! Enjoy your birthday! ;)
    Happy Birthday!!
