A-Z Challenge, "F" for Fred & Free Sh** Fairy

The A-Z Challenge for today is with the letter "F."  And since we're talking about characters, meet my JRT, Fred.  If you're a long-time minion, than you already know about Fred.  But for those who don't here are five fabulous facts about Fred.
1.  Fred snores.  Yes, all 16 lbs. of him snore.  
2.  Fred has a bed in nearly every bedroom in the house. 
3.  Fred likes to chase squirrels.  Duh, what dog doesn't.
4.  Fred loves our mail person.  She bribes him with treats. :0)
5.  Fred follows me around all day in my house.  

And he're is a typical picture of him by my side while I'm working. Remember to stop by and say hi to  Schatze over at Mary’s BookHounds too.  That one of Fred's babes.

My Free Sh** Fairy!  Here's my other "F" Word.  Did you know I have a "Free Sh** Fairy?"  Sure do! Woot. She scrounges around, searching for free sh** (okay books) for my giveaways.  I love her for that don't you?  Well, my minions do.  Anyway, here's the dealio.  I'm participating in the Hoppy Easter Eggstravaganza Giveaway Hop from April 6th to 12th, hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer & Yara @ Once Upon A Twilight

My Free Sh** Fairy came to me perplexed with which book to give away.  Like a Queen holding court I responded, "Let them choose!"  And so minions....I give you your choices.  Before I mention them, I must relay: One (1) lucky winner can choose one (1) of the three upcoming HOT YA releases for their prize.  Those choices are:

Out May 1st 
Out May 1st
Out April 24th
Why did I choose these?  First of all, I'm a huge Rachel Caine fan and her Morganville Vamp series.  HUGE!  Second, I hear nothing but good things from Veronica Roth's Divergent series and Julie Kagawa's The Immortal Rules series. So I thought...what the hey!  Want to know how to enter? blog, my rules. Muahahahah!!

Mina Fred is your "helpless helper" all 16 lbs of him, my Chihuahua has a bed in every too too!
Black Dawn is calling me, Mom got a copy of Last Breath to give me for Easter so even though I really really love The Iron Fey and am looking forward to reading the take on Vampires by Kagawa am crossing my digits wanting Caines Morganville gang instead.
Happy Easter to you and yours and thanks for three great choices from the free sh**fairy!

I love Fred. I want a Fred! He is so adorable, how can you not love him? Great giveaway Mina! I'm liking that Insurgent book but they all look awesome.

Robyn Campbell said...

I love Fred! I have a Fred, actually. But his name is Frodo.

Great post, bodacious giveaway. I prefer Insurgent, but it doesn't matter. They are all great. *waving*

Jocelyn Rish said...

Fred is adorable! I guess you could say my dog has a bed in every room too, since there is a couch or a people bed in every room and those are all automatically HER beds.

Your post made me smile because I combined my dog and a giveaway in one post, too. Although I did mine for the letter D (for Doggie DNA).

Wishing you continued success with the A to Z challenge,
