The Next Big Thing Blog Hop – Part One

Aloha, Bloghoppers!  Welcome to TotallyTawn, a place where you can get a glimpse inside my mind, and hopefully, share a laugh or two.  I want to thank Tof Eklund for including me in The Next Big Thing Blog Hop, and ask that all of you to drop by and peruse his little corner of the web.

My blog contains everything from recollections of my favorite freight pilot memories to fictional short stories.  If you look hard enough, you can find my very first blog post, discover my favorite chick flick (300, although Skyfall is now a contender… I’ll have to write about that), and witness me indulge in a bit of self promotion every now and again.

I’ve been very busy for the past year working on my adult modern fantasy/action eSeries Darkling Drake; my children’s eSeries, The Pirate Princess and subsequent Mini-eSeries that will very soon be compiled and published in paperback, ebook and audiobook format; and even a BigWorldNetwork.com Valentine’s Day special, Love Never Dies: A Zombie Love Story.  I’m planning on continuing to contribute more stories to BigWorldNetwork.com in the future, and I am very grateful for the opportunity to publish my work and share it with all of you in such an innovative format.

I will post Part Two of The Next Big Thing Blog Hop in a week.  In it, I will answer a few questions about myself and my work, and have links to other bloggers that I’d love for you to meet.  If you would like to participate, drop me a line at tkmakela@gmail.com, and I’ll give you the 411.

Thank you for stopping by!

Shameless Self Promotion Time

When I began this whirlwind adventure into the world of writing, I never imagined that I would not only want people to see my work, but I would offer a bribe to gain readers.

Here’s the skinny – each new SUBSCRIBER to http://www.bigworldnetwork.com/Darklingdrake.html and/or http://bigworldnetwork.com/thepirateprincess.html will be entered in a random drawing for a $25 iTunes gift card!

Subscribe and WIN

One prize will be awarded per series and if you also LIKE the series page, you will be given an extra chance to win!

The sweepstakes ends Saturday, December 17th at midnight CST and I will draw the winners on Sunday December 18th. Winners will be notified via the email address entered for the subscription, so invalid email addresses will be disqualified.  You must be 18 to enter the Darkling Drake sweepstakes.

Thank you for reading and GOOD LUCK!

LAUNCH!!

If I’ve been distant these last few months, I want you to know that it’s not you.  It’s me.

I’m in love.  Toni Drake and Princess Penelope Puffinstuff have captured my heart and driven me to distraction.

I want to share them with you.  I also want to introduce you to some new friends and an exciting new format.   Don’t be shy.  You’re friends can come, too!

Happy Launch Day, Big World Network!  And thank you for believing in me!

Happy Launch Day!
