Get #MuggedByMadison 2016 #UglyCupContest

It’s that time of year again! The #RedCups are back at Starbucks. Let the holidays begin! That also means it’s time for the 2nd Annual Ugly Christmas Cup contest. What kind of Coffee Queen would I be if I didn’t offer awesome coffee prizes? No book purchase or review required. Just some awesome and crafty fun <3
First, let me remind all of you how this began. Last year, there was a HUGE uproar over the “ugly red cups” that was so insane and went global. So, my idea was to make them resemble ugly (or not) Christmas scenes. Sort of like an ugly sweater contest. Here’s a link to some of last year’s entries and also to the prize. One lucky winner was #MuggedByMadison.
https://www.facebook.com/madisonsevier12/posts/974299769380858

This year, we’re doing it again. Here are the details and the rules:
PLEASE PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO EACH ONE:
1.) Get your red cup from Starbucks. Even if you only order a sandwich or a cake pop, you can ask them for a cup. They’ll give it to you. Tell them what it’s for if you’d like.
2.) Decorate your cup. Be flashy, be bold, be sweet, be dark. It’s up to YOU. Just have fun with it.
3.) VERY IMPORTANT: Private message me the photo of your cup or email it to me at madisonsevier9 at gmail dot com with “UGLY CUP CONTEST” as the subject.
4.) To get as many votes as possible. You’ll be asked to share and tweet the link using #UglyCupContest #MuggedByMadison @MadisonSevier. You’ll want everyone to see the cups, right?

Disclaimer/Note: If your children are helping you design and decorate the cups…Do NOT let them use the hot glue gun. I’m not responsible for that. Please use caution. This is for fun and I’d hate to see anyone get hurt. If at all possible, use tacky glue or school glue.

**This will be a blind vote. Each photo will be given a number. Voters will “like” or comment on my website @ www.madisonsevier.com with the one they like the best.

ALL photos must be sent privately. (If we aren’t Facebook friends, please friend request me so that I can receive your photo.)

Contest begins: November 12, 2016. Please refrain from posting a status saying which photo is yours. We don’t want a popularity contest. That’s why this will be a blind vote. (Thank you). We want this to be fair for everyone. ENTRIES must be received no later than November 30, 2016. Voting begins December 1, 2016. Contest ends: December 12, 2016 at midnight EST. WINNER will the photo with the most votes. Winner will be notified by email and/or Facebook. WINNER will receive either A.) A Starbucks Christmas mug or Tumblr OR B.) A Starbucks gift card of equal value. Open Internationally. In the event of an international winner, that winner will automatically receive the Starbucks GC. 2nd prize, a Starbucks GC of $10 and 3rd prize, a Starbucks GC of $5.

Paper cups (red cups) only.
This contest is only affiliated with Madison Sevier, Author. Starbucks, Facebook and/or no other third party is affiliated with or responsible for the prize. That is the sole responsibility of Madison Sevier, Author.


HAVE FUN! I can’t wait to see how these new cups inspire your designs.
And I’m so excited to see who gets #MuggedByMadison this year <3

Have Fun and Talk To You Soon!
XOXOXO,

#Read2Feed It’s All About Helping Others

picsart_10-21-05-07-00

We all know there are many people who can’t afford a meal on most days and especially during the holiday season. Food banks are really taxed with all of the families and homeless in need during this time. There were times that my family visited food banks/pantries and I wouldn’t wish that on anyone.  It’s not easy to let go of your pride when it seems to be the only thing you have left. But–sometimes that’s exactly what you need to do to survive.

Because I cannot end homelessness in this country-though I truly wish I could–I will be donating non-perishable food items for every book I sell from now through December 16, 2016. My hope is to get many things donated in time for Christmas.

As you know, most of my books are priced at 99 cents, so your small purchase is helping others and that makes my heart happy…it should yours too.

If you choose to join me in this #Read2Feed food drive, know you have my absolute appreciation and admiration. I’ll keep you posted as sales come in and update each day. Photos of canned goods plus delivery will be posted on Facebook ♡

Who knows…this might turn into an all year long event.

If you’d like to help me help others, you can find my books at the locations below. Thank you from the bottom of my heart ♡

Coffee Diaries: October 2016

cropped-14524579_941417076002461_7571968821930411898_o.jpg

October 2, 2016

As you can see I’ve got a fabulous new logo. Graphics created by AWT Cover Designs and the tagline was created by fellow author and friend, Wendi Zwaduk. Isn’t it beautiful? It truly brings together everything that’s been a part of my publishing swag and career since 2010. It ties it all up nicely in a bright mug with a heart and I’m truly in love with it. Many thanks to both of those ladies for giving me something that I’ve been looking for for years. Mwah!

A Coffee Review:

The new Starbucks Mocha Caffè Lattè kit available at select stores.

Not one of my favorites by a long shot. This is a very sweet–think hot chocolate with a splash of coffee–sweet. My first attempt doesn’t really make me want to try again, but I’ll make it with less of the sweetened mocha mixture and see how it goes.

I also bought a bag of the Chiapas blend from #Starbucks a few weeks ago. Again, not really a favorite of mine. For being a medium roast, I felt it was much too dark for me and I prefer the Kopelani blend above it. Nothing I’ve tried has topped that Kopelani and now I know why it sells out so quickly. I’ll be double or triple stocking up next year. As of now, I still have six bags of it and I will be making it stretch as long as possible.

That’s it for this musing. Hope you’re all enjoying these first days of Fall ♡ Until next time,

XOXO

♡ Madison♡

Coffee Diaries: August 2016

August 14, 2016

My newest obsession is the Kopelani Blend from Starbucks.

13988092_910336149110554_474065376191794136_o

I’ve been stockpiling this seasonal life force since its release. A smooth, rich and never bitter goodness that’s very pleasing to the palate. Dark roast isn’t usually my favorite, but this time–it’s well worth stepping outside of my comfort zone. 

On a side note, I’ve released Phoenix, Asphalt Cowboys 2 early at All Romance. Some of you might ask why…Well, this book has brought more than its fair share of hurdles and obstacles. Many of those began back in March and hadn’t let up until about four days ago. The paperback version should be available this week also. Until then, if you’d like to have the ‘look’ of the paperback with a lower price–I suggest ordering it from All Romance:

https://www.allromanceebooks.com/product-phoenix-2087544-153.html

Their site allows a few things other retail sites don’t and i’m really pleased with the version that’s for sale there. Right now, the price is still 99 cents, but that ends after its official release week and will be $2.99. Renegade’s price will also go to its intended price.

No rest for the wicked…I’ve gotta get back to work. Feel free to drop me an email or find me on Facebook if you have any questions–or if you just want to say hi <3

XOXOXO,

Madison

Howdy, y’all ♡  Thanks for stopping by to check out this newest edition to my site. As you all know, I use the Sevier-ly Addicted to Romance tab to promote other authors as often as possible. Here, on this page, is where you’ll find occasional ramblings, recipes, updates or just some harmless fun from me.

We all see how crowded and sometimes down right cruel Facebook can be. I don’t know about you, but for myself, it’s often too much emotion to deal with. I do love visiting all of you there, so I won’t be leaving. (No such luck for those who wish otherwise. **evil grin**). However, I’ll be posting here more often. 

A few days ago, I came across that mug pictured at the top of this post and I couldn’t deny myself the instant gratification of owning yet another mug. But that didn’t stop me from also grabbing this one over the weekend. I mean, it’s gorgeous! How was I, an admitted #CoffeeQueen and mug hoarder, supposed to walk away from this?

IMG_20160723_115904

See what I mean? Now, tell me a little about yourself? Besides books, what types of things are your must-have items? I’ll check back to chat with you about them. For now, I have more work to get done with the #AsphaltCowboys. I can’t wait for you to meet all of them. Have you preordered your copy of Phoenix yet?

If you’ve read RENEGADE, Asphalt Cowboys 1, I’d love it if you could leave an honest review. Also, in my Facebook group, Sevier Addicts, I’m choosing a random person to receive a Burse by Ammy after we’ve reached fifty reviews. Just my way of saying thank you for your support.

#NewRelease Kissing Sassy by Gracen Miller: Part of Sassy Ever After (Kindle Worlds Novella) Kindle Edition

51GdyHiJ42L._SY346_

Amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/Sassy-Ever-After-Kissing-Novella-ebook/dp/B01LBMBFX6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1472686040&sr=8-1&keywords=kissing+sassy+by+gracen+miller

Wild and free, Cajun thought he was content.

Cajun Wolfe doesn’t have time for trouble in five-inch stilettos, but that’s what he gets in the form of Hollywood’s leading lady. When Olivia Scott waltzes into Blue Creek’s shifter bar seeking his expertise for help with a stalker, Cajun’s convinced she’s a thrill seeker and he scorns her request. Soon he realizes he might’ve just met his match in a human, who also happens to be his mate. Olivia’s not just sassy, stubborn, and unpredictable, she has a temper to match his too.

Then Olivia showed him what he was missing.

Olivia Scott has had it with arrogant men. Cajun scoffing at her genuine need for help is the final straw. Determined to find another that’ll take her seriously, she storms off only to be attacked in the parking lot. Playing the part of unlikely hero, Cajun defeats her assailants. Meeting her mate in the form of a snarly wolf-shifter with a bad attitude is rotten luck. He’s also a weakness she can’t afford.

Trouble never looked so fun…

Their troubles are only beginning. A new danger arises and Olivia’s secrets are revealed. Can Cajun convince her to gamble on a mating so inconceivable it might just be a pairing that’ll save the world? Or will all be lost?

…or came with so much baggage.

Gracen is a hopeless daydreamer masquerading as a “normal” person in southern society. When not writing, she’s a full-time basketball/football/guitar mom for her two sons and a devoted wife to her real-life hero-husband. She has an unusual relationship with her muse, Dom, but credits all her creative success to his brilliant mind. She’s addicted to writing, paranormal romance novels and movies, Alabama football and coffee…addictions are not necessarily in order of priority. She’s convinced coffee is nectar from the gods and when blending coffee and writing together it generates the perfect creative merger. Many of her creative worlds are spawned from coffee highs and Dom’s aggressive demands.

#NewRelease: SAM by Susan Fisher-Davis

SAM_digital front cover final_3 600 x 876

Check out the newest HOT release from Susan Fisher-Davis. SAM is here and he’s like no other sheriff you’ve ever met.

Everyone tells Sheriff Sam Garrett to find a good woman and settle down. When he sets his sights on Clifton’s veterinarian, he fears she despises him yet he’s desired her from the first moment they met. She is quite possibly the only woman in town who isn’t attracted to him which might be why he wants her even more.

Tessa McGuire has a secret and she fears anyone learning it, especially Sam who she can’t seem to resist even though she knows she should. After arresting her for outstanding warrants, desire fuels their mutual needs to the point where neither can resist its pull. Once they start seeing each other, she’s happier than she’s ever been but knows she should tell him the truth.

Tessa wants Sam to be happy, but wanting him for her own is dangerous because her secret could change everything… When her secret comes out, Tessa’s life and hopes fall apart, possibly putting everyone around her in danger. What once was a hopeful relationship with Sam comes to a heartbreaking end. Now can she win him back and save what they had?

Excerpt From Sam:

Sam blew out a breath and took a seat in one of the wingback chairs in front of the desk. He watched her walk around her desk and sit down. She shuffled papers around to find the folder she wanted and then proceeded to make notes on a sheet of paper she’d removed. He couldn’t take his eyes off her. She was exquisite, even wearing her glasses. The red blouse was unbuttoned just enough to where he was able to see the tops of her breasts. Shit! His dick hardened. When he raised his eyes to her face, he found her looking at him. A small smile lifted her lips.

“You’re evil as fuck and slowly killing me…and you know it, Tessa,” Sam muttered. Her husky laugh had him wanting to jump the desk, lay her across it, and have his way with her. She stood and walked around the desk and sat on the edge of it across from him. He swallowed hard.

“I don’t want to kill you, Sam. That would be such a waste,” she said in a low voice.

He couldn’t take his eyes off those long legs. When she raised one and placed a red stiletto clad foot on the arm of his chair, he about came right there. He could see under her skirt to the small strip of lace barely covering her. His eyes met hers. Tessa leaned toward him and ran her hand over his shoulder and he almost died when she raised the other leg and placed her foot on the other side of him. His dick wanted to explode. Those red stilettos were killing him. Without taking his eyes from hers, he wrapped his hands around each ankle and grinned when he felt her shiver. He slowly moved his hands up her calves, to behind her knees, and up her thighs then he stood and moved between her legs. Leaning toward her, he placed his lips on her neck. When his fingers ran along the elastic in her panties, she moaned.

“Are these new, Tessa?” he asked as his finger pulled on the elastic.

“No,” she said breathlessly.

       “Good,” he whispered right before he ripped them from her, making her gasp.

BIO:

Susan is an Amazon best-selling author. She was born and raised in Cumberland, MD. and moved to Tennessee in 1996 with her husband and they now live in a small town outside of Nashville, along with their two rescued dogs.

“JAKE” is the first book of eight in The Men of Clifton, Montana series. Although, writing for years, she never submitted to publishers. It was in 2014 that she decided to submit to publishers and received several offers and signed a three year contract with Secret Cravings Publishing. Recently, SCP closed their doors and Susan was approached by several publishers and now publishes through Blue Whiskey Publishing.

She is a huge Nashville Predators hockey fan. She also enjoys fishing, taking drives down back roads, visiting Gatlinburg, TN and Cherokee, NC.

Her second series, The Bad Boys of Dry River will consist of six books, beginning with “LUCAS”. Although Susan’s books are a series, each book can be read as standalone books. Each book will end with a HEA and a new story beginning in the next one. Some epilogues may give a preview to the next book. Characters from each book will interact. Susan is working on another series, The Callahans, which will consist of three cousins. She would love to hear from her readers and promises to respond to all.
