Hello Herd Hops




Thank you to Herd Hops for hosting this interesting blog hop for the new year. Welcome to my blog. We're going to have fun today.

We’re ringing in the New Year with lots of giveaways! And by sharing some fun and wacky facts about ourselves. There’s a new giveaway at each stop so be sure to visit them all!

Here's the list of all the blogs taking part:





Here's a blurb of my story:

Renni has burned out from being on tour as the drummer of Eat Your Words. When she visits Nolan's spa at Block Island for a day, she impulsively applies for a position as the assistant massage therapist as a means to drop out of tour.

Nolan is taken aback by the woman in his office with pitch black hair and body piercings. He can't imagine her working in his spa, but her persistence fascinates him so he gives her the job - on one condition - she gets rids of the excess piercings.

The attraction between Nolan and Renni is immediate despite them being opposite personalities. Renni's fresh energy and charm draws Nolan as does his intensity attract her. Finding they have a lot more in common than expected, they fall in love, but Nolan has a secret and Renni carries baggage from past hurt. Will they focus on their differences or the things that draw them close?

You can win a copy of my ebook by commenting below. Please remember to put your email address in the comments.


Now, for the fun part - ten fun/silly/quirky things about me, my blog or my book:

1. The reason I chose Block Island as the setting for It's Called Feng Shui is because a fellow homeschooler from overseas sent me a huge package of interesting stuff from Rhode Island. I enjoyed going through it and learning more about a place in the US in detail. She even sent me a cotton seed to plant.

2. I have a secret obsession for tiny houses. I love watching tiny house videos on YouTube and dream of designing and building my own and retiring in it one day.

3. I absolutely hate escalators. They freak me out. Put me in an elevator rather where I'm safely closed in.

4. I keep on getting visitors to my blog from companies that sell wedding dresses because of this post: http://www.kathybosman.com/2013/03/wedding-gowns-from-60s-to-present-day.html

5. I've just got my first tattoo - of a peacock feather.

6. Even since I was pregnant with my third child I have an aversion to tuna casserole.

7. I'd much rather meet a spider than a cockroach. Spiders are cute really and I hate having to kill them in case they're venomous.

8. One day, I'd like to own a hedgehog as a pet.

9. I'm crazy about cats. They're the best! We own two amazing cats. Here they are:














10. I'm in the process of reading through the Harry Potter series.


Thank you for taking part!

  2. #6. I can't blame you there. I got sick after eating tuna casserole(don't think it was the food) and have not been able to eat it since. Just the name makes me feel a little ill.

  3. A fact about myself is that I like watching documentaries and I just don't understand why others don't. I can understand that some people don't like them because they've only seen boring ones, but there are a lot of fascinating ones out there!

  15. The Harry Potter movies were amazing. I can only imagine how good the books are.

    1. I'm also in the process of watching the movies. They're both good in different ways. The movies are more scary and the books have a lot more humour in them.

  17. Very exciting stuff you revealed about yourself, Kathy. Tattoos? As lovely as they look, I could not dream of getting one just yet, maybe when I'm grey, Lol! Please post a picture of your tattoo.

    Escalators are scary but I love the thought of gliding down without lifting my leg.

    And, I'm not scared of spiders. Lastly, I love the sound of your book. What is Feng Shui?

    1. I'm already grey, Stella! :) I'll have to do a post on my blog about my tattoo. It has special meaning to me.

      Feng Shui is an eastern philosophy about arranging the elements of a room to enhance the energy flow. The hero in my book is a bit obsessed with it.
