Author Guest Post & Giveaway: Amanda Hocking (My Blood Approves)

Today for the August Blogger Birthday Bash, I have the pleasure of introducing the author of the MY BLOOD APPROVES SERIES, Amanda Hocking, who is stopping by again for the event to do a guest post and throw in a little giveaway!

The fourth book in her My Blood Approves series, WISDOM, comes out TODAY! (August 22nd!)


My birthday is in the middle of July, and I always felt gypped when I was a kid. During the school year, kids would hand out invitations to most of the kids in the class for there parties, and they would big deals.

But mine was in the summer, and I never had the forsight to get my classmates phone numbers or addresses, so I had like three friends and my cousins at my parties.

I think that’s why as an adult, I always make a big deal out of them. I plan them months in advance so I can invite people as soon as I can. This year, I sent out e-vites back in March for an event on July 17th.

Because I’m a movie buff and blockbusters usually come out around July 4th, I’ve had a lot of movie themed birthday parties. Once it was The Lion King, and I was so excited to see it that I threw up on the way to the theater. I also had a Jurassic Park party two years in a row. I was that cool.

For my eighteenth birthday, I dyed my hair blue, got a tattoo, and saw Reign of Fire with Christian Bale. Well, the movie starrred Christian Bale. I didn’t see it with him. If I had, that would probably be the best birthday ever.

As a kid, I hated having a summer birthday, but now I love it. Because of Christmas and my birthday, I get presents every six months. Plus, its summer, so I can go camping or go to amusement parks or do just about anything I want.

But whenever your birthday is and no matter how old you get, you should always make a big deal out of it. It’s the one day of the year to celebrate you, and that’s pretty awesome.
