John J. Davis is the author of the Granger Spy Novel series, including Blood Line and the soon to be published sequel, Bloody Truth, available Spring 2015.

Davis grew up in the Southeastern US and after university traveled extensively in North America during his career as a regional sales rep and independent broker for leaders in the transportation, shipping and pharma industries. His years sitting in lobbies and airports honed his skill for human observation and fed his talent for writing fast-paced, character-driven stories.

His inspiration for the Granger family-of-spies comes from the people he has known and his family roots in the Carolinas–the extraordinarily strong and gentle women and men, whose lives are defined by the love, trust and respect for family. Currently at work on the third Granger Spy Novel and a screenplay, Davis lives near Atlanta with his wife, daughter and two dogs.




Good luck and happy winning!

Maggie Bags Cicily Tote #Giveaway, Holiday Shoppers Gift guide 2014 #BloggerBuzz

Brought to you by Maggie Bags and Terri’s Little Haven.

Today starts day 1 of my Christmas Gift Guide 2014 and I will be posting my reviews of the products I recommend for your holiday shopping. First up is a Maggie Bags Cicily Tote. I have two Cicily Totes because I love the size for one and because I love the style for two. After receiving my newest tote, I purchased a matching Maggie Bags wallet to coordinate. I love having coordinated accessories as I’m sure a lot of you do as well.

My tote came packaged really well so I didn’t have to worry about it becoming damaged or getting dirty in transit.

The inside is lined with the famous purple logo lining that my cranberry Cicily Tote & cranberry wallet has in it as well. My cranberry tote and matching wallet…

It has a zippered compartment on one side and several slots on the other for holding things like my phone, business cards, pens, etc.

The bottom sports 4 metal feet to keep my bag off of dirty places where I might set it down at.

The outside is just as stylish as the inside and is made with seatbelt material. Everyone that has seen my bag always asks if it’s one of “those seatbelt handbags” and of course I let them know where I got mine and where they can get theirs.

I wanted to show my wallet but a wallet is not included in this giveaway. I purchased mine as stated above and you can do the same with a promo code I’ll include at the bottom of this post. 20% off savings adds up.

The wallet fits in my tote perfectly and I still have plenty of room for everything I think I can’t leave home without.

Both the wallet and handbag are sporting the Maggie Bags logo.

So stylish and so well made. My Maggie Bags Cicily Tote will outlast me. That’s a sad thought lol.

If you want to skip the giveaway and go ahead and make your Maggie Bags purchase or purchases, please use promo code HGGHAVEN for 20% savings which is good towards any purchase except clearance items. You can use this code between now and 12/21/2014.

All aboard with Atlantic Luggage Win a Trip to New York City or San Diego, California

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Atlantic Luggage for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Holidays for us always means traveling to other states to spend time with our family members that are scattered about.  I really enjoy traveling especially when I have quality made {cute} luggage.  Speaking of luggage, Atlanta Luggage has a sweepstakes going on that I’ve entered and I hope you will as well, because if I don’t win, I’d love for you to, lol.  If you like to travel as much as I do, you’ll love the prize:  a family trip to New York City or San Diego, California.


I don’t know which destination I would want to go to the most, that would be a hard choice.  Ultimately, I hope I’ll have the opportunity to visit both of these great states one day, but, if I had to choose which one I would want to visit first, I think it would be the trip to New York City.  I have always wanted to ride a horse and carriage through Central Park. It’s a dream I’ve had for  many years now.   It would be so romantic to see Central Park in an open-air carriage ride. And did I mention it’s a trip for 4? You could take another couple with you or your kids.  I’d take the kids because a chance of a lifetime, to get out of the country and go to a city as large and beautiful as I’ve seen photos of New Your to be, doesn’t come around every day.

Let me fill you in a little bit about  Atlantic Luggage before you take off and try to win my spot in the sweepstakes, ha. Their luggage is quality made and I’ve always been impressed with their great reputation.  They offer luggage for any and everyone.  For me I love the rolling uprights because it’s hard for me to carry luggage with my back injuries.  They also offer quality spinners, AND stylish garment bags.  They have beautiful totes which I’d use for my carry-on option. They also have hardsides, duffels and business cases.  Whew, that’s a lot of luggage to choose from and again, this company has a stellar reputation and their products are made with the best quality fabrics, and hey, they are really affordable.

Back to the sweepstakes.  Here’s a few more details before you head over to Atlanta Luggage to try to win this trip for 4. The sweepstakes will run from October 15th through November 15th and you won’t have to wait long to see if you are the lucky winner of this prize valued at $3,700.  A winner will be selected within a mere 7 to 10 days so be watching to see if you are the lucky family that will receive this trip for 3 days and 2 nights.  There is a deadline on when the trip has to be taken but you’ll have plenty of time to  plan your ultimate vacation to your destination choice before it needs to be booked (9/30/15).  The trip will need to be taken by 10/31/15 and again, that’s plenty of time to plan ahead.

The grand prize winner and their 3 guests will be traveling in style with Delta.  We flew on Delta on our last trip to Texas and we really enjoyed the flight and crew.  Please note the grand prize package trip certificate is valid for round-trip economy air transportation (valued at up to $450 per ticket), for the Grand Prize winner and 3 guests, from a major U.S. airport serviced by Delta Air Lines.  The airport location will be determined by Delta (they will try to select the one nearest to the lucky winner’s home). You will fly from the nearest major U.S. airport serviced by Delta Air Lines near New York City or San Diego, CA (as chosen by winner and determined by sponsor).  Not only will you receive air flight tickets, you will also be provided with hotel accommodations at a participating Delta Vacations hotel in New York City or San Diego, California.  On top of this, the grand prize winner will receive 4 Atlantic® carry-on sized suitcases and $300 allowance to spend on their choice of Delta Vacations Tour or Activity packages.

Please leave me a comment telling me which trip option you would select if you are the lucky winner (and if you are I’m going to be so jealous) then click on the following link to enter for a chance to win this amazing family trip to New York City or San Diego, California. Good luck to each of you.  This will be a trip of a lifetime for the winner and their guests. Click here to Enter to win a family trip.

Space Scouts Monthly Subscription Box for Kids Giveaway #SpaceScouts #BloggerBuzz Holiday Shopers Gift Guide 2014

Brought to you by Space Scouts LLC and Terri’s Little Haven.

Monthly subscription boxes are becoming really popular because they are such a unique gift idea. I visit a lot of sites when I’m searching for products to give as gifts and I’ve noticed the increase of the monthly subscription box clubs. I have been trying some monthly subscription boxes out myself because a gift is fun to give but 12 gifts are 12x the fun. I’m featuring several unique subscription box plans in my Holiday Shoppers #BloggerBuzz gift guide as gift ideas. But for today, I have a subscription plan that I think you would be interested in and you might want to go ahead and order it, just because. Who needs a reason to send a gift? Not me. This particular monthly subscription box service is just for kids and especially kids who loves learning about space.

We are having all kinds of space fun here at Terri’s Little Haven. We have been scouting the outer space with ROXY and JETT. ROXY and JETT are featured in the Space Scouts monthly subscription box for kids.

Space Scouts Month at a Glanse

The first month they sent a lunchbox for the backdrop of all of the future boxes. It’s made with a quality metal material and is so colorful and illustrated, boys and girls alike will love this lunch box. In fact, it’s going with me to a trip to the zoo next week. That’s right, ROXY and JETT are going to go see and meet some interesting new furby friends. I want the chance to share this subscription box serivice and what better way to share than to use it :). I’ll be the coolest mimi there with my lunchbox.

Space Scouts

It’s so pretty, it’s really out of this world. All I need is a space suit.

Space Scouts

Are the stars out tonight?

Space Scouts

Who is ready for a trip to the moon?

Space Scouts

Up, up and away.

Space Scouts

Terri’s Little Haven is happy to be in the “cosmic-cool” crowd.

Space Scouts

We’re scouting outer space. Won’t you join us?

Space Scout

I wonder how many stars we’ll see tonight…

It really is all that.

And, a bag of “twists”..

We’ll keep this element of surprise, a surprise.

Flight 3-2-1 to the moon is now ready for boarding at gate number twelve.


We’re ready for our next adventure.

Can you believe all of the fun learning activities that are included in the subscription? We have had so much fun with the exciting challenges. I’m all for any company that provides hands-on discovery methods. There are so many space wonders to be explored and who better to increase our kids interest than Space Scouts? Growing up, I went through a phase when I wanted to become an astronaut. That was until I realized just how much I’m afraid of heights. That hasn’t stopped my love of learning about space.

I love the magnets that are included each month. Sometimes we put them on the inside of the lunch box AKA our launch pad. Sometimes we put them on the outside.

Next up.

Can you locate the big dipper with your children?

Tonight in our outer space travels, we’ll be learning about gravity…

…and astronauts.

Follow Space Scouts on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.

We are going to continue our outer space adventures and I hope you will spike your own children’s interest as well. Space Scouts is providing my followers the exciting chance to win a 3 month package from their monthly box subscription.
