#FunFriday & #Giveaway – Running of the Bull . . . Dogs that Is!

It’s that time of year for the running of the bulls in Pamplona. You’ve probably seen news stories about people being gored or injured as they try to outrun the large bulls on narrow Spanish streets. The practice began when cattle had to be transported from one location to another and local youths would run and dodge in front of them to show how brave they were.

But now, there is another fearful animal to dodge: the bulldogs. This commercial from Geico is hysterical! Click here if you cannot see the Geico Running of the Bulldogs commercial below.

Bradley Beach Inspiration #AtTheShore #WriteWed

Good morning and Happy Hump Day! I’ve shared some other inspiration for Sea Kiss, the fictional Jersey Shore town in the At the Shore Contemporary Romance series. Today I’m sharing another one of the towns, Bradley Beach, that inspired some elements in the story, like the gazebos behind the Pierce and Sinclair mansions.

I love Bradley Beach and spending time there. It’s a quiet family kind of town with a lovely paved boardwalk, gardens along the ocean block, a lovely fountain and of course, its signature gazebos. Some of the highlights of the summer there for me include their Memorial Day parade with an assortment of bands as well as the fabulous 4th of July fireworks. I just love fireworks and was so happy to see some on the cover of One Summer Night.

So for today’s Write Wednesday, a short video with highlights from Bradley Beach!

Here is a little blurb for the story! You can download the free read here: http://www.instafreebie.com/free/mpx6b
