Riptide 1st Anniversary Celebration!!!!!

Welcome to Riptide Publishing's One Year Anniversary Celebration Kick Off! I can't believe it, one year old already. Wow. Seems like just yesterday they were here for their big grand opening.

How time flies when your reading fantabulous books!!!

Congratulations Riptide. You've done such a fabulous job this last year. Here's to many more!

Biggest squishy hugs to you guys. You rock mah socks.



Thanks for joining us on the first day of Riptide’s First Anniversary Blog Hop Bash!

All October long, we’ll be celebrating a year full of hot heroes, dark desires, and sexy circumstances—and who better to kick off the party than Riptide’s #1 cheerleader, the lovely Amara! –hugsquish- We couldn’t have done it without her!

Wondering what’s so special about our first anniversary party? Well, for starters, you should check out our schedule—all month, we’ll be stopping by to visit our friends, bloggers, and reviewers, and we’re bringing along tons of prizes.  Every single tour stop we make in October will give readers a chance to win $10 to spend at the Riptide store—that’s over $500 in store credit! Plus, one Grand Prize winner will receive a Kindle that we’ll be loading up with all of our 2013 releases! And all you have to do is comment on each blog stop to enter!

We’ll be bringing you guest posts, hilarious interviews, and behind-the-scenes looks at Riptide Publishing from our authors, staff, cover artists, and more. We’ll also be releasing details about exclusive discounts and sales. To kick off the anniversary, all titles published before August are now available for 15% off! Plus, for one week only, we’re holding our Original 8 Super Sale—a chance to purchase Riptide’s first 8 titles for 50% off list price! Already own some of these titles? Purchase them individually for 30% off!

See? It’s only the first day of our anniversary and we’re ready to party—we hope you are too! Make sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and on our website so you don’t miss any of the excitement this month. Plus, if you haven’t yet subscribed to our newsletter, Making Waves, sign up now—that’s where you’ll get exclusive updates about our weekly sales!

We’re so proud of the last year, but we couldn't have done it without you, our fabulous readers. We can’t wait to hear from you as we set off on our blog hop. What was your favorite moment of the last year with Riptide Publishing? Leave a comment at any of our tour stops and tell us which titles, authors, and covers you loved the most!

Woot! –Hands Amara cake-
*takes cake* Cake NOMNOM!
