Win a super cool moon nightlight in the #FreebieFriday #BlackFriday drawing

It’s Freebie Friday AND Black Friday, so I have a special prize drawing. A moon nightlight!

In Hunted by the Cyborg (Cy-Ops Sci-fi Romance 6), several critical scenes occur on Earth’s moon, so I thought it would be fun to have a moon-centered giveaway. Plus, I bought one of these moon lights for myself, and I love it. It glows white or amber, and is about the size of a softball.

Prize giveaway rules:
1. Answer the question posted below. Post your answer in the comments (answers posted on Facebook don’t qualify).

2. Be sure to leave an email address so I can contact you if you win. I do not save blog/drawing email addresses.

Name something you associate with the moon.

[This can be a fact about the moon, a song title, a movie, a book, anything.]

The inspiration for this month’s Freebie Friday is: Hunted by the Cyborg

Billionaire Carter Aymes, director of Cyber Operations, a covert cyborg force, devotes his wealth and life to saving others, rescuing hostages and other victims from desperate situations. His ultimate mission is to hunt down and eliminate Lamani, the alien terrorist mastermind, before he conquers the galaxy.

When Carter hires Beth O’Shea, a vulnerable but courageous woman with connections to his past, their attraction is immediate and strong, but he knows getting involved with her is a bad idea. He’s her boss, and he has way too many classified projects to protect to risk letting someone get close.

Rejected by the progenitors who cloned her, Beth is determined to live a normal human life, beginning by getting an ordinary job with a security firm. But, from the start, she questions the extraordinary secrecy surrounding the organization. She can’t help but wonder about the tall, muscled, larger-than-life director who gave her a chance when she desperately needed one. Could he ever be romantically interested in a woman like her, in a clone?

When Beth is attacked, they both realize how short and tenuous life is, and their mutual attractions becomes to powerful too resist.

As their relationship heats up, so does the urgency to capture Lamani before he can unleash a stealth weapon at a critical planetary Summit meeting. With time running out, Carter discovers that stopping Lamani may require sacrificing Beth’s life.

Will Carter be able to rescue her, or will his new love be the one person he can’t save?

  1. Mary Preston says:

    When I was a child I always imagined that I could actually see the face of the man who lived in the moon.


  2. Cathy Pollard says:

    The first thing that comes to mind for me is the original classic sci-fi novel about going to the moon, “From the Earth to the Moon (Jules Verne 1865)”

  3. Lorena says:

    I think of Sting’s song, “Moon Over Bourbon Street.”

  4. Lisa Medley says:

    Van Morrison’s song “Well, it’s a marvelous night for a moondance.”

  5. Dawn says:

    The brilliance of reflected light. Love the contrast of light and in a dark sky.

  6. joyce jette says:

    Well whenever my husband Bob was in the hospital I would tell him look out the window at 10 and know I’m looking too. I told him we’ll always be close and never far from each other. Now that he’s an angel I still look at the moon and know he’s close and never far

  7. Lea Kirk says:

    As a child, I had a “moon ball” similar to this one. It glowed in the dark and was my favorite toy. Sadly, it was lost in one of our many moves.

    • Cara Bristol says:

      I lost a few favored childhood possession, too. I hate that. Good luck with the drawing! Maybe you’ll be the lucky random winner.

  8. I hear “Between the Moon and New York City” when I look up at a full moon

  9. Amy Storch says:

    I think of the Credence Clearwater Revival song “Bad Moon Rising”. For some baffling reason I also think of the lagoon scene on the movie, ‘The Little Mermaid”, when Ariel and the Prince are on the boat at night and have their first kiss. Odd, huh?

  10. Shifter452 says:

    I think if cheese.
    Who came up with that… The moon is made of cheese?
    Makes no sense and the moon doesn’t even look like it.

  11. Robin Thompson says:

    The song Moon River & werewolves

  12. AnnaM. says:

    Hi! My first thought is sitting outside as a kid, cuddling my German Shepherd, and staring at the moon and stars.

    Thanks for the giveaway! I love your stories.

  13. KJ Van Houten says:

    Oh so many things! As a kid I’d go outside and talk to the moon at night! (Ok maybe I still do when it’s full…) We lived in the country so not a lot of light pollution and the moon and stars were so bright! I taught one of my nieces to say ‘moon’ as one of her earliest words. One evening, she was about 3, she went running across a field outside my parents house. I asked where she was going. “To the moon!” Then there’s mythology – I often used Selene as an online username for virtual sites. I took intro to Astronomy under Harlan Smith who was a big proponent of lunar colonization. I attended some panels where he debated Sagan on Moon vs Mars for initial colonization. Actually attended a dinner with Smith and Sagan along with a dozen other students, a highlight for sure! One of those other students was the nephew of Michael Collins, the astronaut who stayed in orbit while Armstrong and Aldrin stepped on the moon for the first time. Oops, I was supposed to say one thing, I’ve rambled on too much!

  14. Emily johnson says:

    I love moonlight dances

  15. SuzyFren says:

    For me when I think of the the moon , I think of the first moon landing and moon walk in 1969 by Neil Armstrong. I wanted to be an astronaut and explore space when I was a kid. That’s why I have a fascination with scifi romance ❤️

  16. Katrina Dehart says:

    Werewolves, tides, romantic kisses

  17. Marypat Soto says:

    The song Moon River comes to mind. Plus I am teaching my 3 1/2 year old granddaughter about the moon.

  18. Betsy Sloan says:

    I think of a clear, night sky with bright stars and a beautiful moon. Peaceful.

  19. Kimber Hellmers says:

    Childhood memories! I remember when I was ‘very young’, and my parents had a whole bunch of people over to the house and they said they were watching people land onthe moon. I ran outside and kept shouting, “I see them! I see them!”. Now I’m just toally fascinated with space in general. But every time I look at the moon, I wonder what I was thinking that day.

  20. Donnatella Palermo says:

    Moonstruck is the movie that immediately popped into my head as I read the question to answer for this special drawing. I loved the whole story and have watched the movie over 15 times, it never gets old. I even make eggs and bread like they did in the movie and call them Moonstruck eggs. Thank you for this opportunity, the moon lamp looks very cool.

  21. I thought of the song lyrics to “Spacebound” by Eminem because my hubby always would sing that song to me when we first got together! Going on 5+ years now!

  22. Kay Theriault says:

    Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata…or Billie Holliday’s What a Little Moonlight Can Do….


  23. Darlene says:

    I remember watching the moonwalk when the astronauts walked on it and I was mesmerized. To think someone walked on the moon! And did you ever see a beautiful harvest moon? That’s a beautiful moon! I love this light and would love to have it!

  24. Mia L. says:

    I think of the song, “Moon River” which I sang a few years ago at a performance.

  25. Michael Whitmill says:

    I’m going to show my age here:
    Don’t Let the Stars Get in Your Eyes (Perry Como)

    Don’t let the stars get in your eyes
    Don’t let the moon break your heart
    Love blooms at night
    In daylight it dies ….

    etc. (There are more references)

  26. Stephanie F. says:

    I think about camping in the desert with my family when I was younger. We would pack up the VW van and the weekend camping in the middle of the desert. It was beautiful during the day but at night it was gorgeous, the moon, the stars, the night blooming flowers, it was amazing.

  27. The moon is a constant in my life. In all the bad things I and my brothers went through as children and young adults it was always there changing on a schedule, shining at night to brighten our night. I’d sit and watch it on Indiana summer nights and daydream about going to outer space, living on the moon, wondering what the liens that lived there looked like. Many of my favorite movies are themed around the moon, The First Men in the Moon being my top favorite. Even now in my 60s I watch the moon and stars whenever I can, remembering back when I spent many a pleasant hour as a kid looking at that beautiful orb in the sky.

  28. Alice Manchego Fernandez says:

    I always been fascinated by the Moon. When I was child I use to think she was watching me and following all the time. Especially when I saw her when I was in my parents car. I felt sleepy, close my eyes for a second and she was still there.
    When the clouds hide her , I felt sad because I loose my friend. In fact , I though she was mine and the other child had their own. Especially when I told them that I could see a face on her but my friends saw nothing. It reminds me a little sparkle of magic from my childhood, when everything was possible , fly with the birds , touching the stars …even being friend with the moon ..

  29. Cait Day says:

    Star and moon gazing on our farm as children. It brings back lots of great memories.

  30. Kristy moran says:

    I love the moon. I always think of romantic walks when i see moonlight.

  31. Jolene Cody says:

    I will always think of my grandmother when I hear someone refer to the moon or when I see the moon. She recently passed away. But during her stay in the hospital and nursing home every night she would ask I the moon was out, and to open the curtains to see it. She would be quite upset if she couldn’t. It was actually funny at the time (You had to know my grandmother’s personality). Any way, I now too look for that moon now that she’s gone because I know she has a front row seat to it every night.

  32. Deanne Taylor says:

    I work retail so I’m always thinking uh oh, what’s gonna happen this full moon!
    Never boring

  33. Jule Kijek says:

    I always think of men shredding their clothes as they turn into werewolves. It started with Lon Chaney Jr in the classic movie The Werewolf.
