Well, once again they’ve asked me to be an ambassador. I was hoping for the Court of St. James or maybe some country with a nice villa on the Mediterranean for an embassy. But no. My ambassadorship will be a bit more limited. At least it doesn’t involve hunkering down in a hot sweaty hovel somewhere in the middle east while thousands of enraged terrorists storm the gates, shake AK-47’s and chant “death to America” while I wait for the Marines to arrive. (Recalling recent history, I may wait a long time).
No, this time it’s the Sci-Spanks blog hop. It’s all for writers who write Sci-Fi spanking romance. Now, as it turns out, I happen to be one of those, but I’m not a featured author. So, I will take this opportunity to shamelessly plug my own Sci-Fi spanking romances, The Menace from Mongo and Pendragon’s Lash, featured in the side bar to your right. Again, I’m an “ambassador,” which as near as I can tell, is part of the advance PR team having no State Department function whatsoever. No beachfront villa involved. However, there are prizes. Read on.

Many authors also will offer a contest on their individual blogs. Your comment on their blogs automatically enters you in both the main contest and the individual contests!
What’s the catch? Absolutely nothing! We love writing for you and want to thank you for your readership. Perhaps someone might get a spanking or two, but that’s a reward rather than a catch, right? 😉
Here are the rules:
1. Visit each blog between Wednesday, June 25 and Sunday, June 29 to read the posted stories and excerpts.
2. Leave a comment answering the story question on each blog. You will receive one entry per blog for the grand prize drawing. You will also be automatically entered in that author’s individual contest, if she has one.

You will earn THREE bonus entries toward the grand prize. (Yes, we will be doing this again. Yes, if you successfully complete the Love Spanks 2014 challenge you can become a VIP for our next activity!)
6. If you are an published writer/author, please add “W” to your comments. That way, your name will be entered in the special author prize drawings.
