Valentine's Day Blog Hop!

Here is the link to the main page of the Valentine’s Day Blog Hop.

Hello and Happy Valentine’s Day! *Waves* Come on in. I’m M.A. Church (or Michelle, or just plain M, lol) and I write M/M romance that often has a scifi or nonhuman twist.  

I’m going to keep this brief since you guys are hopping, and there's a lot of cool authors' to visit. 

1.  First place winner gets a $10.00 Amazon GC.

2.  Second place winner gets their choice of a book from my back list.

3. Third place winner gets their choice of book from my back list.


How to Enter:
~Tell me, if you had to pick, which you prefer to receive for Valentine’s Day: flowers or candy? If you have time, tell me why!

~I’d really like it if you’d follow my blog. :)

~When you comment, leave me an email addy. When the hop is over, I’ll post on here who won. I’ll also email you to double check I have the correct email addy. Check your spam, just to be safe. Sometimes emails to winners end up there. I’ll give the winners 72 hours to respond, and if I haven’t heard back, then I’ll pick a new winner. 

As for me, I’d like to have the candy. Chocolate all the way, baby, lol! Flowers are nice, but they die so soon. My favorite is white roses, but I told the hubby years ago to stop getting them for Valentine’s Day. *laugh* now he buys plants that I can put in my flower beds. Hope everyone has a great day.
Keep an eye out for Cupid lol. *wink*



  1. I prefer chocolates than candies. Maybe because the idea of giving candies than chocolates is rare my country. They give chocolates than candies...

    And for the flowers I prefer that was planted in a pot 'coz you can take good care of it at least it will last longer depends on how you take good care of it.


  2. My fav would be chocolate I have a huge sweet tooth but mostly because I already get a flower from my father Its a tradition that my father gives all of his daughters a pink rose and my mother a dozen red(him) four pink(us 4 girls) two white(2 sons).So when I do acually have a valentine I want candy or a teddy bear.

  3. Happy Valentine's Day!

    Regards, (A Growing Teenager Diary) ..

  4. I would have to say a flower. Not a picked or cut one though. I love blooming cacti. They are string and resilient and hard as hell to kill. They're so mundane and boring looking, but there is so much life in them. Then they bloom and it's just amazing.
    Also, they're the only plants that my cart won't try to eat!

  5. Definitely chocolate because it's my favorite food group ;-)


  6. I eat too much sweets anyway, so my choice would be flowers :)

  7. I'm more of a chocolate person. For me flowers are sweet but I love chocolate more and that way I can share them with my Valentine and spread the love.


  8. I would choose chocolates because of my sweet tooth. Thanks for the contest!

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  10. That's a tough choice. I guess it depends on what kind of flowers we're talking. If it's living flowers, than I'll definitely say candy. I lovvvvve me some candy, but then again I usually go bargain shopping for myself on the 15th. All that candy, 50% off. Anyway. If it's fake flowers, like the roses made out of feathers, than I'd love the flowers. I hate seeing people cut flowers that are just going to die, but fake flowers are gorgeous.

    Of course, you could always just kill two birds with one stone and buy chocolate roses. ;3


  11. I would getting either, or maybe both ;) Love your stories :)

  12. definitly chocolate no way with candies , and for the flowers i would love just a plain bouquets of lilies because they're my all time favorite

  13. I would have to say that I much prefer chocolate. Flowers only look pretty for a few days before they start to die. Chocolate tastes good no matter when you eat it. Thanks for doing the hop!


  14. potted flowers! I love chocolate but when you look at the flowers(potted, not cut) feel happy every time you look at them!


  15. CHOCOLATE!!!


  16. I guess candy because the way to a man's heart is through his stomach right? (but really I would prefer a bootleg of fine scotch whiskey). Thank you for the chance to win.


  17. Being that I'm single I'd love either one right now!

    But, if I had to choose, I love flowers. They always make a room more cheery for me.

  18. Wow we're like two chocolates in a box because I rather have chocolate than flowers. I mean flowers are pretty to look at but chocolate is such a treat. I have always had a sweet tooth which I had to tone down, so I wouldn't get cavities. But chocolate will always be in my heart and my better half better know that! :)

  19. This is hard. Not a fan of cut flowers, not crazy about chocolate, plus diabetic. There's a third traditional valentines gift: Jewelry! Some silver and amber handcrafted stuff would be lovely!

  20. If I have to choose just one, I always go for chocolate...Usually I get both and sometimes jewelry too...My hubby loves to spoil

  21. I would choose candy. Flowers are pretty but I'm just not the kind of person to want flowers. I tend to be more of a tomboy and flowers are more my sisters thing.

  22. Candy!
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  23. I prefer chocolates

  24. I can't resist chocolate, even though flowers are lovely!


  25. i really like getting flowers. just cause i can have chocolate anytime, but flowers just seem more special and unique. :)

  26. I would prefer to get neither... And my husband doen't beleive me! Flowers die to fast andd I don't really have a sweet tooth. So I want a steak dinner or a cheese basket or something more on the savory side.
    Thank you,

  27. I am going to be the odd person here (but that's just me...)
    My answer is NIETHER... Chocolate you can get anytime and flowers just die.

  28. Happy Valentine's Day to you too!! lol... and I would always prefer Candy over flowers because even though they're nice they die so fast. and yeah sure candy doesn't last that long either cuz I'd eat it all in once sitting (lol) but it will at least satisfy me. lol..
    So Chocolates/candy over flowers always. ;)


  29. Flowers I think, because I'd have to do more workouts at the gym if I got the candy, lol.


  30. I love chocolate but am on a diet so this year flowers!

  31. I love both chocolate and flowers but there's just something about getting a bouquet of lilies or tulips(my favorite flowers ;), I don't if it's the smell of them or the pretty colors. but they can always brighten up my day

  32. I'd rather have chocolates cuz they dont die on you. Thanks for the giveaway.

  33. Definitely candy. Well, chocolate.
    I worked at a flower shop as a teen & having to dress up as the Easter Bunny & a modified Cupid in addition to wrapping about a bazillion poinsettias against cold at Christmas makes flowers a bit unpalatable.
    But chocolate? Chocolate is awesome.

  34. chocolate my fav indulgence! - regnod(at)yahoo(d0t)com

  35. I love chocolate. Thanks for the giveaway.

  36. chocolate is my fav food group - regnod(at)yahoo(d0t)com

  37. Thanks for the giveaway! Sometimes I wish I was swept away by someone's love especially on Valentine's Day. Being young, I have yet to have the opportunity. If I could choose any man in the world to sweep me away, I would certainly choose Alexander Skarsgard. He's nice, funny, polite and well educated. If I could pick a fictional man, I would choose Jamie Fraser from "Outlander." With his rough physicality, loving sensibility, and fierce passion, I know I would be happy for the rest of my life. I wish I could be swept away to New Zealand or Scotland, somewhere beautifully green and primitive.
    Enough with my epic daydreams…
    Happy Valentine's Day!
    I would want whatever comes from the heart.

  38. Definitely candy! Flowers die so quickly! So flowers if they're live flowers, but candy if they're dead flowers. :)

  39. I like both. i absolutely love chocolate. they are irreplaceable. lolz :p
    I like flowers too. They give me a happy feeling which brightens my mood every time i see them.

  40. for me flowers and chocolates are the best combination!
    i don't mind artificial flowers or a living ones and I like chocolates more than candy.

  41. I prefer the candy, i love all things sweet! Thanks for the giveaway, I follow your blog.

  42. I'll take the candy. I'd love to appreciate flowers when they are alive not cut. I have two rose bushes and they'll bloom in may and June.

    thanks, I hope your Valentine's Day was a good one

  44. Both! I love flowers because they represent special occasions to me. I love candy because well who doesn't!

  45. I am like you, I much prefer the candy, or jewelry works too! Flowers die and seem like such a waste of money to me. I guess I am not very romantic in real life! I get all those emotions out by reading. Real life romance never measures up to books or our fantasies.

    Thanks for the great giveaway,

  46. Well, I would prefer the candy. I love flowers as well, don't get me wrong, but somehow I prefer to get a gift of chocolate.

  47. I'd like the candy. Flowers are pretty, but they're simply decorative. I prefer the edible goodies ;)
