The Astraea Press authors were given the challenge to write a short story between 3K to 5K words that incorporates love and diamonds. Using their varied talents and creativity, fifteen Astraea Press authors were up for the task. These stories have formed the Valentine's Day Anthology.
The authors of the anthology have organised a blog hop called a scavenger hunt and there are prizes to win. Book bundles to be exact - see the bottom of this blog post for a comprehensive list of the book bundles offered as prizes. There may be additional surprises along the way too.

It's close to Valentine's Day or you could even be reading the blog on Valentine's Day. All over the world people celebrate those they love on this day. Cards, flowers, gifts, and messages are sent to billions of people. Often people send a favourite song or dedicate it to the one they love.
Music is a powerful force, as powerful, in my opinion, as a story. A story touches our hearts, entertains us or even makes us scared. Music can do the same thing. It can take you into another world - a dream world and an escape from the harsh realities of life. There's nothing like playing your favourite songs when you're feeling tired, down, or even happy - something to sing or dance to.
Some couples have a couples' song. It's the song that represents their relationship. The song I share with my husband and which he often tells me is playing on the radio is the Shania Twain song "You're the One." It speaks so much about our relationship, especially in the beginning, and of how we feel now. There's nothing more romantic than sending your loved one a song that echoes what you feel about them. Another one that my hubby sent to me recently is "All of Me" by John Legend. What an awesome romantic message! Here are some of the words for you in case you haven't taken note of them:
'Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I'll give my all to you
You're my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I'm winning
'Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you
I'm also giving away a $5 Amazon card to a lucky commenter on this blog. It's certainly the time for happiness and love!
