Join The Power of Love Bloghop

Looking for a Valentine's Day M/M Bloghop? Then look no more, lol. Julie Lynn Hayes and I have started The Power of Love Bloghop. This is our first blog hop! The object of the hop is to have fun and find new readers. And guys, you don't have to be published. All you need is a blog/website. :) Click the name of the hop (above) and that'll take you to the sigh ups. :) 

So, the few rules lol:

Item #1: We will give you a graphic for the blog hop. The graphic must be put in the CONTEST blog post. Either the code or this link MUST be put in the contest post:
You are responsible for your own contest and picking distribution of your prize. We ask that you please put the graphic in the BLOG POST and not just on your blog page (if you put it on your blog page also, that would be awesome) but it needs to be in both places. We don’t want to confuse or anger the readers, that rather defeats the purpose, doesn’t it? Those who find they can’t or won’t do it will receive an email, and if the situation is not rectified, they will be removed from the blog. Sorry.
Also BOTH the Link and Graphic are mandatory to have to join the hop. So please put them in your post.

Item #2: Please take off captcha, if you have it, for the duration of the hop. Again, it defeats the purpose as it tends to annoy people and some will just give up and leave.

Item #3: Contest/Giveaway Yes, it is mandatory that you have some sort of contest or giveaway. It’s what people want and expect, and since we’re going to the trouble and expense of setting this up, we don’t think it’s unreasonable to make this request. It doesn’t have to be a book, it can be anything, including GC’s, swag, or any fun item you can think of. Be creative! Michelle and I will be giving away candy hearts and crocheted pillows. Have fun with it!
Did we cover everything? Probably not lol. Oh yes, content. What are you supposed to be blogging about? Well, it’s a Valentine’s Day hop about gay love, so what more natural than talking about love in some way? How you do it is up to you. You can write a post about Valentine’s Day, about gay love, about the love between your characters, or any other variation you can think of. 
You can promo your books to your heart’s content. Just don’t forget about the giveaway. And the link you sign up with cannot be a link to your books on Amazon or any other site. That goes against the spirit of the hop.

We appreciate each and every one of you for signing up for our first blog hop. We’re still learning, so please go easy on us lol. Hope you all have a great day!
