Book Blast and Giveaway: Frequent Traveller

From the blue oceans of Antigua to the bustling streets of Vietnam, the racing adrenaline at the Green Hell, the devastating natural disaster in Japan and the stunning architecture in Germany, Cathy Dixon finds herself in a whirlwind of fine dining, plush clothes and sheer extravagance.
But is perfection a mask for untold disaster? What is Cathy's secret and how will her world change when the world knows? Will her secrets ever catch up with her or will Cathy continue to sail alongside perfection in the world she has created for herself as a Frequent Traveller?
In conjunction, with the launch of MoonStar Luxury's new website (http://moonstarluxury.com/), we invite you to step into Cathy Dixon's world where more goodies, surprises and a little mystery awaits.
Frequent Traveller, the first book in the Cathy Dixon series will be free from 31 May to 4 June 2012. (Amazon link http://www.amazon.com/Frequent-Traveller-Cathy-Dixon-ebook/dp/B0067BKK6K)

First Blog Award: Liebster Blog Love

I was just awarded my first blog award ya'll!  Joy from Joy's Book Blog nominated me for this cool award.  Thank you so much Joy for my first award.  I love it!  Thank you!
You know I had to so a little snooping around found out a few things about this award.  
The blogger from The Loving Path says..."The origins of the Liebster Blog Award are unclear…but as Melissa shared, “the word translates from German as “darling” or “beloved”. It’s given to bloggers who have less than 200 followers in order to generate some traffic for them.”  So this is just not a book blogger thing but all blogs are included in this award.  
According to Joy who nominated me, there are 4 rules to follow when receiving the Liebster Blog Love Award:
1. Thank the one who nominated you by linking back.
2. Nominate five blogs with fewer than 200 followers. 
3. Let your nominees know by leaving a comment on their sites.
4. Add the award image to your site.
So with no further yacking...lol...here are the 5 nominees.
