The celebration continues with Laura M. Baird and another #GiftCard #Giveaway!

 


The celebration continues with Laura M. Baird!



Hi Evernight readers! Thanks for taking the time to celebrate, read our blogs, and show interest in our work.

I, like many EP authors, feel so blessed to be part of the Evernight family. From my first acceptance to my most recent, the elation is always the same - extraordinary! And the support among the authors is amazing.

In my three years of being published, I've had the privilege of fourteen titles published with Evernight, and my fifteenth set for release in December. A sexy, snarky time-travel romance, featuring a sassy lass, a hot Scot, and dragons!

I'm working on several series, and most recently had books 3 & 4 released in my Shifter Clans series. What started as a story challenge turned into a 4-book series... and there just may be more in the future. Stay tuned to find out.

***GIVEAWAY***

To help celebrate Evernight's birthday, I'm awarding one lucky reader a $15- gift card from Evernight Publishing.

Since the holidays are coming up, and yes, this year may be a bit different for many of us, let's remember fond moments and blessings. Comment with a favorite holiday memory and a winner will be chosen to receive that gift card.
Good luck!

Feel free to follow my journey ~ I love engaging!

Beth D. Carter Shares Yumminess and a #GiftCard #Giveaway!

 


 

Happy Anniversary to Evernight Publishing from author Beth D. Carter!

 

What better way to celebrate an anniversary than with a decadent strawberry champagne cake? My first book with Evernight was “On Call Mistress”, published back in 2014, and I consider myself fortunate enough to be counted as part of the family. And that’s what we are…a big family. I hope you enjoy the cake recipe and the wonderful books of Evernight from all the talented authors. 

Leave a comment and I’ll draw from the proverbial hat one winner of an Evernight Publishing Gift Card!

 

Strawberries and Champagne Cheesecake


 


INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup champagne or other sparkling wine
  • 2 cups chocolate graham cracker crumbs (about 14 whole crackers)
  • 2 cups sugar, divided
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup sliced fresh strawberries
  • 3 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • TOPPING:
  • 20 fresh strawberries, hulled
  • 1/3 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon shortening, divided
  • 1/3 cup white baking chips
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar

DIRECTIONS

·       Place champagne in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil; cook until liquid is reduced to about 1/4 cup, about 8 minutes. Set aside to cool.

·       In a small bowl, combine the cracker crumbs, 1/2 cup sugar and butter. Press onto the bottom and 1-1/2 in. up the sides of a greased 9-in. springform pan; set aside. Arrange sliced strawberries over the bottom.

·       In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and remaining sugar until smooth. Beat in the sweetened condensed milk, cornstarch and reduced champagne. Add eggs and egg yolks; beat on low speed just until combined. Pour over strawberries. Place pan on a baking sheet.

·       Bake at 325° for 55-60 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Carefully run a knife around edge of pan to loosen; cool 1 hour longer. Refrigerate overnight.

·       Remove sides of springform pan. For topping, wash strawberries and gently pat with paper towels until completely dry. Slice and arrange over cheesecake. In a microwave, melt chocolate chips and 1/2 teaspoon shortening; stir until smooth. Drizzle over strawberries. Repeat melting and drizzling with white baking chips and remaining shortening.

·       In a small bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add confectioners' sugar; beat until soft peaks form. Serve cheesecake with whipped cream.

 

 

About Beth:

I began reading my mom’s Harlequin Presents in the fifth grade, and from the first story I knew I wanted to write romance novels. I like writing about the very ordinary girl thrust into extraordinary circumstances, so my heroines will probably never be lawyers, doctors or corporate highrollers.  I try to write characters who aren't cookie cutters and push myself to write complicated situations that I have no idea how to resolve, forcing me to think outside the box.  I love writing characters who are real, complex and full of flaws, heroes and heroines who find redemption through love.

Wine or Starbucks - Winner's Choice! #Giveaway from Evernight author Shari Elder

 Romance is an Experience to Be Savored #Giveaway for Evernight’s 10th Anniversary


Please welcome Evernight author Shari Elder....


Hello Everyone,

On a winter’s evening, there is nothing better than settling down in front of a roaring fire with a glass of red wine in one hand and a steamy Evernight romance in the other.  Perhaps some dark chocolate to nibble on?

Or would you prefer iced white wine with chilled, juicy fruit on a sweltering summer day as you dig into that sexy Evernight story you just can’t put down?  

Either way, romance is definitely an experience to be savored, don’t you think?


For those who don’t know me, I’m Shari Elder – thrilled member of this fabulous group of Evernight authors, and writer of Science Fiction Romance and Paranormal Romance, such as Race to Redemption.  Imagination is a keen part of a great love story!


****GIVEAWAY****

To celebrate Evernight’s 10th Birthday, I am holding a contest to win a $20.00 gift card to wine.com (only works in the U.S.  Non U.S. folks can get $20.00 gift card to a Starbucks for a drink of their choice. The same goes for those of you who don’t gush over wine like I do). Whichever prize you choose, I wanted to give you a little something to enjoy with your Evernight story.

Ready to play?  In the comments, let me know your favorite wine or your favorite drink. And your email so we can contact the winner.

And happy 10th Evernight.  I am looking forward to the next ten!

It's a #FANART #GIVEAWAY from Evernight author ~~> Katerina Ross

 

This month marks our 10th year of publishing smart and sexy romance! We're celebrating with a month-long party featuring giveaways and author features. 

Today please welcome Evernight author Katerina Ross with her special giveaway...

Happy birthday to Evernight Publishing! It’s nice that authors from many countries can find a home for their books with Evernight. I’m very glad to be one of them. I’m Russian, but I write M/M stories in English because it would be hard to officially publish them in my own country.

In addition to that, I enjoy drawing fanart, so my celebratory GIVEAWAY will be artistic ;) Sometimes both writers and readers can’t help but imagine certain actors playing their favorite characters. If you want me to draw a fanart of your choice for you (in digital form), confess: what would be your dream cast for one the EVERNIGHT books you love most?

 

Here are some of my drawings—and you can find more on my Tumblr blog if you’re so inclined ;) https://tenderlywicked.tumblr.com
